Since 1982, Patty has hosted a lot of TV shows (Banana Split, Gaat Met Die Banaan, Brard Gaat Extreem, Onder de
B Van Brard, Hart Van De Stad, ...).
In 1985, she presented with Pippo Baudo (a famous Italian TV host) the notorious San Remo Festival on RAI Uno. The next years,
other international celebrities co-hosted this famous programme: Brigitte Nielsen (in 1992), Eva Herzigova (in 1998), Laetitia Casta (in 1999), Luciano Pavarotti (in 2000) and Rafaella Carrà (in 2001).
In the first semester of 2001, in her TV show Absolutely Patty on Yorin, she interviewed VIP's in her house. Several months later, she hosted the
third Dutch edition of Big Brother.
Two years later, inspired by the success of The Osbournes on MTV,
a reality TV programme (Patty's Posse) featured her domestic life, her friends and family (Priscilla, her daughter and René, her third husband).
In the autumn of 2004, she was filmed with other celebrities (among them, Marga, her Luv' colleague) as they were having a health
cure in Ibiza.
On March 25th. 1955, she celebrated her 50th birthday. That's why a special TV programme (Pat's Life), in which she met the most
important persons in her life, was prepared.
Then, she helped desperated candidates to solve their love problems on Lieve
Patty on RTL 5.
In 2006, the docusoap Back In Luv' showed Luv's reunion. Soon after, the RTL Group got rid of her.
Her funny performance in Sterren Dansen Op Het Ijs (the Dutch version of Skating With Celebrities) as she did the splits in January 2007
was a heavily covered media event and saved her career.
Since February 2007, she has hosted Shownieuws (an entertainment news show) on SBS 6.
In 2008, she was a regular guest on the first season of SBS 6's "De Nieuwe Uri Geller" (the search for the next great mentalist). The next year, Patty
co-hosted this high rated paranormal talent show with Tooske Ragas.
In addition to that, Brard was team captain on the game
show "Wie Ben Ik?" with Gerard Joling
(the 2008 season was great and the next season lost a large part of its audience).
In 2009, she is judge on K2 zoekt K3, a talent
show whose aim is to recruit the new member of Flemish girl group K3. She has
recently extended her deal with SBS 6 through 2011.
The diva has often been invited in successful TV shows (Mooi! Weer de Leeuw, Jensen!, Ranking The Stars,...).

III) Patty's musical solo career and duets.
In 1981, Patty was the first Luv' member to go solo. At that time, she dated Carlo Nasi (a rich Los Angeles-based Italian music producer who
is a heir and descendant of the FIAT 's founder). Patty and Carlo lived in Los Angeles, got married in 1983 and
had a daughter (Priscilla).
The diva recorded in the 1980's three albums (All This Way, You're In The Pocket and Red Light) in the best studios of L.A. Thanks to Nasi's wealth, she could afford
the "crême de la crême" of the session musicians. Among them:
*Billy Preston (singer/keyboard player).
In addition to his successful Grammy-winning
career as a solo artist, Preston collaborated with some of the greatest names in the music industry, including the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Little Richard, Ray Charles,
George Harrisson, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Sam Cooke, Sammy Davis Jr., Sly Stone, Aretha Franklin, the Jackson
5, Quincy Jones and Red
Hot Chili Peppers. He played the electric piano on the Get Back sessions in 1969 and is one of several people sometimes credited as the "Fifth
* Paulinho Da Costa (Brazilian percussionist).
His name appeared on numerous top-selling records, including works by Quincy Jones, jazz veterans Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, and pop superstars Madonna (on her "La Isla Bonita" single), Lionel Ritchie (on his "All Night Long" single), Sting and Michael Jackson (on his "Thriller" album).
* Jai Winding (piano/keyboard player).
He worked with Madonna (on her Blond Ambition World Tour and her Girlie Show), Michael Jackson, Donna Summer....
* Paul Jackson, Jr. (guitarist).
This recording artist is a highly accomplished L.A. session player with a career spanning multiple decades
and playing on projects from Michael Jackson's Thriller
and Bad to numerous recordings by artists from Whitney
Houston, Thomas Anders and Patti LaBelle
to rockers like Chicago to jazz greats such as Dave
Koz, Al Jarreau, David Benoit,
Marcus Miller and Kirk Whalum. Jackson can be seen playing guitar in a wide variety of styles on American
Despite the participation of the above-mentionned artists, Patty's American recordings were not as succesful as the Luv' ones (except the Hold On To Love single which was a Top 20
hit in Holland, a Top 10 single in Belgium and which peaked at #12 in South Africa).
Moreover, Patty is used to record duets:
* in 1986, she performed a ballad (Tender Love), released as a single,
(of the Motown vocal group The Temptations).
* in 2000, she sang a track with Def Rhymz, a Dutch rapper.
* in 2004, she recorded a single (Huilen Is Voor Jou Te Laat) with Jacques Herb which was a minor hit on the Dutch charts (#64 in the
Mega Top 100).
* in 2005, the song That's Life with her then lover Derick was the theme from her TV
* in 2006, her Après Ski/Carnival
Wil Knallen" with humorist Ome Henk became a Dutch Top 5 hit.
In 1997, when the Spice Girls craze reached its peak, Patty recuited
five young women to form a female pop group (Patty Cash) that had
a short-lived existence. Hans van Hemert did the production on the quintet's recordings.
The same year, she was part of a Dutch All-Stars Choir which performed a parodic version of We
Are The World (BNers Voor BN: Hij Gaat Voor C!) that reached the 3rd position
on the Top 40.
Six years later, inspired by her experience with Luv', she formed her own girl group
(Enuv') with two background singers of René Froger known
as "De Frogettes": Anouskha de Wolff and Marian van Noort.
The trio disbanded rapidly.
