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.
