Ex ATV artiste, Kenneth Chan (陳啟泰) accepted an interview from ON.CC (東網) and in response to the statement made by Wong Ching (王征), he said: "The ideal outcome is to have invester or 'white warrior' to save ATV. If really none, it is not a bad situation for ATV to close down as the employees no longer need to worry about salary issue. Anyway, Hong Kong has two television companies. The closure of ATV should be considered good news to backend staff. It is similar to computer which needs to restart whenever it is shut down.

Recently, Jinny Ng (吳若希) was surrounded by endless rumours. A few days ago, Jinny wore a purple dress and revealed her 42 inches legs to attend TVB 2015 Variety Programme Parade (TVB2015綜藝節目推介記者會), together with Fred Cheng (鄭俊弘), Tony Hung (洪永城), Priscilla Wong (黃翠如) and Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍). The reporters discovered that there was something wrong with Jinny's nose, suspected she went for Botox, and her 'pizza' face disappeared as well. The reporters drew out photos of Jinny during the same event and realised her nose indeed had some differences.

Welcomed comparisons between new and old photos

Currently, Jinny was busy filming TVB programme, Street Sorcerers (街頭魔法王) and denied about plastic surgery over the telephone. She explained it was due to make-up and said: "The make-up was very thick and applied dark colour on my nose. Thus, it looked higher." Jinny took the opportunity to promote the series, Young Charioteers (衝線) and said: "You can watch the series, Young Charioteers and see if there is any differences. It will give a clearer comparison based on my side face."

Asked if she will be unhappy when pointed to undergo surgery, Jinny said: "Nope and there is always rumours of undergoing plastic surgery since I entered this line. Earlier, people said I went for plastic surgery and resembled Kay Tse (謝安琪). It is actually a small matter."

In recent months, Asia Television (ATV) has been facing a financial crisis, from delaying employees' salaries to being unable to pay their broadcast licensing fee. ATV has went through many different methods and sources to gather investments and help to avert disaster and solve their salary problem. However, the biggest crisis was when they needed to pay 17,000,000 HKD before February 18th for their broadcast license fee. The government allowed them to pay the fee in two installments. They were able to successfully pay the first installment before Chinese New Year. For the second installment, however, they only made the deadline 5 minutes before, paying off the remaining 7,000,000 HKD. It was revealed that the "white knights" were actually TVB and Fox Entertainment Group.

According to sources, earlier, TVB had bought ATV's classic dramas twice before: the first time, they bought 20,000 hours of ATV's martial arts dramas for 10 million HKD, approximately 80 dramas. Within those dramas included Nick Cheung and Donnie Yen's old ATV dramas, like "The Kung Fu Master" and "Fist of Fury", etc. The second time, TVB bought several of ATV's Cantonese movies for 1 million dollars, and established a "Cantonese Movie" channel on their paid network. 

Afterwards, TVB lent out a hand once again, along with Fox Entertainment, and bought ATV's non-ancient dramas for 70 million HKD, including "The Good Old Days", "My Date with a Vampire" series, "Showbiz Tycoon" and "Flaming Brothers", etc. a total of 500 hours of dramas! TVB and Fox Entertainment now have exclusive overseas broadcast right for ATV dramas, but share the Hong Kong broadcast rights with ATV. ATV can still air their classic dramas on their .....

24 year old Mag Lam, had been through many obstalces in the past, from losing her voice, to depression and anorexia. Today, it was exposed that she was abused three times by her first love, Ben. According to sources, Mag and her boyfriend started dated in Form 1, and have been on and off for several years. When Mag first met him, he looked like a refined, gentle boy. But who knew when he reconciled with Mag last year, he completely changed, always worrying that Mag would cheat on him; therefore checking on her all the time. At the end of last year, it was suspected that Mag was abused to the point that she was scared and decided to dump him.

More than a month ago, Ben had posted on Facebook, criticizing his girlfriend of "three crimes", saying she cheated on him three times, always emotionally out of control and never change her mistakes. However, the post did not mention her full name and only referred to the girl as "Miss Lam". He mentioned several times of his suspicions of being given the "green hat" many times. (T/N: meaning got cheated on) 

Ben felt that it was hard for girls in the entertainment industry not to be close with other men; therefore he would check on Mag everyday and secretly looked at her phone records. Anytime he saw something "suspicious", he would confront his girlfriend. The two had reconciled last year, and at the time, Mag as seeming diagnosed by depression and anorexia. Ben took leave to accompany Mag, but it is rumoured that he didn't work afterwards, using Mag as an excuse and free-loaded off her 90% mortgaged, 500 square foot flat in Shatin.
