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."

After learning Lives of Omission made it on the nominations, Michael said: "I haven't got the notice yet, never thought we'll be in the nominations, very shocked and surprised. Of course I'm happy, and plan to go have Korean food to celebrate. The nomination proves that HK series are attractive and language isn't an issue. The most important is the quality."

TV Queen Myolie Wu scored 'double' with Curse of the Royal Harem and Ghetto Justice and following Charmaine Sheh, she may even snag the Most Popular HK Actress Award too. She said: "With two series, the chances are higher and I hope to get the award too. However, I don't dare to put my hopes up too high because I'm afraid I'll be disappointed. I hope to visit Seoul too, haven't been to Korea in a long time and want to see the Korean fans. In the next few days, I'll be heading over to Beijing to attend the Hua Ding awards, competing for the Best Actress award. I have okay confidence, my opponents are strong!"

Joel Chan implies Virgina Lok loves to sell herself not her 'products'

After Joel Chan started dating Florinda Ho, he's often showing off their sweet moments on Weibo. However, when Joel learned that Virgina Lok said he's not interested in shooting series anymore, yesterday he refuted on Weibo: "Just what is the primarily duty of an Executive, is it to sell themselves....or sell their products?" His girlfriend, Florinda, also supported Joel by replying to him: "Depends on the industry and personal interest, each have their own ambitions."

Yesterday Virgina Lok attended an event in Tsim Sha Tsui, and after reporters showed her the comment Joel left on Weibo, she was asked if the executive Joel referred to was her? She said: "I don't understand what the meaning of his comment is. (What jobs does Joel have now?) He took vacation. When he told us, he said he temporarily won't be accepting jobs, apparently he wants to start a business. Actually there are people offering him jobs, but he told his manager he doesn't want to accept any yet. However, it's fine that he's taking vacation because he does not owe TVB any shows."

Virgina stressed its not a problem that Joel takes vacation because he does not owe TVB any shows, but up until today it has already been 6 months since he's done anything. She also wanted to call Joel to ask what's happening. She said: "I've asked Derek Kwok (Joel's good friend) for his opinion, and I do want to invite Joel out to discuss too. If he wants to terminate the contract, we can sit down and talk about it."

[Oriental Daily] asked Joel if the executive he referred to on Weibo, Virgina Lok, he responded yesterday: "why would that be? I understand her and I'm tolerant for her concern and care. (What do you understand about her?) I understand she cares about me. As a junior, I am tolerant and appreciate her care over the last many years." Florinda also responded supporting her boyfriend: "I believe he's a person that knows his blessings."

Denise Ho refuses to respond or send blessings to 'Joey-Wilfred'

Joey Yung, Wilfred Lau and Denise Ho's love triangle unfolded continuous confusion. The three of them initially had many years of friendship, but since the 'Joey-Wilfred Romance' broke out, the relationship turned into a drama. Denise described her feelings as a "knife cut through her heart", and cut off her friendship with Wilfred. Regarded as the 'victim' in the whole issue, Denise finally makes a public appearance after 12 days of immerse, but refused to respond to the 'Joey-Wilfred Romance'.

Last night, Denise attended TABOO's Naughty and Naughtier Show in Macau. At 7:50pm, Denise was at the HK Macau Ferry Terminal prepared to take the 8pm ferry to Macau. Reporters surrounded her asking questions as she walked into the terminal. Asked how she's feeling now? Denise forced a smile: "I'll answer you when I get there (Macau). (What do you think of Joey and Wilfred dating?) I'll answer you in private, when I get there I'll answer you. (Are they still your friends?) Huh! Did you have dinner yet?" When asked if she'll send her blessings to Joey and Wilfred? She first did another "huh", and then smiled: "Aiya! Thanks for all your hard work. (Emotions haven't recovered?) I'm happy to see you all." When walking up the escalator, Denise saw reporters rushing over to her and didn't forget to caution them: "Careful." Then she waved goodbye to the media and got on the ferry.

When Denise got to Macau, she changed into an orange outfit, and clearly looked unhappy. She forced a smile during the pictures. When asked how she found out about Joey and Wilfred's relationship? She said: "Let me put it this way, over the last many years, I have always been low-key towards gossips, rumors or even others' relationships. I have never publicly explained anything. I know it's difficult for all of you, but I hope you all can understand me. I don't want to always respond and make everyone speculate even more, twist it more and then the issue never ends." She expressed her messages on Weibo were just her thoughts of that day, and she never thought of talking about it in public. She said: "It is very personal, I never thought the whole issue would develop into this."

Not only did Denise not send her blessings to 'Joey-Wilfred', she didn't even want to be friends anymore. When asked again if Joey and Wilfred are still her friends? She avoided the question: "At this moment, I have already gave answered everything I could. I hope you all can adopt to my silence. I know you all have many questions to ask me, but I just cannot answer you." Then, no matter how much reporters tried to ask, she repeated that she did not want to respond any further and did not want to stir up any more speculations. Finally, when asked if she found herself a new love interest? She said: "I cannot respond that much."

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.

Joel Chan attends event with girlfriend in matching rings, rumor marriage is near

Yesterday Joel Chan and his girlfriend Florinda Ho ('Gambling King' Stanley Ho's daughter) attended an event together as a couple. It was rumored that the couple are planning to get married. At 5pm, when the couple appeared at the LANDMARK MEN's summer party event, they were seen wearing matching golden Gucci rings. It was understood, Joel got the rings as a gift, he even got the rings prepared, looks like their 'good occasion' is really coming close!

When Joel was asked about the news regarding to his contract termination with TVB? He said: "I cannot reveal anything. TVB and I have a good relationship. (Earlier it was said you were frozen by TVB?) Actually since I started dating, there had been a lot of news and speculations. I'm already used to it and have consensus (with Florinda), we face everything positively. (Will you still be shooting series?) It is not convenient for me to say. (What are your work plans?) I have a stable and fix job, just doing what I like to do."

Florinda took initiative to clarify the rumors that her Gambling King father invested in helping them open a fashion design company. She said it is not true. Joel stressed they are financially independent: "After all, I currently have a job and income. I am living happily, enjoying work and enjoying my love life." When speaking of Joey Yung and Wilfred Lau's relationship, it was said the woman is superior to the man? Florinda said: "Actually a couple dating happily is enough. It is not necessary to care about what others think. There has to be some joy in life, so I support pursuing doing things that one enjoys. (It was said you're spending all on the man, are you unhappy?) No, basically whoever I'm with, unless he is wealthy, this question will arise."

Reporters later called Florinda again to ask about the 'good occasion' (marriage) coming near, she laughed loudly: "Don't be so sensitive. We are still young people. We're dating, so we try to match our accessories, that's it. (Engaged yet?) Not the right time yet."

Joel actually still has three years left in his contract with TVB, Virgina Lok admitted yesterday over the phone and expressed it's not a problem "He's still on break indefinitely."

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.

Yumiko Cheng debuted as a dance-singer, but has recently switched to acting in Mainland dramas. She has also become great friends with many of the artists there. Last week she and her makeup artist boyfriend (Andy) flew to Bangkok, Thailand to celebrate good friend Cherrie Ying's birthday. On June 19th after she had breakfast with her friends, she took pictures on the balcony by the swimming pool at the hotel.

The birthday girl luckily only suffered from minor injuries, but Yumiko fell 30 feet down, from the 3rd floor down to the 1st floor. A tree branch pierced through her back and through her lung region. Her condition was critical as she fell unconscious on the spot. Yumiko was immediately rushed to the hospital for rescue.

After the emergency surgery, Yumiko was in a coma for two days and finally woke up on June 21st. The doctor expressed she has already got through the crisis. The branch went through her lungs and 5th cervical vetebrae, therefore Yumiko feels pain when she breathes and cannot move like normal. She will need to put on a neck brace, be on bed rest and do some physical therapy.

"File of Justice" 20 years later Bobby-Au Yueng, Michael Tao & Felix Lok meets again

Michael Tao, Bobby Au-Yeung and Felix Lok (Ah Gung) became good friends after being in five seasons of Files of Justice. The three of them sit down together again after 20 years to chat about the past.

Michael: I thought of a good image for us, the three of us come together and give off a different feel.

Bobby: You act with bow ties, but I can't find my previous hairstyle anymore! My head is getting rounder and rounder each year, later I'll have to sleep upside down, so the skin on my face won't loosen...haha!

Ah Gung: Files of Justice is already 20 years ago! We're sitting here together again, that is truly hard to come, very memorable! In the past when shooting series, mostly it's last minute scripts, but now that I'm with CTI, the company has a regulation of no last minute scripts!

Kisses Flora Chan nonstop

Bobby: In fact audience like to watch us three brothers at-home scenes, but I actually like Michael's kiss scenes more! His kiss scenes with Flora Chan and Jessica Hsuan, wah.. I was still there watching during the midnight snack!

Michael: I didn't ask for it, but often times my co-stars treats me well. That time it was Flora's first on-screen kiss too!

Ah Gung: They all have a western girl personality, takes initiative. That scene you had with Flora was awesome!

Michael: How do you know its awesome? Only I know it's awesome...haha!

Bobby: When it comes to kiss scenes, that time when I encountered Esther Kwan, I really learned something! I'm pretty shy when doing kiss scenes, but that day when Esther and I had that scene, she was talking while we were filming the kiss... she told me not to overlap my face with hers. Behind the scenes, I was even complaining she didn't put enough effort, but she said talking in between the kiss will be more realistic. Indeed, the outcome was pretty good! Don't believe me, Michael you try it!

Michael: No this point in life, I'm afraid to kiss girls on camera. A light kiss in the morning, I can still do, but those passionate kiss scenes, wah..too much!

Bobby: I had a passionate kiss scene with Ada Choi before, very frightening...if I had a curvy chin like Michael, then the kiss would look good, but I got a flat chin and face, once we bump into another, nothing can be seen anymore, the eyes, ears, mouth, nose, none of it. So I thought of an idea to tell Ada: "When we shoot, I'll kiss your face or if not, I'll kiss your forehead and that's it!" She unexpectedly answered me: "Aiya... I think so too!" Dang...

Ah Gung fitter than Him Law

Michael: Ah Gung shooting those police scenes is pretty difficult too. Shooting the investigation scenes, got to run all over Hong Kong, but Ah Gung really lives life by the rules. Back then when I went to his house, I saw he had his own private gym in there. He has such a fit body figure now, even better than Him Law's!

Ah Gung: Back then I can shoot 11 or 12 days of investigation scenes, I was young then, but now I still keep up with my physical activity and can still look pretty good on screen!

Michael: Actually we were quite picky on the looks, back then while shooting Files of Justice we had to change into a new outfit for every scene, all of my bow ties were from my own personal wardrobe.

Pants falls off in public, Filipino bystanders shout: "Small!"

Bobby: You (Michael) even wanted all white silk pajamas, like a White Dragon King! There was one time, we were filming outdoors...that day it was Sunday, at the public square in Queens. Me and you were carrying our costumes, initially we were going to change in the tuxedo store, but wanted a faster way, so we just decided to change near the TVB van. Unexpectedly when you unbutton your pants, you forgot your wallet in the back pocket, and resulted in your pants falling off. The pants fell right down to your feet, and the large group of Filipino workers saw the scene and shouted: "oh! Michael...small!" Your eyes grew big! I can just say: "Next time change your pants more diligently!" Hahah....

Michael: So, you were wearing shades in the mall and couldn't see where you were going. You held on the rails as you walked, but still tripped and PK! Haha!

Bobby: You dare to mention that again, that time if it wasn't because you were laughing too loudly, the people in the entire mall wouldn't have known it was me! Everyone looked at me, I was so embarrassed!

Back then, they were three young men, but they didn't compete or back stab each other, instead they were good brothers. Even after work, they got together for coffee and rehearsed the scripts.

Bobby: Although we were very playful, we had great teamwork. Every time we finished shooting a scene, we would go to the nearby coffee shop to discuss the scene. Each one of us had a great attitude, very fit! I asked producer (Gary Tang) why did he cast us 'second line' actors in this series, he said the first line actors may have all the screen time to themselves in one episode, but with all the second line actors, there could be healthy competition!

Ah Gung: I discovered another phenomenon, not just the producer made good results out of us, we never quarrel or compete for screen time, we had a good relationship. And this relationship lasted for all five seasons, didn't change. That is truly rare. In other series, everyone seeing each other for such long periods, many would start arguing!

Bobby: That's why I really look forward to having Files of Justice continue on, do another gathering....

Michael: We're good old time buddies, stepped into another stage in life, up until today, we sit down together again, I believe the producers will have to think of a new refreshing idea to match us!

Denise Ho tears up instantly after learning the 'Joey-Wilfred' relationship

Looks like C-Hing's impulsive move of making the relationship public has caused troubles this time!

It was understood, Netizens called C-Hing a 'scum' for lying that he already told Denise personally about his relationship with Joey, when in fact he was feeling ashamed and never mentioned anything to Denise, but instead pushed it to Joey.

Then the semi-drunken Joey came up to her and broke the news to her. C-Hing just followed Joey out and didn't say anything.

Once Denise heard the news, she was heartbroken and teared up on the spot. She felt C-Hing was irresponsible and didn't know how to love Joey since he pushed her out to break the news to her instead of doing it himself. Also, Denise felt they were playing with her, as they specially decided to tell her on Joey's birthday. To comfort her good friend, Joey took her to the side and had a quiet chat with her, whereas C-Hing just continued partying with the others. After Joey talked to Denise, she acted as nothing happened and stayed at the party until 5am. Heartbroken Denise couldn't sleep all night and wrote on Weibo at 9am the next morning, "No More", seems like she drew the line with C-Hing and quickly bought a ticket to leave Hong Kong.

Kick out of Instagram

In the last few days, Denise and Joey have not openly responded to the situation. Feeling betrayed, Denise, currently in Mainland, left a message on Weibo yesterday: "It's a big world, we are so minute, there is nothing worthy of saying anymore, life just goes on. We should just concentrate on more important things. Thank you all for the love. I will take this love and share it, good night everyone." Although Denise didn't unfollow Joey on Weibo, but on another social media site Instragram, she kicked both Joey and C-Hing out of her list of following.

(When did you start liking Joey?) This year, that's how fate is." When asked if Wilfred feels uneasy about Joey in a higher position (in showbiz) than him?

The mainland bullies us Taiwanese, Japan must stand up for us."

The post sparked an outcry as Chinese netizens voiced their dissatisfaction on various social networking sites.

Upon learning this incident, Vivian asked angrily,"Who are you and what are your motives? You impersonated me and posted ridiculous things; I believe Sina (Chinese online media company) will see that justice is served!"

In a statement, her management company said, "This impersonation incident has led to a lot of discomfort for Vivian, thus the company has decided to close our micro-blog indefinitely. We also have requested that the offensive content be deleted. For now, interactions with fans will be done on the official site."

Yesterday new series Cousin, You Are Good costume fitting was held at TVB City. Joey Meng joins TVB as the lead actress of this series; This is the first TV series for Ivana Wong, Louis Cheung and Bob Lam; Wong Kwong Leung makes his comeback as Wong Cho Lam's father; Roger Kwok and Wong Cho Lam are the lead actors. Joey describes the atmosphere at TVB feeling like an elite school, so big and pretty. She often gets lost around the company, but she doesn't dare to trouble her partner Roger. She said: "Roger and I both have families, so to avoid any unnecessary gossips, I just ask Law Lan Jeh for help whenever I get lost." The two leads mutually impressed each other. Joey expressed she watched Queens of Diamonds and Hearts, while Roger said: "I also watched My Date with a Vampire!"

Joey was asked if she feels lucky to be able to jump from ATV to TVB and still be a lead actress? Roger, standing besides her, praised she has the ability, but Joey promptly said she must not be compared to Alice Chan. TVB produces many series and programs, they both have different directions. It was said TVB is currently lacking FaDans, so she's just here for the 'repair'? Joey laughed: "That's good!"

Ivana plays Roger's younger sister, and it is also her first TV series, Roger said: "Collaborating with newcomers, must try to fit in mutually. In this series, even the director is new." Ivana was frightened for several months when she first learned she's going to be in this new series, and had to ask Wong Cho Lam to be her psychologist. She'll be pairing up with Louis Cheung, but there aren't any kiss scenes. They both hope to portray their roles more realistically, and may request for a kiss scene.

The "father and son" Wong Kwong Leung and Wong Cho Lam "meets" and look very much like an actual father and son. Cho Lam praises that Leung is handsome, and the area that they look most alike is their noses. However, Leung thought Cho Lam was too short and asked if he had gone through puberty yet? It has been many years since Leung been in a TVB series, he joked: "I came back because I have no food to eat, there is food here at TVB, I don't have to worry about any of my three daily meals."

Natalie Tong: Jason Chan didn't dare to touch or kiss me

In TVB new series No Good Either Way, it's considered Natalie Tong and Jason Chan first collaboration as a couple. In terms of entry into the industry, Natalie is Jason's "senior sister" (see jeh), but in terms of age, Jason is Natalie's "elder brother". However, Jason smiled and said Natalie often gave him advice when they were filming, she's very attentive and knows how to look after people. When asked if she's his cup of tea? Jason laughed: "Pretty ok! (Did you two take it a step further?) No! We are friends, sometimes we go out for dinner, it's better with more friends, more to talk about! I really admire her, she's very into her work and is attentive."

Natalie Feels Jason's nervousness

Jason is full of praises for Natalie, but this See Jeh teases him, exposing that he's extremely shy for the kiss scenes. Natalie laughed: "I felt he was nervous. There was one scene about us already dating for a long time, so we hold hands and give goodbye kisses. I told him to give me a kiss, but he just kissed me on the forehead. I said no no, when we actually film, you have to kiss me on the lips! He was really shy, in some scenes where he has to sweetly please me, he didn't dare to touch me. I had to ask him back, can you just touch me? Makes me sound like a creep!"

Jason's like her first boyfriend

But, Natalie said Jason started out quiet, but he later turned talkative. She had to shout for him to stop, just like those overly active children. When asked if she likes 'cute big men'? She said Jason is like her first boyfriend, she said: "Actually his looks and personality are very similar. Although it's our first collaboration, I can easily find his strengths to like him. He's very attentive too, and knows how to look after others to make up for his deficiencies. He has a lot of potential. When we were filming, women 25 and up were just staring at him."

Leanne Li pretends to understand even when she doesn't

Recently Leanne Li got TVB's appreciation and takes on a lead role in new series No Good Either Way. She plays with 'sparks' with her boyfriend Wong Cho Lam's good friend Louis Yuen. As Leanne and Louis know each other very well, she laughed and said every time she sees Louis, she just wants to laugh. When asked if there were constant NGs during the intimate scenes with this good friend of hers? Leanne said: "He failed to pursue me in the series, so there were any intimate scenes."

Although it seems as if Leanne gave Louis a lemon, she actually really admires him. Aside from praising Louis as a person having the willingness to help others, she also exposed she and Louis think alike: "Each day when we get to work, after we greet one another, the next thing we say is 'What are we eating after?'"

In the past, most of Leanne's roles were either scheming, immature or rich girls. Leanne smiled and said this time she can finally return to being herself: "But, it is the old me. My role likes to enthusiastically to help others, very gentle and implicit. However, I'm not as gentle as before and I say a lot of 'rotten' gags now, so I did purposely think back of how I was like before." Leanne smiled and said thinking back when she first entered the industry, the greatest weakness was she often pretended to understand even if she didn't. She said: "Sometimes when we were chatting in a big group, because my Cantonese wasn't that good, sometimes I felt lost, but to fit in the circle, I would just smile and nod pretending that I understood. It's not too good to be like that. Luckily, a friend woke me up and said each individual are from different circles and have different personalities, I just have to be myself and relax."

It's been a long time since Louis came back to TVB, asked if he'll be shooting a TVB series again? Louis said: "I still owe them a 40 episode series. Put it on hold first! (Hold until you become a veteran actor?) I hope I'll be retired by then, just keep it on hold! In fact, I have always wanted to outline a TV series different from today's average series, but then can't be too different because Hong Kong audience are still family oriented and won't understand." When asked if he's referring to Master of Play being too different? Louis stressed he didn't say that. Perhaps he'll shoot a Ricky Wong series? He stressed again he still has a contract (per series) with TVB.
