Kickette Catch Up: Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet

WAG hurt in car crashSaturday

- Sadly, we learned that Stephen Ireland’s longtime girlfriend, Jessica Lawlor, sustained major injuries in a car crash that occurred midweek last week. The 25-year-old Mum was supposedly riding shot gun in her friend’s Audi before the luxe car crashed into a tree. Although she was initially treated and discharged with a clean bill of health, she returned to the hospital two days later due to suspected internal bleeding and/or organ damage. We hear she’s healing nicely, but we’re sending our thoughts & warmest get-well-soon wishes to Jess & fam anyway.

- David Beckham proved the power a top shelf bootay can have over our purchasing habits.

- Crystal Palace’s James Vaughn (on loan from Everton, mind you) got fiesty with a wall over the weekend. Can’t we all just get along?



- Imogen Thomas. You had your turn. Twice. Please fade back into the unrated-by-the-celebrity-alphabet-abyss.

- Who do you think was cuter as a kid, Kickettes: Frank Lampard or Christine Bleakley?

- Mario Balotelli, proud home owner to the most awkward McMansion on his block, will reportedly not face sanctions from the FA for his badge bust up with Rio Ferdinand during this weekend’s Manchester duel.

- BTW, Rio and his wife, Rebecca, welcomed their third child, a baby girl named Tia, just ahead of the cup clash. How cute will it be to see older brothers Lorenz and Tate keep a keen watch over their little sister?!


short tent Kickette PFA Player of the Year- Gareth Bale has won the PFA Player Of The Year award. It’s obvious he’ll be stashing the trophy in his shorts, but we have no idea if Jack Wilshere plans to do the same with his PFA Young Player of the Year hardware.

    That's so awful. Glad she's healing and getting better.

    So I hear the baller in question is Ryan Giggs. There's no doubt the world is coming to an end, never thought that of someone like Giggs. I still don't think it's him.

    And congrats to Rio!! This is his first girl right??

    Congratulations to Gareth Bale and Jack Wilshire on their PFA awards. Both were well deserved. And best wishes to Stephen Ireland's girl for a full recovery. And Frank Lampard will always win the 'cute kid' award. He was adorable. Still is, actually. :)

    hahaha, is it sad that i am ridiculously happy that you guys actually used the gareth pic i submitted?? -__-;; lol
    best. monday. EVAR.

    I read the best reader comment about the Balotelli/Ferdinand thing in one of the papers. I wish I'd bookmarked it. The guy said "Balotelli is an inexperienced idiot. Ferdinand is an idiot with lots of experience." LMAO.

    Frankie is so CUTE 'n too SWEET..Love it!!!
    My words about Balotelli are finished, simply SHAME on HIM!!!

    So sorry to hear about Stephen Ireland's girlfriend…I hope she gets better soon.

    I'm so fed up of hearing about those homewrecking skanks (like Imogen Thomas . If you knew he was married and you still went with him the first time….what did you expect?!?!?!? It takes two to tango and he is just as disgusting as she is. I have no sympathy for her or the baller in question…what a bunch of low lifes!

    Sigh…Balotelli and his attitude….he is such an arrogant bastard. I feel sorry for him because he doesn't have someone like Fergie around to reign him in. Poor guy it must really hurt not to be in a team like United. I have to remind myself his club doesn't have silverware for him to brag about so the win must have gotten to his head. Ah well…I can't wait to watch Stoke kick City's arse in the final!

    On a happier note, so happy for Rio and the wifey. With two older brothers and Rio as her daddy…I'm sure baby Tia will be well protected when the likes of CRJr and Kai Rooney come calling…lol!

      could not have put it better myself on all fronts.

      Women like Imogen give the rest of us a bad name. Yes the guy is a prat for cheating on his wife but at the same time she still slept with a married man and expects us to have sympathy? Oh the shame

  7. Eleanor says:

    Mario Balotelli is an idiot – there's no doubt about it. HOWEVER, there's something about him that just makes it impossible for me not to like him.

  8. IrishBlue says:

    Pictures like that do not help calm my WAY too overactive imagination!

    Mario Balotelli is a moron. That is all.

    • DennisTMI says:

      What are people talking about? I dont normally check comments but when I saw GARETH…I just knew I had to check how many people love… that picture! And people are going gaga over some baby being born! HELL-O!

    • Winnie Mata says:

      as a Gunner/Blues fan i cannot fathom why i still look at pictures of Gareth
      (and find him so goddamn hot). it's like the ultimate sin!

  9. Devilish-x says:

    Can someone give rio a special request to upload a picture of his new baby bubba? Pretty please with sugar on top? :')

  10. mochara says:

    That's awful about Stephen Ireland's girlfriend, I hope she gets better soon! Some advice to Stephen: Don't take her to a Birmingham OR Cork hospital….. you know why!

  11. nandosfreckles says:

    Aww, Lampard was such a cute chubby little kid!
    And I could not stop laughing with Balotelli and that wink he gave Rio. Priceless!
