Well, I know it's not a cool start.. But here come the the 5 celebrities I hate most:
5- El Sobky
Who?: Movie Producer
Why?: I think he is dead guilty of ruining the public taste for arts, especially teenagers'. This guy really gives Egyptian cinema a bad name. His company is well known for the production of low comedies like El Limby, La7'met Ras, 3awdet Elnadla, and 3alaya Eltarab Beltalata. Only caring to feed his big fat purse by showering movie theatres with trash. He sure knows how to make his cheap product sell, from choosing the right timing (feasts and summer) to musical ads on all Arab satellite channels. The movie is usually accompanied with a soundtrack that is sure to stir controversy, whether for its bad language or shocking video clip. His newest way of promoting his latest movie was through having the movie star (Belly dancer, Dina) actually dance in front of downtown cinemas screening the movie!! It's amazing how far someone would go to make profits! Well, I don't care about the fortunes he makes out of all this, but what really earned him that place on my list is that the victims who pay for it are mostly children and teenagers. It's such a shame!
4- Amr Abdel Samee3
Who?: TV Host of the show 7alet 7om.. oops.. "7alet 7ewar"
Why?: Mr. Provokative hosts a TV which features many members of the government and pretends to tackle important current issues while questioning the performance of the government. Abdel Samee3 El Lamee3 in his turn pretends to exchange some Hard Talk with the guest(s). Even if his guest is a minister, he intentionally shows lack of respect, interrupting his every sentence, making silly comments, joking with bwa7'a while revealing his ugly teeth in what is supposed to be a sarcastic smile. YUK! But what are we left with? The show can go on for up to 2 and a half hours which are deadly boring (I challenge anyone to watch a whole episode), only to find out that there aren't in fact any problems. And even if there are, they are of our own making.. ungrateful citizens! Well, good job, you actually made it to my list!
3- Nervana Edrees
Who?: Ex-TV Hostess of "Al Qahira Al Youm" and "El Beet Betak"
Why?: Never in my life have I seen someone that bad on TV! Shallow, hypocritical, arrogant, provokative, misbehaved, ignorant and unable to form one correct sentence in Arabic (or any other language for sure)! Nervana is one of a kind. She should be taught to Media freshmen as the case of the worst TV hostess in history. Thanks to her brainless head, she got herself fired twice (from the Orbit Network and the Egyptian TV). Although it's a relief that I won't see her again on the screen, yet what I had suffered earlier made her earn this place on my list. I will never forget the day when she appeared on screen after being faced with her fabrication of stories by her co-host Amr Adeeb. This is hilariously dumb! Instead of doing her best to overcome this scandal, she went on accusing her colleague of gathering info mn 3al 2ahwa. She then said her historical phrase "2aloly".
2- Khaled El Gendy
Who?: I don't know what his job is. But surely he makes a living out of TV shows and private business.
Why?: Well, El Sheikh Khaled was skillful enough to take the place of Amr Khaled on my list. Unlike all the new-look religious talkers, El Gendy made it fast to the top and secured for himself a place in the public eye by making sure not to commit any of the common mistakes of his buddies, such as criticising the system, or calling for a muslim nation. He also makes sure to maintain good relations with the Muslim Brothers by promoting the things they care for most to spread in the street, like Hijab, and attacking free thinkers. El Sheikh also 'lesano taweel' on those who disagree with him. He has insulted great thinkers like Osama Anwar Okasha and Nawal El Sa'dawy, actually calling them names on live television, and describing them as crazy, without of course really discussing their views. He is also a business man, being a partner in many flourishing businesses like El Hatef El Islamy and others. Wow, what a modern man! I strongly recommend him for anyone who wants a tailored fatwa.
1- Abdalla Kamal
Who?: Editor of Rosa al Yousef
Why?: This guy's name should appear in the dictionary beside the word Hypocrite. But unlike our naive friend, Nervana, Kamal is the master of good play. This is what was meant to be the clone of Sameer Ragab, but without the jacuzzi. The new version of Ragab came with enhanced facilities: brand new lies, electric fraud, power swearing, and security air bags! This guy is leathal. Reading just one of his articles is guaranteed to cause high blood pressure. But once you start to show symptoms, try reminding yourself that it has actually become a badge of honor to get insulted in his articles. In fact, if he praised someone he will immediately earn a bad ripuation, or at least becomes questionable. I remember when I used to read Rosa every week. It was a highly respectable publication. Thanks to him, I never feel tempted to look at it. Kemo, you deserve to be number 1 on my list 3an gadara!
This was my list. Who will appear on yours?
