SINGAPORE: In an episode of the YouTube series R U Okay? actress and host Xixi Lim admitted that her mother used to be a gambler. She said that her mother wanted to become rich overnight, and when her gambling addiction worsened, she needed help from the police.
Xixi mentioned that her relatives called her cruel and cold-blooded due to her actions, but she got used to it. “I knew what was best for my mother and I did it,” she declared. She added that her mother can live a grounded and stable life when people are ‘not overly nice’ to her. Xixi said: “We are still in contact but as we don’t live together anymore, we don’t talk often.”
Xixi’s father also left them when she was young. “I learnt how to be self-reliant at a young age as I didn’t want people to think I was weak,” she admitted. Xixi knew that each and every one has their own stories to tell, and that people just need to be strong and keep moving forward.
The talk show R U Okay? is hosted by YouTubers Charlene Huang, Mayiduo, John Chua, and Ryan Tan. With celebrities as guests, they talk about discussions from a wide range of topics, particularly about career and life.
In other news, Xixi said that her mission is to speak up for plus-sized women to help people understand how their life is.
She said: “We all like to look at beautiful things on screen, and people seldom call me beautiful as I don’t fit into typical beauty standards.”
Xixi continues to advocate for inclusivity for plus-sized women, especially in movies, advertisements, and endorsements.
