Only Cathy Fischer (35), as Cathy Hummels was called at the time, had to leave the eighth season of the dance show "Let's Dance" (RTL) before her. Cora Schumacher (46) flew out in the following show. The performance of the ex-racing driver's wife at the time made juror Joachim Llambi (58) angry in particular. And that to this day, as he said on the show last week.
Anyone who had heard it had been waiting for a reaction from Schumacher ever since. And it's here now. In an Instagram story, the blonde vented. Under the headline "
In another story, she announces a more detailed statement. "I will also explain why, why, why I was only able to do one of the three weeks of training back in 2015 and that's why my performance wasn't exactly the best. But not competing at all wouldn't have been an option for me back then [...] The broadcaster and the production as well as Joachim Llambi were aware of that, and that's why I find it very, very inappropriate that this bullying and this discrimination continues every year, "says Schumacher.
She will also ask the broadcaster to "stop this in the future because it really hurts me". Everyone who was involved at the time knew about the situation at the time and everything that happened there. "And basically I just find this public shaming totally inappropriate. It should be an entertainment show and not a discriminatory show," she summarizes her criticism in a third story.
Cora Schumacher gets support from her ex-husband and father of their son, Ralf Schumacher (47). She shared a story from him on her account. In it he says: "I visited my ex-wife at the time, there on site, still with our son. And I have to say that Mr. Llambi's behavior was absolutely unacceptable. That had nothing to do with professional competence. Because okay, dancing is one thing, but you can also judge it differently than he did. It was more than below the belt," he says in the clip.
Surprisingly, in a current Instagram story on his own account, those who are interested learn that this clip is not new. "This post is from last year! My opinion hasn't changed and I don't understand why he keeps going. Apparently he stopped," writes Ralf Schumacher.
What did Joachim Llambi say? In the first regular "Let's Dance" edition (February 24) after the introductory show, the juror said when assessing the jive performance by actress Chryssanthi Kavazi (34) and dance professional Vadim Garbuzov (35):
"I got a plan this week, the music was on it: 'Shake it Off' - and I had a very bad feeling. It was a few years ago that Cora Schumacher was here..." he continued judge on. His co-jurors Mosti Mabuse (41) and Jorge González (56) interrupted him immediately. "Oh, you always bring out this old story," said Motsi annoyed and Jorge almost at the same time: "He lives in the past." And moderator Daniel Hartwich (44) also asked in disbelief: "Can't you finally leave Cora Schumacher alone?" Then Llambi: "No! That was so bad back then. I gave the only minus one." And Hartwich replied: "Mr. Llambi, you've mentioned that 254 times on this show. We all know it. Cora Schumacher probably still dreams of it..."
The next edition of the popular live show will be broadcast on RTL on Friday (March 3) from 8:15 p.m. – will the Schumacher replica remain uncommented?
