Much to everyone’s delight, the WAG Wars of 2019 continue. Earlier this week, Coleen “Wagatha Christie” Rooney earned the right to dramatically pull her sunglasses off, look directly into the camera, and deliver the line “Now that’s what I’d call…. a penalty click *YEAHHHHHHHHH!!!*” when she accused her fellow WAG (footballer’s wife) Rebekah Vardy of selling her business to The Sun. Coleen set a trap wherein she posted false stories about her life as bait on her Instagram account, blocked everyone but Becky from seeing them, and drummed her fingers waiting for The Sun to cover them. Which they did. She then put Becky on blast by posting the results of her investigation on Instagram. Becky, who if you didn’t already know, is HEAVILY PREGNANT, posted an aghast defense, also on Instagram, proclaiming her innocence. Now she’s taken time out of her Dubai vacation to set the record straight in an interview with The Daily Mail. Can you believe The Sun chose now, of all times, to stop returning her calls!?!
First and foremost, Becky swears she’s innocent so get that into your mind right now. She’s innocent. She didn’t do it. It wasn’t her. It was the one armed man. OK. Moving on. According to DM, as soon as Coleen’s accusations were made public, Becky called her on the phone to hash things out. However, things didn’t go so well. Becky likened arguing with Coleen to arguing with a pigeon. I mean, have you ever tried arguing with a pigeon? No, and neither has anybody else. Who does that?
‘I said to her: “Coleen, what on earth have you done?”‘ Becky says.
‘It was not an easy phone call. She said to me: “I’m not pointing the finger” and I said: “You have just annihilated me in public and hung me out to dry. The whole world hates me!”
‘I thought she was my friend but she completely annihilated me. She said: “You know, I always really liked you, which makes it harder.”‘
Did the two women argue, I ask? Becky is careful not to explicitly denounce Coleen, but says: ‘That would be like arguing with a pigeon. You can tell it that you are right and it is wrong, but it’s still going to shit in your hair.’
I’m still trying to wrap my head around why anybody would a give pigeon that much power. Becky says she’s speaking out now to stop the torrent of abuse she’s received since the story broke.
Over 24 hours, this has escalated and escalated,’ she says. ‘I wasn’t going to say anything but it has gone so extreme. I have been told that I should die, that my children should die, my unborn child should die. It would be unacceptable for anyone.
Dammit, why can’t people just be chill and have fun without ruining everything with unoriginal trolling. Becky says she’s tough, but the online harassment made her cry.
Still on holiday in Dubai, Becky certainly sounds rattled, at one point breaking off from our conversation to weep.
Becky rallied though, well enough to remind people of that time Coleen’s husband got into a spot of trouble.
She adds: ‘We have always got on and that is what makes it all the more difficult. For instance, I messaged her when Wayne was in trouble over the drink-driving. I have been a supportive friend.
DM says that so far, Coleen has declined to come up with any receipts. And Becky has hired a “forensic cybersecurity expert” to help prove her innocence. Becky claims that “quite a few people” have had access to her Instagram account “including a PR agency and an advertising agency”, all of whom she had given her password to. Becky says that through this ordeal, she’s found out who her real friends are. (also via DM):
Fellow former WAG Danielle Lloyd posted some rat emojis in the comments section of Coleen’s post and even Wayne Rooney prostitute Helen Wood leaped to Coleen’s defence.
She wrote: ‘Probably shouldn’t comment but going to anyway always said Rebekah Vardy was a snake in the grass hence why I’m blocked her whole persona screamed it on the jungle. Sly eyes too.’
That’s colorful! I’m not even going to click down the rabbit hole to find out what “Wayne Rooney prostitute Helen Wood” is all about. Who’s got the time?!? Here’s what Becky had to say about Danielle Lloyd’s comments.
Although Becky says she has nothing to say on the subject, she does mutter: ‘Hypocrite.’
Guys, I have a feeling this is just the tip of the iceberg. A source claims that Becky and her husband have cut their Dubai vacation short and are headed home to consult with their lawyer and cyber expert. Hopefully before too long, we’ll have the answers we deserve! Meanwhile, here’s me trying to explain this whole saga to my husband last night.
