Beckham Deal Still In The Works

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

images27Despite an ultimatum from the LA Galaxy that a deal be complete before last Friday or the negotiations over David Beckham would end, AC Milan isn’t conceding defeat just yet. 

Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti insisted, “We have still got 20 days to close the deal. At the moment Beckham is indispensable for Milan. Galaxy has forced the situation, but there is time before March 9.”

Meanwhile, Beckham is reminiscing about his time with the Galaxy, “I’ve always said I don’t regret things and I don’t regret the two seasons at LA. They might have been disappointing in that we haven’t won anything or even made the play-offs — but I’ve met some really good people and there are really good people at the club.”

At this point it seems inevitable that Beckham will become a permanent fixture in Milan. All that’s left to consider is the family.

“It’s going to be tough for the family because when you have children, the main decision is where the kids are going to be happiest and, to be honest, the kids are so settled in America and so settled in their school.

“Me and Victoria will always put our children before anything. That’s the decision that, if something does happen, we will have to look at. Obviously, if we didn’t have the children, we would move straight away but we have enjoyed living in LA and love living there — and the kids are happy there.”

So, Posh and Becks fans, we can still hold on to the hope that the Family Beckham will at least reside in Cali in the off-season. Little consolation, I know, but we’ll take what we can get.

Please Just Shut Up and Look Cute

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

 

tony-parker-eva-longoriaTrue to form  Eva Longoria-Parker was all over her hubby, Tony Parker, last weekend at the NBA All-Star festivities. And, like I noted in my Valentine’s Day Hot Couples’ List, I like them and they are cute together but she really needs to stop talking about thier love life.
Eva gushed about spending the off-season in France, where Parker just bought a basketball team. “I love France and French men,” said Longoria smiling at Parker. “I mean I love this French guy.”
Eva, by now we all know you love your hubby and we’re truly happy for you , but France has enough cheese without you spreading it thick in every interview you do.

A Note To Editors of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition

Bill and Julie Romanowski, 2000

Bill and Julie Romanowski, 2000

Browsing through past publications of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Editions I found an interesting trend… 

 

There are a lot of (alleged) steroid users and their girlfriends/wives that have been featured by the magazine. Ironically, the same magazine that is selling like hotcakes now for breaking the big A-Rod steroid story.

So, who at this point you may be asking yourself what athlete could they feature with 100% certainty that he had never used steroids?????????

Manute Bol, but only if he agrees to wear a speedo.

Not to be outdone, Zach Gilford who plays the irresistibly sweet Matt Saracen, proves that football players do like cheerleaders. Or, at least guys who pretend to be football players on t.v. like former Seattle Seahawk’s cheerleaders. Zach’s lady is Amber Lancaster.

Thorpedo Shot Down By Beard

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

ian_thorpe2856ccldfszIt’s been a tough week for Aussie swimming superstar, Ian Thorpe. Rumors have swirled around him for a while now that he is in a relationship with his roomie and fellow swimmer, Brazilian Daniel Mendes. Paparazzi have been trotting the globe after these two, snapping pics of them together in Australia and in Brazil where the two have been visiting Mendes’ family.

This has prompted Thorpe to issue statements in which he insists that he isn’t gay and he sites an interview he did in 2007 in which he mentioned a long-term intercontinental relationship with sexy American gold medal swimmer, Amanda Beard.

Normally, I wouldn’t pay any mind to rumors that he is gay. It’s none of my business and frankly, I could care less one way or the other. But here is where it gets interesting and why I felt it’s was juicy enough for a post.

Beard now denies that she and Thorpe were in a relationship. She’s claiming the old “just friends” defense.

Ouch.

Gay, straight, dude or chick, that’s gotta hurt.  Whoever you believe in this melodrama she has made him look like a fool. She just told the entire world that either  a) he’s  a liar, or  b) that she just wasn’t that into him and he obviously thought their “relationship” meant more than she did.

Either way Ian, you have my sympathy.

A-Fraud And The Old Broad

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

450px-arodpractice449px-madonna_3_by_david_shankbone-2A la Joe Torre’s new book, I will forever refer to Alex Rodriguez as A-Fraud. With that in mind, reports are swirling that he and Madonna were back in business over the weekend. Something about this pairing just makes me feel dirty and in need of a shower.

Milan To Bid For Beckham

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

250px-david_beckham_nov_11_2007On a 2 month loan from the L.A. Galaxy to AC Milan, David Beckham scored his first goal for the team on Sunday in his 3rd match in a Milan uniform.

This is good news for Beckham who hopes to impress England coach Fabio Capello, who will attend Milan’s match on Wednesday to assess Beckham. Bad news, however, for the L.A. Galaxy who, no doubt, would love to have Becks back in LaLa Land when the loan agreement with Milan expires on March 9.

I’m inclined to think that Beckham will stay put and Milan will buy out the Galaxy for his rights. They have made it clear that they want him.

“If he decides to free himself and wants to (stay), we will welcome him with open arms, but he belongs to another club and we’ve got to thank them because they were very kind with us,” Milan vice president Adriano Galliani said, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport Web site.

Beckham, whose goal is to make England’s team for the 2010 World Cup, will play against better competition and get more exposure playing in Europe. In the MLS it seemed he was more of a side-show act paid big bucks to draw a crowd.

If he’s not ready to hang up his boots just yet then AC Milan is definitely a better place to prepare for one last run at the Cup. Though David’s lady love, Victoria, may beg to differ. According to a post on perezhilton.com, Posh is none to pleased with the prospect of packing up the kids and moving to Milan. She prefers to raise the couple’s boys in a locale where there won’t be a language barrier, such as London or L.A.

Rourke In Ring For Real

Monday, January 26th, 2009

180px-mickeyrourke08tiffUnless you’ve been living in complete seclusion from the mainstream world you’re probably aware that Mickey Rourke’s performance in “The Wrestler” has earned him praise, awards, and is being hailed as a miraculous comeback.

Rourke was considered by many to be a rising star in his early years of acting but gave up life as a thespian to become a professional boxer. Well, that didn’t last too long (8 fights) and didn’t work out so well (just look at his face for proof) and eventually he decided to switch back to acting.

Surprise! Hollywood had moved on and the juicy roles he was swatting away like flies before his stint as a boxer were non-existant and even small rolls in crappy movies were hard to come by. Rourke has had no problem telling tales of woe about “those years when nobody in Hollywood would give me the time of day”. 

Now, just as Hollywood seems ready to welcome Rourke back in with open arms (and awards) he goes and makes another bonehead career decision. He’s planning to get into the ring during WWE’s Wrestlemania and hinted that he may take on Chris Jericho.

Mickey, Mickey, Mickey. I really hope this is just a publicity stunt and that you’ll just be introducing the real wrestlers. If you want Hollywood to take you seriously maybe you should begin by taking yourself seriously. Stop whining and act (because you are a good actor, after all) like someone who wants another job sometime in the next 10-15 years. You were lucky enough for lightening to strike you twice, I don’t think it would strike a third time if you manage to screw up your career again.

Paris Parties With Giant’s Pitcher

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

gettyimageproxyashx4Paris Hilton was spotted recently at a trendy LA nightclub getting hot and heavy with San Francisco Giants pitcher, Barry Zito. But the hotel heiress shouldn’t begin embroidering the towels just yet. Zito, who inked a deal worth $126 million over 7 years was photographed days later with four scantly-clad ladies (two of whom were making out in the backseat) with him in his car. It’s a shame, I really thought this one might last!
