The Villainous Celebrity Wife of the CEO - Chapter 79 - Endless Cycle
Chapter 79 – Endless Cycle
The female guests present were scared to death by the small frog, while Su Jishi’s head was buzzing with pain from their screams.
She really didn’t think there was anything terrible about frogs. Who science student didn’t do experiments by dissecting frogs in high school?
When she first came to study in the United States, her appetite for bullfrogs was insatiable. But Americans don’t eat this stuff. She went to several Chinese fresh food supermarkets and bought back 5 kg of it. The shopkeeper said that if he helped in skinning the frogs, the manual handling fee for every kilogram would be three US dollars. In order to save money, Su Jishi brought all the alive bullfrogs home with a small bucket.
Now she looked at the tiny frog in her hand, which curled up not as big as her fist. With a sympathetic look in her eyes, she stared at the wide eyes of the small creature and to her dismay—it didn’t add up to two or more pieces of substantial meat, not enough to even pick her teeth.
When the program was recorded, the audience pulled out their mobile phones one after another and whispered to one another outside the venue to gaze back at the highlights of the program. The most frequent word mentioned was “frog”!
As a result, before the program was finished, Su Jin’s name was tied to the frog, and she flew straight up into the sky like a rocket, rushing up to the top of the hot search list in an instant.
There are no pictures on the Internet, only words, accompanied by a string of vague words. “Su Jin in the horizontal trough is really Aw$%[email protected]#@ awesome!” It has also aroused the curiosity of the peanut gallery**.
**T/N : Peanut gallery are onlookers in online forums who are interested in the spectacle but don’t have anything knowledgeable to say about it.

The more such drama are exposed, the more it tickled people’s interests.
However, when recording variety shows, there is a confidentiality agreement. Before the show is broadcasted, audience are not allowed to disclose the specific shooting content of the show on social media.
After a while, the hot search was removed, making it more noticeable! As a result, this issue has already aroused everyone’s appetite before its broadcast. Everyone couldn’t wait to know what is the untold story between Su Jin and a frog in this issue.
However, Su Jishi, as the party concerned, did not know about these discussions at all. She had only one idea—the frog was so cute that she wanted to eat it.
The program was recorded until midnight. Su Jin’s nanny car drove out of the TV station and sped silently along the road.

With pleading eyes, she coerced Fang Xie to “eat meat” and took her to the most fashionable “bullfrog hot pot” in the city.
Dragging her luck, Xiao Xia and Ashan could also eat and drink together. They chose the famous Tianxin Hotpot Restaurant, which is open 24 hours a day. Even at 2 a.m., there are still many gluttonous diners in the restaurant, with long wooden chopsticks in their hands, eating the boiling hot pot, their forehead sweating furiously.
What greeted them first was a wall filled with photos of famous people—actors, actresses and even politicians’ faces.
To Su Jishi’s surprise, her arrival, a known popular flower in the image of her twin sister, did not cause any sensation. The attendants naturally came to greet her and led them to the second-floor private room without giving her a second look.
Su Jishi has not been treated as an “ordinary person” for a long time and she asked Fang Xie. “Why is this store frequented by so many stars?”
“This store is very famous. The investor behind this is the Cannes Film Award.”
“So this had been a place for film emperors**?”
**T/N : Film Emperors are considered the most famous stars.
“Not all of them. In fact, this’ Tianxin Hot Pot Restaurant’, formerly called’ Tianxin Film and Television Company’, was a former mess in the entertainment circle. Later, the company was bought by a large group because of bankruptcy. The shop-owner and his wife took the money and turned to open a hotpot restaurant, which turned out to be a huge profit!”
Fang Xie smacked his lips in admiration. “It’s only been a few years and now, branches are everywhere!”Tianxin Film and Television Company changed its appearance into Tianxin Hot Pot Restaurant. This magnificent turn can be called a legend in the industry. In fact, it caused several people in the entertainment circle to bawl their eyes out of jealousy.
In the complicated web of entertainment circle, there are too many small companies struggling to survive. Many of them can’t keep up, and eventually they all closed down. For a restaurant like Tianxin that was only revived from pits of bankruptcy, not one can be produced in the next 100 years.
Take Su Jin’s company for example. Before she became famous, there were only three artists in their small, flimsy company. After Su Jin became famous, this small management company became the exclusive property of Su Jin, and its operation was similar to “artist studio”.
Su Jishi touched the bullfrog leg and asked once again. “What will happen if I retire from the circle after a year? What will you do? Will you resort to making meals too? ”
“Forget about building a restaurant as a new career, the boss said he didn’t want to change his job and wanted to sign new contracts.” He picked a chopstick and vegetables and put it on Su Jishi’s plate. “When a new artist is selected, we won’t be bothering sister Su anymore.”
Su Jishi didn’t say anything about this, the entertainment circles has always been filled with new artists.
It’s a natural thing in the endless cycle of the entertainment industry.
