Accompanied by Pregnant Wife, Benny Chan Intends to Apologize to Rose Chan

Benny Chan (陳浩民) and Joe Ma’s (馬德鐘) touching Rose Chan (陳嘉桓) inappropriately in Hengdian, China evolved into scandal shocking the entire Hong Kong! Yesterday, Benny and his wife, Lisa, returned to Hong Kong to await the impending birth of their first child. Due to the scandalous air, Benny and Lisa had to proceed carefully and did not step outside of their apartment in Hong Kong. Benny decided unwaveringly to appear with his wife to apologize before Rose Chan and admit his wrongdoings, hoping that his sincerity will salvage his image.

Scolded by the entire city of Hong Kong, Benny has not made an official appearance yet. Last night, a large crowd of reporters gathered outside Benny’s residence. At the time, someone dialed the police hotline seeking help. Police officers arrived on site to investigate the situation. The Oriental Daily reporter successfully reached Benny’s cell phone. Benny replied, “I am locked at home reflecting on the incident. I cannot speak to you; please let me go!” Benny quickly hung up the phone.

No Time to Care About Joe Ma

In a telephone interview, Benny’s manager, Charlie Lam (林查理), stated, “Today at 4 PM, Benny and his wife will appear to discuss the incident and issue a public apology.” (Joe Ma drew a clear boundary away from Benny Chan; are the men’s friendship over?) “I do not have time to handle that aspect. The immediate priority is to make [Rose’s sifu] Sin Kwok Lam (冼國林) not as angry!”

The reporter received Benny’s “press conference invitation” last night, in which Benny’s choice in words referenced his regret and indicated that he was at home repeatedly contemplating his wrongdoings, which hurt Rose Chan immensely. Benny indicated that upon learning his lesson, he sincerely regretted his actions.

Benny’s Wife Forgives Him

About to give birth to their first child, Benny’s wife, Lisa, loved him deeply and posted a photo of her pregnant state online. Lisa posted a well known quote from Japanese author, Haruki Murakami,  “It does not matter what the entire world thinks; I believe that my feelings are right….If you like something, you will be able to persevere. If you do not like it, then it will not last no matter what the circumstances are.” Lisa signed off the message with, “Love you @Benny.”  It was apparent that Lisa had already forgiven Benny’s wrongdoings. Afterwards, Lisa reposted a photo of Jessica Hsuan’s (宣萱) dogs, commenting that they were cute. Lisa appeared to be in a good mood.

Below is the text of Benny Chan’s “press conference invitation” tomorrow:

Dear media friends:

Regarding Miss Rose Chan’s unpleasant experience several days ago, Benny Chan felt deep regret over his conduct after getting drunk in Hengdian. Over the last few days, he remained home blaming himself and reflecting upon the matter. His misconduct not only hurt Miss Rose Chan and friends who loved her, but also Benny’s parents, his wife, who is about to give birth, and his friends who support him. Benny felt an unlimited amount of regret. Since the mistake has been committed, Benny Chan sincerely wishes to appear publicly to discuss the incident and convey the sincerity in his apology to Rose Chan. Benny’s wife was heartbroken and sad over the incident. Hopefully, after this lesson has been learned, Benny will sincerely regret his actions. We also hope that Lisa will also forgive her husband’s misconduct after he got drunk. Tomorrow, Lisa will accompany Benny at the press conference to discuss the incident and will officially apologize to Miss Rose Chan.

Jayne: We will see what Benny has to say at the press conference, in which I expect general sweeping statements will be made, without detailed description or explanation of what had actually occurred. I think Benny’s public apology will be very similar to the above text in the press conference invitation sent to the media.

It sounds as if Benny’s manager, Charlie, is forcing him to stay home and think about what happened, instead of Benny doing it out of self-will.

Will Benny cry at the press conference tomorrow?

    thats the F**king problem with M A L E actors. each time they cheated on their wives, they appear in public WITH THEIR WIVES to make public apology and stated that their wives have forgive them! yeahhh… who cares if your wives forgive you… most importantly, WHAT EXAMPLES HAVE YOU SET TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC??? same goes to Jack Neoh (Singapore)

      wow! this is exactly what I was thing as I read the news. Exactly like Jack Neo’s way of handling the scandal. Making the wife come out to support and possibly cry as well at the PC. Shameless shameless shameless!
      As seniors in the industry, new starlets might feel the pressure to be ‘friendly’ but the friendliness I am sure has boundaries. Some guys just cannot take No for an answer.

    I bet he will cry lol! I bet his very pregnant wife will cry too…you know seeing a pregnant woman cry really softens my heart. Maybe this is why she was also invited. Perhaps this sounds cynical, but I think it is a ruse. Well, I am sure the feelings of regret are real now haha but the press conference is a form of appeasement for the media, not between the two parties.

    If Rose and her sifu do not accept the apology, they will be painted as cold-hearted ::shrugs:: I will be frank, this has become played out like a parent-teacher conference about child’s misbehavior. A sincere apology will be done face-to-face, one-on-one, and between Benny and Rose. Benny’s camp is really hamming for sympathy with the inclusion of his parents and pregnant wife (restated over and over).

    Since Benny is bringing his wife, Rose should bring her parents too, so Benny can apologize to them. Hey…if you;re going to drag an entourage into the mix, then there should be equal numbers on both sides.

    But that’s just my opinion.

      When a male celebrity cheats and it is publicly exposed, people are usually quick to throw darts at him for violating the sanctity of marriage. Given Benny’s career built upon family-style televisions dramas (formerly at TVB and now in mainland), his image needs to be somewhat family-friendly. It’s been two days of public outrage and criticism and we’re likely ready to hear his apology because frankly, who wants to criticize forever?

      If the wife can forgive the cheating husband, other people will let the news fade a bit. Benny has his wife and little baby helping him. In another week or so, we will see Benny showing off photos of his baby. The “good father” image may help people put behind the cheating husband and groper tags quickly. A cute baby softens everyone’s hearts…. A new family deserves a second chance.

      In this respect, Benny’s misconduct may have been more severe, but he appears to have more supportive wife vouching for him instead of Joe Ma.

        “LOL I have become entrenched in this latest scandal, what can I say.”

        I can tell you have a strong sense of justice. Rose’s situation can happen to any woman; the common occurrence of it really strikes a chord. Many women have probably experienced unwanted physical attention and hopefully they can extricate themselves before it goes too far.

    He shouldn’t make his wife go with him let alone she is about to give birth.

      Did you know about the stupid scene created at a press conference by famed singaporean director Jack Neo? He cheated on his wife; he offered film roles to young new actresses and one rejected her and reported him. I can’t remember. Anyway he dragged his wife to that press conference and the poor wife, ready to forgive him collapsed emotionally and he cried and held her and stuff. That was dramatic. That is dragging the wife.

    @ Funn

    I agree with you on Jack Neo.

    I am all about forgiving wrongdoers and all but Jack Neo’s press conference was a bit too much.

    It ran uncannily like one of his over the top drama skits.

    Jack was crying and all that, and then his wife was pushed into the limelight – she was sobbing and she whispered in a faint voice that she had forgiven her husband and she pleaded with everyone to give them some space. Then she got more agitated, sobbed loudly and semi-fainted, upon which Jack and other helpers descended upon her and half carried, half dragged her body out.

    Meanwhile the camera flashes were going off like crazy and the reporters had a field day. To make things more dramatic, one of Jack’s lackeys, a supporting actor, whom acted gangster roles, started waving his hands wildly in a protective fashion over his boss and ma’am, and shouting at the reporters loudly “Stop filming! Stop filming!”

    Kudos to Jack for making an entertaining spectacle out of his apology press conference.

    Believability gauge? Close to zero.

      Do you know what happened to this Wendy girl who had affair with Jack for 2 yrs?

      And how did the girl’s parents reacted when they find out their young girl had affair with this so much older producer when she was just 20?

        No more news. She has got her 15 min of fame. I remember Jack Neo crying and screaming “GO AWAY! GO AWAY!”

        Not sure which actor you’re talking about, is it Mark Lee, the thin tall scarred face guy? Not even sure if he was there. I remember Mark Lee was very angry with Jack Neo. I met Mark Lee in person before, he was quite a nice guy. What a spectacle and I do like Jack Neo’s films by the way.

    Talk about Class, Benny was with Charmine at one point but then again Charmine has been so many guys too.

    Charmaine had an interview with Stephen Chan in the past, she told him when she graduated from HS and went overseas for college, she had a taiwanese boyfriend and they lived together and even went to Taiwan with him for a while after graduation. But then she went back to HK after they broke up. Right there, you known she was quite lose during her early days. The only thing i don’t get is that she looks like a man in a woman’s body and still attract so many perverts like Benny. The only thing I could think of is that she must be good in bed or blowing the flute. She does not look attractive whatsoever, but it’s a whole different story behind close doors i guess.

    This issue should have been a small mole hill but has now turned into a mountain. Rose Chan is putting on a show to the public. The entertainment industry is full of sleazy men, who loves nothing better then deflower and hassle pretty girls if they are silly to let these men do it too them. I find it ironic how the public is in an uproar over two stupid non-famous actors feeling up another non-famous actress when other female celebrities (not all but some) would be more the willing to bed sleazy men in order to get their foot in the door or get promoted to do films etc. This kind of stuff probably happens behind closed door and no-one spills the bean. Happens in Hollywood, happens in Bollywood and I am sure it happens in the HK entertainment industry.

    If Rose wasn’t pregnant with Benny’s baby would she still forgive him?
    Just saw the J2 news on the press conference held today. Benny was weeping like a baby and when he was about to leave he staggered along the way while weeping uncontrollably!Wth?Somebody pls send him back to acting class!He’s OTT “emotion” was so fake! Moreover his wife seem careless about his sudden outburst too.

        Yeah I think the wife is probably all emotional with the hormones running through her body. Honestly seems like she forgave him real quick. Probably because she doesn’t want to go through the pregnancy alone since she’s about to give birth soon. It would be quite sad not to have your husband there for support.

        I like that his wife was very composed and classy when she give her short speech. No crying and stuff.

        Benny kinda overdid it. Maybe he was genuine in his crying. I mean, his career might go down the drain and he be charged with molestation. He has reason to cry and regret. But, him regretting causing Rose and the parents and teacher pain? I doubt it, looking at his first weibo post just a few days ago where he was very sarcastic.

        I think it would be better if he didn’t cry.

    his wife will be there to draw ppl sympathy. Like Jack Neo (Spore celeb) who has an affair last time also bring his wife out to apologize to public, his wife even cry and fainted. From my personal opinion, it’s not really necessary to bring out his wife. He made his mistake himself so don’t drag out his wife. It will look even more fake…
