Her distressed character in the controversial primetime series Viral Scandal seem to not have a best friend (well, aside from her beloved husband) to whom she could run to as their family is currently under fire because of the scandal involving her daughter. But in real life, actress Dimples Romana has found awesome people she considers as her best friends – and one of those is fellow actress-host Angel Locsin.
In their media interviews, the Dimples and Angel shared that their friendship started on the set of the 2008 iconic teleserye Lobo, wherein the characters they portrayed were best friends. They eventually became inseparable and turned into best friends in real life since then.
Fans caught a glimpse of Dimples’ farm when she showed off the place to the Magandang Buhay momshies in 2019. She imparted how this investment has become the perfect escape from their busy city lives as there’s no signal nor internet connection. Thus, their family gets to unwind, become one with nature, and share many late-night chats. Besides, the farm has a garden, where they can harvest fresh ingredients that they use for cooking.
She further disclosed that she has her bestie Angel to thank for this life-changing pursuit. She related, “Dinala ko siya [Angel] dito kasi siya ‘yong kasama ko sa teleserye no’ng binili ‘to.”
One piece of advice that Angel always offered to her was to be smart in handling money by putting it into valuable or profitable investment. According to Dimples, Angel told her, “Balewala ang lahat ng pagod mong ‘to kung wala ‘yang pupuntahan, Kaya ngayon pa lang mag-isip ka na ng babayaran mo.”

This was not the only instance that Angel became the best friend that anyone could ever wish for. Back in March, Dimples posted a lengthy Instagram post on how Angel unhesitatingly agreed to look after their kids when she and her husband Boyet Ahmee had their movie date night, even though she only called her the last minute.
“Nung naisip ko na isang Angel Locsin ang nagbabantay sa mga anak ko, nangiti ako at naalala ko why we’re friends in the first place. Dahil sa pagkakaibigan natin, walang artista. Tao lang,” she wrote. Angel did the same to Boyet when he was rushed to the hospital while Dimples was still on the set of Kadenang Ginto.
In the past years that they’ve been besties, Angel and Dimples have certainly witnessed most of the milestones in each other’s life, may it be in their showbiz careers or personal endeavors. Angel was a godmother of Dimples’ son Alonzo, while Dimples was one of the witnesses in the civil wedding of Angel and her now-husband Neil Arce last July.
They were able to work alongside each other in several projects, such as in the remarkable “Kotse-kotsehan” episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya and in the public affairs show Iba Yan hosted by Angel. And just recently, Angel showed her support to Dimples by joining her family’s watch party for the premiere of Viral Scandal
