Conflicting tales of Victoria Beckham converting to Scientology are emerging. Although so far, Lady Becks has successfully held off indoctrination, some say she has changed her mind and committed to the religion.
We all know Victoria has a will of steel (just watch her not eating for 12 hours on an intercontinental flight or continually denying she’s ever had a boob job), so why is she re-considering now?
It’s down to Katie Holmes, apparently. Some say that the friendship cooled because of the Beckham’s inertia at joining the Scientologists. Some say Tom Cruise has such a hold on Katie that he put the lock on her spending quality time with her BFF Victoria, and now that the California situation is nearly upon Victoria, she’s panicking – she needs a mate and she needs a high profile one to show up on her reality show.
The Daily Mail says: “Tom has made it clear their continued friendship depends on a commitment to Scientology. The way Tom sees it is that he has shown them a great deal of commitment during their move to LA.“
US Weekly says: “Katie’s friendship with Posh indicates she’s not fully committed to the Church” and says Victoria was so getting so annoyed by Tom Cruise’s constant sales pitches (he left 18 messages in an hour) (allegedly), that she snapped at him and said she was not interested in the religion, point blank.
David is not impressed with the Scientology situation, not least because he sure ain’t giving anyone any of his cash, and he doesn’t want his kids brought up in that environment. And to think, some say David doesn’t have a brain.

We’re neither Liverpool nor Chelsea fans, but there’s no two ways about it… Liverpool’s Champion’s League win against the Blues last night was hands down a big ‘ole case of just desserts for Jose bigmouth Mourinho. In case you missed it, first Jose called Cristiano Ronaldo something along the lines of a ghetto stepchild, then he said that Liverpool was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie cup club.
We love a man’s right to be an opinionated yakkity spout, but this time it seems many of the Jose haters will be saying “Boo yah!“ or, “In your face, foreigner!“ or something similar. (Personally, we’d go with “payback is a beeyatch, mofo!“, but choose your own expression at will).
Steven Gerrard said “it was one of the best moments of my life.“ Mourinho said: “… in 10 years or so no one will remember that we were the best team and should have won. All I saw was one team in blue playing without any problems and trying to win the game.“

For all those who like ‘em swarthy, arrogant and older (and wow, so many of our readers do), here’s Chelsea big man Jose Mourhino.
Jose isn’t our cup of tea, but who are we to judge those who’re feenin’ on the Mourn-in?
Hell, we’ve been known to fall for any baller with a heartbeat and a paycheque.
Random fact: Jose and/or his kids are big WWE fans, and he hit the WWE Raw event at Earls Court last week. He and the fams were soundly booed. By the poor and those who dwell in trailers, we’ve little doubt.

We can all rest easier, take that vacation, and just exhale, now that the Beckhams have found a house in LA.
Victoria flew into LAX on Saturday to take care of business and sign the contracts. Question: couldn’t they just have the paperwork faxed over? Did she have to fly to LA in a nippletastic outfit? Perhaps that was included in the contract terms.
The house costs between £10 -£15 million and was described as “modern, airy, very light and spacious with lots of windows,” by a source close to the Beckhams. Let us state for the record that we sincerely hope no one paid that source for this useless piece of information. Isn’t that description fairly gosh durn obvious?
Perhaps if that wasn’t put on record, many innocent people would be concerned that the Beckhams would choose a hovel with no windows and an outdoor loo as their place of residence in LA.
If anyone would like to hire us for some expert insider quotes, please take this one as an example of our skillset: The Beckhams bought a house they really like. It is big.”

Cheryl Cole has publicly admitted to having a bit of a jones for her hubby Ashley Cole’s boss, Jose Mourinho.
We just don’t see it. Not in this lifetime anyway, but to each their own.
Cheryl says it’s his arrogance that gives her the vibes.
“He’s definitely got something about him. He has a presence and a lot of charisma and I think everybody loves a little bit of bad-boy arrogance. He’s stylish and a little bit older, so yes, I’ve got a twinkle in my eye for him.”
Insert your own: gee, wonder why she fell for Ashley jibe here. Was it the bad boy arrogance? The style? The overtly masculine name? You decide.
