Daniela Denise Katzenberger (born 1 October 1986) is a German reality TV personality, actress, restaurateur, singer, television presenter, and model. She released her first single in August 2010, a version of Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now which reached No.19 on the German single charts. Since September 2010, she has had her own show on German TV channel VOX, entitled Daniela Katzenberger - natürlich blond.


Early life and beginnings[edit]

Daniela Katzenberger was born and raised in Ludwigshafen am Rhein. After secondary school she trained and qualified as a beautician.

Katzenberger won the title of Top Model of the World Mallorca in 2009. Her mother, Iris Klein, was a participant in the 10th season of the German version of TV show Big Brother.

She became famous through the docu-soap Auf und davon – Mein Auslandstagebuch on VOX which has aired since April 2009. The broadcast showed how Katzenberger tried to meet Hugh Hefner and be featured in the American Playboy, neither of which succeeded. During the second season, she underwent plastic surgery.

She has also been featured in the broadcasts MTV Home and at the VIVA Comet Awards 2010. After appearing in the docu-soap, she did some semi-nude photo shoots in Germany and the United States.

Her trademark was eyebrows in permanent make-up, placed too high on her forehead. Their removal by laser was also reported on the channel VOX. Another typical feature is her manner of speaking, a characteristic dialect spoken in the area she lives in (the Palatinate). Using this dialect she created several nicknames for parts of her body matched by her self-deprecating sense of humor.

She signed a recording contract with EMI in May 2010 and her first single, a cover of Samantha Fox's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now" was released.[4] The song reached number 19 in the German charts and number 14 in Austria. The song was released as a digital download and audio CD in August 2010. She has her own show on the German TV channel VOX, entitled "Daniela Katzenberger - natürlich blond". This started airing on 21 September 2010.[5]
