BORN-RICH – There are a number of born-rich stars. In showbiz lingo Rica Peralejo (rich, moneyed), as compared to Purita Mirasol (poor, miserable).
Kris Aquino and Sharon Cuneta. One thing admirable with them, their wealth is not only inherited. They work hard for the money… and invest wisely. Heard, though, that some business partners took advantage of Sharon.
Matteo Guidicelli and Ellen Adarna, both from Cebu. Matteo’s parents own a home-decor factory, while Ellen’s father has a chain of motels and is engaged in the construction business.
