Adela Banášová, now Adela Vinczeová, is a well-known Slovak presenter, who probably doesn’t need to be introduced in more detail. A few years ago, she won the hearts of the audience with her interesting expression and sense of humour when hosting the Czech-Slovak singing competition SuperStar. In an interview for LP-Life.com, Adéla spoke to us about how she was doing, what her lockdown life was like, what her husband enchanted her with, with whom she would like to have a relationship, and she even had some amazing news to share.
You and your husband Viktor belong to the most exemplary couples of Slovak show business. How do you feel about the ten-year age difference between you, now that you’ve been together for a while?
We are hardly even aware of it anymore. It took me a very short time to say "yes" to him, it happened after mere months of dating.
Viki is a very wise man with the right perspective. He doesn’t let things needlessly trouble him, which is an attitude we share with each other. We enjoy life and focus on the things that bring us pleasure. In short, living with such a person is very pleasant.
He tells me everything I need to be told. And even if he tells me something unpleasant every now and then, it's always what I need to hear.
I don’t have time for any. But I’ve got a new Instagram account to take care of, for the show Trochu jinak (A Bit Differently), where I’m creating a parallel universe in stories and I enjoy it. It's creative. Due to the closure of the Slovak National Theater, the show "Trochu jinak" also went online and it's a good thing that it got its own communication platform on Instagram. But in stories, I usually create my own tales. Otherwise yoga, fitness, simply put some form of physical exercise.
The kitchen belongs to anyone who enjoys being there. For a long time that has been me, but a few weeks ago Viktor took command.
You are a successful presenter not only in Slovakia but also in the Czech Republic. You started using the surname Vinczeová, which some have not yet fully adapted to. Let's mention, for example, the host of Showtime on FTV Prima Petr Vágner, who misnamed you, or the actress and your friend Tereza Kostková. What happened in her case?
I don't even know what Tereza said anymore, I’ve forgotten about it. But Peter introduced me as "Vinczenzová." I think that's a very nice version of my name. It didn't mind it at all. It's funny and I enjoy the different versions of me.
It has long been publicly known that you and your husband are longing to have a child together. Are you still considering adoption?
We have been in the adoption process for about a year. A lot has been written about it. But I don't know if "longing" is the right word. I’d rather say that we’re creating an opportunity. We are satisfied with what we have, we aren’t in the habit of blaming life for writing its own script for us.
As a kid, I used to play-pretend being on the radio for fun, but becoming a presenter wasn’t my goal. It came gradually. But basically, everything that develops from a child’s play is a source of joy.
It depends on what you consider luxury. Nowadays, having access to drinking water can be considered a luxury. I, for one, am grateful to have that. And in the general sense of the word, I like quality, even luxurious restaurants, for example.
I practice yoga or I do my work out at home. Before Covid, I used to go to the gym and had a coach. Currently, I’m adding more long walks, which have become the only form of socialization with my friends. Of course in a limited number and in face masks.
Viktor Vincze. I also really like Sajfa, Dan Dangl, Filip Túma, Juraj Čurný, Martin Nikodým, Evelyn, Zuzka Šebová ... I could go on forever. But I guess only a few are my true friends. Thanks to the joint tour of ONA and ON (SHE and HE), I also have a very special personal relationship with Richard Müller.
Bývalých vztahů nelituji. Všechny byly důležité a daly mi hodně do života. S Péťou Modrovským i s Tomášem si píšeme k svátku, můj vztah k nim je jenom kladný.
Leos is very open, honest and spontaneous. He's a phenomenon. I admit that it has often been a refreshing co-hosting challenge. Cooperating with him definitely gave me a boost.
I don’t regret my former relationships. They were all important and gave me a lot of experience. With Péta Modrovský and Tomáš, we exchange birthday wishes, my relationship with them is nothing but positive.
I quite enjoy both. I like interviews as such, because something develops in them and you refine your thoughts or open new horizons.
At the beginning of a presenter gig, I always feel this inner tension. But I don't let myself be overwhelmed by fear. I always tell myself the good old saying: "No need to worry, cause nobody cares about you anyway."
I'd rather call it a procedure. It was conization. Personally, I don't consider it a difficult period. I had a nice rest. But I'm glad that I was going for regular check-ups and still do, thanks to which the problem was caught at a time when it could be easily dealt with. Women should not underestimate this.
I often dream of nuclear explosions, but that’s been filmed many times. But recently, I had this dream in which such strange entities had stolen my duvet through the window, that could be interesting.
Groundhog Day. It's an amazing and funny lesson about everything in life that can change our attitude to a given situation.
