Good Week/Bad Week: We’re Not As Shallow As They Think
Well, obviously we are when it comes to certain things.
Eva. The only person in history to take a ‘duvet’ coat and do something positive with it. Image: talkchelsea.
Your #1 Girlcrush: Being all about the bling is one of the allegations frequently made against us that we can now cheerily refute, thanks to you guys. We’re thrilled to announce that you voted Chelsea FC doc Eva Carneiro your number one girlcrush in our recent poll, despite never having seen her dressed in anything but trackies and a big blue duvet coat. A glammed up Nagore Aramburu came second, with Alex Morgan bringing up the rear. Now, about those accusations of being all about the skin.
Shiny Things: A WAG wearing your product has got to be one of the biggest boosts a fledgling business can hope for, so props to Birmingham based LaLaRocks, who can now count Louise Barry as a fan. Gareth’s missus was pictured wearing a LaLaRocks bracelet at Wayne Rooney’s recent birthday party, and the word is that Joe Hart is also a customer. Nice work, lady!
Employment Opps: Rihanna isn’t the only one considering a career change after being exposed to the football lifestyle. Actor Adam Deacon’s head was turned when he starred in Danny Donnelly’s soccer based drama ‘Payback Season’, as he proved at the prem when he asked a reporter “Do you know how much they are paid? I would do it – the money is worth the stress.”

Busted: Danielle Lloyd has told how a routine breast enlargement turned into a nightmare after her implants exploded. She told Reveal magazine that she ”only had the breast operation because I wanted nicer boobs for my wedding. But now I have none. [I look like] a 12 year old.” Don’t worry, Dan. It’s not the size, it’s what you do with them that counts.
Thrown Out: Ryan Giggs has had a claim for damages against the Sun newspaper thrown out of court. He was suing the paper for breach of privacy after they printed details of his affair with former Big Brother contestant Imogen Thomas and generated a “media storm“. Mr Justice Tugendhat dismissed the claim, stating he had decided to “refuse to grant relief” to Giggs. We have literally had to tie up two of our staffers in order to prevent them from responding to that and getting us sued too.
Nude = Rude: We don’t have a problem with locker room based male nudity. Queen Sofia of Spain appears to actively enjoy it. But our go-to fantasy scenario is not to everyone’s taste, as Asian Football Confederation Match Commissioner Cristina Ramos proved this week. She has filed sexual harassment charges against Philippine Azkals players Angel Guirado and Lexton Moy after she entered the locker room and Guirado presented himself to her in his pants. Um…
Alright, we *may* have over-simplified that last story for comedic effect. Check out Ramos’ account of events and give us your thoughts. Should she expect nothing less from a bunch of pumped up ‘ballers? Or is a little respect the least a match official is entitled too?
