Good Week/Bad Week: Fashion, Financial & Failure Free-For-All

Pictured: Topps Minis FA Cup construction Set.

We love Fridays for many reasons, but mostly because it’s the only day of the week that our “I’m too fat to come into work today” line is successfully acceptable.

GOOD WEEK

FA Cup Commodities: Ahead of this weekend’s Liverpool vs Chelsea final round clash, companies trying to make a quick, commercial buck have been out in full force. Our favourite pitch received, though, was for the Topps Minis FA Cup Construction Set. We dare you, Kickettes, to show us one person who doesn’t love building their own trophy.

Extraordinary Excuses: We were given a pass at the Apple store to pick up our new “corporate” iPads after they bought into our “some drunk mongrels knocked us over and broke them – we swear we weren’t drunk ourselves” speech, while Kaka’s beauty of a wife, Caroline Celico, told Istoe Gente that if her hubby ever cheated on her, she’d forgive him, because “when a man cheats, it is a sign that his wife failed at some point.”

Indigestion Issues In Plain Sight: Puking on the pitch was mighty popular this week. Obviously this trend worthy topic begs the question: what’s the protocol for uncontrollable upchucks mid-game? Should footballers grab a bottle of water and toothbrush before proceeding, or is a slight wipe of the kit sleeve enough to play on?

BAD WEEK

Scouse Style: The founder of Liverpool Fashion Week is telling guests to take off the fake lashes, fake hair and fake tan now or they won’t be invited to attend next September. Cricket Boutique owner, Justine Mills, is against the Scouse Style ban, as are the “stars” of Desperate Scousewives, who say they’re proud of their Liverpudlian looks and will boycott the event altogether instead of leaving the house looking like a normal person.

Formation & Financial Follies: Unaio de Leiria, a Portuguese top flight team that was dead broke and evicted from their stadium earlier this season, became the first in the league’s history to play a seven player match in a 4-3-0 formation. Not exactly a title we’d want our team to lay claim to…

Alexandra Burke: Defoe supposedly cheated on her at a hotel that’s situated near a “bridge that winks.” Need we say more?

    I'm going to choose to believe this is just some youthful silliness on Caroline's part. Sorry, I'm not religious, but is this part of some dogma they still teach in church? Is there a male counter-balance that says if a husband cheats it makes him less of a man in the eyes of God or something like that? Caroline started dating Kaka when she was just a teenager (they couldn't get married right away because she was underage, if I remember right) so I don't think she really knows about these kinds of things outside of their marriage.

    • gigi says:

      Oh but that being said, it's still WRONG! Can someone please get Caroline in touch with Colleen?

      • Jenni says:

        I'm a Christian, and we were certainly never taught anything like that in my church, but then, it's quite a liberal church. I did go to a church once where a leader, who was younger than me (I was 26), tried to convince us that it's unbiblical for a woman to ask a man out! I told him afterwards that I believed God created me to be a confident person because that's what He wanted, and that he was being legalistic and making up rules!

    Ok I realize that everyone is entitled to their own opinion-famous or not. And everyone has their own thoughts. But the entire world doesn't need to know it. Especially if its something this ridiculus. Caroline obviously need to learn how to keep her mouth shut. If man is cheating that means his wife is doing something wrong? For real? Man are saints and it would never cross their minds to cheat on their wives just because they wanna try something new or they have no respect? Puh-lease!!! I am really starting to wonder what Abby and Caroline were doing wrong when their husbands cheated on them when they were pregnant. Or what Ryan Giggs' wife was doing wrong when he cheated on her with his brother's wife?? Dear God woman. I would have expected this from one of the brainless wags out there, but I thought Caroline was smarter then this. Guess not :)

  3. It’s great to hear from you and see what you’ve sent up. Multi-functional Soya Milk Machines,This is a great blog. You deserve an award of some kind. Thanks!

  4. rafaela says:

    Caroline explain her self on twitter and said that she said that is not woman’s fault she meant that is not the fault of the person who cheated. Sorry for my english!!!

  5. Sarah, Madrid says:

    Caroline would say something like that, she USED TO BE my fav WAG! I don't want believe it

  6. futbolfan says:

    Bahh, I've been hoping for more Kaka on Kickette forever, and when it comes, it comes with a very annoying comment from his wife. Couldn't the pic just get it's own post and leave it at that?

  7. Anon says:

    I liked Caroline until that comment. She just dropped about a million points.

    • Doles says:

      Seriously, I can't believe that came our of her mouth. That should be in "Bad Week" not "Good Week"

  8. Cella.xx says:

    how can she say something like that…???
    Now I feel like we live in 40′s
    I’m soooo disappointed now

  9. Traceykay! says:

    What Caroline said is da damn truth! Trust me i knw what she meanz by that.

  10. Naomi says:

    Caroline is definitely my favorite WAG… but that comment made me really upset. It's great that she's so devoted to Ricky but she shouldn't think like that. I doubt Ricky would ever cheat on her anyway, he really doesn't seem like he would. Very cute picture of him & his kids!

  11. DebS says:

    Okay I'm going to ignore Caroline's comment (WTH?) and just focus on that adorable picture of Kaka with his kids. That is just precious!

  12. Carvivlie says:

    Poor Caroline. She has such little girl ideas about life and the world. Must be because she moved from her rich parents house to her rich husband's house all before the age of 20. She is very sheltered and idealistic. She is lucky she is married to a man that will not take advantage of her simplicity.

  13. Katie says:

    I know there's more to the post but I couldn't make it past Caroline's comments. If a wife chooses to forgive her husband after infidelity that's her business, but to say a man is allowed to cheat because it means his wife failed him. That's almost irresponsible. I'm hoping the quote was mistaken or misinterpreted.

    • Kristina says:

      I know! It's a comment straight from the 50's. If a man cheats on a woman it's because he's a cheat and he is directly responsible for his own actions. As we all are.

      • Kat22 says:

        Agree with both of you! I cannot believe there are still women about who buy into that notion! If she would choose to forgive him if he cheated, then yes, that is her business and hers alone, but to say it would be the wife's fault if a husband strayed is unbelievable. I'm sure that's going to make all those women whose other halves have cheated feel a whole lot better.

  14. Jayy says:

    Well Caroline’s having a bit of a brain fart – how is it acceptable to cheat?!

  15. Gladys says:

    I read Caroline's comment a few days ago and all I can say is she's lucky she's married to someone who likely never would cheat. Really disappointing. She's gorgeous and they seem like an adorable family, but between the whole religious cult thing when she was younger (I know– she's since renounced it) and now this, I don't have a lot of admiration for her. Her fashion designer/businesswoman mom, on the other hand, seems super cool, so you can't say she didn't have a good role model.

  16. Rachael says:

    So how exactly was Colleen failing as a wife when she was pregnant and he cheated what a ridiculous thing to say.

  17. Mirella says:

    Caroline!!! What are you talking about?
    I'm utterly disappointed now!

    • lydia says:

      I read that, and my mouth fell open! Of all women to say that! Not to mention what Caroline said is completely false…

  18. Kristina says:

    It's Cesc's birthday today, Kickette. And I can't believe that Kaka's wifes stupid comment didn't fall under the category "Bad week". I knew I was right when I didn't like her.

    • True. But the excuse we gave made it a great week for us!

      • Kristina says:

        But I LOVE that "I'm too fat to come into work today" line! Made me Friday, and I'm definitely gonna use that. Although I'm skinny as can be, unfortunately. So I guess no one will buy that even for laughs.

  19. Loninha - Brasil says:

    God the world is lost if Kaka has betrayed imagines the rest of humanity, we are lost!

    • Americus Killaponius says:

      That's what I'm saying. Does it even matter if she would forgive him or not? IT AINT EVEN GONNA HAPPEN ANYWAY.
