Kickette Catch Up: Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet

YouTube Preview Image

Kickette Army boys and girls, it’s time to put a little deposit in your karma bank (yes, ours is overdrawn, but we’ll make up for it with some short tents, pinky swearsies).

In fact, nice healthy short tents and the men who pitch them are important to all of us, so Do Me A Favour Campaignin support of Cancer Research UK’s Do Me A Favour campaign, we encourage you to send any men in your lives a friendly check-up reminder from Gary Lineker. No, he won’t magically appear in the flesh, but we’ve got one gratuitous shot of his wife for you to gawk at. Plus, these videos are customisable people!

Here to twist your arms a little more, Manchester City’s James Milner and Adam Johnson would like you all to pass the Line guy around like hot cakes. Seriously.

So please and thank you for showing your support with us; we’ll now revert back to our regularly scheduled programming.


- Alberto Gilardino now has another daughter (named Gemma) to call him daddy. His wife, Alice, gave birth to the healthy baby girl on the same day as Italy’s Father’s Day no less!

- Northern WAG weekend nonsense: Alex Gerrard and her ankle-zip jeggings were seen out in Liverpool after seeking the assistance of Top Shop’s personal shoppers. From the look of that barely visible bouffant, she was accompanied by BFF Kelly Ellison.

- Karim Benzema and his girlfriend of a year (?), Chloe, hit up Louis Vuitton and other shops during a spending spree in Madrid. The pair were joined by his brother and sister.


- Last week we knew Coleen Rooney and her familial entourage were in the Caribbean because our photo agency tried charging more money per exclusive photo than Coleen’s Vix bikini is worth. Cue the emptying of the Sunday Mirror‘s expense account – along with their willingness to run a source-free story – and now we have ourselves a rumour mill churning a mile a minute about tension in her and Wayne’s marriage.


- Real Salt Lake’s 2011 season promo is certainly a sight for sci-fi geeks’ sore eyes. (P.S. – we’ll get around to talking MLS seasonal hottie circumstances, don’t worry)

- And just in case any of you needed to see Gerard Pique and Shakira’s kiss from another angle, here ya go. You can share your gratitude or disdain in our comments section should you feel the need.

    To be honest. Shakira and Pique are going to make some beautiful babies! Although he does look a bit like a donkey. Ew. I hate Pique. (I'm a Madridista) (:
    one of the most beautiful wags is Van der vaart's wife.. she's so beautiful.

    Omg Karims girl has changed a LOT! before(a year ago) she seemed more humble, and sweet. Now she looks like a man eater who like money.. and she's lost weight. I'm sorry but, i think she was much more beautiful before. she doesn't desverve him! I DO! I WANT THEM ALLL!! AARGGHH!! Jalousi is taking over me! buhhu!

  3. Agnes Wonka says:

    Karim's gal is ugly
    Piqué and Shakira? what the hell do we all care?

  4. MsMe says:

    Poor Gerard! A horrible man-eating popstar has seriously sharpened her nails and hit them on him! Actually I´m just jealous because I still haven´t figured out how to do the same. But as they say, where there is a will, there is a way.

  5. Miss XOXO says:

    Alex look stuning always.

  6. strawberrysexcapade says:

    Adam Johnson, you are one of the loves of my life. But please, stop mumbling >.<

  7. xoWinnie says:

    i never knew Benz had a girlfriend!

    (…not that i ever really cared to know…)

  8. Lane says:

    i think the Pique/Shakira kiss is so presh. i've said it once, and i'll say it again: i love them together!

  9. Tere says:

    Darn… Benzema's taken… :(

  10. Melanie Gedeon says:

    shakira must die……
    not really,
    im actually happy for them and i wish them lots of love.
    but i will always love him :)

  11. Catie2838 says:

    A. If 300 hundred was made with $300, it would have looked a lot like that promo. No bueno.

    B. I love Shakira. I hate that she's drooling on Pique. Sad face.

  12. D0li says:

    Is his girlfriend a model/actress/wannabee wag? She looks nice though and they seem happy together. I wonder what he's buying the suit for? maybe we can expect another white suit moment… haha

  13. LuvinBale says:

    #1- James Milner and Adam Johnson should not do any promotional work where they need to speak. That was hard to watch. Other than that great cause and hot boys. But hey just need to stand there and look pretty.
    #2- Real Salt Lake spent a whole lot of money for a whole lot of crap advertising. That was terrible.

  14. rubyqueen says:

    alex looks super cute and fashionable.and am i the only one who thinks their will be a divorce or a trial seperation when coleen gets back from her holiday.??things just arn't worth the heartache.!!

  15. IrishBlue says:

    I quite like Adam Johnson, he doesn't get enough love around this place

  16. Sergz says:

    I'll probably get tons of thumbs down's for saying this… But damn! Shakira looks old on that picture! Look at all that flabby skin! I'm not a Shakira hater, I actually think she's gorgeous, but that picture does not work for her at all.

    • D0li says:

      it could be the angle, or lighting. we're all human so we're all subject to having a bad picture.

      • Sergz says:

        I did say that the picture didn't work for her in my last sentence, so it's not like I called her fat/old/ugly or anything.

    We're so Gourcuff news deprived…

    It's so nice to see footballers taking part in great causes!
