Hollywood Picks Up Lesbian Heiress’ Love Story
Above: Sean Yeung and Gigi Chao’s love story to be made into Hollywood film.
The love story of Hong Kong heiress, Gigi Chao (趙式芝) and her lesbian partner, Sean Yeung (楊如芯) will be made into a Hollywood movie, entitled The Lesbian.
After Gigi and Sean made their marriage announcement in September, Gigi’s playboy billionaire father, Cecil Chao (趙世曾) did not accept their relationship. Cecil even made a public announcement that he is willing to pay $500 million dollars to find a potential husband for her daughter. The “marriage bounty” attracted 20,000 worldwide applicants who wanted a chance to become Gigi’s future husband.
Since Cecil Chao’s outrageous announcement, American Broadcasting Company (ABC), sent a TV crew and cameraman to film a daily chronicle of his life. In addition, an American film company also expressed interest to turn the wealthy family’s love drama into a movie.
Last night, Cecil attended a Hong Kong premiere of the detective movie, The Mousetrap, and many members of the ABC TV and production crew were also present at the function. Cecil and his two beautiful foreign companions arrived at the premiere in his open top convertible sports car, and many reporters were there to take photos causing a huge traffic jam. Cecil got out of the car, and told the media that he only has time for a 15-minute interview.
Cecil revealed that ABC’s 20/20 is doing a special segment on his life in Hong Kong, and the TV crew has been following him all over town. He also mentioned that the two beautiful women are friends of his daughter, and they were to accompany him to attend different functions such as yachting and dining at restaurants. Cecil’s new girlfriend, Lena, was busy and not present at the premiere.
Cecil was asked whether he was angry that Hollyood movie, The Lesbian, will be based upon his daughter’s love story. He said, “I am not angry. Honestly, it’s Gigi’s choice, but Chinese people will not agree with her decision.”
As for using $500 million HKD in an attempt to attract a man to change his daughter’s sex orientation,Cecil said, “I think my daughter is very straight.” When ask whether the story is becoming the talk of the town, Cecil said he never thought it would become big news throughout the world.
Gigi wrote on her blog,”Why can the Chinese society accept a man having 5 wives, but criticize a woman not choosing a man to be her husband?” This statement appears to jab at her playboy father, who once proclaimed he had bedded 10,000 women and married none.
Cecil Chao pointed out,” It’s not the question of acceptance, it’s the moral thinking. It’s her business to choose what she wants to do, but I want to give her a few different options to choose from. I hope to find her a ‘Prince Charming’. If she decides to accept a man courting her, then it’s her decision.”
Cecil also pointed out and wanted to clarify that many men had courted her. As it is his daughter’s life, he cannot make a decision for her. When prodded about Gigi’s lesbian partner, Sean Yeung, Cecil appeared upset, and insisted that he has never met her and will not accept being the father-in-law. Cecil stood firm and said, ” I don’t know this person and I have a right not to meet her.” Sean’s existence has not affect Cecil’s relationship with Gigi.
Asked about his marriage bounty of half a billion dollars, Cecil said it is also for supporting his daughter financially in the future. ” Just in case the son-in-law has no money, this will help him to invest and buy a house.” As for throwing in a pot of gold with his daughter, He said he is preparing for her daughter’s future, and believes that most of the applicants are not doing it for the money.
“The advertisement for a potential son-in-law is to give a chance for Gigi to meet more men, but most importantly, for the right man to win her heart. Otherwise, spending so much money is useless.” When asked if any of the applicants are from the entertainment business, Cecil said honestly, “So far none. I only looked at 100 applications, and most of them look decent with the exception of one or two who said they lost money in their investments and need financial help.”
