Admit or not, the ABS-CBN teleserye Kadenang Ginto is everyone's guilty pleasure. Its story revolves around power struggles between stepmother Romina Andrada-Mondragon (Beauty Gonzalez) and stepdaughter Daniela Mondragon (Dimples Romana). Romina is the second wife of Robert Mondragon (Albert Martinez), a sardines magnate and Daniela's father. To make matters complicated, Romina's ex, Carlos Bartolome (Adrian Alandy), married Daniela. As you can guess, the two ladies did not get along very well right from the start.
Cassandra "Cassie" Mondragon (Francine Diaz) is the product of Romina's rape, but she was legally adopted by Robert. Margaret "Marga" Bartolome (Andrea Brillantes) is the daughter of Carlos and Daniela. These two girls don't get along, too. But tbh, Marga is the one who isn't too happy about Cassie's existence.
In case you're puzzled by the Mondragon family members' relation to one another, here's a primer:

"Cassie, hindi ka muna papasok sa iskul!"
