Kickette Catch Up: Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet

Coleen Rooney, Victoria Beckham and Danielle Lloyd were three footballers’ wives who were mixed in with other notable UK celebrity mums in the “Bounty Celebrity Mum of the Year” shortlist. News of this potentially-awkward award might’ve escaped you, but certainly not us. Image:


- Shaun Wright-Phillips and NFL player Chad Ochocinco are such good friends that they trade their autographed jerseys with one another. Who knew?

- Kevin Keegan quickly became our new favourite people after we read about his position on players’ privacy and the price of fame. The shortened version goes something like this: he tells Wayne Rooney & Co. that they’re not ‘victims’ of privacy invasion.

- Speaking of which, it looks like the Crouch/Clancy nuptials are full steam ahead with the pair said to wed in northern Italy next June. That’s post-baby delivery, for those who struggle to count their appendages accordingly. BTW, Clancy’s singing career may soon be taking off – her vocals feature on the track, “Pulse”, which can be heard on Orchestral Manoeuvres’ new album, History of Modern.

- We feel obligated to tell you that Bleaks and Lamps went on a date. We also feel obligated to disclose our feelings: meh...


David Beckham in Trinidad and Tobago- Working tirelessly to aid David Beckham’s plight against Irma Nici’s threesome allegations, the ever-reliable News Of the World has joined the crusade against bra-less public appearances. Also, the NOTW caught a shirtless Becks talking back to a fan who made fun of the false reports on film.

Rafael van der Vaart's wife, Sylvie- The first airing of Das Supertalent resulted in Sylvie van der Vaart being placed ‘in a hypnotic trance’. Good thing the producers have three additional years to fix all the opening-night jitters; the 32-year-old wife of Rafael van der Vaart recently signed a multi-million dollar contract with the RTL show that runs through 2013.

- Pato’s new girl, Miss Brasil Deborah Lyra, provided insight into his brief marriage to Sthefany Brito by saying, “This is a thing of the past. She has her career, and I wish Sthefany every bit of success…I’m sure she’ll be a great actress.” For those not in the Brazilian know, Sthefany has a long history of acting creds in her home country. Zing!

- Although it didn’t necessarily happen this weekend, we found the amount of makeup caked onto three normally lovely blondes a bit disconcerting – Alex Gerrard, Liz McClarnon, Alex’s BFF-and-front-row-companion, Kelly.

    Im so sick of girls claiming to have affairs with players and getting paid when they have no proof! Where is the journalistic integrity??? Sue the crap out of her but even more so the people who published it. Maybe next time they will think twice about publishing rubbish like this again. Argh, so Frustrating!!!
    Oh and seriously the Becks thing was only published here in Australia? Wow, its all over the tabloid mags here so i presumed the world was reading it too. HA guess there's a first time for everything!

    miss brasil for the win!! if that were in the pageant Q&A portion, she'd totally get the crown!

  3. @AgnesWonka says:

    Danielle Lloyd is one of the mums of the year? Abbey Clancy is a singer?

  4. YouNeverWalkAlone says:

    This is random, but am I the only one that thinks the name "Sthefany" is an awesome name? And also the AlexanDRE spelling of the name Alexander. Random!

    That said, am I the only one that hates Sylvie VDV? and I know I'm not the only one that hates Alex Gerrard…I still can't figure out why Stevie married her.

  5. wow says:

    Their skin must be crying for air!

  6. EternalDreamer says:

    Celebrity mum of the year? *rolls eyes*

  7. Rossanera says:

    Does Alex remind anyone else of Paris Hilton?

  8. Summer says:

    If Lamps will get married with the FROG (Christine), I immediately will leave to London and first I kill him, and after I kill myself…I life with Lamps married with Christine isn't any more a life and can't be called any more life…Sorry Lamps because I really want your happiness, but please open your eyes and see what so many people see, you are with the wrong person!!! I'm so afraid and unhappy… :(

    Well said, Mr Keegan

    I'm so glad the Beckhams are taking that chick to the cleaners! Those lying tricks need to be put in their place! I'm sure there are many others like her and I wish the same could be done to them. Don't get me wrong I'm not defending cheating footballers, but I'm positive that in every 5 cheating scandals at least one is a lie.

  11. BarceLisa says:

    -Chad Ochocinco, what a nutter. Gotta love a man who changes his name to his jersey number.
    -I didn't know Abbey sings. Is she any good?
    -That vid of Becks losing with the heckler was really hot.
    -I never thought I would ever defend Sthefany but I hope she whups Miss Brasil's a** should they ever cross paths.
    -That photo of Alex and Kelly was so greasy I had to wipe my screen.

  12. RedAne says:

    Kickette, the link for Sylvie's story (the vid) is no longer available due to copyrights!!! Just thought I should let you know!

  13. LoseThatGirl says:

    Quick! Tell Alex, Liz and blonde #3 that it's too early for Hallowe'en. Yikes!
