    Old, old news, but it gets her attention, and Kat is the absolute QUEEN when it comes to getting attention. :lol:

    Very old but it probably wasn't even reported here in the UK when it actually was news. Difference is that Witt is now a judge on Dancing On Ice and she's doing well so the DM will go a digging :rolleyes:

    Ah but they don't say "with whom". THAT might be news.

    Eyeroll because this is the equivalent of DM reporting that Yuna Kim won Olympic Gold in 2010. Old news.

    Ah, okay. Thanks. I wasn't aware that it was old news around the World and not just here in Germany.

    I remember hearing about it way back when it first reported--so it was talked about in the States. But I don't remember if it was in the papers/news, or if it was Kat talking about it in some interview for some skating thing, or in a skating magazine.

    Old brain can remember some stuff, not all details!

    Um...when did Jutta Mueller become a man? About 1988, apparently. Now *that* is new news :rofl:

    (see the caption to the black and white picture about 2/3 of the way through the text).

    Not only is it old news, but it's not just that she claims it. The proof is in her Stassi files. They really did listen to her having sex.

    That definitely made me do a double- take and google "Jutta Mueller sex change".
    As for Stasi spying on everything- I wouldn't doubt it.

    That was what some people claimed but the Stasi records (which are now public) don't support this allegation.

    I think Witt benefited greatly from the system in East Germany and knows it. But that's different from being a Stasi spy.

    Richard Dean Anderson, a/k/a McGyver! He showed her how to use certain everyday household items when a ****** wasn't available.

    Old news? It's ancient. I remember hearing about this not too long after the Berlin wall came down. :rolleyes:

    :lol:

    THIS! I remember the Stassi files scandal-they spied on people even from childhood!

    I remember Witt laughing this off in a chat with Roy & HG during Australia's coverage of the 2002 Winter Olympics.

    Her interview was so funny.

    Yes, my annoyance was with the regime and was a "you have got to be kidding" that they would do that. Of course, J Edgar Hoover in the US was always looking in people's bedrooms, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised at who does it.

    I don't know. How exciting is it to listen to people have sex for 7 minutes? Now if they were watching as well, I could see it, but just listening was probably more annoying than anything.

    According to her biography lots was made up anyway. She speculated that this was because most of her spies did not speak English. So the reports when she had a guest where more like: Kati and guest talk in foreign language. She laughed about it in her diary saying that at one point Brian Boitano was there as her guest and the Stasi spy wrote that they had had sex for 7 minutes when Brian never was interested in women anyway and when they definitely never had sex but that probably the spy thought that he had to write something
