Sir Stanley Ho (guy in the middle), is 85 years old and is the richest man in Macau, No. 104 on the Forbes list in 2007 and sits on a net worth of 7 billion USD.

He is called the "King of Gambling" because he made most of his fortune running the monopolized gambling industry in Macau for the past 35 years. However, Ho is facing increasing competition from big foreign casinos such as The Venetian, MGM and others that are coming in to Macau to share the pie.

To protect their man's gambling empire, wife No. 3 Ina Chen (on the right) and wife No. 4 Angela Leong (floral dress on the left) have decided to put down their long-standing woes and unite to fight against the evil outsiders. Ina and Angela pooled together enough money to buy the outdated 3-starred Mondial Hotel which will undergo renovations to become a more hip and trendy place.

I once asked a friend from Hong Kong how Stanley Ho could have four wives, isn't that illegal? Apparently wives No. 2, No.3 and No. 4 are not legally married to him. Each one of them has been given a huge mansion and they hardly interact with each other. That's why this cooperation between Ina and Angela is seen as such a big deal.
