TVB actress Christine Kuo was recently ordered to lose weight by the station after she was photographed with an unflattering behind and losing a beauty brand endorsement deal due to her weight gain.
As reported by Oriental Daily, the actress was dismissed as the spokesperson for The Beauty after she gained 35 pounds in a few months. She is now allegedly 68kg.
According to an insider, "Her weight began to increase in April. But since she was rumoured to be in a relationship with Aaron Kwok at the time, the company overlooked her body condition."
"But now they are worried that her weight gain would affect their business, so they decided to switch to Annie Liu for the moment. TVB has ordered her to shed off 10 pounds in a week," the insider added.
However, the actress, who has always attributed her weight gain to water retention, denied that she was dropped from the brand.
"I have never heard that the advertiser is unhappy. I've not weighed myself recently but I don't think I am that heavy."
When asked if she would try to slim down, Christine stated, "I will be filming "Tiger Cubs 2" soon, so I will definitely lose some weight even if I don't see the need to do so."
