Tavia Yeung Truly Believes Sonija is Not A Marriage Wrecker

Sonija Kwok has become entangled with the news of Michael Tao's marriage breakup and has been the talk of the town. Tavia Yeung worked with them both in the series "The First Beat" and although she did not share any scenes with Sonija, she has worked with her before and she does not believe that she would become involved in other people's marriages because she is not a person who is likely to be a marriage wrecker. As for Michael's divorce, she refuses to pass comment.

When Tavia worked with Sonija, she found her to be very reserved, but friendly and sometimes they would go shopping together. Tavia finds that Sonija does not just stick to the men and seems to spend more time with other women. Maybe because she has had some bad experiences in her previous relationships, so people are misled about her. As for Tavia, she often has to perform romantic scenes with male artistes, so how does she manage to detach herself from the role afterwards? She says: "I split my work and my own feelings very clearly, so although I will really fall for my co-stars to give the best performance, I will immediately pull away after the scene and there is no problem as long as my heart is fine."

As for Sonija being under a lot of pressure at the moment, has Tavia called her to comfort her? She says she saw Sonija a few days ago, but did not ask her directly because she is already under a lot of stress from the press and she does not want to make her feel as if she has to explain it to her friends and colleagues.

Malaysian Contestant Survives 122 seconds on 'Minutes to Fame'

Hosted by Miriam Yeung and Sammy Leung, the third episode of the new series of "Minutes to Fame" continued filming earlier, with guest judge Roger Kwok. The Malaysian contestant 'Overseas Dragon' who won the second show defended his title with his acrobatics and kung fu captivating the judges so much that they forgot to strike the bell. Finally. he managed to last a massive 122 seconds before being stopped, breaking all records for a non-final show.

When they introduced Roger, Miriam announced: "This is 'My Favourite'!", but the music came on and she asked: "Was my pronunication not right?". Sammy immediately laughed: "No, 'mai fay fut' is Ron Ng!" making Miriam repeat it again in perfect English.

In the three shows hosted by Miriam so far, many of the contestants have managed to last over 60 seconds, so the prize money has been greater than vefore. However, with the greatest winner so far, she says frankly: "I know that I am too busy laughing and forget to ring the bell. Next time I will be more careful." Miriam has been laughing so hard after doing this show, she has pulled a muscle in her neck, which has swollen up, but she is yet to see a doctor. The reason is because she does not know how to explain to the doctor how the injury came about.

This show also yielded a contestant from Guangzhou called 'Japan Geisha', wearing a short kimono with super short hot pants and dancing to fast music. When Sammy saw this, he covered up Roger's eyes, but found himself staring intensely. In order to continue watching the pretty girl dancing, he even stopped Miriam and Roger from ringing the bell. Finally, Miriam managed to force the bell at 73 seconds and send the girl away, mocking Sammy saying: "Wipe the saliva off your mouth! Sammy, you are embarrassing us!"

Lily Hong Reveals her Son is a Natural Performer

Lily Hong and her three and a half year old son Lam Bo appeared at a Lindt Easter event yesterday and asked if her son has been asked to shoot any ads, she says: "There have been many offers, but I have not accepted any because I do not wish to make money out of my children. He does have a lot of talent to perform though. I bought a Madonna DVD earlier and after he watched it, he said he wanted to be Madonna. That is not bad, at least he is not doing anything bad. If he does enter showbiz in the future, I will not oppose this. Even if he does not do well at school and becomes a dustman, I still don't mind." She also indicates that she wishes for her son to have a happy childhood, so she does not make him learn all the time.

Tavia Loses out on Height to Linda at Kookai Show

Fashion label Kookai held a show to reveal its Spring/Summer Collection for 2007 earlier and invited guest models including Tavia Yeung and Linda Chung to join Lisa S and Xiong Dailin at the show. The collection consisted of many colourful floral prints and hot pants.

Wearing flat shoes, Tavia seemed very short when she was stood amid the taller models and she says: "This outfit was not suited to wearing heels and I feel my figure is fine, but I still need to improve on my lower body to increase the parts that should be fuller. I would give myself 80% because I lack the 20% in height." She was a little afraid because of the rather narrow catwalk: "I suffer a little from claustrophobia and I have an imbalance in my ears, so I can become nauseous and faint. Once when I went on a helicopter, I suffered from cramp."

Linda has had plenty of catwalk experience and even done swimwear shows before. Asked if she would do a lingerie show, she says: "If it is not too sexy, then it would be okay. Underwear is very important to women and you should save it to show the one you love." Asked how she thought her performance was, she said: "80 out of 100 - I accidentally lost my shoe before, but fortunately no-one noticed."
