The Daily Squeeze: Bans In China, Teenage Pregnancy On TV, And Mail-Order Brides

  • Actress Tang Wei’s commercial for Pond’s has been banned in China, most likely because of her steamy role in Ang Lee’s movie Lust, Caution. Her seven-minute sex scene had to be cut from the movie to be shown on China’s mainland. [Reuters and Telegraph.co.uk]
  • The 16-year-old character Starr on One Life to Live had sex with her boyfriend on the show, and for about 40 episodes, One Life to Live will delve into the aftermath. “It’s not going to be glamorous at all,” said Frank Valentini, the show’s executive producer. Pregnancy never is, Frank. [Reuters]
  • A Phoenix man has started a mail-order bride website called loveme.com, and it’s doing quite well so far, with 150 engagements this year alone. “The American men have such a great reputation in these countries that it just opens the door,” said Ken Aingee, who runs the site. “The women want to meet them, they actually almost fight over you to meet you.” Oh dear. Let’s not stroke their egos too much. [KTAR.com]
