First Ladies

Moved on! Check TheCairoCalls

As I said before, Gamal Mubarak's engagment to Khadiga El-Gammal is generating tremendous interest over here in Egypt, and no where it's more evident than in the search terms leading to this blog.
I was recently talking with somebody who was a bit skeptical about the role any first lady would have anyways. My comeback was something like "haven't you ever been to an Egyptian house?!", at which thought his eyes widened, and he exclaimed "actually, she would be very influential...the budget would have to run through her first!".
Thank God Khadiga is an economics major!
Anyways, for a bit of history about Egyptian first ladies check this very well-researched historical roundup. A lot of very interesting facts. For example, did you know that all Egyptian first ladies since the revolution of 1952 have been half-Egyptians ? (As far as I know, Khadiga is Egyptian all over!)

Thanks Senefru for the inspiration!

Moved on!

I'll tell you what she is all over: bottle blonde, collagen-ed, and baked.

And the result is gorgeous- yes. Good for her.

going on with "conspiracy theory"...you can say that Mohamed Naguib was thrown from the office..because his wife was not half egyptian and Nasser was the one choosen for the " title" because he was the only one married to 1/2 egyptian wife... so , Saddat realising the "point" divorced his first wife to marry
Jihan Saddat in prepration for his next step...!oh my God ..this is realy hard!!!

What's "baked-high"?

I meant she tans in the sun- that's not her natural skin color.

It's not mean. It's bitchy. And it's called jealousy.

I said it once, I'll say it again: she's gorgeous.
