What The Tatler Nose Overheard From The Society Grapevine #4: A Lousy Businessman, A Friend Forgotten And An Unbecoming Heir
A novice F&B entrepreneur, who is the son of a well-known hospitality family, showed his lack of business ethics and integrity when he was exposed for not paying his suppliers for almost two years. Matters only escalated when one of them posted her frustrations on social media, announcing her intention to sue his company.
This society face’s worst nightmare became reality, thanks to her own vanity. Soon after joining a beauty contest and gaining the attention of netizens for her sparkling resume, she became the target of online trolls, who dug up details of her past including the fact that she never actually graduated with a medical degree from Oxford.
On The Prowl
An overly-friendly married man saw a recent gala dinner as his hunting ground for “fresh meat”. His prey? The lanky foreign models hired for the charity fashion show, all of whom he so happily tried to chat up the entire evening. At one point, he even put his arm around one of them, but was pulled away by his fuming wife.

Out of Favour
One young socialite had been patiently waiting for her invitation to her best friend’s wedding, but it never came. She later found out that she had been intentionally left out of the guest list. Could it be a case of her friend’s new BFF not being too fond of the little missus?
Exit Stage Left
It came as no surprise to his colleagues when they heard that this scion’s father had removed him from his sales director role at the family business. Word has it that he has been putting in expense claims for late‑night revelries with friends at karaoke bars as client entertainment.
One man’s very traditional parents went into a fit when a friend showed them a picture on the Instagram feed of their son’s new girlfriend. The offending image? The young miss in nothing but sparkly nipple stickers and a hot-pink thong. Scandalous!
