According to news, the night before yesterday, Charmaine Sheh was preparing to get back to Hong Kong from Hangzhou. However, heavy snow hit when she got to the airport, she accidentally slipped and fell on the slippery ice when she was getting out of the car. Her left elbow hit the ground first, causing a joint dislocation. She was sent to the local hospital to get a cast. When Charmaine got back to Hong Kong, she went to see a doctor again, and got another cast. Because she needs some time to recover, she is forced to withdraw from her Forensic Heroes III (FH3) participation.

Yesterday Charmaine accepted a telephone interview, she said in a weak voice: "I discovered that my leg started to feel numb, the doctor examined me and said there is some pressure on my nerves, right now both of my legs hurt a lot. My waist can't maintain a posture for too long, so last night I didn't have a very good sleep." Although there are a lot of inconvenient situations in life, fortunately Mother Sheh is in Hong Kong to look after her. Yesterday Charmaine talked to Producer Miu Siu Ching, Executives Catherine Tsang and Virigina Lok, she said: "What I am most unhappy about is that I affected Siu Ching Jeh, causing much trouble for her. The FH3 crew already started shooting in the studio, it's difficult for them to stop and wait for me now. Eventually TVB told me to take a break for recovery. This is my first time co-starring with Wayne Lai, now that I can't shoot the series, such a pity."

Producer in a headache to find a replacement

Producer Miu Siu Ching admitted that she is eager to find a good actress and frontline actress to replace Charmaine, she said: "Currently handling the situation, initially she was to start working today, now it definitely has been affected! But, Charmaine really has good artist ethics, she also said she afraid we won't know what to do. (Any replacements in mind?) Should be a frontline actress! Earlier, I watched the scenes that Wayne and Kate Tsui did, they did very well, I do hope to find a good actress." She stressed that what's most important is for Charmaine to get well soon: "Even if she forced herself to work, her joint can easily get dislocated, after getting through 6 weeks, she'll have to go in for physical therapy too."

Initially paired with Charmaine in the series, Wayne's partner got her joint dislocated and have to 'dump' the new series, he said: "Can't believe our first collaboration would fail, did I give her bad luck? (Who do you want to replace your partner?) I really don't know, it's hard to say, everyone's already scheduled for other work, I also feel the headache the Producer is feeling now. (Find someone as pretty as Charmaine?) Of course! Most important is a pretty girl, I'm a handsome guy in the series!" Also part of the series, Kate heard about Charmaine's injury, she said: "What's most important is that she gets better soon, I haven't collaborated with her before, initially I was planning to steal some tips from her, but now the opportunity is gone, such a pity."

Ken Zhu hooked up again with Kelly Lin this year

Ken Zhu Kelly Lin

Looks like Taiwanese singer-actor Ken Zhu and actress Kelly Lin have hooked up again.

Ken and Kelly ended their five-year relationship in August last year. As the year began, the couple were rumoured to have kissed and made up.

Last month, the couple reportedly showed their love for each other on microblogging site Weibo by posting photos of their own dogs. Kelly also uploaded a photo of her looking at the sea on Dec 19, while Ken updated his Weibo with a seascape photo on the 24th.

Kelly also added an entry on her blog, titled "I want to have a relationship that would last forever".

Coincidentally, Ken and Kelly both spent their Christmas in California, causing media to speculate that the couple had gotten back together. Kelly reportedly went to the States last month and had recently returned to Taiwan. At the same time, Ken returned to China from California for filming.

However, Ken's manager said that Ken "was in America to see a doctor for his spinal injuries".

Ken and Kelly met on the set of The Tokyo Trial in 2006. No one was optimistic about the couple's relationship as Ken is five years younger than Kelly.

There were frequent rumours of the pair breaking up during the five years they dated; but it was not until August last year when Kelly moved out of the apartment they shared, did their relationship end.

However, according to a close friend of Kelly's, the actress is more soft-hearted than she seemed to be. There was a high chance the two would get back together, although some friends thought that it was impossible.

Judging from the chemistry the couple had on Weibo, the couple had probably patched things up.

"My senior loves to hold hands. I couldn't even give her what she loves best, because I was going to make my debut," recalled the singer.

Wilber was once rumoured to have dated Sandrine Pinna, his co-star in Endless Love. When asked if he preferred girls of mixed ethnicity, Wilber feigned memory loss and asked "who?"

When the host replied "that one", Wilber used good friend's Jolin Tsai's relationship with New Zealand model Vivian Dawson as an excuse by saying, "No, she's (Jolin Tsai) the one who's dating a (person of) mixed blood."

Ron Ng and Linda Chung in series Men and Women Chooses Residence

Ron Ng Men and Women Chooses Residence

Yesterday morning, Ron Ng, Linda Chung and JJ Jia were shooting outdoor scenes for TVB new series Men and Women Chooses Residence. The scene was about Ron speeding on the road, and gets into a car accident, while Linda and JJ are in a taxi circling around looking for him. As there was a stunts double to do the 'car crash' scene for him, he still had to personally shoot the speeding segment: "Although I'm already pass the speeding age, I still like to drive and even learned drifting from Chin Ka Lok. Initially I was going to personally take on the car crash scene myself, but because my face won't be on camera, TVB made arrangements for a stunts double. They will be even more professional, so can relax and just do the crash."

Towards Charmaine Sheh expressing that she has intentions on heading north to develop, and spoke out about wanting a raise, Ron said anyone would want a raise: "I also hope TVB gives me a raise, add the earnings for shows, then employees will put more effort into their work. It's true that Mainland series pays good, almost 2-3 times more than what is paid in HK. Also, during the filming progress, artists don't have to take part in shows or events and can focus on the filming. Artists are also treated well, just have to suffer from being homesick. Actually it is very attractive, TVB has been helping me find Mainland jobs in the past few years, but I still have a good few years before my contract is up. When the time comes, I'll think about going out to develop."

As for Linda and JJ, they were shooting a being in the rain scene. Linda joked and said she especially have fate with rain, every time she shoots a series, there are raine scenes. Linda did all her safety measures, like wearing 4 layers of clothing and wear a rain coat when it's time to film. Even on her neck, she put on tape to block watr from going in. JJ, on the other hand, had no preparations at all, she said: "I was initially going to make ginger tea, but then I didn't have enough time. I really hope my mom can get back from Jinan (China) so she can take care of me. (Find a boyfriend to do it!) leave it, the boys now, if I don't have to take care of them, it's already good enough."

Joe Ma and Jessica Hsuan in series Special Duties Unit

Joe Ma Special Duties Unit

TVB will be starting a new series mid-January Special Duties Unit. The series is led by Joe Ma and Jessica Hsuan and will highlight the lastest investigating equipment through different cases. With the latest equipment and new clothing, how will the Special Duties Unit protect Hong Kong citizens property and life? However, to avoid triggering audience sad memories, TVB decides to not add in the actual case of the Philippines bus hostage incident.

Last year, a Hong Kong bus tour was held hostage in the Philippines, the incident was a complete failure because the police did not handle the rescue operation properly, sacrificing 8 innocent lives. The tragic event led to anger and grief from the entire Hong Kong community. In view of this, TVB had decided to start shooting a new series called Special Units that revolves around training high quality Hong Kong Special Duties Unit and this will be the series selling point. Joe Ma was once a G4 in the police force, therefore he is the best candidate to play the person in charge of the Special Duties Unit. The team under Joe includes Vincent Wong, Him Law, William Chak and Benjamin Yuen. The group of newcomers are requested to have good physical ability, otherwise it will be hard for them to handle the difficult training process required during filming. As for Jessica Hsuan, she plays the person in charge of The Criminal Investigation Unit. Jessica and Joe will have a romantic storyline with dedicated feelings.

Producer (Lam Chi Wah) was asked if it's because of the Philippines tour bus hostage incident that he decided to shoot this series? He denied: "No, decided this type of series before the incident, it is something well worth to do. The Special Duties Unit no only knows how to use guns and burst through doors, but their operations have great deployment. Need to really have brains and high EQ. Some cases are also true stories and real people." Asked if he would add in the Philippines tour bus hostage incident in as a case? Lam reveals: "We will not use audience sorrows as a selling point, but will have other hostage cases. We will also be using the latest uniforms and equipment. This time the production cost for
this series is 3 times more than an average TV series." He reveals that there will be a total of 13 episodes, broadcasting every Saturday. Each episode will be about 1 case. The plot is very compact, and is in hope to bring an alternative type of series for audience to chase.

Just as the couple was heading home, Yoga caught a reporter snapping photos of the couple secretly. The Taiwanese singer went into a rage, trying to get hold of the camera.

"This is a private matter. I'm a Taiwanese, here to make music, not to be on your tabloids," shouted Yoga.

G.E.M nervously told her beau to "calm down". She also persuaded him to let go and leave the scene. However Yoga's emotions spiraled out of control, and he continued to chase after the reporter.

The saga only ended after intervention from the police and a representative from Yoga's record company.

Lee Wei has already had experience acting as a "godfather" to positive applaud in previous series. This time he will be acting as a young gangster who enters into the criminal underworld. It's clear that he would not object to the roles of being the underworld boss as "Being in the criminal underworld has always been a man's favorite suject."

To this new role, he says, "I hope it can be a bit more realistic."

Patty Hou married to Businessman Ken Huang

Patty Hou

There is finally a date to her wedding.

Earlier this year, Taiwanese sweetheart Patty Hou announced her engagement to businessman Ken Huang. The couple was supposed to get married in September this year, but had to postpone their wedding date as Patty's grandmother and Ken's grandmother had health issues.

Donning a semi-low cut dress yesterday, Patty accepted a New Year countdown hosting gig in Taipei with veteran host Xu Nai Lin.

It was the first time Patty wore such revealing clothes, causing her to be the center of attention. In a bid to attract more attention, Xu Nai Lin let on that the Taiwanese sweetheart would marry her fiancé in April next year. The veteran then said he was joking when he realised he had said too much.

"Nai Ge (an affectionate nickname for Xu Nai Lin) guessed correctly. It will be during the spring period. The venue would be overseas and it would be a small wedding. We're only inviting a handful of family and friends," said Patty graciously.

Patty added that she did not "want to have children so fast. I've seen friends get married and have children. Then they buried themselves in their children's lives." The host said she would think about having children two years later.

The host was once rumoured to be the third party in Jay Chou's relationship with Jolin Tsai. Patty was asked if she saw Jolin's concert and if she knew anything about Jay's latest relationship.

"I didn't have time to be there, but I saw Jolin's performances on television. The concert looked spectacular. I rarely take notice of unimportant news. If he [Jay] has a new girlfriend, I'd send him my warmest regards," said Patty.
