We sort of yawned our way into the weekend last week when news broke that British bookies had suspended betting because David and Victoria Beckham were this close to announcing their split. Well, apparently the two of them emerged from their respective wings at the Beckham estate to have a real laugh and to ring up Vogue to make sure their big happy family spread is still a go next month.
The Daily Mail says Posh was a little surprised rumors went into overdrive that she and David were heading to Splitsville the same day she tossed up a photo of her and daughter Harper on Instagram saying how much they missed him. Someone passed a rumor on social media that David knocked up Harper’s teacher, and anyone who lived through the early 00s of the Posh and Becks melodrama was like, “Eh, I’ve heard crazier shit.” Victoria apparently just thought it was funny and is said to have called David, who was traveling in the U.S. at the time, to ask, “Are you divorcing me?” Some snitch close to Posh said she knew the former Spice Girl thought it was funny because her perennial scowl budged by almost an entire centimeter! Nah, she actually put it this way:
“Victoria was taken aback, but she found the whole thing very funny. They have had a sense of humour about this because it’s so ridiculous. They are stunned that so many people have believed it, and also stunned that it so quickly got around. They spoke about it and laughed a lot. They have absolutely no idea where or how it started. It’s quite the mystery.”
Just to show how REAL the Beckham love is, the entire family is scheduled to be in a Vogue spread next month to coincide with the tenth anniversary of Victoria’s fashion line that apparently has had to get some financial help from David. Considering how they were all cozy with the British Vogue editor over the weekend, I’d assume this spread will be in the British version of the magazine and not the U.S.:
One Conde Nast source told the Daily Mail they expect the magazine to be one of the best-selling issues in magazine history. Presumably, I’d imagine sales to drive largely from an interest in whether sitting next to her own children vs., say, Emma Bunton will get Victoria to bare them pearly whites, but the joke’s on you, general public! The only thing that will get Posh B to do that is if Louis Vuitton swoops in and buys her company! Or, you know, if we stop writing stories about her getting back together with the spice rack!
