    Patrick Tang resigns from role due to love triangle storyline with ex-girlfriend Katy Kung; Penalized to have contract extended by 3 months

    Although Patrick Tang and Katy Kung have broken up for 3 years, recently in order to create buzz, TVB wrote a love triangle storyline for the two actors in new drama "Trendy Leader". According to sources, Patrick Tang is preparing to get married soon. Because he doesn't want this previous relationship to be put on the table and create disturbances for his fiancee, Sukie Shek, in addition he also needs to go through surgery because of kidney strones, he resigned from his role in the drama. Because of his rejection of the role, TVB gave him a penalty of extending his contract by 3 months. Regarding this, Patrick Tang admitted: "Yes, there is such situation." According to sources, because Patrick feels his TV career development hasn't been going very well, he has decided that he will not renew his contract with TVB at the end of the year when it expires.

    Ever since his "mentor" Stephen Chan left TVB in 2012, 40 year old Patrick Tang had been given small roles. Thankfully, his love life has been quite smooth. Last year, he met Sukie Shek in the play they cooperated in "Hollywood in Big Hotel (大酒店有個荷李活)" and now they have planned to get married this year.

    However, luck hasn't been going his way recently. Other than needing to go under surgery because of kidney stones, according to sources, in order to create buzz, in TVB's upcoming drama "Trendy Leader", starring Moses Chan and Sisley Choi, the producer arranged a love triangle storyline for ex-lovers Patrick Tang and Katy Kung, who broke up 3 years ago. Katy Kung would be the third party of the love triangle. Because of his health and because he is getting married to his girlfriend soon, he did not want his past relationship to be put on the table; therefore he decided to resign from the role. As a result, TVB gave him a penalty for exiting the drama, extending his contract by 3 months. His contract was to end at the end of this year.

    According to a source: "Patrick and Sukie are planning to get married this year, so he doesn't want his past relationships to be used to create news and buzz. Although Patrick and Katy are still friends after breaking up, but he doesn't want such news to cause Sukie to be unhappy. Plus, his case of kidney stones has recurred, so his health condition isn't that good. Therefore, he decided to resign from the role. Who knew that TVB would say that he is rejecting the drama, and made him extend his contract for 3 months. Actually, according to law, Patrick doesn't have to accept such unreasonable requests. Everyone can see how "important" TVB really sees him in the past few years. The company doesn't even have any reason to extend his contract. Actually Patrick has found a lot of achievement in plays in the past two years, so he's decided that he will not renew his contract at the end of the year. But he really does thank the company for having given him opportunities in the past, so if the company insists on extending his contract for 3 months, then he will agree."

    Girlfriend Sukie Shek praises him for being "man"

    Regarding having been asked to extend his contract because he refused to play the role in having a love triangle with Katy Kung, Patrick responded through telephone the day before: "Not convenient to say so much, but such situation has happened. But to me, just go with the flow." Asked if he just had a kidney stone surgery? He said: "Thank you for your concern. I'm Ok. I can't say too much, sorry."

    Sukie Shek also admitted she has heard about the issue with her boyfriend and TVB, she responded through phone: "I heard about it. Not convenient for me to comment on this matter. Every company has their own process. Whatever Patrick does, I will support fully. He has a lot of talent in acting." About Patrick Tang not wanting her to get disturbed so he rejected to cooperate with Katy Kung, Sukie replied sweetly: "Very man." As for Katy Kung, when she was asked about TVB arranging a love triangle storyline with Patrick Tang, she replied: "I am not that sure about this. But if we have to cooperate, I wouldn't mind."

    Janet Chow and Timmy Hung's second son, JT is born!

    31 year old Janet Chow and 40 year old Timmy Hung's second son, JT was born yesterday! Yesterday afternoon, Timmy Hung announced the news on Weibo, saying he has become a father again, and posted a picture of JT sticking his tongue out. Netizens left comments, sending their blessings. Many said that JT looks a lot like his brother, TJ and that both JT and his older brother looks like their grandfather, Sammo Hung. Timmy revealed that Janet and JT are bother very healthy, but after giving birth, Janet is very tired. He also said on JT's behalf that he wants to hurry up and go home to see his older brother.

    Earlier before, Janet posted on Weibo saying she can't wait to see her new song: "Waiting for the arrival of Hong Dai Yan's younger brother, JT." Finally, the news of JT's birth arrived yesterday afternoon. The first to reveal the news was Timmy's good friend, Benjamin Yuen. He uploaded a picture of JT on Weibo and wrote: "Congratulations to Janet Chow and son, both are good and healthy. Timmy Hung's car club has a new member!" Afterwards, he may have realized that he was too quick, as the family themselves have not announced the good news yet, so he deleted the post not long after.

    Not until 5pm in the afternoon, did Timmy Hung personally announce the good news on Weibo, and uploaded a picture of JT: "Hi all! I've arrived to this world today, please look after me. Mommy is already very tired today. Please let her rest, don't disturb her! Mother and son are good, please do not worry. Really want to go home and see my older brother. Thank you for everyone's love and care, love you all."

    Timmy: The process went smoothly

    Timmy Hung replied MingPao reporters and expressed: "The baby is 7 pounds and 11 oz., very heatlhy. Mommy is very tired, so hope everyone can give her time to rest. I am very happy being a father again, the baby is very healthy and mommy's health is okay. The process went smoothly. Thank you everyone. I will attend a function tomorrow, so I will speak to everyone tomorrow." Yesterday night, Evergreen Mak visited the family at the hospital. When he left, he was asked whether JT looks like Timmy or Janet? He said, too young, not sure yet. He also expressed that Timmy told him to tell the media that he would stay at the hospital the whole night.

    Janet Chow wants a daughter the most

    Two years ago in January, Janet gave birth to their older son, Hung Dai Yan. At the time, he was 7 pounds and 6 oz. and was said to look exactly like his grandfather. Now, Hung Dai Yun is already two years old. Janet Chow has always wanted a daughter. Last year in November, when she announced her 4 month pregnancy, she revealed that they were having a baby boy. She expressed that boys have their good qualities too.

    Aimee Chan has no plans to film dramas until two sons are a bit older

    Aimee Chan has no plans to film dramas until two sons are a bit older

    Yesterday, Aimee Chan and Joyce Cheng were guests for the ribbon cutting ceremony for a new store opening in Causeway Bay. Pretty mommy Aimee Chan wore a dress revealing her shoulders. Evidently, her body has slimmed down a lot after giving birth to her second son, Nathan Lucas, two months ago. She laughed saying being busy taking care of two kids helped a lot with getting slimmer: "The older one is 16 months old, and the smaller one is only two months old. Older brother is very attached (to me), so at first, I was scared he would be jealous. He does a little bit right now, but he's still very obedient and he loves his brother a lot. He takes pictures of his little brother sleeping and gives toys to him to play with." She expressed that they haven't given Nathan Lucas a Chinese name yet. They hope to give him a good name according to his personality.

    Will start to take on events and commercial jobs

    Right now, Aimee Chan really enjoys the happiness of taking care of children, but she still hopes to be a career woman and handle work at the same time. Therefore, recently, she has started accepting event appearances and commercials. Will they put their "baby plan" to a rest for now? She replied: "I want to work first, don't want to stop working for too long. Ah Mo (husband Moses Chan) also supports me. (Does her husband get jealous for being neglected?) Not really, there's a lot of joy and happiness in the house right now. The children are very weird and funny." However, filming dramas involves many constraints and takes up a lot of time, so she expressed that she cannot handle it yet: "Wait until my two sons are a little older. The younger brother still needs to be breast-fed, because older brother was breast-fed until he was 1, so I want to be fair."

    Dee Hsu involved in a road accident

    Dee Hsu involved in a road accident

    Amidst rumours of being domestically abused by her husband, Taiwanese television host Dee Hsu made the headlines again after she had accidentally injured herself by falling off a bicycle on Tuesday.

    On Wednesday, the 36-year-old personally recounted the entire process of her mishap on her Facebook account and apologised to her fans that she needed to take time off her talk show to recuperate.

    She explained, “I happily rode on the bicycle with my husband and our friends yesterday. However, I misgauged the speed while we rode downhill, flew off my seat and landed on the ground face flat. We immediately called for an ambulance but I was petrified and in immense pain then.”

    Dee also went on to thank her friends and family for their concern, expressing her gratitude towards her older sister Barbie Hsu for replacing her on her talk show and her husband Mike Hsu for his care.

    However, this incident had once again reminded netizens of Mike’s alleged abuse towards Dee. Barbie, who stepped out to deny the rumours on behalf of her sister last week, also published an article yesterday to clarify the new issue.

    “I will be replacing Dee on Here Comes Kangxi tomorrow and I am really nervous. You (Dee) really love to fall down! But as long as you are fine, I will always be your support!”

    “My brother-in-law (Mike) is really unfortunate. There isn’t domestic violence but there are only family hugs (which sounds similar to domestic violence in Mandarin). You should go pray to the Gods,” she jested.

    Netizens also praised the close relationship between the sisters, with some commenting, “It’s so good to have an older sister” and “Barbie and Dee are very close sisters, I can’t wait to see Barbie on the show”.
