Samia Gamal with husband Shepard King III
I think this is about one of the sexiest images ever!
"Among all the names and events that comprise Houston history, a young belly dancer from the Nile River Valley is probably the last person you’d figure to pop up on the timeline of the city’s past.
But she did. And it reportedly all started in 1951 at a Paris nightclub.
There, a Houston man named Sheppard King III, scion of a wealthy Dallas family that made its fortune in cotton, oil and real estate, fell in love with a tan-skinned, brown-eyed beauty named Samia Gamal. Gamal, popular along the international nightclub circuit for her belly dancing routine, was pretty well-known in Egyptian cinema.
The courtship didn’t take too long; after three hours, King proposed to Gamal.”
