Reporters were barred from entering the venue where Taiwanese actress Barbie Hsu and Chinese millionaire Wang Xiaofei held their wedding dinner.
However, shortly after the dinner commenced, Barbie's good friends and wedding guests including younger sister Dee Hsu, Kevin Tsai, Aya, Christine Fan, Blackie Chen and S.H.E member Ella Chen appeared to talk to the media.
Kevin, who was the host of the wedding, said that Barbie had chosen to celebrate the occasion with only 300 friends and relatives in the wake of the Japanese natural disaster.
The Taiwanese host further revealed that as Barbie's wedding planners were from a Japanese company, and the actress initially wanted to postpone the event. However, the company insisted that the wedding proceeded.
Kevin added that Barbie would be donating all the cash gifts she received to aid the Japanese quake victims.
Hsu Donates Money from Wedding to Quake Victims
Taiwan entertainer Barbie Hsu tied the knot with mainland restaurant chain heir Wang Xiaofei on Tuesday, March 22, 2011 with a lavish wedding reception. The couple planned to donate all the money they received to victims of Japan's earthquake, Sohu.com reports.
Entertainment reporters from all over China flocked to Sanya, a tropical resort city in the southern part of the country where the wedding was held, but were blocked from the reception, which was invitation-only.
Barbie Hsu's younger sister, Dee, who is also an entertainer, told the media at the after-party that the newlyweds hoped to do their part to help earthquake and tsunami victims.
It's a Chinese tradition to present money as wedding gifts. The proceeds of Hsu and Wang's wedding, although not disclosed, were considerable, given that attendees were either celebrities or wealthy entrepreneurs.
Dee says Barbie Hsu got emotional several times during the wedding, and when celebrated host Kevin Tsai, who took the role of the ceremony's host, asked Hsu if she'd want to marry Wang, her reply was, "I do, very much."
Dee also denied rumors that Barbie Hsu was pregnant.
The wedding has attracted intensive attention, since Hsu is a popular actress, singer and TV host, while Wang is a wealthy restaurateur and the heir of the South Beauty high-end restaurant chain.
Hsu, 34, reportedly met Wang, who is five years younger, on September 29, 2010. She surprised her fans one month later by announcing she was engaged. The couple registered for marriage in Beijing on November 16.
$6 Million Wedding
Allegedly, the dreamy seaside wedding in Sanya cost over $6 million (Yuan), with over four hundred guests in attendance. Barbie and Xiao Fei reserved all of the 101 villas in the Conrad Hotel for their wedding. In addition, more guests stayed at the Hilton Hotel nearby. Allegedly, the bride and groom paid for the guests’ hotel rooms, showcasing their generous nature.
Over two hundred friends and family members were invited to the after party, which was held at a luxury five-bedroom residence. Including the swimming pool area, the place was over 3,000 square meters and cost $68,888 (Yuan) to rent per night.
Pregnancy Rumors Abound
The media were banned from taking photos at Barbie and Xiao Fei’s wedding. Due to the secretive nature of the wedding and the couple’s whirlwind marriage, the media speculated that Barbie may be pregnant. Barbie’s younger sister, Dee Xu, explained that although Barbie loved children, she will not become a mother anytime soon due to work requirements. Barbie’s bridesmaids, Pace Wu and Makiyo, who cried emotionally at the wedding, reiterated that the bride was not pregnant.
Mother-in-Law Highly Satisfied
Xiao Fei’s mother , Zhang Lan, arrived in Sanya five days before the wedding to supervise the venue arrangements. Allegedly, she requested that from March 20th onwards, the hotel should not allow guests who are not part of the wedding to stay. Rumors claimed that Xiao Fei and Barbie decided to hold their wedding in Hainan Island to advertise Xiao Fei’s real estate investment. Ms. Zhang denied such news, “My son and daughter-in-law wanted to have a seaside dream wedding. Our family is more traditional and will not deliberately invest in foreign places. We selected Sanya as the wedding location because we wanted to stimulate the economic growth here. Since only family and friends are invited to the wedding, we did not want the wedding to be full of speculative news.”
Ms. Zhang was completely satisfied with the wedding and revealed that Barbie and Xiao will not be going on an immediate honeymoon. “Their wedding will be held on March 22nd and they have to return to work the next day!”

On the 14th, Arron Yan YaLun participated in Hit FM's White Day(1) celebration; he appeared as a "Piano Prince" and played with a group of kindergarteners. The children kissed him and praised his lips as "so soft!" Recently, rumors of Fahrenheit's disbanding have been rampant; Arron excitedly and proudly revealed that Fahrenheit will be appearing as a group on the 25th in Malaysia. They will be filming a commercial together, as well as appearing at a promotional event. The four will, together, be making more than $10 million NTD. It will also be the first time Arron is appearing with the other three Fahrenheit members since releasing his solo album.
Arron will be donating $1 million NTD, along with some basic goods and materials, to Japan's disaster relief efforts. Several Japanese fans actually traveled to Taiwan to participate in his autograph concert a few days ago. One of the fans was actually from one of the Japanese districts affected by the earthquake; because she had gone to Taiwan, she escaped the disaster entirely. Some of her friends and classmates, however, weren't so lucky: they fell victim to the tsunami.(2) Out of gratefulness, the fan's mother purchased 100 copies of Arron's album.
Arron consulted a "fortune telling" expert before releasing his album; he was told to wear all red on the day of his pre-order autograph concert for good luck. The weather that day really was beautiful. Moreover, when he was on his way to the event, riding the high-speed rail, media bigwig 邱復生 Chiu FuSheng saw him, but failed to recognized him, though he praised Arron as "good-looking" and even gave him his business card. Arron was struck and overwhelmed by his good luck; he felt he owed it all to his lucky red clothes!
(1) White Day is another Valentine's Day, celebrated by a few countries in Asia, mainly Japan, Taiwan, and S. Korea. Western Valentine's Day in Asia is a bit of a role reversal: girls typically give homemade or store-bought chocolates to their crushes. It's on White Day that the boys respond with their own presents.
(2) The article doesn't really clarify whether this girl's classmates were injured by the tsunami or whether they actually died... either way, though, presumably they were in school when disaster struck, which is why her mom is "grateful."
UPDATE: Arron confirmed the deaths of some of the girl's friends on a recent LIVE episode of Yu Le Bai Fen Bai [100% Entertainment].

JJ Lin JunJie's rumors with E-cup beauty and model 陳立冷 Lillian Chen LiLeng have been circulating for nine months; are they really dating? From the very beginning, the two have been evasive. Last night, however, they were finally "caught directly" on a date to the movies. When asked about their relationship, though, Lillian immediately became quite shrewish! First, she pretended to trip and fall, conveniently throwing the contents of her plastic water bottle at the reporter. Furthermore, following her "act," Lillian opened her eyes wide and blatantly lied(1): "Oh, I'm so sorry; I tripped." This sudden and rude behavior shocked even JJ Lin; when asked why his girlfriend lost control, he could only reply dumbly, "I don't know."
Relationship Exposed; Hurriedly Closes Photo Album
Last June, Lillian posted an intimate photo of her and JJ together; underneath was the caption, "Lillian loves Wine-Cooked Shrimp!" This, however, appeared to be a hint: wine-cooked shrimp is JJ's favorite. JJ's fans wrote numerous letters expressing their unhappiness and disapproval; Lillian then hastily closed her on-line photo album to the public. Since then, they've been very low-key and secretive; a few days ago, she was recognized at an audition for a program's host's assistant. She hid in the dressing room and refused to accept an interview or any questions. JJ, however, has generously admitted to earnestly pursuing her, and has expressed the hope that everyone give them some space.
Water Thrown in the Street; JJ Lin Stunned Speechless
On the night of the 13th, reporters caught JJ and Lillian at the Vieshow Cinemas in XinYip; they went to watch Red Riding Hood. The pair first browsed for DVD's at Asia1, on the second floor; before long, labelmates By2 and other friends showed up, and they went in to the movie together. Following the show, however, it seems that the observant JJ had noticed that there were reporters in the vicinity; he, Lillian, and the others first ducked into a safe corner to come up with a plan to avoid the cameras. When the waiting reporters rushed up to interview them, the five of them immediately-- in an attempt to ward off the reporters-- whipped out their own cellphones and began snapping pictures. Their actions were fast and deliberate; obviously, they've practiced this many times.
The reporter asked when Lillian and JJ's relationship would be made public; unexpectedly, Lillian began to lose control. First, she pretended to trip and fall, throwing the contents of her water bottle at the reporter. As she threw the water, she even giggled frivolously, "Oh! Look out; I'm so sorry; I'm so sorry!" and "I accidentally tripped!" She turned around to look at JJ, laughing, as she said these lies; JJ, however, didn't smile. Instead, he looked stunned.
Apology Posted on Blog
After he regained his senses, JJ immediately apologized on behalf of Lillian: "We're so sorry; we're so sorry." When asked why his girlfriend suddenly lost control, JJ responded dumbly, "I don't know." The reporters then asked Lillian, "JJ has already apologized on your behalf; are you going to say anything yourself?" She, however, kept a cold smile on her face, and didn't respond.
JJ, though, seemed to feel guilty and a sense of responsibility about the "incident." JJ went online at about 1 AM to apologize via his WeiBo, "I'm sorry... I know that there is also some responsibility on our side; we did wrong, too... I'm sorry." JJ's music company, Ocean Butterflies, also had something to say regarding Lillian's behavior: they expressed that they were not only sorry and embarrassed, but also a bit surprised. They also apologized again on their behalf: "We will continue to educate our entertainers."
Yesterday, a reporter contacted Lillian via her cellphone; upon answering and hearing the reporter's, "May I ask, is this Lillian?", Lillian quickly said, "You've got the wrong number," and hung up. When he heard that Lillian had lost control and thrown water at a reporter, producer Wang GuanWei, one of the only ones who have worked with Lillian in a professional setting, laughed loudly, "I'm not in the least surprised; she fought with me in the past, too." He admitted that, these days, in order to avoid destroying their [Wang GuanWei and Lillian's] relationship, he avoids bringing up JJ in front of her: "It could be because she's afraid that people will think she's trying to use him (and his status)."

In the latest issue of Next Magazine, bed photos of Raymond Lam Fung and ex-girlfriend, Mavis Pan Shuangshuang, were exposed. From the camera angle, it appears that Mavis took the photos while Raymond was sleeping. The bed photos created a stir in Hong Kong and hurt Raymond’s feelings deeply. When reporters confronted Raymond about the photos, he admitted that he was previously engaged in a serious relationship with Mavis.
At the Return to the Three Kingdoms <回到三國>costume fitting yesterday, Raymond admitted that he and Mavis had dated for several months. They met on the film set of The Jade and the Pearl <翡翠明珠> last year. At the time, Raymond was quite serious about the relationship; the pair even met each other’s parents. Due to differences in their personalities and Raymond’s hectic schedule, resulting in little time spent together, the pair agreed to separate amicably. Since their break-up, they have not maintained contact.
Reflecting on his past relationship with Mavis, Raymond’s eyes brimmed with tears. He indicated that the bed photos scandal hurt him the most since entering the entertainment industry. Raymond stated that he was unaware that photographs were taken while he slept. In regards to future relationships, Raymond will let fate determine its course and will not purposely avoid them.
Since Raymond and Mavis were very discrete in handling their romance, Raymond’s former co-stars, Charlene Choi and Miriam Yeung Chin Wah, were unaware of his past relationship. On the set of The Jade and the Pearl, Raymond and Mavis maintained their distance. Regarding the surfacing of Raymond’s bed photos, Charlene felt that Raymond had trusted the wrong person, alluding that Mavis may have revealed the photos for publicity reasons.
Mavis Pan is a 24 year-old Taiwanese model and actress. Her voluptuous figure has earned her the nickname of “Little Shu Qi” in Taiwan. Mavis appeared in films, The Jade and the Pearl <翡翠明珠> and What Women Want <我知女人心>. She has appeared in numerous commercials as well.

With the devastating news of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, yesterday came more news of explosions in the nuclear power plant. Angelababy was in working in Japan at a time of the incidents and managed to safely leave the country to return back to Hong Kong yesterday afternoon. However currently holding a concert in Japan, Peter Ho cancelled his show and worried about his fans safely.
Angelababy arrived back in Hong Kong around 3pm yesterday. She wore a black outfit and dark sunglasses. She received interview from the press, she revealed: “I had been working in Japan and I got home that day and felt the ground shaking. I could not even stand up properly and was very scared. I lived on the 4th floor, my colleagues pulled me down the stairs and we ran out onto the road. I saw the overheard power cables sparkling electricity. There was a lot of people out on the road. The phone networks were down. I managed to use my 3G phone to log online and then found out there were an earthquake. Two of my colleagues accompanied me to a hotel at the end. I could not sleep that night. The television showed the tsunami reports and the quake clips in the city. It was like watching a disaster film.”
Due to the telecom networks being down, Angelababy’s manager Kim managed to get in touch with Angelababy via their Japan contact and asked Kim to contact her mother about her safety. Asked if Angelababy contacts boyfriend Xaio Ming Wong? She replied: “I have only just arrived back, not had a chance to make a call to him. I will do later. Yesterday I was eating chocolate and biscuits.”
After watching the tsunami clips, Angelababy expressed her fear: “I did not dare to take my shoes off even when sleeping and held onto my bag. I was thinking if god is making me experience this for a reason. I now appreciate life more. At the time, I was thinking whether I would die in Japan.” Asked if she now has a bad impression on Japan, she replied: “It is not the first time I experience earthquake in Japan but this time it was big and scary.” Who were you thinking about at the time? Angelababy replied: “I was thinking about my family.”
After returning home, Angeleababy has been using her Weibo account to send messages to her friends and fans. She posted messages for everyone to pray for those caught in the disasters in Japan and Yunnan. In one instance, she posted a message: “Haha. This is just a joke. I am sitting on the chair and its vibrating! The feeling is actually from a massage chair ...” One of her account followers angrily scold: “There are lives at risk here, how can you laugh and make jokes at this time!” After this comment, Angelababy removed her message.

Taiwanese actor Ethan Ruan might have been crowned the Best Actor at last year's Golden Horse Award yet he received no love from his country's Ministry of Defence.
Ethan Ruan was not considered for the male lead role of an upcoming episodic drama Battle 714, about the founding years of Taiwan by the Ministry of Defence, because he had not fulfilled his military obligations.
To prevent any negative news, the Ministry of Defence listed several criteria in casting the leading role for the show. Some of the requirements include having a good and healthy image with no relationship rumours. Also, the male lead is required to have completed his military duties.
This meant that idols such as Ethan Ruan, Mike He, Ming Dao and Joe Cheng did not make the cut.
When asked when he would be entering the army, Ethan once said through his assistant that he would do so in September this year.
Mike He replied via his management company, saying that he is currently taking classes during the weekends and would fulfill his military duties once he graduates.
Ming Dao's rep commented that Ming Dao is very busy this year, although the actor has stated that he would want to enter the army as soon as possible.
Joe Cheng had previously said that he would be entering the army sometime this year.
