Woo Tai Tai is a lonely housewife of a Chinese billionaire. Tai Tai meaning 'wife' in Chinese Mandarin is sometimes the coveted title for a woman married to wealth.
As second generation Chinese Americans, we young women obtained degrees and financial independence. However, there are still to this day many young Chinese women from Asia that subscribe to the old cultural fixation of being a housewife or a mistress as a living. They still brag about not working as if it's a status symbol. Every now and then I would meet one whom has to ask permission from her husband to hang out with her girlfriends and money to buy food and entertainment......and it's 2014! Some came from poverty and lacked the financial means for an education and wealthy men is their one way ticket out of poverty. Some lack positive role models to encourage her own independence and don't know any better. She just follows what her mother, aunts and grandmothers did for a living. Even more painful is when a strong and educated woman is told by society that she's too "masculine, tough or not wife material"! So I’ve interacted with enough of these housewives types of women in my own personal and work life that it was easy to create and develop these two characters and their daily lives. They are not much different from the women of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Miami, Atlanta, New York, New Jersey, Orange County and its television franchise.
The term - ‘The Real Housewives of Beijing’ is copyrighted and is currently explored into an option for a possible television film series. I am planning on writing more spicy and dramatic stories about Woo Tai Tai, Chloe Yang and The Real Housewives of Beijing in future book releases.
