Vivian's Gossip Corner
Battle between 'Haan Mui' from two different generations.
Tsu Jing Lui vs Vivian Chow
Tsu Jing Lui
"Greed of Man 2000" has been aired for over a week (on ATV, not TVB), with the average rating of 11 points, and the stock market had lost 1500 points. Besides the "Ding Haai Effect," (which causes the stock market to drop dramatically) another thing that people are talking about on this show is that the new 'Haan Mui' (thrifty girl) is worse than her predecessor. (of course! Nobody can act as the role of 'Haan Mui' better than Vivian!!)
There were rumors about Wai Ka Fei, the producer of "Greed of Man 2000," finding Vivian Chow to portray this legendary role. However, the 2nd generation Haan Mui, named Siu Guk, is portrayed by Tsu Jing Lui, a 26 year-old actress from China, and her appearance in the series is comparable with Amy Kwok Hoi Ming and Alice Chan Wai. Yet, this girl has a solid background, and the producer is proud of her, so that's why she can take the role.
The producer never contacted Vivian
'Si Je' of Vicki Chiu Mei
Not afraid of being compared with Vivian
"Greed of Man 2000" got an 11 point rating, and the producer feels satisfied. Yet there was a report about Tsu Jing Lui not being as attractive as Vivian. Wai Ka Fei tells his own view. "You got to look at the whole thing. All the characters are different from the original "Greed of Man" (made in 1992), and it is unfair to compare between them. Also, Tsu's role is from China, and she would speak Mandarin in the series. I believe this would make a good effect. Her tearful relationship with Lau Ching Wan would become more attractive as the series rolls on, and I believe the rating would raise to 20 points."
Comparison between the two 'Haan Mui' characters
Vivian being a good granddaughter, invited her grandma to have dinner
Vivian came out from the restaurant, and her body shape didn't have a big change.
Vivian Chow, who hasn't been seen for awhile, still lives happily and would go shopping
and have dinner with her family and friends when she's free. On the 18th of this
invited her grandma and her relative to have dinner at a restaurant
located at Happy Valley. Vivian helped and cared for her grandma.
Since Vivian knows how to take care of elderly people, it's no wonder her boyfriend Joe Ngai would like her alot, and also there are rumors about them getting married this year.
Vivian really has a kind heart, not only for animals, but also for her family. As everyone knows, Vivian is a good girl. Besides buying a flat at Gam Saan Fa Yuen as her home and love nest with Joe, she also bought another flat for her mother, for the convenience of taking care of her.
Other than her mother, Vivian also treats elderly people well. At around 7PM on the 18th of this month, the reporters spotted Vivian at a restaurant near her home at Happy Valley. Vivian dressed casually, wearing sunglasses, and didn't wear any makeup. Yet, she still looks pretty, and her body is still in good shape. Accompanying her is her grandma as well as a young girl in her 20s, who is believed to be Vivian's relative.
They left the restaurant after finishing their dinner. Since Vivian's grandma had problems walking, she had to use a stick to help on balancing her body. Vivian, the good grandchild, gave her grandma a little push to help her move and also told a few jokes to make her happy.
Finally, after getting her grandma into the taxi, she went back to her home.

When news about dogs getting abused at construction sites got exposed awhile ago, besides catching the attention of artists who like pets, it also caught the attention of the pet food stores. The pet food stores contacted HKSAA (Hong Kong Society for Abandoned Animals) and donated some pet food. Vivian is the spokesperson of the organization, and Chow Wei Wei is one of the founders of the organization.To raise funds for the Organization
Chan Suk Lan, the PR for HKSAA, said in a phone interview that after the media talked about the incident, the public started to care about the abandoned animals. "Yet we are short of operation funds now. Therefore, we are planning to hold many fund raising events. Right now what's in mind is to hold a man/pet fashion show. Vivian, Jessica Suen Huen, and other artists would design clothes for the pets, and these clothes would be auctioned."
Since there was a report about Hacken revealing that Vivian got married, Hacken said he's innocent. He already explained that it's not true that Vivian is already married, just like a while ago when Lui Fong said he was already married. It's only a matter of miscommunication. He already explained all of this to Vivian, and Vivian understands everything. He hopes this wouldn't affect their friendship.
|Hacken carelessly mentioned about Vivian already being married and tried to get around his mistake in a hurry.||
Hacken Lee would do a show for TVB in October, and he will invite some female artists who are his friends to be his guests. When the reporters asked if he would invite Vivian, Hacken said this without thinking "No, she is already married. I don't know. (ooops!...looks like Hacken just said something he shouldn't have said...and now he's trying to get around it by saying he doesn't know) I can only say she would leave HK in October. In fact, she wanted to get married since she was 18 years old. I really don't know when she will get married."
Hacken doesn't know when Vivian will get married, yet does he know about when is his turn? "If the new TV series reached 60 points rating." 60 points (3,800,000 viewers)? If Hacken really means it, his girl friend Emily Lo won't be able to get married in her lifetime.
When Hacken and Flora Chan appeared at the function, Hacken said Vivian and Joe will get married soon.
Mrs. President, Hacken Lee, Cass Pang, Flora Chan, and other artists
appeared at a function which was held in a hotel yesterday. When Hacken
was having an interview, all of a sudden he mentioned that Vivian, his good
friend, will get married soon. "Miss Chow will get married soon. It's
real! When? Oh, I don't know. I had dinner with her and my friend.
I mean she wanted to get married when she was 18. How about me? I will get
married immediately when my new TV series reached 60 points in ratings."
They are low key people
Vivian feels sad about the dogs getting abused, and she would follow-up on the news.
The dogs at a construction site got abused violently by people without a
Some dogs got beaten to death and some even got their bones exposed!
The dogs ate very little food and were given left-overs from the
workers' meals. The most serious act of abuse is
... be warned ... the dog got beaten up and its penis almost got chopped off! (Talk about
an inhumane and heartless act!!!)
The dog was sent to heaven due to its heavy wounds, and even the vet couldn't save it.
This incident caught the attention of the Hong Kong Society for
Abandoned Animals (HKSAA), the department of gaming
and fishing, and those stars who loved animals. Chow Yun Fat called those
people psycho ('bin taai'), and Vivian feels very sad about it.
Vivian concerned about the incident
Also, Mark, the person in charge at HKSAA, said that he is happy about the public being concerned about the incident. "Vivian and I decided to have a meeting immediately and to decide on how to take care of these abused dogs. Yet, because runaway dogs are under the care of the government, it has become a sensitive problem. However, we will take care of it as soon as possible."
Vivian showed off her "Haan Mui" spirit, buying clothes at stores that have sales.
The role of "Haan Mui" (Thrifty Girl) made Vivian famous, and in real life,
Vivian also knows how to save money. Yesterday Vivian went shopping
at Central with her friend. She didn't wear any makeup, wearing
all black clothes. She only shopped at the stores which had prices
in the middle range, and especially those that had sales. She bought
clothes at O.Z.O.C., and then bought a dress at Moiselle,
which has 50% off, then bought shoes at Mille's, which has the "buy 2 get one free" deal.
When the reporters asked when she would get married, Vivian smiled and said, "Sorry! I won't do an interview today." Yet, she didn't even show up on the event that was held by HKSAA (Hong Kong Society for Abandoned Animals) even though she is the ambassador of the association. Does she really want to fade out from the entertainment biz? Vivian said, "Sorry, I really don't want to do an interview. You can go ask the people at SAA about it. Sorry!" Being asked what she bought while shopping, Vivian only replied with a smile.
Vivian is walking with her friend, and she turned her face to evade the reporter.
