New York, Mar 16: An Austrian TV host has announced her resignation from showbiz to take care of terminally ill patients, by posing nude for the April edition of Playboy.
According to the Sun, Cathy Zimmerman, 31, has appeared in a local version of 'Dancing with the Stars' and has also hosted shows on two Austrian channels.
The inspiration for the career change came last year, when she helped nurse her mother through an emergency operation, the New York Daily News reported.
Zimmermann said that something changed inside her and now she tries to separate herself from everything that makes her feel bad whether that is wrong friends, relationships, jobs, as she doesn't want anything to stop her.
Zimmermann said she received training from the Caritas, a humanitarian organization that is run by the Catholic Church.
She said that now she spends her time volunteering at hospices in Vienna as a palliative care assistant. (ANI)
