Yuan Hong, who’s currently filming Princess Jieyou (解忧公主), had a surprise visit from Cindy last week. Cindy was actually there to see his costar Zhang Xinyi but ended up playing with his hair instead. :P
I talked with Ms. Cindy, the new hair stylist, about which stylist has the best braiding techniques.

“Spash 中国星跳跃,” one of the two celebrity diving shows airing this week, will also feature Charlene Choi, who was going to do a synchronised dive with fellow Twins member Gillian Chung before Gillian had to pull out because of a heart condition, philanthropist Chen Guangbiao, actress Eva Huang Shengyi, actor Gao Hu, actress Liu Xinyu (BuBuJingXin), actor ShiXiaolong, singer Chae Yeon, singer Xuan Zi, etc.

The divers aren’t the only ones tying the knot after the Olympics. (more…)
A group of Chinese athletes got together to sing for the One Year remembrance of the devastating earthquake that occurred during 5.12. The singing is quite bad, but I suppose that makes it more admirable that these athletes would display their lack of vocal skills for Sichuan.
Watch the making of MV here and the actual MV here. The CD +VCD of the single will be sold for 12 yuan, all profits going to the devastated area. The MV was shown in a ceremony where it was screened on that huge LED screen from the Olympics.
