Ellen Pompeo calls for the end of “Grey’s Anatomy”
The doctor series “Grey’s Anatomy” has been running on German television since 2005, and Season 18 is currently being broadcast in the USA. There from the start: Ellen Pompeo, 52, in her role as Dr. Meredith Gray. But apparently 16 years is enough for the leading actress. Because to the surprise of all fans, she is now calling out for the series!
In an interview with “Insider” magazine, the American reveals that she wants to take off her smock once and for all. “I’m just concentrating on convincing everyone that it’s going to end,” said the Grey’s Anatomy darling. But the makers of the successful series seem anything but convinced of the idea. “I feel like I’m this super naive person who says, ‘What’s the story going to be like, which story should we tell?’ And everyone just says: ‘Who cares Ellen? It makes a gazillion dollars’ “, said the 52-year-old. Not the first time that the leading actress pleads for the series to end. Maybe the makers will have mercy this time.

Separation in the case of a “wedding at first sight” couple
They will no longer spend Christmas as a couple: The “wedding at first sight” stars Philipp and Melissa have surprisingly split up. The couple made this sad announcement on Instagram. Philipp and Melissa met in 2019 in the successful dome show. The birth of their son, 1, crowned their love last year. The breakup will disappoint many fans.
The ex-couple does not want to talk about the reasons. In a joint statement on Instagram, both announce that they have been in a crisis for a long time. “Even if we tried to prevent it for a long time, we broke up. Our marriage failed,” it says. For their son, however, the two continue to stick together. “Of course we will continue to be the parents of Little Muck and try not to let him suffer from the new situation,” emphasize Melissa and Philipp.

“The Rosenheim Cops”: Sina Wilke returns for the winter special as a forensic doctor Sandra Mai
Sina Wilke, 36, alias forensic doctor Sandra Mai is back. Last April, the actress caused a great disappointment among her fans when she announced her departure from the series “The Rosenheim Cops” after five years. “After such a long time in a series, I also wanted to develop further,” said Sina, explaining her decision.
Now the popular series is causing a surprise, because in the episode “Murderous Society”, which will be broadcast on Wednesday, December 29, 2021 at 8:15 pm on ZDF, Sina Wilke is suddenly back according to the “Stuttgarter Nachrichten”. And that, although the role of forensic doctor has already been filled with a successor and the 36-year-old has long since ceased to be seen with the “Rosenheim Cops”. The explanation for this fact is simple: It is a feature-length winter special that runs independently of the series and during which Sina Wilke played the role of Sandra Mai.
“Wedding at first sight”: This couple is getting divorced
The grand finale of “Wedding at First Sight” is just around the corner: the last episode of the successful Sat.1 dome show will be on December 22, 2021. As in previous seasons, not all TV marriages last.
+++ Warning, spoilers! +++
While five couples can look to a bright future, one couple sees no potential in their marriage and ultimately decides to divorce: Juliane and Robert go their separate ways after the finale. Already in the honeymoon there was a serious crisis. Juliane, who sometimes needed time for herself, gave Robert exactly the one on the beach. But the bridegroom couldn’t cope with that. “Unfortunately, he accused me of whether I’m here to make friends or whether I’m here to find a partner,” said Juliane. “To accuse this stubborn and me of being dishonest …”, the Brandenburg woman was hurt.
And it got worse. The situation became more and more acute. In the end, Robert accused Juliane of not “pissing him off”, that he could do otherwise. She wept bitter tears. While Robert held on to the marriage, Juliane wanted the final cut. What a pity!

“Wedding at first sight”: Manuela sells her dress before the final
The concept of the dome show “Wedding at First Sight” is unusual. Bride and groom meet as strangers in front of the altar and only really get to know each other after the wedding. Experts put together the perfect pair constellations according to scientific aspects. At the wedding altar – and in front of the camera – all couples first say yes. Not all TV marriages hold up. Also in the current season, doubts arise with a couple, because candidate Manuela sells her wedding dress shortly before the final (Wednesday, December 22nd)!
Everything looked so rosy. Is the chemistry between Manuela, 50, and Ralf, 57, right, isn’t it? It’s not that wild. Manuela just wants to give her dress to someone “who wants it and maybe doesn’t have that much money.”
She still finds her dress adorable, but would like to please another bride. “In the end, it doesn’t matter what is paid for the dress, just as much as it is possible. The sum will then be donated in full,” said the Dortmund woman. So fans can continue to hope for the big happy ending.
