9 Sep – Zanilia Zhao and her studio recently expressed frustration after it was discovered that the reality show, "Chinese Restaurant 4" deliberately depicted her in a bad light throughout her appearance on the show.
As reported on ET Today, the situation sparked recently after fans of the actress, who were unhappy by how the show portrayed Zanilia, dug deep and discovered some details from a photo that one of the producers shared on their Weibo account.
The photo showed a white board at a meeting, where someone had written that Zanilia's persona on the show should be represented as "anxious" and "worried".
Although the show had since apologised for the issue, saying that it was all a misunderstanding and that they have apologised to the actress, Zanilia's camp recently released its own statement, saying that it has hurt Zanilia's image as well as the feelings of her fans who have always supported her - and that the whole issue was thoroughly disappointing.
They also demanded that the production team investigate the mishap and deal with it properly, and reject the way the show portrayed Zanilia. The studio also stressed that they will definitely stop all coordination with the team of "Chinese Restaurant" if this continues.
A for the actress herself, Zanilia expressed, "I am not here to film a reality show. I am here to open a restaurant with everyone."
