Anfang Juni feierte Daniela Katzenberger ihre romantische Märchenhochzeit mit Sänger Lucas Cordalis. Doch statt süßem Liebesgeflüster verliert die Katze in ihrem neuen Buch “Eine Tussi sagt ‘Ja'” schockierend harte Worte über ihren Mann

Daniela Katzenberger, 29, und Lucas Cordalis, 48, gelten als DAS deutsche TV-Traumpaar. Regelmäßig lassen sie in ihrer Doku-Soap und im Internet ein Millionenpublikum an ihrem Glück teilhaben. Jüngster Liebes-Höhepunkt: Die romantische Hochzeit auf dem Petersberg in Bonn am 4. Juni.

Doch im Leben von Daniela und Lucas läuft nicht immer alles so perfekt, wie es scheint: Im letzten Jahr durchlebte das Paar eine schwere Krise, wie Daniela in ihrem neuen Buch “Eine Tussi sagt ‘Ja'”verrät.

Daniela Katzenberger und Lucas Cordalis in der Babykrise

Ausgerechnet die Geburt von Töchterchen Sophia im August 2015 entzweite das liebende Paar. “Ich hasste meinen Mann. So sehr, wie ich mein Kind liebte und knuddelte, es mit Zuneigung überschüttete und vor Glück ausflippte, wenn es gluckste, so sehr bekam Lucas volle Breitseite”, offenbart die Kult-Blondine.

So sehr verabscheute Daniela ihren Mann Lucas

Dabei präsentierte sich der Sänger nach der Geburt von Sophia von seiner besten Seite. Kümmerte sich um das Baby, ging Daniela im Haushalt zur Hand. “Nach Strich und Faden” habe er sie verwöhnt, lobt Katzenberger das Verhalten ihres Mannes. Obwohl Millionen Frauen von einem solchen Partner träumen, konnte Lucas seiner Liebsten damals aber so rein gar nichts recht machen.

“Was er falsch machte? Alles. Sein größter Fehler: Er war einfach da und hat geatmet”, offenbart Katzenberger schonungslos offen ihre damaligen Gefühle. “Egal, was er machte, er nervte.”

Diese Antipathie gegenüber ihrem Mann stimmt die Katze rückblickend traurig. “Wenn ich das heute so aufschreibe, schäme ich mich in Grund und Boden. Wie unfair von mir, wie gemein! Er hatte ja nichts getan”, zeigt sie sich reumütig. Schuld seien postnatale Hormone gewesen. Sie hätten sie zu einem Menschen gemacht, der sie eigentlich gar nicht habe sein wollen.

Heute ist das TV-Paar wieder glücklich verliebt

Doch wer liebt, der verzeiht. “Lucas, es tut mir so leid, dass ich so war, wie ich war. Sorry!” bittet die Katze öffentlich in ihrem Buch um Entschuldigung. Lucas hat der frischgebackenen Mutter ihre Übellaunigkeit offenbar längst nachgesehen – und gab ihr trotz des Baby-Blues’ sein Ja-Wort.

Bella Hadid Admits She Was Rejected From Last Year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Bella Hadid Admits She Was Rejected From Last Year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

It’s impossible to deny that Bella Hadid has more than carved out a place for herself in the supermodel strata: She has all the girl-next-door qualities that made big sister Gigi a Model of the Year winner, but with a darker, more mysterious side that’s landed her on Chanel, Versace, and Fendi runways. So it’s hard to believe that only a year ago, Bella was rejected from the very runway she totally owned at the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, that being the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

That’s right, the 20-year-old revealed in her Paper magazine cover story that she went out for the show last year but didn’t make the cut. “I tried last year [to be cast in] the show [but] I think everything happens for a reason,” she tells the mag. Fast-forward to the buzzy VS Fashion Show broadcast this past Monday when she joined Gigi and BFF Kendall Jenner (not to mention ex-beau The Weeknd) on the glittery Paris runway in feather wings. If we’ve learned anything from Bella Hadid’s experience, it’s that no matter how far we’ve gone, we always have to keep working to achieve our goals. Thanks for the wisdom, Bels!

Mia Gundersen Avslører Sin Store Hemmelighet

Mia Gundersen Avslører Sin Store Hemmelighet

(Dagbladet): – Det var en veldig sterk opplevelse. Plutselig fikk jeg en større forståelse rundt min egen slekt, noe som var både sårt og vondt. Likevel var det endelig flere ting som falt på plass, sier Mia Gundersen til Dagbladet.

I biografien «Jeg er Mia», som kom ut i 2008, beskriver Mia Gundersen (53) hvordan det var å vokse opp i en familie med en mor som var rusmisbruker.

– Smerte kan gå i arv

Gundersens mor, Unni Gundersen, døde av en overdose heroin, 70 år gammel.

Men selv om den kjente artisten og tv-personligheten da var åpen om sin mors avhengighet, visste hun da likevel ikke mye om hvordan moren hennes hadde det som barn.

I NRK-programmet «Hvem tror du at du er?», som går på tv i kveld, prøver hun derfor å finne svar ved å få mer informasjon om sin egen slekt.

– Jeg visste jo ingenting. Det jeg ser helt tydelig er at smerte kan gå i arv. Når ting blir lagt lokk på, så kan det være farlig. Man blir aldri et helt menneske når man bærer på løgner. Jeg ser at det er utrolig viktig å analysere seg selv, og sine egne ønsker. På den måten kan man unngå å drasse på vonde sider ved en familiearv, fortsetter hun.

Oppdager bestefarens hemmelighet

I programmet forklarer Gundersen at hverken hun eller de nålevende familiemedlemmene hennes vet mye om Gundersen morfar, Torger Rikard Birkeland Larsen.

Etterhvert kommer det fram at morfaren hadde en vanskelig barndom. Morfaren var en såkalt «løsunge», og da moren gifta seg på nytt, ble han plassert hos sine fattige besteforeldre.

Likevel fikk han plass i skolen, og fikk svært gode resultater. Men da han byttet skole i femteklasse, skjedde det noe. Etterhvert ble han sendt til øya Lindøy utenfor Stavanger for å gå på tvangsskole. Morfaren ble på skolen, som var kjent for sitt strenge regime og harde avstraffelser, i hele ett år og åtte måneder. 

– Det er grusomt. Dette går rett inn i hjertet mitt. Alt vi har vist har vært basert på småløgner, ingenting har kommet fram i vår familie. Tenk hvordan den hemmeligheten har blitt bevart, sier Mia Gundersen i programmet.

– Alt har vært basert på små løgner, fortsetter hun.

– En stor, stygg hemmelighet

Etter morfarens vanskelige barndom ble han fyrbøter på et dampskip, som regnes som å ha vært et svært hardt yrke.

– Min mor klarte å komme seg vekk, hun klarte å skaffe seg et mye bedre liv. Men mor klarte ikke få hull på den smerten som lå i barndommen hennes. Det syns jeg virker som en arv som har gått igjen fra morfar. Vi har fått hull på noe, som har vært en stor og stygg hemmelighet i vår familie, og en vond bør som vi har drassa på. Det skal vi være så glade for, sier Gundersen i programmet.

Overfor Dagbladet forklarer Gundersen at det er utrolig viktig å stå i sin egen kraft.

– Det handler om å skjønne at dette ikke dreier seg om meg og mitt liv. Takk og lov for at man nå lever i en tid hvor man er utrolig opplyst om ulike ting.

– Det var veldig sjokkerende å se at slektsforskningen også ga nye opplysninger, ikke bare om min familie, men også om en mørk side av norgeshistorien, og hva vi har gjort. Det var utrolig sterkt.

“I will breathe. I will think of solutions, I will not let my worry control me. I will not let my stress level break me. I will simply breathe. And it will be okay. Because I don’t quit.” ~Shayne McClendon

It was a Wednesday afternoon in late July, and I felt like my entire world was coming to an end. My husband of almost eleven years had become distant, and during a phone call on my lunch break he told me he couldn’t do this anymore. That evening he told me he no longer loved me and wanted a divorce. (more…)

“It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.” ~Epictetus

About nine years back I was at the lowest point of my life.

We had been trying to start a family for close to four years by that point.

The forty-plus consecutive months of “not pregnant” verdict were starting to take their toll on me. That second line on the pregnancy test strip seemed like it would never appear. Life felt like it was a never-ending cycle of false hope that was always crushed in the end. (more…)

We numb our minds and heart so one need not be broken and the other need not be bothered.” ~Peggy Haymes

Feelings are important, no doubt about it. They communicate all sorts of information to us. I don’t know about you, but I’ve preferred to ignore some of that information. Raise your hand if you would much rather feel the good feelings and just jump right over the not so good ones. (more…)

Like my grandfather, I have always been a weather geek. I check the weather news daily and, for as long as I can remember, thunderstorms, warm/cold fronts, and clouds have fascinated me.

Close friends of mine will be the first to tell you that I have the bad habit of stopping someone mid-sentence to point out cirrus clouds, or a storm on the horizon. (more…)
