As the TVB Anniversary Awards is approaching, Tavia Yeung (楊怡) and Kate Tsui (徐子珊) reportedly are battling intensely for the TV Queen title. The competition is said to be so intense that it has caused a rift between them.
At a concert in Dongguan last weekend, Tavia reportedly slashed her fee by 50 percent in order to perform on the same stage as Kate.
On the day of the concert, the emcee asked Kate to remain on stage after her performance and said that there was a mysterious guest. Tavia was then invited on stage and Kate reportedly was shocked by her appearance. As the publicity poster only reflected Louis Koo (古天樂), Steve Wong (黃家強), Andy Hui (許志安) and Sherman Chung (钟舒漫) as performers, Kate allegedly was not aware of Tavia’s appearance.
As Tavia stole her limelight on stage, Kate allegedly appeared to impatient and often swept her hair unconsciously.
An insider disclosed that Tavia had slashed her fee in order to perform on the same stage as Kate. “She (Tavia) originally quoted the same price as Kate and asked for RMB400,000. However, the organiser rejected and asked if she could agree on RMB200,000 instead. In the end, she reluctantly agreed, but the poster could not be amended in time!”
Tavia and Kate dismissed competitive relationship
Emphasising that she had a good relationship with Tavia, Kate said, “Tavia is considered my senior at work. I admire her very much and her performance in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles is very good. I am already very happy to be nominated together”.
On the other hand, Tavia also praised Kate for being a hardworking artist and wished her the best for the anniversary awards.
As there was rumour that Kate would clinch the Best Leading Actress award, the pair said that it was impossible to know the result beforehand as the award was publicly voted by viewers.
