Lebanese singer Madonna who was the guest on the LBC show “Sa’a Bi Qurb El Habib” (An Hour By My Love) hosted by Tony Khalifa, admitted to have been involved with two important political figures and also Lebanese singer Assi Hilani. Someone had leaked the nature of the episode, which has not been aired yet, to the public.
According to the London based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat, Madonna revealed that one of the political figures she was involved in had asked for her hand in marriage but unfortunately nothing came of it. With regards to her secret relationship with Assi she said that she will reveal all the details in the episode and viewers have to wait and watch it.
The issue of all the surreptitious news regarding the content and nature of the show, which records its episodes weeks before airing them, is an issue that has caused turmoil for the producers and presenter wondering who is the source behind the leakage. Other information regarding episodes of other singers and actors in embarrassing circumstances has also been revealed. News of Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi bursting out in tears, Tunisian singer Saber Riba’e flipping out asking to Tony to stop shooting, and dancer Amani walking off the show refusing to answer questions, were revealed to the public.
The daily held a phone interview with the presenter Tony inquiring whether the leakage was purposely done or whether it was in fact a mystery. Tony commented that they could not figure out who was behind the leakage since during the shooting of the episodes there are over a hundred and fifty people present from audience, to camera crew, and others. He added that the information made public reflects negatively in some ways loosing the element of suspense regarding the nature of the show.
Tony also said that the news is exaggerated and is twisted in most instances. With regards to the pullouts of most guests hosted on the show, he said that no one has requested to stop filming the episodes. The only thing that was changed during the filming was a change and restatements of some of the questions upon request. –Albawaba.com
