New life. ORF Lady Barbara Karlich shines like seldom before! The reason: the mother of a daughter is slim by 14 kilos. She chatted with WOMAN about her figure, trust, weddings & what Austria's school system is suffering from.
With the brown wall mane, her dark doe eyes and the distinctive face, Barbara Karlich, 44, is strikingly reminiscent of Hollywood star Eva Mendes on this day. At the WOMAN shoot (from page 44), the beautiful Burgenland woman not only exudes pure glamor, but also from the inside. You can tell: The Karlich feels good all round! And that is mainly due to the fact that she has lost a remarkable 14 kilos since her divorce from ex-husband Roland Hofbauer (she was in a relationship with the agency boss for six years, four of whom were married). How did she do it? "I will not tell! I would like to write a book about it and if I divulge everything, no one will buy it anymore! "After the eight-hour shoot, we asked Karlich to talk to her very personally about her new life over cool prosecco.
WOMAN: Ms. Karlich, are you reinventing yourself?
Karlich: Yeah, the question is new! It's interesting how often people ask me about my character. Obviously I'm only defined in terms of weight gain and weight loss. (laughs) But it's true, yes. Last summer I changed my whole life and with it my diet and now I just feel good.
WOMAN: Do women define themselves too much through optics?
Karlich: Yes, unfortunately. And mostly it's all about being thin because the media tell us that we can only achieve something like this. I know girls of primary school age who think they are too fat. Madness!
