Taiwanese artiste Godfrey Gao appeared bemused when he cleared the air on his alleged May-December relationship with Jolin Tsai and said that the rumours were “rather hilarious”. The 26-year-old artiste was recently in town to participate in a Channel 8 variety programme, 3 Plus 1 and appeared to be troubled by his alleged relationship with Jolin.

Real becomes reel: Joanne Peh’s role in new TV show dates an ang moh

By spcnet.tv on December 31st, 2009 | Singaporean Entertainment

Art imitating life-or the other way round-pretty much sums up Joanne Peh’s newest role in the forthcoming Ch 8 telemovie.

Slated to air in Jan 2010, the local starlet plays a bodyguard whose love interest is an American.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of months, you would know by now that the actress is dating fellow actor Bobby Tonelli, who is based here and hails from Las Vegas.

The two were co-stars in the blockbuster drama Little Nyonya back in 2008, but their respective characters barely crossed paths in the plot. Incidentally, Bobby played the love interest of Jeanette Aw’s Yueniang, whom she later married towards the end of the hit serial.

Both parties initially dodged rumours of them dating, and it was only after being photographed together with a group of friends (see pic, Bobby is on the extreme right)…

According to Taiwanese news reports, 31-year-old Patty Hou is said to be engaged to a 35-year-old American-born Chinese businessman, Ken, who earns an annual salary of S$650,000. Described as a ‘Sunshine boy’ by close friends, said beau has been studying in Australia and enjoys surfing.

The pair have been said to be dating for the past six months, and have been very careful in keeping this relationship under wraps. Patty’s management company is reportedly angry with the Taiwanese host for keeping them out of the loop as her previous romance with Jay was also kept a secret.

Two days ago, Patty appeared unfazed by the ongoing rumours and revealed her thoughts of a shotgun marriage. “Actually when I look at the shotgun marriages of other people, I feel that they all look very blissful and happy. I do not need to know a person for as long…

By spcnet.tv on December 31st, 2009 | Hong Kong Entertainment

Hong Kong actor Shawn Yue was recently accused of being “arrogant” by the Hong Kong media. He was said to have angered his teacher, Alan Tam, who has decided to groom his junior from the same management company, Gregory Wang, instead.

Emme and Gregory were recording a Valentine’s Day programme called True Love a few days ago. When the reporter ventured onto the topic of Shawn’s conceited attitude, the 28-year-old singer-actress said, “Everyone has different sides. Please try not to ask me on this. After all, this is a problem between him and the company. It is not convenient for outsiders to comment.”

Further reiterating that they are “merely friends”, Emme gave her two-cents when the reporter asked her about Shawn’s conceitedness, “[He is] like a very normal man. Everyone has different characters – the media just tends to exaggerate on certain areas.”

“I am merely analyzing…

Sylvia Ratonel: I want to go further than this

By spcnet.tv on December 30th, 2009 | Chinese Entertainment

As one of the final two Singapore Idol Season Three finalists, Sylvia Ratonel sang her heart out last night at the Singapore Indoor Stadium to a crowd of 8,000 people. She opened the night’s performance with a bang and delivered ‘Mercy’ with a groovy sexy punch before crooning to Coldplay’s ‘Yellow’, giving the mellow tune a little twist of its own – but nothing could beat her final performance – a heartfelt and emotional rendition of ‘Touched By An Angel’, composed and written by Ken Lim.

Despite losing out to Sezairi Sezali, Sylvia stood tall and proud, appearing every bit a winner in her own right. With no regrets, she earnestly shared that she is “satisfied with what she has accomplished thus far.”

“I did my best and gave it my all. Singapore has voted and I respect that. I am happy to have come this far….

Singapore Idol winner Sezairi Sezali: “It’s a dream come true”

By spcnet.tv on December 30th, 2009 | Singaporean Entertainment

Sezairi Sezali can be quite the cynic. Since speaking to the 22-year-old from the start of his Singapore Idol path, the man has always kept his fingers crossed and “expected the worst” to happen. Now that he’s won the title last night at the Grand Finale at the Indoor Stadium against competitor Sylvia Ratonel, perhaps it’s time he’s gonna turn a little more optimistic in his outlook?

The answer from the newest Singapore Idol is a resounding yes. “The Idol journey for me has been in stages. At the start, you feel that people hate you, and I start to doubt myself. Then I get [mentally] stronger and think, ‘Yes, I can do this.’ And then you’re at this stage where I think that it doesn’t matter if I win or lose. I’m [living] in the now. I’d like to do this for myself. So it’s like…

By spcnet.tv on December 30th, 2009 | Chinese Entertainment

If you’ve seen episodes of RenovAid, you’ll know that the reality show, which combines charity and home renovation for the less fortunate, featured a family of six which lived in flat crammed with items.

When we caught up with Michelle Chia at the filming, the host described in a serious tone the entire home to be “just stuffed with stuff.

“Like things that you’ve had for years but just left aside. It’s packed from the floor to the ceiling. And none of the wardrobes can be opened because the doors are all blocked by boxes and stacks of clothes or whatever, we don’t even know yet. We only just cleared the corridor, and now we’re moving into the living room next.”

Michelle shared that during her visits to the house, she “felt very uncomfortable and a lot of discomfort. It was just not good energy. We needed…
