[Oriental Daily 10/09/2008]
Kevin Cheng and Niki Chow are recognized as a perfect match by the public, however it seems that their relationship is in grave danger. Rumours have it that [Dey Jing] Charmaine Sheh has turned her back on rumoured boyfriend Ron Ng to be together with Kevin, complicating the already confusing 4 side love relationship! Kevin who is currently busy filming new series was discovered buying take-out meals and rushed to Charmaine’s apartment in North Point, seizing time to meet.
Both Charmaine and Kevin were crowned as TV King and Queen in 2006 and they did not have any rumors in their previous collaborations. Last year, they portrayed as lovers in [Forensic Heroes 2] and started to exchange romantic glances with each other. However as both of them already have partners, with Charmaine passionately in love with Ron while Kevin's relationship with Niki is very strong. Therefore despite having good impression of each other, their relationship maintained as close friends. Until [FH2] was released in June, Charmaine and Kevin met more frequently due to promotional activities and private celebrations by the series crew. Both of them could not conceal their feelings anymore. Coincidentally, Niki have to stay in Mainland China for a prolonged period to film [The Book and the Sword]. Kevin and Charmaine started to date openly, even a lot of people in TVB knew about this.
Accordingly, Charmaine did not hide her relationship and revealed to her close friends that she is currently dating Kevin. It became an open secret among their friends. The 33 years old Charmaine expressed to her friends that she wishes to get married, but Ron is a playboy and could not provide her sense of security. On contrary Kevin's personality are stable and mature, therefore it's not difficult for Charmaine to see him as ideal partner. Charmaine's mood has been good lately, not only she disclosed her love relationship to her close friends, she also revealed some clues in her TVB blog for the past half year. Usually the careful Charmaine only posted pictures taken with girls, but with guys she only posted Kevin's.
Kevin and Charmaine are willing to bear the accusation of betraying their other half and continue their four-side relationship. Recently reporter discovered that Kevin who is busy filming [Burning Flame 3] did not go back to his home in Saikung to rest but instead rushed to Happy Valley to purchase Japanese take-out and drinks. It seems like he's heading to Charmaine's home to have dinner with her.
When Kevin realized that he was followed, he tried to get rid off the reporters by speeding off 120 km/h toward East District at the direction of Charmaine's home in North Point. Afterward, the reporter hurried to Charmaine's apartment building and discovered that Charmaine's seldomly used 7-seater car (Alphard) have just returned home. They suspected that Kevin have switched to her car to reach here. The reporter called Charmaine's phone and she indicates that she is currently not in Hong Kong and hurriedly hangs up.
When old flame Benny Chan was mentioned of being rejected of reconciliation, he sounded a little upset: "I never mentioned that (waiting for Charmaine), there was a verbal misunderstanding. (Do you know that Charmaine is meeting Kevin?) I don't know, you should ask the party involved!"
Yesterday the reporter attempted to contact Kevin by phone and sms but they have not received reply. Last night Oriental Daily found Kevin filming BF3 in Kowloon and he appeared to be evasive. After he completed filming, he quickly left by Myolie Wu's car. Reporter attempted to ask Kevin on his rumour with Charmaine via sms again, but have not received any feedback to date. As for Niki, her company indicates that she is filming [Snooker King] therefore they could not find her to provide any comments.
Take with a pinch of salt? How about a fistful instead? This story is so ridiculous - they don't even have proof that Kevin went to Charmaine's place? It's like that Ron's rumor all over again.
Look - I'm not saying that there are zero possibilities of Charmaine going out with her male colleagues BUT at least gives us a concrete proof rather than creating story out of thin air, painting Charmaine a bad image and misleading the public. They take us readers as idiots meh? They shot themselves in the foot because like mentioned, Charmaine is at Shanghai when these so-called rendezvous took place in her Hong Kong apartment.
Pity Charmaine, she's already on holiday away from the press but still they want to use her to sell their tabloids. Hmm... maybe it's TVB conspiracy theory to promote The Four (Ron) and Last One Standing (Kevin). Maybe they are really desperate to have her finish her holiday to come back working again - TVB pockets a significant amount of her non-series paycheck, you know?
