- Heidi Klum appeared on the TV show during a modeling competition 31 years ago “Gottschalk late night” Discovered by Thomas Gottschalk.
- But even though the 50-year-old Gottschalk owes her career to him, the 73-year-old Gottschalk now claims on the Die Supernasen podcast that he made a mistake with Klum.
- “She’s still mad because I was once invited to the finals of her ‘Top Model’ movie and she said I felt like I was at a kid’s birthday party,” Gottschalk says.
Heidi Klum is now an international star. She began her career on the evening program of the German television station RTL.
In the 1992 fashion modeling competition in Gottschalk’s Late Night Show He was discovered by Thomas Gottschalk and became famous almost overnight.
But although Klum, 50, owes her career to 73-year-old Gottschalk, the broadcaster is said to have “ruined” the model.
Mike Krueger: “I always ask myself, are the three of them alive?”
But let’s start at the beginning: Heidi Klum has been known for her Halloween party for years. Year after year, people there are surprised with rather unusual outfits.
The two older men did not notice that Heidi Klum appeared this year dressed as a peacock, after wearing a worm costume last year, while her husband, Tom Kaulitz, was swaying on the red carpet like an egg.
In the course of the conversation, Gottschalk/Krueger also talked about Tom’s twin brother, Bill Kaulitz. “I always ask myself, ‘Are there three of them now? Are three of them living there now?’” Krueger says.
Thomas Gottschalk: “Like a kid’s birthday party”
“Beef, beef, beef,” Gottschalk interrupts at one point, then speaks clearly:
“Well, I screwed up with Heidi Klum anyway. I found out, but I forgot about it anyway. She’s still mad because I was once invited to the Top Model finals and she said I felt like I was at a kid’s birthday party.”
Gottschalk goes on to say that the entire presentation was simply too much for him. You should know: In 2019, nominee Theresia married her then-partner on camera.
To make matters worse, the sound also left a lot to be desired. “I didn’t hear anything,” Gottschalk said on the podcast. He sat next to the model, who couldn’t hear anything either, “because they had invested all the money in lighting and had nothing left for sound.”
Which is why Gottschalk said to Klum at one point, “I feel like I’m at a kid’s birthday party because there’s a lot of screaming,” and she still resents me for that to this day.
