Making himself unpopular? Wael Kfoury describes Elissa as "a big blown up balloon"
Despite being great mates on the X Factor judging panel, Lebanese superstar Elissa may not be too flattered by what her pal Wael Kfoury has described her as earlier this week...
"Elissa is a kind hearted woman that has nothing to hide, and is like a blown up balloon when she is angry that makes a loud noise when popped, but returns to her calm self moments later", Wael said.
Whilst undoubtedly trying to be nice, we here at Al Bawaba can't help but think that no woman will take kindly to being described as a balloon!
Maybe she'll know what he's trying to say - Wael says that Elissa knows him extremely well and even knows what he'll say to X Factor contestants before he's opened his mouth!
Perhaps trying to sweeten her up a bit, according to Sayidaty.net, Wael added that Elissa's honesty and spontaneous nature are rare characteristics found in a celebrity, and it is impossible not to respect her when you get to know her.
This might even fuel rumours of an offscreen romance - just watching the X Factor, you can't help but notice the flirtations that pass between these two foxy judges...
