She is boundlessly happy! Photos on page 8!" I don't know what the Swiss public thought of it but in the US, this kind of cheesy media stunt would get any celebrity thrown straight into the "trash" bin. The relationship between Patty and Hoffy is their own business, but to me, these scenes look like photo ops staged for the sake of public relations. What kind of celeb invites the paparazzi to cover her private vacation? Obviously, one who is desperate for publicity. Still, i have to say that Patty looks quite beautiful in some of the pics, so it wasn't all for a loss.
