THE PEPPER MILL - Pepper Teehankee (The Philippine Star) - June 14, 2019 - 12:00am In 1996, I visited my uncle, Ambassador Manuel Teehankee or Tito Dondi as I fondly call him, in New York. At the time, Rent was the hottest Broadway musical and my uncle was able to secure tickets for my sister and me. He asked me to choose a restaurant where we could have dinner before or after watching the musical. Lowell Yu and Kuya J Group COO Gretz Rivera. I told him to forget those expensive restaurants and we should just go to Popeyes. Tito Dondi had lived in New York for years but did not know what Popeyes was.

Sexy Talk with Finding You star Jerome Ponce It was with the Kapamilya soap Be Careful With My Heart that Jerome Ponce (as the son of Richard Yap and the brother of Janella Salvador) made a mark in public consciousness. “I was a greenhorn then and I didn’t know anything much about showbiz,” said Jerome, son of retired actor Jessie Delgado. “I was using my real surname Porciuncula and the ABS-CBN guys thought it was too long and hard to remember so they shortened it to Ponce.” “Perfect,” said Avel Bacudio, Jerome’s manager. “Bagay sa kanya.” In his latest movie (opening on Wednesday, May 29), Regal Entertainment’s Finding You, Jerome plays Nel, a social media journalist afflicted with a rare condition called hyperthymesia (the opposite of amnesia) who remembers every detail of every moment of his life. “I am like Nel in a way because I can recall, especially important moments in my life,” admitted Jerome.
