Celebrating her 47th birthday today, actress Elaine Ng (吳綺莉) uploaded a video on social media sharing her views on relationships. She expressed that when in love, you might feel that the worst thing that could happen is to lose the person that you love. However, Elaine believes that the worst thing that could happen is actually losing yourself. The statement eventually turned into a rant over her daughter Etta Ng‘s (吳卓林) marital state.
Elaine did not disclose why she suddenly decided to share her views on relationships, but a netizen brusquely commented, “Don’t share any more of this heart-to-heart talk, but tell us more about how your daughter is doing.”
Elaine usually does not respond to these type of comments, but this time she felt compelled to talk about her 21-year-old daughter Etta Ng (吳卓林). Elaine answered, “My daughter is trying very hard to think of ways to earn money to support herself and her wife…because her wife does not like working.” Elaine’s displeasure at her 33-year-old daughter-in-law, Andi Autumn, is obvious in her snide remark.
The tense mother-daughter relationship has been full of drama for years, and it intensified partially due to Andi. When Etta was 15, she called the cops on cries that Elaine was abusing her, followed by Etta slashing her wrists in several suicide attempts. At 18, Etta ran away from home to live with then-girlfriend Andi and eventually found themselves homeless in Canada due to their “homophobic parents.” The couple eventually got married against Elaine’s wishes.
Money has always been a problem for Etta and Andi because of their habit of jumping from job to job. The couple had been living for six months in Canada, where Andi was born, but returned to Hong Kong to ask for Elaine’s financial help. While Elaine is known to be critical of her daughter’s irresponsible behavior, she continues to help Etta pay rent and even give her spending money in times of need.
As Etta was barely an adult when she got married, many wonder if she made the right decision to marry Andi and whether their relationship will last. The couple’s marriage was speculated to be on the rocks when they deleted photos of each other on their social media accounts. It is almost miraculous they are still together even though their marriage has been full of rough patches and dramatic twists and turns.
