• @anon1777 I wonder if people is this outraged when they find out one of their co-worker cheated? Not with their own spouse, just a random co-worker cheated with a random person who they barely know. Do they also go around and spam the relatives’s account of the cheater person? Lol. I think they are only this outraged because they can hide behind a screen
  • @anon1777 what she did was wrong no doubt about it. But as artists, they have people to help with their image and her PR team (maybe TVB) sucks bigtime unlike Andy's who has big name Paco to do damage control. We all say we will not do what she did if we were in her shoes. But think about her point of view now and she and everyone else are trying to move on, instead of complaining that we are owed an apology because she is a public person. If so, Trump needs to apologize for alot of things. There are better things to do than keep trashing her and living life following the entertainment industry which most of the time is darker than you think, not all glitz and glamour.
  • @mi520 i dont know either but those possibilities do seem realistic especially the first one that saying i do think if kenneth ma stays with her in the end his image with the public won't ever be the same people will look at him and remember him as the one who got "greenhatted" yet stayed with his partner. I honestly just want kenneth ma to be happy same goes for sammi cheng both really didn't need to find out their significant other had a tryst but oh well time will tell like you said sigh..
  • @llwy12 hm you right perhaps maybe thats why tvb hasn't acted the way they usually have in the past to their artists' scandels. I'm not Advocating for her to be FIRED but I just found it weird that Virginia Lok has been constantly defending JW it really isn't how VL runs tvb and it gave me a vibe that she favors JW or something but now after reading your comment i can at least see the reasoning with it. Good explanation cheers
  • @balorclub well if I was in her shoes i wouldn't have cheated in the first place lol it doesn't matter if shes a "celebrity" or not everyone will get flaked on if they cheat and then try to wave it off as being "drunk". I don't feel any bit sorry for her but i see what you on about. thing is the majority of people that are in rage over this is cuz 1. she STILL hasn't truly apologized in a sincere way like at least try to make it sound sincere jeez 2. She pulled a home wrecker move its obvious to everyone shes been at it with andy hui way before they got exposed 3. She chose to hide instead of putting a brave face & face the public 4. Shes outted herself as a "fake from head to toe type of gold digger and hasnt at least potrayed herself as "regretful" limiting her social media comments/deleting+blocking people/trying to be slick and leave the country is NOT the right moves if you want the public to lay off you. Im sure shes also truly feeling sorry because if she really felt sorry she wouldn't have slid into a married man ( and not the first one from what it seems like) DMs and had a tryst with them behind their wife's back. Thats pretty much why the public is up in arms against her of course she isn't the first and wont be the last celeb to "cheat" but "cheating" is/will always turn the public against you.
  • @anon1777 Not too much of a surprise actually, given how TVB operates. Technically, TVB doesn’t “fire” people, especially if the employee still has a long contract, since there would be legal and monetary ramifications involved with breaking off the contract early. Instead, they “freeze” the artist (put all their work on hold and take away any prospective job opportunities) – the most logical form of punishment in these instances – which essentially forces the artist to quit on their own (that’s the end goal at least), since their main source of income would be cut off (unless of course that artist came from a well-off background or has someone supporting them or has other means of income, then it wouldn’t matter). In Jacqueline’s instance – even if freezing her doesn’t force her to quit on her own and she eventually comes back, TVB can just give her small jobs or whatnot until her contract ends and then not renew her contract, after which she will be a free artist and no longer their problem. With all that said, TVB actually isn’t unique in this, as most companies don’t like to “fire” people unless they did something illegal or particularly egregious that they have no choice but to let them go…this is because of all the ramifications involved with firing someone (the monetary compensation as well as the legal ones, like lawsuits that the employee could bring on for unlawful termination for instance…plus it technically creates a lot of extra work and potential headache for the employer, since they need to make sure all their ducks are in a row in the event of a lawsuit and also opens them up to scrutiny, plus legal fees for hiring lawyers to work the case, all the documentation involved, the potential wasted time, etc.). The preferred method is to make the employee quit on their own because that’s the option with the least headache for the employer...though how the companies go about getting employees to quit is an entirely different story.
  • @anon1777 I know right, especially when Jacqueline & Andy had been going on for 2 years while Kenneth and she had been dating for 2 years. So, wouldn't that mean the day she started dating Kenneth, she had already started with Andy? I'm just trying to guess the possibilities: - Maybe Kenneth doesn't want to add oil to the fire and even though Jacqueline has cheated on him, he thinks that announcing their breakup is just going to add more negativity and possibly break Jacqueline as a person? I mean right now, the entire HK is pretty much against her. It isn't necessary to announce their breakup. - Maybe Kenneth needs time to wrap his head around this situation so he's not going to make any rash decisions. He's 45. There were news about marriage and possibly he's wondering whether he can really overcome this and forgive her. Not that marriage is always a priority, but he's getting old and family is probably an important aspect for him. - Maybe Kenneth just doesn't want to be publicized because he's afraid they are going to attack his mother with questions again and by staying quiet, the paparazzi can't do much. Time will tell. :)
  • @anon1777 I have done no research, but maybe it's because many old stars aren't renewing their contracts and they don't want to lose any more people, whether they are bad or good? I dunno lool just a thought ;)
  • @jimmyszeto if i recall virginia lok once said "artiste’s conduct and moral standard are very important to tvb's image" + criticized coffee lam heavily for her "sex scandel actions/behaviour on how it destroyed tvb's public image/interests" she said the same words during sire ma scandels mind you sire ma was suspended until her contract ended. i dont see how that should be any different in JW's scandel unless tvb hasnt taken a public hit ?
  • @jimmyszeto she did get blacklisted she wasnt allowed to appear any tvb related shows for 2 years after her scandel + got her pay cut every year. She wasnt allowed to take part in a tvb drama until 2014 by the end of her contract years. She also never received vocal/public support from tvb during her scandal unlike Jacqueline whos received heavy support from tvb which i find shocking its like shes Virginia lok's treasure or something
  • @anon1777 Shirley Yeung didn’t get blacklisted. He appeared in a few shows then acted in one last series before her contract ended. Jacqueline won’t even get a few TV shows. Viewers will boycott her and companies won’t be as willing to purchase adverts at previous prices if she appears on screen again.
  • I also have no idea why kenneth ma has not broke up with her what man/woman will want to stay with someone whos clearly cheated on them multiple times. The same goes for sammi cheng i dont get it how can you ever look at them the same way do they have no shame/dignity? The way this is going it looks more and more likely tvb is going to bring Jacqueline wong back after this "scandal"dies down and spin it as an actress who "has regretted her actions and worked hard to leave behind her issues" even tho she has still refused to publicly apologize or show any attempt to actually make it look like she regrets her actions all shes doing is hiding away from the public but she couldnt even suceed in leaving the country without anyone knowing. I read somewhere that when she was caught in LA her face was so dark doesnt look like someone who thinks shes done wrong or "crying" "emotional unstable" lol
  • What blows my mind is how is she not fired yet by tvb. If i recall coffee lam was fired straight away after her bathroom tryst. Shirley yeung was blacklisted until the end of contract due to her scandal.There were a couple more actresses/models that got blacklisted/fired due to minor scandals forgot their names but point is Does Jacqueline wong have something on Virginia lok or is her influence on TVB really that big that they just gunna wait till this blows over&start casting her again. But i mean i never liked her always thought she was with kenneth ma for fame/position power in TVB.
