Showbiz lingo: ‘Star-inspired’

‘FASCINATED’ – Seems that Highspeed readers always look forward to showbiz-lingo items. They claim they’re always “fascinated” by such words (or terms) as Luz Valdez (loser) and Rica Peralejo (rich, moneyed).

Must be said, though – again and again – showbiz lingo is more rhyme than reason. The real Luz Valdez is definitely no loser. On the contrary, she’s a winner (Winnie Santos – or Winnie Cordero or Winnie Monsod).
