Dimples Romana talks about one of the most important times in her career.
With her new teleserye The Greatest Love premiering on September 5 on ABS-CBN, Dimples Romana admitted she was happy to work with Sylvia Sanchez who plays the role of her mom who is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. "Pag nag-uusap nga kami ni ate Sylvia off-cam ang dami-dami kong natututunan sa kanya. Gustong gusto ko siyang kausap dahil budding family pa lang yung sa akin at nakikita ko yung mga anak niya napakaganda ng pagpapalaki nila. Alam naman natin na ang pagiging ina ay hindi natatapos sa 24 hours, seven days, 365 days of the year. Bawat minuto na nabubuhay ang isang ina na nagluwal ng anak, hindi natatapos yun eh. So palagay ko walang kaibahan yung trabaho namin artista sa mga OFW na mga ina kasi ramdam namin yung hirap na malayo ka sa mga anak mo, hindi mo mahawakan, pero at the same time alam mo na yung mga sakripisyo mo will pay off one day,” she told Push.com.ph.
Having been married to her non-showbiz husband Boyet for 13 years, Dimples shared her secret to a successful marriage which has also blessed them with two kids, Callie and Alonzo. "Palagay ko dasal kasi yun ang lagi kong kasama eh. Feeling ko nga BFF na kami ni Lord. Kasi as you know when I got married and I was pregnant very early on and I could not become who I am today not because I wanted to prove everybody wrong and I also made sure my mom was proud of me at the end of the day. I think karapatan ng tao lahat tayo sa karera natin or kung saan man sa pamilya natin, every time that we do something we always have to remind ourselves kung ano ang mararamdaman ng magulang natin sa lahat ng ginagawa natin. So sumakit talaga ang ulo ng nanay ko sa akin (laughs),” she recalled.
Deciding to start a family early in her career, Dimples said she will always be very grateful for her Star Magic family supporting her decision all the way. Dimples said she is blessed to always have a steady stream of hosting gigs and shows. "Dasal dasal lang. Masuwerte lang ako kasi hindi ako iniwan ng Star Magic and my ABS-CBN family dahil tuloy tuloy ang trabaho ko kahit nabuntis ako nun, kahit nabuntis ako ulit. Tuloy tuloy lang yung work so always prayers lang,” she added.
