The private TV station RTL went on the air on January 2, 1984 in Germany. At that time the station was called RTL plus. The abbreviation “RTL” is derived from the name “Radio Television Luxembourg”. The TV station was created as an offshoot of the German-language radio program “Radio Luxemburg”.

Mike Cees just can’t stop himself. After becoming a scandal candidate in the “Summer House of the Stars”, he apparently tries to “Battle of the reality stars‘ to clear his reputation again.

But it’s not just the viewers who remember Mike’s escapades, but also the other celebrities on “Battle of the reality stars“ know about the uproar surrounding actress Michelle Monballjin’s estranged husband. In the men’s conversation with ex-politician Ronald Schill, he now speaks openly about his failed marriage.

“Since I didn’t know how this project would turn out, I left home,” says Mike Cees. He wanted to give his wife food for thought. Ronald Schill can now only shake his head on the subject.


This is the RTL2 show “Battle of the reality stars“:

  • “Kampf der Realitystars” is broadcast on RTL2 and sends celebrities to a dream beach in Thailand
  • The participants compete for airtime, 50,000 euros in prize money and the title of “Reality Star of the Year”
  • Cathy Hummels is hosting the show


The couples therapy that Mike and Michelle planned to try to save their marriage has so far apparently been unsuccessful, as Mike Cees now reveals. “A lot of things have been defined but not implemented. That made me very angry.”

Hobby psychologist Ronald Schill cannot understand his colleague Mike Cees in “Battle of the Reality Stars”.

Ronald Schill has little understanding for the marital problems of his “Battle of the Reality Stars” competitor. “He complained that the program ‘Summer House of the Stars’ treated him as the worst husband in Germany. And he always tended to blame the others, i.e. his wife, and is completely uncritical of himself,” said Schill in the subsequent interview.

In the case of Mike Cees, there can indeed be no question of self-reflection. “Is it just because I did shit at the ‘summer house’? Do I have to atone for this for the rest of my life?” he asks in disbelief in the interview.
