Beck Talk: Four, Five Months Max

Oh, how we love us some Beckhams.  Even when David’s facial hair is resembling an angry yeti/shag carpet mix or Victoria hurts our brains by wearing leather leggings, we are first in line to buy a front row ticket to the all-paparazzi-all-the-time Beckham show. 

The true nature of the Beckham’s evolving relationship over the years is a frequent topic of discussion at Kickette HQ, so we got in back in touch with our favourite celebrity astrologer, Paul Watson, to ask him for an exclusive take on just how well suited David and Victoria Beckham actually are together.

Are they the perfect mix of sport and style? A delectable blend of sugar and spice, soul mates forever in fashion with an unbreakable bond of true, undying love? Well, not as such, no.

David is a Taurian Wood Hare (“generous, good natured and kind”);  Posh falls under the sign of an Aries Wood Tiger, (“sociable, likes to spend money, hard as nails”). Anyone else see where this may be heading?

Watson’s quote of the day:  “If this couple had no money, they would have lasted four, five month’s max.“  Click here to see the video analysis.
