Tales of Drudgery & Boredom.

Véronique De Kock

I still don’t get the Veronique story, btw. Just found a lot of photo pages on google.be and beyond. [Radio Free Blogistan’s Christian, in his comment to my recent entry in English]

Veronique De Kock is a 24 year old model, former Miss Belgium (1995), sometime singer and TV presenter, organiser of Miss Antwerp beauty pageants and a nice person altogether. Easy on the eyes, too.

She has nice breasts. There’s a rumour going around that she has implants. She denies the rumour. End of story, right?

Well, in a word: no. There has been an escalation these past few months of ever more insistent cries that she has had her breasts enhanced, and ever more categorical denials that she did nothing of the sort.

Things came to a head (so to speak) when Veronique decided to have her breasts x-rayed, had the photos published in P-Magazine (where she’s had many a swimsuit special over the years, by the way (down boy!)).

She thought she’d put the nasty rumour to bed when the x-rays looked nothing like, say, Lolo Ferrari’s monstrosities.

And then she appeared on De Laatste Show, a Flemish late-night talk show. The host, Bruno Wyndaele, a smug bastard if ever there was one, had the most irritating interview with her. On or off TV, the most condescending conversation I ever saw. The kind of situation where whatever you say or do, the other person goes “suuuuuuure” with an amused smile, and clearly doesn’t believe a word you say.

The worst thing about a situation like that is you can’t do anything about it. No matter what Veronique said, Wyndaele kept going on about x-rays not proving anything, and that she certainly had something to hide, and that she shouldn’t be ashamed to confess to having plastic surgery, and that if they were saline implants they wouldn’t show up on the x-rays, and that she couldn’t really prove those x-rays were of her chest anyway, etc. etc.

No to put too fine a point on it, by the end of the interview Veronique was livid. The very next day she went to a competing TV programme, Mediamadammen, and took the entire crew to a clinic where she had her bosom ultrasounded. The doctor taking the ultrasound exam was formal: there were no implants of any kind in Veronique De Cock breasts, saline or otherwise.

But still the controversy raged on. And then suddenly last week, on Thursday morning 12th of September, photos of Veronique De Kock without bra, naked, in monokini as it were, on the beach at St. Tropez, apparently taken by a paparazzo, appeared on the internet.

By Thursday afternoon the entire Belgian internet world knew about it, and on Friday the papers had the story, radio programmes went on about it, and Veronique herself had started taking legal action against the phtotographer and any sites that hosted the pictures.

And also by then, I was about the only site on the internet in Dutch that rated highly on Google (.be and .com) and that mentioned Vernoique De Kock, St. Tropez, her breasts, the fact that they were naked, and that I had the photos in my posession.

And the hits started rolling in.

So there. That’s why I’m still on top of the most-read blogs at Salon, five days after the De Kock storm started.

Oh yes; in case anyone’s wondering what all the hoopla is about: the pictures can be found (for the moment at least, I don’t know how long his server will be able to take the load) at Dextro’s web site:


  1. As a Belgian (and naturist) I am wondering about so much controversy in the belgian newspapers !
    Undoubtly she has nice beautiful breasts, in my opinion completely natural for a healthy lady of 24 years. I have seen her once on television interviewing a well known italian fashion king and I would say she gave on this occassion, a sound and beatifull expression of her other disclosed charms – of an other order, of course than the controversial picures. The conclusion : she’s a fine and charming person in more than a way .. and now some of the internet community are aware of it, but madre de dios, it’s not the 3rd world war which has started. Let’s enjoy it in cool way.

  2. I might have Veronique De Cock x-rays lying around somewhere. If I do find them, I’ll scan them & put them somewhere online.

  3. Everyone in my office, particularly William, wants to see the X-rays….Gracias

  4. I’ve been a fan of veronique’s breasts from the first moment i saw her but i’m a bit dissapointed.

    I tought they were BIGGER !!!

  5. You, my good man, have got to be kidding.

  6. As the kids on Fark would say, I’d hit it. 😉

  7. They don’t have to be bigger, they great as they are. And who cares if they’re fake. If they are, she may have had a good reason to have an implant job. But I don’t think they’re fake, they are too beautiful to be fake!
