|Former American Model, Wife of Carl Bernstein
Christine Kuehbeck is a good example that you can be a former model in the US, but people will still recognize you for your husband. She is an American former model, yet, she achieved fame because of her marriage to investigative journalist, Carl Bernstein.
The two have been married since 2003, and seem to enjoy their life together. Do you want to know more about Christine? How she and Carl began their relationship? What she worked before? Can you find her on social media? Let’s discuss this.
Who Is Her Husband?
Born Carl Milton Bernstein in February 1944, he is an American investigative journalist and author. Bernstein got famous for the Watergate scandal. At the time, he was a young reporter working for The Washington Post in 1972. He teamed up with Bob Woodward, and the two did much of the original news reporting on Watergate.
Born to a secular Jewish family in Washington, DC, he was the son of Sylvia Walker and Alfred Bernstein. Both of his parents were civil-rights activists and members of the Communist Party USA in the 1940s.
Carl attended Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Maryland. At the age of 16, he began his journalism career by becoming a copyboy for The Washington Post and moved quickly through the ranks.
As a young reporter, on a Saturday in June 1972, Bernstein was assigned along with Bob Woodward, to cover a break-in at the Watergate office complex. The break-in happened earlier the same morning, with five burglars being caught red-handed in the complex.
One of them turned out to be an ex-CIA agent who did security work for the Republicans. In their stories, Bernstein and Woodward connected the burglars to a massive slush fund and a corrupt attorney general.
Bernstein suspected that President Nixon was involved, and he found a laundered check that linked Nixon to the burglary. Their discoveries led to further investigation into the Nixon administration and the president. President Richard Nixon later resigned to avoid facing impeachment.
Two years later, in 1974, after the Watergate burglary and two months, before Nixon resigned, Carl and Bob released the book All the President’s Men. It contained articles and notes about the scandal that they wrote for Post.
In 1975, the book was turned into a movie starring Dustin Hoffman as Bernstein and Robert Redford as Woodward. The movie would go on to earn several Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations.
In 1977, Bernstein left the Post and expanded into other areas. He joined broadcast news during a high growth period and worked at ABC, CNN, and CBS as a political commentator. Bernstein also began investigating the secret cooperation between the CIA and American media during the Cold War.
Nowadays, he is a frequent guest and analyst on television news programs. Since the Watergate scandal, he continued to focus on the theme of the use and abuse of power via books and magazine articles.
Now let’s take a look back at his celebrity spouse, Christine Kuehbeck. She is an former American model who achieved fame through her marriage to Carl. The two have been married since 2003 and enjoy their life together.
Sadly, a lot of the information before her marriage has been removed from the Internet. There is nothing about her childhood, early life, educational background, or even professional career.
Christine is a rather secretive person when it comes to her biography. According to some sources, she was born in 1949 to Warren Meyerhoff.
Yet, further information or confirmation about her parents, siblings, and early life is not available.
Marriage To Carl
While she worked as a model, her fame rose when she got married to journalist Carl Bernstein. He has been married before. His first marriage was to a fellow reporter at The Post, Carol Honsa. She was his first wife, but that marriage didn’t last long.
His second wife was writer and director Nora Ephron, and the two were married from 1976 to 1980. During that marriage, he met Margaret Jay, daughter of then British Prime Minister James Callaghan and wife of Peter Jay, then UK ambassador to the United States. Carl and Margaret had a much-publicized extramarital relationship in 1979.
Bernstein had a son with his second wife, Nora. At the time, he had his son Jacob, and she was pregnant with their second son, Max. After finding out about her husband’s affair and infidelity, Ephron delivered Max prematurely.
But that served as inspiration for him to write the 1983 novel Heartburn, which was made into a movie in 1986. Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep starred in the leading roles.
In the 1980s, he dated Bianca Jagger, Martha Stewart, and Elizabeth Taylor.
But things changed when he met Christine in his later days. Her life changed as well as she was successfully hidden from the public. Since then, she managed to hide all the major information about her life.
Even her professional career has been hidden, despite being a successful model in her youth. She is his third wife, and they have often been spotted together. They even have shared pictures on social media platforms.
In 2005, the couple experienced a minor discomfort. Christine’s former boyfriend, Jeffrey Silver, sued her and Carl for $13 million. He claimed they allegedly destroyed his reputation. But all went well for the couple.
They are parents of Bernstein’s children with his second wife, the late Nora Ephron. His almost 20 years of marriage with Christine have not produced any children. But they do not mind it and enjoy their life together.
Is She On Social Media?
Christine remains secretive about her life. There is little to no information about her life. And the former American model deliberately chooses not to use any social media platform.
Her husband, on the other hand, is active on Instagram, a picture-sharing social media platform. He has almost 3k followers on the platform.
His info reads, Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalist, Proud Father of Jacob and Max.
As you can assume, the information about the net worth of Christine remains hidden. Being a successful American model in her youth, you can assume she has earned a decent amount of money.
According to some sources, she has a net worth of close to $1 million. But that is nothing compared to the wealth of her husband.
Over the years, Carl has become one of the most successful investigative journalists. That has helped him amass a huge amount of money. Per some sources, he has a net worth of $16 million. And with every new book and increased sales, Carl increases his wealth.
