the big question


The buzz is on: Victoria Beckham has made her mind up to bring a new baby into the world in 2007 and you know how goal oriented this gal can be. This fills us with a strange celeb-luv sort of ennui.

Yes, we know that 99.9% of their photos are staged, or the paps are called ahead of time and told their exact location and time of arrival.

Yes, we know about the “sham marriage” libel case.

And the affairs, and the brand that is Beckham.

So why do we see these photos and keep hoping/believing it’s for real?

Here at kickette.com, we’re onside with the romance. It’s that whole fake-it-til-you-make-it thing. Rumours are that Victoria is eating, smiling and seems happier than she has in months… Plus, how hard can it be to pretend you want to sleep with your husband when he’s as foine as David?

We’ve got to believe the marriage is for real. It’s the dream, right? Perhaps not three C-sections and living your entire life in front of the camera, but everything else? Hell, yeah. And that’s gotta count for something.

Gossip and Rumours

Courtesy of this week’s fabu popbitch newsletter:

Stan Collymore has just spent a week at the nudist resort, Cap d’Agde in France.  Apparently he’s shagged at least 100 women, most of them publicly.

“Dozens of very beautiful women were seen throwing themselves at him as, we’re told, Stan is rather well-hung and currently very toned. However, Stan rejected most of them and made a beeline for “mumsy types”


Stan used to be sexy. 

However, after the public beatdown of then-girlfriend Ulrika Jonsson in a pub in ‘98, trying to sell a tape of them having sex and his various “dogging” incidences up and down the UK, we say: now, not so much.  Or: ick.  Or: wait, aren’t you married??

And there’s more, on Chelsea defender John Terry:

According to PB,

Football clubs are buzzing with the story that (potential England captain) John Terry’s mum got, er, rather friendly, with Jamie Carragher’s brother at the World Cup.

Freddie Ljungberg: On The Bench


Freddie Ljungberg is still struggling with a foot injury and looks likely to miss the start of Arsenal’s Premiership season. Right now he’s got an inflammed ankle and an infection.

But is this news?

What we want to be reporting on is who is nursing his fine self back to health.  And why he hasn’t changed his name to something sexier than “Freddie”.

Cellulite Spotting: Victoria Beckham

1 comment

This image of Victoria Beckham is currently doing the rounds with the claim that you can see cellulite on her thighs. 

Oh, if that were true, but let’s keep it real: would Victoria Beckham ever leave the house in short shorts if she wasn’t absolutely positive she had the gams to pull it off?  Just not her style.  We thinks this can be chalked up to bad lighting and/or uneven fake tanner application.

However, the pap shot of her hair extensions and “hair loss” makes for compelling viewing and dinner conversation.
