A Kuwaiti state television news anchor has been suspended after she called a male colleague ‘handsome’ on air. according to media reports.

According to Al Arabiya English, anchor Basima Al-Shammar was hosting the live coverage of Kuwait’s municipal elections last weekend. As she was handing over to a male colleague Nawaf Al-Shiraki, she joked that he should stop adjusting his headwear on camera, as he was ‘already handsome’.

Her casual comment was interpreted as ‘flirtatious’ by some and caught the attention of a Kuwaiti Member of Parliament, who complained about it on Twitter. The journalist has defended her remark as ‘routine’ and says the furore over it has left her confused.

A video that subsequently went viral shows Nawaf Al-Shiraki adjusting his gutra or traditional headgear as he appears on air. That’s when Ms Al-Shammar says in Arabic, “No need to fix your gutra, Nawaf, you look handsome!” The word she uses is “maizyoon,” which translates into ‘cute’ or ‘handsome’ in the Kuwaiti dialect.

It’s an off-the-cuff comment that the reporter appears not to hear or respond to.

Saudi Arabia’s Arab News reports Ms Al-Shammar’s comment was considered ‘flirtatious’ by some while according to Kuwait’s Al-Qabas newspaper, MP Mohammad Al-Hayef tweeted the Gulf country’s Ministry of Information, writing that such a “slip of tongue” should not be tolerated on state television.

That led to the ministry handing out a temporary suspension to the anchor, pending an investigation into the matter.

A 36-year-old German woman who has never had sex says she has successfully auctioned her virginity online for €250,000.

Identified as Mandy, who works as a flight attendant, enlisted the help of Cinderella Escorts to sell her body online after coming across the website in a newspaper, according to Daily Mail report.

The aspiring singer’s offer has been purchased by an anonymous businessman in Munich.

Mandy said she thought her age drove up the bidding on her virginity. She has said she intends to use the proceeds of the auction to boost her career and help her family — leaving some over for charity.

Mandy, speaking exclusively to FEMAIL, said: ‘I never met the right guy. I focused on my career. It just didn’t work out sometimes.’

‘Every woman can only lose her virginity once,’ said Mandy, who will meet the successful bidder to complete the transaction next month.

The flight attendant says she still hopes to meet her dream man after the sale.

The second highest bid for Mandy’s virginity came from a lawyer at €240,000 and the third was from a football Player from Munich at €200,000.

Mandy said she had grown sick of wondering when she might finally have sex for the first time.

‘It’s like the casino,’ she said,’You have to know when to stop. I could go on for years telling myself that I only have to wait another year until I meet the right guy.

‘The years would go by and I’d only lose time. I think I’m doing the right thing.’

Asked what her parents make of her decision Mandy told FEMAIL: ‘If my parents still do not recognise me as an adult woman at 36 and respect my decisions, then this would be very disappointing.

Website founder Jan Zakobielski, who runs the business from Dortmun, Germany, previously likened a woman’s virginity to a ‘very old wine’ or a ‘luxury car.’

Zakobielski will receive 20 per cent — equating to €50,000)– of Mandy’s final price when she meets the bidder in September.
