Here are the latest viewing figures of SBS6's infotainment news program Shownieuws (featuring Patty Brard as a showbiz expert):
August 13th: 290.000 viewers (market share: 10.7%)
August 15th: 154.000 viewers (market share: 4.3%) - Shownieuws Zomereditie (7.30 pm summer edition)
During the August 13th broadcast, the diva discussed the latest turmoil in the Hazes family. Following her reaction to the feud between mother Rachel and daughter Roxeanne on August 12th, La Brard changed her mind. Initially, she criticized Rachel after Roxeanne mentioned her lonely and sad youth on the popular AVROTROS/NPO 1's show "Beste Zangers". The 29-year-old singer told Rachel abandoned her for nine months. The young artist was traumatized. Patty advised Rachel to "shut up". But then the former Luv' singer took a different view. "We showed a report including angry comments. The only one who is never angry is Roxeanne. We were surprised that she made comments that her mother disliked on Best Zangers," Patty said. Singers who take part in Beste Zangers spend some time together and sing each other's songs. They become friends quickly and often discuss emotional topics. "The best singers stay in a beautiful hotel. They eat, have breakfast, lunch and drinks together. At some point, it feels like family. Then Jan Smit asked Roxeanne about her relationship with her mother. Roxeanne's interview was edited of course," Patty explained. "I've never considered Rachel a bad mother," she added.
During the August 25th broadcast, Patty and her crew talked about the 25th anniversary of the BNN channel launched by Bart de Graaff who died in 2002. Patty and Bart were very close. Here's what the SBS6 star remembered about Bart and BNN: "Wow! What happened to us? At the time, we were sitting at a bar trying to find new ideas. The next day, these ideas were filmed for television. Nowadays it's impossible to work like that because there are so many stages of development before a concept is tested on TV. I remember when he drove his Porsche and always took nice chicks home. We laughed a lot. We did things that were not acceptable on the small screen. One day, he touched my tits. Now it's still shocking to do it. Then Bart was sick. So was my little brother. Both of them were hospitalized in the same department". The excerpt from Bart touching Patty's tits after her breast augmentation was shown.
