MANILA – Dionisia Pacquiao, mother of top pound-for-pound boxer Manny Pacquiao, on Monday made a special appearance on popular noontime show “Wowowee” to the delight of the viewers.
Mommy Dionisia, as she is fondly called, revealed that it was a dream come true for her to see host Willie Revillame in person.
“[Masaya ako na] Nayakap ko na siya. Wow,” she said.

“Mga taga-Gensan (General Santos City), nayakap ko na si Ruffa,” she said.
She was also introduced to ABS-CBN chairman and chief executive officer Eugenio “Gabby” Lopez III, President Charo Santos-Concio and other executives.
Lopez said he is happy to know that Mommy Dionisia will play Sam Milby’s mother in the Estrada-Delas Alas movie.
