Beth and Rio end up joining forces when she and the other moms become desperate for money. During Season 2, it was apparent to fans that Rio and Beth had a thing for one another even though she had a husband.

In Episode 4, the two end up hooking up; the sexual tension between them is a huge part of the show.

In Season 2, Rio even tried to make Beth jealous by seeing another woman, who, interestingly enough, is someone he’s close with in real life. Keep reading to find out who exactly plays his girlfriend on Good Girls.

Adelfa Marr appeared on 'Good Girls' opposite her husband.

In Season 2, Episode 6, Manny’s real-life wife worked alongside him on Good Girls. The life coach and mental health advocate Adelfa Marr made her television debut as Rio’s love interest Dylan.

Not too long after Beth and Rio sleep together, she and the other ladies stalk him and watch him hug and kiss Dylan goodbye. It is such a quick cameo role for Adelfa that you could actually miss her if you blinked, but what fans remember is how jealous Beth is seeing him with Dylan.

After the episode aired, Adelfa took to social media, and alongside a screenshot of her scene, she wrote, “Such a beautiful, happy, and memorable day with my amazingly talented husband. This one is definitely for the books. While I’m only on for the quickest stint, I can’t tell you how much it meant to be a part of this with @lbmannymontana. Thanks for making me the happiest girl to walk this earth @lbmannymontana, and thank you @nbcgoodgirls for having me.”

Manny Montana and his wife Adelfa Marr have been together for years.

Both Manny and Adelfa are very private people, so we don't know exactly when the couple got married. However, it's obvious from both of their Instagram accounts that they have been together for quite some time, and they have a young son. In an interview that's posted on Adelfa's site, Manny talks about his wife and their beautiful relationship. He shared, "I’m married to my best friend. She’s my rock."

He continued, "It’s so funny man, you always wish you find that ideal marriage, whatever that means to you, and you want it but in the back of your mind you think it’s far-fetched. We do everything together. She’s sacrificed so much for me, she gave me my beautiful baby, and we’re just familying it up!” We wish nothing but the best for Manny and Adelfa.

Good Girls airs new episodes Thursdays on NBC at 9 p.m. EST. The series finale will air on July 22, 2021.
