"Máxima, una historia real" by Argentine Journalists (2008-2009)
 
According to website zijonline.nl (bad website, I know) 2 argentinian journalists a 'scandal' book about Princess Maxima. The journalists have been working on it for over a year and they spoke to dozens of intimate friends of the princess. Did any of the Argentinian posters hear anything on this or even know the journalists?

The journalists claim that they have shocking material that is compromising for Máxima and they have been adviced to keep it a secret. The RVD approached the two journalists and is threatening with a lawsuit. The book is meant for the Argentinian market, no Dutch publisher has shown any interest thus far.

Information in Spanish here.

I havent heard much about the book, just that the authors started the investigation three months ago and they were surprised becuase Máxima's childhood friends/classmates refused to talk. I also have absolutely no idea who the authors are, never heard of them before, and I doubt the book will be a 'best seller' haha:There is not such a big interest for Máxima here.

Yes, I read something about it a couple of days ago. The book is to be named simply "Máxima", and it will be published both here and in Europe. Personally I didn't know those journalists.

Yes, so I hope the RVD takes legal action against them.

Haven't Maxima's friends and family always been discrete? (At least, thats how I understood it...)

What are the chances really that other people would know anything 'damaging' to the Princess.

Sounds to me like the typical 'fame and fortune' seekers...

Marengo 04-25-2008 04:26 PM

Yes, thus far there only was 1 friend who ever talked to the press, to german ZDF (probably with the blessing of the court).

I am usually suspicious when authors start about 'sensational' news. Edwin de Roy van Zuydewijn has claimed that for years and we are still waiting on his bloody book (which probably will never be puclished or even written).

Vanesa 04-25-2008 04:54 PM

Pure garbage! A little girl of 8 involved in a scandal??? :eek::lol: Oh, maybe she stealed some candies for a classmate, back then...:dizzy::biggrin:;)

Vanesa.

Well, I suppose they will look for some more recent information too, Máxima lived in Argentina till in her twenties and she saw a lot of her family and friends even when she lived abroad, so...
In the worst scenario they would find something Videla related IMO.

NADA!!!

Typical BS from A to B.

None of Princess Máxima's friends would even think on talking on her to such filthy gutter creeps.

Marengo 04-26-2008 07:40 AM

well, we only will know that once the book has been published, won't we? It were friends of the Princess who sold that video of Máxima drinking, dancing and smoking in a very short skirt at a wedding party in Argentina to the press too, remember?

As I have no idea who the journalists are and in what segment they belong it will be difficult to know how reliable their claims are, and as I said, when authors advertise their book with 'sensational news' and such I tend to get suspicious.

Does the RVD have any legal standing to challenge a book that is published in Argentina?

True Marengo,but then that was before the engagement and when most didn't have a clue as to the implications of their dear friend and the Prince's future.Now they have.I think HRH's friends are very loyal,have to be,or it would no doubt mean the end of a friendship.
And rightfully so.Loyalty & thrustworthiness,key-words in any friendship,but even more so in this case.

What is the reason to call this thread "scandal book"? how do you know it will be a scandal if it is not written yet? Anyone has the right to write a biography, of course if it turns into a junk book, they will have to be sued, but as far as i know there are no scandals concerning the Princess. The Royal House is too much susceptible.

anyway, this probably was a wedding before she even met her husband,and what it is so wrong?a very short skirt, drinking and smoking? como on, this is not scandall!!!

Birdie 04-28-2008 02:55 PM

May be : some people think that she's becoming too powerful, so they would like to destabilize her.

Regina 04-30-2008 04:21 AM

I think if there was a scandal in Maxima's life we would know it already. When someone is sucessful there is always someone who feel jealous and decides to tell the dark stories to the media.
I remember to read here in TRF and in another spanish forum a rumour about Máxima being bullied when she was a child in her school. Maybe the book is about that, but then again it wouldn't be an horrible "Scandal" on Máxima's life.
