Tycoons Extend Rivalry to Chinese Television – Keith Bradsher

27Trum.184 From The New York Times:

When two real estate tycoons make preparations to start rival television shows within weeks of fighting each other in court, it has all the looks of an ego-driven catfight.

That perception is only reinforced when the tycoons are Donald J. Trump, New York’s brashest developer, and Vincent Lo, a Hong Kong developer who has made a fortune in Shanghai with a flashy formula worthy of Mr. Trump.

But both developers are playing down their rivalry as they prepare to introduce similar-sounding reality shows on Chinese television and as they continue litigating a $1 billion dispute over the proceeds from a once-close property partnership on Manhattan’s West Side.
