* On July 8th, Vrouw (a women's magazine, supplement to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf) featured an interview with Patty Brard. The diva told that she was not interested in an exclusive contract with a TV network anymore. In September her deal with SBS 6 will come to an end. She only wants to focus on one-off TV projects. She explained that she left SBS because of her age. "After I've been told: "this program is OK but you're not fresh and young enough for that!", I started to laugh, then I cried," she said. "They can call me back for something good but I will never let them offend me anymore," she asserted.
