image.jpg image.jpg     Yesterday, Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), Raymond Cho (曹永廉), Nancy Wu (胡定欣) and the others were promoting the new TVB series, Short End Of The Stick (公公出宮). When mentioned about the series will air on the day two of the Lunar New Year, Wayne Lai laughed and said that the viewers could choose to watch it or not to watch it and he will resign for a day if the ratings was less than 20 pts and needed not to chop his private part, as he acted as an eunuch in the series.

Artiste Kitty Yuen's (阮小儀) popularity has soared due to the airing of TVB new series Love as A Predatory Affair (愛情食物鏈). This issue, Hao Bao (好報) exposed that Kitty is actually an invisible rich woman within the entertainment industry: she has property, car, a foreign-breed dog, and even owns a noodle shop. Kitty plans to spend millions on property investments and is even prepared to change her car. Speaking of the characteristics of her other half, Kitty candidly admits that she likes men that are like Eddie Peng (彭于晏).

Kitty's good partner Sammy Leung (森美) heard that Kitty's series is receiving good ratings and expressed that he is happy for her. When asked about Kitty being an invisible rich woman, Sammy said: "I know. (She has money but no boyfriend.) So I told her to not earn too much money, earn less or no men would approach her." Kitty revealed that her former boyfriend was frightened away by the reporters but Sammy thinks otherwise: "If they really liked each other, nothing should stop them. Her thoughts from the era of Jackie Chan (成龍) and Paula Tsui (徐小鳳). She believes that if she is dating, no one should know so how is possible that the reporters scared her boyfriend away. (She likes types like Eddie Peng?) She did tell me before but I don't have these type of friends so I can't introduce her to my friends. Since she revealed it now, Eddie might jump out and pursue her."

Artiste Kenneth Ma was doing a recording for the programme "Strategies for Taking Care of Children", saying that his fatherly love is overflowing. Although his family has some nephews, he thinks that it is more difficult to take care of boys. On the contrary, the little girl he interacted with in this programme is very quiet. The two interacted for a morning, and he already received a self-made card from her, which he finds sweet.

Kenneth, who is partial to having a daughter in the future, was asked if he would show favouritism. He said, "My father taught me that you have to dote on your daughter because you do not know whether your daughter would marry well or not, so would definitely surrender when facing my daughter. Sons have to support their family, so must be stricter".

Regarding going to Toronto with Kate Tsui for a stage performance during the Lunar New Year, he expressed that this is this year's best gift because the pay is abundant: "I will go for five to six days. Originally thought about staying, later going to Vancouver to visit former classmates, but the timing is not right, so forget it!"

courtesy of on.cc
Director Clifton Ko Chi Sum directed ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL (GA YAU HEI SI) 24 years ago, which still felt like yesterday for him. He revealed that back then he spent HK$ 3 million to lure Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing into a "comeback". Gor Gor even graciously said that he would only pocket 2.95 million. After that he was afraid that Gor Gor would learn that Stephen Chow Sing Chi was paid HK$ 8 million. In the end on the day of the production wrap because Chow Sing Chi had his mind of having abalone, Gor Gor blasted, "The 8 million one still hasn't taken his place yet."

Cheung Kwok Wing back then announced his retirement from show business and immigrated to Canada, but he could not withstand Ko Chi Sum's convincing as he returned to make ALL'S. The film set an almost HK$ 50 million box office record. The film recently released an extended version for a share of the Year of the Monkey Lunar New Year film slot. Reportedly Gor Gor's salary was lower than Chow Sing Chi's by more than a half. "Originally it was (Raymond) Wong Pak Ming and (George) Lam Chi Cheung with Gor Gor, but Lam Chi Cheung resigned for family reason. Finally Wong Pak Ming spent 8 million for .....

Kelly Chen Wai Lam two days ago attended the film THE MONKEY KING 2 (SAI YAU GEI ji SUEN NG HUNG SAM DA BAK GWUT JING) press conference. On the way to Guangzhou she asked the driver to pull over and signed autographs on four boxes of her upcoming record release. Kelly launched her "motor hand" and spent half a hour to sign all of the 300 or 400 records. Not only did the pen run out of ink, her hand went limp and her legs were numb from standing.

Kelly explained, because some Mainland fans were unable to attend her Hong Kong autograph session, she contacted her assistants to sign autographs at a location. Kelly in order to keep from affecting the film promotion signed autographs halfway! She hoped that the record company will soon release the Mainland version of the record and hold Mainland autograph sessions.

Aaron Kwok Fu Sing two days ago attended THE MONKEY KING 2 Guangzhou premiere with Gong Li and Chen Wai Lam. Sing Sing and Gong Li both revealed that when they watched the film they succumbed to tears. Gong Li said, "Two parts were very touching for me. You can truly sense that my White Bone Spirit is a little bad." Sing Sing stated that the film's final 10 minutes made him lose his composure. "The character truly wasn't easy to play, and the process was very tough and very ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Lunar New Year film FROM VEGAS TO MACAU 3 (DOH SING FUNG WON III) two nights ago held a premiere in Wanchai. The five leads appeared. Chow Yun Fat, Andy Lau Tak Wa, Jacky Cheung Hok Yau, Nick Cheung Ka Fai, and Carina Lau Ka Ling dropped funny bombs all over. Three Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor nominees Hok Yau, Ka Fai and Wa Jai were present, when talking abou the award no one was willing to give up.

Fat Gor said that he was very happy that before the film was even released, it already had three Best Actor nominees Lau Tak Wa, Cheung Hok Yau and Cheung Ka Fai. Fat Gor jokingly asked Ka Fai to let his "older brother" win because Hok Yau has never won the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor. Hok Yau said that he actually has won in .....

Stephen Chow Sing Chi led the MERMAID (MEI YUN YU) actors Deng Chao, Show Lo (Law Chi Cheung, Piggy) and Jelly Lin Yun on their promotional tour. Sing Yeh took special care of Lin Yun and put her on a strict diet. Once Lin Yun wanted to have pork knuckle and Sing Yeh had to stop her. He explained that he was afraid the more Lin Yun ate the bigger her face would become, as hehas never seen someone with such a large face.

Piggy played from JOURNEY TO THE WEST: CONQUERING THE DEMONS (SAI YAU GONG MOR PIN)'s lonely prince to MERMAID's Octopus. His biggest wish was that next time he could play a normal person. He also revealed that in both JOURNEY and MERMAID he worked with Aunt Hengdian. When they ran into each other she sent him a text message to make her feelings known! Deng Chao and Piggy challenged Sing Yeh's classic film lines. They both performed the "10,000 Years" speech; Deng Chao cried while Piggy gave a kiss; Sing Yeh said that they both were still a little off from his and they had to try again.

Artiste Du Ping (杜平) celebrated his 80 years old birthday by holding banquet in Admiralty and invited his old friends such as Bowie Wu (胡楓), Law Lan (羅蘭), Nancy Sit (薛家燕), Ng Man Tat (吳孟達), Wu Yu (吳雨) and others. As Du Ping has already migrated to Australia, he wanted to hold his birthday banquet over there but his family felt it was better to celebrate in Hong Kong where he grows up. He will stay in Hong Kong for around 2 to 3 weeks and celebrate Lunar New Year in Australia.

Du Ping disclosed his godson, Deric Wan (溫兆倫) specially returned from Beijing to celebrate his birthday and gave him a mysterious gift: He told to open the gift on the following day." He added he will return to Hong Kong around 2 to 3 times to have gathering with old friends. When asked if he had any intention to perform again, Du Ping said: "I will be kick out given for my age and no point to hinder the earth for rotating."

As for Deric, he arrived very early and accepted an online interview from the media. However when the reporters tried to interview him after that, Deric asked which company and replied with one sentence after knowing it was ON.CC (東網): "I can only say hello to everybody!" He then rejected the interview and left immediately.

On 30 January, Natalie Tong (唐詩詠) was recording the programme, (保良金猴賀新春) in TVB City. When talked about her boyfriend, Tony Hung (洪永城) was taken photo of jogging with Sisley Choi (蔡思貝), Natalie Tong said: "Jogging is a very normal activity and I will join them next time. (Does Tony Hung explain?) Sports only. (Trust him?) In fact, it is nothing special." Natalie nodded her head when asked if she knew Tony Hung went jogging with Sisley Choi on that day.

As Lunar New Year is approaching, Natalie Tong expressed she will stay in Hong Kong with her family to celebrate together. Asking if she will go to Tony Hung to pay a new year call (拜年)? Natalie Tong said: "His family is not in Hong Kong. (Call his family to pay a new year call?) Good idea!"
