“The Ultimate Addiction” Cast Did Not Celebrate for Finale
Monday July 21, 2014 Hong Kong
The finale of The Ultimate Addiction received moderate ratings at 24 points last week. The 30-episode series garnered mediocre reviews and unimpressive viewership ratings in Hong Kong during its run. Despite the results, Bosco Wong expressed that he is still satisfied with the series. Bosco, Sharon Chan, and Michael Tse attended a function to promote for an upcoming friendship concert that will take place in Manila, Philippines on August 16. When asked why the cast of The Ultimate Addiction did not gather to watch the finale together, Bosco explained it had nothing to do with the series’ ratings; several artistes were not in Hong Kong at the time. Kate Tsui and Nancy Wu are both abroad, and even Bosco just returned home a few days ago.
Regarding the series’ mediocre ratings, Bosco tried his best in his performance and viewers’ reception is beyond his control. Although Hong Kong viewership ratings were quite low, Bosco pointed out that the series attracted an impressive number of online viewers from Mainland China.
Sharon Chan to Postpone Wedding?
Earlier tabloids claimed Sharon Chan plans to marry her boyfriend, William Lui, this coming October. However, her upcoming work schedule may signal otherwise. Sharon needs to film a drama for the rest of the year, and will not have time for a wedding until early 2015. In addition, Sharon revealed she recently signed a two-year contract with a music company. When asked if she is afraid it will affect her marriage plans, Sharon replied, “It won’t matter, because these things can occur at the same time.”

Model, Jacquelin Chong, released a new book, self-exposing her six relationships. Yesterday, she appeared at the book fair, and admitted that ex-boyfriend, Deep Ng, is one of the "leads" of the book, and even described him as her first "boy"friend. Because of his words, "I don't want you to not even try", they entered a relationship. Other than talking about her friends' sexual tendencies, she also exposed that someone in the entertainment industry once used sex to get jobs, just like "legal rape".
Jacquelin Chong appeared at the book fair yesterday to promote her new book "大情大性講情講性" (Openly Talking about Love and Sex). Although she was dressed a bit conservatively, but she laughed saying she was scared it would affect other's appetite, and also exposed her new book's secrets - exposing her past six relationships, including her relationship with Deep Ng, friends' sexual experiences and the dark secrets of the entertainment industry! She was very daring to expose secrets related to others; after a lot of thinking, she believed that there is nothing to hide, and decided to expose her own love history. She revealed that she wrote about how she and ex-boyfriend Deep Ng got along: "I wrote about six past love relationships, Deep Ng is included. Although I didn't use any names, but once you read the section, you can tell it's him. (Gift a book to him?) Good idea, but I'm scared he won't dare read it, because I didn't notify him beforehand."
Not scared Sherman Chung will be mad
In other words, this means that Deep Ng unknowingly became one of the "leads" in her book. Jacquelin, who has never had anything to be scared of, expressed that she is not scared that Deep's current ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Aimee Chan: “Acting is My Love”
Monday July 21, 2014 Hong Kong
Taking a break from caring for her son, Aimee Chan attended a function for a health foods research company the other day. Since giving birth in December, the 33-year-old TVB actress has been taking a hiatus from her acting career to care for her seven month-old son, Aiden Joshua Chan.
Aimee shared that Aiden has begun eating solid food. She is very cautious when it comes to feeding him. “It’s going into his stomach after all, and it’s his first time eating actual food. Kids do not digest food as well as adults, so I have to be extra careful. I’m also afraid that he might be allergic to some foods, and he won’t be able to communicate that to us, so we have to take things step by step.” Before feeding Aiden, Aimee would always try the food herself first. Asked if Aimee has had any “failed” food tests, she said, “Yes! Aiden hates avocados! I really like avocados myself. I would eat one every day, but he doesn’t seem to like it.” Fortunately, Aiden does not have any known food allergies yet.
Will Aimee let other people feed Aiden? “I think it’s good to that,” she said. “It’s beneficial for babies as young as Aiden to meet more people so he can learn to not be afraid of strangers and not be too shy. It’s good for his development.” On the topic about eating healthful foods, Aimee said it is critical for everyone to be very meticulous about what they eat to prevent toxins from entering the body. “If our bodies just keep accumulating toxins, we’re going to eventually get poisoned to death! Just as kids, adults should also be very careful.”

Emotions ran high at S.H.E's encore concert last Saturday, as the trio recalled their 13-year journey
S.H.E has been in the music scene for almost 13 years, since they released their first album on September 11, 2001. With the anniversary drawing near, all three members got extremely emotional at the 2GETHER 4EVER CONCERT in Kaohsiung last Saturday.
Hebe Tien revealed her feelings by saying ' feel like crying' while Ella Chen added: ' never thought that it would take so many years for us to be able to hold a concert in Kaohsiung.' Selina ended off by saying, 'My youth is S.H.E.'
While they were belting their hearts out on stage, Selina Jen expressed her hopes that the songs would bring up the fans' memories of S.H.E: 'Maybe you will remember who once attended a fan sign with you; who you went to a concert with?'
Ella took a trip down memory lane as well, as she performed Rene Lai's 'Hou Lai' during her solo stage. This was the very song that she had sung in the finals for the 'Universal Talent and Beauty Girl Contest' in 2000. Although she was eventually eliminated, that competition gave rise to the S.H.E of today.
She choked up as she sang the song, saying, ' feel like crying a little because I'm moved; there are many emotions coming to me. This is a song that is very important to me; it paved the way to my journey.'
As for Hebe, the chic singer maintained her usual performance style, leaving the stage immediately after her solo song without interacting with the fans.
Afterwards, Selina took off a part of her skirt on stage, transforming her outfit into a tight mini dress within one second. She laughingly said, 'Now that [the condition of] my body is getting better and ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Aimee Chan claimed that she will bring her three cats home once she stops breastfeeding
Hong Kong actress Aimee Chan was recently chided by angry netizens after she revealed that that she gave away her three cats ' that she had been raising for six years ' to a friend after her pregnancy.
Although Aimee, 33, expressed that her actions stemmed out of worry that her child would contract asthma after inhaling cat fur, she was slammed for being irresponsible and disrespectful towards life; a renowned veterinarian even called her selfish and ignorant.
Yesterday, the actress tried to clarify matters while attending an event. She claimed that in reality, the reason why she gave her cats away to her friend was not because of her son, but her allergy to cats.
She had been taking anti-histamines for the past six years just so she could continue raising her pet felines, but that's no longer possible: 'Because I'm breastfeeding now, I can't eat medicine. If I eat medicine, they will enter my breast milk and affect the baby when he drinks my milk.'
Aimee confidently added that once the baby stops breastfeeding, she will immediately bring the cats back home, as she feels that keeping a pet and maintaining a marriage is one and the same ' a lifelong responsibility. She also emphasised that she never once thought of abandoning her cats.

S.H.E member Selina will not undergo surgery to remove scars from her burn injuries as it is 'too painful'
After an accidental explosion on-set while filming for musical drama I Have a Date with Spring in 2010, the 32-year-old was left with burn scars on most parts of her body.
Although she has recovered well, her scars and taut skin around her knees and ankles has restricted her movements, especially when she does vigorous activities like dancing. During her solo performance at S.H.E's encore concert in Kaohsiung last Saturday, she substituted her usual energetic and sexy dance moves with simple and graceful hand movements and dance poses.
'I am unable to stand up and squat down quickly. Sexy half squats are definitely out of the question. My original moves in Miss Universe required me to bend down, but I realised my left ankle could not take it,' said the singer, who is married for three years.
Selina paid a visit to a plastic surgeon to remove the scars on her chin through laser treatment in February, but the process was too painful, she confessed she would never to do it again.
At the celebration party after the concert, the cheerful lady explained that she will not remove her scars via surgery. 'I will not consider surgery, although the doctor said if I feel inconvenienced, I can undergo surgery to loosen the skin. I don't feel the need and am satisfied with my ability to dance now.'
After completing a 10-km marathon last month, Selina revealed her ambition to take part in a triathlon, but is fearful the distance will take a toll on her. The cheeky one wistfully hoped for the distance to be reduced by half and said, 'Life is wonderful when one has dreams'.

Sina Entertainment Interview – Francis Ng loves to madly kiss his son Feynman while he sleeps
Article originally published 7/8/2014
Anthony Wong (黃秋生) once assessed his good friend Francis Ng (吳鎮宇) in this manner: “He is truly ‘Wong Yeuk Si (黃藥師)’ [the character from Jin Yong’s novel Legend of the Condor Heroes] – every move he makes is strange , odd, mysterious…you never know what his next move will be!”
Recently, Francis Ng demonstrated one of those ‘strange’ moves! Personality-wise, Francis is known for being proudly aloof and socially awkward, dislikes conforming to society’s norms, and absolutely loathes constant public exposure– yet ironically, he chooses to participate in a wildly popular TV program that publicly ‘exposes’ him to millions of television viewers every week: the second season of Mainland China’s highly rated reality show Where Are We Going, Dad? (爸爸去哪儿). Not only that…even more ‘strange’ is the fact that Francis -- who has always been extremely low key when it comes to his family and tries to fiercely protect his son Feynman Ng from the prying eyes of the Media as much as possible -- decided to take everyone by surprise and put his son into the spotlight as well by participating in the program with him.
In preparation for this interview, our reporter had diligently reviewed many of Francis’ past interviews with various media outlets, hoping to understand what to expect when Francis walks in the door. Of course, the result is unexpected: Francis saunters carefreely into the room, carrying a small bag on his back, holding a water cup, wearing framed glasses that complemented his casual, playful look. According to the Where Are We Going, Dad 2 production crew, that’s how Francis is like in real life – basically, he’s a big kid at heart.
Given his personality, many people were interested in knowing ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Chrissie Chau: Bath is good after breakup!
Sunday July 20, 2014 Hong Kong
Like her character in new romantic comedy, "Break Up 100", Chrissie Chau believes that a good bath is necessary after a breakup, according to Mingpao News.
The actress was referring to one of the scenes in the new Lawrence Cheng movie, where her character takes constant bath and special body care as she doesn't want to feel dry after her breakup.
The actress, who appeared at an award presentation recently, said, "I take baths every day, but I do feel that bathing after a breakup is a symbolic gesture of starting anew."
"Bathing could be a complete cleansing ritual to move on to something better," she added.
Speaking about her own single status, Chrissie said that she has yet to find the right man, especially with her current hectic promotional schedule.
"I may look for a boyfriend again after the promotion. Just like the movie, I think I need to look forward to it after my 100th breakup," she joked.
