Kickette Catch Up: Your Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet

Steven Gerrard (his abdominals – holler) and his wife of five years, Alex, spent the weekend partying it up at the Encore Hotel’s pool in Las Vegas. Images: Daily Mail.

We’ve had an epiphany, dear readers: all the mocking and wondrous delight we take in fash-bashing Alex has been a terrible, childish mistake.

We need her and her WAGtastic ways. We couldn’t make it through the dark days of the well dressed and the modest without this woman. With so few things in this world that are dependable, Alex has always come through for us, waving the WAG flag of orange skin, French manicured falsies and teflon hair-do’s consistently and reliably.

Not many out there have this skill, and it’s time we recognise this.

Rant: over. And so, we continue…


- This is the kind of Sh*t American soccer fans say, which is tame compared to the Sh*t Kickettes say.

- How lazy are many members of the world media? Just ask Brooksy of Yahoo’s Dirty Tackle.

- Congrats to Sochaux/USMNT player, Charlie Davies, and his new wife, Nina, who tied the knot over the weekend in Boston. Stu Holden (who brought his model girlfriend Karalyn West as his date), Oguchi Onyewu and Alejandro Bedoya served as groomsmen while Sacha Kljestan (with his new wife, Jamie) were among the fine footy guests.


- French NT sponsors are miffed over the squad’s recent behaviour at the Euros and are subsequently cutting off some of their previously promised funds.

- Landon Donovan listed his 5-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom compound in Manhattan Beach, amidst rumours he is leaving to play in England again. You can see how large he was living in Cali here.

- Some ‘ballers take better mugshots than others. Looking at you, guy on the bottom right.

    Thanks for the info! they do look very cute and happy, and both bosnian too!

  3. Diane says:

    coming from America on our 4th of July holiday (uh oh, my timing might not be so good) ~

    re: the things Americans say (like that, and sadly, those guys aren't the only 3) make my resolve even stronger to be a loyal Kickette ;-)

    AND, personally I celebrate Landon Donovan moving out of LA (and his home is typical of that neighborhood, just sayin') ~ won't miss him.

  4. sarah says:

    oh stevie g!!! loving your look but those sunglasses make you look like a bug lol.

  5. Jen says:

    alex gerrard looks like the definition of jersey shore white trash. what do british people call that?

  6. GaiaBale says:

    Steven looks fab, Alex looks typical Alex. Wonder how she manages to get credited as a “style queen” on the mag she writes a column for. She could do much better with all the money and good looks she has been offered by Stevie and Mother nature!

  7. mata says:

    Oh. Thanks. She certainly is pretty. A few months back he was insisting that they were "just friends", the fact that they've been trying to keep things quiet makes me think it's real :)

    • AC_USA says:

      It is :) They both made it official on their twitter accounts :) :) And they seem very happy togeether :) :)

  8. Fatima says:

    Stevie’s in my hometown of Las Vegas and I wasn’t aware of this fact so I could properly, er, stalk him? :c

  9. jen says:

    stevie's in america!? ahhh!

  10. spanishamerican says:

    Robbie Rogers was also at the wedding, he tweeted that Karalyn smelled good, which is a little creepy. https://twitter.com/robbierogers/status/218804001…

  11. Kay20 says:

    That "Americans say" video is priceless. Laughed super hard because we all know we've heard all those lines. Every. Single. One.

  12. Donna C says:

    Don't care for Alex but her body isn't unusual for a lot of mothers. If you take care of yourself pre,during and post pregnancy then you shouldn't have a problem maintaining your shape. I have a few mom friends that look better than I do and I don't have any kids or look better than they did before kids. Besides you can tell by looking at her stomach that she's carried babies and at least it seems like she has a healthy shape unlike Abbey C or Victoria where you can tell they survive on 2 saltine crackers a day

  13. Doles says:

    Even though he is a bit Jersey shore-ry Stevie is SO FREAKING GORGEOUS!!!!! I'm getting tanned from all the heat he is radiating////

  14. DebS says:

    Just wondering what "offenses" Hatem Ben Arfa, Jeremy Menez and Yann M'Vila committed? I've heard about Nasri but not the others.

    • PhilippaB says:

      Ben Arfa – texting during debrief, backchat
      M'Vila – sulking when substituted
      Menez – telling his captain to [ahem]
      This could run on a bit – do not underestimate the capacity of the FFF to make a meal of things…

  15. krystal says:

    Landon Donovan has bad taste. What is with celebrities and beige homes? BLECH.

  16. Miss Lampard says:

    I have always thought that his talents were undiscovered and unexplored…I was right..I'm trying to touch him, it's ridiculous..grabbing the air, but I love it!

  17. AC_USA says:

    What?? You didn't mention that Edin Dzeko has officialy confirmed that he is dating the model chick on his twitter!!! Come on-it ruined my Friday and Saturday!!!! :) ))))

    • Taz says:

      aah me too! and the sad thing is she actually looks like a nice chick so i can't even say much lol

    • mata says:

      OMG who is she? After the Lashes debacle please tell me she's someone nice!

  18. Red_Girl says:

    Thank you to Steven G and his body for lightening my mood on a dull day…

    I suppose I should credit Alex Curran for giving me a laugh, as well.

  19. Callan says:

    Sadly, Alex G. can buy everything but class… or a more natural looking boob job.



  21. Jayy says:

    There's a reason why us LFC girls call him Captain Fantastic ;)

  22. FootballandMe says:

    Gotta love a bit of Steve <3

  23. sarah says:

    OMG S.Gerrard !!!! i feel something beyond love towards him!!!
