The cheating scandal in Taiwan last week with singer-variety star Ah Xiang (Andy Chan) and variety hostess Cheryl Hsieh may be small potatoes to the greater Asian media but on the island it’s big news because of how ubiquitous the two are on the small screen hosting. After they were snapped kissing in the street, the latest development had Ah Xiang hosting a press conference where he admitted he didn’t properly maintain the friendship behavior but still insisted there was no cheating on his wife with Cheryl and it was merely an inappropriate kiss. Fuck, I hate it with assholes brazenly lie and think the public is so stupid as to believe him.
Him and Cheryl have been close for many years, done public events wearing couples outfits, and now this cheating scandal feels like it was inevitable rather than surprising. Cheryl took the correct route and penned a full and complete apology letter to Ah Xiang’s wife Grace for her actions and took responsibility to her fans, family, and those she hurt. TW-netizens are understandably calling Ah Xiang a douchebag on top on being a cheater, and comparing his press conference with cheating HK-star Andy Hui‘s sobbing, bowing low, snot and tears media event after he was caught cheating on wife Sammi Cheng.
