Joyce Tang Unlucky in Love for the Third Time; Boyfriend French-Kisses Another Woman
After dumping less-known star, Derek Kwok (郭政鴻) last year, Joyce Tang (滕麗名) who used to be a magnet for attracting bad love cheats, finally found someone worthy in March this year. Joyce’s new boyfriend, 40-year-old Matthew Chu (朱建崑), appeared to be a stable and mature man who worked at Canon under the sales department.
Initially thinking that a boyfriend outside the entertainment circle would not be as heartless as her previous famous ex-boyfriends, Joyce was proven wrong when it was exposed that her new love Matthew was nothing short of a jerk either. Matthew had allegedly seen that he was able to effortlessly court Joyce without splurging on anything lavish. Thus, he continued to date Joyce unsuspectingly behind his other steady girlfriend of many years, enjoying a serial dating life swarmed by two women!
Last Tuesday, on August 23rd, Joyce’s boyfriend Matthew accompanied his official girlfriend for Happy Hour before leaving and locking lips with her in a taxi. The duo then alighted at Matthew’s residence in the Hung Hom district and stayed there for the night.
Last Friday, on August 26th, Matthew forked out time to accompany Joyce for a meal, singing karaoke and holding hands, clasping fingers with Joyce while shopping in Tsim Sha Tsui. However, they did not spend the night together.
The following Monday, on August 29th, the reporter showed Joyce, who tragically became the third party, a photo of Matthew locking lips with his official girlfriend. Upon seeing it, Joyce’s eyes brimmed with tears but she held them back, put up a strong front and said, “There’s nothing wrong!” Joyce completely denied that Matthew was her boyfriend. Alas, there’s nothing more painful for a woman than falling into a love trap once, twice and for the third time now!
On August 12, 2011 at 8 PM, Joyce Tang’s boyfriend, Matthew, drove a white BMW and appeared in Happy Valley. The woman sitting beside the driver was not Joyce but Matthew’s official girlfriend of many years. Dating two women at a time but having no vigilance, Matthew parked his car near “Laughing Gor” Michael Tse’s (謝天華) residence and alighted with his official girlfriend. The couple browsed in a convenience shop nearby before making their way back to the BMW. Inside the car, the duo smoked and chatted, laughing from time to time. However, no intimate movement was spotted yet.
Last Tuesday, on August 23rd, at approximately 7 PM, Matthew left his office in the Hung Hom district and took a taxi to cross the causeway. Matthew then alighted in the Central district and walked over to the pub nearby to meet his official girlfriend. At approximately 9 PM, Matthew, his official girlfriend (who was donned in office wear) and another middle-aged lady left the pub together. The trio later went to a nearby lane and puffed some cigarettes. After smoking, both of them bid farewell to their companion and left.
Although there were a handful of taxis to take, Matthew didn’t want to pay for a detour and dragged his official girlfriend to Queen’s Road before boarding a taxi together. The taxi then stopped at Causeway Bay’s Crowne Plaza Hotel. Matthew and his official girlfriend then went up to the rooftop bar to continue drinking and chit chat. The duo looked like they had endless topics to talk about and became more excited as they were talking and sat closer and closer to each other. However, Matthew still controlled himself hence there wasn’t any abnormal behavior.
Around 11 PM at night, Matthew and his girlfriend flagged a taxi and left the scene. After less than three minutes of getting into the taxi, Matthew immediately reached for his official girlfriend and anxiously kissed and held onto her. Within a short taxi journey of twenty minutes, they mostly french-kissed half of the time. Upon reaching his Harbour Place apartment in Hung Hom, Matthew hastily alighted and entered his unit with his official girlfriend who stayed for the night.
Swaggering Around Town
Two days later, last Friday on August 26th at around 6 PM, Matthew knocked off work on time and left with his male colleague. They boarded a car which had been waiting below their building for a long time. The trio then alighted at Tsim Sha Tsui’s Knutsford Terrace for Happy Hour. Around 8 PM, Matthew bid goodbye to his bald colleague and traveled to Prat Avenue’s Neway Karaoke Joint to meet Joyce and their friends who were already waiting inside. Matthew was on leave the next day while Joyce didn’t have any filming commitments. At around 12:30 midnight, after the karaoke session ended, they walked over to Kimberley Road to collect their car. As it was a weekend night, the streets were still filled with people. However, the two-timing Matthew was not the least afraid and publicly linked fingers with Joyce Tang.
When together with his official girlfriend, Matthew was in charge of paying for taxi fares, drinks and meals. However, when faced with Joyce, it was a different story altogether. Not only did Matthew not drive his car to fetch her around, even when Joyce went to pay the parking fees for her car, Matthew just stood at the side and didn’t do anything, not even offering to pay for her. While Joyce was paying her parking fees, Matthew however crept up and gave her a bear hug from behind, looking every bit like a new couple who was hotly in love.
Pitiful Joyce Tang who was still oblivious to her boyfriend Matthew’s Casanova behavior, even took pains to drive in circles near Matthew’s Harbour Place residence twice, for fear that Matthew’s residency will be made known to the paparazzi. After confirming that no one was following them, Joyce finally felt at ease and dropped Matthew off. Joyce was, unfortunately, not asked to stay for the night and had to drive back home alone.
Joyce’s Bumpy Love Road
Much of Joyce Tang’s precious youth was dedicated to Marco Ngai (魏駿傑). After dating for nine years, the couple finally broke up when Marco allegedly cheated on her.
Joyce Tang, who was 35-years-old this year, entered the industry at a tender age of 19-years-old after participating in the New Talent Singing Awards in 1995. Joyce was first introduced to the television audience through A Kindred Spirit <真情> and proceeded to act in dramas Old Time Buddy <難兄難弟>, Armed Reaction <陀槍師姐>, A Step Into The Past <尋秦記> and other titles. Although she has been in the industry for many years, Joyce was still hovering around the second line actress position and has yet to see a breakthrough in her career. Her love life was also as bumpy as her career. After dating for nine years back then, Joyce and Marco split up due to Marco’s unfaithfulness. Thereafter, Joyce got together with Derek Kwok, only to learn that he already had a family of his own, which made the innocent Joyce getting labeled as a third party.
The Men in Joyce’s Life
In 1998, Joyce Tang and Marco Ngai were paired as a couple for TVB drama, Armed Reaction <陀槍師姐>. The couple soon fell in love off screen and dated for nine years, even approaching the stage of marriage. However, in 2006, when Marco went to Chongqing, China to film a drama, he dated female student Zhang Li Hua behind Joyce’s back. In May 2007, Joyce and Marco announced their break up to the outside world. Within less than half a year, Marco hastily married new love Zhang Li Hua in a flash.
In 2007, Joyce Tang filmed War of In Laws 2 <野蠻奶奶大戰戈師奶>. Her “reel love” with Derek Kwok soon turned into real love as the duo was photographed smooching in the car, dating and roaming the streets and became inseparable. Their development in love was indeed extremely stable.
However, in 2009, a reporter exposed that Derek was a “serial dater” and had even secretly conceived a daughter with a mainland woman. Derek had also allegedly kept Joyce in the dark about it and only diligently pursued her in order to ensure that he could be promoted. However, as a result of his selfishness, Joyce was innocently labeled as a third party by the outside world. Unwilling to be a third party, Joyce had no choice but to retreat from the romance.
Trying Her Best to Fight Back Tears
In her Weibo blog, Joyce referred to herself as being blissful. However, ever since meeting up to sing karaoke with boyfriend Matthew last Friday, Joyce never met up with her boyfriend again.
The previous Monday, on August 29th, Joyce started filming for the new TVB food program,<怒食街頭>, which she was co-hosting with Jazz Lam (林子善). After filming wrapped up, Joyce who was filled with loneliness, shopped along the streets of Central and Causeway Bay all by herself. At 10 PM, Joyce who was preparing to leave after getting a manicure, accepted an interview with the magazine reporter, speaking about her boyfriend’s infidelity for the very first time.
M= Magazine reporter; J= Joyce Tang
M: Last week, we captured you holding hands with your boyfriend, looking very sweet together!
J (Smiles sweetly): How pretty was that photo?
M: You guys have dated for quite some time now; will you disclose it publicly?
J (Happy to a maximum point): Wouldn’t lahs!
M: Have you guys met each other’s parents?
J (Coquettishly): Won’t say lahs, these are personal matters!
M: Do you know that your boyfriend already has a girlfriend?
J (Glances over at the photo taken of Matthew and his official girlfriend): Is it?! They are only colleagues or friends right?
M: Your boyfriend was french kissing this woman on board a taxi. They even went to his house to spend the night there.
J (Looks closely and carefully at the photo, face immediately sinks and eyes brim with tears): Okay lahs.
M: Do you know that you have become a third party?
J: There’s nothing wrong! There’s nothing wrong!
M: There’s nothing wrong even when your boyfriend and that woman (his official girlfriend) went into his house and spent the night together?
J (Went entirely silent for 10 seconds and her voice started to tremble): There’s nothing wrong wor!
M: You can condone your boyfriend cheating behind your back with another woman?
J: I have never said that he was my boyfriend!
M: Will you draw a clear line with Matthew?
J (Anger starts to erupt): Draw what clear line lahs! We are just ordinary friends so why is there a need to draw a clear line?
Joyce Tang who refused to admit that she was dating, had already betrayed herself when she previously revealed on Weibo that she was in bliss thus indirectly admitting that she was in a romance.
On August 24th, the following day after her boyfriend had cheated on her, an unsuspecting Joyce Tang who had fallen deeply in love, was all smiles when filming with Jazz Lam, Meini Cheung (張美妮) and others in East Tsim Sha Tsui for food program,<怒食街頭>.
Famous Men Who Cheated
Out of ten men, nine would definitely cheat on their other half. Regardless of whether they were attached or married, men who do not think with their brains, usually end up dragging himself and others down.
Kasey Lin (練海棠) has been married to Christine Ng (伍詠薇) for many years. Last year, he was exposed to have dined with another young lady in Central while Christine was away overseas. Kasey had allegedly even caressed the other party’s hand and drove her home with his seven-seater car.
In 2005, Joey Leung (梁榮忠) went behind his then-girlfriend, Margaret Chung’s (鍾麗淇) back and made out with Queenie Chu (朱慧敏) in a car at Siu Sai Wan. After that incident, Joey’s image plummeted and carried the label of “Cheap guy.” Margaret Chung then moved out of his home and split ways with him.
During the end of 2008, Joe Ngai (倪震) was photographed seeking for pleasures in a Lan Kwai Fong night club without the knowledge of Vivian Chow (周慧敏) and cheated on her with a 22-year-old city girl Zhang Mao. After which, he received Vivian’s forgiveness and in a dramatic twist of events, got married with her.
Chu Pui Hing
In 2007, ex-RTHK radio broadcasting chief Chu Pui Hing (朱培慶) went to the Must Kawa nightclub in Causeway Bay. When leaving, he was photographed holding onto mainland stripper, Coco. Swarmed by reporters and photographers, Chu Pui Hing immediately hid behind Coco. It was not a pretty sight indeed.
Ever since she ended her relationship with TVB less-known star, Derek Kwok, in August 2010, Joyce’s colleagues from TVB and her outside friends eagerly arranged matchmaking dinners for her, hoping to help her find another romance in life. After getting hurt numerous times, Joyce tred her steps cautiously until she met Matthew Chu, who worked in a sales department at Canon. The chanced meeting at a friend’s luncheon successfully stirred up Joyce’s interest in Matthew.
Often wearing proper business suits, Matthew appeared gentle and refined. It was also a plus point that he possessed a sense of humor, making him extremely compatible with Joyce. Although he was just an average white-collar worker, Joyce did not mind. Dating for many months now, Matthew and Joyce were starting to get photographed by the paparazzi. However, despite constant prompts from his colleagues, Matthew still refused to admit his relationship with Joyce, only replying, “Joyce and I are only friends!”
Some of Matthew’s colleagues already knew that Matthew had a long-time girlfriend for many years and didn’t feel a tinge surprised about Matthew’s involvement with Joyce Tang, “Matthew’s overall formal office wear image when meeting clients is really deceptive. Those who do not know him might think that he is a mature and stable man. On the contrary, Matthew loves to club and have fun. Those who are notorious for clubbing in night clubs, they all know him. Matthew often clubs three to four days a week! He often goes for quick affairs behind his official girlfriend’s back. But I must really hand it to him. Who would have thought that he was so highly-skilled to even snag a TVB actress!”
Joyce Tang, who was romantically in love, became a spokesperson for a breast enhancement salon earlier on. Initially thinking that she was lucky both in love and in career but alas, it was all just a facade. In May this year, Joyce and Matthew returned to Hong Kong after a trip to Bangkok. They publicly displayed acts of affection at the airport and Joyce was smiling from ear to ear, clearly smitten.
When dating, Joyce Tang only cared about feelings and not money. Since he didn’t have to spend much while out on dates with Joyce and with bragging rights of having an actress as a girlfriend, Matthew naturally wouldn’t give up this rare opportunity. Tough luck on Joyce though for mistakenly thinking that she finally attained a golden bachelor boyfriend, even taking no chances to protect this romance by denying that she’s dating anyone, only to discover that it was happiness for nothing. Turning into a third party overnight, fate was indeed cruel for playing tricks on Joyce Tang.
Other Muddleheaded Celebrities
Victory and love often make people lose their senses. Unscrupulously spoiling other people’s romance just to get what they want, putting a label of “foxy vixen” on them is indeed justifiable, such as Sonjia Kwok (郭羨妮). However, in the sea of love, besides the existence of foxy vixens, there are also ignorant and naive women too. Initially thinking that true love was in their grasp, only to find out later that the other party already has a steady girlfriend, completely display muddleheadedness. Such was the life of people like Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣).
In 2006, Sonjia Kwok allegedly got romantically involved with Michael Tao (陶大宇) during the filming of TVB’s police-themed drama, On The First Beat <學警出更 2>. At that time, Michael Tao’s wife, Wong Wai Po, publicly criticized Sonjia in front of the media, saying, “Sonjia Kwok is the third party!”. After one year, Michael and his wife officially divorced and Sonjia was labelled as a “vixen,” plummeting her image down to the lowest point of her career. In 2008, Michael Tao amended his ways and broke things off with Sonjia Kwok. Thereafter, Sonjia got together with mainland martial arts choreographer, Zhu Shaojie, and even got engaged to him.
In June 2011, Linda Chung was exposed to have secretly dated lawyer and former classmate, Felix Lee (李傲富). However, she later found out (through the media) that her boyfriend was two-timing her with another woman. As it turned out, Felix didn’t make things clear with Linda that he already had a long-time lawyer girlfriend, Joyce, and was clearly dating Linda behind Joyce’s back too. As a result, Linda unknowingly became a third party.
