To our colleagues, Mireille Dumas also spoke of the year 2011, during which she was thanked by the France Télévisions group and the professional offers she had received and to which she did not respond positively. “I’ve been offered a lot of things, including talk show columnist contracts,” she explained, specifying that she also had a proposal to shoot advertisements, each more astonishing than the next: “From glasses to diapers, and household”. Enough to “to be proud” since she knew how to say no, to concentrate on her real job as a facilitator and documentary maker.
“I will never be on air again”
In the columns of Sunday newspaper, Mireille Dumas then returned to the reason why she left her television career behind. “As for the antenna, I didn’t want to go back there: I twice lived the trauma of having to separate myself from teams in my small independent production company. She was on the precipice when these broadcasts stopped. And when, in addition, you learn it at the bend of a corridor. Once, okay; twice, it’s painful. So a third, no way. I will never be on air again “, she concluded, categorically.
