Shireen Saif refuses to be a talk show host
Egyptian actress Shireen Saif Al Nasr has refused a very tempting offer she had received by one of the Arab satellite channels to be a talk show host. The actress turned down the offer despite the large and generous wage that was set.
Shireen revealed that she is currently occupied with her role in the play "The Body Guard" alongside Egyptian comedian actor Adel Imam, reported the Arab magazine, Laha. She added that she is also reading several TV drama scripts, which she will later on choose the one(s) that best appeals to her.
The actress stressed that at the time being, she is not interested in being a talk show host, and prefers to stick to acting. She added that despite the large amount of money offered to her to take the job, the issue of money does not mean much to her, and therefore does not influence her decisions.
After receiving the final divorce papers from her ex-husband Egyptian actor/singer Midhat Saleh, Shireen had announced her new engagement to a businessman, refusing to give any specific details until the two are married.
Shireen had returned to her previous husband Midhat Saleh after a divorce that only lasted two weeks, but decided that it was impossible to continue their marriage and decided to finalize their divorce.
Last June, the Shireen and Midhat had surprised everyone with their unexpected marriage. The wedding, held in a five star hotel in Cairo, took place in complete secrecy, as the party was limited to the couple's family and relatives. The marriage marked the fifth for actor-singer Midhat Saleh and the second for Saif al Naser.
After rumors started surfacing about Shireen’s pregnancy from Midhat Saleh just four months into their marriage, the couple quickly announced their divorce as per Saif Al Nasr's wish. At the time Shireen remarked that, "Midhat is a great man, and we shared many happy moments, but it's all fate and our four-month marriage must come to an end,” refusing to uncover the reason behind the divorce and denying rumors about her pregnancy.
Shireen then moved back to live with her mother in Giza, until traveling to Sohaaj, to continue working with Adel Imam, to perform the "Body Guard".
For his part, Midhat Saleh expressed his respect to Saif Al Nasr, saying that they are still friends and hold no hard feelings towards one another. "We even might work together in director Magdi Ahmed's upcoming movie 'Yawmiyat Mudares Banat' (Memoirs of Female SchoolTeacher)," Midhat said. – Albawaba.com
