Ah, showbusiness. What is up?! First, there's Ruffa Gutierrez revealing John Lloyd Cruz’ relationship inhibitions, and then there's the KC Concepion- Piolo Pascual break-up, and most recently Mo Twister inadvertently giving Rhian Ramos a career nightmare. Those are three relationships, six high profile showbiz personalities whose careers aren't so much in jeopardy, as they are in a spiral; downward or outward, only time will tell.

There’s one thing we’ve got to admit. We are curious. There. We said it. We are curious. Who did what? Who did whom? Who went out with whom? Who went out at all? While artists are now more open, tell-alls, we noticed, don't really tell much. We want to know the truth and nothing but.

Maybe these celebrities are tired of staying on the good and glamorous side of the fence. Call it what you want—airing of dirty laundry, emptying of closets, telling the truth—it doesn't really matter.

What matters is seeing the industry and the personalities evolve. Did you ever think you'd see the day when they themselves would break the fourth wall? Neither did we. We guess, this is entertainment?
