It was all “AlDub” in 2015. The rise of Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards can only be described as “phenomenal” as their love team broke every conceivable record – from TV ratings to Twitter and the box office of the Metro Manila Film Festival where their movie “My Bebe Love” emerged on top.
And as stars shine, some of them fade away although they will always be remembered: Julia Buencamino; Liezl Sumilang-Martinez, 54; Elizabeth Ramsey, 83; and YouTube sensation Jam Sebastian, 22.
