Bas Smit crosses the borders of André Hazes, Merel Westrik makes the switch and Raymond van Barneveld sees himself living together with Julia. An overview of this week's entertainment news.
It must have been a busy week for André Hazes. The singer enjoys a well-deserved vacation and should enjoy a drink at the edge of the swimming pool, but he must now deal with a real social media feud.
While André normally seems like good friends with Bas Smit, things got out of hand this week: Bas made a joke about Andrés sister and mother that didn't quite suit the singer. At least: it seemed that way.
Shownieuws wrote on the website that the 'quarrel' between the two gentlemen would have arisen after Bas placed a photo of them together with a painful text underneath: "Very honestly, I understand his mother and sister." accompanied by three emojis that cry with laughter.
"Honest? This is quite sensitive. Love jokes, but this one ...", says André under the message that has since been removed. Shownieuws concluded that Bas had crossed the border here, but nothing could be further from the truth: the two gentlemen had discussed it extensively with the two of them in advance.
Yet the photo has disappeared, but the swipe back and forth keep filling Instagram. André was also ridiculed by Bas with a photo from years ago showing that the singer has got wet pants in the pool. "Despite the fact that André was only potty trained around the age of ten, he sometimes had an 'accident' at a later age."
"There is one man in the world who can make the hardest jokes about me and me! And that is Nicolette van Dam's man", says André with two very old photos of Bas.
This 'feud' seems to go on for a while: in the Stories of the two gentlemen, a lot is still being done. Free entertainment for everyone.

Women's television made by women
Although television cannot cope without seeing famous women such as Wendy van Dijk, Linda de Mol and Chantal Janzen, men are largely determined by what women would like to watch. And that should change.
Janzen has her own production house and De Mol will soon start her own channel. Net5 has always been a 'women's channel', but now the channel is also made by women. Linda and her trusted right hand Jildou van der Bijl are going to redesign the channel, but we still didn't know anything about the content. Until this week.
Merel Westrik is the first name that connects to the new Net5. After five years, the presenter will leave RTL Nieuws and will make a talk show in the late evening. And there is more to come.
In addition to the standard sad messages from Merel's current employer and the standard critical statements from media experts, there was also a story that Net5 is coming with a Dutch version of the talk show The View .
In the American program, among others, Whoopi Goldberg and Sharon Osbourne talk about all kinds of topics that concern women. Men sometimes come to visit, but the table needs to be filled with leading women.
With the arrival of Merel, opportunities for this are seen in the Netherlands, but Olcay Gulsen is also linked to the new version. Talpa doesn't want to confirm anything yet, so until then it keeps on guessing.
House, tree, animal
It all started a bit complicated, but now it's all quieter: Raymond van Barneveld and his relationship with the British Julia.
At the beginning of this year, Raymond announced that he and his wife Silvia split up after more than 25 years of marriage and soon rumors about an affair of the darter arose. The woman with whom he allegedly had that affair was a 21-year-old porn actress, the stories in the British tabloids went on.
His manager was quick to let NU.nl know that that was absolutely not the case. Raymond's girlfriend was an "ordinary" 35-year-old woman. Then Raymond said he was really in love with his new girlfriend, and this week he made it even more official: he loves her and wants to live with her.
"Of course, things are never planned in advance, things are going as they should," said Barney, who especially does not want to rush because Julia also has an important job on the London metro. The darter says that the two share many interests. "Travel, good food. We never have word exchanges."
The divorce with Silvia, who had to learn about the new relationship through the media, is not yet complete. But that must be arranged before the end of the year and Raymond and Silvia are now in good contact again. "Of course it will not be easy for her, I try to help her where I can."
