Jimmy Lin’s Mom and Wife Have a Tense Relationship

The new variety show, My Dearest Ladies <婆婆和媽媽>, features four celebrity couples, including Jimmy Lin (林志穎) and his wife Kelly Chen (陳若儀). The program sheds light on each household’s family dynamics as viewers get to see the interactions between the wives and their mothers-in-law. Out of the four families, viewers are most interested in Jimmy’s, as his mother’s relationship with Kelly is quite tense. The audience also noticed that Jimmy and Kelly’s interactions with each other are drastically different from the other couples.

In the newest episode, Jimmy’s mother invited nine friends over to celebrate Mother’s Day. To prepare for the guests, Kelly asked her mother-in-law if there was anything she should be aware of. Jimmy’s mother stared at her outfit and said, “Your shorts don’t look good.”

She then asked Kelly to immediately change her outfit. After changing into some long jeans, Kelly took care of her mother-in-law and the guests by pouring them tea and making them coffee. Her mother-in-law’s friends immediately complimented Kelly for being so filial and mentioned that Jimmy’s mother would often compliment her. One of the friends advised Kelly to call her mother-in-law more often and invite her to live with their family. She added, “To be a successful woman, it is important to know most things.”

Kelly’s Eyes Turn Red

During the gathering, Kelly went to the garden to answer her mother’s call. When she asked her mother how she is as a daughter, her mother responded, “You are a present from above, and I am very grateful. You know you weigh a lot in my heart.”

After hearing those words, Kelly’s eyes turned red as she felt guilty she couldn’t spend the day with her mother, and instead had to deal with her mother-in-law’s picky friends. Many netizens said, “Daughters will only be cherished by their mothers.”

On the contrary, viewers enjoyed watching Qin Hao (秦昊) and Annie Yi’s (伊能靜) family because Annie has a good relationship with her mother-in-law. Not only are they good friends but they also share common interests, such as going to the spa and losing weight together. Their interactions are very direct and relaxed, unlike Kelly’s and her mother-in-law’s. Many could feel Kelly tense up in fear of doing the wrong thing in front of Jimmy’s mother.

  1. =/ Mama Lin is probably the type that thinks no one is good enough for her son. I really dislike these types of parents.

      I think we can to some extent depending on what it is. I have a feeling there may be some truth to this as I heard that Jimmy’s late father did not like Kelly either. Jimmy said that it did not matter if his parents liked his wife or not but it only mattered if he likes her. That speaks volumes….

      1. @hetieshou I wonder why they agree to go on the reality show if this is the case. If she’s my daughter I’d be heartbroken to know my treasured daughter is being treated that way and on tv for everyone to see.

        I am wondering the same thing… But then again this is Jimmy Lin who lied about his wife and sneaked all the way to the US to give birth so his son can get US citizenship. Basically saying that he wants privacy and all that stuff. But then he exposes his son to the max on that dad reality show. I truly wonder if it is all just for money since I heard these reality shows pay big bucks. Since Jimmy is not popular anymore this may be his only way of making money now, who knows?

        My late parents’ worse fear was my in laws not liking me and making my life hell so was very strict with me. But sadly if someone does not like you, they never will. I find it sad that even after 3 kids, the mother in law still does not like her. I guess his mom will never like her regardless of what she does.

      3. @bizzybody
        He has 3 sons now so the more money the better. Who ever complained that money is too much? Plus, he has not released an album or acted in a movie or series for a very long time.

      Jimmy did not get plastic surgery. I was his fan since his teenage days and he looks the same but just older now. I am not sure about botox but I do not think he got that either as his face is not stiff. He just has a baby face naturally.

      1. @hetieshou Agree with you. He always had a baby face. If he did have plastic surgery or botox the surgeon or beautician doing for him must be really good.
