Since being groped controversially by Benny Chan (陳浩民) in Hengdian, Rose Chan (陳嘉桓) has resumed her spirits and was currently filming new movie Glory Days <光辉岁月>. Aside from veteran actors, Eric Tsang (曾志偉) and Felix Wong (黃日華), Rose’s other costars in the film included two rising new actors, Shaun Tam 谭俊彦 (Ti Lung’s 狄龙 son) and Edward Chui 徐伟栋 (Michelle Yim’s 米雪 nephew). Face Magazine claimed that Rose flirted outrageously with the male actors on the set, spurring crew members to call her by the derogatory nickname, “Little Tramp”!
Face Magazine claimed that when Rose’s mother and manager, Ronnie, was not by her side, Rose took the opportunity to “chasing men.” After filming hours, Rose went to karaoke with Shaun Tam and Edward Chui until dawn and going on drinking binges together. Due to her flirtatious behavior, Rose was known on the set as “Little Tramp” while Ellen Chan (陳雅倫)was referred to as “Big Tramp.”
Rose’s management company issued a statement clarifying the allegations over Rose’s flirtatious behavior, noting that the tabloid released an exaggerated and false report. The statement claimed that Rose got along well with Glory Days’ crew members in Yunnan, China, without anyone referring to Rose with a rude nickname. Since the accusations defamed 19-year-old Rose Chan’s reputation, her management company retained the right to pursue legal action.
Edward Chui Not Interested in Rose Chan
Currently rumored with Rose Chan, Michelle Yim’s nephew, Edward Chui (son of actors, Norman Chui徐少强 and Shirley Yim 雪梨) appeared at a mainland promotional event yesterday. Edward denied the romantic rumors and professed that he was not interested in Rose.
Edward explained that on that fateful night, he, Shaun Tam, and Rose Chan attended dinner with a large group of people. When the tabloid photos were taken, Edward, Shaun and Rose were waiting by the restaurant’s door for the other people. Edward added, “If each time I were to possess romantic interests in each of my female costars, then wouldn’t I be very busy? It does not matter to me, but it is quite pitiful for Rose Chan [to be impacted by such rumors]!”
Rose Chan posted on her Weibo blog last night, “I see the rainbow again. In 2012, I hope that only good things will remain and will be everyone’s golden age.”

Jayne: I think the stigma of Rose’s earlier scandal with Benny Chan and Joe Ma may remain for a long time. In scandals of such controversial nature, the woman’s reputation is usually more damaged than the men’s, whether the men are married or not. Thus, Face Magazine capitalized on such double standards to push their story further.
