She Rocks ::: Wendi Deng Murdoch's right hook set to make her movie debut a hit too | Mail Online

Ya gotta love a woman who will leap to her husband's defense if ever necessary. Good goin', girl!

It was an admirable right-handed whack - a spontaneous open-handed slap delivered into the custard-pie throwers' face.

A flash of pink, a raised arm and a solid connection was all that was needed to catapult Wendi Murdoch from supportive wife to unlikely hero of the day, trending worldwide on Twitter just moments after protester Jonnie Marbles' now-infamous 'splat'.

Leaping to her husband's defense, Mrs Murdoch, 43, sent a
clear message of strength - beyond the boundaries of common assault - that the Murdoch empire will fight.

But then Mrs Murdoch, who has just produced her first movie, is used to holding her own.

The Chinese third wife of the media magnate and centre of the phone hacking scandal counts Ivanka Trump and Tony Blair as close friends - and clearly knows exactly what she needs to do to get what she wants.

In his book, From Rupert's Adventures In China, Bruce Dover says that Mrs Murdoch moved to the USA when she was 19, sponsored by a married couple, Jake and Joyce Cherry, who befriended the then Wendi Deng while on travels in China.

She went on to marry Jake Cherry, a middle-aged engineer, when she was 21 years old, before separating and heading to study business at Yale.

She holds an MBA from the prestigious university and has played key roles in her husband's business in China, including being vice-president of business development for News Corp-owned Star TV less than a year after graduating.

According to Dover, Deng was 'hardworking and eager to learn, but also ambitious and single-minded in her desire to succeed. There was no doubt she put in the long hours required to excel. She impressed everyone with her energy, good humour and wit.'

In his biography about the Murdoch dynasty, Michael Wolff says the couple are madly in love thanks to a shared passion for business.

Slam! Wendi Murdoch and the pie
