From Germany, Katya Barnabas arrived in beautiful things and with colorful toys. Moscow peers, accustomed to the empty store shelves, did not see such luxury and considered that Katya was showing off. As a result, the girl became an outcast. She was avoided for a long time, and the schoolgirl sincerely did not understand why. Only now she knows where the children's dislike came from.

Then it was time to move to a new level, change something, but nothing happened. He could not decide what he wanted, but he did not seduce me as an eternal lover. And we broke up. Having finished that novel, I concluded that I would no longer have anything like it. A married man is not for me. ”

Ekaterina Barnabas: biography

The artist was born on December 9, 1984 in the family of a soldier, while her mother worked as a general practitioner. In connection with the work of his father, the family moved, and for a long time lived in the German city of Wünsdorf, which at that time housed groups of Soviet troops. Catherine lived there from the first year of her life until her seventh birthday. There she finished only the first grade, and already from the second she began to attend a Moscow school.

At first, Katya was an outcast. The thing is that she has a lot of things bought in Germany: beautiful clothes and bright toys. The children envied her and believed that the new one was showing off.

For a long time, the girl did not understand why this was happening and what she was doing wrong, because she had no problems with her classmates at the last school. Little Katya tried to win peer love, she was friendly and joked a lot. In the future, a sense of humor came in handy for her.

Star way

The child was given to ballroom dancing, and Katya's abilities were rated quite high. However, at the age of 14, she suffered a spinal injury, and she had to forget about the career of a professional dancer. Without leaving thoughts of choreography, Catherine tries to enter the University of Culture, and when she doesn’t succeed, she decides to study at the Law Department of MISiS. In addition to studying, the girl became interested in KVN and since 2003 she has become a member of the team “My Secrets”, and a little later - “National Team of Small Peoples”. Over the years, she played for both teams and even performed in the Higher League of KVN. After the failure, both teams ceased to exist.

Her fans always want to know more about their idol: if Ekaterina Barnava has a husband and children, if there is no husband, then who is her fiancé, and, of course, all the juicy details of her personal life. The first serious relationship that fell into the sight of paparazzi cameras, Katya had a married man. However, the couple broke up after 2 years. After Catherine began to speak in the Comedy Woman team, Dmitry Khrustalev, a colleague in the workshop, claimed her hand and heart. The artists carefully concealed their relationship from journalists, but as you know, all the secret becomes clear.

Dmitry Khrustalev and Ekaterina Barnava

Khrustalev made an offer to Catherine Barnabas, but the lovers never reached the registry office. Moreover, in 2013 their romance ended. At that time, Catherine worked in tandem with the dancer Yevgeny Borodenko, emotional performances of the artists suggested that between them and in life there are the same relationships that they represent on stage. The situation was “aggravated” by the fact that the popular comedian often posted their joint photos on her blog. And when a slender girl, which everyone was accustomed to seeing Catherine on stage, had a barely noticeable rounded tummy, what could her fans and paparazzi have suggested? “She's expecting a baby.”

Barnava herself, in response to frank questions from journalists, said that she has professional and purely friendly relations with Yevgeny Borodenko. No more. Refuting the speculation about the children, Catherine Barnabas admitted that she has long been dating a man whom he considers to be the man of her dreams, but does not want to reveal his name in the media.

Soon, fate brought them together again. This happened on the show "Dance", where Konstantin acted as a participant in the project, and Catherine was his host. The romance of two talented young people prompted Catherine's fans to the idea that their first meeting at Comedy Woman did not end simply with a working relationship. Allegedly, it was she who led to the transition from tender feelings to friendship between Barnabas and Khrustalev.In one of her interviews, the actress herself did not comment on the speculations of fans and journalists, but admitted that today a serious relationship had been established between her and Konstantin Myakinkov. It is not the first year they have been in a civil marriage and are making plans for the future.

2016 made adjustments to the news column about Russian stars of show business: the novel by Ekaterina Barnava and Konstantin Myakinkov, according to the information of ubiquitous journalists, supposedly ended in a wedding. The news talked about the secret wedding of Catherine and Constantine, and that the young wife openly wears a ring on her ring finger. Indeed, on her Instagram page, Barnabas posted a photo where she makes purchases in a store, and a ringlet flaunts on the ring finger of her right hand. However, the conjectures of her subscribers Catherine ignored. It was in the video of Anna Sedokova that he and Konstantin happened to play the role of the bride and groom, and in life they are still a couple in love.


Since 2003, Catherine participated in the KVN. At the same time, she made her television debut. However, Catherine gained real popularity after the release of the TV show "Comedy Woman" on TNT. In this television program, Catherine acts as the "sex symbol of the show."

It is worth noting that her appearance is spectacular: Catherine is slender and leggy (the height of the artist is 181 cm, and weight 63 kg). Thanks to external data, combined with heels and revealing outfits, Barnabas stands out from the rest of the show. In addition, the girl is also a television program choreographer.

After the success of the Comedy Woman show, the girl took part in many other projects: NTV in the morning, Battle of the Choirs and Dance, and was also a TV presenter of the Ukrainian comedy show Who's on Top.

It’s not uncommon to see Ekaterina in advertising: she starred in the commercials for Gloria Jeans clothes for the online shoe store Sapato. Photos of the artist can be seen on buses in Moscow and St. Petersburg - an advertisement for Loko-Bank.

In recent years, Catherine decided to try herself as an actress. On her account episodic roles in such sitcoms as “Happy Together”, “Deffchonki” and “Univer”, as well as more prominent roles in full-length comedies: “8 First Dates”, “Double Trouble”, “Zomboyaschik”.

Filming in advertising

In the fall of 2013, she took part in the filming of an advertising campaign for the online shoe store Sapato.ru as the main character of the video.

In August 2016, three times took part in the filming of advertising for the Gloria Jeans chain of stores.

Since 2017, he has been an advertising person for Loko-Bank.

Naked Catherine Barnabas

In 2010, Catherine received an invitation to star in Maxim magazine. At that time she was 25 years old. The girl for a long time did not dare to openly shoot, as she was afraid of not understanding and condemnation from her strict parents, but nevertheless agreed to a photo shoot.

Parents were sympathetic to their daughter’s decision, but after the magazine went on sale, his father bought up a large number of magazines so that they would not go to anyone else. Then, in 2012, Barnabas also starred for another men's magazine, XXL.

Catherine Barnabas took photos for magazines before the alleged plastic changes, after which she has not yet been shot.

Plastic surgery and the appearance of Catherine Barnabas

Catherine Barnabas always tries to look spectacular. You can’t see her on TV without bright makeup and false eyelashes.

The first surgical changes in appearance could be noticed in 2011: the girl’s lips significantly increased volume. When compared with old photographs, the difference becomes obvious. Now more and more girls are resorting to lip augmentation with fillers, let alone the stars. The girl admitted openly about these injections.

But the comedian did not stop there: most likely she changed the shape of her eyebrows and made rhinoplasty. The nose of the TV star began to look neater and more elegant, and the eyebrows were more expressive.

Barnabas Catherine before and after plastic surgery (photos prove this) had a different shape of lips. After several years of use, she still removed the fillers. Now the lips of the artist look natural and do not distract attention.

In 2015, the most noticeable changes occurred in the girl's appearance. But the point is not in plastic surgery, but in losing 10 kilograms. She achieved this result by eliminating animal protein from the diet.

Now she also refused to eat fish and seafood. With her fans, the artist shares the secrets of harmony and says that the path to a beautiful figure is vegetarianism and green tea. Thanks to this diet, she manages to keep fit and not starve.

Barnabas Catherine before and after plastic surgery - photos appeared on the network and again became an occasion for heated debate. After losing weight of the artist, fans began to discuss that for sure the matter was not limited to this, and she nevertheless fell under the surgeon’s knife. The fact is that the facial features of the girl became sharper, cheekbones expressive, and sunken cheeks.

This result can be achieved by removing lumps of Bisha surgically. Using blepharoplasty, you can tighten the upper or lower eyelid. And judging by the fact that Catherine’s eyes were miraculously smoothed, we can conclude about the operation.

Approximate prices for these procedures in Moscow clinics:

  • Fillers on the lips - from 40 thousand rubles.
  • Eyebrow plastic surgery - from 50 thousand rubles.
  • Rhinoplasty - from 50 to 300 thousand rubles.
  • Removal of lumps of Bish - from 50 to 80 thousand rubles.
  • Blepharoplasty - about 50 thousand rubles.

If Catherine Barnabas did all these operations, then it cost her about 400 thousand rubles. However, the girl really did these procedures with her face or not - remains a mystery.

The opinion of experts and ordinary people

Surgeons do not doubt that there was surgical intervention in the appearance of the artist, but they say that in many respects the changes are associated with weight loss. This is noticeable when comparing photographs before losing weight and after, where the girl was shot at full height. And most likely Catherine didn’t do a facelift - she’s not yet at that age, when this only requires surgical intervention.

Doctors also question the removal of Bisha's lumps. Given that the girl has lost a lot of weight and has an obvious underweight (with an increase of 181 cm the weight is about 70 kg, Barnabas weighs almost a dozen less), it’s not surprising that her cheeks fell inside and her cheekbones became more noticeable.

Changing the nose could also be due to weight loss. The experienced gaze of the doctor notes that the back and tip of the nose have not changed. Most likely, the nose became sharper as well due to weight loss.

Doctors do not doubt the change in the shape of the lips, but the girl does not deny it. It is noticeable that she made lip correction with fillers with hyaluronic acid.

A smooth forehead gives injections of botulinum toxins. Perhaps, contour plastic surgery of the face in the area of ​​the cheekbones was also done.

Barnava Catherine (before and after plastic surgery) - the photo shared the views of fans: some believe that a girl, and even more a media person, should always look after herself and keep attractive and improve her appearance in all possible ways. Others are sure that Catherine "went too far" with this, and now she is not recognized at all, and subscribers on social networks even ask her to stop.

Ekaterina Barnabas today

Now Catherine is actively sharing her life with fans through Instagram (kativarnava). Every now and then the artist is credited with new plastic surgeries, but the girl denies everything. Also, some think that she "went too far" with weight loss and now she has anorexia. But Catherine assures that everything is fine with her, and in her life finally came harmony.

Recently, the artist began to often change eye color with lenses. By nature, she has dark brown eyes, but in recent photoshoots and pictures on the network she can often be seen with gray or blue eyes. And often because of such changes with the eyes, the girl simply cannot be recognized.

She also experimented with hair: before Barnabas was a burning brunette, now she has lightened her hair. The warm shade of the blonde successfully combines with dark eyes and eyebrows. Fans noticed that in the new image, the artist is similar to Svetlana Loboda or Tatyana Navka.

Catherine denies that she changed her appearance with a scalpel and claims that she is just carefully watching herself. However, the photos before and after the plastic surgery of Catherine Barnabas make one doubt the veracity of these words.
