1993 - 1995
- "BEHIND THE SCENE" FOR PUBLIC VIEWING
for more explanations about the disappearance of Joey Wang? Besides
the two rumours reported in the last issue, there is another story
about Wan'gs recent screen absence. This one says that Wang was
carrying on a hot affair with a popular Taiwanese actor (Wang
is herself Taiwanese) who just happens to be married, and the
little homewrecker is being booed and boycotted by the Taiwan
filmgoers, who reported stayed away from GREEN SNAKE in droves.
Since the Taiwanese release of HK films is big money for producers,
they can't afford to have a film fail there simply because of
an actor, and Wang has been sent on vacation until things cool
down. No word on wheher the adulterous Romeo received thesame
treatment from fans, but I'm betting he didn't -- his devoted
wife probably didn't even divorce him, let alone grab a kitchen
- Putting the Pieces in the Puzzle
that's right, I did promise sinners too: not too many on this
go-around. Sally Yeh keeps finding herself in the middle of other
peoples broken romances, at least in court; recently she was not
only supposedly mentioned in Mrs. George Lam's divorce complaint,
but also found herself subpoenaed to testify about a former boyfriend's
harassement of her in his latest ex-girlfriend's battery suit.
Speaking of supposed homewreakers, still no screen appearances
by Joey Wang Tsu-hsien, but her photo is slowly starting to show
up again in a few magazines".
- A LOOK AT SOME WESTERN MISCONCEPTIONS & MISUNDERSTANDINGS
ABOUT HONG KONG FILM
former beauty queen, Joey Wang Tsu-hsien, aka Joey Wong Jo-yin,
has stolen many a gweilo heart in her ghost story getups, and
has been given official status as one of Jackie Chan's "little
sisters" since their work on CITY HUNTER (that means she
is being promoted by Jackie/Willie productions and is probably
represented by Willie Chan); she had been making appearances and
singing with Jackie for special events. Two concurrent rumors
about Wang's recent absence from HK film offer conflicting stories:
in one she has sold herself to a multimillionaire as his modern-day
concubine and is holed up in a fabulous mansion, waited on hand
and foot (hey, don't blame me -- it was printed in a Taiwanese
newspaper); the other has her returning to Taiwan to pursue a
pop career and starting a heavy schedule of coaching, etc".
