Patty Brard's book will include details about the Brazes incident

Patty and Bridget were once good colleagues on SBS6. But this time is over...

Last weekend, Bridget Maasland and André Hazes broke up. The Dutch tabloid press announced this news yesterday. 

The two celebrities made their love story public in November. They shared many pictures on Instagram

The start of the "Brazes" relationship three months ago was turbulent. Dutch celebrity gossip magazine Privé revealed that the couple had already had a secret romance during Patty Brard's wedding party in 2014. At the time, André was not single. Bridget sued Privé in December but she lost the lawsuit. 

Recently, Patty told more about the "Brazes" case. On March 25th, on the day of her 65th birthday, her biography will be published and will include details about Bridget and André's behaviour at her wedding party. "If you buy my book you will know exactly what happened. Of course, I have an opinion on this story. It was MY wedding. I think what they did was not classy. I don't want to give further details," the diva told SBS6's entertainment news program "Shownieuws".

Between 2013 and 2016, Bridget and Patty clicked. They worked successfully together on Shownieuws. Their last collaboration was an episode of Net5's reality series "De Wereld Rond In 6 Stappen" (see news posted on June 7th, 2016). Afterwards, the two TV presenters were not on good terms.

Patty & Gordon's TV show: out of SKO's Top 25!!!

Yesterday, the second episode of "Patty en Gordon op zoek naar de eeuwige jeugd" (SBS6's reality show featuring Patty Brard and Gordon) drew 433.000 viewers (market share: 7.6%). The program even disappeared from SKO's Dag Top 25 (the daily list of the 25 most popular programs conceived by Dutch audience measurement company Stichting KijkOnderzoek). These are disappointing viewing figures for such a prime-time TV show.

For the purpose of this program, the two TV personalities travelled the world to look for healthy methods to find eternal youth. The second episode took place in Japan.

Other TV shows scored better ratings:
  • Radar on NPO 11.176.000 viewers/market share: 20.7%
  • Married at first sight on RTL 41.005.000 viewers/market share: 17.6%
  • Veronica Inside on Veronica: 617.000 viewers/market share: 11.4%

Patty Brard in Story: the diva discusses Luv' and Bridget & André's secret romance!

The latest issue of Story magazine features an article about Patty Brard. The SBS6 diva discussed Luv' and the Bridget Maasland and André Hazes' secret romance at her wedding in 2014.

Just before the announcement of Luv's break-up, Patricia Paay was approached to know if she wanted to replace José Hoebee who had been ill since late August. La Paay refused to join the group (see news posted on January 29th, 2020). Story asked Patty what her opinion about this surprising news was. "Well, they know that I'm not interested in being part of the group anymore. But when the news about Patricia being asked to join Luv' was announced in the media, I received a message from her. She wrote: "Listen, you won't believe what they asked me. Do they really think I'm going to do it?" She also told me that she never spoke to the journalist (Jan Uriot from De Telegraaf/Privé) who wrote the article. I believe her. Marga has always been good at generating publicity. She always tries to make the others look bad. Marga is said to do the dirty work in Luv' but that's the only thing she can do," Patty explained. 

La Brard also talked about Bridget Maasland and André Hazes' romance during her wedding party in 2014. At the time, André was not single. This secret love affair caused a sensation in the Dutch tabloid press. Bridget even went to court and declared that she only French kissed André. Witnesses told instead that the TV presenter's underwear ended up around her ankles. Of course, Patty knew what really happened that night. "I don't want to talk about it. But I think it's brave to ignore the facts," the ex-Luv' singer told.
