Image 1 of 10: Sherine Abdel Wahab: the Egyptian actress came over all desperate and whiny after she gave us way TMI on Lebanese talk show, Ana wel Asal. Audiences were left pitying her after she said she'd be hotter than Haifa, if she ever lost all those marriage pounds, that is.

Elham Shahin
  Pause  
  Play  

Image 1 of 10: Elham Shahin weeps for the incapacitated dictator.

  Pause

Image 1 of 10: Haifa Wehbe tells us what's what! it wouldn't be Ramadan without some drama from Haifa and the Lebanese superstar didn't disappoint us this year.

Image 1 of 10: Ghada Abdel Razek wears too little but says too much: She broke her promise to cover up, going on Nishan's Ramadan show in a very revealing skirt. When asked about her upcoming nuptials, Ghada claimed that it was still not a done deal and she might yet break up with her fiance, Egyptian actor Mohammed Fouda. We hope hubbie-to-be was not watching!

In the Middle East, this Ramadan is proving hotter in more ways than one. If it's not one female Arab celeb giving us too much information (TMI) about her love life, it's another sharing childhood issues that her family might well prefer stayed behind closed doors. Bitching out rival stars or talking body parts shamelessly - it's all fair game and ready for spilling on Ramadan talk shows, much to the viewers' voyeuristic delight.

Hot Gossip

Airing dirty laundry - the more soiled and stained the better - seems to be the flavor of this holy month of irreverent talk shows that go where no respectable Arab TV station would go. But the flagship entertainment stations are just broadcasting the stars with scandals ready for sharing.

Dip into this sample of Ramadan 'talk' TV to get a taste of just how racy Arabic TV can get once people start munching their food.  Find out who misses Mubarak and who's re-considering their imminent marriage.

Damage control

Perhaps Arab celebs need some image management. But who's going to be play Max Clifford to these Mohamed Fayeds?

 

Please share generously your own take on these celeb confessions on Ramadan TV. Should Arab stars be seeking publicists to help them know when to kiss and not tell?
