    yeah, tasha you understand us so well!  You should try cracking the DaVinci Code next

  2. tammyv says:

    OK….Alex entertains me, I think she is comic gold, which is totally based on the wannabe badass Barbie vibe she throws off.  She might very well be a lovely women but she tries really hard,especially in pictures, to come across as superior. (Check out her wedding photos for proof).

    Unfortunately for her, it is hard to pull-off power bitch with so much clearly fake about her: hair, tatas, skin, nails.  It screams trying way too hard because of massive insecurity to me.

    When you are the mother of two small children, falling out of a club drunk is ALWAYS going to be looked down on anywhere in the world at any economic level.  You can get away with it once on a special occasion, but when it becomes a habit, you will get criticized for it.  Regardless of who you are…ask Britney. 

    No everyone knows where everyone stands

  3. rania says:

    i think the problem in her outfit is the context. i am originally from california. we don’t even dress like this out on the streets. she is wearing it in the wrong context. she needs the tropics and an ocean to justify this one.
    its like wearing sunglasses at night.
    these celebrities are so eccentric.

  4. Rusty (Frau Ballack) says:

    I had a response typed out, but I really can’t do it. So I shall say something positive about Alex: she has a very beautiful name, and Lilly-Ella is adorable.

  5. Erin says:

    Oh, now you’re snide.  That’s lovely, and really helps your case.  As for anonymous…yes, it is.  My name is Erin.  Does that mean you know who I am in this world?  Of course not.  I think you might be in the wrong place, Sara.  Perhaps you should find another website which might make you happier. 

    Back to the original point of this article….I think Alex looks nice there.  I like her dress.  I’m out of this one. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

  6. Sara says:

    They’re not anonymous, they were taken from this website on the comment section with names, and I felt it was bad form to repost them with the names, so I took the quotes without them. It was all to reinforce my point, and my reasons for stating it, which I don’t think you are getting. It’s OK, I didn’t expect you to.

  7. Erin says:

    So what?  Seriously…so what?  An anonymous post on the internet about Alex’s parenting does not make it true.  It doesn’t affect her life or that of her children or anyone else’s.  You’re taking this all WAY too seriously.  Moving on….

  8. Aoife says:


    My two cents is: that club is right beside the hotel I stayed in when I was in Liverpool! Woo! I remember contemplating whether to go in or not. (We didn’t)

    And her dress is cute but maybe more for the beach, not shopping in a city. It’d get so dirty dragging along the ground.

  9. sara says:

    I wasn’t trying to refute or discredit other opinions, I was trying to back mine up: that people criticize her parenting style with no basis. Everyone else brought up the idea of terrible clothing (which I hadn’t even mentioned, because I agree, sometimes the ruffles can be a bit insane), and that’s why I got the quotes from that post when she was wearing a dress that everyone panned, yet some felt the need to talk about how her kids don’t see her. It’s an existing sentiment.

  10. Erin says:

    Sara, you can have opinions, of course.  But you come on here to try to refute and discredit other opinions.  That’s the problem with your posts.  If you notice above, I said I think Alex looks great in this photo.  That’s an opinion relevat to this article.  You, however, try to talk about how wrong other people’s opinions are.  If you can’t see the difference there, then there’s no point in continuing this line of discussion.

  11. sarabee says:

    Lol, Rusty (Frau Ballack)…Pink is a gay bar. Its very ,eh, pink! And glittery!

    Theres a lot of Saras about btw! Lol!

  12. sara says:

    I know it’s a message board. But I also know that people who participate in them are allowed to have opposite ideas different from everyone else, and engage in healthy debate. I certainly know I’m not going to change the opinion here, but I was very curious about the issue.

    Now, if you’re mad that I actually have facts to back up my case…

  13. nicky says:

    Oh and well said Erin!

  14. nicky says:

    anyhoo, moving on from the parenting debate…i think she looks good in this pic. alot of people would look like s@*t in the dress and she pulls it off well I think. Even if it is meant for the beach….

  15. Erin says:

    Oh, for crying out loud.  Let it go!  It’s an internet messageboard.  If we don’t like her style, we don’t like her style.  She’s a public figure and people will comment on her—good and bad.  You can bang on all you want, but you’re not going to matter in the scheme of things.  You like Alex, others don’t.  The end.  Move on.

  16. sara says:

    oh yeah, the above is Tasha, I just posted using my real name, lol.

  17. sara says:

    This isn’t war, lol. It’s healthy discussion on a topic that I’ve always wondered about.

    Haha, I’m not Alex. And I haven’t even mentioned her clothes as being part of what people hate about her, but if I was Alex, I wouldn’t wear some of the more crazier things.

    And I don’t think you guys are jealous, you definitely don’t sound like it, but AJ, those “old friends” you mentioned, what if they’re jealous? Like that girl Stevie went out with, that started up all the gangland stuff: I felt bad for her until she mentioned how if she were Mrs. Stevie G, she wouldn’t do what Alex does. Which, to me, reeks of jealousy.

    Alex didn’t “aspire” to be Stevie’s wife, in his book and the documentary, he mentions basically having to stalk her to get her to go out with him, and this was when he wasn’t The Stevie G, he was talented, yes, so she could’ve gone out with him, but he might have not turned out as famous as he is today. There’s no way that she could’ve thought: “OK, I will go out with him because someday he’s going to win the European Cup, have an FA Cup Final named after him, become a Member of the British Empire…“ all the good things and the whole WAG phenomenon happened after they got together, so this isn’t like Danielle Lloyd/Charlotte Mears who will basically #### their way to the top.

    Here is what I mean about criticisms about her as a parent, from that post of her during Liverpool Fashion Week:

    “Is she drunk? What the hell is she thinking of? What would Stevie think? She has kids for crying out loud!“

    “How did Steven Gerrard end up marrying her?The are so different.She would be better for Jermaine Deffoe.Now they have lots of things in common.Who takes care of her children while she's off partying(which seems to be everyday).Although maybe it's better that she doesn't spend lots of time with time.Yuck!“

    “I think her daughters don't remember how her face looks like

  18. NIC says:


  19. Erin says:

    I don’t doubt she is a good mother.  I’m sure she loves her kids very much—who wouldn’t, they’re gorgeous!  But she often looks like a two-bit hooker when she leaves the house….orange skin, loads of makeup, huge hair, ridiculous clothes, etc.  And she’s a pretty girl!  And that’s what we mock.  Me, anyway.  That said, I think she looks nice here—casual, laid-back.  I think the billowing of the dress in this snap is what is probably unflattering because, as we saw at the SATC premier, her body is hot.

    I will also add that I don’t understand why Alex is at things like the SATC premier down in London.  Seems odd that she attends things like that.  But….whatever.

  20. Becca x says:

    I Read A Few Of The Comment sna dWhen I First Saw The Pic I Did think She Looked Pregnant, Might Just Be The Angle Or The Wind Though…

    I Bet She Was On The Phone To Stevie! <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />

  21. AJ says:

    Tasha/Alex, (just in case… you KNOW Alex has heard of this forum by now <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="red face" style="border:0;" />) The claims of being an unfit mother, I can’t comment on as I’ve never heard anything to suggest it.

    But, It’s not jealousy or malice that makes negative posts so easy.

    Exhibit A: Her fashion choices are generally very “liverpool”, which is cool, but not exactly accessible (or understandable) to others, ooohhh say, ten miles away or further.   

    That’s enough, but I’ll go a step further, cuz it’s always bothered me. She’s hard to like, Tasha. Any woman who, blatantly, aspires to be a wife of a wealthy, famous man is backward and lazy to most modern women. A number of her friends have reiterated her past ambitions in the press, so don’t challenge me on this and PLEASE don’t make me look it up…research is my Achilles. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />

    It’s panned out, so good for her, she got what she wanted. But, that’s gonna cause some backlash amongst her peers, no? And yes, WE are her peers, Tasha. Make no mistake, they’re are a number of kickettes that can afford her frocks and handbags. It’s just pure SHOCK at some of her fashion choices that puts us in a naughty mood. We slate her for a reason, I swear, and it has nothing to do with the rearing of the Stevie juniors.

    Uh oh, security: united15….Kickette is trying to start a NW war, methinks.  <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />

  22. Danika says:

    Tasha if she is hadn’t drinked during the pregnancy she should stop declare things like “ I was dead scare so before I went to the hospital I had a glass of wine to get going” in her interviews.
    She really likes that electric blue this summer.

  23. jax says:

    It was very hot here last week – hot enough for bikinis but that’s no excuse for wandering round a city in a voluminous tent. With her usual hooker heels it would have been much worse, so at least the sandals are a positive.

    I don’t ‘hate her’ Tasha – I’m sure she’s a very sweet girl. It’s her fashion choices that are often hilarious and so we have a bit of fun as we do with ALL the WAGS.

  24. Rachel says:

    Alex is a person, who none of us relly know but she is also a product.

    She sells herself in OK etc and has her perfume. When we talk about her it means we are engaing with the product so to speak. In the world of wagdom i don’t think it relly matters if us consumers have negative or postive things to say about the info a wag communicates about herself to the market, what is important is that we are bothering to say anything at all. I would think that is all alex would care about

  25. tasha says:

    Well, that’s the majority of complaints about her, no one’s ever gone against the grain. And it’s not just this place, in another forum they were dissing her for being at Pink at the first place. And I was like: “WTF, Stevie was there too! In fact, he was the one who did the tranny-boob touching!“

    And things like how she never watches all his matches like a good little wife should. I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t want to be there at Everton games, and I’m sure Stevie wouldn’t want her to be. And that she doesn’t look interested in the matches that she does watch? It’s because she really isn’t, which was something Stevie liked about her when they first started dating. But no one focuses on that, and she gets castigated for not turning up in bright red everything (which no one does on the VIP box anyway).

  26. RedGirl (Mrs. Casill says:

    Finally!! She left the hooker shoes at home!! <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" />

    But, my guess is for compensation, she wore a shower curtain <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  27. Pavi says:

    She definitely didn’t look preggers at the SATC premier and that pink dress was unforgiving so I think it’s just the dress in this picture.

  28. brandy says:

    Yay! Flats! And no bouffant!
    But is that a baby bump or just the flow of the dress?
    The gold bag is of course OTT and I can’t imagine shopping and buying things at Cricket on what seems like everyday, but she has on flats so I am willing to look over all the other nonsense!

  29. tammyv says:

    I would vote for Preggers, but she is wearing flats, but she didn’t look at all pregnant at the SATC premier a couple of days before this.

  30. Paris says:

    That is so funny, I can’t believe Alex is wearing flat shoes.

  31. Pavi says:

    AJ I have a huge issue with the stripper shoes so it’s refreshing to see her wearing shoes that don’t look like she could sprain her ankle.

    And I agree that the picture looks totally staged especially since she’s walking in front of the sign and carrying the Cricket bag.

  32. AJ says:

    Alex is thin but I think you have to be really skinny to pull off a dress like that. It’s going to accent every curve and make you look bigger than you are so you, hence the six month pregnant look. Not a fan of the dress myself (Paris Hilton wears similar ones all the time   <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="shut eye" style="border:0;" /> ) But I agree with Pavi, at least she gave the stripper shoes a rest.

    P.S. Call me cynical but it looks like a staged photo op to me. Especially since she has the Cricket bag. I’ve always thought they pay her to “advertise” them like shops do with starlets in LA.

  33. FabLove says:

    Natalie, was it boiling enough for a beach dress like that?

  34. natalie says:

    no it isnt actually that hot in england at the minute, forth official. it was absolutly boiling last week but now it back to normal

  35. dani,,PLQ,,Mrs Niko says:

    omg she looks preggers … you think she has something to tell us ?
    haha the sign is hilariouseast

  36. tasha says:

    No, i just hate how everyone is so full of hate for her just because she has fun. Her not being photographed with her kids all the time doesn’t mean she’s a bad mother, maybe she and Stevie decided that they were too young to have this much exposure. No one ever calls Stevie a bad father for not parading his kids at Anfield on the last home game. Total double standards.

    And I know he has the full time job that pays for everything but that doesn’t excuse him from not looking after the girls when she goes on holiday. He has a responsibility too, and it’s arguable that since his job takes him away so much that she does more of her fair share of parenting. I just wish more people focus on that, instead of “OMG SHEZ A BAD MUMMY FOR NOT BEIN PHOTGRARFED WID HER KIDZZZ ALL THE TIMEZZZ AND FOR DARING TO HAVE A GIRLZZZ NIGHT OUTTTT!!!11!!!“ ugh.

  37. Really, someone tell me – is it *that* hot in England right now?  Hot enough to have to wear a muumuu (sp?)-  i.e. beachwear – for shopping?  I don’t care how hot it is – that just looks stupid on the streets of Liverpool. 

    I think I might like the sandals, if I had a better look.  But still not for walking city streets.  Pool, beach, resort, cottage, yes.

    And she does look pregnant.

  38. louisquatorze says:

    Damn it, ‘trannies’ needs an apostraphe somewhere if it’s a posessive. C’mon, you guys invented English. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  39. Lil' says:

    funny pic
    yes she seems pregnant
    I kind of like her dress although I would not wear it too far from the beach

    funny it must be 25

  40. one_love=cesc_fabreg says:

    i think its a bump… or maybe its jus me… meh!..

    but i was lik lmao… if only i knew what was going thru her head at that point..  <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" />

  41. MrsMichaelOwen says:

    Yes Gina i was about to say is she preggers? what a poster though haha x

  42. FabLove says:

    GinaR, yes. She really does look pregnant..

  43. Gretchen Weners says:

    Can someone explain the sign? Alex looks like a hag. I just can’t like the woman no matter how hard I try! I even thought she looked nice at the SATC premiere.

  44. Pavi says:

    I love that she’s looking at the sign while talking on the phone…I wonder what she’s telling the person on the other end. 

    I’m not completely hating the dress and I’m so glad she’s wearing flats instead of her hooker heels.

  45. DC says:

    1. i’d love to read her thoughts at that moment. lmao.

    2. she does look pregnant, but i don’t think she is.

    3. love the sandals, not too fond of the dress.

  46. natalie says:

    hilarious, i bet the paps were waiting st the sign for her to walk past

  47. GinaR says:

    Am I the only one who thinks she looks pregnant???

  48. Anja says:

    Love that colour. (I wonder why…  <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />)

  49. DiorHeels says:

    Hate the dress…

    awkward moment haha!

  50. FabLove says:

    HAHA! I love how she’s looking at it and trying to think about it slowly.
    As usual, a Cricket bag in her hand, walking in the street, and talking on the phone.

    The dress is okay for the beach, I guess.

  51. Erin says:

    LOL!  Yes, Tasha.  That is absolutely the image we all promote.  Definitely.  *eye roll*

  52. tasha says:

    No, she didn’t drink when she was pregnant, Rusty. People here just hate her for having fun and not being the “perfect” image of how a mother should be: barefoot, pregnant every nine months, simpleminded and walking at least five steps behind Stevie.

    stfu, people.

  53. Rusty (Frau Ballack) says:

    I broke down and bought a new mouse; my computer is still broken but it’s easier to buy a mouse THEN call Dell…

    So Alex was drinking while pregnant? YIKES!

    I’m 5’5 (or so I say) and I’d probably look like &^%$ in that dress. She claims to be 5’10 and it doesn’t suit her either.

    BTW, I assumed that was Cricket, but that’s actually a store called Pink, correct?

  54. LoveLamps says:

    I’m 5’3”.  I’ll look like a large ball of lard in one.

  55. Erin says:

    The maxi dresses are everywhere this season.  I like them…have an orange one very similar to Alex’s.  I’m 5’10” and I think they look great on tall girls. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

  56. LoveLamps says:

    When did those dresses come back in style?  They are HORRID!

  57. Erin says:

    Haha!  Funny pic.  I actually think Alex looks good—dress and all.

  58. AJ says:

    Are y’all forgetting the pic of her at the SATC premiere posted yesterday or the day before? She’s wearing a skin tight dress and there’s no baby bump.

    My guess: Big bowl of pasta for lunch and unflattering cloth drapery.

  59. Danika says:

    Nice colour of the dress. She is not pregnant and I don’t think she will be anytime soon, fot God’s sake this woman plan herself (meaning:bought a lot of dresses and swimsuits)an holiday in America she will not want to be disturbed by somethink so trivial as a pregnancy.
    Second:maybe she had a drink before going out it seems that this is what gives her courage. Reading all her interviews I’d realized that she was drunk at all her great moments: before the wedding she had some glasses(in that morning so she is an early time type), before launching her perfume, before giving I don’t know what prize, before going at the hospital to give birth to Lily,before a photoshoting for Ok!.

  60. Alex either:
    a) just ate a big meal,
    b) left her control top panties at home along with her hooker shoes,
    c) it isn’t Alex

    I don’t think she’s pregnant. There were pix in the latest issue of the UK OK and she said she wasn’t keen to have more kids at the mo’. I think she’s just not sucking it in as she’s wearing a more comfy dress. It happens to the best of us!

  61. LHolis says:

    lol! susana baca

    security word: elms

  62. mickyb17 says:

    Heloo was that kickette’s humour??
    Were yoo trying to say that her summer dress was a silly sign shes preggers as well as trying to say theres literalya silly sign??
    Ne ways if im not mistaken girls abd boys seems like tha baby roumours are true… seems to be more talk about her bump than the silly sign!!
    I mean please the tranny probably enjoyed that more than getting a “bj” of some randomer.
    nice dress though and love the sandals too :D

  63. I have a very soft spot for pregnancy right now, don’t ask me why. Gimme! I like that dress, especcially the colour. Nice. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    TuMiradaYMiVoz, Phantom of the Opera, no?

  64. HoneyBee says:

    Damn it.Not shore if she’s pregnant or not-I don’t like to say anything bad about pregnant women so just in case I won’t have a go at her for wearing a blue tent. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="confused" style="border:0;" />

  65. FootballerChick43 says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE her dress.

    I’m away laughing on a fast camel at the sign.

  66. natalie says:

    by the way, what does it say ij the small print of the poster? to me it looks like it says, “and dont try and sneak in the back door-how cheeky!!“

  67. natalie says:

    no fablove i dont think a dress like that was acceotable in that weather but the again, is it ever acceptable?

  68. Sara says:

    Ridiculously unsuitable maxi dress, with sandals and the usual oversized handbag, watch and Cricket carrier bag. has to be Alex..

  69. Kiki says:

    She looks pregnant on that picture…

    is there a baby about to arrive??

  70. sarabee says:

    Thats a one way street (Victoria Street) that shes just stepped onto. With her back to the oncoming traffic whilst nattering on the phone. Im surprised she wasnt mown down by one of the many buses that swing round that corner soon after this was taken. (And no, Im not going to make any crass jokes about wishful thinking lol!).

    As for the big blue hospital blanket….just plain nasty.

  71. TuMiradaYMiVoz says:

    she looks as if she is enjoying a stroll in the *streets. nice to see her looking so relaxed.

  72. Asma:)CR7 says:

    She should have kept the maxi dress for the beach.

    And haha for walking past the sign, she must have got speechless for a few seconds.

  73. Rusty says:

    I ask “why’s she in Chelsea blue?
    And please tell me, when is she due?
    she loiters at Cricket
    and should get a ticket
    (S)he’s Alex, who we all treat like poo!“

    </ bad limerick >

    Yes, that sign should say “Squeezing our tranny’s boobs,“ thanks louisquatorze.

    In case anyone wonders where I’m about to disappear to, my computer is still broken (I can’t get through to Dell) and I have to stop spending so much time on the computers at the gym. See y’all soon.

  74. tammyv says:

    Every time I try on a dress like that I look pregnant. However thought they looked good on non-pregnant women was high!
