Iced bun? The Balzan siblings are creaming it.

Saviour Balzan

Oh incidentally, I thought I’d point out to those of you who missed it (or who don’t know that the two are siblings) that it isn’t only Saviour Balzan who has now got himself a weekly show on the state television broadcaster, TVM, but also his sister, Mariella Dimech.

Her show, one of those voyeuristic things in which vulnerable people make themselves even more vulnerable by exposing their problems while viewers get to say ‘jahasra’ and feel better about themselves, goes out on Thursday nights.

Like her brother, she gets paid while her guests, who do all the talking, get nothing. But unlike her brother, who stands, she does it sitting down.

This is all getting rather cosy, isn’t it.

As an aside, I wonder whether the misogynistic Saviour Balzan calls Mariella Dimech “a menopausal woman” when he’s upset at her, as he does with me, though he has absolutely no access to my reproductive cycle and, much to his dismay, never did. After all, she is 50.

Perhaps she should invite him onto her show as one of her guests. With all his fixations and obsessions, he’s a typical candidate.

“Allura ghidli, Saviour, meta bdejt tiffissa hekk? Tahseb forsi li ghandek one-track mind? Ir-rabja tieghek meta bdiet? Qatt tlabt ghajnuna?”

    Saviour Balzan: the man who would rather go to prison than reveal his source. Unless his source works for Lawrence Gonzi, in which case he will reveal him with neon-lit add-ons in every forum available to him.

    Do you think he is one of those unlucky fissati whose pills are now out of stock?

  3. Antoine Vella says:

    If I understand correctly, Saviour Balzan is not being asked to reveal the source of the newspaper reports but the source of certain documents he voluntarily presented in court.

    Such an angry and miserable man.

    Fantastic, Daphne, spot on.

  6. Chuzzlewit says:

    Mariella Dimech: Works/consults or used to consult at Caritas Malta?

    [Daphne – Yes.]

  7. Timon of Athens says:

    Mariella Balzan was always pushy, attention-seeking and self-involved.

    She simply loves the exposure and attention. A show-off to the core.
