Andrea’s life is full of unexpected and unusuall happenings, as you may have got used to. In the spring of 2003 the Hungarian National Court decided that Andrea is going back to her position as the vice president of the Hungarian Television. The verdict had to be done at ones. So Andrea in one hour became a leader again. She went back her job as a vice president for another half year. And what is more we can say, she became an eternal vice president of MTV, since the legal act, the with drawel of owner’s board did not happen until today. BUT.
Andrea’s heart was beating for her viewers during the whole time of her leadership. She missed her show, she missed her audience.
Andrea went back to her show in the spring of 2004. At once
she became popular, it seems, that people kept her in their hearts.
Her talk show became the most watched day time talk show of MTV. Andrea
says this is a big happiness in her life, that she could go back where
she came from, to show.
Andrea is workoholic but when she is not working:
favourite city: New York, Monte Carlo, La Jolla
favourite animals: her dogs, the two St. Bernards, Deborah and Flicky,
the white shepherd Luna, and the black wilde german shepherd Susy.
