Pic: Luv' @ Sluis en Bruggenfeest (1978)

On August 25th, Dutch news website weespernieuws.nl posted an article about the infamous show of Luv's original trio at the festival "Sluis en Bruggenfeest" in Weesp, NL in 1978. Patty Brard, Marga Scheide and José Hoebee were obliged to interrupt their performance after some stupid people threw eggs to them. 

Of course I'm not happy about what happened to them but I appreciate this picture taken during their short performance. The ladies wore their "Greatest Lover" Indian outfits. Such photos are rare on internet.

Jörgen Raymann: ‘Patty Brard is not racist’

Jörgen Raymann

Dutch entertainer and media personality Jörgen Raymann comes to Patty Brard's rescue after the scandal caused by her discriminatory comments towards Ajouad El Miloudi which were censored on "Ranking the Stars" (see news on August 26th, 2016). 

In yesterday's edition of Dutch newspaper "AD", Raymann (also a regular candidate on BNN's panel game) told that he did not appreciate the fact that El Miloudi accused Patty of racism. "She was joking and told him that he had to go back to Morocco. She is used to jokes about her Papuan origin and she is not racist," Raymann told. "If you know Patty, you know it has nothing to do with discrimination and racism. If you attack her, she strikes back," he added.

In late 2014, Miss Brard appeared on Raymann's late-night talk show on NPO 1 (see news posted on November 30th, 2014).

Bad start for the second season of "Met de deur in huis"

Ruben van der Meer, Patty Brard and Maik de Boer: panellists on "Met de deur in huis"

Yesterday the second season of the comedy panel game show "Met de deur in huis" (based on British TV format "Through the Keyhole") premiered on SBS 6. The TV program is hosted by Kees Tol and Tineke Schouten. It features Patty Brard, Ruben van der Meer and Maik de Boer as panellists. 

"Met de deur in huis" only drew 310.000 viewers (market share: 8.1%) according to Dutch audience measurement company "Stichting KijkOnderzoek". It lost the ratings war against other programs: "Super Freek Show" (on NPO 1914.000 viewers / market share: 22.3%) and "Gabbers" (on RTL 4609.000 viewers / market share: 14.2%).

Luv' in "Privé": bookings keep rolling in!!!

The latest issue of Dutch celebrity gossip magazine "Privé" features a short article about Luv'. Their current comeback is a success.

"I can't go to my house in Ibiza," Marga Scheide says. The legendary girl group is indeed fully booked. Public shows, private parties and corporate events are scheduled until 2017.

What a difference with Weekend magazine which told unfairly that Luv's reunion was a flop (see news posted on April 21st, 2016). 

Here's the article scanned by Luv' fan René van Ooijen:

Luv' in "Story": the ladies leave the past behind!!!

The last issue of Dutch celebrity gossip magazine "Story" features an article about Luv'. Marga Scheide explains that the girl group has plans for the future. American producer Juan Cristobal Losada (who worked previously with Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias and Shakira) is supposed to write new material for the ladies. "This year we are going to the USA to record a new album. The new sound of Luv' will be surprising. We don't hold on to the past," the singer says. Marga adds that she wants to forget the problems with Patty Brard and their former Pygmalion Hans van Hemert.

Patty's discriminatory comments censored on "Ranking the Stars"

Ajouad El Miloudi

In a recent article posted on this blog, I mentioned tensions between Patty Brard and Moroccan-Dutch media personality Ajouad El Miloudi on BNN/NPO 3's panel game "Ranking the Stars" (see news on August 17th, 2016). When asked "which celebrity deserves a street named after him/her?", Ajouad ranked Patty the last telling that "she did not mean anything for society and that she did not deserve to be honoured". This incident was a trending topic on Twitter

Earler today several Dutch news websites revealed that Patty's discriminatory remark towards her colleague ("Go back to your country!") during the taping of the game show was censored. Ajouad didn't agree with the producers of the program who cut the controversial segment. "I wanted it to be broadcast to show how Patty Brard considers Moroccans," the young man told Dutch newspaper Volkskrant

The SBS 6 star reacted on social media and wrote that Ajouad was just looking for publicity.
