Patty Brard often appears on the early evening edition (aka "Zomereditie" (summer edition) of SBS6's entertainment news program "Shownieuws".
During the June 27th broadcast (240.000 viewers/market share: 6%), Patty and her team criticized Ruud van Os, editor-in-chief of the local station Radio Rijnmond, after he fired the controversial media personality Johan Derksen. A couple of months ago, Derksen told on SBS6's talk show "Vandaag Inside" that during his career at Veendam football club, he and the goalkeeper had "penetrated an unconscious woman with a candle"; according to Derksen "technically a prosecutor could have seen the act as rape." Derksen qualified the incident as a "youthful error". The following day, several prominent Dutch people stated that Derksen should be banned from TV. Dutch prosecutors did an open inquiry "to establish the truth of possible criminal behaviour that was discussed on that program". Derksen refused to apologize. On April 27th, he did retract the sexual assault story, claiming he had not penetrated the woman but had put a candle between her legs. The criminal inquiry into the case was closed on June 2nd. Prosecutors had questioned Derksen, but the case was dismissed due to the facts could not be established. The alleged victim was not questioned because she had not been identified. On June 27th, Derksen told Shownieuws Zomereditie that he was about to host his own show on Radio Veronica. This announcement felt like a rehabilitation. Patty was happy that a national station recruited him after his dismissal by a local broadcaster.
On June 28th, it was reported that pop singer Waylon boycotted Shownieuws after Patty's comments on his infidelity on June 17th.
During the June 29th broadcast of Shownieuws Zomereditie (254.000 viewers/market share: 8.4%), the former Luv' singer discussed the reality TV show "Real Housewives of Amsterdam".
