What happened to the main TV beauties of the 1990s and 2000s? Remembering your favorite facesPictolic
In the 1990s, our TV has blossomed. New, bright voices began to sound, and beautiful young faces appeared. Most of the broadcasts were conducted, as always, by men. But the women who managed to break through to the screen were really bright and talented. It's been almost 30 years. What was their fate?
Arina Sharapova was one of the first to appear on the new Russian television. Already in 1991, she led the Russian-American program "60 Minutes", then-the information program "Vesti", then "Time" came to replace "Vesti".»…
For a short time, her author's programs "Arina" and "Meeting Place with Arina Sharapova"were released. They turned out, frankly, to be a failure, and the presenter decided to try her luck in Krasnoyarsk Region, where she created the author's program "Meetings with Arina".
In 2001, a triumphant return to the capital took place — Sharapova was invited to host "Good Morning", and many turned on the TV just to meet her: the direct, relaxed manner of conversation, simplicity in communication and Arina's smile very much attracted the audience to her.
Arina appeared on the air of "Fashion Verdict", and in other projects. Recently, the TV presenter is giving more and more time to politics. Currently, Sharapova is the deputy chairman of the Public Chamber of Moscow.
Today Arina Ayanovna is 59 years old, her only son Danila and daughter-in-law Alina gave her two grandchildren, in whom the presenter dotes and tries to spend all her free time with them.
In the 90s, Svetlana Sorokina worked as a presenter of the program "Vesti". She was a real virtuoso: no one else could hold the audience's attention for so long. Many people remember Sorokina's highly professional political reviews. And for her coverage of the events of 1993, she was awarded the order "For Personal Courage".
As a director, Svetlana made documentaries that sharply criticize the authorities. Even today, she is an independent journalist, adheres to opposition views and appears mainly on the airwaves of the Dozhd and Echo channels, writes sharp political articles that can be read on the Internet. Sorokina is 63 years old, her two marriages ended in divorce.
In 2003, the journalist visited an orphanage — she decided to adopt a child. And one of the babies somehow immediately reached out to a strange woman. So the girl found her mother: Svetlana called her Antonina and really fell in love with her daughter. What the girl's name was before — Sorokina never voiced, although she readily told about the fact of adoption in an interview.
Antonina successfully graduated from high school, now the girl is studying at a university. Surprisingly, over the years, Tonya has become very similar to her adoptive mother.
Viewers will surely remember one of the brightest TV stars of the 90s-the bold and pugnacious Tatiana Mitkova. This beautiful girl hosted the programs "120 minutes", "International Panorama", "TV News Service". For 11 years, she was the host of the program "Today" on NTV.
Tatiana has created documentaries about Muslim Magomayev and Oleg Lundstrem.
Today Mitkova is 65 years old. She is the editor-in-chief of the NTV Information Service. Tatiana does not like to talk about her personal life. It is only known that she is married for the second time, and from her first husband she has an adult son. There is also a grandson. In her spare time, Mitkova loves to play tennis, drives an extreme car, but she has a very negative attitude to alcohol and cigarettes.
The audience remembered Alla Volkova as the host of the entertainment show "Love at First Sight". Her partner was Boris Hook. The program lasted for 8 years and was very popular: after all, we have never seen anything like this before!
Almost everyone considered the presenters husband and wife, so organically they looked in the frame. However, they were just partners. After the closure of the program, in 1999, Alla Volkova married for the third time. It is known that she then worked as an English teacher at a school. According to some sources, today she works as the editor of " What? Where? When? " and other programs of the production center "Igra-TV". Alla has two adult sons.
In the early 90s, everyone was crazy about Ksenia Strizh: this energetic girl invited the most interesting artists to her program "At Ksenia's", asked interesting questions, and looked like a star herself!
In addition to "At Ksenia's", Strizh also hosted other programs — "50/50", "Good Night", " How to find a husband?", "Night Rendezvous" ... And in the late 90s, she suddenly left television for radio — there she felt more at ease.
However, problems soon began — according to some reports, the radio station's management took a strong dislike to the presenter after she wrote a letter of resignation — the girl wanted to change her job. It came to open threats, then unknown people set fire to her apartment, stole her car... It did not work out to part with the radio station in a good way, we had to solve the case through the court.
All this pretty messed up Ksyusha and nerves, and reputation. Around the same time, she lost her beloved father, actor Yuri Volyntsev. To cope with the nervous tension, the girl began to drink alcohol.
However, after a while everything got better, the black streak was left behind. And today, her main place of work is radio, although on TV Ksenia also appears. In one of the TV shows, Ksenia unpleasantly surprised the audience with her appearance: she looked much older than her years.
When she was offered plastic surgery as part of the show "10 years younger", she agreed: after all, her new, fifth, husband was 16 years younger, and the woman wanted to match!
Anti-aging procedures went to Ksenia's benefit: fans noted that now she looks great. Ksenia has been married several times, but she has no children. The most famous novel is Strizh with the leader of the group "Time Machine" Andrey Makarevich. With her current husband, Ksenia, according to some media reports, took a teenage boy from the Chelyabinsk orphanage.
From 1993 to 2000, Elena Masyuk worked on the NTV channel. This fragile girl took on her shoulders a dangerous non-feminine job — she was reporting from "hot spots", the hottest of which was at that time Chechnya. She once interviewed Shamil Basayev, for which the Prosecutor General's Office opened a case against her.
Without thinking about the danger, she drove to the epicenter of the fighting to get the truthful information and show the audience an exclusive. And one day she, along with the cameraman and sound engineer, was captured and taken to the mountains.
A few months later, the film crew was bought out for a lot of money. Elena Masyuk continued to work on TV for some time, in 2005 she became a teacher of the journalism faculty of Moscow State University, and then-a columnist for Novaya Gazeta. Elena is currently shooting a documentary for the Russia Today channel.
