Charmaine Sheh: Benny Chan has moved in too!

ATV have been busy recruiting artistes recently and there have been rumours that they are offering eight years worth of her TVB salary for two years work to Charmaine Sheh. Charmaine was interviewed on a radio show yesterday and she smiles that no-one has approached her and even the company has not asked her about this.

Charmaine says that because she still has a few years left on her contract with TVB, then the other companies will not approach her and she has no intentions of changing companies. As for the suggestions that ATV are even prepared to buy out her contract, Charmaine admits that money is important, but being happy at work is another question. If she suddenly changes company, then she is afraid that she will not adapt to the new environment. She has been with TVB now for many years and she has affections for them.

Also, there have been reports that Joe Ma and Benny Chan had a fight at Charmaine's home and she laughs that she has been working in Shanghai and Taiwan recently, so she does not even know if she was in Hong Kong at the time of the report. She says: "I don't think this actually happened. They are friends, so they should not fight." She sighs that there are not many reports in her favour nowadays, so she has not really taken notice of how damaging they are. Hwoever, she did meet Joe and his wife earlier in Shanghai and at the time, Joe had suggested meeting up with Benny for dinner, but then the press thought it was me who was looking for him. Talking of her living in the same building as Benny giving rise to suggestions of them living together, Charmaine says: "He saw that the Feng Shui was good in my building, so he moved in too!"

Raymond responded to the rumours that ATV are offering a huge sum for Charmaine Sheh to join them, saying that he has just been working with Charmaine in a series and he believes she will not leave for another company without careful consideration. He still has a few years in his contract with TVB, so he is totally faithful.

Forensic Heroes 2 cast update:
If you pay attention to the news scan I posted above, you will know that Frankie Lam have confirmed that he will be filming the sequel of FH2. With that said, we can safely say that the original main cast like Bobby Au, Frankie Lam, Yoyo Mung and Linda Chung will be reprising their roles with Kevin Cheng and our course our lovely Charmaine being added to the main cast.

However... Charmaine is not 100% committed to this series yet. According from what she told fans during her visit to Taiwan, she accepted the series because Bobby is in it. But, if schedule clashes... she'll leave it to Tina to arrange it. So I'm really crossing my fingers and hope that Tina will reject the other series in Dec to make way for FH2, just in case of schedule clash.

Jordan Chan & Michael Tse going bald

Hehehe... there will be a hair shaving ceremony this afternoon - Jordan, Michael and the rest of the male cast will be shaving their heads bald. Poor thing...

Charmaine's new series with Jordan & Michael have changed its title from 《陈梦吉与方唐镜》 to 铁嘴银牙. I don't know the official english title yet, so let's remain with [Chan Mong Kat] at the moment.

For the curious, the literal translation of the new title:
铁 = Iron
嘴 = Mouth
银 = Silver
牙 = Tooth

Basically the title means someone that is very eloquent and good talker.
