Joel Chan’s Ex-Wife Hints That He Is Not A Good Guy

Macau casino king Stanley Ho’s (何鴻燊) third wife’s daughter, Florinda Ho (何超雲) received her parent’s silent approval and acceptance of boyfriend Joel Chan (陳山聰). Upon returning to Hong Kong recently, Florinda the heiress took action. After a good day of rest, she anxiously went to Yang Ming Shan mansion yesterday evening to meet her boyfriend, Joel. The couple was only apart for half a day and had already rushed to meet each other. It appeared that their romance was boiling hot!

Past and rumored boyfriends sent their well-wishes to Florinda one after another. However, Joel’s ex-wife has yet to say anything about this but instead used Weibo to convey her feelings and tweeted that there was no point being hung over a man who had been snatched by a third party, while clearly enlightening things from such a subtle hint.

Risking dumping away his TVB rice bowl, Joel persisted in accompanying Florinda on a tour of Europe to nurture feelings between them and thus winning the heart of the heiress. After returning to Hong Kong, Florinda confirmed to her family that Joel was her boyfriend. Last night, casino king Stanley and his third wife especially requested to see their prospective son-in-law, Joel and judge for themselves about his “quality.”

Through a three-hour get together, Florinda received her father’s approval about her romance with Joel and wrote on Weibo at dawn, “Finally reached home, haven’t had dinner with everyone for the longest time and especially missed my dad…. It was aextremely emotional! One simple dinner of normal dishes and one ‘good friend’ who was invited by  my parents, had received my family’s support.

“Our feelings for each other are stable, just thinking back about it makes me feel loved and satisfied. Grateful to everyone for all your well-wishes…I’m really touched! At the same time, I hope the media and reporters would give us a little space…today has been way too tiring for you guys!” Florinda’s comment suggested that it has been tough for the paparazzi to follow them around all day, including waiting at the restaurant for the family to finish dinner.”

Netizens Admire Joel For Not Having To Work Again

Joel was chauffeured from Florinda’s mother’s apartment to Mayfair in the car usually used by casino king Stanley. This led everyone to think that Joel was immediately moving into a luxury house (at Mayfair) under Stanley’s request, thus successfully elevating his status. However, as it turned out, Joel was only at Mayfair to meet with his friend. Afterwards, his friend drove him home and then returned to his own home in Yang Ming Shan mansion.

Yesterday afternoon around 5pm, Florinda walked out of her family’s apartment and wore a low-cut outfit, looking like a French woman in her get-up. Florinda then walked towards the gate and boarded a car. While walking, she let the media snap all the photos they wanted and didn’t seem to care, clearly in high spirits. However, Florinda declined to answer any questions as she was anxious to rush over to Joel Chan’s apartment to see him. The couple was indeed inseparable! Sources also cited that Florinda whipped up a dinner full of love on her own for Joel that night.

Casino King Stanley Had A Good Impression Of Prospective Son-In-Law Joel

As Joel Chan has already stepped half a foot into the Ho family’s luxury door, many netizens expressed their admiration of Joel not having to work again and living leisurely for the rest of his life. However, according to insiders, during the gathering that Joel met with casino king Stanley, besides vowing to treat Florinda really well, Joel also pledged to work hard on his job. If Joel wanted to succeed in becoming the Ho family’s son-in-law, it wasn’t exactly going to be a piece of cake as he still has to overcome many tests.  Fortunately for Joel, Stanley’s first impression of him wasn’t too bad at all.

Joel’s Ex-Wife: “A Guy Who Is Actually Good In Nature Will Not Be Snatched Away

Florinda’s ex boyfriend, Eric Ho (何敬豐) and rumored boyfriends, Steven Cheung (張致恆) and Pakho Chau (周柏豪) sent their blessings one after another. Eric Ho tweeted on Weibo, “Congratulations! Seeing that you were willing to take the first step, felt that you have really grown up. Cherish your life and wish that you will always be happy and cheerful.” Steven Cheung tweeted, “Isn’t it good this way! I don’t feel that it’s a trouble, I will definitely support you!” Not only that, even Florinda’s younger sister, Laurinda Ho (何超蓮) sent her well wishes.

On the other hand, Joel wasn’t as lucky as Florinda. Besides receiving words of sarcasm from many netizens, his ex-wife, Ponny Yeung posted a paragraph on Weibo, “Towards a girl who snatched your boyfriend, the best ultimate revenge is to let her have him, because an actual good man will never be snatched away by others [seemingly hinting that if he was really a good man, he wouldn’t be tempted by a third party to leave this woman].” Ponny also placed a thumbs up emoticon beside that paragraph to express her approval.

Sharon Chan (陳敏之) who used to be long-time buddies with Joel Chan but has since fallen out with him due to his disappearing act, said blandly yesterday, “I only knew about it (Joel’s romance with Florinda) from the newspaper reports. Well, as long as he’s happy. It is very normal to date. I don’t wish to comment on other people’s personal affairs.”

    Oh my god so it’s true that Sharon and Joel has fallen out since his disappearance. This is why they don’t play out in weibo anymore. Sharon sounds cold in her response.

      I don’t think Sharon has fallen out, but maybe because she hasn’t been able to reach Joel in the last couple months, she was a bit worried and maybe disappointed that he didn’t return her calls/texts. Joel wasn’t in HK for the last couple months, right? So I assume they don’t go out for dinner as much anymore. But now that he’s dating Florinda, I think he will even have less time for his friends.

      Well, just like a relationship, a friendship also needs to be kept up to date and you need to keep the bond going or else you will just grow apart. That has happened to me and many of my friends in the past. If you don’t contact someone for awhile, then the distance just grows to the point that you become strangers…

      that’s what I also speculated in a previous post but some people were saying Sharon is still friends with Joel.

      Like I said before, hearing from what she said, I don’t think she and Christine are close friends with Joel anymore. They used to hang out together and go out to dinners etc. But after the incident how Joel didn’t return her phone calls and disappeared without saying anything, they were quite disappointed. She used to be very open and spoke about Joel but now she doesn’t want to comment because she doesn’t know him anymore or keep in contact with him anymore to make a comment.

      Joel used to be in the same group as Sharon, Christine, Claire, Tavia… but all the girls seem like they don’t keep in contact with him anymore…..

      I think his friends are disappointed in him.

        I said that and I can ensure that their relationship is still well.

        Still can see Sharon’s reply in different aspect.

        Have a question back that why both Ron and Joel dun seem to close with TY anymore in the recent months :P.

        BTW, Joel seems to be pathetic in the above article, but there are a lot of “friends” sent him blessings but Face dun mention.

        @Lara,
        I can see what you are saying and as I have mentioned, a friendship just like a relationship takes work to maintain. Friendships are even harder to maintain after you date, but it is still very possible if you put in the effort to do. My guess is Joel probably did not put in that effort for his friends and as a result, they are now disappointed in him. I also would feel the same way if my friends never contact me after I try to contact them. However, if they do still want to be friends and explain to me why, then I would forgive them and we would be friends again. But if they just blindly choose their girlfriend/boyfriend over their friends and just disappear for months without a word, then I am not sure if I can accept that.

        I agree with Fox. I don’t think Sharon has fallen out with Joel.

        When I read the earlier report where Sharon said Joel didn’t return her calls, I sense worry more than disappointment. She was worried about him because she didn’t know what has happened to him.

        As for her not wanting to comment on Joel, it think it’s because Joel is in a sensitive position now and maybe she didn’t know all the facts. So, she’s more careful in her comments.

        @Fox:

        I’m not sure about Joel but all of Joel’s friends don’t seem to be close to him anymore. Isn’t Joel also close with Raymond? But Raymond also has his own scandals to deal with so he probably has no time to care about Joel anyway.

        As for Ron, he recently mentioned Tavia in an interview of ATF filming on set (TVB8) in early August … and also made fun of Chris Lai and Tavia rumors in July.

        They’re still close: picture taken in April 2011 – don’t think acquaintances would sit or touch each other like that hehe. http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg215/redhotchilipeper/taro-4.png

        Oh you are mentioning of the Face mag? Lol, this day TY ran to Ron, sit on him and posed V gesture. When Ron saw the reporters, he immediately put his hand out of her body. I guess he dun wanna make his Viann angry =)).

        And Ron unfollowed TY for more than a month ago. My friend who is a big fan of Ron said so.

        Joel’s male band are: LF, Ron, Derek, Bosco and Oscar. Lol, except Oscar, all 4 are having own problem and scandals. They dun say doesn’t mean they dun hang out together. We only know when they upload stuffs on weibo.

      • lara replied:

        Well he had her arms around her as well. Ron actually unfollowed all of his female colleagues not just Tavia because of the ‘Viann speculation’. Sharon, Charmaine, Nancy, Joey… all of them…. Are you saying he had a fall out with all of them too?

        Ditto. Tavia and Ron could be still keeping in contact with each other through other means. We only know when they upload onto Weibo. *shrugs*

      • Fox replied:

        He still follow Joel :P.

        He has just unfollowed all female actresses, but TY is the first one.

        You think Joel’s friend are disappointed at him because they dun keep contact with him like before, then I ask for the same question with TY as 2 of her “good friends” suddenly not close to her. That’s all. *shrugs*

        Login or Register before you can reply to Fox
      • lara replied:

        Your point? Well then, if she was the first one, that just goes to show, she probably the most closest female friend of his that he had to unfollow because she is the ‘biggest threat’ to Viann. lol

        My thoughts on Joel’s friends being disappointed in him does not stem from being unfollowed or followed in Weibo only. Ron and Tavia were never that interactive on weibo to each other anyway. Plus even after Ron unfollowed her, they have been at so many events together after that, and they joked around, made fun of each other like old times so I can see they’re friendship has not been affected. So what you said about ‘Ron being not close to Tavia because he unfollowed her on Weibo’ doesn’t really make sense.

        As for Sharon, Christine and Joel, they used to interact HEAPS on weibo. Comment on each other’s photos, having dinners together, uploading photos, hanging out at each other’s homes…. well clearly that just doesn’t happen anymore and could be a reflection of their change in ‘friendship’. Furthermore, Sharon has spoken about Joel in a different way from before. She seems to distance herself, and also mentioned to media that he never returned her calls. I’m just judging based on a few things not just weibo like you are with Ron and Tavia – which is a completely different story….

      • Fox replied:

        You get my point directly. I say if you view Joel’s friendship this way, I can view TY’s friendship with Ron this way.

        Like I said, Sharon’s answer can be viewed in different aspect and Kidd said my words.

        Then you can view that Ron and TY are very close, I can view that they are not really close :). Look at how he put his arm out of her when he sees the reporters, lol. I may say that TY liked him but he dun like her so he did that, keke.

        Oh well, only them can really know what happen inside. Some can say “we are friends” but in fact, they curse each other every nites.

        That is how it is in the circle… You wonder if there are truly any true friends?? I used to think that members of bands/groups are the closest of friends since they would go through thick and thin together, but now I realize that that is not true at all…I just learned that a lot of them actually don’t get along that well at all. But in front of the press and public, they act like the best of buddies.. I don’t get how they can do that because I would not be able to do that unless we were acting in a series. I guess that is why they are “actors and actresses”.

    Charmaine is also a good friend with Joel and Derek Kwok!

    Why did Sharon and him have fallen out? She sounds normal in her response. Perhaps they haven’t seen each other in a while.

    I think Joel Ho’s wife is right that she’s better off WITHOUT him too. right or poor, how can ANY girl trust a guy without integrity or loyalty?

    As for Florinda, it’s sad she’s always needing to buy stuff and do so much for her bfs. And the princess will never be sure they can just like her for herself even without a penny to her name.

    My take is the older Stanley Ho daughters (from wife #2) are maturely wise in their romantic decisions, and how to conduct themselves with dignity.

    The younger ones from the 3rd and 4th wives always seem to be throwing themselves at guys or stars, wasting $ or trying too hard to be seen in outlandish fashion.

    As for Joel Ho – nevermind how he just jumped ships to worship money. It’s downright unprofessional to abandon and dissapear for 3 months. It’s not like his mother is sick or dying … he went off to play in Europe. Both of them seem plain irresponsible.

    And I don’t understand how netizens can actually envy him for not having to work anymore. Is money and power worshipping so important that it overrides how you get there, these days?

    • Chriselle replied:

      It’s Joel Chan, btw. Lol.

      I think the reason the children of the third and fourth wives spend more and all over stars is because they are still young and haven’t gotten to that stage of maturity yet. Most young people who come from wealthy families might have this mentality as they haven’t had to suffer anything to realize that money doesn’t come easy.

      Agree with you nomad. Joel’s wife is better off without him. If I have a husband like Joel, I would leave him too.

      @Nomad822,
      Very well said and I agree with you! I find it sad that he would leave his wife for a younger and richer girl. Is it really that hard to find a guy(or girl in some cases too) that will be faithful to you for the rest of your life??? I don’t mean to jinx it, but I have a gut feeling that they may not last since they both don’t seem really responsible and may like each other, but if that’s all then the relationship may only be short term…Who knows though since only time will tell…

      Joel Chan and his wife had a 10 year relationship. In 10 years, especially when he hasn’t got married with her, is he more free to find young and beautiful girls? Not mention of rich. Why he needs to get married with Ponny then divorce her and go with Florinda? The point here is Ponny is 11 years older than Joel, is a normal makeup artist and Joel is richer than her.

      Give him a little credit. He isn’t useless or poor or pathetic like the tabloids stated about him.

      And for all the bashes fell on him, he wanted to hide for a while, I dun think it’s too bad of a guy. You have never felt of running away from everything?

      If she wants to get into HK entertainment, she can easily establish connection with producers and filmmakers with her social status.

      Her sister Josie Ho(from another mom) is an actress of her own, unless they’re not close or affected by family feud 😛

      Maybe she thinks because she is rich and can easily get access to money so she doesn’t even want to be an actress? Being an actress is really hard work.

        And I believe that he will be more famous comparing to others supporting B rated actors in TVB.
        And at least Virgina Lok congradulations him on his dating, usually Virgina Lok does not like to reveal actor/actress dating.
        Obviously Virgina Lok didn’t want to make the Ho’s family upset if she just deny Joel is dating Florinda.
        It still a plus that he is dating the Ho’s daughter.
