Late Actor Willie Herrin (45) has been a welcome guest in many reality formats. He also got to know the Swiss TV woman Elena Meraas (28). In 2019, they were together on “Summer House of the Stars”, until last Monday they could be seen on Sat.1 “Promis Unter Palmen”. “I was totally shocked by the news of my death,” the influencer, who lives in Zurich, told Blake.
She learns of Willie Herren’s death after landing on the return flight from vacation in Spain. First the messages came from the group chat of celebrities under the palm trees, then from the news portals. However, she couldn’t believe the whole thing. “I thought it was a bad joke. Everything was very close to me.”
After the “summer house” the two did not have a good relationship
The two met two years ago while filming “Summer House of the Stars.” On the show, known for the many quarrels between the participants, she did not participate well with the deceased star Ballerman. “Our relationship changed a lot in Thailand when we were photographing celebrities under palm trees,” she says.
The two spent a mandatory 16-day quarantine before the January registrations in adjacent rooms. “He was the only person I really called during this time,” she says.
Communication during the coronavirus quarantine
Even if the accommodations were separated from each other, the two could communicate outside on the balcony via the parapet. “We talked from morning to evening. There I got to know Willie very differently than he was at the time at the summer house. He is very sympathetic and caring. We laughed a lot and forgot everything that was happening in our first show.”
The two agreed so well that at the end of the recording, Miras introduced him to her mates, her mother Maria (53 years old) and daughter Eileen (2). “I don’t do it for everyone.”
Meraas understands that “Celebrities Under Palm Trees” will not last
Meraas believes that Saturday 1 is not broadcasting highlights of this year’s season of “Celebrities Under the Palm” for reasons of piety, as the right decision. “If it had happened to me the same thing, I would have wanted it this way as well,” she says. “Anything else would be disrespect for the family.”
She doesn’t think too much about drug rumors about his death. The men were clean during production. “It was unreasonable for something like this to happen. He also lost weight and looked healthy than ever before.”
“He was a good person”
Elena Meras recalls Willie Herrin as “a very happy and well-behaved person trying to motivate everyone.” “It was also very direct and occasionally toxic,” he adds, laughing. But we all sometimes. He was a good person. ”
