Virgina Lok's 53rd birthday party, Raymond Lam arrives late

July 1st is Virgina Lok's 53rd birthday. It turns out she had her party on June 30th because her birthday is the same day as the TVB Most Popular TV Commercial Awards. In a red low-cut dress, Virgina appeared at the party location half an hour early. When asked if Joel Chan is coming to celebrate with her? She said: "Don't play him, I didn't invite that many artists. Many of them are in Mainland, like Charmaine Sheh, Bosco Wong and Kevin Cheng can't make it."

Although there was a typhoon warning last night, the group of artists including Samantha Ko, Linda Chung, Pierre Ngo, Ruco Chan, Candy Cheung, Koni Lui, Nancy Wu, Eric Tsang, Michael Miu and his wife Jamie Chik, Raymond Lam, Tracy Ip, Kristal Tin and her husband Chapman To all attended the party. Some carried gifts with them. Tracy Ip, who broke her bones earlier, arrived in crutches with Rebecca Zhu. Fala Chen sent her boyfriend Sit Sai Hang (from Neway) out as her representative and EEG CEO Ng Yue also attended.

Virgina's favorite Raymond Lam was late to the party, but it turns out he had to work. He arrived with his cousin Lin Xiawei. A reporter asked Raymond if Virgina was accommodating his schedule, so changed the party date to today? He laughed: "Of course not, I'm busy everyday. How much could she accommodate.

Ruco Chan & Jason Chan covers up private parts to avoid the girls bumping into them

Ruco Chan, Kristal Tin, Natalie Tong, Jason Chan and the rest of the cast of TVB series No Good Either Way attended the promotional event. The cast were very into playing the game, Twister. Natalie carelessly exposes herself and almost bumped her head into Jason's private, but luckily Jason quickly covered with his hands. Natalie laughed and said luckily she didn't hit anything. Ruco feared Leanne Li would step on his private, so he quickly covered up as well, he later joked: "No because I was afraid there would be some indecent reaction, no, I mean indecent actions! After all, she is 'Ah So' (Wong Cho Lam's girlfriend). It wouldn't be good if she touched me."

Ruco is very pleased with No Good Either Way's results. Friends have praised that he can actually do comedies, be a professional or take on an evil role. Kristal was happy that even Miriam Yeung is watching their series during her postpartum confinement ("sitting the month"), and praised on Weibo that this is the best entertainment during confinement. No Good Either Way is a favorite for both young and old audiences!

Natalie's body shape was looking good, when asked if she got a cup size increase? She laughed: "A little!" She frankly expressed she got fatter on all parts of her body, and gained 10 pounds. Firstly, its necessary for the series she's shooting and secondly she's taking Chinese medications to nurse her health. When asked if she's currently dating? She said: "Nope, not related to anyone."

Yoyo laughed and said she once thought her credit card was stolen, but it turns out the 'thief' was Ekin. She said: "I told him before not to use credit cards with high credit limits for online shopping, so he went and used mines!" 

When asked when Yoyo plans to get married? She was not in a hurry and said: "Always talking about it, I'm afraid he (Ekin) might get tired of hearing it. (Where you want to have your wedding?) Nearby, the street next to us works too! (Marry before Dooms Day?) I'll be starting a new series soon, so have no time." 

Aimee Chan is also in a sweet relationship with Moses Chan, when asked if her boyfriend likes her tanned? She smiled: "I didn't ask, should be okay. (You help him put on suntan lotion?) I put it on myself."

Sharon Chan shows off nice legs in her short shorts, but exposes herself

Yesterday Sharon Chan, Wayne Lai, Kent Cheng, Kristal Ting, Natalie Tong and the Miss Hong Kong (MHK) contestants attended TVB's Amazing Summer press conference, where TVB introduces their summer programs lineup. Sharon was dressed carefully for the occasion with white short shorts and a belly button revealing top, showing off her beautiful 42 inch legs and fine waist. She stole the limelight from the group of MHK. Unfortunately, her shorts caused some cleavage for her. Her leopard panties and half buttocks were exposed, Sharon expressed she was just trying to accommodate the Amazing Summer theme, and did not deliberately try to steal the limelight from the MHK. When she learned she carelessly exposed herself, she did not mind at all and expressed: "The shorts are just too short, I didn't even know I exposed myself. No fear, I have underpants on, if I didn't, then I would be afraid. My underwear's pattern matches my shorts well, but next time I'll be more careful." 

Wayne and Kent's new series King Master will be airing during summer vacation. Kristal expressed she's honored to be able to learn from film king Kent and TV king Wayne, but Kent claimed: "I'm an out-of-date film king, Wayne is the TV King, he should be getting the award this year too." Later, Kent joked and said he wants to continue the bad terms rumor he had with Wayne earlier. Wayne said his other series with Kent, The Greatness of a Hero is currently one of the top three rated series this year, and he hopes King Master will do even better.

Bosco Wong and Linda Chung took part in The ONE promotional event for TVB new series Witness Insecurity.

Because producer Lau Kar Ho and veteran actor Paul Chun left TVB, they were absent from the promotion. Bosco and Linda were asked if they felt like 'orphans'? Bosco said: "Kar Ho Gor (the producer), helped me schedule the promotion on Weibo earlier." As for Linda, she said Kar Ho Gor may attend the next promotion. In the series, Bosco and Linda play a couple, but had no kiss scenes. Bosco said: "Really didn't have any!" 

In the series, Linda plays a rich girl with depression, she reveals: "Everyone thought I had 'princess illness'. (Do you really have it?) I believe I don't." Does Myolie Wu have princess illness? As her boyfriend, Bosco firmly said: "Of course not!" 

The promotional clips for the series got complaints from viewers? Bosco said: "Actually its just for the appeal, the actual series isn't that violent." Currently busy shooting a Mainland drama, Bosco reveals he does not know if he'll have time to attend the next promotion event.

Tiger Cubs' celebrates weekend broadcast success, Joe Ma relieved

TVB new weekend series Tiger Cubs premiered on Sunday. The first episode averaged at 29 points and peaked at 30 points, making it the highest rated series of last week. Yesterday the cast celebrated the success as well as lead actor Joe Ma's 44th birthday. Mandy Wong, JJ Jia and Kayi Cheung gave him blow kisses. Kenneth Ma later gave Joe a birthday hug. The producer then asked Vincent Wong and Him Law to embrace, making it a funny moment.

Joe is very pleased with the ratings, when asked if he felt relieved? He smiled: "Yes, yes." He believed its necessary to fumble when the series is airing at a new time slot. Initially, they thought the ratings would just be between 23-25 points, but now with such good results, the cast and crew are very excited and hopes the ratings continues to rise. As viewers complained of the terrifying scenes? Joe explained: "These are often the cases that require SDU's assistance. The future cases will continue to be bloody and violent, so that's why the series is broadcasting in the late evenings." It was said the series plagiarized the film Breaking News? He said: "Police films are inevitably linked to robberies, most important is the acting and artists giving off a fresh feeling. That is how viewers can watch happily." Joe reveals he'll be treating the entire cast and crew for a celebration later this evening and will bring his wife and son along.

The producer exposed Kenneth and JJ's kiss scene NGed several times, Kenneth laughed: "All thanks to the behind-the-scenes crew, if it wasn't the microphone having issues, then there were problems with the lighting." However, after JJ had a kiss scene with Oscar Leung the other day, she didn't want to kiss any other person anymore because she thought he was the best to kiss. JJ denied she said such thing, and said Oscar was just speaking nonsense.

Ruco Chan denies being a 'seun poon' 

Ruco Chan, Kristal Tin, Louis Yuen, Q Bobo, Lee Yee Man and the rest of the cast of TVB series No Good Either Way had Indian cuisine to celebrate the success of the series. However, the leads Ruco, Kristal and Louis weren't the ones who paid for the meal, it was in fact, Q Bobo who treated everyone. It turns out he was very happy that he was able to participate in singing the theme song, have more screen time in the series and Indians often appeared in the series. Due to this, he happily treated everyone to a night of fun. 

Ruco is very pleased that the series is getting good response. He was actually afraid people would scold that there were less funny moments, but rather more black humor in the middle of the series, but luckily no one scolded. Asked if his 'first line Siu Sang' seat is stable now? Ruco laughed: "Can I still be a Siu Sang at this age? I really don't know! (Michael Tao can?) Don't I have to be at that age, but I'm not mature enough to be a Siu Sang or first line. This is more about recognition from the public and gaining their acceptance of my acting experience." After Moses Chan, is he another 'suen poon' (best deal), even Lee Yee Man wants to get to know him? Ruco said "crazy", only his family fights over him. Currently, Lee Yee Man and Selena Li are his just colleagues.

Aimee Chan Surprises with Volleyball Skills

Yesterday, Aimee Chan, Selena Li, Ruco Chan, Raymond Wong, and Cilla Kung filmed a beach volleyball match for TVB's series "Love Exceeds the Coastline" in Tuen Mun. Aimee, who was in beachwear, was showing off her thin waist and long legs. She was actually a volleyball team representative in school who also has great ball skills...competing with other cast members. Her spike caused Cilla, who was on the opposite team, to not be able to avoid in time...screaming after getting hit in the face with the ball. Afterward, she laughingly said, "I'm okay...nose did not come off".

Cilla was revealed to have the worst ball skills, even the director revealed that, when filming a serve, it didn't even go over the net after hitting the ball 200 times. On the other hand, Selena was the most accurate. Raymond couldn't help but add, "The crew specially prepared a trampoline for Cilla to help her film the volleyball jumping action". Cilla did not mind being the laughing stock, and she also took a picture with the trampoline upon request. Selena and Aimee expressed that, when they were studying in Toronto, they were on the volleyball team...very happy to play ball together when filming.

Ada Choi & Moses Chan part of the set for a HK$120 Tourist fee to take pictures

Ada Choi and Moses Chan are currently shooting in Hengdian for TVB new series Beauty at War. As there is a fee of 100RMB (HK$120) to tour the Hengdian World Studios and see the stars, nearly 50 tourists rushed in to see the artists filming from afar. However, the tourists eventually broke past the restricted line set by the crew and went up towards Ada and Moses for pictures. When Ada was busy being interviewed by the media, she pitifully became part of the set for tourists to take pictures and couldn’t make a sound.

Ada admitted after the hot broadcast of Empresses in the Palace (後宮甄嬛傳) in Mainland, she got a pay raise. Back then she was still carrying her, at the time, unborn daughter when shooting that drama. Ada laughed that her daughter Chor Yee brings good luck and since Chor Yee's still young, she's taking her everywhere she goes because she's afraid she won't have the chance once she starts school. Ada exposed her beloved daughter is very sticky, like a koala, she laughed: "Moses said there's a great possibly my daughter's going to be a martial artist or athlete when she grows up." When speaking of Mainland artists being too expensive? Ada said: "A price like that indicates the artist is very laborious. If there's a good script, then artists won't mind if there's a pay reduction."

Mainland Endorser sues Ada

Also it was said Ada and her endorsement company went to court in Mainland. Ada's manager expressed the hearing is still in the process: "Ada is not looking for compensation, but rather justice. Earlier we found on Weibo that the advertisement was still up after the contract expired. We already sent multiple warning letters to the company, but they didn't care and even sued Ada back for breaching the contract during her pregnancy. The contract did not say there would be a penalty if she's pregnant nor did it say Ada had to give a month advanced notice when she attend events. The boss of that company basically have no evidence to backup their claims."

Kristal Tin collapses from a fortunate life

Recently Kristal Tin and her husband Chapman To have turned benevolent. When with friends, the couple just cannot leave the Buddhism topic and does not seem like they been through a high-spirited or arrogant period. In fact, this all started from the peak of Chapman's career, but then he suddenly collapses. Since then, the two had a clear picture of their needs and their religion taught them to put the past behind them.

Kristal debuted at ATV, and has never thought people would recognize her on the streets. Also, her other half made up top fast and unconsciously became disoriented. She said: "We can just randomly go to London and spend a large sum of money; We can own a car for maybe a few months and if we don't like it, we'll just get a new one. One time, within just one period, we changed cars 4 times! Although we had a lot of money and could buy a lot, but practically, we didn't feel like we had anything. So, actually in the last few years, we didn't live a happy life."

Watching her husband turn into a disheartened hero, he didn't even listen to the words that came from the woman sleeping besides him every night. At one point, Kristal thought of leaving him, but that thought didn't last long. Chapman's career collapse from its peak, Kristal just couldn't bear to give up on their love at this time. She eventually resorted to prayers and seeing Rinpoche, in hope Chapman could smoothly get through this difficult period. Unexpectedly, during this time, Kristal had some gains, she said: "Buddhism allowed me to grow spiritually, [strengthen] my wisdom and increase the religious practices. So, I went on with it and continued to learn! My husband is the same, we grew together though this period. If there wasn't this time period, then I think we would have gone crazy!"

Ruco Chan now certain of his self-worth in this industry

Since Ruco Chan’s return to TVB, he has appeared in several series and rapidly makes it to the first line as a Siu Sung. In the latest series No Good Either Way, he plays the lead actor, a laid back young man paired with Kristal Tin. This is considered his first official lead role in a light-hearted comedy series, he frankly expressed he had a pleasant collaboration with Kristal and Louis Yuen. He said: "I don't usually talk to my costars because when I first came back [to TVB], I really isolated myself and didn’t have any self-confidence. I felt there were a lot of things I didn’t know and still had to learn. This time they helped open me up and the atmosphere felt really good, very interactive and allowed me to release myself.”(TN: The premiere of No Good Either Way averaged at 30pts, and peaked at 32pts)

When speaking of the recent praises he got from others, such as director Patrick Kong, who especially named him as the most stand out TVB Siu Sang and praised his good acting skills. Ruco said: “Actually I have never collaborated with Patrick Kong before, I really thank him for the compliments though!”

Praised by producers and directors, Ruco expressed this is his happiest time since graduating from the TVB Artiste Training Class. He expressed TVB does indeed have a lot of suitable jobs for him: “There are a lot of people here that watched me grow, are very loyal and believe that I’m valuable. This makes me feel like all the work and effort in the last 10 years paid off. Last year’s work, I faced them very critically. When shooting The Other Truth and Ruse to Engagement, I was really stressed, it felt like smashing the piggy bank and taking out the money. (Used it all?) No, after working for over 10 years, I have gained more experience.”

Ruco is often paired up with actresses older than him, earlier it was Maggie Cheung and now it’s Kristal Tin. Ruco said the most important is to be able to get into character. When asked in real life, does he mind if his other half is older than him? He said: “I don’t know! I never been in that situation, but I put more emphasis on ideals/thoughts, we must be able to communicate. Especially in this industry, if my other half is immature, then it’s gonna be really hard for her to understand.”

Kenneth Ma gets scolded by Bosco's fans for getting close to Myolie Wu

Yesterday Myolie Wu and Kenneth Ma were shooting a dating scene hand-in-hand for TVB new romantic series Seasons of Love in Tseung Kwan O. Myolie disclosed her boyfriend Bosco Wong recently got her a new car. she said: "He only paid for the down payment, I'm quite pleased. Its considered the biggest gift I got from him in history. (Why not tell him to pay for all of it?) These things, I have to pay for it myself to feel happy. (Give yourself to him as a return gift?) Wah! I have to think about it first!" Regarding to the recent rumor that she's forcing Bosco into marriage? She clarified: "No such thing. What you see on the magazines, just read it and move on. (Are you afraid of the rumor damaging your image?) They usually say the female forces the male into marriage, as long as the published photos look pretty, I'm fine."

As for Kenneth Ma, he hopes Bosco's fans can spare him, "Ive been getting yelled at by his fans because they all knew that I have a CPR scene with Myolie and they didn't want me to get near her. I just did the CPR scene using the camera angles, didn't actually kiss her. Luckily in this series, Myolie takes the initiative, otherwise there would be even bigger reactions."

Also on Weibo, Myolie posted a photo of her and Kenneth while filming and wrote: "I asked Kenneth why he didn't open a Weibo account? He answered: 'Someone told me if I don't reply to fans, they would scold me.' Fans, will you scold Kenneth?"

Natalie Tong bashes 'Master of Play' being too serious

Yesterday Natalie Tong, Louis Yuen, Jason Chan, Ruco Chan and the rest of the cast of TVB new series No Good Either Way took part in the promotional event. Natalie expressed a few days ago when she was shooting for Detective Columbo, she was running a fever and barely got through the action scene, she said: "I had a scene where I was constantly screaming and fighting. I got some bruises on my arms and legs and didn't expect after a few days, I would lose my voice too! Initially I was going to just go to work anyway despite being sick, but the director heard my hoarse voice, so he told me to go home to rest." Although Natalie's sick, she still insisted on wearing 5 inch heels to play the balance beam game. However, she had a slight 'career line' cleavage during the game due to her dress sliding down. She almost exposed herself. 

Asked if she has confidence on her new series replacing House of Harmony and Vengeance? Natalie said: "I have confidence! We have 'housewife killer' Ruco Chan and fan-attracting Jason Chan in the series. Also, Master of Play is such a serious drama, [our series] No Good Either Way is very light-hearted. There's a balance!" 

Yesterday morning TVB broadcast Euro 2012: Holland vs Denmark. Before the game started, TVB host Nat Chan and nowTV host Hacken Lee had a conversation over the air and TVB generously allowed the clip to broadcast on their channel. However, aside from Hacken, no other nowTV hosts spoke. That morning, Louis was also live at the scene, he expressed yesterday at the promotion: "This never happened before! It's pretty good that both TVB and nowTV can collaborate for the first time, it's a good start. News Media should work hand-in-hand to conduct a MTV awards ceremony, that would be more representative and credible." 

For the new series, Louis sings the theme song with Ruco Chan and Q Bobo, he expressed the NG clips will be uploaded online to share with audience.

Ruco Chan suggests stripping to celebrate high ratings 

Ruco Chan, Natalie Tong, Louis Yuen, Q Bobo and the rest of the cast of TVB new series No Good Either Way gathered to enjoy the series premiere. Aside from singing the theme song, in the series Ruco, Louis and Q Bobo goes on a topless run on the streets. When asked how they'll celebrate if there are high ratings? Ruco said: "I have a topless scene in the series, and we're always stripping, just like The Full Monty, doing a reality show. Louis lost 10 pounds for the series, and is very fit, but Q Bobo will first have shave off his hair." It was rumored Ruco and Alice Chan already had a grudge back when they were still with ATV, and are still on bad-terms after joining TVB? Ruco denied: "As soon as the series came out, there are news. We are not on bad-terms at all." He expressed he and Alice collaborated before in ATV: "Earlier she wasn't in HK after she got married, so we rarely see each other or talk. In the past, we were always on the phone, and now I see her more at the company. I just laughed off the rumor." 

The other night, Natalie fell ill and lost her voice. Currently shooting new series Detective Columbo, she will have to first just shoot the lighter scenes to avoid affecting her recovery. She is actively looking for a treatment: "I've been sick for several weeks and not recovering. This time, my role is always crying, screaming and getting beat. It is the most difficult role that I've done so far. I don't want to hold everyone up. I plan to ask Tavia Yeung for advice on how to treat voice lost." She frankly expressed she has been too into character and is feeling down. "I feel really down after reading the script and just feel unhappy. When I'm at work, I can't speak and have a black face. My family is frightened." 

It was exposed that when Natalie was shooting her mad crying scenes, she had the same 'long snot' coming out as Stephen Chow in King of Comedy ('Long Snot' Photo Here). Natalie said awkwardly: "So ugly! No one told me about the snot. If I knew earlier, I would definitely ask to shoot the scene again. I'm afraid when the series airs, people will just pay attention to the snot and think it's a comedy."
