Presenter’s cleavage stirs reactions in Turkey


By Manolis Kostidis – Istanbul

The neckline of a female TV presenter during a show became the number one story in Turkey! Godze Cansu presented Sunday the first talent show of ATV network for singers called “Veliant”. She managed to impress everyone with her dress and primary her cleavage.

Many members of the Justice and Development Party were disturbed by her choice of clothes. Particularly the reaction of AKP vice-President Husein Celik, who is close to Erdogan, may be a problem for Cansu’s career.

Celik stated “these dresses are excessive. The presenter of yesterday’s show wore a dress that is unacceptable. We don’t interfere with anybody’s life but this is too much. This cannot be accepted anywhere in the world. Even in Hollywood they would think it too much”.

The issue here is that following this reaction, rumors spread in Turkey that the show may be presented by someone else next week. The show’s producer Caner Erdem stressed “the situation is not yet clear. Ms. Gozde Cansu has another shoot next week which coincides with our show. In this case there may be another presenter on the show”.

Cansu may pay dearly for her décolletage. Cansu has starred in many Turkish TV series and is one the country’s most famous actresses.
