Born. 2nd December 1981, Kentwood, Louisiana, USA. One of the last teenage superstars of the millennium, Spears enjoyed her breakthrough success at the end of 1998. She appeared in local dance revues and church choirs as a young girl, and at the age of eight auditioned for The Mickey Mouse Club. Although she was too young to join the series, a producer on the show gave her an introduction to a New York agent. She subsequently spent three summers at the Professional Performing Arts School Center. She appeared in a number of off-Broadway productions as a child actor, including Ruthless (1991). She returned to the [ Walt ] Disney Channel for a spot on The Mickey Mouse Club, where she was featured for two years between the ages of 11 and 13. She began to audition for pop bands in the New York area, her demo tapes eventually landing on the desk of Jive Records' Jeff Fenster. ''Her vocal ability and commercial appeal caught me right away,'' he recalls. She was expensively groomed by Jive, who put her in the studio with Eric Foster White (producer and writer for Boyzone, Whitney Houston and others). They employed top R&B writer Max Martin (of Backstreet Boys fame) to produce her debut single, ''... Baby, One More Time'', and an album of the same title. They also set up a promotional free phone number where fans could listen to Spears' music and interviews throughout the summer of 1998. She toured American venues for a series of concerts sponsored by US teen magazines, eventually joining 'N Sync on tour. The careful planning paid off when her debut album and single went on to top the American charts at the start of 1999. The album and single enjoyed similar success in the UK and Europe. The ballad ''Sometimes'' and the funky ''(You Drive Me) Crazy'' were also substantial transatlantic hits. ''Born To Make You Happy'' topped the UK charts in January 2000. The demand for new Spears material was satisfied when her sophomore set, Oops! ... I Did It Again, was released in May. The album contained the expected quota of well-produced, expertly crafted pop songs alongside a risible cover version of (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction.

Jessica Biel Biography
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jessica Claire Biel (born March 3, 1982) is an American actress and former fashion model best known for appearing in several Hollywood films such as Summer Catch, the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Illusionist, as well as for her early television role of Mary Camden in the long-running family-drama series 7th Heaven.Biography

Early life

Biel was born in Ely, Minnesota to Jonathan Edward Biel, an entrepreneur, and Kimberly Conroe. Biel, who has a younger brother, Justin, grew up in Boulder, Colorado, where her family had moved when she was very young. She initially trained to become a vocalist with the hope of performing in musical theater and appeared in several musicals at an early age including The Sound of Music, Annie, Beauty and the Beast and Anything Goes

Early career

t wasn't until Biel attended the International Modeling and Talent Association Convention in Los Angeles in 1994 when her career started to take off as a fashion model.

Rise to fame (1996 - 2002)

Biel's first big break came when at 14 years old she landed the role of Mary Camden on the WB TV Series 7th Heaven. The family drama from Aaron Spelling and Brenda Hampton became the most popular (and remains the longest running) series on the fledgling network. Jessica's film career also began at age 15 when she played alongside Peter Fonda in his Golden Globe winning performance in Ulee's Gold (1997). Aside from acting, Jessica became a spokesmodel for L'Oreal cosmetics in 2002.

In 2000, Biel posed topless in a layout of Gear magazine. It was controversial because she was only 17 at the time of the shoot. Her frustration and fear about being typecast was one of the reasons that led to her decision. She blamed her saintly image on 7th Heaven for limiting her film career, including losing a lead role in American Beauty, which eventually went to Thora Birch. Jessica also hoped that by posing she would get out of her 7th Heaven contract, which she accomplished. She later said she regretted posing for the magazine and regards it as a learning experience. Jessica returned to 7th Heaven full time for the 2001—2002 season and then focused her attention on her movie career and has made minimal TV appearances since then. In 2002, she also had a role in the film The Rules of Attraction based on a novel by Bret Easton Ellis.

Film stardom (2003-2005)

After her departure from 7th Heaven, she accepted the role of Erin Hardesty in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003). The movie was met with moderate critical attention, but was successful commercially making over 80 million dollars stateside with its 9 million dollar budget. She has also had starring roles in Blade: Trinity (2004) and Stealth (2005), the latter of which was a box-office flop, losing a significant amount of money. Biel was also rumored to be up for the part of Elizabeth in The Fog (a part originated by scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis). Later reports stated Biel did not want to do any more horror films. The part eventually went to Maggie Grace of Lost. Turning down the role proved to be a wise move: the remake was a box office flop, which had been predicted by various critics, as the film was not screened for the press prior to its release. After a nearly three year absence, Jessica surprised her fans by making one final appearance in the series finale of 7th Heaven in May 2006. The series was later renewed, at last minute, for an 11th season. Biel has not made any future appearances as of mid 2007.

Breakthrough (2006 - present)

After several indifferent feature films, her film career finally blossomed when she played a turn-of-the-century duchess in The Illusionist (2006), which received good reviews and generated a profit at the box office. In 2006, she also starred Home of the Brave, about soldiers returning from Iraq, premiered in Los Angeles on December 5, 2006. She next starred opposite Adam Sandler in the comedy I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, which went to number one at the box office, making over 34 million dollars in its opening weekend, and is slated to appear in two more films in 2008. A Woman of No Importance, about a woman's past comes back to haunt her when the man who left her with a child becomes the potential employer of their illegitimate son. Based on the play by Oscar Wilde. Taking over Lindsay Lohan's part, which is set to begin filming in the fall of 2007. She'll also appear in Powder Blue opposite Forest Whitaker, about four desperate individuals who intersect in Los Angeles on Christmas Eve.

Personal life

Biel attended the exclusive private Lycée Français de Los Angeles for high school. In fall 2000, she enrolled in an undergraduate study at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. Having attended there during fall 2000, spring 2001 and fall 2002 semesters, she left before completing a degree program to concentrate on her acting career.

Biel's hobbies include ballet, soccer, running, yoga and hiking. Biel currently resides in Los Angeles. She dated actor Chris Evans from 2001 to 2006, with at least one time "off" during that period. Together, they appeared in the films London and Cellular. She also dated another fellow actor, Adam LaVorgna, who portrayed the character of Robbie in 7th Heaven, for about two years. Jessica had been linked to New York Yankees star shortstop Derek Jeter.

In January 2007, Biel was linked to singer Justin Timberlake when pictures surfaced of the two snowboarding in Park City, Utah during the Sundance Film Festival. On May 12, 2007, the gossip was refueled with the release of romantic pictures of Timberlake and Biel on multiple dates, specifically caught kissing while dining in the UK accompanied by producer/mogul Timbaland and the Manchester United (at the time) footballer Alan Smith. Timberlake has said he is drawn to independent women.

Charity work

On July 18, 2006, Biel auctioned herself for a charity event to help raise money for medical expenses for Colorado teen Molly Bloom, who lost her leg and part of her pelvis in an auto accident. The winning bid for the lunch date with Biel was $30,000. Biel quipped, "I promise, I'm a cheap date." The charity event raised $38,000 total. The lunch date was set for August 18, 2006.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Girls Aloud are a Smash Hits Poll Winners, TMF award-winning and BRIT Award-nominated British girl group created on ITV1 talent show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002. The group, consisting of Cheryl Cole (née Tweedy), Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh, has gone on to become one of the most successful pop groups of the decade with a record breaking fifteen consecutive Top 10 singles (including three number ones), four platinum albums (including a number one) and record sales in excess of 4.2 million in the UK alone. They have also scored successes around Europe with Number One singles in Greece and Ireland, as well as making an impact in countries further afield, such as Mexico and Australia.

Their British production team Xenomania are well-known for embracing various influences, from Electronica, House, Power Pop and Rock among others. Indeed, the music of Girls Aloud ranges from the distinctly 1980's sound of "The Show" to "Love Machine" and much of the Chemistry album, which looks back to the 1960's. Girls Aloud's songs frequently eschew traditional verse-chorus strong structure - a technique which can be heard most clearly in "Biology" or "Sexy! No No No..." - and often exploit polyphonic (or even contrapuntal) textures, giving their music a complex, multi-layered sound.

Girls Aloud hold the record for the shortest time between forming and reaching number one in the UK Charts (with their platinum-selling debut single "Sound of the Underground", and have since become one of the few reality television groups to have had continued success with Guinness World Records listing them as the Most Successful Reality TV Group in the 2007 edition. Their record of fifteen consecutive top ten singles is also unmatched by any other girl group beating the Spice Girls' previous record of ten, but not their string of number one's.

For a contemporary pop group manufactured on reality television they have received unprecedented praise from broadsheet newspapers and the rock music press, with publications including the Observer Music Monthly, and the NME giving their music rave reviews, with The Observer calling "Biology" the "single of the decade".


Girls Aloud were formed on November 30, 2002 in front of millions of viewers on the ITV1 programme Popstars: The Rivals. The concept of the programme was to produce a boyband and a girlband who would be 'rivals' and compete for the Christmas number one single in 2002. Following the initial success of Hear'Say (winners of the original Popstars show), several thousand applicants attended auditions across the UK in hope of being selected for the show. Ten men and ten women were chosen as finalists by judges Pete Waterman, Louis Walsh and Geri Halliwell with Big Brother presenter Davina McCall taking the contestants through the auditions and the shows each week. However, two finalists were disqualified before the live shows began: Hazel Kaneswaren was found to be too old to participate whilst Nicola Ward refused to sign the contract, claiming the pay the band would go on to receive was too poor. Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts were chosen as their replacements, who had made it into the final fifteen, but were not originally chosen for the final ten.

During October and November, the finalists took to the stage participating in week-by-week live performances every Saturday night (alternating between the girls and boys each week). One contestant was eliminated each week (due to polling the least amount of phone votes) until the final line-ups of the boy band and girl band emerged. The five girls who polled enough votes to make it into the band were (in order) Cheryl Tweedy, Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle, Kimberley Walsh, and Sarah Harding, with Javine Hylton missing out on a place in the band, despite previous expectations that she would be placed in the line-up. They called themselves Girls Aloud and were managed by Louis Walsh until 2005 when Hilary Shaw replaced him. The runners up, a boy band called One True Voice were managed by Pete Waterman.

The two bands competed for the number one position in the Christmas Week UK singles chart. Girls Aloud won the battle with their single "Sound of the Underground" (produced by Brian Higgins and Xenomania) which stayed at number one for four weeks. Disney Channel viewers later voted this as best single of 2002–2003 at the Disney Channel Kids Awards. Originally tipped to be more successful than the girls, One True Voice released just two singles before disbanding in Summer 2003.

Subsequent career

2002–2004: Sound of the Underground

After the huge success of "Sound of the Underground" the newly formed group took several months to record their debut album.

They followed their début single with the number two hit "No Good Advice" in May 2003. The song received critical acclaim and the video, whilst known to have been the girls' least favourite video due to problems in production, was deemed one of the sexiest videos of the year.

The debut album, Sound of the Underground, was released on 26 May 2003. It went straight in at number two, behind Justin Timberlake's album Justified. One of the tracks, "Girls Allowed", was written for the girls by ex-Westlife star Bryan McFadden while "Some Kind of Miracle" was co-written by former B*Witched star Edele Lynch.

2004–2005: What Will the Neighbours Say?

After a brief break, the girls returned to promote brand new single "The Show", in June 2004, the first release from their second album. It had an unusual structure for a pop song, consisting of a number of interchanged sections rather than the more typical verse-chorus form. This single showed off a new look for the girls and was backed with a promotional campaign prior to its première featuring five empty chairs with each of the girls' names on. This built up excitement over the new look and later featured on the single cover with the girls in their seats. When released, it entered the singles chart at number two.

2005–2006: Chemistry

After a short break following their first tour, the girls began work on their third album. The first single to be released from "Chemistry" was "Long Hot Summer" in August 2005 and charted at number seven, ending their consecutive top five run but continuing their unbroken run of top ten singles. The single that launched their third album was "Biology". It entered the UK charts at number four in November 2005 and equalled the Spice Girls record of ten consecutive top ten singles in the UK.

Their third studio album Chemistry was released on December 5, 2005. It features "Models", a song first heard being recorded on their ITV2 documentary Girls Aloud: Home Truths and also used as the theme music to their E4 documentary Girls Aloud: Off the Record. It also boasts writing credits from JC Chasez of 'N Sync fame, who penned the track Watch Me Go. The album peaked on the charts at number eleven, their lowest ever, despite overwhelming critical acclaim; it eventually went platinum and has currently sold over 350,000 copies in total.

2006–2007: The Sound of Girls Aloud

n September 2006, the official Girls Aloud web site confirmed the release of The Sound of Girls Aloud — a compilation that contains Girls Aloud's singles and some new and unreleased material. The album was released on October 30, 2006 and on November 5, 2006 débuted at number one on the UK album chart. After a mere eight weeks it became the group's biggest selling album to date. The album was also released on a limited edition double CD format containing live tracks and previously unavailable tracks such as "Singapore" and "Hanging On The Telephone, a cover of the Blondie single; this has now become a highly priced collectors item. As of August 2007 the album has gone 2x Platinum and has sold almost three quarters of a million copies.

2007–Present: Fourth studio album

On July 13, 2007 Girls Aloud's official website announced that the new single is to be called "Sexy! No, No, No..." and is to be released on September 3. The track was played exclusively on The Chris Moyles Show on the 19th of July at 8:10am. It has been described by Popjustice as Girls Aloud's "noisiest single yet". It was performed for the first time at T4 On The Beach in Weston-Super-Mare on Sunday 22nd July.

According to, Girls Aloud's fourth studio album is to be released on November 19. Sarah has said "Its been such a busy summer recording new material, we can't wait to play it to everyone. We can't reveal anything just yet except that it's a really great new edgy sound and we hope you love it as much as we do". Sarah also said "We're still in the process of making the first few singles, and now we're just writing and recording," with Nadine adding that they had not decided on a title yet.

When Kimberley was asked what the name of the latest album would be, she replied: "We haven't actually decided. We will choose a name after we have released the second single and can clearly see which direction the album is going in."


The Popjustice £20 Music Prize is awarded every year by a panel of judges (or sometimes a public vote) to the best British pop single of the previous twelve months. The competition has been running since 2003. Girls Aloud have been nominated every year, and have won it three times. The girls are currently nominated for the 2007 Popjustice Music Prize for their hit single "Something Kinda Ooooh".

* 2003 "No Good Advice" - won
* 2004 "The Show" - short-listed
* 2005 "Wake Me Up" - won
* 2006 "Biology" - won
* 2007 "Something Kinda Ooooh" - nominated

Brad Pitt Insecure, Angelina Jolie Tones Down Sex Life

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Kiss & Make Up/Out Like TeenagersAngelina Jolie has been long rumored to slept with ladies and engage in some friendly knife play. But according to the Sun, Brad Pitt put an end to all of that.

“The 32-year-old actress has admitted bedding women in the past - and using knives during sex. She said: ‘I've never hidden my bisexuality. But since I've been with Brad, there's no longer a place for that or S&M in my life.’

She goes on to say that Brad completely trusts and doesn't think she will cheat. ‘He lets me talk to whomever I want. He has complete blind faith in me.’”

I would like to think that Jolie just calmed down because she has several kids now. But I am curious to know why Pitt doesn’t want her with any women.

Victoria Beckham Biography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Victoria Beckham (née Adams), (born April 17, 1974 in Goff's Oak, Hertfordshire, England) is an English singer, songwriter, fashion designer and television personality. Beckham is part of the pop group Spice Girls, and was dubbed 'Posh Spice' as part of the pop group. Since the Spice Girls followed separate careers, Beckham has released four UK Top 10 singles.

She is also known for being married to British football player David Beckham. Her career and marriage to David Beckham have made her both the fifty-second richest woman in Britain and the six hundred and nineteenth richest person in Britain with husband David, with an estimated joint wealth of £112 million.

Music career

Spice Girls

Main article: Spice Girls

Victoria Beckham (then Adams) joined the all-girl band Spice Girls, first called "Touch," in 1994, together with Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm. The group's first single, "Wannabe," went to number one in the UK and the U.S., and would be followed by eight other hugely successful number one singles from their albums Spice and Spiceworld. Each member of the group received a nickname from the media: Victoria became "Posh Spice,". The group would become one of the most successful acts of the 1990s, selling in excess of fifty-five million records worldwide. After the release of their third album, Forever, which was much less successful than their previous two albums, the Spice Girls stopped recording, and Victoria would eventually take steps toward a solo career.

In 2007, the Spice Girls confirmed that they have reformed and are due to go on tour. Just a year earlier on February 26, 2006, Victoria Beckham stated in an interview with the Sunday Mirror: "I'm never going to sing again, unless it was a chance to do something with the Spice Girls. I don't really miss the shows we did together. I miss the girls more. I see Geri a lot — I love her, she's amazing. I speak to the others from time to time. I love them too and miss them." Beckham also declared that she and her former Spice colleagues were enjoying their solo careers in various fields. She said: "We're all still doing our own thing."

Virgin Records

In August 2000, Victoria released her first solo single: "Out Of Your Mind", a collaboration with the Garage act the Truesteppers and Dane Bowers. The week of release coincided with the release of "Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)" by Spiller ft. Sophie Ellis-Bextor, resulting in a chart battle dubbed 'Posh vs. Posher' by the tabloids. Following a huge publicity campaign, "Out Of Your Mind" was outsold by 20,000 copies and debuted at number two with first week sales of 180,584 copies.

Beckham signed a recording contract with her group label Virgin Records. Her true debut single as a solo artist, "Not Such An Innocent Girl", was released in September 2001. Again, she faced competition in another hugely hyped chart battle, this time with Kylie Minogue's single "Can't Get You Out Of My Head". Beckham was unlikely to beat Kylie, but she gave the project huge promotion, and the record had an expensive and futuristic video. In the week of release, the tabloid newspaper The Sun ran a daily progress chart covering the chart battle, but they gave up half way through the week when it was clear the battle was a one horse race. A potential factor attributable to Beckham's weaker sales could be the due to the media furor she created after wearing a fake lip ring during a live performance in Birmingham, an event that also saw her getting booed and pelted with fruit by a hostile public. She was widely criticised by many groups, including the British Dental Association, for setting a bad example that her younger fans may wish to emulate. "Not Such An Innocent Girl" did, nevertheless, sell respectably in the UK and was a #1 hit in the Philippines.

Beckham's eponymously titled debut album reached number 10 in the UK album chart. The album featured the much talked about "Every Part Of Me", a song co-written by Beckham and dedicated to her son, Brooklyn, who features at the start, Brooklyn's 'part' allegedly being an off-chance recording which took place during a recording session break.

The second and final single to be released from the album was "A Mind of Its Own" The single reached number 6 in the UK and sold 56,500 copies. Some speculate that due to its not hitting the Top 3, rumours started spreading that Beckham was soon to be dropped by her label. These were refuted at the time.

A third single, "I Wish", was promoted but never materialised. The single version was a remix featuring Robbie Craig, and was performed on TV on Friday Night's All Wright. Many hoped this single would revitalise the album's fortunes, but following the announcement of Beckham's second pregnancy it was shelved, and Beckham was dropped from the label Virgin Records.

The Telstar / 19 Management era

Telstar Records signed Victoria in 2002 in a deal made with Simon Fuller's 19 Management. She spent much of 2002 recording a 'pop-influenced' album, but Beckham allegedly shelved it after not being happy with the results. Instead of pop, Beckham wanted to record tracks with a more RnB and hip hop influence, and to accomplish this she began working with urban producer Damon Dash. There were some unsubstantiated rumours regarding both Dash and Beckham at the time. These plans reportedly worried Telstar and Simon Fuller, but they compromised with Beckham, allowing her to release a Dash produced track ("This Groove") along-side one of her earlier pop tracks ("Let Your Head Go") from the shelved album.

The resulting double A-side single "Let Your Head Go / This Groove" was released in the UK in late-December 2003, following heavy promotion and many TV appearances across the Christmas period. The single charted well at #3. This double A-side remains Victoria's last single release to date.

As another compromise, Telstar allowed Beckham to release some of her urban tracks on "The Real Beckhams" DVD. This 2003 documentary was released in January 2004, and bonus material included the videos for "Let Your Head Go" and "This Groove", as well as four previously unreleased tracks: "Resentment", "That Dude", "Me And You This Time" and "Valentine" (none of the songs had a writing credit from Beckham). "Resentment" has since been covered by Beyoncé Knowles and released on her solo album B'Day (2006).

Outside of the UK, Damon Dash had plans for Beckham in the United States, including a potential release of "Let Your Head Go / This Groove" under the name of "Posh Spice Victoria Beckham". The release was proposed for sometime between March to May 2004, but never occurred. A Dash produced track "It's That Simple" featuring M.O.P. was promoed to vinyl, and received a premiere on BBC urban music radio station 1Xtra. This only generated further criticism, with the feeling being that Beckham was a far from convincing urban act. Around this time, a 90-second snippet of a track called "Come Together" was released to the media, which was notable for sampling the Beatles' song of the same name.

With the UK media describing her music career a failure, and combined with a rumored fall out between Dash and Fuller, remaining plans for Victoria's music career were canceled. To try and salvage her music career, Beckham again began work on pop-styled tracks in 2004. It is known that she recorded a track she had written with Cathy Dennis entitled "My Love Is For Real" (not to be confused with the Paula Abdul song of the same name). With the collapse of Telstar Records, the pressure to stay with her family caused by the Rebecca Loos scandal, and the announcement of Beckham's third pregnancy, this song has never been heard, except for a remix by Armand van Helden.

Fashion career

In 2000, Victoria Beckham made a guest appearance on the catwalk for Maria Grachvogel. Beckham has also appeared on the runway for her close friend Roberto Cavalli and was for a period exclusively dressed by him for red-carpet and social events.

In 2004, Beckham designed a fashion line for Rock and Republic called 'VB Rocks,' consisting mainly of jeans for the high end of the market (retailing at approximately $300 in the U.S.). She has also worked on a range of women's clothes including shirts and skirts. The clothing features a logo of a crown with the letters "VB". In September 2006, Beckham ceased working with Rock and Republic in order to launch her own Denim label. The new line of Beckham's jeans collection is called DVB Style.

Beckham was briefly the face of Rocawear, and has for or a number of years produced a range of handbags and jewellery in association with the Japanese store Samantha Thavasa. In July 2006, Victoria Beckham released a line of sunglasses (which she had been seen wearing at the World Cup games). In September 2006, 'Intimately Beckham', a his-and-her fragrance line in association with Coty the world's largest fragrance house was launched. Around the same time Beckham launched her new official website which follows her fashion work.

In June 2007 Beckham was a judge at London's annual Graduate Fashion Week alongside Zandra Rhodes.

On June 5, 2007, she won two British Glamour Magazine Awards: one for "Woman of the Year" and another for "Entrepreneur of the Year," which celebrated her fashion achievements.

On June 14, 2007 Beckham launched her dVb denim collection in NYC at the high-end Saks Fifth Avenue, along with unveiling her eyewear range in the US for the first time.


Her autobiography, entitled Learning to Fly, was the 3rd best selling non-fiction title of 2001 and the total UK sales stand at more than 500,000 copies. The title was taken from a line in a song from the musical Fame, which Victoria adored as a child.

Beckham is widely believed to have told a Spanish journalist in 2005 that "I've never read a book in my life". Although often used to criticise and ridicule Victoria, this 'quote' was actually a mistranslation from the original Spanish in which the interview was printed - she actually stated she never had time to finish reading a book because she was always running around after her children.

Her second book, a fashion book titled That Extra Half an Inch: Hair, Heels and Everything In Between, was published on October 30, 2006. It was co-written by Hadley Freeman, deputy fashion editor of The Guardian and a contributing editor of Vogue and includes photography by Mario Testino, Annie Leibovitz and Steven Meisel. On the Sunday Times Book Charts, the book stood at #2.


Over the course of her career, Beckham has shot five official reality documentaries.

The first of which, entitled Being Victoria Beckham, focused on Beckham discussing her career as a solo artist, with the release of her first album, also showing her at various photo shoots and recording sessions. The second, The Real Beckhams, focussed on the Beckhams' move to Madrid from London after David was signed to Real Madrid. It also featured Beckham re-launching her solo career and showed her mocking the tabloid stories she reads in the paper every day. This particular special was released on DVD.

The third was called Full Length & Fabulous: The Beckhams' World Cup Party, which followed Victoria and David Beckham organising and making preparations to host a World Cup Party at a marquee in the grounds of their mansion in Hertfordshire, which aimed to raise money for their charity. The documentary also filmed the event itself, where the menu was designed especially by friend and chef Gordon Ramsay and the charity auction was hosted by Graham Norton. The fourth being titled Victoria's Secrets is rare and much sought after by fans, little detail is known about it aside from it being aired only in the U.K.

To document Victoria Beckham's preparations for her family's move to America, she signed a deal with NBC for six episodes of a half-hour unscripted reality tv series. The show is called Victoria Beckham: Coming to America and aired on Monday July 16, 2007 in America and Canada. The show was savaged by the American media and critics, where amongst other reviews, The New York Post described the show as "an orgy of self-indulgence" and also described Beckham as "vapid and condescending". It became the third most watched programme in its time-slot and received viewing figures of 4.9 million in America, beaten by a repeat of Wife Swap and two sitcoms. Despite the originally planned six episodes, the show was cut to a one hour special only. The programme aired in Britain on July 17, 2007 on ITV with 3.5 million viewers tuning in. The programme was produced by Simon Fuller who will be managing her and the Spice Girls on their come back tour, which will begin as early as November of 2007. Despite a TV show in the works, Victoria has denied plans to embark upon an LA movie career.

In July 2007, it was announced that Beckham was shortly to begin filming a cameo appearance playing herself in an episode of the second season of ABC's hit series Ugly Betty.

Personal life

Beckham's parents are Anthony William and Jacqueline Adams. She has a younger sister, Louise, and a younger brother, Christian. She attended Jason Theatre School in Hoddesdon. At 17, she started going to the Laine Arts Theatre College in Epsom, Surrey. Beckham later enjoyed huge success as 'Posh Spice' in the girl band, The Spice Girls. Victoria started dating footballer David Beckham in 1997, and the couple were dubbed "Posh and Becks" by the media. Beckham proposed to Victoria on 24 January 1998 in a restaurant in Cheshunt, England, and their first son, Brooklyn Joseph, was born on 4 March 1999. The two were married at Luttrellstown Castle, Ireland on 4 July 1999, and the wedding attracted tremendous media coverage. Beckham's teammate Gary Neville was the best man, and the couple's son Brooklyn, then four months old, was the ring bearer. The media were kept away from the ceremony, as the Beckhams had an exclusive deal with OK! Magazine, but newspapers were still able to obtain photographs showing them sitting on golden thrones. 437 staff were employed for the wedding reception, which was estimated to have cost £500,000. The Beckhams' second son, Romeo James, was born on 1 September 2002; a third son, Cruz David, followed on February 20, 2005 in Madrid, Spain. The Beckhams are also known for their close friendship with Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.

After many preparations, Victoria and David Beckham moved to Los Angeles where David has been signed to play for the LA Galaxy soccer team. On arrival in America on July 13, 2007, the couple were met by hundreds of paparazzi and media representatives, causing a media frenzy. They are now residing in a $22 million Beverly Hills mansion with 10 security guards. To create publicity for their move to America, the couple were photographed in their underwear for the fashion magazine, W. In an interview for the magazine, Victoria Beckham said that David's alleged affair with Rebecca Loos made their relationship stronger.
