I am not a bad mum: Gan Lu Lu's mother
by Jocelyn Lee

Her parenting methods may be controversial and questionable, but Chinese stage mum Lei Bing Xia, 50, does not regret her actions at all.

In February 2011, Madam Lei, the mother of busty Chinese model-actress Gan Lu Lu, 27, had barged into the bathroom, filmed her daughter showering and uploaded the video online.

The video went viral in China and hogged headlines around the region.

Madam Lei, who was in town with Lu Lu and her younger daughter, aspiring starlet Gan Mao Mao, 24, for the opening of Club Lava at Chijmes last Saturday, told The New Paper in an interview before the event: "It was a worthwhile effort and I definitely did not regret doing it. If not for my actions, Lu Lu will not be able to stand out among the countless Chinese actresses out there."

No exploitation

She does not think she is exploiting her daughters or pimping them out by "selling" them as sex objects to be leered at by men.

"My daughters' bodies do not belong to them, nor to me. They belong to the public and to the fans.

Society needs us, and what we are doing is benefiting the entertainment industry," she said.

"It's a small sacrifice my daughters have to make."

Madam Lei also does not think she is a bad mother.

She said: "What other people think of me and my family is up to them. As long as what we are doing does not harm anyone around us, I don't see anything wrong with it. In fact, I feel that I am making full use of my time rather than sitting around, playing mahjong and being a retired housewife."

S$700 should suffice in remote laidback areas, NJ charbor sourcing for supplementary income is a necessity.
