Syrian actor Maksim Khalil on the episode that he was guest on that brought with him a hand grenade and said that if he had it before the revolution in Syria broke out he would have used it to commit suicide so he would not witness the tragic events taking place in his country. He stated that he will keep the bomb in a safe and secret place where no one can get to it.
Egyptian actress Mai Izz El Din admitted that she lives with a big void in her life due to the lack of being involved with the right man. And Moroccan actress Maisa Moghrabi revealed that her ex-husband used to beat her, but stated that she used to fight back.

It was revealed that the budget for the program reached 1.5 to 2 million US dollars and it will be remarketed on a number of satellite channels after it airs on Dubai TV.
On his part, host Amir Kararah stated that at first he was not excited about returning to television hosting, but when the idea of the program was introduced to him he became very anxious to implement it. He said that the producing company had selected the stars to be held guest and he had not met most of them in real life. Amir noted that he avoided talking about politics with his guests due to the fact that people are sick and tired of political events taking place in the region and are in need of good entertainment.
