Kadenang Ginto has been filling our afternoons with all sorts of drama. You have the seemingly never-ending power struggle between Romina (Beauty Gonzales) and Daniela (Dimples Romana). There are secrets piling on top of each other. Even Kulas (Ronnie Lazaro) and his sons have thrown their own family conflicts into the mix. Out of all these, however, it is the rivalry between Cassie (Francine Diaz) and Marga (Andrea Brillantes) that has become a main attraction for viewers.
In a way, the two of them are an extension of their mothers’ on-going feud. They are constantly in competition with each other. As if Marga was not enough of a queen bee, her actions are also re-enforced by Daniela’s insistence of besting Cassie in Maxwell’s rankings. Kapamilyas can surely agree that Francine and Andrea are leading ladies in the making. But what are they like in real life?
According to Beauty, the young actresses are practically opposites. Francine is the quiet one. When she is not busy trying to survive in the same home as her evil step-sister and niece, you can find her lost in a book. On the other hand, Andrea is the louder one. If you ever wonder why she always has so much energy, it is because of all the food she eats. Beauty also added, “ang cute, cute niyang kumain.” And a bonus fact: Andrea does not seem to gain any weight despite chowing down to her heart’s content. “Sana kagaya ko siya, hindi tumataba,” Beauty wished. Don’t we all?
At the end of the day, however, one thing fans might not realize is that Francine and Andrea have become true friends behind the scenes. “Kung anong napapanuod nila sa TV, kakaiba din sa totoo. As in they’re very close,” Beauty ended.
