The Beckhams staying in LA

E_Beckhams_325 Victoria Beckham has dismissed speculation that she and husband David are planning to leave Los Angeles for good. The couple were reported to be considering a permanent move to Italy with their three sons after the footballer joined AC Milan on loan from LA Galaxy. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she said: "The rumours aren't true. We aren't moving. So many people come up to me and say 'I hear you're moving'. We love America. We've been very happy here."

She went on to say that David is "so excited" about returning to Los Angeles next month, adding: "We're just looking forward to getting him home. "It's been great for David, being in Milan, a great experience for him. We've enjoyed being there and supporting him, but America is our home. We're very happy and we're not going anywhere."

Victoria Beckham's underwear ad

Victoriabeckham Former Spice Girls star Victoria Beckham is set to follow in the footsteps of her soccer star husband David by starring in a £12 million advertising campaign for Emporio Armani underwear.

Victoria Beckham is to star in a £12 million advertising campaign for Emporio Armani underwear.

The former Spice Girls star will follow in the footsteps of her soccer star husband David by modelling the fashion giant's lingerie line.

Victoria said: "To be given this opportunity to work with Giorgio Armani is thrilling. I have so much respect for him."

The campaign will be unveiled for the spring/summer 2009 season.

Giorgio Armani said: "Who better than Victoria Beckham to launch our new global Emporio Armani underwear campaign?

"Victoria is a style icon, a dynamic lady whose influence and recognition will add great excitement to the continued international growth of our Emporio Armani women's underwear business."

The 34-year-old beauty posed for the photographs in Malibu, California, where she lives with David and their three sons.

The exclusive pictures were shot by renowned photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, who also took the photos of David for campaign earlier this year.

David - who caused controversy when his advertisement was unveiled, with some critics claiming the pictures had been airbrushed to make him appear well-endowed - previously revealed he was "nervous" about stripping off for the shots.

He said: "I was really nervous because I knew my mother was going to see it. When the adverts came out, she was the first one to call me and say, 'What are you doing?' I tried explaining it to her, but she didn't really get it!"

Victoria Beckham's LA stay

Victoriabeckham Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham will reportedly stay in Los Angeles when her soccer star husband David moves to Italy to play for AC Milan.

Victoria Beckham will stay in Los Angeles when her husband moves to Italy.

The former Spice Girl will reportedly not be joining soccer star David Beckham when he joins AC Milan on loan from his current US team Los Angeles Galaxy.

David - who has three children with Victoria; Brooklyn, nine, Romeo, six, and Cruz, three - is set to sign a short-term contract because the US Major Soccer League season is nearly over and he is desperate to remain fit to play in England's World Cup qualifying matches.

A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "David loves spending time in America with Victoria and his kids but he knows how vital it is to play top-flight football in order to maintain his England place.

"He will try to get back to Los Angeles as much as possible but it's not an easy commute.

"It's going to be difficult for his family. But his kids are in school there and Victoria is settled working in fashion, so it makes sense for them to stay there."

Earlier this week, it was reported David and Victoria's marriage was under increasing pressure because their busy careers are forcing the couple to spend large amounts of time apart.

It is thought David's new deal could be "the straw which break's the camel's back".

A source said: "Victoria still believes they can make it big in America, but she fears a move back to Europe could kill off their Hollywood future forever."

Victoria Beckham's karaoke date

Victoriabeckham David and Victoria Beckham enjoy fantasy karaoke dates where they pretend they have never met before.

David and Victoria Beckham enjoy fantasy karaoke dates.

The couple - who married in 1999 - have taken to spending Monday evenings at Los Angeles nightspot Villa, which they attend separately with friends before signing up to duet together - recently performing Sonny and Cher's romantic duet 'I Got You Babe' - but pretend they have never met before in a bid to keep their relationship fresh.

A source told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "It's a lot of fun - David and Victoria light up the night. They're still madly in love and it's not surprising they keep their marriage fresh with antics like this.

"They enjoy pretending they are meeting for the first time. It seems as though they haven't got a care in the world."

Meanwhile, David launched his own range of food - including fish fingers, omelettes and noodles - yesterday (16.10.08).

As he unveiled the GO3 range, aimed at encouraging children to eat healthily, the 33-year-old soccer star revealed both he and his singer-turned-designer wife enjoy spending time in the kitchen.

He said: "I love doing the cooking. I'm not saying I'm any good but I like to do it. I cook and Victoria cooks. She's great with mincemeat."

However, David admitted he sometimes struggles to get sons Brooklyn, nine, Romeo, six and three-year-old Cruz to eat the right things.

He added: "As a dad I know how hard it is to get kids to eat the right things. It can be difficult to get my boys to eat things like broccoli, carrots and fruit."

Beckhams theft: new arrest

Beckhams David and Victoria Beckham's cleaners' son Gareth Emmett, 25, has been arrested on suspicion of stealing personal items from the couple and selling them on auction website eBay.

David and Victoria Beckham's cleaners' son has been arrested on suspicion of stealing from the couple.

Gareth Emmett, 25, was held by officers at an Essex police station on Monday night (13.10.08) and quizzed about his alleged involvement in a scam which has seen a number of personal items taken from the pair's Hertfordshire home and posted on auction website eBay.

He was later released on bail but must return to the police station next month.

His detainment comes around 24 hours after his parents June and Eric Emmet were taken into custody to answer questions on the same allegations. All three suspects have been bailed until November 22.

The thefts were discovered when a friend of Victoria's parents, Tony and Jackie Adams, alerted them to internet listings for items including soccer boots worn by David and some of the former Spice Girl star's designer clothes.

It is understood detectives investigating the case have discovered an 'electronic' paper trail linking the missing items that have appeared on eBay to the Emmetts' home in Nazeing, Essex.

However, June and Eric - who have worked for David, 33, and Victoria, 34, for over 10 years - vehemently deny stealing from their famous employers.

Eric, 55, who is also the director of a Birmingham-based packaging firm, said earlier this week: "We're totally innocent.

"It's a total fabrication. It's all got totally out of control. There is absolutely nothing in it. We have never taken anything from them ever - end of story.

"We had free access to the house and I looked after the cars and other bits."

June, 56, added: "I have known Victoria since she was a Spice Girl and even before then.

'Would I really take anything? I don't think so. The story is total, total nonsense. I'm afraid we're scapegoats because stuff has gone out of the house unfortunately."

Eric - who has revealed neither he nor his wife ever signed a confidentiality agreement - is also threatening to lift the lid on the couple's personal life.

He said: "At the moment we are only allowed to say certain things until the police have finished their investigations, but things which have happened during our time with the Beckhams can all come out. We have a lot of stories."

Beckhams' theft shock

Victoriabeckham David and Victoria Beckham are "very shaken" after their housekeepers were arrested for stealing their personal items and selling them on auction website eBay.

David and Victoria Beckham's housekeepers have been arrested for stealing from them.

The thefts were discovered when a friend of Victoria's parents, Tony and Jackie Adams, alerted them to internet listings for items including soccer boots worn by David and some of the former Spice Girl's designer clothes.

David and Victoria were horrified to discover all the items up for sale on auction website eBay had been taken from their Essex property.

A source said: "Tony and Jackie were tipped off about some of David and Victoria's possessions appearing on eBay. They checked it out and recognised the items as ones which had either been given to David and Victoria or bought by them and placed in their home.

"When they checked out the house, they discovered items matching those that were being offered for sale were missing and called in the police."

The seller claimed to be a relative of a member of staff at David's soccer academy who had been forced to sell the items because of financial problems.

Officers arrested housekeepers Eric and June Emmet on suspicion of theft before releasing them on police bail.

David, 33, and Victoria, 34 - who live in Los Angeles but have flown back to the UK to deal with the incident - had employed the couple for more than 10 years.

A friend of the Beckhams said: "David and Victoria are hugely traumatised. To think they have been betrayed by people they trusted is even more upsetting."

June, 56, insists she and her 55-year-old husband are innocent.

She said: "I totally deny the allegations. This has all come as a bolt from the blue. The whole thing has taken us by surprise."

Victoria is not the only Spice Girl to have been hit with turmoil this week.

Her former bandmate Mel B was left shaken after a stranger threatened her husband Stephen Belafonte at London's Heathrow airport on Sunday (12.10.08).

The pair had flown back to the UK from Los Angeles with Mel's 14-month-old daughter Angel Iris and were being photographed by waiting paparazzi when a man reportedly threatened to kill Stephen.

An eyewitness said the male had recognised the former Spice Girl and given her a "hard time", adding: "There was a lot of pushing and she was in tears."

Mel later played down the incident, saying: "It's just one of those crazy things."

Victoria Beckham's faeces facial

Victoriabeckham Victoria Beckham has been having special facials containing nightingale droppings to give her clear skin.

Victoria Beckham uses bird faeces to keep her skin clear.

The former Spice Girl credits new £100 Geisha Facials, a paste made from nightingale droppings, for improving her acne prone complexion.

A source told Britain's Closer magazine: "When Victoria was in Japan recently she was admiring the local women's clear skin and discovered it was down to these facials.

"She was intrigued and when she got back to the US she found that some New York beauty salons now offer the treatment.

"She tried it and loved how great her skin looked. She also uses a cream derived from nightingale poo at home."

Meanwhile, Victoria is reportedly encouraging her close friend Katie Holmes to launch her own fragrance.

A source revealed: "Victoria has been very involved in her and David's fragrance, Signature, and is keen to extend her work in that field.

"Victoria believes Katie would be an ideal candidate for a personally branded perfume although she understands Katie's husband, Tom Cruise, won't follow in David's example and do a 'for him' version of the scent."

Victoria Beckham desperate to be more than a WAG

Victoria_beckhamRun for cover people as Victoria Beckham has got the grumps. Why? Because of David's foray into facial fuzz? Nope. Cos she's just realised she has absolutely zero discernable talent? No (but it should be). Rather, pouty Posh is annoyed that America hasn't fallen for her charms yet and that she's still better known for her husband's fame and glory. Just like here in the UK, then.

Talking to Closer magazine, a friend of the star revealed: "She can't bear being known as someone's wife and she hates the WAG label. She's getting offered the same TV work as Paris Hilton when she wants to be on a level with her pal Kate Beckinsale - but she just isn't an actress. Posh doesn't feel she's seen as a credible fashion icon yet. She's also disappointed that the TV work she is offered is always to play herself or someone similar to herself."

That's what happens when you’re not an actress – you don’t get offered top acting roles. Funny that.

Posh is also said to be feeling her age and bans anyone from mentioning her 34th birthday which she celebrated with showbiz chums recently. Which we just did. Sorry Posh. But don’t worry, being so incredibly geriatric and past-it at the crinkly age of 34 you won’t be able to read for much longer and probably can't take to this fancy, new Interweb thing anyway.

Geri Halliwell just loves Victoria Beckham

Spice_10dec07_big_250_2 Ever since they reunited to flog their Greatest Hits CD/ world tour/ Tesco's Christmas food, the Spice Girls are determined to convince us that they are bestest chums and that anyone who says otherwise is a big smelly liar. The latest attempt at girl power togetherness comes from their most mouthy member, Geri Halliwell, as she has been spilling all to You magazine on her friendship with the joyless robot known as Posh Spice.


"I have huge admiration for Victoria," gushes Geri. "She had her boys with her the whole time and she's done such a great job with them – they are all so well mannered and caring. Victoria and I are actually the biggest supporters of each other. We feel really proud of one another."


Not feeling nauseous yet? Not to worry, as Geri has more icky adoration to share with us all. And to really ramp it up, she's talking about the pair's kids.


"Romeo [Beckham] is just so sweet with Bluebell," she blathers amid some other guff about how Cruz Beckham and Bluebell have play-dates and how she's shopped with nine-year-old Brooklyn.


It's a good job they're such good chums as talk like that is enough to make everyone positively hate them.

Posh celebrates birthday with showbiz chums

VictoriabeckhambesobirthdayAnd so a big Star Trip happy birthday for Victoria Beckham, who hit the grand old age of 34 yesterday. And how did the Spice Girl celebrate the big day? By getting drunk with her celebrity husband and celebrity mates all in a grand celebrity setting, of course. Ahh - she's just like you and me, isn’t she folks?

Vicky B and her hubby, some past-it footie player you might have heard of, enjoyed a meal out with her current favourite chum, actress (I say actress, but having watched her in Van Helsing, I beg to differ) Kate Beckinsale and her director husband Len Wiseman. Desperate Housewives strumpet Eva Longoria Parker was also part of the celebrations, fitting considering it all went down at her fancy LA restaurant Beso.

An onlooker commented in The Mirror: "After lots of champagne, they stumbled out and went back to the Beckham's Beverly Hills mansion and partied till 3am."

Notable by their absence were former best buddies Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. Maybe Katie was too busy fighting her way out of Tom's home security system to make it. Either that, or she's officially been replaced by another scrawny, Hollywood robot. Tough break Katie.

Tom worried that Katie is morphing in to Posh

Katiehairret_450x300Remember when Katie Holmes was better known for being 'Little Joey Potter' on Dawson's Creek? Back then she probably ate all her greens, never forgot her please's and thank you's and was generally a sweet, wholesome, chubby-cheeked poppet, remember? So does Star Trip. That's why we hate to see her gradually morphing into close chum Victoria Beckham. And so does hubby Tom Cruise apparently…

Just look at the pair of them together. The hair, the gaunt expression, the pathetic neediness for their more successful husbands. They could be the same shallow, stick-thin person. And this is not acceptable for Mr. Cruise.

"Katie sees Victoria as a role model," says a source close to the A-listers. "She copies Victoria's look and even cut her hair the same way. She is very thin largely because she is following Victoria's strict 900-calories-a-day eating plan. She is copying Victoria's fad of eating seaweed shakes, frozen grapes and edamame beans. She is tiny."

Come on Katie – snap out of it and go grab yourself some grub. We've long lost Posh to the dark side of no food, smiling or silliness – but not you too Katie. Surely Tom must be able to coax her into eating something, it's hardly Mission Impossible (ho ho – see what we did there?)

Emma denies Spice Girls in-fighting

Eb2Emma Bunton might be better known as Baby Spice, but it seems this baby is having a bit of a sulk. The singer has rejected claims that the Spice Girls tour was blighted by bitchy in-fighting, insisting that the five girls prematurely called time on their reunion world tour for family reasons. Okay Emma – we'll try to believe you. "The tour was special for everyone. We were having the best time, contrary to some reports," insists the star earnestly.

"We were supposed to be at each other's throats when we were actually having a great laugh." At Geri's dancing no doubt. "We've grown up. We had far better things to do than argue amongst ourselves. It was emotionally charged, though, because we've shared too much history. It ended because we wanted to get back home to normal family life and the kids needed to get back to school, simple as that. There is no question of us falling out."

No question? Well, I think there was a question hence why you are publicly answering it. But claiming that your kids all had to hurry back to school? Surely, with your PR team you could have spun a more likely story than that old chestnut.

School children name David Beckham their top role model

David_beckhamWhen you were a kid who did you look up to and admire? Chances are they were slightly more inspiring than the current crop of celebrities that British children claim are their top role models. A new poll conducted by the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) found that a whopping 53% of sprogs want to be David Beckham. With his footballing prowess, hoards of lusty female fans and impressive bank balance – Mr. Beckham is one of the more understandable and logical choices found on the list. Unlike other names…

David's Spice Girl wife Victoria was inexplicably voted the second choice with 30% of the vote. Yes, she too enjoys a life of celebrity luxury and was once a hard-working pop star – but a role model for young minds? Still, it could be worse – Paris Hilton made it to number six on the list.

Elsewhere, sporting stars such as Chelsea's Frank Lampard and Formula One rookie Lewis Hamilton proved popular as are actors such as David Tennant and Keira Knightley, with music being represented by the Sugababes, Leona Lewis and Nadine Coyle.

Being in double digits, the idea that these celebrities are worthy role models has me scratching my head in confusion (not cos I have nits – urgh!), however the general secretary of the ATL, Dr. Mary Bousted, is far less surprised.

"It reflects the current media obsession with celebrity and the effect of celebrity culture on society as a whole," she explained. "However, we are deeply concerned many pupils' believe celebrity status is available to everyone. They do not understand the hard work it takes to achieve such status and do not think it is important to be actively engaged in school work as education is not needed for a celebrity status.

"Celebrity culture can perpetuate the notion that celebrity status is the greatest achievement and reinforces the belief that other career options are not valuable."

And let's be honest – not every girl aspiring to be a WAG is going to be pretty enough to pull it off.

The Beckhams hit up a sex shop

Beckhams20richardsonthumb_2They've been married for a few years now and so to show the public that they still have the hots for one another, the Beckhams were spotted visiting a Hollywood sex shop – talk about spice up your life. The couple hit up the Pleasure Chest adult store late at night, dressing rather plainly (in a fruitless bid to look like they didn’t want to be snapped), and clearly enjoying their saucy adventure.

"David grabbed a small shopping basket and stocked up on some goods," a source told The Sun. "Victoria was very vocal, cracking jokes constantly. They seemed to know exactly what they wanted and after asking an assistant where items were, they grabbed what they came for." And what sex toys do appeal to such an A-list couple? Apparently, massage oil, personal lubricant, a Cyberskin vibrator, a leather braided cane and a padded black collar and restraint. Wish I hadn't asked now.

Pals worry that Posh is "exhausted"

Poshwi2702_468x664_2Friends of Victoria Beckham (otherwise known as her staff) are concerned that she is wearing herself out. Speaking to Grazia magazine (cos the tabloids are so grubby), one chum revealed: "Victoria has been running on empty for the last few months and is very, very tired. The tour has completely drained all the energy out of her, as it did the other girls, but on top of her Spice Girl commitments, Victoria has continued to invest masses of energy into her fashion career. Everyone is very worried she might keel over."

Fashion career? As the pop one went so well. The pal continued: "Victoria kept saying how exhausted she was and there were moments backstage when she had to stop and sit down or lean against a wall because she felt so wobbly."

That could be due to blatantly eating nothing – go on girl, get a sandwich down your neck. But more importantly, do we believe such comments? Couldn’t they be a very convenient way to achieve public sympathy, and why does she need to work at such a reported break-neak speed anyway? She's set up for life and doesn't need to work herself into the ground.

Come on Vicky – have a sit down, put your feet up and have a nice relaxing cuppa.

Hollywood's 'coolest' kids revealed

0815suriHollywood's coolest kid? I kid you not. American magazine In Touch Weekly has ranked celebrity spawn and decided upon who is the 'coolest'. I have to confess, I'm a bit baffled by the notion of being deemed 'cool' when still not potty-trained. How could they have calculated such a thing? Did they ask take a poll in the playground and ask which kid has the best trainers and the most Panini football stickers? I don't think so. It's probably more an extension of their parents, a dash of designer togs and how much a photo shoot with OK! magazine is worth, but nevermind. Everyone likes to be thought of as cool, and so onto those impressive tots…

In at number five is Ava Phillippe – the daughter of Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon and her ex-husband Ryan. The number four spot is taken by our very own Brooklyn Beckham – edging out his brothers Cruz and Romeo to make the coveted list. Helene 'Leni' Klum, the offspring of supermodel Heidi Klum and Formula One boss Flavio Briatore is in at number three and at number two, narrowly missing out on the top spot is Suri Cruise (pictured). I had thought that the Scientology sprog looked a little like a slanty-eyed alien, but what do I know? And the one kid that all these famous faces look up to – click over for the number one coolest celebrity kid.

And the winner is (drum roll please) – Kingston Rossdale. With rock hunk Gavin Rossdale and the peroxide diva Gwen Stefani as your parents, 21-month-old Kingston has hit the genetic jackpot. The kid is often seen decked out in boho-trendy garb and has been described by his proud mother as "a chilled-out little guy". Keep up the good work Kingston, you'll have competition for the top spot soon with a sibling on the way.

The touring Spice Girls don't stay in the same hotel

Spicegirls1It was never going to be a long-term thing, but news that The Spice Girls are cutting short their world tour has had tongues a-wagging about fallings out within the girl group. They've been keen to appear chummy, with Mel B even getting her grope-on with Posh's boobs onstage, but new reports claim the pop quintet aren't even staying at the same hotel as each other.

A blabbermouth within the Spice camp revealed to 'The Mirror': "They usually stay in the same hotel, but that's changed. What was meant to be a chance to get together, have fun and make cash has become a nightmare. The only time they get together is for sound checks and the concerts. They lead separate lives.

"The tension has been bubbling under the surface for some time. Mel B and Mel C seem to have a real problem with each other. All this talk of family and solo careers seems far fetched. As far as I'm concerned, the bickering is the issue."

I love that even those in the inner Spice sanctum scoff at their solo efforts. Well, what do you expect when you reunite five competitive, ambitious girls in the glare of intense media scrutiny? Bitchiness about who looks the fattest and has had the best-looking offspring is only natural.

Top Five Celebrity Blogs: Cos they can look good and type y'know

Nowadays everyone wants to get their two bits in and every Tom, Dick and Harry are getting in on the act with their own blog. No wonder celebs feel this  afield they want to explore by joining the online world, where a PR can't moderate all the comments! So who gives us a good read and who is just plain pants? We investigate...


Number 1: Lily Allen's Blog

Definitely not a PR stunt to gain her popularity this blog features diary entries, photos, and the odd bit of bad poetry. Hey that's what kids do these days. She also reveals such 'exclusives' as feeling suicidal and contemplating liposuction. Oh, and when she cancels a gig cos she's under the weather she shows us a picture of her with the doctors note (see above) to prove she ain't faking it. Read her most famous quote after the jump.

'This quote from her blog made front page of newspapers worldwide.

'Fat , ugly and shitter than winehouse..that is all i am , im on my own in america again . I used to pride myself on being strong minded and not being some stupid girl obsessed with the way I look . I felt like it didnt matter if I was a bit chubby cause , im not a model , I'm a singer . Im afraid I am not strong and have fallen vic tim to the evil machine . I write to you in a sea of tears from my hotel bed in Seattle , I have spent the past hour researching gastric bypass surgery , and laser lipo suction'

Hmm. Over-dramatic much?


Number 2: David Beckham Blog

Wow, he can play and write? Apparently as he posted this on his blog- '

'Hello and a happy new year to you all. I’ve had an incredible start to the year already! I was lucky enough to receive the Football Writers Tribute Award last night, which was amazing for me personally. I was pleased to have Sven Goran Eriksson and Bryan Robson there at the ceremony saying a few words about my career. Both of them have achieved much in the game and are good people. It was also very emotional watching the highlights of my career so far. I’m so proud of what I have accomplished and I know I still have plenty more to offer. It was a special night for both me and my family, who were also there with me, and I hope I can create some more memories to add to the ones recognised yesterday evening.'

Has he really written enough, ever, to justify an award? Hmm.

Here's another snippet,

'I was really pleased to be called up to the England squad in August, it is always an absolute honour and a privilege to play for my country and its something I’d always hoped would happen again. Unfortunately, things didn’t go the way we wanted and we won’t be going to Euro 2008, which is incredibly disappointing. However, looking to the future, I feel I still have something to offer. I’ll always want to play for my country and I hope I can continue to do so. It was brilliant to go along and celebrate my Academy’s 2nd anniversary. When the Academy first opened I could only have wished it would be a success, and seeing so many children coming through the doors and enjoying the game of football has been great. Here’s to many more!The Galaxy’s tour of Australia and New Zealand was also an amazing experience.'

He's very positive isn't he? Almost sickeningly so, actually no, make that extremely sickening.



Number 3: Spice Girls Blog

Written by the Girl power girls themselves, their blog includes tidbits about heir tours, new pics and updates. A different Spice writes each entry and the tone verges from chirpy, to very chirpy with a constant upbeat theme.

'Happy New Year everybody, it's going to be a good one. Myself and all the Spiceys had a great Christmas. We caught up with our families, ate lots of mince pies and got some well-needed sleep! ' got together for a New Year’s Eve dinner at Gordon Ramsay's fabulous restaurant in Claridges. We got dressed up and had a great night. It was really lovely to see in the New Year with all the girls. We celebrated all the fun times from 2007 and raised a glass (or seven) to the ones to come and to the people who make them possible… especially you guys. THANK YOU!'

Oh and there's a lot of name dropping and thanks, gotta love that. You have to laughat a  post from Victoria about Mel B losing her  bracelet though-

'Talking of the show on Tuesday, Mel B lost her bracelet as it flew off in to the audience and we want to say a big thank you to David who picked it up and contacted our management company to tell us that he had it. We’re grateful to him for being so honest and we’ll be meeting up with him before one of our shows in January to say thank him in person.'


Number 4: Jodie Marsh's Website

Jodie_home You have to sign up for this which is a little annoying, but once in the delight you'll get from her ramblings by far outweigh any frustrations. You get great little snippets and video from her, and hilarious comments such as:

'Now...... get your bums off your seats, get to your nearest newsagents and get yourself this week's edition of Ok cos mine and Matt's wedding photos are in there! It's a huge spread with tons of pics that span from the actual ceremony right up to the party in the night time. My favourite pics are: the one of us kissing on page 92 (that was our real first kiss as husband and wife ie. the bit where the registrar says "you may now kiss the bride") and I love the really big pic on page 95 - it was taken just as we were about to say our vows. Oooh I also love the pic of my dad giving his speech and the pics of our families and the pic of Dave Courtney and his wedding present to us and I love the pic of us with Syd Little on page 101. Sod it..... I love all the pics. I love my dress, I love how handsome Matt is, I love how sexy my bridesmaids look and how smart the ushers look. I love the fact that all the guests are dressed in black and white and I love how natural and beautiful all the pics are.'

Remember they broke up quite soon after! Hehe.  She does love overusing her exclamation marks as well.


Number 5:Matthew McConaughey

Matthew_mcconaughey5 Yep, I didn't know he had a website either, and then I find out that he's been announcing potentially life changing news (for hm) on it, such as his impending fatherhood! Add to that the fact he has a rocking six pack and devilish smile and I'm adding this to my RSS feed.

''Got some blessed news… a celebration of life and bounty… a newborn conceived.. yes, my girlfriend Camila and I made a baby together… 3 months growing in her womb and all looks healthy and lively so far… we are stoked and wowed by this miracle of creation and this gift from God, and so excited for the adventure that will come in raising this child, being a mother and a father, and shepherding him or her through this life… from moms and dads, to family, to community, it takes the best will and support from everyone to raise the healthiest children we have in society… wish us the best, keep us in your prayers, and God bless evolution…'

At time of going to press this info had generated so much hype that the site has been overloaded and is temporarily down, however I can't wait to see the Bio and pics he has up. He does use an eye straining font for his diary though-change that!


Runner Up:  Perez Hilton

This guy started off as a nonentity but thanks to his witty, insightful and very bitchy website he soon became a celebrity in himself- one that writes about other celebrities! He now has definite celeb status- a party ain't a party if Perez hasn't commented on it. Go the blogosphere, for creating a home grown celeb.

Victoria Beckham models for Marc Jacobs... and shows how she can look good even in a plastic bag. Sigh.


Did you all fret about how tacky a Victoria Beckham modeling for Marc Jacobs s/s 2008 advertising campaign could be? I must admit I did – a little. But when this image was released, I was relieved and even had a giggle. Photographed by Juergen Teller, Posh shows off her tanned legs and the Marc Jacobs reverse heels in the campaign image and that’s all! Mind you it’s a rather awkward position, after all who falls into a bag and their legs are spread that wide?

Another bonus about this image is that it features a Marc Jacobs bag we might be able to afford. Can you buy carry bags from Marc Jacobs without buying merchandise?

Victoria Beckham tops Blackwell's 2007 worst-dressed list

Blackwells2007listthumb The lovely ladies at Catwalk Queen  have been busy today, letting us know the full and juicy results of the Blackwell hot or not list. While 2007 may have appeared like the year for Victoria Beckham to flex her fashion muscle, Mr Blackwell doesn't agree. The fashion critic has named the Spice Girl as the worst-dressed star of 2007 in his annual round-up of celebrity fashion victims. "In one skinny-mini monstrosity after another, pouty 'Posh' can really wreck-em," Blackwell said of Beckham.

The stars to make the list include Amy Winehouse, who comes in at second place for her "exploding beehives and tacky polka dots below."

But it's not just the Brits who are under Blackwell's critical eye, Mary-Kate Olsen entered the list in third place due to her messy style and diminutive frame. "She resembles a tattered toothpick trapped in a hurricane," he said.

Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas, also took a battering for her style choices last year in what Blackwell has described as one of the "most disastrous fashion years in recent memory." Really? I think Fergie's style actually improved in 2007.

Is Blackwell losing it? What do you think? Check out the full list below.

Mr Blackwell's Worst-Dressed List of 2007:

1. Victoria Beckham

2. Amy Winehouse

3. Mary Kate Olsen

4. Fergie

5. Kelly Clarkson

6. Eva Green

7. Avril Lavigne

8. Jessica Simpson

9. Lindsay Lohan

10. Alison Arngrim

Victoria Beckham has a make up range called V-Sculpt, who knew?


Hands up who knew Victoria Beckham had a make up line. Anyone?

If yours was in the air, you're more clued up on the poshest Spice Girl than me. If you didn't know either, then it's probably because the line is exclusive to Japan. Apparently she called it V-Sculpt because it's all about helping the typically round-faced gals of Japan sculpt their features with a V. Like they couldn't do that without Victoria Beckham?

You can take a look at the whole range at V-Sculpt

Year in Fashion: January - February 2007 - Couture, Oscar glam, Ugly Betty and Balenciaga


A very fashionable year got off to a great start as hit US television show Ugly Betty made its way across the pond and quickly found a place in the hearts of fashionistas across the UK. Camp, silly and completely over the top, we wish life working in fashion really was like life at Mode magazine. Along with America Ferrera’s lovable geek (whose outfits we secretly love) we also have secretary chic from Amanda, quirky glam from Christina and sheer drama from Wilhelmina. Plus, we all want boys like Marc and Justin in our offices…

anuary also bought us Haute Couture fashion week, and the word on everyone’s lips was ‘Dior’ as John Galliano showed a collection of couture gowns that were so elaborate and heavy most models were forced to stand very still in order to display them properly. Shalom Harlow had the honour of closing an oriental-gone-40s, Madame Butterfly inspired show dressed in a sensational origami wedding gown and a diamond headdress. This is not a collection we’ll forget easily!

February is always the busiest month in the fashion calendar as the first fashion weeks of the year loom and red carpet season really gets into gear. Our favourite Autumn / Winter collections to hit the catwalks included Christopher Bailey's tough glam black and grey Burberry Prorsum offering and Balenciaga's schoolgirl chic blazers and ethnic scarves.

Further into the month, the Oscars tipped the ‘glam’ scale into overdrive. Reese Witherspoon, Cate Blanchett, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman and Helen Mirren were among the best dressed on the big night, while Armani, Zac Posen and Marchesa lead the way in terms of designer column inches and starlets like Eva Green and Emily Blunt proved they'd be big news the rest of the year.

Stay tuned for March & April...

The Top Five Fashionistas of 2007


We all have our own personal style icons, from Katherine Hepburn to Nicole Richie, there is always a look that someone can take inspiration from. Here I am going to count down my five favourite fashion moments from 2007, from my five favourite fashionistas of the year.

Number one: Dita Von Teese

Although she makes her living by taking her clothes off, no-one can deny that Dita shines on the red carpet. She always manages to look classic and elegant with that slightly gothic edge. On November 15th when she attended the fashion industry’s battle against HIV/AIDS at the ‘7th on Sale’ gala, she looked incredible in this black and gold Marchesa evening gown.


Number Two:  Gwen Stefani

From her time fronting the ska-fused No Doubt to her Alice in Wonderland themed solo debut, Gwen has always got people talking about her fashion choices. Over the last few years she really has come into her own as a style icon. My favourite fashion moment from her this year was on September 5th when showcasing her Spring 2008 L.A.M.B range. She accessorized her teeny tiny hounds
tooth dress, from the range, with the perfect accessory, her son Kingston held firmly by her side.


Number Three: Victoria Beckham

Mrs Beckham has had many ‘That Dress’ moments. This year was no exception. My favourite, and the look that has spawned countless copycats, was when she stole the show as David signed up at the LA Galaxy football club on July 13th. Wearing a pink ‘Moon’ dress by Roland Mouret, only seen on the catwalk days before, with a Pink Birkin handbag, and her blonde Pob, she takes a nod at the traditional LA look, without going that step too far into Barbie territory.


Number Four: Lily Allen

When she started her career, Lily Allen brought a whole new meaning to chav-chic. With her vintage ball-gowns matched with Nike trainers and gold doorknocker earrings, she was certainly difficult to ignore. This year she has still been seen out and about in fabulous ball-gowns, but her taste has become more refined, perhaps because she is one of Largerfeld’s newest muses. Having lost weight after a health scare in the autumn, she looks elegant and poised in this Chanel dress that she wore to the pre-view of the Chanel Autumn/Winter 2008 collection in London.


Number Five: Katie Holmes

Although Katie Holmes has been criticized by many who feel that she is dressing at least twenty years older than her age, there is no denying that she completely outshone Tom Cruise at the recent Bambi Awards in Dusseldorf. Showing off a new fringe and bob while wearing a
Monique Lhuillier outfit, she looked every inch the glamorous film star wife.  


1st Runner Up:  Jennifer Lopez

After months of is she/isn’t she J.Lo finally confirmed her pregnancy on the last night of her tour. While her Cavalli designed stage outfits were meant to disguise the bump, the Grecian gown she wore to the Conde Nast Media Groups 2007 Movies Rock at the Kodak Theatre on December 2nd made her look radiant without being over the top, Christina Aguilera take note.


2nd Runner Up: Keira Knightley

It has to be Keira in the green dress she wore in Atonement. Although not strictly a fashion moment as it was confined to celluloid, there is no denying the fashion world sat up and took note of this 1940s wonder, with countless fashion spreads on how to perfect this look, many featuring a version of that dress.

Victoria Beckham steals the show on Ugly Betty

Oh Victoria. She may not be to every-one's taste but the Yanks can't get enough of her cut glass accent, skinny frame and stylized bob. You have to give credit where it's due though, as she does steal the show in TV sitcom land Ugly Betty, modelling a bridesmaids dress better than the bride herself!

Victoria Beckham to film a cameo for the Sex And The City movie?

Victoriab77943049 Victoria Beckham is taking Hollywood one popular TV show after another. After the cameo in Ugly Betty, she was reported as saying, "I got asked to be in the Sex And The City film, which I would have loved to have done, but because I am in full-on Spice Girls rehearsal mode, unfortunately, I can’t do it right now." With fellow Spice Girl, Geri Haliwell making a cameo in season 6 (episode Boy, Interrupted) of the television series it would have been fitting to have the most ‘fashionable’ Spice Girl appear in the movie.

One insider said, “Victoria Beckham is probably one of the biggest fashion icons in the world, so it makes sense to have her in the Sex And The City movie. The show is all about stylish, powerful women, so Vic will be a natural star. The producers are doing everything they can, including moving around filming schedules, to get her on board... Sarah Jessica Parker and the other girls are very excited about the prospect of Victoria Beckham joining the cast.”

Steal Victoria Beckham's style for under £70

Victoria Beckham faces criticism for many reasons but one thing which she is usually (I said usually!) quite good at is wearing the right clothes! She wore this dress way back in the summer when the Spice Girls reunion was a mere twinkle in her eye. Her origami pink dress is by Roland Mouret but now you can copy her style in time for the party season with the dress from Oli. The pleat neck dress is a great way to show off curves as it will exaggerate your waist. This dress is just £60 from

The Spice Girls to front Tesco's festive campaign


Supermarkets are currently enjoying wheeling out the celebrities to promote them. The ASDA ones feature stars such as James Nesbitt, Victoria Wood and Ian Wright working in their stores, while Morrisons happily have Alan Hansen or Nick Hancock singing their praises. Now Tesco have gone one better by roping in the newly-reformed Spice Girls to front their festive campaign. Sporty, Ginger, Baby, Scary and Posh filmed two adverts for the store, each earning a whopping £1million for their efforts.

In the pic, the girls lounge around surrounded by their gold discs, lots of champagne and some tasty finger food (which none of them will probably eat.) A source revealed: “It’s an amazingly lucrative deal for the girls, and Tesco are thrilled as it’s a real coup. The ads are very funny as the girls insisted it had to be a send-up.” The source was right, as the Tesco spokesman is thrilled: "We are thrilled to be working with the Spice Girls for our Christmas campaign. We feel that the new commercials really emphasise Tesco's commitment to offer something different and exciting this Christmas." The adverts will air during Coronation Street on November 12th.

Hear the Spice Girls comeback single, Headline

After all the hype and excitement, now the comeback single from The Spice Girls is with us. The song, Headline (Friendship Never Ends) is a girly ballad in the vein of 2Become1, rather than one of their up tempo dance numbers. Its weird hearing the girls together again on a new song after so long apart, but as long as it means no more Victoria solo stuff, I’m all for it.

Listen to it here and see what you think. Is it a classic destined for greatness or has the magic gone?

Posh has 'worst breasts', says scientist; World says "We know"

PoshspudsIt was only yesterday that I likened Victoria Beckham's boobies to two unsightly spuds on AvailableForPanto (StarTrip's sister site). Now, a scientist has stated the obvious (possibly at some expense) by saying that Posh has the worst type of breasts possible.

Patrick Malluci's research into the perfect pair of breasts concludes that the Spice Girl's are the worst, while model Caprice has the best.The scientist will discuss his work at a Breast Enlargement Conference in London next week.

The report claims that the ideal breast should be top heavy and have a nipple that points marginally upwards. Malluci commented: "The ideal is a 45 to 55 per cent proportion - that is the nipple sits not at the half-way mark down the breast, but at least 45 per cent from the top." In fairness, most of us could tell you that Mrs Beckham's boob are horrendous just by looking at them.

Victoria Beckham is homesick


It seems that LA hasn't taken to Victoria Beckham and her horrendous chest spuds. As a result, it has left Posh wanting to leave the USofA.

The Spice Girls pop mimer is rumoured to be feeling homesick and was allegedly looking very thin and unhealthy during a recent trip to the Mirabelle restaurant. A source told Star magazine: "Things are not going well for them in LA. Victoria has been particularly upset and sobbed to David that their move may have been a mistake. She feels lonely and homesick. Jennifer Lopez and Victoria were getting on well but are no longer in touch. Jen doesn’t want to be caught in the hoopla surrounding the Beckhams."

However, Beckham hasn't completely given up on living in the US and is keen to resolve her problems. The source added: "She is determined to make a go of it in LA and she and David will persevere." Good. We don't want 'em back.

In the news: Keira thinks she's big, Britney's help quits and who hates Paris?

Keira- Everyone is abandoning the sinking ship that is Britney Spears's career. Her manager Jeff Kwantinez has quit and so has her attorney, Laura Wasser who has been representing Britters throughout her custody battle with ex Kevin Federline. Maybe she should advertise for some replacements on YouTube like P Diddy. [People]

- “Weight is a big issue in Hollywood because I’m twice the size, height and everything else, of most of the girls who are going in to see the director for a part. When you realize that I am, at my size, one of the largest actresses there, you start to think, ‘I don’t think it’d be healthy for me to stay here much longer.” - Keira Knightley. Is she getting herself confused with someone else or does she have one of those wobbly fun-house mirrors? [Perez Hilton]

- Victoria Beckham is not going to be throwing any welcome parties for new L.A. resident Rebecca Loos. Mrs. Beckham is said to be devastated that her hubbie’s reported past bit-on-the-side is moving in on her turf and possibly jeopardising her acting aspirations. As an Oscar was practically her’s, eh? [Digital Spy]

- I love Dave Grohl. Not in a creepy stalker way, but even non Foo Fighters or Nirvana fans have got to hand it to the guy – he’s got style. And just to prove my fan worship worthy, the rock god has spoken out against socialite/ sex video star Paris Hilton: "Paris is f***ing lame. She's more offensive to me than anything. She's a total, raging, disgusting, rich, lazy party slut. I pray that my daughter will not turn out like her." Yeah, I’ll bet she does too after that outburst. [The Sun]

Victoria Beckham or B-Movie Monster?


Do remember the old advert for Chewits? The one with the monster who looked a bit like Godzilla? Well, you notice a striking resemblance between that and Victoria Beckham's new dress.

Looking for all the world like a thin reptilian from a b-movie, Posh drew gasps when seen strutting out and about in this monstrosity. Don't believe me? Take a closer look at this picture and observe the look of horror on the face of the woman in the background.

The Beatles said "Money can't buy me love"... it looks like money can't buy class either. Still, David looks pretty sharp in his jumper/jeans combo.

Sarah Harding hates Victoria Beckham

SarahhardingkbSarah Harding is not one to bite her tongue. Oh no, the Girls Aloud singer loves to flap her gums and she’s been at it again, this time taking a swipe at fellow girl grouper Victoria Beckham. First band member Cheryl Cole dissed the idea of pop group reunions in a less than cryptic dig at the reforming Spice Girls and now Sarah has hit out at Mrs. Beckham for, of all things, her hairstyle.

Sarah has had her peroxide bob cut into a boyish crop to avoid being confused with Victoria. Over to Sarah to explain: 'I got my new haircut only because I hated when people compared me with Victoria Beckham. That's the only reason why I cut my hair’ clarifies the 25-year-old. ‘I hate her so much and I just can't stand it when I get compared with her all the time. I don't understand why it's such a big deal with me and her. I mean it's quite stupid. I am so glad my hair looks different now and I really hope people will stop this nonsense.' Yes people – you heard Sarah. Stop comparing her to the fame-seeking, blonde-barneted, pop puppet – they have absolutely nothing in common.

Lorraine Kelly compares Posh's boobs to Mitchell brothers

Poshboobs Lorraine 'Can You See My Growler?' Kelly has had a dig at Victoria Beckham, claiming that the Spice Girl's busters look like EastEnders duo the Mitchell brothers.

The LK Today presenter insisted that breast enhancement surgery has left Beckham's assets so pert that they resemble the bald heads of the soap stars, played by Ross Kemp and Steve McFadden. When asked by Heat whether she would ever undergo a breast augmentation procedure, she said: "No! You end up with these Posh-looking things. I think hers look bizarre - like the two Mitchell brothers have gone and hidden under her frock. It's really odd and quite sad."

You know something? She's absolutely spot on. To think that Sally Lindsay (who played Shelley on Corrie) referred to Posh as "like a fly on its hind legs" and... well... it makes you wonder why people think she's a looker!

The top five most unusual celebrity friendships: The stars we never thought would be chums


Like true best friends, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie are so close that they share everything – a penchant for dating celebrities, a tendency not to each much and now both have completed jail time (paltry though the sentences were.) And so in celebration of this bond, we at Star Trip look to other celebrity friendships that have garnered their fare share of column inches. We’re not interested in any of those obvious alliances that make sense – chums like Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox or Peter Kay and Corrie star Sally Lindsay. We want those that have you screwing up your face in confusion – they’re friends you ask?


Number 1: Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes


Who knows how these two become friends but since that mysterious introduction Mrs. Beckham and Mrs. Cruise have become the world’s most photographed best friends. Posh is said to bestow Katie with marriage and fashion advice, though what Katie brings to the party we don’t know. She has copied Posh’s new cropped hairstyle, tags along with her when shopping and at football matches and hasn’t even managed to snag her any movie roles yet. In her favour, Katie and hubbie Tom did co-host a welcome to LA party for the Beckhams, but I wonder if their bond goes even further. Maybe they have already planned the future marriage of their children – I said maybe.

Number 2: Tom Cruise and Joss Stone

Joss Stone is hobbling around on crutches these days with crazy purple hair, but one of the most surprising things about the West country soul singer is her friendship with Tom Cruise. Yes, the Tom Cruise, that sparkly-toothed, air-punching, sofa-jumping megastar. On her Hollywood chum, Joss says: "He's just a guy. It's like a huge compliment, 'cos he is at the top-top-top of his tree. He's lovely. He's just a normal guy” Really? I thought Scientology beat that out of you. Having hung out with Tom and his kids she believes she has the inside scoop on the movie star: “He doesn't want anyone to hurt me, because he knows I'm just starting. He's like, if you ever need anything, just call me up. He's a lovely, lovely person. That's all it is. And he's really good at what he does." Don’t forget that plug for his acting talents Joss. What kind of celebrity friend would you be if you forgot to promote his work?



Number 2: Pamela Anderson and Liz Hurley

Apparently they had been buddies for years but it wasn’t until they were spotted together at theVanity Fair Oscar Party in 2001 that the world learned of the friendship between Liz Hurley and Pamela Anderson. People were surprised – what could the two possibly have in common? Well, there’s the limited acting ability, fixatation with their own breasts, rollercoaster relationships with other high-profile men, oh we get the point.

Number 5: Arnold Schwarzenegger and David Spade

Guess who turned up to help celebrate funnyman David Spade’s 43rd birthday back in July? Non other than Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Governator was caught on camera at the bash held at the Buffalo Club by website TMZ. In the footage, Arnie looked almost bashful that the paparazzi had clocked his friendship with Spade, as though some nasty secret - but we say be loud and proud Arnie. After all, they would make the ultimate in little guy/ big guy pairings, with Arnie kicking ass while Spade delivers the pithy putdown. Someone make this film now!



Number 4: Liza Minnelli and Martine McCutcheon


The media circus that was the 2002 wedding between Liza Minnelli and David Gest had a seemingly never-ending guest list. An invite to this showbiz ‘I do’ was considered no big deal in many elite circles. However when it comes to the actual wedding party for celebrity unions usually only the most trusted, intimate and close friends are involved. So everyone was surprised when ex Eastenders star Martine McCutcheon turned up as a bridesmaid. Yes – she wasn’t in charge of the guest list, the gifts or any other pointless job, she had been chosen to trot down the aisle as part of the main event. Sure there were about 15 bridesmaids, but Martine has found her celebrity chum to be an inspirational force: "If it hadn't been for Liza I would still be really depressed. I met her at a time when I was feeling disillusioned and she really helped me. She made me believe in myself again." And that’s what friends are for – aww!

New Spice Girl Album to cost $2 million!

And I'm not talking about how much it will cost to make, or the girls exorbitant salaries, no I'm talking about the actual album itself in all it's CD like glory. Well, to be fair you are buying a particularly special CD when you purchase their greatest hits as jeweller David Morris has imprinted it with $2 million  worth of precious jewels. each letter is decorated with a different gem and symbolizes a different band member. S is made from Amber and represents Victoria Beckham, ruby pink P is Emma, Mel C's I is Diamond, Geri's C is sapphire stone and the E is emerald and stands for Mel B. Bling bling baby!

Victoria Beckham shows us her boobs


Look, it's not like we're some cheap and easy smut covered rag who's obsessed with stars bit and bobs (well maybe a little) but when ex Queen of the UK scene decides to sunbathe in the nude we feel it's our patriotic duty to bring it to your attention when Victoria Beckham takes in some rays, and be it that she forgot/misplaced her top, so be it. She does boast a very impressive pair of *natural* boobies though.

Vb2And here we have her again, slightly more guarded by her hulking bodyguard. Sweetie, if you don't pose topless people won't want to pap you; but then again as VB they probably will.

Victoria is in the best dressed list


The lovely Victoria must be thrilled, as it finally seems she is getting the acclaim she deserves, and in the best possible way for her; a mention in glossy fashionista's bible Vanity Fair, which says that her and Becks together are 'greater than the sum of their parts ' They are joined by such other style icons as Brangelin and Jennifer Aniston, their new neighbours as well. Go team Beckham!

Celebrity Diet Watch: Victoria Beckham likes Skinny Tea!

We all know that Victoria Beckham looks fantastic, even though we can doubt whether she ever actually eats anything, but we have discovered one of her beauty secrets, so maybe we can now aim for similar size zero proportions. Apparently Vic is a big fan of Pu-er tea, which contains thermogenic fat busting properties, and helps her maintain hers streamlined shape as it kills hunger pangs.

This ancient Chinese tea come sin cake form which you break into pieces and boil in water, and it's thought Victoria first learnt of it while living in Madrid. Other celebs are also fans of this tea, including Joss Stone and Jerry Hall, as the tea is full of antioxidants which promise to protect the skin from UVA rays and slow aging. It also raises the metabolism due to its particular compounds, which means more calories are burned from the same activities.

Promises like this don't come cheap, at around £140 a case , and you are supposed to drink it three times a day to get the full effects. With prices like that it may just be Tesco Value tea for us.

Posh's leg - what the Hell is wrong with it?

Posh_blog_11_3Pictures seem to be all over the papers today of Victoria Beckham’s dodgy looking leg. Never one to miss out – here for Star Trip is the snap that will have Posh gnashing her bleached teeth and tearing at her bleached hair. Just what is wrong with her leg? All theories welcome. I know exercising is beneath her (it would involve taking off her hooker heels) but surely David could advise her on a few stretches to help. Or maybe her new Hollywood pals could give her the number of a good plastic surgeon, as the one that (may or may not have) done her boobs, needs their license revoking.

Cosmetic surgeries of the stars revealed

Air-brushing, good lighting, constant supervision from a make-up artist (how very Victoria Beckham) – there are many ways for celebrities to look better on the front cover of a magazine than how they look first thing in the morning. What is quite depressing is how many of them take it a step further and get cosmetic surgery. Slebs, with the media, present the world with unattainable ideas of beauty and then struggle to meet their own standards. For those of you having a spot break-out today, hate your wonky nose or wish you had fuller lips, never fear as Star Trip is at hand to make you feel better. We present a quite revealing YouTube clip of stars who have had a bit of help from their surgeon, from those you knew had, to those that you didn’t. According to this, no-one in Tinseltown is actually naturally good-looking – score!

Victoria comes to America.. they're welcome to her!

Debate has raged in the office today as to whether the terrible TV offering that was 'Victoria: Coming to America', was a spoof, or just proof of Victoria's head emptying itself of brain cells. Whilst her franchise and popularity is huge, I'm not surprised the idea of a mini series got canned as the show struggled to fill the hour slot it held. It featured such delights as Victoria twirling in a dress and house hunting in the £11 million range. She sighs about how busy she is, yet has time to spend half an hour purchasing and dressing a blow up doll to resemble her. I'm going to try to avoid puns about hot air, and dies with a prick but oops, there you go. I find it amusing that her two best friends are her make up artist and her hairdresser; people she pays to be around her. Enjoy.

Victoria Beckham's TV debut

Yes, this programme will be hitting British shores tonight, detailing the exciting times had collecting a driving licence, grocery shopping, and seeing how VB goes nowhere without a complement of bodyguards/make up artist/ someone to carry her over sized handbags. For those who can't wait till tonight here's a sneak preview

Victoria Beckham in quite witty shocker

75398775_2Victoria Beckham is once again the biggest news of the week with her husband David. The pair have just moved to LA for David's start with his new club the LA Galaxy, and of course for Victoria's fashionable stance and pout to get a cross-Atlantic work out.

Amid the publicity mania our Vic' has sure learned a thing or two about how to create some press. During filming for her reality TV show Victoria Beckham: Coming To America (which is yet to hit screens) she hit out at one rich and famous American star, with surprisingly witty results. When asked about Eddie Murphy she quipped, "Eddie Murphy? Beverly Hills C**k."

Surprisingly sharp for the ex-Spice Girl. She was of course defending ex bandmate Melanie Brown who got knocked up by the cheating actor, before he denied fatherhood of the tyke. If Victoria keeps up this cattiness she might just be thought of as something more than a walking wardrobe, could she be considered witty and intelligent? Maybe that's a stretch.

Spice Girls to get matching tattoos

SpiceMmm - matching tattoos, that's classy. We all know that the best way for slebs to advertise their love for one another is a quick trip to the tattoo parlour, and it seems that The Spice Girls are headed for Tattooland as we speak. Of course, the artwork designed will have a beautiful poignancy and significance that can only be best expressed by painful graffiti on the skin. David Beckham's tattoo artist has apparently been commissioned to come up with some such guff which features a circle with each of the girl's names and represents their journey. Each of their names? Their proper names, as no-one actually calls Posh Victoria surely? Are we going to have the Mel's written with initials or are we talking how their names would appear on their passports so as not to get confused? Maybe it could say Mel squared, like in maths - oh, such possibilities.

The official line is "the girls are all really keen to mark the momentous occasion, the only slight problem is that Mel C had sworn she would never have another tattoo. She's waiting to check out the final design before she decides. Emma will wait until she's given birth and is feeling up to the ordeal but they want to do it en masse anyway." So from that I understand that Sporty's not really interested (as she was rumoured to be with the reunion itself) and Emma really is a big baby.

The Beckhams indulge in some soft core cover art


Posh and Becks have never been shy about baring their bodies, after all, what would be the point of all that starvation and buffing if they didn't have something seriously toned to show for it? What does surprise me though is the fact that there pics have a definite pornographic element to them, David's in particular seeming to model poses from Gay mags such as QX and Attitude. I know you have a nice butt honey, but I don't need to see you spreading it.

More pics after the jump.


Here we have David undressing Vic clad in some seriously tighty whitey's, and next we have the piece de resistance, the bum boys pose of David giving it large *ahem*.

Top Five Bad Boob Jobs: The Celebs who should have stayed an A cup


Number 1: Victoria Beckham

Yes, I do realize there are other more deserving candidates for the number one spot (see number two) but most people don't quite catch the public eye in the same way as VB; so she is a victim of her own success in these rankings. Fair enough she wanted bigger boobs, there's no harm in that; but you'd think someone with her money and connections could have done better than those strangely shaped oranges super-glued to her chest. What about subtlety, style, sexiness? It seems she just went out to the surgeon and said 'Hey! I want big boobs that get me more attention than Geri. Do your worst!' And they did. However, our Vic denies having any work done, so perhaps she just had some strange growth spurt during her mid twenties, that created that tennis ball effect. Either way, these are some of the strangest breast I've seen in a while, so our number one spot deservedly goes to Mrs beckham of the *ahem* natural breasts.

Number 2: Lolo Ferrari

Well this lady actually died because of her breasts, so I think she's learnt by now that carrying two watermelons stapled to your chest is not a  great idea. They were big, they were bouncy, they spoke of years of depression and neuroses and all I can really say is I blame the surgeon. Don't you know that counselling is the answer, rather than a knife when we're dealing with bazookas the size of Britain. God rest her soul.

Number 3: Gemma Atkinson

Now there is just no excuse for this! Fans of Gemma will have drooled over her in Hollyoaks, and that unfortunate late night show that was Hollyoaks Uncut, but even the most loyal fans will have to wonder why the gorgeous creature that she is needed to deface her perky young protuberances with the aid of silicon.. and create a rather lumpy effect at the same time. Now rather than glorious fresh skin and a natural hang we have this strange shelf like effect that does nothing for her.


Number 4: Janet Jackson

Well she wasn't going to make the top five best list was she? No our Janet seems to like a bit of surgery, flashing, anything really that will mean people don't immediately question her about Michael. There's living in a shadow and then there's going to far, and having a whopping dent in your right boob is not a valid career choice. Well, at least she'll have somewhere to balance her drinks..

Jodiemarshnipples Number 5: Jodie Marsh

Jordan was also in the running for this position but that poor lass has just had a baby so we thought we'd let her try some yummy mummy stuff for a while before we began besmirching her name again. Instead we have Jodie 'who wants to marry me Marsh' and I think she makes a fine candidate. Over-sized mammary glands? Check. Breasts that look like they have the consistency of rubber? Check. Unnessessarily exposing breasts at any given opportunity? Check. Nipples that seem to be sown on? Check. That's all folks.

Spice up your life: They're back!


There are those who look back at the 90's with a fond tear and a wistful remembrance of their platforms and over sized hoodies, and others for whom that decade creates memories of social awkwardness and acne. In either case the Spics Girls won't have gone unnoticed and now, practically a decade on hey are reforming to grace us with their vocal talents girl power ethos and yummy mummy status. You can take the baby out of a of a woman but you can't take the girl out of spice, and here we have Dominatrix Spice, Bi Curious Spice, Boho Spice, Preggers Spice and Burlesqu Spice ready to grace our TVs once again. Watch out for hissy fits, diva demands, and of course the 'my spice is better than yours' inevitable arguments. From this pic it seems that Victoria is angling for the top spot and as a WAG and size zero she has definite points in her favour.. but then Geri has a child called Apple Lemon Blueberry Madonna.

Victoria Beckham to cameo in Ugly Betty

50572Victoria Beckham, ex-Spice Girl, WAG and vacuous clothes rack is set to appear in US hit show Ugly Betty. Britain's most useless export is reportedly lined up to appear as herself in the next series of the programme, coinciding with her imminent move to LA with little David.

Star of Ugly Betty Eric Mabius, who plays Daniel Meade, said "Victoria is keen and so are we. We can see her fitting in as a cameo now she is about to be big in the US." Big? That's optimistic.

Her equally high profile though slightly less useless husband David has just signed to US 'soccer' club LA Galaxy and of course Vic's career will be flown over with their belongings and the kids (where've they been lately, actually?). Expect more and more pictures of Victoria "embracing the LA lifestyle" in the near future. Which of course means more blonde, more tanned, same pout, less flesh.

What a role model.

-Despite Mrs Spears claiming her daughter is her 'most treasured child', it seems these sentiments are returned with Britney having allegedly issued a restraining order against her mother, to prevent her from visiting her sons. there are also rumours that mommy dearest likes to abuse prescription medication, and no one likes a doped up granny round their little ones.

So much for Paris's new superficial free lifestyle. [A Socialite's Life ]

-Yes we all know the Spice Girls are reforming.. but did you know that the delightful harmonies of Wannabe will be spiced up with a lotta digital power? Apparently ten years on their singing talents have decreased somewhat, so the tech is necessary to prevent mass rioting amongst the fans. "As they sing, the computer program corrects the mistakes so that the sound comes out as the desired sound - so they appear to be able to sing really well live," said an industry source.

The Spice Girls Reunion.. and the rules


Yes, the spice up your life lot who brought girl power to the 90's with short skirts, bad voices and a penchant for waving their hands around a lot are making a come back. Add a  couple of years, a few stretchmarks and some failed attempts at solo careers, the biggest band is back, and planning to take us by storm again. That is of course, if they abide by certain rules. Rules you say? Is this the strange dating etiquette book that was so popular a few year back? Well, not quite, but in a similar vein the rules revolve around keeping a man happy, so in that sense it's still very  Victorian, The man though is Simon Fuller, ex manager and pop mastermind. The mogul  has given them strict instructions to stay schtum on their earnings, and pregnancy is not allowed either. I'm so glad that girl power has reached this level.

Too Posh for the Box? Mrs Beckham gets her TV show slashed.


Ahh, let's all get our sympathy hats out for poor old VB, whose dreams of an earth shattering LA debut seem to be have smashed with the series producers from NBC pulling the plug on her six episode show. The TV programme, cleverly titled, 'Victoria Beckham: Coming to America' is now being cut to an one hour special, rather than a mini series. Oh dear, she'll have to console herself with a Rodeo shopping trip.. or maybe a visit to the salon. Hmm.. what does Victoria actually do? Was the show just going to follow her on an extended shopping spree? With hubby David now playing for England again, he probably wouldn't have been making a huge appearance, and without the male totty it would just be V on her own; and there's only a limited amount of time we can give to her latest over sized sunglasses. I'm guessing the Beckham marriage bed may be a little frosty nowadays.

Victoria Beckham goes to Graduate Fashion Week


Victoria looks pretty smoking as she turns up to offer her sartorial opinion at Graduate Fashion Week. She's recovered well from her zebra print min dress disaster, looking classy and composed in a  monochrome dress. And she was being polite- "I've had so much fun today, thank you for inviting me," she said, a far cry from the histrionics we usually associate with her.

Entrepreneur of the Year - Victoria Beckham?


Hmm, I could understand style icon of the year, or an award for best hairstyle makeover, but what entrepreneurial designs has VB brought to our lives? True, she scooped the Woman of the Year awards as well, for ... umm, I'm not sure. On receiving the awards she said,  "During my days as a Spice Girl I was blessed to stand on many stages and get many awards. I've got to say that hasn't actually happened since then."

Her entrepreneurship relates to her own brand perfume, Harrods sunglasses range and let's not forget those jeans she 'designed' either. Truly a role model for us all. Glamour's editor Jo Elvin surely think so, gushing that, "she is indicative of the modern woman, successfully juggling the work/home life balance, and is a role model in terms of achieving it all'. Sure, why not?

Victoria Beckham flashes her bra at the MTV awards


To be fair, Mrs Beckham clearly intended to flash that hot pink brassiere, which doesn't remain a Victoria's secret, but one wonders why she felt the need. Surely when you have golden balls and millions at your disposable it's not necessary to dress up like an extra from Eastenders? Far be it from Star Trip to bitch- this is purely constructive criticism- go back to your gowns Vic, and stay away from the zebra style print- it doesn't work in Essex or LA.

Mrs Golden Balls was recently puled over in Los Angeles for a car related reason. Could it be that she was driving without an American license? Current reguations state that holiday visitors have up to 14 days without needing to change their license over USA style. However it has been rumoured that Mrs Beckham's offence may have been intentional as the pap snaps of her seem remarkably high quality.. If you want to try and meet her in person, enter the competition at Lost Weekend to win a trip to LA,and expereince the high life a' la Beckham.

Posh Spice doesn't understand the meaning of 'eating disorder'

73743610 I like the skinny look, I really do. I'm one of the few people on the planet who thinks that Nicole Richie looks better now, and I just love size zero. But I know I'm in a fairly extreme minority there. And I know it's mostly to do with my own issues about weight and body image, and that I'm a little bit screwed up in that arena. I'm messed up, but I accept that.

Unlike Posh Spice, who thinks that you can be very controlling over your food intake yet not have an eating disorder. Did no one tell her that being very controlling over your food intake is an eating disorder?

She told heat magazine: In the '90s "I became obsessed with what I looked like. I would look in the mirror and check the size of my bottom, see if my double chin was getting smaller. I began living on vegetables and nothing else. But it never occurred to me that I had an eating disorder. I do control my eating. But I think there is a big difference between someone having an eating disorder and someone who is controlled about what they eat."

Posh named godmother of Geri Halliwell's sprog

A060103_p20_ggeriposh_v Geri Halliwell is a strange woman. She's also a strong woman. She's battled through eating disorders, yogarexia, and a host of esteem and image issues. And she's picked Posh Spice to be godmother to her daughter.

Now, I've only met Posh once (truefact!), and she seemed nice enough. But if eating disorders and esteem issues are a mix of nature and nurture, Bluebell Madonna's going to be stuffed. After all, however healthy Geri is, Posh is hardly the sort of lifestyle role model you'd want around your young daughter, is she?

Bluebell's other godparent will be Kenny Goss, George Michael's boyfriend. The christening will take place over the weekend.

Posh so thin she has to drink wine

Poshblondex17_175x125 Apparently Victoria Beckham is so thin because her stomach has shrunk to such a tiny size, that she just doesn't have an appetite. A source tells Closer magazine that Posh has to drink one to two glasses of wine, just for her to feel like eating. Beckham's spokesperson says the claim is "utterly ridiculous and there is no truth in it at all". I have to agree, considering that she must weigh 46lbs, and that two glasses of wine would probably knock her off her feet. Perhaps I'd believe the story if they said two thimbles of wine.

Beckham reality TV show may not happen

Becks_450x338 Sad news everyone: the NBC reality TV show that was supposed to document the Beckham's move to LA may not happen after all. (I know this is soul shattering news, but please try to hold yourself together.) Apparently the only footage that's been filmed so far is of Victoria Beckham looking for a house and a school for her kids. A source has revealed that, "David and Victoria are not well known out there and they have not yet been able to convince any of their celebrity friends to come on." The Metro also reports that although it was rumoured the couple was paid £1million for the show, it turns out they've only been paid £300,000. Poor Posh, I just hope she doesn't get too desperate for footage and decide to go to Tom Cruise's cult Scientology meetings.

Avert your eyes now! Posh Spice and Katie Holmes are designing clothes together. For children!

Katieff327071 Not content with dressing like a Stepford Wife rapidly approaching retirement age, Katie Holmes has decided to ruin all love of fashion for children around the world. BFF Victoria Beckham, who can fit into kids' clothes, also wants to try her hand at designing them. Oh yay. When these two visions collide, the children of the world will be dressed like frumpy middle-aged Eurotrash hookers.

The fabulous A Socialite's Life has tracked down a picture of what is believed to be a sketch from the collection, and all it really tells us is that neither of them can draw for toffee. I'm sure that'll make designing a collection easy as pie.

Posh lets her hair down and is one of us. Or something.

Taishan93005dc The Beckhams went out and got drunk. Oh lordy me. I know everyone's wetting their pants because good ol' Posh, who is completely and utterly in control of her public image at every millisecond of the day, was caught letting her hair down and was photographed pissed for only about the third time in 10 years of tabloid dominance.

Oooh, how exciting.

But is anyone out there dumb enough to think that a woman who is that controlling of her image wasn't in control even when drunk? I'm not implying she wasn't pissed, but that she got pissed in public so that people could see that good ol' Vicky was just like us, and goes out on the lash with Dave to let her hair down. Next week we'll see her in Mecca Bingo, and shopping at Asda. Because we're all chav scum, natch.

I'm not going to show you the pics, because that's pandering. If you want to see them, go find them. I'd much rather look at this baby panda.

Posh n' Becks spend 10 minutes' salary on £750k party

06posh_becks_wedding Never a couple to do things by halves, the Beckhams will be saying farewell to the UK with an American themed party costing an estimated £750,000. Posh and Becks are old hands at the expensive party routine; last year's pre-World Cup extravaganza was said to have set them back £500,000. For one party. I know the Beckhams aren't alone in this behaviour, and that their parties are often charity fundraisers, but the fact that they spend so much when we're facing global crises related to poverty and 600,000 children in the UK under the age of three - let alone the rest of the world - live below the poverty line...

Anyway. A source - presumably totally unrelated to the Beckhams' PR machine - told the People newsaper: "They spent £500,000 last year and this year's bash will be even bigger. It is called The America Party and organisers are busy planning. David and Victoria are both really excited about relocating and want to make sure they have a good send off. Themed tables will each represent one of the 50 states, food will be American themed - even the waitresses will be dressed in American diner-style uniforms like something out of Grease. It's going to be really tacky and all very tongue-in-cheek - which totally sums up Victoria's sense of humour."

A miserable Katie Holmes seeks support from Posh Spice

Tomkatusmag032107 The TomKat relationship has long been the subject of internet ridicule, and many believe the marriage to be a sham defined by the terms of a rigid contract. But the mainstream press has been less cynical about the whole affair - until now. According to Us Weekly magazine, Katie Holmes is so despairing of her relationship with Tom Cruise that she spends hours on the phone with Victoria Beckham, seeking advice.

A source close to TomKat told the magazine all sorts that you'd think anyone close to the couple would keep to themselves - or at least confidential chats with Katie's parents. "Katie has been crying over the phone. She's frustrated. Tom is denying her every single thing. ... Once, Katie and Victoria talked on the phone for four hours."

While you can't learn much more without buying the magazine, the cover also implies that Cruise has near-total control over Katie, as he screens her phone, threatens to take her credit cards away, and moves his family in. Oh, the joys of living with mother-in-law.

Posh goes blonde and may have reality TV show...but is Becks happy?

Vicbeckhamrtn_468x649 Posh seems to be transitioning to life in LA quite well, considering now she's gone blonde. It actually looks cute on her, but this whole "I Heart LA" act could be just that: an act. Mrs.Beckham has apparently been slamming the phone down on Becks, and seems to be getting lonely roaming the streets of LA alone. Sources close to Beckhams apparently told Grazia magazine that: "She thought this was her time to pursue everything she wanted but she underestimated what a major upheaval it was for David. Victoria has been thrilled to be socialising with Katie Holmes. But it's like he's just left struggling to adjust." Trouble in paradise? We may get to see it all unfold as it's rumoured Posh has signed a £10million contract with a US production company to have a reality TV show that will document her family's move to LA. Now that I'd like to see...

Posh goes to the Oscars, yet still doesn't smile

Poshblunt While schmoozing at Elton John's Oscar party, Posh stopped weeping tears of "OMG! I'm at the Oscars! In AMERICA!" joy just long enough to say hello James Blunt's girlfriend, Petra Nemcova. How awkward is this photograph? Posh is like, "Oh dahling, hello, how are you, I've missed you. You look so fabulous. I'd smile at you, but it hurts me." Meanwhile, poor Petra is trying desperately not to get sliced by Posh's razor sharp elbows, and James seems to be spying the free appetizers on the buffet table. Or looking eyeing up Jessica Alba. Who knows with him.

Celebrities like to blog, too

Victoria_beckham0 It's painful enough having to hear most celebrities be interviewed and speak without a script.  However, it's recently gotten a whole lot worse, as many celebrities have start blogging. The Sun reports today that not only does Prince Harry have a Facebook account, but air heads celebrities like Danielle Lloyd and Victoria Beckham have even been plugging away online, as well. Danielle has a Myspace where she recently "apologized" for her BB behavior, and share her other deep thoughts on how  she gets excited when"everyone including Paris Hilton" comments on her dresses.

Victoria Beckham's blog has a lot of depth and insight into her life. For example, Victoria wrote:

"I'm still finding my way around as LA is a big place I'm trying to work out how to get from Santa Monica to Malibu, and from Brentwood to Bel Air... But we'll get there. The sooner the better - the kids want to know the quickest way to Disneyland!"

She's got it rough. Let's all just cross our fingers that Lindsay Lohan doesn't start a blog...or David Beckham for that matter.

Posh makes throw rugs look trendy

Victoria Beckham seems to be so distraught about leaving LA, that she stole Tom Cruise's throw rug to remind her of the better times. Oh, Posh. You sentimental fool! Does anyone else think she looks like Michael Jackson with those sunglasses on?

Victoria Beckham sings Wannabe on the karaoke

Posh sure has perked up for the Holidays

Poshbig_450x350_1 Posh, as seen here, doesn't exactly seem to be feeling overly festive. However, two big parts of her seem to have perked up for the Holiday season. I hate to have to point this out, but she's looking a little...unnatural.

Back when her world was "Spicy" and Beckham-less, didn't she seem softer and more friendly? Now she just seems sharp, and Nazi like. It's been reported that after the birth of her first child in 1999,she got breast implants, and now, almost eight later it appears she's had even more work done.

Now, I don't personally care. She can do whatever she wants. However, I  wonder how many times she knocked over the Christmas tree while trying to hang ornaments. Maybe Santa will bring her a industrial strength, wool jumper for Christmas to protect the young Beckham children from losing an eye or even losing a limb.

Victoria Beckham has less hair but more nookie

Poshair It sounds like a fair trade-off to me. Apparently the reason Posh ditched her hair extensions recently was because she wanted more sex with hubby David Beckham. "David prefers my hair short. With hair extensions you can be in the midst of passion and one flies out. We both prefer the new cut for that reason among others!" she tells today's Sun.

Now, call me naive, but surely if you were actually in the midst of passion, you'd barely notice a hair extension flying out? It doesn't say much for David's technique. Or maybe Posh's. Actually, maybe they're both Not That Good at sex, what with all the looking in mirrors worrying about their hair.

It's a wonder they've managed to spawn three times if you ask me. What if you notice a broken nail while getting jiggy? Or worry that your designer outfit's getting rumpled where you tossed it on the floor. Or you remember THAT BITCH Rebecca Loos at a crucial moment. Grim.

Billie and Kate lash out against extra thin role models

Untitled_43  Kate Winslet and Billie Piper have both spoken up recently against stars like Victoria Beckham and other skeleton-esque celebrities. The lovely, curvaceous Kate said this to the BBC on Sunday morning,

"It is unbelievably disturbing what's going on at the moment...It's so disturbing because young girls are impressionable from 11 up to 19 or 20 even...They're trying to figure out who they are and they want to be loved, and what I resent is that there is an image of perfection that is getting thinner and thinner and it's truly upsetting to me."

Amen, sister. Billie Piper, who has battled anorexia in the past, apparently can't understand why young girls idolize the body of Victoria Beckham,"My sister is 13 and she's already worried about her figure. She loves Posh and I say 'Come on Ellie, she's tiny. What's wrong with Shakira? She's sexy, curvy.' But she has no interest."

So refreshing to hear healthy celebrities actually speaking up! If only more starlets would rebel and clue in the rest of the show biz world that eating is, like, so hot right now.

Victoria Beckham goes to Oxfam

Victoriabeckhamhair_1 Maybe bling has had its day. Victoria Beckham has finally joined the rest of us mortals in realising that the best bargains nowadays are to be had in charity shops. Yesterday, Posh visited a West London Oxfam shop to deliver the news that 87-year-old proprietor Joe Mitty has won a lifetime achievement gong in The Mirror's Pride of Britain awards.

But that's not all Victoria did. The paper notes that she also shelled out £20 for "a sexy vintage frock". Which admittedly shows that you get a better class of Oxfam are like in West London - round my way, you're more likely to find a rumpled old-man's shirt or an armful of Max Bygraves albums.

Victoria Beckham turns wedding planner for Katie Holmes

Posh_3 Want the perfect wedding? Call in Victoria Beckham. And not just because she has time on her hands, either. Fresh from helping Cheryl Tweedy choose her wedding dress when she got hitched to Ashley Cole, Victoria is now apparently giving Katie Holmes tips for her upcoming nuptials to Tom Cruise in Italy.

"This is fantastic news for Katie," a source tells today's Mirror. "Not only has a date been set for her big day, she has got fashion queen Victoria helping with her wedding plans. She wants to have a stylish low-key hen do and if Victoria's around she'll be there helping her celebrate."

That'll be comedy purple thrones for the wedding, then.

Victoria Beckham: e-commerce guru

Victoriabeckham_7 Could Victoria Beckham end up as the poster girl for the Web 2.0 generation? Clearly not Maybe. Today's Mirror reports that Posh plans to launch her website in January, to sell her first DVB denim fashion collection. The paper suggests she's signing a deal with Canadian firm Western Glove Works to make the new range of jeans, and that she'll also be flogging Beckham-branded sunglasses, handbags and shoes on the site.

"Victoria is the mastermind behind this and is calling all the shots," a source tells the paper. "She's working closely with the design team on setting it all up and is relishing getting her teeth into it. The website will be great for people who want to get their hands on stuff like her bag range which is only currently available in Japan and costs a fortune to import."

Tsk, haven't these people heard of eBay?

Katie To Play Posh

Katie Now, please understand that here at Star Trip we're not the sort of people who will judge an artistic endeavour before we've seen/heard it.  That would be wrong and ignorant of us.  But, faced with the rumour that Tom Cruise has pitched the idea of a David Beckham biopic - let's just say eyebrows were raised.  The fact that Paramount optioned the movie caused those same eyebrows to move higher.  And, well, certain people will be taking tweezers to the backs of their necks in future with the news that Katie Holmes is set to play Posh.

A British actor is being lined up to play Becks, which will undoubtedly lead to guesswork aplenty in the press.  No word yet on who'll play Rebecca Loos.  An insider said "Tom has a brilliant grasp of what the public want to see".  Really?  And he STILL made The Last Samurai?  [Toni Kelly]

David Beckham: Victoria Is Addicted To Shopping


David Beckham has gone on the record with something we all knew; wife Victoria is addicted to spending and shopping, and not always with their own money. She's also apparently a bit tight-fisted, as David says: "Victoria loves shopping. She goes out and buys loads of expensive bags and clothes. Then she says, 'I bought you something', and hands me this leather bracelet that cost about one euro."

The Great British public should not be allowed to vote in polls

Keiraknightley Sorry, that may sound harsh – and could cause a few problems for our entire system of parliamentary democracy – but it's the inescapable conclusion from a couple of stories in today's papers. First, Victoria Beckham has been voted the country's top "yummy mummy" on account of "always looking perfectly groomed". That's not grooming, that's not-eating! Second and third places were taken by Nigella Lawson and, er, Angelina Jolie. Who's not even British.

More proof that us humans are just too stupid to be allowed to vote on anything comes in a poll for Yahoo to find the greatest ever movie starlet. Keira Knightley takes the prize, just ahead of Judy Garland and Scarlett Johansson. Yahoo defines a starlet as "an actress who people instantly think of as being young, vivacious, stylish, popular and – most of all – talented." So what Lindsay Lohan (yes, yes, yes, hmm, and er...) is doing at number six in the chart is anyone's guess.

A Week With Posh & Becks

David_5 Somebody needs to let the Beckham's know that this really isn't good enough. Week after week, I set out to write 'A Week With Posh & Becks' and I mostly have very little to say. Now I'm not suggesting they should have a screaming argument in public just to give me something to write about (though it would be nice), I'd just like them to, you know, do more than play football or shop.

The usual rounds of "friends fear for skinny Victoria" have been doing the rounds in the 'gossip and lifestyle' magazines, but that aside, there is NOTHING for me to say here. If P&B aren't careful, I'm going to have to start making it up. And I have a very overactive imagination ("David Beckham Eaten By Comeback Dodos!").

A Week With Posh 'N' Becks

Victoriabeckham_5 Another relatively quiet week for the couple who single-handedly kept the celeb rag market afloat during those difficult early years.  All we can offer you is the story of Vicky Beckham's amazing six-hour booze bender, as covered here yesterday.  Only six hours?  Girl needs to come out with Mr Kelly on St. Patrick's Day if she thinks that's impressive.

Considering she's looking to sprog up again, we can't help but wonder if a night of "wine appreciation" might not be the best idea.  Meanwhile David was training with his Real Madrid team-mates, so while one partner was hanging out with a load of over-paid, over-hyped celebs who spend all their time getting manicures and shopping 'til they drop, at least Victoria was doing something worthwhile.

Tabloid Tales: Victoria Beckham hits the town in style

Poshbeckham Whatever Photoshop work training it takes to get a bum as bootylicious as Victoria Beckham's is in her new perfume adverts has obviously taken its toll - Posh hit the town with a vengeance on Tuesday night, partying with celebrity chums in a casino until 4.45am according to the Mirror. She was out celebrating Gordon Ramsay's wife's birthday, and after a posh meal (poor the chef who had to cater for Mrs Ramsay's big night!), the group headed on to a West-End "gambling den".

Was David there? Of course not, he was training in Madrid rather than partying till the break of dawn. He's not Ronaldo, y'know. [Stuart Dredge]

A Week With Posh & Becks

Vbeckham_3 As usual, the last week has included plenty of news about David and Victoria Beckham. Does a day ever pass without something, somewhere being written about them? Maybe I need to emigrate to Yemen to escape the media onslaught...

Anyway. Victoria did the unthinkable and cut her hair, prompting Star Trip's very own Stuart to get very excited about the newfound ability to use the phrase "elfin good looks" once again. But Victoria has rained on that parade by changing her mind and getting extensions put back in. Qu'est ce que c'est le point?

There's also been news that the duo plan to release a set of his and her's fragrances, which is some spectacular bandwagon jumping, it must be said. The scents will be called 'Intimately'. It'll be David's second aftershave launch; his 'Instinct' brand became the best selling of all time when it was released.

Victoria is also said to have been invited to visit Suri Cruise, but is apparently shocked by the list of things she can and can't do whilst there. Posh isn't allowed to take any photographic equipment or touch Suri and baby-talk is banned. How very odd.

That's the latest from Posh and Becks Towers - see you next week. [Toni Kelly]

The Beckhams Try For A Daughter

Vbeckham_2 Am I the only one who finds the Beckham's open determination and desire to have a daughter a bit hard to take? Star magazine have reported that the couple are renting a Spanish mansion - at a cost of £14,000 per day - to focus on baby-making, and this time they want a girl after three sons. Victoria has even spoken out about her desire for a daughter: "I wouldn't mind having one or two more children - and I'd love to have a girl. I can imagine helping her with her make-up and choosing her clothes with her."

Let's imagine their "special time together" goes to plan and Victoria is soon repeatedly denying then eventually admitting announcing she's pregnant, and it turns out to be a boy. The world and his wife knows they wanted a girl, and surely that poor kid, if male, is going to grow up knowing that. It's a good job they're rich: I see this leading to a lot of therapy.

  "I don't hate Victoria Beckham, I just think she gives a bad image to young children. No one should be that skinny. I think it's really bad. I don't care how much she says that's her natural weight. That's just bulls**t. She gets photographed every day and she doesn't eat anything!  Kids live in a celebrity-obsessed society. She has a responsibility not to look like that."

Victoria Beckham To Be Godmother To Geri's Daughter, Bluebell.

Vbeckham_1 It looks like one particular Spice Girls rift is healed. According to new magazine, Geri Halliwell is set to ask ex-bandmate Victoria Beckham to be Godmother to her newborn daughter, Bluebell.

The pair are said to have grown increasinly closer during the pregnancy, when Mrs. B was on hand to offer advice. A source told the magazine: "Victoria is probably one of the few people who is close to Geri. She was like a sister to her when she was pregnant."

However, Victoria's 'advice' and sister-like affection may have gone too far. Closer magazine have claimed that Victoria encouraged Geri to diet before the birth of Bluebell so she could get her figure back in super-quick celeb style. The concept of dieting during pregnancy has been rubbished by medical experts, so maybe Geri shouldn't take all of her Posh friend's advice. [Toni Kelly

David & Victoria Beckham Renew Their Wedding Vows.

David_3 It seems a week cannot go buy in showbiz without a new story about the Beckham's marriage. This week, however, there's no PAs or suntan experts around and it's actually a positive story about their relationship. For those of you thinking this might just be good PR for David during the World Cup we think alike maybe they're just happy?

Star magazine reports David recently surprised Victoria with a ceremony to renew their wedding vows. Following continued reports of his infidelity, let's hope David takes them a bit more seriously this time! The ceremony took place at their Madrid home and a friend revealed: "David keeps saying how they are getting on better since they moved into their home in Madrid. They are truly operting like a solid family and renewed vows are a celebration of being able to spend the rest of their lives together."

I've promised myself not to be cynical today, so it's probably best I leave this entry here. [Toni Kelly]

Coleen vs. Victoria For Battle As Number One WAG.

Coleen_2 Coleen McLoughlin has seriously put fellow footballers' wife Victoria Beckham's nose out of joint. Victoria, 32, is reported by Star magazine to be seething over Coleen's new place amongst the football WAGS and her continuing success as a fashionista. Victoria is so annoyed by her younger rival she's been calling in favours from designers like Roberto Cavalli and Donatella Versace, determined not to be outshone by tabloid favourite and all round good time girl Coleen.

During a WAG night out, instead of joining Coleen et al at the main table, Victoria and Cheryl Tweedy separated themselves from the pack and dined alone, supposedly discussing life in a girl band. Coleen and pals ran up a bar bill of £700, whilst the skinny popstar minnies spent just £47 on diet Coke and sushi. Way to enjoy yourselves, girls. [Toni Kelly]

Tales from the tabloids: Is it safer to text-message or smoke crack at 50mph?

Jadegoody_1Plenty of gossip in today's tabloids - some of it's even nothing to do with the World Cup...

  • Jade Goody is snapped text messaging while driving at 50mph, risking a £1,000 fine (oh, and a horrible painful death). “It’s outrageous, she is supposed to be a role model,” says an RAC spokesperson. Although he could be talking about the fact that she’s still famous.

  • The Mirror splashes on Corrie star Craig Charles doing a Doherty (i.e. a four-hour ‘crazed crack cocaine bender’) while being chauffeured back from work. Well, Betty’s hotpot does that to a man.

  • The Sun reckons England’s WAGs (Wives And Girlfriends) face a battle against Sweden’s FOFs (Fruar Och Flickvanner) today, although the Swedes are pessimistic. “They’re the underdogs because the WAGs are so famous,” says a Sweden ‘team source’.

  • The Star reveals that Big Brother housemate Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace (hang on, isn’t she meant to be from the street?) has appeared on a “raunchy” website specialising in shots of ladies in uniform. They don’t print a link, as they’re promising “more sexy photos” tomorrow. Tsk.

  • England footballist Gary Neville is a soft-rocker, says The Mirror. He entertains his team-mates with songs by Elton John, Bon Jovi, Oasis and U2.  Let’s hope England aren’t Living On A Prayer tonight... Yes, I did make that up myself.

  • Ex Hearsay star Suzanne Shaw fortuitously manages to lean out of a balcony in her bra just as a paparazzo is walking past. Fancy that. The Star has the pic.

  • Finally, there's a heartwarming tale of a five-year-old girl who woke up from a coma when played James Blunt’s ‘Your Beautiful’. And no, it wasn’t listening to his album that put her to sleep in the first place, you harsh people.

Cheryl Tweedy Voted Hottest WAG Over At The Sun

CherylOver at The Sun, their readers have been voting on the hottest English WAG (wife and girlfriend) of the World Cup, and the results have just come in. Pleasingly, the public don't seem to favour skin-and-bones Posh Beckham, as they placed Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Tweedy in at number one with 31% of the vote. Several unknown's followed, as robot-dancer Peter Crouch's girlfriend Abigail Clancy had 15%, Joe Cole's partner, Carly Zucker received 13%, and coming in laughably fourth, Victoria Beckham, with 8%. And what of Miss Chav herself, Colleen McLoughlin? The money-hungry Eastender was lubbed with a measly 4%, very surprising, considering it was the white van-driving Sun readers who were voting, after all. [Katherine Hannaford]

David Beckham Hits Back At German Newspaper.

David_2 Yesterday we told you about how a German newspaper has been slagging off David Beckham, and the England captain has finally had the chance to consult a PR expert for the appropriate cutting response dragged himself away from his hectic training schedule to comment. Becks said:

"When it comes to my family that is one thing I won't accept and never will.I find it sad that one person drops to the level of criticising my family, but it is one sad person thinking of what they can do to put me off my next game."

OR, maybe they just hate you? [Toni Kelly]

David Beckham Fury At German Newspaper.

David_1 Here at Star Trip, we like to kid ourselves think that we report on celebrity gossip with a tongue-in-cheek-not-sucking-up-to-anyone flair. However, we're well aware that there's a line and, being good little journalists, we try not to cross it (though the line doesn't exist when it comes to Heather Mills McCartney). Others, so it would seem, don't think the line exists at all in any circumstance. Well how else could you explain what German newspaper Bild have been saying about the Beckhams.

Much to England captain David's annoyance, they lashed out at the entire family. Quotes include Beckham's Mum being branded as having "a smile of a peasant" and called his sister "Fat-Ham". You can read a full rundown of the German onslaught by clicking here. [Toni Kelly]

Cheryl Tweedie and Victoria Beckham Cellulite Shocker

Now come on. Nobody seriously thinks there's an ounce of cellulite on Posh or Cheryl. But if there is, they'll have the chance to shift it during next month's World Cup in Germany. The hotel where the England footballer wives will be staying has apparently spent £100,000 revamping its gym with the latest fat-fighting kit, including a machine that claims to beat cellulite using the Power Of Electricity alone. If I was a proper tabloid journo, I'd be kick-starting a 'Are they calling Our Boys' Birds a load of old chubbers?' campaign immediately... [Stuart Dredge]

Victoria Beckham's Tribute Tattoo

Victoriabeckham_2A source has told the Sunday Mirror rag that Victoria Beckham is getting a new tattoo to commemorate the first time her and David slept together. She apparently chose the design after David whisked her away to Paris for a weekend to celebrate their anniversary, the 8th May. 'Victoria hadn't remembered the exact dates - but she was bowled over when David told her during dinner. She knew then that she had to commemorate the occasion with something permanent', the source blabbed, adding that she was due to get '8th May' inscripted on her wrist in Roman numerals. I rather think a picture of a football boot popping a cherry with a high heel stiletto would be a much better tribute myself. [Katherine Hannaford]

Footballers Wives Packing Their (Small) Bags

Oh, what's a footballer's wife to do? According to this story, the England squad's wives and girlfriends have been told by the FA that they have to travel light, or pay for their luggage themselves. So unless they stump up, it's one suitcase and one piece of hand luggage only on the plane to Germany - just like the rest of us plebs in other words. Although you have to feel for Posh and chums, who will presumably be spending the rest of this month jumping up and down on their suitcases to try and squeeze in a month's worth of designer gear.
