Charmaine @ 巴巴閉 邊個夠我查篤撐



Special thanks to Bebe for recording the interview.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us Charmaine went to Cha Siu Yan radio talk show today and discussed about her recent rumors with Kevin Cheng and also about her personal relationships. A very entertaining and fun interview.

I translated the interview into summary points. For those who know Cantonese, do listen to the interview because Charmaine's replies are more humorous than I can put into words. Please do not repost the translation and I apologize if there is any unintentional mistake.

1. Charmaine have just returned from her longest holiday break since entering showbiz - 3 months. She was in Shanghai when she received call from her assistant regarding media pestering her about her rumors with Kevin Cheng. She then went online to read the news before responding to media. She was at Shanghai the time when Kevin allegedly went to her apartment.

2. Regarding the news of buying wool neck scarf, she was stopped outside the wool shop because of the funny way they decorated the shop - with bikinis and wools!

3. She admits that she met Kevin more frequently because she's on holiday, but mostly with a big group of friends, such as Raymond Cho and family. When asked if there is any future development with Kevin, Charmaine said she is unsure. Who knows, perhaps she will be a nun instead! Lol...

4. She is friends with Kevin as they have known each other since 7-8 years. Kevin is quiet, serious, cool but not a boring guy. However, don't expect him to be a funnyman. He is an exact opposite of Benny Chan, the latter being a joker while the former will think thoroughly before expressing his opinion.

5. As for the types of guy she likes, Charmaine said she prefers ambitious, hardworking and family-oriented guy (because she is hardworking too!). Cha Siu Yan asked if she likes handsome guy and she said everyone does. However, looks is not the most important thing. Charmaine mentioned that her idol is Tony Leung.

6. Because she is a celebrity, it's difficult for her to date. She is a bit intimidated by aggressive pursuers. There was one pursuer whom tried to ask her out through a middle person. The middle person persuaded Charmaine to go out for a dinner with him as he is very wealthy and a suitable candidate husband. He suggested going out on a yacht if she prefers privacy but Charmaine doesn't like the idea at all. She later declined the invitation via voicemail.

7. Though Charmaine admits liking money, but she will not marry for wealth. She wants a partner who can communicate and feel happy together. Plus she finds that rich families have strict habits.

8. Charmaine said she is a little troubled by the rumors but usually chose not to read about them as she finds the words they use disgusting. Plus anyone who really knows her knew that she is not coy at all. Virginia Lok have advised her to respond to this rumor as it will affect Kevin, Ron Ng and her image and they should protect their own image.

9. She did communicate with Kevin regarding the rumors and they laughed about it. Instead she feels sorry for Moses Chan, who was being shooed away by reporters as he was sitting between them during CMB ceremony last week.

10. She consider Benny Chan as her outdated rumor. She still bump into him once a while at apartment building entrance and they will say 'hi' to each other. About rumors with Ron, it started after she took a hitch on his car to Macau ferry. Back then she was busy filming [Lady Iron Chef] and doesn't want to waste parking fees, therefore she took a hitch from any colleagues. Weird enough, the tabloids did not took pics of her hitching other people's car.

11. She will retire from acting if she have kids because she thinks it's important to spend time nurturing little children. Charmaine said that she wants to get married because of children, Cha Siu Yan pointed out that Kevin also expressed the same thing. Charmaine said of course Kevin is in a hurry because he is older than her! Lol...

12. She would not mind being a single mother, but ideally she wants marriage before having kids. She prefer girls as she can dress them up and furthermore, girls stick to mum. She will not encourage her daughter to join beauty pageant or showbiz. Nor will she stop her if she wanted to join.

13. She remember an incident where she was filming at a cinema and she wanted to go to the washroom. The director escorted her there as he wanted to take a bathroom break too. When she exited the washroom, he was waiting outside. She is pleasantly surprised because it's been 10 years since she went to cinema with her date waiting outside the washroom exit. She lamented that she have not gone out dating for that long.

14. Charmaine admits that a few years back, she actually dated someone from outside the entertainment circle but they broke up after dating 1 year plus. For the 1 year plus, they never went out to dinner alone more than 5 times. When they started dating, she asked him if he is okay with his pictures being taken by reporters. He said no and hence Charmaine did everything possible to protect and shield him away from tabloids. However they still broke up as he can't stand having a non-existent girlfriend. If they make their relationship public, he will have to restrict his privacy and in turn affect his family. Therefore they broke up.

15. She admits that it's difficult to find real friends in showbiz especially girls and she was once betrayed by someone. However she did not confront her as there is no proof and she wanted to forget for the sake of their friendship. She think it's useless to confront since the other person won't give explanation anyway. She still meet this person in public events. Her best friend in the industry is Sonija. They rarely meet nowadays but they trust each other with their secrets.

16. If she ran into Niki Chow, will she say 'hi'? Charmaine said that she met Niki at TVB before and they will greet each other. She haven't met Niki since the rumors started as she was on holiday.

17. Between awards and husband, which will she pick? Charmaine picks husband, because she never had one! She takes marriage seriously and feels that patience and being accommodating is very important in a relationship. She admits that she is very accommodating to her ex-boyfriends and rarely argue with them. She said she is attentive but not gentle. She's easy to get along and often let her boyfriend make the decision. However she still have her own stands.

18. End of the interview, Cha Siu Yan recommends her to 'Hit Little People'. Charmaine wonders if that works (hitting the gossipmongers) but said she better not, just in case the tabloids took her picture!
