Reportedly Wong Jing's daughter Ada Wong Chi Hom caught the eyes of director Lawrence Ah Mon (Lau Kwok Cheung), who invited her to make a film that required nude performance. Wong Jing was upset after finding out and blasted online, "Last week some guy thought highly of my daughter Chi Hom and invited her to make a movie. he stated that it will require daring nudity. When the silly girl got there reporters were already there, before she even agreed she has already been in magazines for several days. As a father, I don't object to being sexy because it is a part of the physical performance. Yet this move is obviously swindling through 'Wong Jing's daughter stripping'! Kid, I have known that trick since I was 8, go further away for your con. This time my poor parenting and you fooled you, I will let it go. If you try it again I definitely will treat you to crap. Mark my word!"

Wong Chi Hom yesterday mentioned this on her Commercial Radio interview. She said that she understood that her father was intense about protecting her and she felt it was very sweet. However, she felt that her father might have been a little excessive. She understood that he might have hard feeling, but she admitted that she worried he might have scared off other directors. She said that she never agreed to make this film and she did not meet director Lau Kwok Cheung. Was she ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Jaycee Chan (Fong Cho Ming) and Ko Chen-Tung's drug case is still under investigation. The detention house declined to make an exception for Jacki Chan and Joan Lin to see their son. Although when Fong Cho Ming's mother was rumored to be present when his home was searched, actually both Joan Lin and Jackie Chan were in Hong Kong. Cho Ming who would call his mother everyday vanished. They were worried that their son was kidnapped, never imagining that actually he was in detention for drugs. Both were shocked and heartbroken. Cho Ming yesterday was able to see his lawyer for the first time, but he repeatedly asked his lawyer about his parents' health and worried that he would affect his friends.

By the most conservative estimate, Cho Ming would have to be detained for at least 30 days before he would have a chance to see his family. Thus even as a delegate of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, Jackie Chan still has not been able to see his son. He and Joan Lin could only form a legal team in Beijing for their son, hoping to be able to save him.

Last night Taiwan TVBS reported that Joan Lin did not find out about her son's arrest until Public Security informed her. However she still would not give up on her son and hoped that he would reform. The report even quoted Joan Lin's reply on the matter. She only very politely said, "Thank you for taking care of Fong Cho Ming. Thank you for taking care of my son!"

According to TVBS, yesterday a fb post from someone claiming to be Fong Cho Ming and Jackie ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Hong Kong actress Michelle Ye recently admitted that her schedule has been quite hectic, working on the fashion reality programme "Muse Dress" and on a new movie as well.


As reported on Tencent Entertainment, the actress revealed that she is currently filming a new movie with controversial actor Chapman To – the first project for the actor who has returned from his month-long overseas trip.


The actor previously angered Chinese citizens over his support for Taiwanese students' Sunflower Movement, so much so that all his recent movies have been boycotted in China, including cameo appearances.


However, according to Michelle, the actor seemed unfazed with all the hate. "He has always been very cheerful and positive."


When asked her opinion about Chapman's previous scandal, Michelle said, "Everyone uses their Weibo differently. As for me, I don't read Netizens' comments and my Weibo account is managed by my agency."


"However, Chapman likes interacting with his Weibo followers, so I'm not entitled to make comments on his ways of communicating," she added.

"Moreover, I now know how to handle my emotions and has my faith to support me," said Sammi.

Rumour has it that Chinese model-actress Viann Zhang and Hong Kong star Michelle Ye are not getting along despite working together on China's fashion reality TV show, "Muse Dress" (also known as "The Goddess's New Dress").


According to Tencent Entertainment, the two actresses, who are both romantically linked to actor Wallace Huo, reportedly have not communicated well on the show and tried their best to avoid each other.

"I am on working mode right now and it consumes a lot of my energy," said Viann, who broke up with actor Li Chen last year. "When it comes to relationship, I will let fate decide it."

"It's a competitive show and we are here to compete," she said.


Produced by Dragon TV, "Muse Dress" pairs six celebrities with six designers to compete in missions together. Other female artistes who joined the show include Alyssa Chia and K-pop idol Nana from After School.

Although the two have split, singer Elva Hsiao still backed Kai Ko up in the midst of his drug abuse case


Following his reportedly dating Elroy Cheo at the moment, left encouraging messages on Weibo and Instagram for both Kai and Jaycee Chan, who was found in possession of marijuana.

'Don't you dare give up, you understand? One mistake won't erase all the good in you. We are all waiting for your return. It may be tough but very soon, you will be safe,' she wrote.

Taiwanese singer Harlem Yu also expressed worry for his 'godson' Kai. The celebrity, who is good friends with Kai's father, posted on Weibo: 'I haven't been sleeping well for the past two days, not sure if it's the time lag or my foul mood. What is done wrong is already wrong, ignore the views of the world. Just make sure you are able to face yourself and your family in future.'

Fellow actor Eddie Peng also hopes for people to give the 23-year-old a second chance, 'He is a talented actor and a polite kid. It is a pity that this incident caused worry for his family and fans. But he has already apologised and I believe he will not disappoint if everyone gives him a second chance.'

However, Mandopop dance king Show Luo condemned Kai for his mistake: 'As a public figure, you have to be a role model. I will not contact anyone who does drugs.'

The music label of singer-actor Alan Ko also clarified on reports that initially mistook Kai for the son of Taiwanese director Blackie Ko, 'Netizens from Mainland are spreading incorrect rumours. Although it is ridiculous, just get your facts right.'
