In 2007, she rose to further fame with the RTL dance show called Let’s Dance. After competing in the second and the third seasons, she became a judge in 2011.
Another milestone in her career was the German Latin Dance that she was preparing for years. Partnering up with Ukrainian dancer Evgenij Voznyuk, she won the contest in 2013.
The year also saw her divorce from Kulzcak and the launch of her book about her life in Germany. She began a relationship with Voznyuk in 2015 and married to him 2 years later.
