Only fur from "edible animals": "It's rabbit": Carmen Geiss defends her fur coat against critics

After heavy criticism because of a photo with a fur coat, reality star Carmen Geiss defends the outfit. "It's rabbits," said the 57-year-old of the German Press Agency in Munich. "It's not an ocelot, it's not a sable." She generally only wears things from animals that you can eat. "The coat is actually 10 or 12 years old. That's why I don't just throw the coat away."

Geiss wore the coat in London when the new season of the docu-soap "The Geissens – A Terribly Glamorous Family" was filmed. It starts on January 2nd on RTLzwei. On Instagram there was criticism for the photo that she shows at her husband Robert's side: "Sorry fur doesn't work at all, think of the animals!!!!!" It said in a comment there.

Over Christmas, the family withdraws from the hustle and bustle - to a holiday home in the French mountains, "without a camera", as the parents and their daughters Shania and Davina unanimously emphasize. "It's the time when we are among ourselves," emphasizes 18-year-old Shania. The fans don't have to do without their favorites entirely. "We make videos and put them on the Internet," promises Carmen Geiss. And it is cooked heartily. "Our children love our kitchen," she says, and her husband reveals the menu. "There's chicken for Christmas Eve. But we also cook roast pork or boiled fillet." Then there will be a "really classic" celebration with presents.

Instead, everyone wants to play together and have fun. And maybe hit the slopes. Will father Robert also ski? "No, snow shovels," he says. There's a lot of work waiting for him, as it has already snowed heavily in the region where the holiday home is located. "I even have a quad for it with a caterpillar and all the trimmings, that's a relatively large property," explains the entrepreneur, who also works in the fashion industry, among other things.

From January 2nd, the 21st season of their documentary series "The Geissens - A Terribly Glamorous Family" will provide new insights into the luxury life of the millionaire family. Start is at 8:15 p.m. on RTLzwei.
