The lighting engagement and marriage between Barbie Xu and Wang Xiao Fei once again grabbed tabloid headlines . This time, the focus fell on Ady An Yi Xuan, who had originally introduced Barbie and Xiao Fei at her October birthday party. Although rumored to be Barbie’s Maid of Honor in the upcoming wedding, a disheveled Ady angrily addressed Barbie in a television interview. Ady questioned whether Barbie thought of her as a matchmaker, love rival, or bridesmaid?
From her outburst, this may be proof of Ady admitting earlier rumors of having a crush on Wang Xiao Fei. The outburst may also signify the breakdown of a formerly strong friendship between Ady and Barbie.
Barbie and Xiao Fei’s marriage triggered numerous scandalous rumors. It was rumored that Barbie may have been the third party in Xiao Fei’s relationship with ex-girlfriend, Kitty Zhang Yuqi. These rumors were denied by Xiao Fei. Allegedly, Xiao Fei’s mother, Zhang Lan, may have paid Kitty $6 million (Yuan) in order to leave Xiao Fei. After these rumors subsided, Ady An emerged into the already crowded picture. Although she was the matchmaker in Barbie and Xiao Fei’s romance, she may have also harbored feelings for Xiao Fei. Earlier, Ady also angrily noted that Kitty Zhang reacted surprisingly calm in light of Barbie’s recent marriage to Xiao Fei.
A visibly tired Ady said in her interview that she did not receive any invitation to be the Maid of Honor in Barbie’s wedding. “From matchmaker to abandoned Maid of Honor, I really don’t know what I am?” The following statement led many netizens to believe that Ady was expressing her anger towards Barbie,”I do not know in the end whether she regards me as the matchmaker, Maid of Honor, love rival, or what position. Maybe I need to ask her!”
Jayne: Sounds very scandalous! Ady An did sound upset in her statement. Perhaps she did have feelings for Wang Xiao Fei, but Barbie dated and married Xiao Fei so quickly, there was not much Ady could do.
It’s true the weddings often bring out arguments among best friends and weddings are known to end some friendships. People get so emotional during weddings, which is considered one of the biggest days in their lives. Best friends of the bride (or groom in some case) can feel neglected or hurt while the couple are busily preparing for the big day. Old hurt feelings also come up in a big way as tensions become high.
People say that best friends often have the same taste in men. My best friend and I used to like the same guy in school, but since neither one of us dated him, our friendship was not affected. Even if it’s fair competition and the guy is free to choose, someone will get hurt. Carina Lau and Margie Tsang’s friendship was affected when Carina dated Tony Leung? Ady An upset at Barbie Xu over Wang Xiao Fei? Any other famous celebrity BFF’s fighting over the same man?
Is true love worth the expense of a deep friendship? Is it ethical to date a man whom you know your BFF may be deeply in love with? The man may or may not have returned feelings for your BFF. Despite this, by you dating the same man, you know this will hurt your BFF deeply. Do you justify dating/ marrying the man because a true friend will come around sometime and realize that love is unpredictable and beyond your control? A difficult decision depending on your value of love, friendship, loyalty and ethics.
