Hong Kong celebrity couple Vivian Chow and Joe Nieh tied the knots yesterday (Jan 5) in a private wedding ceremony after two decades into relationship.
The wedding wasn’t all blessed though, with series of preluding events which are dubbed by some Hong Kong netizens as the biggest joke of 2008.
The saga began on December 7th when a tabloid published photos of Joe kissing another woman; followed by a breaking up statement from the couple on Dec 11 before the surprising U-turn on Dec 18 with the wedding announcement.
Some of the netizens reacted furiously for different reasons… some felt that they were being fooled for sympathising Vivian, some felt that Vivian is making a stupid decision, while some felt that Joe doesn’t deserve the second chance etc.
I stand on neutral on the marriage; the twist did seem ridiculous at the first place, but the couple has been in relationship for 20 years… there’s complications and emotions that most of us would not understand.
Besides, it’s their private business after all… best wishes.
