On K. Michelle My Life, K. Michelle gets set up with an artist who claims the name Prince Mario Max Schaumburg Lippe. Not all of K.’s friends are buying into the Prince title. K. eventually gets annoyed with all his regalness, too. “This prince thing is just annoying,” K. tells him, as she points to the crown on his t-shirt. He puts his hand over his heart, “I got this from my fan club president,” he says. K. tells him, “I just don’t know who you are, it’s just weird.” He recites his name to her again, “that’s who I am.” K. walks out.

According to Wikipedia, at the age of 31, Mario Max Schaumburg Lippe was adopted by Danish Prince Waldemar of Schaumburg-Lippe. Prince Waldemar married Mario’s mother, Gertraud-Antonia Wagner-Schoppl in 2008 — that’s when Mario Max legally changed his name from Mario-Helmut Wagner to Mario Max Schaumburg Lippe. (Mario Max’s father is Dr. Helmut Wagner.) K. Michelle My Life airs Mondays at 10pm on VH1.
