Poor Posh

Our own dear Vicky Becks seems to have been given a hard time by American TV critics. She is, after all, just another thin blonde in expensive frocks at a time when there's a global surplus of such creatures - the strip mines in Essex and Southern California have been over-producing for some time now. Vicky has been trying to offset the career damaged effects of this glut by claiming that, unlike most thin blondes in California, she is English and has irony. I'm not convinced this is the right approach. The Times, meanwhile, joins in the fun by giving us pictures of Vicky's eight worst LA outfits. Poor Posh. She should be given a break. Unless, of course, she has become a scientologist


  1. Just when you think we've sunk as low as we can go we go lower. The media frenzy, from papers and TV stations that should know better, is proof, if it were needed, that if 24 hour rolling news is the answer someone is asking the wrong question.

  2. When Raymond Chandler talked of "A blonde to make a bishop kick a hole in a stained-glass window" I'm not sure he had Posh Spice in mind. You can be blonde or you can be thin, but real blondes are never "thin". There answer here could be spaghetti rather than scientology. Posh Spice should go on an extended eating tour of Italy.

  3. Poor Posh!?! Poor Posh?! The woman deserves everything she gets. She should be put out of our misery... the constant coverage of this bubblehead is migraine inducing and depressing in the extreme. The fact that her conviction that we are interested in her every move is being endorsed in this way makes me want to move somewhere without any media coverage whatsoever (if indeed such a haven exists). Raymond Chandler certainly never had this preying mantis in mind. , and nor, surely, would any redblooded male with two brain cells to rub together.
