- Hanging out in Paris with Katie Holmes on a “kid free” girly day shopping. Is it just us, or is this friendship more disturbing than seeing a WAG with a job?

There’s a battle raging in WAG world, and someone’s going to lose a French manicured falsie in the fight.
UK pop-R&B-zzz singer Jamelia has publicly been airing her views on footballers’ wives for some time. First she harped on about having her own career and not needing her man to fulfill her (she’s shacked up with Millwall’s Darren Byfield). Then she went on about WAGs being “leeches” and singled out Alex Curran, baby-mama and fiancée to Steven Gerrard, with a vicious verbal attack saying Alex only ate three grapes a day or something, we don’t know, we fell asleep whilst reading the report.
“Footballers’ wives are people who are like leeches, feeding off their partner’s success,” J said. “I didn’t seek out Darren because he’s a footballer. I have my own career, my own life, and without Darren I’d still be Jamelia. God forbid if Alex Curran split up with Steve Gerrard. Who would she be then?”
Alex has retaliated with some choice words in this week’s OK! Magazine:
“I couldn’t believe it. I have never met her but she accused me of getting by on three grapes a day, suggesting I’m anorexic or something. It’s because I’m engaged to one of the most famous footballers in the country. I can’t help that. She’ll be glad to know I don’t know her boyfriend’s name but Steven thinks he’s lower than a non-league football player.”
We hear Jamelia is taking off her earrings and pulling her hair back into a ponytail in preparation for the next round. But why bother, girl? When it comes to the footy hierarchy, accept your lowly placing and hope your children will upgrade with a Premier Leaguer next time around.

News arrived yesterday that five-year-old Maddox (he of Pitt/Jolie parentage) has been enrolled at David Beckham’s football academy in LA, and papa Pitt wants him to get some one-on-one coaching with David.
We will say this on the matter: If the day ever comes where Brad Pitt gets in his environmentally-friendly people carrier and personally brings little Maddox to meet David Beckham, surely the combination of so much visual talent in a square mile radius will bring the world to an end.
Think about it: the Pitt, Becks, soccer balls… add Angelina pulling up on a Harley and it brings a whole new meaning to Fantasy Football.
Wait, we’ve said too much.
In any case, we’re booking our flights to LA today, and anticipating the apocolypse eagerly. But not too eagerly, we still need to work on getting that pesky restraining order dropped.

Cristiano Ronaldo = we like.
Louis Vuitton = we love.
Put them together and it’s a good day.
His sidekick in the background = we do not know, we do not care to speculate.
Sidekick has his own admirers, however: Cristiano Out For A Little Shopping

Paul Scholes of Man U is in a spot of bother after calling a referee a “poofter” when he received a yellow card.
He’s being pressured to apologize by gay rights activitists who are urging disciplinary action – giving the example that if he had said something racist, he would be instantly punished.
We’re thinking spouting off like this was not a wise move for Mr. Scholes, who already has enough going against him.
You know, being a ginger minger* and all.
Bad red-headed step-child. Bad, bad ginger!
*for our North American readers, that’s pronounced with a hard ‘g’ sound: “ghin-gher min-gher” and is an insult that can usually be thrown around freely with very little recourse. Go on, try it now, you’ll feel great afterwards.
