WDR presenter got divorced after 20 years of marriage
Lisa Ortgies is no longer married. The WDR presenter announced that she got divorced after 20 years of marriage.
The WDR presenter Lisa Ortgies (55) has so far largely kept her private life out of the public eye. For example, her husband never appeared together on the red carpet. In the “Bild am Sonntag” she now explains: “My husband and I got divorced after 20 years of marriage.”
In the podcast “Lisas Paarschitt” she now processes what she experienced: “Even after my own divorce, I know much better what is missing and what I have to sort out after a separation.” Every eleven minutes a single would supposedly fall in love, but every four minutes a marriage would get divorced, Ortgies said: “I want to know what happens before, during a relationship and what happens afterwards.”
In 2017 she suffered a heart attack
Born in Quakenbrück, she has been on television since 1996. Her career took her from the local broadcaster Hamburg 1 via NDR to WDR, where, among other things, she moderates the program “frauTV”. She is the mother of a daughter and a son and lives in Hamburg. In 2018, Ortgies announced that they had had a heart attack while on vacation in New York the previous year.
