I have to admit, I’m really pleased that Huang Wenyong and Zheng Geping are up there!

Absolutely. Zheng Geping gives his much-younger colleagues a run for their money in a suit by Ferragamo.
Greetings and salutations, fellow star gazers! This is May Seah, your Showbiz Sista, bringing you the juicy details of the upcoming new Channel 8 drama, Precious Babes.
The babes in question are Ann Kok, Eelyn Kok and Cynthia Koh, three very different women who also happen to be best friends. Oh, and there’s an actual baby too.
The tot is supposed to be the child of Cynthia and her husband, played by Alan Tern. Cynthia takes the kiddie to an audition for the casting of (the fictional show) Nanny Daddy 2, and she lands the lead role. That’s the role of lead baby, not the role of Adrian Pang.
Qi Yuwu gives new meaning to the phrase “bad hair day”
Meanwhile, Eelyn Kok plays a director, who’s chosen Qi Yuwu as her leading man. He turns out to be not very good though, so she yells at him a lot. “In real life, big stars don’t get yelled at by the director!” Yuwu protested. Neither do they get to grab the director’s boob, as Yuwu had to do in a scene where Eelyn trips and he catches her—in a somewhat inappropriate fashion. “She really enjoyed it!” said Yuwu, speaking for Eelyn, who pointedly refused comment. Haha.
The studly Zheng Geping also stars as the husband of Ann. “Working with Ann is really enjoyable because she’s such a professional,” he said. Also, “She’s a sex goddess. So there’s a lot of pressure on me and I have to be careful.” Oh my. What on earth could he possibly have meant by that? Showbiz Sista has no clue.
Geping continued, “There was a scene of her holding the baby in which the camera was behind my head and I knew my eyes couldn’t be seen, so I just stared at her, riveted by the sight of her, because she was full of womanly charm. I couldn’t take my eyes off her.” O_o
The loving couple
Just to remind us that he’s still very much a family man, Geping added, “There was a similar moment when my wife had recently given birth to our daughter, too.” Oh, indubitably.

Greetings and salutations, fellow stargazers! This is May Seah, your Showbiz Sista, bringing you a reason to keep watching MediaCorp TV Channel 8 after The Ultimatum ends its run. It’s a wonderful bromance between Zheng Geping and Christopher Lee. Male friendships are in fashion, after all.
In My Buddy, Chris plays an honest – or, if you like, simple – worker in an air-conditioner servicing company, and Geping plays his irresponsible buddy who is always getting into trouble and needing to be bailed out. Yes, it’s Jeeves and Wooster, Channel 8 style.
Watch them get into all kinds of hilarious predicaments as they uphold the all-important bro code. It also stars Aileen Tan, Carole Lin, Koh Yah Hwee, Eelyn Kok and Ng Hui.
“My role is honest to the point of being a little stupid,” Chris told Showbiz Sista. And he’s enjoying it. “If every day you play an Ah Beng, or a prince, or a rich person, it’s boring. Not every actor has the opportunity to try out different roles. And it’s fun! Even we laugh when we watch the show. Everyone had really great chemistry with everyone else.” That’s right – no great bromance would be moving without the sparks.
For Geping, it’s a chance to clown it up while Chris plays his straight man. It’s not always easy unleashing your funny side, but Geping has a secret stimulant: Beer.
“Before every scene, I have to make myself hyper. Sometimes it takes a little bit of beer. Or chocolate. I love chocolate. I can eat a whole box. Then there’s coffee. Coffee starts my engine. If that doesn’t work, the last resort will be beer! But I have to be very careful with it because if I drink too much, I’ll turn red. It’s good blood circulation!”
What happens if he has chocolate, coffee and beer all at once? “No, no, no,” Geping protested. “You will become very heaty.” All the same, Showbiz Sista thinks that for the sake of art, he ought to do a little experimenting.
You’ll also get to see Aileen Tan play a “very loud, very colourful” getai singer – the stepmother of Chris’s character. “When you look at my appearance you can tell right away that this is quite a funny lady,” Aileen told Showbiz Sista with a giggle. “But because of copyrights, I couldn’t sing more than eight words of any song. Most of the time you’ll hear me doing vocal exercises in the show rather than singing a full song!”
Aileen loves to sing, and even does cruise liner gigs once in a while. “If I had the opportunity, I would rather be a singer than an actress,” she confided. “If you are a successful singer, your voice will be there forever. People will never forget you. Like Teresa Teng and Fong Fei Fei. But I think I should have started young, at the age of 16 maybe. People won’t buy my albums now!” Well, Showbiz Sista thinks she shouldn’t speak too soon.
Catch My Buddy starting July 8, weekdays at 9pm on MediaCorp TV Channel 8.
