    Income-wise, the cited celebs are on a different plane. Just so happens we share the same planet, though the way they live as compared to the way folks at Road 10, Tondo live is beyond comparison. They're worlds apart.

    The youngest in the top 5 highest paid celebrity in the Philippines. Siya lang ang early 20's sa top 5 iyong mga kasamahan niya nasa 40's na. Despite the fact na ang 2010 ang year na may pinakaonti siyang projects and mas onti ang endorsements compared sa 2011.
