Roy Donders and Patty present their duet single at the "Polonaise 2017" show

On January 19th, Roy Donders and Patty Brard performed their duet single "Wat zijn ze lekker" for the first time during the taping for the TV show "Polonaise 2017" of "Hart voor Muziek" at the Witte Huis in Zeeland, NL. 

The text of this Carnival song is a shining example of double entendre: "Wat zijn ze lekker, wat zijn ze groot. Twintig centimeter, Brabants worstenbrood" ("They taste so good, they are so big. 20 centimeters of Brabants sausage roll"). 

Roy and Patty came up with this idea for a while. "We've been in touch for a couple of years," La Brard told Dutch local TV channel "Omroep Brabant" before her performance. "Anytime we met, I giggled just because I saw him".

"Since day one we've had lots of fun. It's important to enjoy what you do," Roy explained. 

The audience seemed to appreciate their duet. "They even sang along," Patty said.

Patty is warning Virginia against Peter Jan Rens

Virginia & Peter Jan Rens

In her latest column for Weekend Magazine, Patty Brard warns Virginia (wife of Dutch media personality Peter Jan Rens) against her husband. Currently, the couple appears on a reality show on RTL 5 about the preparations for their wedding. Apparently Peter Jan Rens is heavily indebted and once married Virginia might be responsible for 50% of his debts. Patty hopes that the young woman will contact a lawyer to anticipate a bad situation. 

This risky position reminds Patty of her money problems with her third husband during the broadcast of her reality show "Patty's Posse" in 2003-2004.

Free Dutch newspaper "Metro" even published an interview with the ex-Luv' singer discussing this unique experience in its January 13th edition (Thanks Hans R. de Vries for the tip!!!). The diva admitted that Michelle found herself in a difficult position and that "Vier Handen Op Een Buik" had been exhausting.
