Manny Pacquiao Makes It To Forbes 100 Richest Celebrities List; Mommy D Makes Waves On Naval Exercise

MANILA, Philippines - Champion pugilist Manny Pacquiao makes it to the elite Forbes 100 World's Most Powerful Celebrities list, landing at number 16 with his total earnings of $67 million from his fights against Sugar Shane Mosley, Juan Manuel Marquez, Timothy Bradley as well as his endorsements.

Manny was ahead of business tycoon Donald Trump, who earned $63.0 million, and popular Hollywood celebrities like Ryan Seacrest ($59 million), Britney Spears ($59 million) and Justin Bieber ($55 million).

Meanwhile, Manny's mom, Mommy Dionisia, was a darling at the recently concluded US and Philippine Navy exercise dubbed "Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training" (CARAT). The navy fleets of the US and the Philippine were given lessons on boat formation and retraining in search and rescue. 500 American troops participated in the exercises.

Mommy Dionisia represented Saranggani Congressman Manny Pacquiao in the commencement exercise, which was held in Mindanao.

At the event, Mommy Dionisia displayed her terpsichorean skills by dancing with some of the navy officers. She also enjoyed picture-taking sessions with them.

"Oo, ang dami sila, lahat. Kasi idol daw nila ako," she explained on the same "TV Patrol" episode that evening.

According to the report, Mommy Dionisia did not have a hard time talking to some of the US Navy personnel in English.

"If you talk in English? No? Sabi niya, 'No problem. Marunong akong mag-Tagalog."
