They consistently make our weekday afternoon viewing habit extra scorching through the relentless, intense clashes and skirmishes of their characters Romina Mondragon and Daniela Bartolome in the well-loved and highly talked about soap opera Kadenang Ginto.
But did you know that the actresses behind this now-iconic characters – Beauty Gonzalez and Dimples Romana – are actually good friends in real life? Well if these photos we found on Instagram and collated in this gallery aren’t enough proof of their beautiful friendship, let’s recall what they said about or to one another in their guestings in Kapamilya talk shows.
In their appearance in Magandang Buhay in July 2019, we’re able to get to know more about their continuously blooming bond as they gave us a glimpse of how they are and the Kadenang Ginto set is every time the reels stop rolling.
Despite being great and professional actresses, they both admitted how they find their portrayals truly difficult because both of them admire each other so much. Thus, they revealed opting to stay in different tents with their respective Team Romina and Team Daniela in order for them not to get attached with one another. They still do discuss their every scene together, but they do it once they’re already in it.

Besides, they also disclosed being ‘motivation buddies’ as they help one another in internalizing a scene they’re about to take, especially when it’s a heavy one. That’s why Beauty has nothing but gratitude to Dimples, who she also considers as her ultimate idol when it comes to depicting best friend roles.
“Thank you talaga kasi you know what, I wouldn't be Romina right if weren't for you kasi sa totoo lang, you really need to have a bad protagonist to have a good antagonist. So thank you so much,” she said while in tears.

And their ties indeed have gone beyond work as they would randomly gift each other something that reminds them of the other, such as when Beauty gave Dimples a book on interior that she wrapped with her adorable daughter’s painting, and when the latter gave the former a shirt with an image of the cartoon character Bambi printed on it.

Meanwhile, in her Tonight With Boy Abunda guesting also in July 2019, Beauty disclosed that they’ve become friends and they usually talk about motherhood. Besides, she has found it awesome, too, how they’re able to complement one another despite the differences in their personalities as she deems of Dimples as someone full of wisdom and of herself as bursting with naughtiness.

Here’s to hoping that Beauty and Dimples are going to keep their friendship solid and strong even after Kadenang Ginto bids farewell on-air.
