Comments from Sina Weibo:


Putin? [酷]


Probably not me.


She’ll be rich after the divorce, but she won’t have her youth anymore, so it’s more like her only possibly becoming the target of some man who lives off women.


As long as they can let go [of their inhibitions], women can do anything.


Will it be Obama?


Super xiao san?


[呵呵] Well it won’t be you.


Men rely on conquering the world to conquer women, whereas women rely on conquering men to conquer the world.


A couple helped her emigrate abroad and she causes their divorce, seducing someone else’s husband just for a green card… this kind of woman is supposed to be our role model? Then she goes and wrecks another family~~~ I really don’t understand what the men were thinking~ Or could it just be that she is good in bed? ~[懒得理你]


Everyone has their own perspective, but I like her willingness to do, to be, and to assume.


So only by becoming bad can women become rich?


An extremely scheming woman! [鄙视]


Yeah, the next target is probably Obama. The reason is because Putin has already divorced, so going after him wouldn’t allow her to show her level [abilities]. She’ll probably wreck the American First Lady’s family first, then marry Obama.


It must be acknowledged, she’s quite niu bi.


Xiao san are doomed to have bad fates… If he’s willing to abandon his ex-wife for you, he’ll be willing to abandon you for someone else.

From Sina Weibo:

刘胜军改革: One Woman – In 1987, Wendi Deng met the couple Jake [and Joyce Cherry] and in 1988, the latter helped her obtain a US visa. In 1990, 53-year-old Jake and 22-year-old Wendi Deng married, divorcing in 1992, just 7 months more than the time required for a green card. In 1996, Wendi Deng sat next to a News Corporation board member on a plane to Hong Kong, and easily got an internship at the company’s headquarters. In 1997, Deng threw red wine on Murdoch. In 1998 became Murdoch’s Beijing interpreter, and in 1998, Murdoch and Deng married, divorcing in 2013.

Wendi Deng, such a skilled woman! Accomplished getting that old man to bring up divorce, so she can sit there and receive 1 billion USD and recover her long-awaited freedom.


Compared to this, television dramas and whatever are nothing…


Murdoch is worth 11 billion USD. Deng could get 1 billion USD and up from the divorce. This case should be a required lesson for all business school MBAs. You have to hand it [to her]. [哈哈]


I wonder what else she’d be capable of in order to achieve her goals…


Deng was dumped by Murdoch, she’d rather wait until Murdoch dies. Murdoch isn’t stupid.


The woman’s road to riches!


Putin divorced, Murdoch is also divorced, could it be that Putin and Wendi Deng are an item???


Typical Chinese wisdom/intelligence! So far a Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, or Steve Jobs hasn’t been found in China, but there are plenty of Chinese people who are like Wendi Deng (not just women)…


@罗玉凤 [Sister Feng] Goddess, your role model is this. Appearances aren’t important, the most important thing for women is still your emotional quotient. What more, I think Old Murdoch doing this was for her good. With inheritance/estate taxes in the United States so high, first getting divorced will allow her to get a lot more, with the remaining to be distributed to the children. This move was too damn smart.


Opportunities must be created, women.


Don’t understand why so many people are talking about how they can’t believe in love anymore… This is nothing but a high-end upper-class version of a sugar daddy!


Two Chinese girls: Wendi Deng realized the American Dream, while Guo Meimei realized the Chinese Dream.


This could also be considered ability, there’s no need to be so bitter.


Next time it’ll be throwing Erguotou on Putin. [偷笑]


This kind of woman is too frightening.

From Sina Weibo:

丁来峰: In 1988, she emigrated abroad with the help of an American couple, two years later causing the American couple to divorce and marrying the man 31 years her senior, divorcing 7 months after obtaining a green card. In 1998, she became Murdoch’s interpreter, months later having him abandon his wife of 31 years and marry her. Today, Murdoch has file for divorce from her, inevitably at great cost. She is Wendi Deng, her every step of success built on the foundation of breaking up other people’s families. She is the encouraging legend in the history of xiao san struggles.

Wendi Deng.

Comments from Sina Weibo:


From inside to outside, one word: Ugly.


Don’t know if I should envy or spurn!


This is no ordinary xiao san


Our teacher says we can learn from her, but doesn’t recommend imitating. [嘻嘻][嘻嘻][嘻嘻]


As everyone knows, so what? Is there anyone going to punish her? Anyone going to boycott her?


Who will be her next prey? Is the First Lady nervous?


China’s contribution to the world.


The bellwether [leader] of Mainland China’s xiao san, and proud of it. What can we say about the looks of this woman? “Wretched”?


This kind of a woman cannot be understood from a normal person’s perspective, but her ability and methods are such that everyone must admire.


I really want to know just what methods she used to get these successful men to abandon their wives to marry her. By her looks, she really can’t be considered a beauty.


So people only enthusiastically discuss her legendary xiao san path, and no one pays attention to her business achievements/contributions. There is no lack of female entrepreneurs nor are there a lack of successful females who have relied on men to get on top. But someone as stupid as me, using a man is using a man, there’s no reason to wreck their family to get on top. Breaking up families one after another, this woman is smart indeed, but her character is low. Don’t say she’s Chinese, such an embarrassment.


Lao wai‘s aesthetic tastes sure are different from our fellow countrymen!


Murdoch has after so many years finally woken up. Old Murdoch, with you this old now, don’t look to marry again.


How’s Obama and his wife’s relationship right now? [偷笑]


A model for realizing one’s self-worth/potential, an example of disregarding moral behavior.

Rupert Murdoch and Wendi Deng.

If you are curious, the #1 trending hashtag is about about the College English Test (CET-4 & CET-6) examinations that will be held tomorrow across China. The hashtag is “#Band 4-6, Must Pass#“. It has 4x as many mentions on the microblogging service, but no one particularly popular post.

  • lonetrey / Dan

    … feels like my sister’s television dramas suddenly came to life and popped into reality’s existence! (yes, I know this has been happening over the course of a long period of time.)

  • CheddyZeddy

    Chinese lady marrying foreign men for fame and money. She is one ambitious lady. Dick hopping from one dick to another…………..

    • She doesn’t look first class or classy for that matter.

  • Rick in China

    RE: “who will be her next target?”

    A woman. She has garnered her fortune through banging old dudes, she’d never trust a younger guy now to not be using her in the same way – so my guess, is a woman.

    • Pickle

      I don’t think she will marry a younger man. But she will screw them. She must be thinking” after all that work, I can finally get young meat!”

      • I second that. Chinese milf on the loose.

        • Homer

          All of you are wrong – sex to a woman like her is just a tool to get wealth and power, it is not something enjoyable or for pleasure. This is why she’s repeatedly sleeping with rich powerful men (despite how old and unattractive) who can give her the money/status advancement she seeks. If she was not interested in having sex with younger handsome more vital men for pleasure in her 30s, she sure isn’t going to start now in her mid 40s. Watch – Any future sex she conducts will continue in this trend.

        • Rick in China

          I don’t know man – if she was just some random woman, she looks pretty haggardly. She’ll need to flaunt some coin!

          • mr.wiener

            Well speaking for myself I like that asian cougar thing, which as just as well. As a mature age person I’d hate to be seen chasing teenage or 20’s age tail.
            If she saw fit to pay me I guess I’d just have to swallow my pride about being sexually objectified :)

          • Asian cougars are the hottest things out there.
            I guess I’m still young enough to see them as “forbidden older women”. I dunno. Barely, I guess.

          • Rick in China

            Fair enough – that being said – I bet she’d be crazy in bed. After all those years of sucking wrinkled old cock, and releasing her frustration in court hearings :D I bet she’s an eager beaver.

          • I turn 30 in less than a month. The only thing I’ve actually worried about with getting older is the whole “not young enough for them to still be cougars” thing. Devastating.

          • Rick in China

            Don’t be worried about not being young enough to call them cougars – instead, you can call it “age appropriate sex” and be proud :D Rather, be worried that they wont be interested in you because you’re too old!

          • Too old for the cougars…oh god…almost-mid-life crisis time

          • Rick in China

            I went the other route – found a gem and married her. No more worries about that sort of thing :D Turning 32 next month.. baby in 5 months, nobody believed “RICK settled down???” but to be honest, removing that whole pussy-seeking-missile out of your routine results in a much more productive life.

          • Congratulations on the baby!

            I have a monkey. It’s like a baby-lite.

            Yeah, no, I got all of the fun-seeking out of my system already. As we supposedly say down here in Arkansas: it’s narin’ time to get myself hitched, yessiree

          • Kai

            Wait, you seriously have a monkey?

          • jin

            dont be fooled, its his cat in a monkey suit…..

          • the ace of books

            “Why are you wearing that stupid bunny suit?”

            “…Why are you wearing that stupid human suit?”

          • Yep, a bonnet macaque
            she’s fantastic, definitely doesn’t feel like a pet. Feels more like a weird looking baby

          • Rick in China

            Where’d you get it, and do you live in China? My wife always wanted a little monkey (smaller than a bonnet macaque :D) but I always explain, 1) it’d be difficult to get legally, or 2) it’d be a massive headache. She hates my cats because they shed and shit appropriately in their toilet and only in their toilet on one of our decks, but a monkey would likely dig into everything it could and rip apart or chew on anything it can. Do you keep it in a cage, and does it rip up your place? How long have you had it?

            Maybe I can get ahold of a monkey to offset her hatred for my cats. :D

          • Nah I’m back in Arkansas. Some states have them banned, some require licenses (that can be rather difficult to get) but Texas and Arkansas don’t need a license at all. I got her from a guy down in McAllen, TX.

            They definitely do require much more attention than any other pet (that I know of). I’ve never raised a child, but it seems very similar. She has to be with someone 24/7 for at least a year, you feed her baby formula every three hours, change her diaper, make sure she doesn’t get into poisonous things, etc. They can open pill bottles, child-proof things, so on, so forth. They supposedly like to eat wallpaper, for some reason, and chew up anything wooden. Eventually she’ll have a cage, when she’s mature enough, for sleeping and any time no one can babysit her. Also she’ll have some kind of little obstacle course thing outside in a cage. I don’t know how to design that, but she’s only a month and a half old, so there’s plenty of time to figure that out.

            Really, the hardest part is finding a veterinarian that is qualified to treat her. If you have the flu or anything, she can get it and it will probably kill her. They’ll get a lot of human illnesses. They also grow some nasty canines (the males especially) that you might want to have removed for safety, just in case. I know it sounds scary now, but that’s just precautionary stuff. Getting her is probably the best decision made yet haha

          • Rick in China

            Your description about how you’re taking care of your baby monkey is *exactly* my plan for my baby :D Including the obstacle course in a cage. I wont remove his/her canines though.

            I’m also on board with the ‘best decision yet’ thing! Seems like fun/hassle/fun, but a little bit exciting having a little life in your hands yeah?

          • Man, when you hold her (and I am sure it’s going to feel the same, ten-fold, when you get your baby), you feel like the most important thing in the world to her.

          • Chairman Meow

            Re: removing canines – yes, agree. Neighbor’s pet monkey bit the crap out of my sister’s neck – 2 months later and still not healed properly.

          • This is how it begins. This is how the Outbreak starts.

            PS: I have a Chairman Meow tattoo on the back of my shoulder.

          • Chairman Meow

            I love the Chairman Meow stuff – plus my cat looks just like the image and is quite the feline dictator.

          • I had a fat tabby cat when I lived in China back in the early 2000s. I thought I was clever, thought I came up with the name “Chairman Meow”…then later I found out it’s pretty common (or at least became common later). Anyway that’s why I got the tattoo…to memorize my little dictator cat from hell.

          • Chairman Meow

            It’s pretty clever – especially the re-purposed cultural revolution artwork like I borrowed for my avatar. BTW – I took my two cats to China from the US on my last expat assignment and fortunately due to my brother-in-law’s connections got them out of customs in Guangzhou airport within 30 minutes :) 3 years in Zhuhai and then back to the US none the worse for wear.

          • Les Battersby

            How so? Just curious on as a ALMOST 37 year old bachelor, do you feel it gives you a goal to work towards. Good luck with the nipper!!

          • Rick in China

            Baby = a goal to work towards, sure.. maybe the most crucial in life. But a more direct explanation as to productivity, just being ‘committed to marriage’ means I go out for drinks/poker once every 2 weeks instead of 4 times a week, come home earlier, and ultimately have much more free time doing ‘home building’ things – by default, since I’m not busy drinking myself senseless and sleeping til noon every day I can :D Bachelors *can be* way more personally productive than married men, for sure – since you’ve no ultimate responsibility other than to yourself, but now my responsibility is primarily to my still-brewing baby, and secondly to my wife. Sometimes it’s a little depressing, have to give up some *great* opportunities career wise (like business wants me to travel more, or opportunity to live in several places for long-term engagements), but when you see little 4 month old fetus kicking, rolling, and punching around in an ultrasound there’s almost a moment of clarity – this is what needs to happen, selfishness needs to end :)

          • I just kind of woke up one morning with the idea that I was tired of the bachelorism and wanted this home life type stuff. Even though the idea of it freaked me out a bit before, it was stuck in my mind then and still is. I haven’t accomplished that yet, but I already feel more productive haha

          • Les Battersby

            Fair enough, you raise some valid points. Travel and selfishness is not everything, esp. once into your 30s.

          • Dr Sun

            Wiener she’d eat you alive

          • loki

            Look around in china.. she has maybe 10 years of looking decent and then she will turn to a hunched back toothless old Chinese hag. Dude, got out while the getting was good. He can always find another young Chinese to replace the old one. After all what is the one thing China has tooooo much of? Chinese people…

          • Joseph Lopez

            Yeah but…….there’s more men than women in China

            It’s predicted that 20 million Chinese men might be bachelors in the future due to a lack of women.

            I’m sure you’re aware that it’s because of the One Child Policy and it’s the Chinese parents’ preference for boys

            With that said, we may see more interracial marriages between Chinese men and foreign women in the future.

            Think about it, China’s economy is going to be number one and women always falls for successful men

    • Pickle

      An interesting attitude these women take when they are a dime a dozen. There are much better looking women than her. This one Chinese actress also married an australian billionaire but she is way prettier. And the guy is young and not bad looking too. Wendi Deng instead like a vulture sought prey about to croak.

      • I am surprised she didn’t wait for him to die or poison him ha. She must have alternate plans or Rupert woke up to what a bitch she is. meh.. speculating.

        • filabusta

          I wish she had poisoned him.

        • loki


    • Dr X

      women of all races do that, you rarely see men hook up with rich old ladies, but women have no problem sleeping with disgusting old men as long they’re rich

    • One for all

      It’s not just Chinese women. It’s women period. The guy that can provide security (financial, physical, emotional etc) has the most pulling power.

      Women in Asia just seem to be more upfront about this than their Western sisters

      • Women has the ‘traditional’ role of being supported so they can take care of the children. Eventually they lose their actual responsibility in their princess daze and feel that they don’t have to carry their share of the relationship and selfishly decides that its their right to be treated like royalty and the husband can pay for their trips to wherever.

      • Boris

        Beg to differ. None of my childhood friends have married for anything other than serious affection. Whenever a Chinese person talks to me, however, the first question that pops into my head is ‘What does this f**ker want?’ Sorry, but I’ve become a cynic.

        • One for all

          affection = emotional security.

          • Boris

            Sure, but I was focusing more on the financial aspect. Back in Europe, both my male and female friends have often married people who could be considered material ‘losers’ in the game of life, and I’d say they have the best marriages. Oddly enough, just this week I met a German manager of a company in a Starbucks (taking his Mac out for a walk). He became furious when I told him he should be cautious about marrying his Chinese girlfriend 20 years his junior. ‘A lot of girls here like me for ME!’ he spluttered apopleptically. He could be right, but in 8 years of living here I’d say the odds on it are slim.

            Haha! He should tell the girls he’s lost his job and won’t have one for 6 months, and then proceed to ask if they could split dating costs with him. If one girl agrees, I suggest he marry her :D

        • Kai

          I suspect it has a lot to do with the environment you grow up in. If you’re surrounded with poverty but you’re also aware that you don’t have to live that way if you can find someone of means to latch onto, and you feel you can do it, you might be more tempted to do so to get “out” of that life trap that everyone else around you is in.

          If however everyone around you seems to be materially comfortable, where actual poverty isn’t really a credible threat, perhaps because of state welfare programs or because you have family to fall back on or whatever, then the material/financial may not be that big of a priority or preoccupation in your mind.

          Often people who go to the furthest extremes to achieve their goals is because their is something that they’re really afraid of, and they’ll do anything to avoid it.

          There’s gold-digging and marrying to climb up the social ladder everywhere, but I think it sticks out more in fairly impoverished places, where doing so holds the promise of substantially changing your life for the “better”. There was a Chinese netizen comment with an idiom recently about how the well-fed man doesn’t know the hunger of the starving man or something. It’s one of those things.

        • Probotector

          Not a cynic, a realist.

        • Tom rom China

          I’m a Chinese male, and I really agree as an “insider”.

      • Dr Sun

        well I we can attribute that to “patriarchy” cant we ?

        Which by the way was not created by women or for their betterment.

        • One for all

          Perhaps a world that has given into the whims of ‘special rights’ (not equal rights) for women would be better….perfect example here:

          The mentality of being attracted to the best provider is an evolutionary one, you see it everywhere in nature. But feminists like yourself believe your vaginas grant you special rights that nobody else deserves

          • Dr Sun

            oh the masculinist argument, “Ding” sorry, thank you for trying but try something more based in reality and history not just on anti-feminist rhetoric.

          • One for all

            Right……”patriarchy was not created by women or for their betterment” is such a historical and realistic argument.

            Women….*rolls eyes* (actually I don’t think you’re a woman, I think you’re one of those beta-men that have been brought up on an unhealthy diet of political correctness and feminism…..constantly reminding yourself you need to apologize for having a penis)

      • ismhmr

        I think you have to spend some time in china to know the difference… In western Countries women will at least try to convince themselves and never admit to wanting a man for money…

        A Chinese women is brought up to chase it, and will openly admit loving money. I just had a girl here in China just recently tell me that men should buy her stuff.

    • the ace of books

    As I heard so often when I explain downloading music is not legal, cheating on a test is not moral, stealing IP rights is not ethical. The answer? ” Chinese are so clever!!!

    • Germandude

      Well, let me answer like this. Your name cannot refer to the Spartans, because those were 300. Your name can also not be refering to Chinese history, because as we all know, it’s 5000 years of history and culture, AT LEAST. 7000 years sounds more legit anyways. A lot of time to develop a culture. Surely, you must be laowai. You don’t understand Chinese culture!
      If this doesn’t make sense to you, don’t worry. It makes no sense to me either. But so do most of the morale standards.

      • Claude

        Riiight, his staff “shielded” him from the goings on of that shitty rag. The owner of FAUX news had know idea they were hacking, but admitted there was a cover up. I guess you can’t expect a man with no ethics to hire staff with ethics. For those who have forgotten, his employees hacked a murdered teenagers phone.

        They tried to present himself as a doddering old codger in court (how theatrical) but was pretty spry later on. If he truly wasn’t aware they were hacking he’s still guilty by owning that trashy media empire with it’s political agenda and profit motives.

        Divorce? Why? they are a sociopath dream team. I hope she gave him HPV and he dies of throat cancer before he dies of old age. I wouldn’t feel sorry for a corrupt gazillionaire oligarch.

      fucking idiot!
      women marry rich men everywhere.
      also quite some men diggers too,i even know some white diggers in shanghai.
      fucking idiot.i bet you better be gay.

      • Women marry rich men everywhere, true, mostly ’cause they’ve suffered poverty from an early age. Though China is fucking filled with brainwashed skinny bitches who have been taught they must marry a rich man since they are little. They are taught to be useless objects people should glorify every time they see them, and not to ever learn anything useful to humanity, hence Shanghai and beijing streets filled with pollution and egocentric douchebags like yourself.

        now you say I am an idiot because I’ve said the truth. Thousands of years ago people would worship gods, deities and idols. Nowadays people worship narcissist hookers with no sense of humanity whatsoever. i.e. Kardashians/honey boo boo.

        now if you dare insult me over something so insignificant like the topic in question, you should double check why you are hanging out with “white diggers” yourself.

  • the ace of books

    So … that happened.

    Seriously, I don’t see the issue. She’s an opportunist and a businesswoman. She probably doesn’t factor “love” into “things I want to get done” – she grabs what’s available when she can. (seriously, lookit her wikipedia, her whole life’s full of this kind of stuff.) She’s an opportunist.

    And Murdoch probably knew that marrying her. It’s likely that, at 60+, the guy ain’t had no illusions of her “marrying for love”. He’s a businessman himself, so he probably recognized what was going on and decided, “sure, it’s a risk I’ll take”. And if that’s what you wanna do man, okay.

    That’s not to say I condone nor despise her for doing this, just that I wouldn’t marry her.

Most men espeically a successful and powerful (albeit smart and wise in all other areas) man would think he’s god, invincible and different from how she dealth with her previous men, and that this woman truly likes/loves him for who he is. Only when things go south he’s able to see things straight and view her objectively. By then it’s too late! History repeats itself. There will always be dumb blind men when it comes to sex and there will always be women like her that take advantage of the men’s blind spot.

          • Probotector

            Perhaps he meant that gold digging is a common practice in China, and is often viewed as a virtue, (along with many other things Chinese people do that is morally questionable), but this sort of behaviour is unwelcome in the rest of the world. Having said that, it does happen everywhere in the world, you’re correct, but in China, (maybe other parts of the world as well, I don’t know) getting what you want through any means necessary, right or wrong, is generally seen as a virtue.

            Btw, the Earth may be for everyone, but China is only for Chinese people, haven’t you heard?

          • Kai

            I think that’s a bit unfair. Ruthlessness and ethically questionable behavior is common in China, but it isn’t “generally” seen as a “virtue” by far.

            People generally don’t engage in that sort of behavior because they think it is good moral conduct, they engage in it because they feel they have to. There’s rationalizing one’s decisions and actions, but exceedingly few people rationalize it to the point of enshrining such decisions and actions as “virtue”.

          • takasar1

            “along with many other things Chinese people do that is
            morally questionable”, yeah…somehow I doubt that there exists a single race on our beloved, fair and polluted home that can take the high ground with regards to morals. Some are just better at hiding things than others.

            “Btw, the Earth may be for everyone, but China is only for
            Chinese people, haven’t you heard?” I have. I have also heard that france is for the French (economic instability has a nasty habit of proceeding a mass migration to the extremes), Britain is for the british (or make that england for the English) especially where I am currently studying, America is only for Americans (try being a muslim and walking through an airport), korea is for Koreans only (blackface anyone?) and china only exists so that the han can dominate all others (or so I’ve been told by my highly-esteemed Tujia neighbour).

            What is the point you are making? That the Chinese are human after all? With a large group of ultra-nationalist morons? Because a few weeks ago, I could have walked out of LSE and been face-to-face with a group EDL scum, go back to my dorms and watch replays of that much-celebrated idiot griffin embarrass himself on question time, whilst simultaneously reminding myself of that incident weeks ago where a black guy was beaten up by some white folk and being incessantly called ‘nigger’. All this in a country which I have a lot of respect for and enjoy studying in, imagine what its like in america, japan and Russia let alone the PRC.

    • Kai

      I think the majority in China still look down on her. I’d say there might be more people who share her goals and willingness to do certain things to achieve them in modern China compared to the West, but then there are so many reasons for it that has nothing to do with any actual uniqueness in ethnic culture and so much more to do with simple stage of socioeconomic development.

      The more the world intermingles, the more likely people will be exposed, adopt, and then proliferate values we believe to be superior or more “ethical”. The more people aspire to those values, the more we will push environments to support those values. We also have to recognize that values and environments are tied to each other, that they influence each other.

      • Dave

        A balanced, moderate response – and I accept that poor people are more desperate for money. However, many of the comments of admiration towards her have been made by middle class Chinese. Also needs to be seen in the context of a culture where what others think of your status and materialism have generally greater importance than the West.

        • Kai

          That’s because they’re newly middle class. Everything has a historical socioeconomic context. There are pitfalls making comparisons without due consideration to these factors, to the circumstances that span and for the time being reinforce these values and perceptions.

        • takasar1

          Do you know much about the history of the ‘western’ middle class? I doubt it. The middle class of post world war one western world would be almost unrecognizable today. Values change as a result of the socio-economic environment, as do people. Your ‘western’ middle class was brought about by the rise of economic and political institutions as well as death of feudalism and the increasing laisez faire attitude of governments (among other things). The Chinese ‘middle class’ came to being during a huge free-for-all where 1.4 billion people were suddenly given more freedom to enter a volatile, state-created and controlled ‘market’ where they were forced to vie with over a billion others in order to gather resources. When you struggle to put food on the table and obtain affordable housing, such loose morals and ethics are very quickly launched out the front door if they prevent you from carrying out your desires.

          As for this whole affair, all I can say is, fair play to
          her. From rags to riches in less than 30 years. I could complain but then I would have to remind myself that I will be attending an economics summer class tomorrow (all the while praying that both the PBOC and the Fed wise-up) whilst she and her daughters prepare themselves for another shopping spree.

I pick my friends for who they are, not what they have or can give me. Same as my wife. Money and her parents even looks are not very important. Not as important as her being my best friend. She is someone I look forward to be with and do things with. Like when we are old and my dick is all shriveled and I look like a old prune I will still be with my best friend.That’s love to me.

      • sean_sean21

        lol. Everyone knows about Wendi Dengs first love that split Jake and Cherry’s family. She was a gold digger and a slut from the beginning. Lets wait and see who is her next target.

  • As Wendy Deng moves onto other aspirations (as said, no not Putin, he’s already divorced, can’t break up his happy home) so too does Murdoch. As this comes on the heels of other business decisions (something something company breakup), this too signifies a lack of focus and attention of Murdoch upon China.

    Unless, of course, he does the “logical” thing and marries an even younger Chinese woman.

  • Washington Bullets

    Everyone is speculating that she did it for the money, but she was married to him for 10+ years. Do you think he loved her? do you think she loved him? Miserable situation, only to have it become world news once they split. When people find love, don’t they hope it lasts a lifetime? Did she find that Rupert’s lifetime was getting too long for her tastes?

    I’m not a huge Rupert Murdoch fan, but to have one’s private life become a public spectacle is a shame. Perhaps it is a taste of his own medicine in what his media empire does to other people?

    I feel like this thread is just going to lead to a slew of comments featuring broad generalizations about females, whether they be Chinese or not, and their possible affinity for wealthy old men.

      You are so naive of marriage laws, of course she would want to stay married to him as long as possible, the longer the marriage the bigger her payout. Read a recent article where if they stay married till he dies, her payout could be multimple times over! The mistake she made is that she took the marriage to the old fart for granted and probably did not think he would divorce her. This has been evidenced in her surprise (according to news she was caught off guard) when she was served the divorce papers.

    I think she’s gonna be after me seein as how I own my own trailor in the Sunnyview trailor park in Tallywack Alabama and can get into my neighbour’s WiFi for free. Probably my sister won’t have it as we wouldn’t have enough space left for her with all our kids and chickens…

    God, she’s hideous – like a succubus. Granted Rupert does like a manifestation of Satan himself.

    does anyone agree that Murdoch resembles a melting candle?

  • Marcus Black

    was it wendi that used murdoch or was it murdoch that used wendi. also when you have sex with a chinese woman, are you fucking her or is she fucking you….emmm *hand on chin, distant stare*

    • mr.wiener

      You are indeed fucking her, but she is also fucking you. The key to a good relationship is knowing when the fucking you are getting is worth the fucking you are getting.

    Already haggard and ugly at just age 44, she was born with a hard nose, cruel eyes, thin lips and a grim, mirthless mouth. She crushed two women’s family, mistreated her servants, waged constant fights with Murdoch using profanities on him. Away from the public eye, she is crude and uncultured …

    He may be a ruthless and evil predator but still fell into her clutches, suffered domestic discord and upheaval in his most important years… because he is a fool in judging the character of a woman who has not a single sign of kindness in her face…

    Still, he now has his revenge by throwing her out with no warning or the barest courtesy. Wendi Deng will fall from her high social circles gained solely as Murdoch’s trophy but now only a piece of broken china. As used furniture, a pariah, a gold digger and a family wrecker, all her shameless deeds as a scheming slut will be looked at in a new light by western society. Her lurid past will be grist and fodder for the media… and Murdoch’s family in the future fight over his fortune.

      I agree with your description, but she seems no different from most other Chinese women. Perhaps she’s just the most famous example.

    • Homer

      Agree, there is a Chinese saying, your face is reflected by your heart. She has an ugly heart therefore it resulted in an ugly face.

    She’s the Poster child for both visa fraud and how to be a marriage breaker and mistress, just ask Putin or Tony Blair
