Marijke Amado (66) speaks for the first time about bad experiences! In the 90s, the presenter celebrated some great successes: Last but not least, her role as a host in the popular children’s program “Mini Playback Show” made her a real cult face of the German TV landscape – and since then she has been known primarily for her always cheerful nature. But inside it sometimes looked different: Marijke now reveals that she has been the victim of domestic violence several times!
In conversation with Gala wants to call on the Dutch to finally remove the taboo from the subject, above all because of the current situation – and starts with herself. She had to experience violence at home twice: “The first time about 30, the second time 15 years ago”revealed the 66-year-old. The first time the injuries were so bad that she had to go to the hospital. “But the worst thing was not the physical pain, but the mental pain,” she said.
It is therefore all the more important for television awareness to show people who have experienced something similar that they are not alone: “Your own home can be a dangerous place. I think it is important that well-known personalities now say: We too have experienced domestic violence and we want to encourage you, the victims, to take your life into your own hands”, she explained her step in public.
