    I grew up with Heba and I can pretty much say that the Heba you saw on TV is the same Heba I saw throughout school.

    Say what you want, but she got the money and lost the weight. That’s Heba in a nutshell. She may get under your skin at times, but she tends to get the last laugh.

    We never said we were her new ‘BEST FRIENDS’ LOL.. sounds like someone is a little bit jealous!? no?! Heba and Ed are both cool people, you guys dont know the REAL her so why judge? Heba never told us to say anything or type anything, we are just sticking up for her, because, thats what fans do. we did meet and talk to her. she was VERY nice and she looked GREAT. and if u met heba, you wouldnt say all that to her, now would u?! u know u would be like ‘OMG.. HEBA! YOU LOOK SO AMAZING, HOW DID U DO IT?! YOU ARE SUCH AN INSPIRATION, YOU WERE MY FAVORITE BLAH BLAH BLAH!”
    LOL… so in truth, just quit with the heba drama.. season 7 started, pick someone out of that crowd to go and hate, since thats obviously what u guys do.. silly BL fans.. leave heba alone!!! seriously.. oh and vicky too.

    TO HEBA FANS: quit sticking up for Heba, if he reads these, she probably does not appriciate it anyway, you are nice for being one of the few fans she has, but she probably doesnt appriciate any fans she has. She seems to be very hormonal. I feel bad for you for even speaking up for her. She doesnt need ANY fans but since (suprisingly) she has a few, why don’t you kids (im guessing late teens by the typing) look up to anyone else on the show. Heba is not a very good rolemodel.

    Okay, so I may have voted Heba off, but I reconsider. She is an inspiration to many… keep rockin sister!

  6. birdie says:

    Well, i guess Heba isn’t getting the last laugh. By the looks of her on the laswt BL show, during the marathon, looks like she is gaining lots back. So, what was the reason she was on the show?
