Bela Padilla celebrated her recent Best Actress win at a dinner that was hosted by Angel Locsin. This is the first time that the two have been seen together after Angel was reported to be exclusively dating Bela's former boyfriend, entrepreneur Neil Arce.
On Instagram, Bela shared a series of photos and videos of her receiving her Best Actress trophy for the film 100 Tula Para Kay Stella from the Guild of Educators, Mentors, and Students (GEMS) at the De La Salle Zobel School in Alabang. Apart from thanking those who helped her in the film, Bela gave a special shout-out to Angel for hosting their dinner, which was also attended by Chery Pie Picache and Dimples Romana.
"Last night was such a great start for the month of March. Thank you, GEMS for the recognition for my work in 100 Tula Para Kay Stella.

The two have long claimed that they've been in good terms with one another. A few months after Bela and Neil's four-year relationship ended, Angel was reported to have been going on dates with the former, which Bela was okay with from the start.
Angel was also awarded Best Single Performance by an Actress on TV for Maalala Mo Kaya. On Instagram, she shared images of their dinner with a caption, "after #GEMSawards2018 with these talented ladies."
