Kickette Catch Up: Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet

Image: Richard Young/Rex Features.


- Before saying cheese for the camera at The Didier Drogba Foundation Charity Ball in Victoria Beckham Saturday night, Christine Bleakley cozied up to injured Frank Lampard in the stands of Chelsea’s match against Everton. Elen Rivas, on the other hand, went cheek-to-cheek with fellow ex-WAG Lizzie Cundy at an ITV holiday bash.

- After we stumbled upon this shot of D.C. United’s Chris Pontius for BrightestYoungThings, we politely told him to burn this shirt (at left). He retaliated by calling us “haters”. Touché – but still – the shirt is fug. Yay or Nay, Kickettes?

- Diego Forlan and Maxi Lopez will soon be in-laws since Zaira Nara accepted Forlan’s marriage proposal over the weekend.

- Alex Gerrard got her first tattoo: two Ls on the back of her wrist in honour of her daughters Lexie and Lilly-Ella.


- Manchester United’s Nani commissioned a local sculptor to make a 5ft 10in (1.78m) statue…of himself.

- Can anyone identify which one of these masked men is our favourite footballing clotheshorse extraordinaire? [PS: see if you were right here]

- We discovered that Nicolas Anelka is a bad ass man in black on the 7th December cover of Les Inrockuptibles. You can read snippets of his thoughts about his recent French controversy here.

- Louise Redknapp is quickly becoming England’s answer to Brooke Shields: earning a revenue stream through overexposure.

- As is per usual, we forgot to wish a very happy birthday birthday to Barcelona’s David Villa, who turned 29 on Friday. May his last year in his 20s be filled with many more sex face celebrations.

    sergio sergio sergio. the mask does nothing haha

  2. Lily Montella says:

    Happy Birthday David! Ramos you are super hot!

  3. Vanessa says:

    YAY!!! Congratulations, Diego and Zaira!!!

  4. Boo says:

    Anelka is still a jerk.

  5. Rosie says:

    Sex Face is the best face! And happy bday to Villa! May he have many more (birthdays, goals, and sex faces).

    Drogba's ability to rock a suit never fails to astound. Likewise for Sergio's Special Sergioness.

    As for Nani . . . that's what therapy is for. If you can afford to commission a marble statue, you can afford to seek professional help for your narcissism complex.

    I really don't get the whole "tattoo-someone's-name/initials-etc.-on-yourself-to-prove-your-love" phenomenon. However, that's not say that 'ballers aren't gorgeous when properly inked, with "properly" being the operative word.

    As for Chris, the only thing to do with a shirt that fug is to take it off, preferably along with your other clothing.

    Dear Lamps,

    You are supposedly a smart man, though your decision making leaves much to question there. Anyway, I would like to point out that while with Elen you broke records of most games played, goals scored, assists, etc. With that woman. you have pretty much been sidelines the entire time or getting embarrassed when she is in the stands.

    Might I suggest you look up jinx in the dictionary, you will find a picture of a woman in the hideous dress and shoes combo who lost in the early rounds of strickly come dancing.

    Signed, those who remember Hot Lampsy foundly

  7. Sergioramos4ever says:

    Clothes whore= The Sergio Ramos

  8. N says:

    Ah, Sergio. If that mask is meant to hide the fact that you're one of the hottest things on two legs ever to walk the Bernabeu, then- to the delight of all us fangirls- it's clearly failing! (congratulations to Real for bouncing back from El Clasico this week, btw) .

    And more congratulations to Diego and Zaira (can you just imagine how gorgeous their future offspring will be?)

  9. JaneSpotting says:

    Nicky Anelka is indeed a quiet bad*ss man. Very nice.
    Me likes

  10. @AgnesWonka says:

    congrats to Diego and Zaira! they're such a cool couple!
    Sergio looks sooooooooo cool in that white suit!

  11. Nora says:

    Kickette, you need to stop linking the sex-face pick of David because I have to change my panties every time I see it…. now if you excuse me, I'm going to stare at it some more

  12. Zahara says:

    aww happy birthday my dear daveeed! hope you had a grreat one!

    congrats to diego forlan and zaira!

  13. BarceLisa says:

    omg why hasn't anyone mentioned the Manchester City christmas party? I'll give you a teaser: Joe Hart in polka dots:…

  14. Alex Samuel says:

    awwww congrats to Diego and Zaira! They're gonna make BEAUTIFUL chidren. And Nani, I…why? Just, why? I mean no disrespect at all to people who like Nani, but I think he is in danger of falling in love with himself.
    Haha I think plaid shirts are sometimes cute, but in this case… *awkward silence* There's a reason we have mirrors, to stop stuff like this from happening

  15. Taskeen says:

    A. statue. of. himself.
    Is he quite alright in the head?
    What on earth would you do with such a thing? – Its gonna be hectic to keep it dust free is all I'm sayin'

  16. Jules says:

    No, Chris, that shirt is just…no. He and Iker need to form a support group for men who love ugly plaid.

  17. The highlight of my weekend gossip was finding out that Roy Keane has a mirrored ceiling over his bed.

    • lilygold says:

      Yes, laughed at that too. Must say that Roy Keane has that rough," throw you down on the bed and rip off your clothes then have great sex" look which I love so much. He is one hot bloke, yum.

  18. SoccerLoverrrr says:

    awww daveeeeeed shares the same bday as my sis! :D

  19. Summer says:

    Also of course HAPPY BIRTHDAY Daviiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Summer says:

    Go and watch the dress of Christine Bleakley….

    I think that she looks simply awful in every way and I don't like her dress, she looks like an horrible Christmas present, which are in those papers so colorful, too colorful with the wrong color…(simply horrible..)

    Compliments to Didi because he looks great in this suit, and has showed once again his sense of style!!

  21. senora ramos says:

    covering up my bb's beautiful face :( though the photos from the shoot were really hot! congrats to deigo. happy birthday my dear dahveeeeed! congrats to madrid for bouncing back this weekend. as it's finals week, i needed to post that here b/c i will be not here til next week!

    • Thea says:

      Thanks for letting me know – guess that means I have the bragging rights all to myself for a while! Wow what an insane couple of weeks I've had, with my studying, working at Abu Dhabi grand prix and partying Barca style at the Nou Camp! I need to DETOX and it's not even xmas yet!

    • Bri says:

      Finals are just unfair when there is quality footie going on! I'm in the same boat as well! =( I tried convincing my genetics professor that in order to truly understand the genome we needed to observe quality specimens ie) the spanish national team. Alas, to no avail… I must content myself with drosophila.

  22. MadameGourcuff says:

    a statue nani, really!? i guess we're all legends in our own minds,lol. Congrats to diego and zaira

  23. Bri says:

    oh Nani…..*facepalm*

  24. michelle t. says:

    Even if Chris Pontius was going out to rustle up some steer, the shirt would still be fug.

  25. Liz says:

    Ahhh Sergio. Your smile lights my life.
