The Beckham’s actual reality was too dull, so they’ve created scripted characters for their “reality” show. You know, just like every other reality show ever. [POTP]

Kurt Cobain would have been forty this Tuesday. [Bree]

Reese Witherspoon and George Clooney? I’m sure this is not true, but I’ll dutifully pass along the rumor. [Holy Candy]

Paris Hilton’s birthday party in Vegas had not a single A-lister. She partied with midgets and monkeys. She’s probably going to check herself into rehab tomorrow just so someone will pay attention to her. [The Blemish]

Posh & Becks Can’t Bring Their Security Team to the U.S.

February 9, 2007

Victoria and David Beckham are upset that U.S. authorities have decided to bar eight of their longtime security guards from immigrating to the States with them. These employees do not qualify for U.S. work permits, because authorities believe U.S. citizens could reasonably do their jobs.

The Beckhams are upset about this, because their security team has been with them for years, and their sons reportedly look at them as uncles. Says a source, “It’s proving to be a massive headache because David and Victoria are comfortable and so happy with their current team.”

Certainly not a headache that $250 million can’t fix.

Posh & Becks Make Nice

February 7, 2007

Nice, France, that is.

I’m really glad that Victoria’s wearing denim from the Victoria Beckham line of Rock & Republic jeans (I love you, R&R!!! Feel free to send me free stuff!!! I’m a tastemaker, dammit!!). R&R must be much happier with her than Raymond Weil is with Charlize Theron.

Real Madrid is Totally Butthurt

January 15, 2007

I’m not going to claim to know anything about soccer (there’s a net and a ball and you always have to kick it except for the times when you throw it), but it seems a little fucked up that the Real* Madrid coach is benching David Beckham for the remainder of the season since news broke that he’s going to be moving to L.A. to play for the Galaxy.

Says the coach, Fabio Capello, “He is not going to play any more. He will practice, but he is not going to play.” He continues on, “The player’s decision is to go to Los Angeles. He has always been a great professional, but a player who has such a major contract with another team … we cannot count on him. I think one cannot have the same drive if one is already with another team.”

Yeah. Someone’s a little bitter. This doesn’t make any sense. Real doesn’t even compete with the Galaxy, right? Except for like, potentially in the World Cup, which won’t happen again for another 3 1/2 years. This is just stupid ego.

Meanwhile, Posh has been in L.A. since Saturday, house-hunting, shopping and totally not having sex with David Beckham when she is totally entitled to be having sex with David Beckham and seriously that is crazier than converting to Scientology, marrying Tom Cruise and faking a pregnancy.

*Note: For those of you who, like me, care about important things like celebrities far more than you care about sports, let alone foreign sports, this word is pronounced “Ray-al,” and I’m pretty sure it means “Royal” in Spanish. I’d confirm that, but it would take upwards of 30 seconds.

Well, the sooner Denise Richards marries Richie Sambora, the sooner she can leave him for her best friend’s husband. No, I’m kidding, that would never happen. Denise Richards doesn’t have friends. [A Socialite’s Life]

It’s about time we started rumors that Jessica Alba’s engaged. [The Blemish]

Britney Spears takes Sean Preston to the park, pretends to interact with him. I’m not sure if she’s more neglectful toward her child or her hair extensions. It’s a tough call lately. [Celebrity Smack]

Lauren Graham (aka Lorelei Gilmore) is reportedly a diva on the set. [Celeb Warship]

Is it possible all Saturday Night Live really needed was YouTube? Following the smash Internet success of “Dick in a Box,” the ailing SNL is back in the blogosphere with Jack Gyllenhaal’s brilliant rendition of Dreamgirls‘ “You’re Gonna Love Me.” [popbytes]

Los Angeles is Getting Even Sexier!

January 11, 2007

Los Angeles will be the new home of Posh and Becks! David Beckham today agreed to a five-year deal with the Major League Soccer team the Los Angeles Galaxy. This has been in the works for a while but I am so excited that he is going to be coming to the United States. I love soccer, and the MLS needs a boost which David will provide for sure. The president of the Los Angeles Galaxy is quite excited about this move as he stated today,

“David Beckham will have a greater impact on soccer in America than any athlete has ever had on a sport globally. David is truly the only individual that can build the bridge between soccer in America and the rest of the world.”

I’m guessing that they will be spending quite a lot of time with their new BFFs Katie and Tom. This move will provide a lot of tabloid fodder which I know that the blogosphere is quite happy about.


Where Can I Return This?

November 26, 2006

I can think of a lot of gifts I would have given Tom and Katie had they invited me to the wedding.

A golden scepter
Diamond encrusted cubic zirconium
Multiple Maseratis.

But you know what I wouldn’t have thought of? One of those hand written notes you used to give your mom that promised you’d clean the kitchen for a week.

Luckily David Beckham remembered. Per our pals at the SfGate Daily Dish; He’s giving Tom’s children soccer lessons as a wedding gift.

That’s right, Connor and Isabella are set to take lessons with good ol’ Becks when he’s not indisposed.

Whaa? This gift sucks ass for a myriad of reasons but here are just a few:

1) Katie gets nothing.
2) Katie’s little nugget Suri gets nothing.
3) Connor and Isabella don’t need soccer lessons because they won’t be soccer players. Plus they are eleven and thirteen. Plus they weren’t getting married (unless I truly don’t get how that religion works).
4) Posh Spice should fucking know better.
5) It’s not a GIFT! You can’t hold it!

It’s the kind of thing you offer after a few drinks, or maybe throw out there for giggles, but you get them a Goddamn real gift because they are damn near American royalty. You are worth millions; get them one big ass Crate & Barrel gift certificate. C’mon man.

Now, this is all just alleged and maybe he actually got them a platinum mini Ferrari for Suri to run over the Paparazzi with. Here’s hoping.

Now if you’ll excuse me I have to prepare my “free backrub” coupons for momma.

Courtney Love is finding it hard to get laid in sobriety. [MollyGood]

Check out the first single from AmIdol‘s Chris Daughtry, “It’s Not Over.” Honestly, an AmIdol fourth-placer is calling his first single “It’s Not Over.” I can’t even pick a joke. [Tabloid Whore]
