‘Yan ang pinakamayayamang babae sa Pilipinas. Nagtataka lang ako kina Annabelle Rama. Akala ko ba, mayaman siya? At ang Nora Aunor, ang kayamanan niya, napunta sa casino sa Las Vegas… ‘yun na!
PITIK-BULAG: Sino itong aktor na sumikat noon na tuluyang nawalan na talaga ng career, simula nu’ng napabalitang pumapatol talaga siya sa mga beki?
Ay, ‘teh… nagulantang ako na ngayon ay siya na raw ang beki! Kaloka naman… dahil nakita nga ng isang kaparazzi natin sa party itong bagets na ito na talagang finding nemo ang peg!
Nakakaloka, dapat princess na ang itawag sa kanya. Hahaha! Siya na!
