Property Watch: Neville Neville Land



Usually Gary Neville flies under the Kickette radar.  Unless he’s doing something related to his best bud, David Beckham, we’re not really that bothered.

Because he’s not good looking.  Just google him, you’ll see.

However, today an exception will be made, because Mr. Neville has impressed the pants off of us. And we’re not even talking about his £80,000 a week salary.

Not only is he building a 12 bedroom mansion in Lancashire with no expenses spared in order to host his upcoming wedding, he’s levelling historic 16th century properties in order to do it. Buh bye old ass relic of history, hello £6 million golf course, stables, cinema and other such necessary goodies.

Neville has nearly 200 builders hard at work on the site to get it ready for his marriage to Emma Hadfield on June 16th – he’s promised to carry her over the threshold of their new home, so they better get their hustle on. The pair will be start the ceremony at Manchester Cathedral before heading to the new diggs, where insiders say James Blunt will be performing. No word on whether ear plugs will be provided.

Dwight Yorke: Baby Mama Drama

Comments Off


Sunderland’s Dwight Yorke is living in a world of baby mama drama and it’s getting overpopulated.

After a well-publicised fall out with glamour model Jordan, with whom he shares a son, Harvey, Dwight is now in the midst of a truly icky situation with his current girlfriend, Naomi Smith.

His current pregnant girlfriend Naomi Smith, who has just been rumbled as having a three-year affair with an assistant pro-golfer named Darren Sorrell.

To rub a little salt into the wound, it looks like Dwight has been signing the cheques for the two lovebirds.  A friend close to the couple said “He [Darren] loved the lifestyle he had by being with her. The clothes, posh restaurants. All of which are funded by Dwight.”

Naomi apparently had a stylish apartment she used to shack up with Darren, paid for by Dwight’s cash.  She also bought her bit-on-the side a car and took him on vacations.

Off the Market: John Terry

It’s time to break out those romance novels and candy hearts, Kickettes, the summer of love is rapidly approaching. 

Or, alternatively, you could say the summer of pre-nuptials, tacky hats and selling images of your love to the tabloids for millions of pounds is nigh.

Michael Carrick, Steven Gerrard and Gary Neville are all getting married on June 16. 

No, not to each other you silly ninnies. 

Perhaps we missed the news piece on why exactly June 16 is such a romantic day in the calendar.  It may have something to do with the fact that the football season is 900 weeks long and there are very few Saturdays available to do the deed, but ‘tis strange indeed.

Anyhoo, Chelsea’s John Terry and his long-time fianc

The Friday Fit: Adrian Mutu

At one point we knew which club Mr. Mutu played for.  At one point, we cared about such things. 

We also seem to remember he had some sort of drug scandal followed by an Italian football drama, but for all we know, it could have been a storyline on a Footballers’ Wives repeat that we watched at 4 am after stumbling in from another night of gossip trawling, footballer stalking and champagne guzzling.

imageWe know one thing about Mr. Mutu. He’s easy on the eyes.  Alas, he’s been off the market for over a year and a half.  He got married in July ‘05 in a lavish ceremony with some serious wedding gifts. 

If you’re going to go down the matrimonial motorway, take some tips from Mr. Mutu and his wife, model Consuelo Matos Gomez.  They were given presents worth over
