TVB Lunar New Year series Queen Divas starring Nancy Sit, Angela Tong, Joyce Tang, Evergreen Mak and Pierre Ngo premieres next Monday. In the series, Angela and Joyce play good friends who join showbiz together, but because of repeated misunderstandings, they became a bickering pair competing for everything. Eventually they both married into a wealthy family, Angela married Pierre Ngo and Joyce married his brother Evergreen Mak. The two took their competition to the next level, and started fighting for favor in the family. In the end, their mother-in-law Nancy Sit had to step in to settle them down. 

This is Angela's first series after giving birth and now that she's already a married woman, she turns away from kiss scenes, but unfortunately she wasn't able to escape from it. She laughed: "After I got married, I didn't really want to do kiss scenes. I thought I got away with it in the bed scene I had with Pierre, but to my surprise, during our wedding scene everyone shouted 'kiss him, kiss him', and I don't know how we ended up with one kiss. When that scene airs, I'm turning off the TV, so my husband can't watch it. Haha." 

Angela and Joyce can finally show her comedic skills in the this series. The ladies had several funny costumes, such as the "maiden Pi". It turns out Joyce and Angela graduated from the TVB Artistes Training class the same year and were classmates, thus they had great chemistry. Angela said: "We had many funny scenes, just like the wedding scene, Joyce played a joke on me by patting the 'bye bye' meat on my arm. We were laughing to death."

Nancy Sit hosted a 5 table dinner gathering to watch the premiere of TVB Lunar New Year series Queen Divas. Coincidentally it was also Joyce Tang's 38th birthday. Her husband Matthew Chu made a surprise visit as the special guest and surprised his wife so much, the two went for a passionate kiss. Joyce smiled and expressed: "I'm currently being called Mrs. Chu or Housewife Chu very often and I'm still not used to it." 

Joyce expressed she will let nature take its course when it comes to having children. Asked if it means she won't practice contraception? She said: "You can say that." If Joyce does get pregnant, what worries her most is keeping the secret, she feared she may tell everyone the good news before the traditional 3 months into the pregnancy. She's worried her behavior may give it away too, such as telling others to keep away from her in order to prevent colliding into her. She said: "If I'm pregnant, I believe I won't go on maternity leave until 5-6 months into the pregnancy or perhaps I can still portray a pregnant woman role."

The cast were on an open-roof bus touring the city and gave out lucky red envelopes to the citizens. When asked where they'll be celebrating the new year? Newly wed Ah Tang expressed she'll be traveling over the new year, but denied she's "hiding" from the new year. She said: "I'll be back on the 3rd day of CNY! You think I won't have to give out red envelopes?! (Give bigger ones?) Well yes, but just the envelope will be bigger!" 

As for Angela, she expressed she will be bringing her daughter with her to send new year greetings. "This morning, I was trying to teach her how to put her hands together to say happy new year, but she didn't pay attention. She was so stuck on watching TV. (Get all the money back from the red envelopes others give?) I give out a lot myself too." Also, Angela expressed her husband Chin Ka Lok watched her new series and when he saw the scene where she kissed Pierre Ngo, he appeared a little upset and playfully slapped her arm. Angela smiled sweetly: "I didn't think he would get jealous!"

TVB Lunar New Year series Queen Divas is about two popular television actresses Joyce Tang and Angela Tong who are always competing against each other. They compete from the entertainment industry to the wealthy family they both marry into. What women fear most is being compared to others, but the two first time daughter-in-laws shouldn't mind because in their husbands Matthew Chu and Chin Ka Lok's hearts, they are the queens. 

We cannot deny the Queen Divas producer had a good eye when casting Joyce and Angela to star in this series because their roles are very similar to them in real life. Just like the series, Joyce and Angela started their career together in the TVB Artistes Training Class in 1995 and coincidentally they both just became married women not long ago. The former just married her fiance Matthew Chu a month ago and the latter married Chin Ka Lok a year ago. The ladies completely satisfied the needs of the series. 

After marriage, the first experience is of course the relationship with their mother-in-laws. Fortunately, the ladies have easy to get along with mother-in-laws and there hasn't been any challenge being a daughter-in-law. Joyce said: "It is her son (Joyce's husband) that is amazing because he was the one who found an especially big house for us to live in, therefore we all have our own personal space. When I need peace and quiet, I can go up to the second level. Also my mother-in-law has her own circle of friends, she doesn't need us to accompany or accommodate her." Angela added: "Before we got married, I spent time alone with Chin Ka Lok's parents whenever he didn't have time. We don't have any problems getting along. It was only after my daughter was born, my mother came over to help us take care of the baby and it was then they saw the whinny side of me." Angela laughed loudly after she said that. 

Chan Sam Yuen v.s. Lee Siu Ho 

Come to think of it, Joyce and Angela have a pretty good marriage life. In the real world, they have already found their greatest happiness and will no longer have to strive for lead roles like they do in the series, but Joyce expressed she doesn't see it that way. "After marriage, I actually think this is the opportunity where I could really charge forward in career and make a breakthrough because if I have children in the future, I probably won't put that much effort into it, so I'm really going to take advantage of this time and hit a new breakthrough in my acting career." You cannot blame her for being so career-minded since she was already recognized for her sassy rich girl role "Leung Bing Suet" in the long running sitcom The Kindred Spirit. Joyce later had her most notable role "Chan Sam Yuen" in the Armed Reaction franchise, but the female lead went from Esther Kwan to Ada Choi and Joyce was stuck as the second lead. Although she didn't have the first leading role, she still had a breakthrough opportunity! 

But whether an artist gets popular or not, it really depends on the right timing. Angela Tong is a good example. When she first debuted she was given many third party roles because she had a sexy image. Fortunately in 2005, she was given an ugly girl role "Lee Siu Ho" in Life Made Simple, which got her very popular and that same year, she won "Best Supporting Actress" at the TVB Anniversary Awards. Angela got so popular, she made it on the headlines on the magazines all over Hong Kong and her wealthy family background surfaced as well. Unfortunately her popularity didn't last long. Angela said: "I agree women shouldn't give up on their career after marriage. My personality is not suitable to be a full-time mother. Haha, I say that but if my daughter ever need me one day, I'll think differently!" 

Two-People World v.s. 24 Hour Mother 

Angela shared her experience as a mother, she said: "I don't know if its because of hormonal changes, but after becoming a mother, I am very sensible. When my daughter first learned to turn herself, I cried; Every family themed movie I watched with Chin Ka Lok, I cried. In the past whenever I have interviews, I would prepare several different outfits, so the media could take pictures, but now I just call Toby (Leung) and borrow clothing from her because I don't want to buy new clothing. I don't have place to put them since my daughter has hogged all the space in my house." 

Its a blessing to be a mother and its not like Joyce hasn't considered this, but at this stage in life, she enjoys life with just two people. Joyce met her husband at a wine tasting party and then they started dating. She expressed what she admires most about her husband is he's attentive. "In front of others, he's very cool, but in front of me, he's like a big kid. The most important is he really understands me. He knows exactly what I need at the right time. As for babies, we actually really enjoy a free lifestyle, but we're considering it." A newly wed wife meets a new mother, what a sweet combination!
