tīngshuō le ma ？Zhāng Wénwǔ lǎopo dà nào xiànchǎng le 。
Did you hear the news? Zhang Wenwu's wife made a big scene.
wǒ gāng zài wǎngshàng kàn dào zhè ge shìpín 。zhè huí tā liǎn kě diū dà le 。zhēnshì hǎoshì bù chūmén 。xiànzài tā xiǎng bù chūmíng dōu bùxíng 。
I just saw the video online. What a big loss of face for him. No one hears about good things, but bad news shoots around the world.
zhè shì tā huógāi 。shéi ràng tā zài wàimiàn tōuchī ？āi ！nǐ shuō ，Zhāng Wénwǔ kànqǐlái tǐng zhèngrénjūnzǐ de ，zěnme yě shì ge huāxīn dà luóbo ？
It serves him right. Who made him get a little somethin' on the side? Ai-yigh-yigh. Tell me, Zhang Wenwu looks like a real gentleman. How is it possible that he's also a lover-boy?
nánrén ma 。bùguò tā lǎopo yě gòu měng de ，lián zhè zhāo dōu yòng shang le ，zài dàtíngguǎngzhòng zhīxià ràng tā chūchǒu 。wǒ kàn tā yǐhòu shì tái bù qǐ tóu le 。duì le ，wǎngshàng de shìpín dōu hěn móhu ，tīng bùqīng tā lǎopo shuō le shénme 。nǐ zhīdào ma ？
Men...But his wife was certainly very fierce. She even used this method, making him look like a fool in front of a huge audience. I think he'll never be able to raise his head again. Oh, right, the online video was very fuzzy. I couldn't clearly hear what his wife was saying. Do you know?
