Dimples Romana’s crowning moment as a beauty queen is as gorgeous as we’d imagined.
On March 3, Parañaque Tourism Official took to Facebook to share throwback photos of the “Viral Scandal” actress winning the first-ever Binibining Parañaque title.
“Ngayong 2022 nakoronahan muli ang Barangay Sun Valley. Halos dalawampu't-dalawang taon matapos huling masungkit ni Dimples Romana ang titulo,” Parañaque’s tourism arm wrote in the caption.
When Dimples won the prestigious title, she was crowned by none other than Miss Universe 1969 Gloria Diaz.
“Sa kanyang koronasyon ay sinaksihan ito ng Pamahalaang Lungsod ng Parañaque sa pangunguna ng dating alkalde Joey at unang ginang Alma Moreno. Ang kauna-unahang pilipino na naging Miss Universe at Parañaqueña na si Gloria Diaz ang nagkorona kay Romana. Ito'y ginanap sa St. Paul College of Parañaque,” they added.
The photos were taken from the archives of the Parañaque Tourism Office.
In a 2019 report by PUSH, Dimples revealed that it was her mother who inspired her to join the pageant where a cash prize of 150,000 pesos was on the line.
“Si Mama ang gustong mag-beauty queen ako, pero pinagbigyan ko siya sa Binibining Paranaque kasi sabi ng nanay ko no’n kapag nanalo daw ako do’n, P150K ang cash, hati daw kami. So alam mong ginawa ko? Sumali ako, eh nanalo ako, so bago ko binigay yung envelope sa nanay ko, hati na, may P75 thousand ako,” she shared.
Dimples’ daughter Callie Ahmee has also expressed her own desire to be a beauty queen and potentially follow the actress’ footsteps.
“I think, in preparation she’s also getting into outreach programs, advocacies, kasi alam niya na kapag beauty queen ka tutulong ka, leg work ka, katulad nina Catriona, nina Pia,” Dimples said in the same report.
