All is forgiven? TVB to talk to Jacqueline Wong – who is back in HK – about work after Christmas

Her first day in Hong Kong after an eight-month absence has turned out fine for TVB actress Jacqueline Wong.

Her sister Scarlett turned up at Jacqueline's apartment block in Yau Tong around 9am on Saturday (Dec 14) after Jacqueline, 30 – who was caught kissing married singer Andy Hui, 52, in April – came back from the United States earlier that day.

She had fled there to escape the public backlash.

Around 11.30am, Scarlett, 37, came out of the building but did not answer queries about whether the siblings had had a tearful reunion.

But the pack of reporters camped outside the building noted that Scarlett was in a visibly upbeat mood.

During the height of the scandal, she told the media that Jacqueline knew that she had done wrong and would need time to come to terms with the backlash.

But if haters felt better by venting their anger at Scarlett too, the latter said she would stay calm and insisted that their family would ride out the storm together.

On Saturday, another reunion – in the work arena – is on the cards after top TVB executive Virginia Lok said the broadcaster would talk to Jacqueline after Christmas, reported the Asianenews portal.

Ms Lok said TVB wants the actress to spend time with her loved ones after her return to Hong Kong.

Her comments, noted pundits, are further proof that TVB has largely forgiven Jacqueline.

Initially, it had put her shows on hold, even reshooting her scenes in drama Forensic Heroes IV.

But TVB reportedly found itself short of content when the unrest in Hong Kong prevented it from releasing shows that feature the police or triads.

The police have been slammed for over-reacting to protesters, while triad members were said to be behind attacks of protesters in a train station.

TVB dealt with the content shortfall by pulling Jacqueline's drama, Finding Her Voice, out of cold storage in October.

With that show earning decent ratings, TVB, reading that as a sign of renewed public's acceptance of Jacqueline, has scheduled another of her shows, The Maid Alliance, in the upcoming Chinese New Year period.
