• @krys327 I wouldn't even waste my time towards people who made me uncomfortable. She should have just blocked him. I don't know who she is until now, is it because he got a little more known, and the recent fan thing she decided to release the text? Why not release them when she felt bothered?
  • Sexual harassment is a crime in most developed countries and it's taken especially seriously in the workplace. From reading the text messages he sent TikChi, it is obvious that he was harassing her for sex and on multiple occasions. He showed no respect for her as a woman nor as a friend. It is humiliating and insulting to be talked to like that by a guy friend that you've known for years. I don't know what her true intentions were for exposing him, but she did nothing wrong as he should take responsibility for any of his actions. If he doesn't want to be exposed, don't text her that. I think the fan is definitely more ridiculous sounding than TikChi, from the way she talked about her pregnancy and baby. Someone said he should find a wife and have all the sex he wants. But in his messages to TikChi, he said he is not looking for a girlfriend. He just wants to play around with different girls and thinks he has the right to because of his looks and celebrity status. I don't think actors/actresses should sleep with their fans unless they want a serious relationship. The same reason a psychiatrist can lose his license for dating/sleeping with a patient. It's because of the dynamics of the relationship where one can be easily manipulated. It was consensual, yes, but she might've been naive and really believed he wanted to be her boyfriend based on what she knows about him from seeing him on screen. The housewives and TVB audience most likely has a bad impression of him now and wouldn't want to see him on the screen. If that's the case, TVB has a right to terminate him as they are in the TV business and have to respond to the audience. They are probably already receiving complaint letters from the audience.
  • @krys327 it does make you wonder. A man doesn't wake up and decide to bring a female to a hotel and have anorher male friend there. Don't forget the fact that he is still considered a newlywed, with a decent, beautiful wife and an adorable baby waiting at home. He has gotten into cheating and weird sex games before. The thing is, things went wrong this time, and he wasn't in china, where the woman would be crucified, threatened, called crazy and not believed.
  • @lynn90 Which makes you wonder if he had committed similar crimes in China in the past, but was too powerful for any word of this to get out.
  • @krys327 you are observant. You could be right about them opening the studio in their own apartment. They will still have to pay business tax, but it saves them rent. They seem to have done it on the cheap so the business did not need a huge amount of money to get off the ground. Well, I wish the business well, for Etta's sake, and I hope she can grow and mature. I'm hoping that she patches thing up with her mom as she only has one parent.
  • Looks like all they bought was the light and curtain. The price listing specifies that the clients have to bring their own cameras. They may also be operating the "studio" in their own apartment.
  • Spoiler alert. As an Asian American, I liked the movie. The protagonist is an American born Chinese. The movie was about her journey to Singapore and her experiences trying to get her boyfriend's rich Singaporean Chinese family to accept her. It didn't matter to me how "Hollywood" this film was, as it was made in Hollywood in America, and catered to the typical Hollywood movie goer. The glitzy larger than life scenes are in many Hollywood movies, which may not reflect reality but it may be what some audiences enjoy seeing. That's why there are so many reality shows featuring rich people and celebrities, where some of the drama is made up or exaggerated. Some people wished that there were more scenes about family values and that the culture shock that the main character had, had more to do with financial disparities rather than race and identity. I think it has to do with both. Finances, yes, that's why the movie is called Crazy Rich Asians. Ideas about the importance of family are also there. Michelle Yeoh explained that she teaches the family how to make dumplings to remember the work and sacrifices it takes to raise a successful family. Sacrifices that may include not marrying the person you love (Henry Golding giving up Constance), staying in Singapore to run the family business, instead of being free to selfishly pursue one's passion in the states (as Constance said she was very passionate about her job). She didn't think Constance would make a good wife because she didn't think she will make those sacrifices for their family. Constance proved her wrong when she was willing to give up Henry Golding and his wealth for the sake of Michelle's Yeoh's family and Henry's happiness (not having to choose between Constance and his family). Constance showed that she loved him enough to sacrifice her own happiness, and that she was courageous enough to tell Michelle she was doing so not because she was scared, but because she loves him. Also that she had the upper hand (on the mahjong table, and in their relationship with Henry), but was willing to give it all freely to Michelle. I think that already says a lot about Chinese culture, familial duties, and sacrifice. People who want something more in depth can watch Asian dramas, as you said there is more of that there. It's also hard to compare an Asian drama that is many episodes long to a 2 hour movie. Also, most people watch romantic comedies just expecting a good time and entertainment, which is the type of genre this film is. It never set out to win an Academy Award. I think this movie did what it wanted to accomplish. The book on which this movie was based, was written by an author who grew up in the states. This is his story told through his lens. The movie made headlines in the media because it has been 25 years since the last Hollywood movie with an all Asian cast. It's not meant to represent all Asian minorities out there, nor all different types of Singaporeans. Henry's family is Singaporean Chinese, and rich as the title describes. Also, anyone of Asian descent in the states are classified by non-Asians as simply "Asian", as most people can't tell the difference between the different ethnicities of Asians. I think that's why the author named his book Asian, instead of Chinese. As for other types of Asians, or those of non-wealthy backgrounds, there can be other movies featuring the stories of those people. It's really hard for a movie to represent all Asians and all financial backgrounds in 2 hours and that's not what the book was about. When the book was written, he didn't expect it to be made into a movie. This is the story he wanted to tell. It's sad that this movie is subject to so much criticism because of the hype of it being an all Asian cast. Also, most people feel this movie was a success because the goal was to create a Hollywood movie that non-Asians can enjoy and relate to, so that directors will cast more Asians in movies in the future. It was not meant to be an epic film, but to show Americans that a normal romantic comedy can feature an Asian cast, and still be enjoyable to watch. As of now, even Asian characters are played by Caucasian actors and actresses in Hollywood movies. Hopefully, in the future, race won't be a consideration in any casting director's mind as he creates his cast, even in movies that don't feature martial arts, or anything specifically Asian. I hope the world can see that Asian Americans can also represent the American experience and perspective on common every day life experiences.
  • Buying a sports car for these people with too much money is like buying a Coach handbag for us commoners. The Coach handbag is ~6x the price of a decent handbag at a department store and 15x the price of one at a discount store, but sometimes we just want to splurge for the thrill of it. As for why he's not saving for a house, he probably already has enough money in his bank account for a few houses. Why don't we save the extra $150 we have for something useful and practical instead of a Coach handbag? I do agree though that he sounds pretty obnoxious in his comments about owning a Lambo.
  • @vodka My cousin dated her ex for over 10 years and they never got married. She then met her current husband and married him within a year. Now they've been happily married for over a year now. The same thing happened to one of my close friends. If you're in a long term relationship and you're not married yet, it's likely that you guys are always fighting and the girl is frequently crying. So once you meet someone who treats you completely different, you are better able to appreciate the character traits in this new person. These traits are probably ones that your ex were lacking. After dating for many years, and many fights along the way, you better realize what is important to you and what makes you happy. And you're able to recognize these traits in a person right away, maybe even within 4 days of meeting the person. Also, it's normal to gush about your partner when you are dating someone new and in love. I do it and so do my girlfriends. I know you're supposed to be more reserved in front of reporters, but sometimes my sister/gfs continue talking even when they sense we are tired of hearing about the guy. And it's a completely normal reaction to want to justify a seemingly rushed marriage to reporters. Doesn't make the love any less real.
  • @isay I feel like she might have said that because her parents didn't like her ex. But who would, if the guy dated your daughter for 8 years and still has no plans for marriage? It sucks when you date someone and none of your friends and family members like him. When you're in love and everyone else around him loves him too, then everything seems to be perfect, like he is the right one. Especially if they didn't like your previous boyfriends.
  • What about Alex? Did she come back to film the finale?
  • @kiki Chiropractors can make a lot of money. Americans with back pain love going to the chiropractor and some of them don't accept insurance, so the patients pay in cash. It looks like Jeremy is pretty well reviewed too, so I'm sure he has a lot of patients. Especially since the article states that his clinic employs 7 people. If it's that big, his business is doing pretty well. https://www.ratemds.com/doctor-ratings/1215276/Dr-Jeremy-Leung-Burnaby-BC.html
  • @coralie Seems like she wants to expose her mom to show people what she has to go through at home. Her mom was only arrested because she told authorities that her mom is an abusive alcoholic. She's old enough to know the ramifications of posting a picture like that. I'm sure she did it on purpose.
  • And what's wrong with sharing info about her own life with the public? It's not like she's spreading rumors about other people.
  • After seeing this picture of her, I can see why people think she looks like a witch.
  • @jjwong They were so lacking in leading men they had to cast Krystal Tin as both a male and female lead in that series.
  • @m0m0 "i think this is a major risk for her given that she’s known for her beauty not other talents she may have" Hence her wish to attend acting school. I'm sure she will be a much better actress with talent when she graduates.
  • Charmaine is 40 and was cast in multiple movies last year. Liza Wang was main actress in Limelight Years. There are plenty of starring roles you can still play at age 37. Juilliard is one of the most prestigious schools in the world for acting. I'm sure the faculty have connections that can help graduates with Hollywood and Broadway jobs post-graduation. Directors probably scout out the graduates every year. If they only accept 10 students total per year, they will invest heavily on these students and try to maintain the name of the school.
