Over the past years, Emerging Hunk (EH) has been enjoying the breaks given to him by his management. He has been cast in several well-received projects of his station. Critics have noticed EH for his acting skills and fans have been receptive of his efforts to improve his craft.

Despite the fame, EH has successfully kept his private life away from the scrutiny of fans and other interested parties. Sometimes, his name gets dragged in work-related narratives and EH answers his issues hurled at him with safe, showbiz answers. He shuns questions on his love life and stresses focus on his career. Thus, EH seems to be the perfect talent, that is, having no scandalous secret that can tarnish one’s showbiz reputation.

By contrast, the grapevine is not silent on EH’s secret. Allegedly, EH is treading the path other male talents have followed. He has someone whom he can rely on even if his career becomes warm and he is no longer prioritized for a role. Rumors have it that EH has a benefactor by his side. Of course, the fans cannot be privy of EH’s lifestyle and his benefactor has to be kept in the closet to protect his manly image and future reel love teams believable.

Naughty Boy

Management saw potential in Naughty Boy (NB) such that they gave him a break that many of his contemporaries can only dream of. For hundreds of hopefuls, NB was lucky as producers chose to invest in him by making him the next big find of his management. NB, however, has seen another path and is sending signals that he’s about to take his break for granted. NB’s heart is more powerful than his head.

NB was smitten with Female Talent (FT), but the problem is that the management had set her on a path that excluded NB. NB cannot let go of FT as rumors indicated they had shared something special. Hence, NB wants to be with FT as they develop their careers.

Meanwhile, another rumor is that NB was partly responsible for the rerouting of Male Talent (MT)’s career path. When NB and MT were working on a project, an adventure happened. Drunk NB and MT did something that should not have been done during work. They were too intoxicated and gave in to physical desires. Allegedly, NB and MT kissed passionately, with NB thinking he was engaging his lips with a female.
