You would think getting paid 50mil yuan (S$9.8mil) to be a guest star on a talent show is a lot of money. But if online rumours are to be believed, that amount is not enough for Cecilia Cheung.
In case you haven’t heard, retired actress Michelle Reis is making her comeback in Story of Yanxi Palace producer Yu Zheng’s new talent show, Real Actor. As if that’s not big enough news, the taitai is reportedly getting paid a whopping $9.8mil.
But according to a netizen, the 1988 Miss Hongkong is not Yu Zheng’s first choice. His original pick was allegedly Cecilia Cheung because of all the hype surrounding the actress after she gave birth to her third kid last year. What he didn’t expect was for Cecilia’s team to quote a “super high price” along with other diva demands. Talks between the parties allegedly broke down after that and Yu Zheng dropped the idea of using the Hongkong actress.
