To ease up the anxiety brought by lock-in taping, Female Talent (FT) brought Her Staff (HS) to the location. The production team was informed and agreed to the arrangement. FT took care of the related expenses of HS. Other Talent (OT) noticed that HS came in a dress code. FT explained that HS would not be mistaken as extras given that they were differently dressed.

As work progressed, OT noticed that the food of HS was limited to noodles and canned goods. Although convenient, OT felt nutrition was not highly regarded by FT for the people who work with her. Once in a while, OT would send cooked food to HS secretly. OT did not want to have any conflict with FT.

For a scene, the production needed someone to play the household personnel. Noticing HS, the production head told FT if they could hire HS. FT agreed and of course, the chance to join a shoot excited HS. Later, OT overheard FT talking to HS about their talent fee. OT was stunned. FT allegedly said that the talent fee of HS would already account for their monthly salary. Further, the talent fee was higher than their monthly household pay.

OT was quite disappointed at the attitude of FT towards HS and she had to talk to someone in the production about her colleague’s behavior.

All About Timing

Friendly Celebrity (FC) invited Male Visitor (MV) to stay with him and His Benefactor (HB). MV was touched by the generosity of FC and thus, accepted the offer. There was no need to hide their true selves, as both have kept each other’s secrets during their careers. Moreover, MV just wanted to unwind and break away from locked-in tapings.

One time, FC asked MV to have a drink with him and HB. When MV was tipsy, FC and HB led him to the bedroom. MV felt he had no choice and went in. The three had a grand time with each other. Come morning, FC told MV that if he needed bookings, he had contacts who could pay well. MV laughed at the idea but still took the work opportunity. After earning more than enough from his bookings, MV bid farewell to FC. FC was surprised, but MV had his reasons, which he did not disclose.

MV was tired, as HB wanted intimacy daily. HB even said that he preferred him over FC. The thought made MV fearful, as FC might not like that idea and get mad. MV feared that FC might suddenly out him, something he’s not prepared for. Moreover, MV did not like the booking lifestyle. Leaving the couple was his best option. The timing was right, as no controversy has happened among the three of them.
