Lothar Matthäus & Joanna Tuczynska: Reality Bites
Retired German footballer, Lothar Matthäus, did his best to act natural whilst filming scenes for his upcoming reality show early yesterday morning.
If you’ve been blissfully unaware of what’s been happening in Lothar’s life, consider yourself lucky.
The backstory is: because Lothar’s repeated misfortunes both on and off the field have been closely monitored by the German media, the 50-year-old’s post-pitch notoriety largely stems from him being the butt of the their jokes.
So from the four time divorcee’s perspective – along with his Polish girlfriend, an underwear model 23 years his junior – a multipart docu-soap gives him the best shot at repairing his tarnished public image.
Can anyone say “midlife crisis?” How ’bout in German?
