We have all fallen in love with the characters of Daniela Mondragon-Bartolome and Romina Andrada-Mondragon in the afternoon series Kadenang Ginto. The show has skyrocketed in the ratings game and reached staggering heights with the two leads becoming icons, who are also very visible on social media. For the July 14 episode, Gandang Gabi Vice host Vice Ganda had a chance to bond with Dimples Romana and Beauty Gonzalez to talk about the hit teleserye that we just can’t seem to get enough of.
Vice welcomed Dimples who looked stunning in her signature red apparel and Beauty sporting a refreshing embellished-top with gold hues with matching white pants. Being a fan of the show himself, Vice lauded them both for a job well done in portraying Daniela and Romina. Vice was amazed that since going viral, their characters have spawned hilarious memes from netizens. The GGV host underlined that it brings him joy when the two fight because of one man Carlos (Adrian Alandy), and wondered why he keeps saying his trademark lines, ‘Daniela, pwede ba?’ and ‘Marga, go to your room.’
Vice couldn’t help but asked the show’s main antagonist about her Ninang Juanita Galvez, portrayed by character actress Angela Kanapi, and said he was quite confused with what that character really stood for. “Gusto kong malaman, ninang mo ba talaga ‘yun? Paano siya naging close sa nanay at tatay mo?” The Unkabogable Star continued on by asking, “Mayaman ba talaga ‘yang ninang mo? Sosyal ba talaga ‘yan?” Dimples explained that her Ninang could just possibly be a pigment of Daniela’s imagination and no one knows if she’s for real. When she mentioned that Mrs Galvez is Camilla’s Head of Finance, Vice teased that it is no surprise that the company is broke, because all the old lady does is chit chat with Daniela.
The two ladies took on GGV’s Acting Challenge where they were given situations and they had to respond as their characters in Kadenang Ginto. They were asked how they would react if they were the leaders of the vendors who were being forced to evacuate their area by Manila Mayor Isko Moreno. As Romina, Beauty would talk to them in Bisaya . As the lady boss Daniela utilized her intimidating voice and shouted, Dimples would exclaim, “What’s happening here?! What the hell do you think you’re doing?!”
Vice was very curious with what Dimples had in her red suitcase, and asked her to reveal what’s inside. Dimples showed the audience that she was carrying snacks, can goods, soap, toothpaste, tabo and a cooking pot. But as she searched further, it came as a shock to everyone that the objects became bigger and weirder- from the a pale, toilet pump, oven toaster, electric fan, iron and iron stand. And last but not the least, people in the studio gasped and burst out laughing, when a guy came out of the luggage.
Dimples and Beauty reiterated once more that they do not share the same tent during Kadenang Ginto tapings in order to prep well for their parts who hate each other. However, they clarified that they mesh well in real life. To prove that the cast really gets along and that their set is a happy one, Vice presents to the audience some funny blooper clips of Kadenang Ginto.
Negi and Brenda were also asked to join on stage to do a skit playing as Daniela and Romina respectively. They were required to act out one of Romina and Daniela’s most talked about catfights, causing Negi’s wig to fall off. They were praised by the host, Dimples, Beauty and the crowd for their efforts and humorous acting chops.
Dimples and Beauty were game to prank citizens on the streets. Dimples who donned her red outfit and props, approached a man selling buko juice and demanded for some refreshments. “Kuya, alam mo ba na ako mismo ang nanguha ng mga buko na ‘yan?!” she barked referring to a meme . In a couple of moments, Beauty came in as Romina, asking for a drink as well then they both started arguing in front of the vendor. Their next stop was a gasoline station, where Daniela told the man in-charge to load some fuel to her suitcase. Romina interrupted and told the man not push through with it and said, “Hindi mo ba alam na ako ang may-ari ng gas station na ito? Makakaalis ka na because this is all mine.” The third stop was when Daniela called on a tricycle driver so she can hitch a ride. Everyone was amused to see Dimples hop on the tricycle as the driver. Romina tagged along and reiterated that the tricycle was hers, but later on hitched with her nemesis, and they headed towards their destination. When they arrived at the ABS-CBN building, it ended with another squabble in the streets, with the two stars claiming that only one person was the guest in GGV.
