In Cantoland's savage jungle, survival is down to teamwork. 'Showfriendships' endlessly form and dissolve. Sometimes they are about art, sometimes they are about sex. But usually it's all about the money. Friday It-boy Nicholas Tse Ting-fung is writing songs for rich-kid Juno Mak, reports Apple Daily. The reason? To counter their rival Shawn Yue Man-lok, who had the cheek to position himself as the 'new Nic' when bad-boy Tse was in jail. Sunday Under-siege skinny ribs, Cecilia Cheung Pak-chi (below), decides she can't live without her tabloid stalkers. 'I forgive them,' she tells RTHK, adding their criticism of her body has inspired her to spend 'the past five days eating'. The ex-girlfriend of Nicholas Tse added: 'I'm not out of control, I am very happy.' Cecilia's first test comes the same day, as the press hound her to Dragon-i nightclub. 'Hi guys,' she smiles, slipping inside. Minutes later she reappears squirting a bottle of French perfume in the air. Whether she is sharing her cloud with reporters or merely disinfecting the great unwashed remains unclear. Monday Comedy actor Ronald Cheng Chung-kei, an ex-boyfriend of singer Miriam Yeung Chin-wah, seems finally to be getting over his 1999 incident when in the interests of safety, the rowdy star lurching drunkenly around first class, was coshed unconscious by the pilot. Three Weekly magazine reports he's hanging out with Tony Leung Chiu-wai, and that he has a lovely girlfriend to whom he should be kinder. The girlfriend is also the reporter who penned the article. Tuesday Oriental Sunday hits the streets. Its cover pictures Cecilia Cheung and screams 'Slut-Girl'. Apparently she allowed her red underwear to peep above her trousers. 'So sleazy . . . She's flirting with Westerners,' continues the mag. Oriental Sunday also interviews Nic Tse. 'You look so good,' says the normally hard-nosed tabloid. 'What's your secret?' Could it be that the magazine and Nic's record company are both owned by Emperor Group's Albert Yeung? Wednesday Enemy Canto-bucks, Juno Mak and Edwin Siu, may soon be fighting over more than fans. Edwin's so-called girlfriend, Canto-babe Jay Kwan Sum-yin, is snapped by Apple Daily sneaking out of Mak's 19th birthday party at Red Box Karaoke in Causeway Bay. Could she be about to switch sides? Thursday The biggest reality-warping alliance in the business, says Next magazine, is Nic Tse and Albert Yeung. The mag asks: once you remove Emperor's slick hype, how big a star is Nic really? He makes half the movies he promises to and he exaggerates what he gets paid. The truth is, says the mag, Nic's '$1 million' press conference was besieged by just four fans. And at his TVB charity show the fans waiting outside for him numbered exactly zero.
