Ruan Tian was never the type to surf on the internet in her free time, especially on a day like today when she was so excited waiting for Monday to come so that she could finally get the divorce certificate from Shen Shu. Currently, she was busy looking through all of her drawers and trying to find her various pieces of documentation.
Eventually, Ruan Tian found her ID card, household registration, marriage certificate, and finally felt fully prepared.
After getting everything together, she sat cross-legged on her bed and looked down at her marriage certificate, where there was a picture of her and Shen Shu, and her expression turned a bit mournful.
Silently she thought to herself: En, the face was a good face, but she might as well have married a dog.
By Sunday night, ‘The Replacement Princess’ had already reached the mid-point of its run.
The princess played by Ruan Tian began to act out in various crazy ways, and the audience all felt their teeth itch with hatred.
Certain fans who found themselves too immersed in the drama would inevitably appear from time to time to scold people who played roles like this, so Ruan Tian was prepared.
But what surprised her was that many other fans would spontaneously appear to defend her from those haters, and even sent out many long messages to encourage her.
“My hands and feet feel cold these days and I’m panicking, just what did our TianBaby do wrong? She is just a little actress and all she can do is act, so why do you people come to bully her?”
“TianBaby is the softest existence in our entertainment circle. Please don’t commit cyber violence against her.”
“TianBaby don’t look at the bad reviews, they’re just people who have no heart.”
“I advise all the haters to go elsewhere. The more you try to keep her down, the more explosively our TianBaby comes back. Hee Hee Hee.”
The various actresses in the drama were all struggling to compete in this strange environment but meanwhile, the male lead, Xu Jing, was consistently popular. From old to young, all the audiences loved him, and he was quickly rocketing to the top of the searches everywhere, further cementing his status as an A-List star.
For her part, Ruan Tian had no real feelings about her little swell of popularity. Just, when the film crew suddenly sent her a big red envelope, she felt that the show was probably doing pretty good.
On Sunday afternoon, Ruan Tian had an interview to do at her company.
The weather wasn’t very good. The sky was overcast and cloudy, and rain was coming down without cease. Just looking at the grey carpet covering the sky was enough to make a person want to give up and sleep at home.
Jiang Lili drove over in her Maserati to pick Ruan Tian up excitedly. The past few days, her phone has been blowing up with invitations from various shows and producers. Although they were mostly all small productions and supporting roles, it was still enough to make her feel very happy.
After Ruan Tian got in the car, she noticed that Jiang Lili had bought a new bag.
She really didn’t understand this agent of hers. Why did Jiang Lili come out to be an agent when she was so rich? Was being a happy rich second generation not fulfilling enough for her?
When the two people finally arrived at the company, the reporter who had set up the interview was already waiting for them in the lounge.
Although Ruan Tian herself wasn’t really popular enough to justify an interview, she was related to enough current hot topics to draw some interest. For instance, her relationship with the boss of Huanshi Entertainment, or the convoluted relationship between her and the A-List actor Xu Jing.
So when Ruan Tian heard Shen Shu’s name from the reporter, she couldn’t help but laugh helplessly and deflect the question.
Facing her evasion, the reporter had no choice but to retreat and switch topics, “Ms. Ruan, did you enjoy working with Mr. Xu Jing in your most recent drama?”
Actually, the reporter had long heard from various insiders that Ruan Tian and Xu Jing didn’t get along well at all, and her exchanges with the other actors on the crew should be close to zero. On top of that, Xu Jing seemed to be very dissatisfied with her for trying to bundle herself with him and create hype, so the two were like water and fire.
The outline of the interview had been prepared with those thoughts in mind, so now the reporter just wanted to dig out a scoop using that premise.
However, the corners of Ruan Tian’s eyes curled into a smile, and she looked a bit crafty as she said, “My relationship with Teacher Xu is okay. He took me home after recording the other day, hehehe.”
The reporter didn’t know what to say to this.
Wasn’t she supposed to say they were fighting all the time?
The reporter suddenly felt he had wasted his time.
After the interview, Ruan Tian glanced at her watch and saw that it was still early so she turned around and started walking, planning to go to Jiang Lili’s office and find her. After all, the two had agreed to go out and eat hot pot together after she was done with the interview.
She had been walking with her head down so she very nearly ran head-first into the clear glass door, only barely catching herself at the last second.
After pushing the door open, she immediately spotted Jiang Lili standing by the window but then, to her horror, she saw there was also a man in a black suit who had a group of professional-looking followers in the room as well!
