Presumably because she’d rather eat her own arm (or any solid foods, for that matter) than have a reporter ask her about rejoining the Spice Girls, Victoria Beckham took a Percocet, scheduled a sit-down with a reporter, and proceeded to smile the day away and talk about why so many people think she and David Beckham are on the rocks (hint: sometimes he implies it!). Posh has a new Reebok partnership to promote and buried a passing line in the overall story about the divorce rumors.
The Guardian chatted with Posh about how she’s collaborating with Reebok on what’s expected to be her most affordable, easy-to-access goods since Spic World. The interview happened in a Brooklyn warehouse where Victoria allegedly calls all the shots and manages to shut everyone up just by beginning to speak. Psh, that’s just because everyone who works for her only took the job to see if, just maybe, she’ll ever break out into “SPICE UP YOUR LIFE!” Alas, today isn’t that day, America. Or England. Instead, the reporter asks her about the pesky fact that her company still hasn’t pulled a profit, and Victoria was ready to defend her clothes:
“At the moment the brand is significantly bigger than the business. I want them to be the same size. That is 100% the plan, to reach as many women as I can. You know who I was thinking about the other day? Donna Karan, and what she achieved.”
I was really hoping she’d say Rommy Revson, the inventor of the Scrunchie, just to shake shit up, but I guess Donna is a better goal since Donna sold her business for $400 million while Victoria’s required David to make a £30 million investment last year to keep it afloat and expand.
SPEAKING OF David, Victoria has always been at the brunt of divorce rumors stemming from everything from her being difficult to David boning their daughter’s teacher and knocking her up. The Guardian interview took place a week after everyone thought it was done for good, but Victoria made a point of saying how they’re rooted together in London, nobody will give a rat’s ass about them if they separate, they’re partners in all businesses, and she doesn’t pay it any attention – but does recognize it can be a blessing and a curse:
“People are interested in my personal life. And sometimes that works in my favour and sometimes it’s things that I don’t like. I’m not going to let it get me down.”
When there is a story about divorcing David in the news, Victoria seems pretty hands-off:
“It can get quite frustrating.But I leave it to my PR team. I don’t get involved.”
She then shimmied away from that and went off about how people tell fake stories about her all the time, like how she demanded an assistant get her food from a posh restauarant when all she had asked was for fruit tray from a convenience store. HA! Oh, Victoria, just stop. I can maybe buy that you and David are just fine, but discount, pre-packaged food going down your gullet? Now THAT’s a whopper of a lie.
