Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza rock!

Well you know what? Crucify me here in GRP but I gotta admit to the appeal of the budding romance between Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza, the latter a.k.a. ‘Yaya Dub’. I’m sure a lot of marketing folk will spend their entire careers studying just how the “AlDub” pair turned into a media bonanza for […]

Say goodbye to #hugot forevah!
