Hope you had a good bank holiday, Kickettes!


Dani Alves & Bar Refaeli: New Couple Rumour Report


The message boards and gossip watchers are buzzing after Lecturas first published [Ed. Note: hellow - always the rumour starters] “news” of a new couple: Barcelona defender, Dani Alves, and supermodel, Bar Rafaeli. After they allegedly met at a party he bombarded her with texts until she agreed to go out with him. Or, possibly he just showed her his abs and she immediately acquiesced.

You might recall that Alves and his wife split up about a year ago, which would’ve cleared the way for he and Bar’s supposed friendship to blossom into a fully blown going-steady-for-four-months-now relationship. That is, of course, if Lecturas’ claims had actually been true and not just some hogwash like Alves insisted on Twitter this afternoon. And…scene.

On a seperate note, how great is the word, “allegedly”? It’s like a magic eraser phrase that says, “don’t sue” so nicely.

We have an announcement.

In less than a fortnight, bathing suit season will officially be over and we can eat desserts again.

So much to look forward to in September, we can hardly wait!


The Infidelity Files: Mario Balotelli


Really, how many times can we pull out the thesaurus to find a different way to say “love rat” and “man whore”?  We’ve reached synonym burnout when it comes to Mario Balotelli’s love of keeping a bevy of ladies on the down low.

Over the course of the past year or so, we’ve been privy to details concerning the Man City star’s dining style, affection for fancy dress parties (dressing for them, not going to them), 12 hour private tours and hooker habits.

The latest? Throughout the last 18 months or so, MB was cheating on Raffaella Fico with that chick from the Euros. You know the rest.

We, perhaps more than others, enjoy the potential daddy-to-be‘s playboy image – think it suits with all the flash and stuff. But yeesh, could you just keep your pants on and stay inside for a weekend? Maybe five?

And what of poor Lauren Thorne? She didn’t even get her 15 minutes in the sun before getting kicked to the kerb by several pairs of perspex platform shoes. Even Holly Henderson achieved more than that.

Blind Item: Shameful Stripping


Courtesy of this week’s fabu popbitch newsletter:

“Which former premier league star got so drunk at a Marbella beach club that he let his mates strip him naked and throw him in the pool, where one of them pretended to suck his rather small c*ck?”

Hmm. Interesting. And unfortunate.

Care to hazard a guess at who they’re talking about?
