‘Baller Soap Operas: Ricardo Quaresma and Catia Costa


Our interest level in Ricardo Quaresma waxes and wanes much like the moon. (And our interest in H&M collaborations.)

Once the subject of a Would You? reader debate, Ricky dropped off our radar shortly afterwards. But now that transfer gossip abounds of a possible move from Inter Milan to Turkish side Besiktas, the potential hook-up with Matteo Ferrari has convinced us to sorta-care.

Know this: Quaresma, the man who’s never met a logo he didn’t love, has surreptitiously dumped his supposed long-term girlfriend weeks after she birthed his baby. Apparently, he’s left her – without money, no less – and is denying paternity of the daughter he once claimed as his.

What on earth happened?

Let’s just say it went something like a really smashing epi of EastEnders. We’re here to recap it for the DVR-less few among you.

- As recent as last November, Quaresma, 26, and his 24-year-old girlfriend, Catia Costa, were jumping for double joy at the thought of an upcoming stork delivery and their impending nuptials. While the beginning of their relationship was said to be “unstable”, Quaresma wanted to “man up” and make himself a blingtastically acessorized family.

Ever been on a double date as a favour to a friend and she swears that this massively hot guy she going out  with has a ‘lovely’ friend who is single? So you go along as a favour to her, with faint hopes that he might be the man of your dreams and are then confronted with something like this (above left).  Hmm. We have.


Pato & Sthefany: On The Rocks? – UPDATED


UPDATE: The nine-month-married couple are said to be divorcing. Pato has already fled their shared home for a hotel as Sthef’s mother, Sandra, is helping her migrate back to Brazil.

The saddest part? Sthef signed a pre-nup, meaning she walks away from the short-lived experience with nada.

UPDATE II: Pato has now confirmed (through his agent) that he and Sthef will be divorcing.

The newest issue of Brazil’s Quem magazine is out and the cover story is saucy. On newsstands now, the tabloid alleges that Pato’s injury-prone season and new hobby of late-night club hopping alongside AC Milan teammate, Ronaldinho, has created a rift between him and his bride of less than a year. According to a ‘friend’, the player is ‘undisciplined’ and ‘down’ and his assy behavior is irking Sthefy.

Since there are a variety of conflicts and potential marriage-saving resolutions relating to this gossip, we’ve top-lined what you actually need to know/would like to giggle at:

Did Wayne Bridge Hook Up With Kim Kardashian? – UPDATED


UPDATE: Kim’s latest tweet revealed a rather LOL-worthy response to the front page of The Sun. She asked, ‘Who the hell is Wayne Bridge?’

Gossip blogs in the States are buzzing with the news that Man City’s Wayne Bridge hooked up with Kim Kardashian when he was on his “getting over Vanessa” trip in Miami earlier this month. We’ve not heard anything solid our end, nor seen any photos, so take this with a gossip grain of salt.

We introduced you to Kim in our American WAGs Guide, but in summary, she gets naked, makes sex tapes, and has an inspirational bottom.

As we all know, Wayne’s been a single man for some time and Kim has just finished with New Orleans Saints player Reggie Bush. He’s the man that set our loins aflame back in 2007 when he appeared in an Adidas promo with David Beckham.

We’re actually going to put some mood lighting on and go back and watch that video another 50 times. You can join us, or just freak out at the thought of Wayne and Kim hooking up. It’s your choice.
