There are moments that define each one of us and change our outlook on life. Egyptian bellydancer Dina  talked about her own shocking moments when she was held guest on “Huwa wa Hiya wal Jaree’a” (Him, Her and the Daring), and boy were they like something out of a movie scene!
The dancer’s most shocking moment  was revealed as the moment she found out that her husband, Samih Al Bajoury, had been diagnosed with cancer and given only one year to live. That’s shocking even for the strongest of us.
After hearing the news, Dina admitted that she bottled up her love for Samih and devoted herself to her other love: her son; who was now going to be fatherless soon.
The heartbroken Mum admitted that her son is her top priority, and that if he ever asked her to quit dancing she would do it with a heartbeat. The sweet mamma sent her son over to the US to continue his studies, as she wanted to give him the best education there is.
Dina added that she loves Samih dearly, as he is the only Arab man not to feel intimidated by her success and strong character, and unlike her other husbands, he approved of her career path as a dancer.
Another shocking moment in Dina’s life - what we think tops the list of shockers - is when she found out, after 15 years, that her mum is still alive!
For the first 15 years of her life, Dina thought that her Mum was dead. Turns out that her parents had gotten divorced at a time when separation was considered unethical in Egypt, and had to keep it a secret from their child!
As for the greatest adventure of her life, it was becoming a belly dancer! Her father didn’t exactly approve  of his daughter’s career choice and struggled to accept it.
Now you’ll be “shocked” to know that Dina has never danced in a nightclub before becoming famous. The first time she entered one was during the filming of her movie “Shari’ Al Haram” (Al Haram Street). WOW, you live and learn!
