Kevin Cheng Defends Charmaine Sheh: “She Did Not Scold Niki Chow!”
Since becoming TVB’s triple-award-winning TV King, Kevin Cheng’s (郑嘉颖) workload has become overwhelming. At the same time, the amount of gossips centering around Kevin has increased as well. Recent tabloids claim that Kevin and ex-flame, Charmaine Sheh (佘诗曼) , reconciled their relationship. Rumors claimed that Charmaine even scolded Kevin’s ex-girlfriend, Niki Chow (周丽淇), in the TVB makeup studio. At a promotional event over the Christmas holiday, Kevin laughed at the recent rumors.
Two years ago, Charmaine Sheh allegedly intervened in Kevin Cheng and Niki Chow’s 5-year relationship. At Toby Leung’s (梁靖琪) wedding in early December, Kevin refused to interact with Charmaine, while taking the initiative to chat with Niki instead. This allegedly angered Charmaine. It was understood that Charmaine and Kevin have been secretly back together for two months. Allegedly, Charmaine and Kevin only retained their distance from each other at Toby Leung’s wedding to avoid the media’s suspicion of their reconciliation. Since becoming TV King, Kevin was often praised by Charmaine publicly on Weibo.
Allegedly, Charmaine was jealous of Niki, thus glared at her in the TVB makeup room one day. Another tabloid reported that to prevent any chance of Kevin and Niki getting back together, Charmaine released rumors that Niki had crew members searched when her purse went missing one day.
At a Christmas event in mainland China, Kevin sang Leslie Cheng’s (张国荣) song Blame You For Being Too Beautiful <怪你过分美丽>. The audience’s reaction was surprisingly good and everyone cheered. Kevin even said happily that there was a chance that he will release a music album next year. Regarding rumors that his ex-flames, Charmaine Sheh and Niki Chow, were at war, Kevin laughed, “The reporters writing such reports can become scriptwriters! TVB is lacking talent right now. The credibility of such reports is really very low. Charmaine is well-known for possessing a high emotional quotient (EQ). The rumors are impossible! They are very funny!”
Kevin Cheng: The Biggest Gold Magnet
Three “TV King” level artists, Kevin Cheng, Moses Chan (陈豪), and Michael Tse (谢天华) battled each other earlier at the 2011 TVB Anniversary Awards. During the Christmas holiday period, the trio rushed towards money-making opportunities. Kevin’s “gold absorption capacity” was the highest, earning $250,000 HKD at a one and half hour event, singing one song and playing games with the fans! “Laughing Gor” Michael Tse sang one song and easily pocketed $18,000 HKD. Appearing by himself and without girlfriend, Aimee Chan (陈茵媺), Moses Chan did not sing and only played games with the fans, earning $150,000 HKD, which was slightly higher than his normal fee.
