"Hartz und herzlich" on RTLZWEI: How is Michael doing after the death of Gudrun?
Due to the distance between Mannheim and his new home, Michael can rarely take care of the grave of "Hartz und herzlich" darling Gudrun – but his friends regularly check on the situation. It is difficult for the TV celebrity to dissolve the apartment in downtown Mannheim and thus leave the memories of his beloved wife Gudrun behind.
"The apartment was dissolved because my wife died and she is too expensive for me alone. [...] That's when my son said: You're coming to us now," Michael explains in the 30th episode "Hartz und herzlich". With Gudrun's son Markus and his family in Bavaria, Michael feels at home after just a few months.
