Jack Neo and Wendy Chong affair: deja vu…
There’s nothing new about celebrities cheating on their wives really. So, when news broke about Jack Neo’s affair with a 22-year-old girl, my immediate reaction was one of a sense of deja vu.
It takes two hands to clap, and both parties were guilty as each tried to profit from the relationship.
Nothing new or surprising there again.
However, what is surprising, even shocking, is this:
1. a minister has called on Singaporeans to be supportive of Jack Neo
2. There has been a news blackout about the affair in the local papers and on TV except Shin Min Daily (but extensive on Straits Times online).
The call to be supportive of Jack Neo is indeed baffling. Is it because he’s a Cultural Medallion winner, and Singapore’s foremost filmmaker?
Why are we not urged to be supportive of Wendy Chong whose future might be ruined? She also has to suffer the trauma, you know. Is it because she’s just an ordinary person?
I find the news blackout on TV and the newspapers mysterious. I’d have thought news like this is 100% headline-grabbing stuff.
Jack Neo has always strived to portray his films as wholesome, if not moralistic, urging people to do the right thing.
Did he do the right thing?
I hope that he’ll now do the right thing by his wife and his four children.
And in particular, Wendy Chong.
BTW, anyone wants Jack Neo’s DVDs?
If Jack Neo wants any ideas for his next movie I suggest “S** No Enough”. Bound to be a blockbuster hit!
