Let's get real, we can't expect all celebrities to become BFFs just because they work in the same field.

If anything, the competitive nature of their careers can often lead to high tensions between them. 

Just ask Lebanese star Carole Samaha, who recently opened up about her spat with fellow Leb singer Elissa.

While many rumors surrounded the real reason behind their feud, Carole insisted that they fell out over "something pointless," citing "rising tensions between us while we were on the judging panel of the X Factor Arabia."

In the interview, Carole was asked for her opinion on Egyptian diva Sherine Abdel Wahab's recent low blow against Egyptian superstar Amr Diab

The 44-year-old singer admitted that "I'm against anyone speak ill of others, especially when they're someone with a long, successful and international career like Diab's."

Indirectly, she advised Sherine to stick at what she does best: singing. 

"I only like Sherine when she sings, and I wish she would just stick to that and that alone," Carole said.
