    Die Zuschauer wurden von Judith Rakers schockiert

    “Tagesschau”-Sprecherin Judith Rakers, 41, und ihr Ehemann Andreas Pfaff, 45, haben sich getrennt. Das bestätigte ein Anwalt des Paares gegenüber dem “Stern”.

    Judith Rakers und Andreas Pfaff sind schon getrennt

    “Ja, es stimmt, meine Mandantin und ihr Mann haben sich getrennt”, bestätigte Rakers’ Rechtsanwalt Christian Schertz dem “Stern”. Das Ehe-Aus sei einvernehmlich “vor einiger Zeit” erfolgt. Gründe für die Trennung oder ein genaues Datum sind bisher nicht bekannt.

    “Wir bitten die Medien, die Privatsphäre zu respektieren und von weiteren Anfragen Abstand zu nehmen”, sagte Schertz im Namen seiner Mandanten weiter.

    Das Ehe-Aus überrascht

    Die Trennung der hübschen “Tagesschau”-Sprecherin und des Immobilienökonomen kommt überraschend. Noch im April lief das Ehepaar gut gelaunt beim Nannen-Preis in Hamburg über den roten Teppich. Von einer Krise war damals nichts zu merken.

    Eine Woche nachdem sie und Ehemann Andreas Pfaff im Juni 2009 in Hamburg standesamtlich heirateten, feierte das Paar auf Mallorca ein romantisches Fest. “Andreas und ich sind beide sehr selbstständig und haben ganz andere Begabungen, aber wir ergänzen uns gut und versuchen nicht, uns gegenseitig zu verändern”, verriet Judith Rakers damals im “Bunte”-Interview.

    Das gemeinsame Hobby: Pferde

    Die Moderatorin und der Immobilienökonom teilten ihre Leidenschaft für den Reitsport. “Es ist schon toll, wenn man dieses Hobby als Paar teilt. Es ist wunderschön, wenn man sich nach Feierabend aufs Pferd setzt und gemeinsam einen entspannten Ausritt unternimmt.”, sagte sie GALA im August 2016 im Interview.

    Carsten Macht Größten Deal Jemals

    In der Höhle der Löwen wurde der Rekord-Deal noch gefeiert: eine Million Euro für neun Prozent Anteile – das gab es vorher noch nie. Doch das Investment kam nie zustande. FOCUS Online zeigt das Protokoll des Eklats.

    März 2017: Die Vox-Sendung wird aufgezeichnet. Nach langem hin und her einigen sich die Gründer mit den Löwen auf einen Deal: Alle 5 Investoren steigen ein, zahlen je 200.000 Euro und erhalten je 1,8 Prozent Anteile.

    2. April: Mindestens drei der fünf Gründer haben sich kurz nach der Sendung aus dem operativen Geschäft zurückgezogen. An ihrer Stelle tritt Mette Lykke als neue CEO.

    Sie macht in einer Mail deutlich, dass das Unternehmen nicht mehr an einem Deal mit allen fünf Löwen interessiert ist. Die fünf Gründer wollten auch keine neun Prozent ihres Unternehmens mehr abgeben. Stattdessen soll nur Carsten Maschmeyer 1,8 Prozent für 200.000 Euro erhalten. Auf Anfrage von FOCUS Online streitet das Unternehmen ab, Maschmeyer einen solchen exklusiven Investment-Deal angeboten zu haben.

    3. August: Das Startup zieht sich vollends aus den Vertragsverhandlungen zurück. Man brauche keine finanzielle Unterstützung mehr. Einen möglichen Deal mit Maschmeyer will sich „Too Good To Go“ für die Zukunft aber offenhalten.

    7. November: Der Auftritt der Gründer läuft im Fernsehen. Alle verlassen zufrieden die Löwenhöhle. Doch hinter den Kulissen wird es bald anfangen zu brodeln.

    How to exercise your dog indoors

    Dogs need their daily exercise, and even things like it being too cold or hot outside or the days getting shorter shouldn’t get in the way. One of the most important parts of Cesar’s teachings is that you need to walk your dog every day, several times a day no matter what the weather is like.

    However, if you absolutely cannot take your dog out because it’s unsafe, here are some tips on how to work out your dog’s body and mind indoors. Remember, though, that our dogs need limitations, meaning that you control when and for how long they engage in indoor play. Substituting other activities for the walk for too long and too often may lead to your dog developing unhealthy obsessions.

    1. Run your dog up and down the stairs.
    Using the stairs is a great way to tire out your dog. The steps add an additional challenge to a dog’s workout, as they engage different muscles than those used on a regular walk or run and add an extra level of difficulty with the change in elevation. Stand at the top of the stairs and throw a toy down to your dog. When your dog grabs the toy, call his name and have him bring the toy to you. After several rounds of this, he’ll be winded.

    2. Set up obstacle courses.
    Whenever Cesar enters someone’s house on the show, he looks around for things in the environment that can be repurposed to help the dog. Like using that old hula hoop for him to leap through or using cushions to create a tunnel for him to navigate. Map everything out and lead your dog through the various obstacles. This game will challenge your dog both mentally and physically.

    3. Make your dog work for its treats.
    Take a variety of your dog’s favorite treats and hide the around the house – behind doors, under tables, underneath rugs, etc. Your dog will be so busy tracking down his treats that he’ll physically tire out in the process. Treat dispensing toys are another great way to keep your dog busy and engage them physically as they push around their toys and try to get to the food inside.

    4. Keep away and fetch.
    Engage your dog in a good old fashioned game of fetch and keep away. These games keep your dog engaged, active, and help to release pent up energy.

    5. Take a socialized outing.
    Put your dog in the car (always remember to use a car restraint!) and head over to the nearest pet store. Walk your dog through the aisles, let him try out toys and sniff around.

    6. Get your dog on the treadmill.
    A treadmill is a great way to get your dog a dose of healthy indoor exercise. First, allow your dog to get comfortable with the sight and sound of a running treadmill. Next, place your dog on the treadmill and give him a treat. Turn the treadmill on the lowest speed. Give him treats to keep him on the treadmill. You may use the dog’s leash as an aid but never tie your dog to the treadmill. Also, standing in front of the treadmill and rewarding him with treats for walking might make your dog feel more comfortable. Once your dog is adjusted, you can gradually increase the speed to provide a more challenging workout.

    7. Tug of War—But Be Aware of the Risks
    With the amount of ropes and toys available that encourage tug of war, it’s not surprising that so many dog owners play this game with their dog. However, you need to be aware of the risk. It’s a game that brings out the predator in your dog and can be unhealthy for your relationship if you don’t have trust and respect to begin with. You need to have control over your dog’s power and instincts before you can engage in a healthy game of tug of war with them.

    A Countess Cabaret

    Oh Lu, maybe you should learn when to fold ’em.

    Luann has had a rough few weeks. First she was arrested in the city where she was married, announced she was going into rehab and then it was suggested that she drop her last name (for original story click here.)

    Now in a sure to be embarrassment, Page Six is reporting that Luann is moving forward with a Cabaret show that has been in the works. Is Sonja Morgan her agent giving her these ideas???

    Page Six reports that Lu has been working hard on a Cabaret act titled “Countess and Friends” and is described as a:‘ “nightclub act”which is set to debut at NYC supper club Feinstein’s/54 Below on Feb. 27 and March 8, unless she is still in rehab or isn’t permitted to leave Florida by the judge presiding over her case.’

    The show will showcase: “[D]e Lesseps’s glamorous life in the fast lane on several continents (together with a solid decade at the center of reality TV) provides fodder for hilarious stories, one-of-a-kind anecdotes, and, of course, some standards and pop songs in her inimitable style.”

    In addition she will have some guests described as, “an eclectic group of New York’s most sought after nightlife stars, both legendary and ascendant. Promises a glorious return to the heyday of cosmopolitan evening entertainment.”

    Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Spotted Together

    The couple that works out together, stays together! Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were photographed leaving a hot yoga session together in Los Angeles on Wednesday, January 3.

    Bieber, 23, and Gomez, 25, spent New Year’s Eve together in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, over the weekend. The “Wolves” singer shared photos with her close friends on the beach. 

    “Selena and Justin are back together,” an insider told Us at the time. “Selena and The Weeknd just fizzled and ended amicably — it wasn’t dramatic and it wasn’t about Justin. But Selena always had feelings for Justin.”

    While the on-again, off-again couple have yet to confirm their relationship, they were seen hugging each other during a night at a Montage hotel restaurant last month and were spotted exchanging a kiss after the “Love Yourself” singer’s recent hockey game. 

    Bieber first reached out to his ex beau in the months following her May kidney transplant. “They have both grown up tremendously and think that this is their time to get back to where they were before, but more in love than ever,” an insider exclusively told Us in November.

    The source added that because of their tumultuous history, Gomez’s “friends want her to be cautious.”

    Suzanne Somers Proves that You can Look Incredible at Any Age

    Game over, guys. It’s January 3, but Suzanne Somers just won 2018. The iconic actress  (and, let’s be honest, a women who will forever be #bodygoals) stepped out in a Balmain minidress and totally shut it down.

    Nevermind the fact that the Three’s Company star is 71 years old, she is proof that you can pull any look off (no matter how daring) when you rock it with confidence. Somers’ ultra-glam Balmain frock is a long sleeve minidress with metallic tiger print — not exactly a subtle fashion moment. And while some people might relegate such a bold moment to be worn exclusively by someone in their 20s or 30s or perhaps someone who has an edgier aesthetic, Somers proves that age has nothing to do with wearing our clothes well.

    Even better? This isn’t the first time that the actress has rocked the same dress. In fact, Somers wore the sequined animal print mini in June 2016 — and get this, she accessorized the same way. All she needed was simple coordinated pair of gold metallic pumps! Our takeaway: if you find a look that works for you, wear it for as long as you love it — regardless of whether it is 2 years later or 10 years later. Put the photos side-by-side and you can’t even tell they were taken nearly two years apart!

    Somers is in good company with with this Balmain pick. Mariah Carey also wore the dress back in May 2016, but chose to wear the look with her own signature style touches: fishnets and black peep toe pumps (oh and, major movie star shades). The result: Carey’s look was all diva, whereas Somers’ outfit was a playful twist on her sexy style. Either way, Suzanne Somers and Mariah Carey prove that an investment in a killer Balmain dress is worth it, no matter your age.
