Potential employers, by her own admission, Madame Odintsova, saw in her only a narrow-minded blonde who is being promoted by an influential boyfriend.
“18 years ago, life seemed very complicated. I gave birth to two children from a man who never married me. I had a hard time settling in Moscow. After success and prosperity in her native Nizhny Novgorod, she could not find a decent job in the capital. I was asked to resign from the host of the NTV nighttime news broadcasts after learning about my relationship with Nemtsov. Borya tried to help me with my work, he asked someone for me, but that only got in the way. The status of the politician’s mistress overshadowed even my diploma with honors from Moscow State University, ”she said in her personal blog.
Once Nemtsov suggested that Alexander Tsekalo take Catherine under his wing. But then it didn’t work out to work with the producer – Tsekalo was skeptical of Madame Odintsova, considered her a dummy.

“I remember how Borya asked Alexander Tsekalo, who was then head of STS, to invite me for an interview. I have never felt so unpleasant in my life. Tsekalo looked at me with disbelief, talked with a trick, and at the end added: “Here we have not only to walk beautifully, but also to work. The crown will not fall off the head? ” I left with an unpleasant aftertaste and didn’t ask Borya for help with work anymore, ”recalled the 48-year-old businesswoman.
After some time, fate brought the beloved politician and Alexander together again.
“A few years later I was a screenwriter for a show hosted by Tsekalo. Before the start, there was a run of the script. I went over to check if he understood everything in the text. He asked who wrote all those cool jokes. I modestly admitted that this is my work. “I’m a fool, I didn’t take you to work then! I thought, another protege, a beautiful chick, you can’t make you work! My advice to you, Katya: never use the patronage of men in love in your career. This only prevents you from evaluating your talents, and you have plenty of them! The script is fire! ” That evening, Tsekalo, together with Ivan Urgant, joked my jokes from the stage, and I blissed out that no one brought me this success on a saucer, ”concluded Ekaterina Odintsova.
