During its broadcast, TVB talk show Mean Talk extracted shocking confessions from its guest stars. In recent episodes, Sisley Choi (蔡思貝) reveals the extent of her frugality, while Karl Ting (丁子朗) confesses his past crush on Roxanne Tong (湯洛雯).
Sisley Hurt by Mean Gossip
In the beginning of her career, Sisley was often labeled as a “flirting machine” on the filming set due to her lack of boundaries with the male cast and crew. When host Bob Lam (林盛斌) pointed out that she had 15 rumors in the past few years, the actress admits it was partially her own fault. “I really didn’t know how to avoid anything. I learned a really hard lesson.”
Elena Kong (江美儀) then asked about rumors of Sisley’s newfound “wealth” which was attributed to her being linked with a married businessman. Quick to defend their friend, Winki Lai (賴慰玲) and Stephanie Ho (何雁詩) said Sisley’s “wealth” came from years of frugality. Nodding in agreement, Bob once observed “her car was so cheap that it probably wouldn’t even resell for $3,000 or $4,000 Hong Kong dollars” and asked Sisley why she did not get a new car.
Deeply hurt by the rumors, Sisley did not try clearing her name due to her pride. In between sobs, Sisley said that no one thought twice about the truth and did not realize her “wealth” is exaggerated, as she still sleeps in a bunkbed in a 200-square-foot apartment.
Thinks of Roxanne Tong as a Goddess
In another episode of Mean Talk, Karl revealed his crush on Roxanne at the beginning of his career. When Karl had numerous retakes during filming, only Roxanne tried to encourage and help him on set. She even defended Karl and asked others to cut him some slack.
When Elena asked why Karl did not ask Roxanne out on a date as he seems impressed by her good qualities, the actor admitted that he did ask her to see a movie together. However, they ended up watching the movie together on FaceTime, and they did not talk about anything personal as he only asked her work questions.
Karl then added, “Soon after that, the news of Roxanne and Kenneth Ma (馬國明) surfaced, so I didn’t pursue any further.” Elena rebutted, “You’re only saying you didn’t ask her out, because you probably did in the past and failed!”
