Becks in Milan: Victoria Beckham’s Dilemna

What would you do, Kickettes?

As we know, David Beckham will be making his way to Milan to train during the LA Galaxy off season.  His wife, Victoria, was recently quoted as saying that she will stay behind in LA with the children, and the pair will meet up with each other once a fortnight in the UK.

Let us break down the obvious, but necessary concerns:

The last time David found himself in this type of situ was when he moved to Spain to join Real Madrid. During that time Victoria was busy running like a well-heeled gerbil on the paparazzi wheel with Damon Dash to promote her new album/clothing/something and had little time to spend with hubby.  Cut to Rebecca Loos, a late night limo ride, and you know the rest.

For that reason alone, perhaps Victoria would have some concerns. Her man is hot, and often finds it difficult to keep his golden balls in his shorts.

imageBut also, to the married Kickettes out there – career ambition or not, would the ‘once every two weeks’ set up be satisfactory for you?

Would you be secure enough in your relationship that uprooting the family to another location wouldn’t be an option?

Certainly, Victoria shouldn’t have to follow David around just to keep him faithful. So, is this a sign of a highly successful, supportive marriage, or one that hit the going-through-the-motions stage long ago? 

And, since we’re stuck in a non-stop questioning loop,  does anyone remember how insanely hawt Real was when David and Iker Casillas touched each other regularly? We were so happy then.

    BECKSILLAS! they were incredibly hot together.on a more serious note, if I was Victoria I would be worried. specially since he already said when he'll be living. she is actually wearing flat shoes. wow.

  2. Mrs. John Terry says:

    Well, there were rumours that they don’t really have much in common anymore, that they hardly see each other. So it wouldn’t matter at all if he went to Italy. I think he has learend his lesson. He knows, they can only be successful as a couple. IF he’d pick up an Italian beauty, I am sure he would at least be more descrete than the last time…

  3. SemiCharmed says:

    OMFG is she seriously wearing flat shoes? That's a first. Don't you just love the Beckham-Casillas manlove?

    Spain is quite close to Italy… REUNION PLEASE?!

  5. Emily (Giggsy's Gal) says:

    I’m a bit torn on this question, to be honest. Considering David’s past problems with the whole “forsaking all others” part of his wedding vows, I completely understand why Victoria would have trepidations about staying with their boys in LA. Any wife or girlfriend who’d been cheated on would be a bit nervous to be halfway around the world from their très hot professional athlete man who has cheated in the past. On the other hand, though, I applaud Victoria’s consideration for their sons. Those kids don’t have anything resembling a normal life, and as much as they might miss their dad while he’s gone, I like how Victoria wants there to be some sort of stability in their lives – even if that is their normal routine of shopping, playing with celebrity friends and going to school with other privileged kids. Uprooting them so early in the school year and forcing them to move to another country where they don’t speak the language would be detrimental to establishing an enjoyable life in California. I just wish they’d stayed in England and spent their summer vacations in LA watching their dad play footie. [shrugs]

    Hi Girls (and like-minded guys), its been along time since I stopped by the comments box but of course I couldn’t resist responding to either of Kickette’s questions on this issue. First, there’s not much hotness that can equal Real Madrid cuddling in general circa Becks’ years there. Those boys brought goal scoring to a whole new level of hugging and kissing that made the world a truly joyful place. Even their practices…sSigh. Second, I wouldn’t want to keep my own hands off of my husband for two weeks, to say nothing of everyone else’s! And they respect the siesta in Italy — with school age kids you can’t beat that schedule for afternoon delight. I say get a tutor, get the kids a little extra culture, and have a couple of months of sex Italian style (which means “alot,” ahem, so I hear). ;-)

  7. Becca says:

    Hmm, i think david will behave this time, because i think he know what will happen if he doesnt, as fort he once every two weeks, i dunno. Wont the kids miss their dad?

  8. QUE VIVA ESPANA says:

    I'm wondering why Victoria doesn't want to go to Milan with Beckham: one of the fashion capitals of the world?!!

  9. FootballerChick43 - says:

    Iker + Becks = hottest Iker moments ever. Seriously. I can't comment anything else on this one, though, from lack of experience.

    I was surprised that Posh has decided (for now) to stay in LA. I think she's digging the fact that she's a commodity in her own right down in LaLa Land and she doesn't want to give that up. With David's track record, I would be quite wary but a woman has to do what a woman has to do. I would have put money on her following him about but…shows what I know. Give her credit for staying put, and keeping the kids in school for a somewhat normal kiddie existence (when you're millionaires = LOL!)lose that girl blog

  11. LoveLamps says:

    Posh is being a good mother. Good for Posh!

  12. pinkaddiction says:

    i think that either this woman doesnt learn or she doesnt care…
    I dont think its healthy for a married couple to be appart that long, and the children could stay in the US and their mom could flight back every time her husband goes off to play. The kids are big now so that wouldnt be a problem.
    i really dont believe they are a “happy couple” but a business arrengement

    And its not to be mean, i like them both.

  13. Vinandi says:

    Thats bollocks chicka’s! Victoria is staying in LA to shore up her own public image! she is scoring an own goal! I think thats a bad idea all around,but Becks has learnt from his mistakes, his next mistress will be super discreet and probably super rich so that she never feels the need to kiss and tell!

  14. Vlada says:

    I think that’s the best decision.  The stability of the kids should be first and it’s only for 2 months.  Becks would be crazy to fool around again because this time it will also negatively affect him as a professional, since he’s supposedly going to keep up his fitness.  Despite all the crap rumors from the yellow press, I think they’re a pretty stable/solid couple.

  15. CJ says:

    hmmm…i think she's doing the right thing. her children should be the top priority and it seems as though she has the common sense to treat them that way….that being said, i would be worried about what he would be up to, but i can only imagine the photogs that will be following him about every second of the day, so if anything were to happen i'm sure it would reach victoria in no time.

  16. The Fourth Official says:

    Good for her for considering the children and their happiness and stability. But it doesn't bode well for the marital relationship.

  17. AJ says:

    They've always spent a great deal of time apart. Even when he was in Manchester. It won't be anything new to them. That whole Rebecca Floosie thing shook Brand Beckham to its core. If he strays again, we'll never hear about it. ;) Bravo to Posh for ditching the heels. She looks much prettier when she's not trying so hard to be a fashion "icon" and just being a mom.

  18. TammyV says:

    It is going to be like 2 months… if he can't control himself for that long, he is a bigger tool then I have been giving him credit for. She is right to stay in California, why should she have to uproot her life/business/family so he can play for a couple of months when they are coming right back here. I think part of the staying behind is a PR thing because he is taking a lot of heat for this from the MLS fans. The assumption is that if he goes to Milan, then he is not coming back. I think it is part of sending a message that it is a short term thing and he is not even taking his beloved family. becks on Loan move video: <a href="http://la.galaxy.mlsnet.com/t106/index.jsp” target=”_blank”>http://la.galaxy.mlsnet.com/t106/index.jsp

    I think she’s doing the right thing. Taking the kids out of a school they’ve only been at for 1 year, for just a couple of months would be unsettling for them. It’s different this time. Last time she took a lot of stick for going away and leaving him so long but he’s the one leaving this time. I like the fact that she’s confident enough to let him go away and isn’t clinging on for dear life. He’d have to be REALLY stupid to play away this time though, everyone and his dog will be watching after the last time. personally I find it ok to be apart for a while- absence makes the heart grow fonder and all that. and yes I do remember the hotness of the iker/becks bromance- the play fighting in the snow, the constant man caresses. Why did he have to leave?

  20. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    I think that this is probably a good decision for them and it shows how strong they are as a couple…. but if it were me in her place I’d be going with him – it must be hard, especially with kids but it’s part of the job and if you have the money to afford all that travel then you may as well. But good for them – I’m sure there’ll be no more Rebecca Loos-type situations either…. And yeah – Iker+Becks man love = best possible man love ever!!

  21. FirstTeamCoach says:

    Is it still a marriage or now a business arrangement? Or am I just a cynic? – How have I ended up in the question loop?

  22. Mrs. John Terry says:

    First Team Coach, you’re not a cynic. I could see him next to so many showbiz girls and models, but I can’t imagine who’d she be dating…

  23. boo says:

    hehe this is interesting: how mrs. posh chopped her hair, covered herself and ditched the high heels combined with mr becks choice to go to italy while the wifey stays in usa. i’m just saying this usually happens around the 50 years old phaze. if you get what i mean. all in all they don’t seem to have a lot of sex…and that’s not really healthy for a relation, no?

  24. klyn312 says:

    I would hate it, but I could do it, not forever mind you, but I have done it and as far as I know we were both perfectly happy and faithful… 8 years and counting. sometimes you have no choice but to travel for work. Even when we don’t travel, we are so busy that sometimes we only get to see eachother at the sink while getting ready to go to sleep- life is hectic, 2 weeks apart is completely do-able. plus imagine the nights spent TOGETHER after that much time apart!! meeow!

    Totally reasonable. It’s a finite period of time that he will be gone, so yeah, I could definitely deal with that. Makes a lot more sense than dragging their kids around the globe. Let them stay settled in school and Dad will be home before they know it. Hopefully they worked through the cheating stuff and she can trust him now. I wouldn’t know–if it had been me, his ass would have been out the door with the first cheating episode.
