* Last weekend, Bride-to-be Patty Brard was "kidnapped" by her friends who organized a bachelorette party in London. The ladies had lots of fun. The diva posted a nice picture on social media:

* Yesterday, the former Luv' singer was the guest on RTL 4's morning show "Koffietijd" (which drew 210.000 viewers / market share: 26.7%). She discussed several subjects (including her widely publicized wedding with Antoine van de Vijver and her latest reality show on SBS 6). All of a sudden, former TV host, coach and entrepeneur Carlo Strijk (one of my Facebook friends) appeared on the program with a shirtless young man to give Patty a special award. La Brard was proclaimed "Homomoeder 2014". Recently, Dutch website Gay.nl conducted a poll to choose Holland's most popular female celebrity in the gay community. In addition to Patty, the other nominees were Ilse de Lange, Raffaëla Paton, Anita Meijer and ex-Luv' colleague José Hoebee. The "Homomoeder" is most of the time a leading lady over 40. Carlo gave a good speech on gay rights in the world (homophobia in Russia, Africa and even in the Netherlands). Miss Brard was honoured to be the ambassador of the Dutch LGBT community. No wonder that she won this prize as she took part in many gay events (including Amsterdam Gay Pride and the Roze Maandag) and often expressed her opinion on gay issues.

* Just after "Koffietijd", the larger than life entertainer and her fiancé went to Amstelveen's town hall to sign their "Ondertrouw" (which refers to the statutory requirement in the Netherlands to register the intention to marry). Click here and here to watch videos about this special moment.
