This weekend we have yet again had more so called revelations about " celebrities" and their sex lives. Not a month seems to go by without someone else being outed by an ex lover or Mistress.

I haven't ,as I'm not a red top tabloid newspaper reader read much of what has been going on in any of the recent scandals but I fail to understand why anyone would put themselves up for such public scrutiny.
They say they were a persons mistress and then some other low life comes out of the woodwork and tells about their kinky sex sessions with the lover who has just outed a celebrity.

I am sure they can't make that much money from these stories, are they daft , looking for their moment of fame, or simply trying to exact revenge?

Personally i would not blame Becks for doing it, after all Posh is one of the biggest turn offs out there. Look at their marriage anyway, hardly what i would call loving, economically convenient i would say, eh?

Fame and then money I reckon.

Many "celebrities" started out in dodgy PR work/adverts - some of them verging on soft porn. Many have been willing to pose in their underwear (or less) for the local rag as a gateway to national/international stardom. Fame at any price.

The 'kiss and tell' (aka slapper) woman is reported to have made at least 350,000, with more to come. Just think, this being Easter, that the usual price was 30 pieces of silver.

Fame, notoriety, ego, cash, career - in some perverse way these all give some sufficient motivation to 'dish the dirt'. Flo, I have read some of the exclusive' gutter' press reports on this particular story and its obvious that it is contrived, carefully written, managed, adjusted etc to achieve its aim - ie sell newspapers. You can guarantee that the 'whistle blower' will suffer for it in the end, and only be left with the cash element.

(btw - who were those two young ladies who stitched up some politician a few years ago - came over the pond with their mum and appeared on every tv prog and newspaper. Wonder what happened to them.)

5 Figures , that is scandalous !!!

Money is something i am very short of at the moment but the thought of having my life dissected and scandalised by the press is so abhorrent I could not imagine stooping so low as to sell such a story.
Imagine in years to come when your child finds out, or how your family would suffer now.
Perhaps these people really do live one of those soap opera type lives as in "Footballers wives" where such notoriety is acceptable.
But then dignity and head held high is a foreign concept to far too many people these days

Come on guys and gals...who amongst us would not kiss and tell after a failed relationship/fling...for 350K I certainly would ;)

...and what 'stigma'? if anything I think it would be seen as good fortune and a 'cool' thing to do by yr future generations :cool:

I agree with Boss Raptor! Alas as I leaf through the pathetically empty pages of my little black book there seems to be a complete dearth of celebrities to tell about. Life has dealt me a bad hand, this proves it.

The thing that amazes me time after time is that the women are seen as 'slappers'.

I'm sorry, but they were single at the time..............the married man involved should certainly NOT be given a slap on the back for being one of the lads.

Guys like this deserve all they blooming well get! :mad:

I'd have to pay Claudia Schiffer at least 350,000 for a shag, but if I can claim it all back from The Sun, then that's a good deal in my book.

I'd pay 350,000 not to shag Posh.

That does it. I'm definitely not going to sleep with you now.

13th Apr 2004, 13:11
I suppose the renumeration depends on who these people slept with.
350k is a lot but it should go up to about 500k if confessing to sleeping with someone really embarassing like Jeffrey Archer.

The NoW and Sun have now milked this as a front page story for ten days. Loos has sold her story to - guess who? - Sky, and Sky programmes are carrying a teaser for it onscreen. Today's Sun carries a more-or-less nude photo of the 'lady' concerned. The Murdoch pack say that she may be on 500,000 for the story, and I presume that they know, as it is their money.


Yuk.

Does 'kiss and tell' imply that you are 'telling' the truth?

If not, I could probably earn millions for my revelations of kinky sessions with Mrs Bliar's mac, steamy txt messages from Patrick Moore, revelations about what I found under Dickie Davies's moustache, and stunning pix of the naked newsreader (age 6 months).

Well said Mr Chips. My sentiments exactly.
The Beckhams have one of the most effective self-publicity machines in entertainment and love publicity as long as they can control it - and, of course, provided they're being paid enormous sums of money. They created the image of the 'celebrity couple', have milked it for all it's worth and are arguably the greediest couple in the entertainment world. How much was it they charged for photographs of their wedding? 1 million? And for pics of their babies?

The sad part is the tabloids are prepared to pay such ridiculous amounts of money because, for some reason, tabloid readers want to read trivia about the odious couple.

There are actually MORE men than women who have responded to this thread, which just goes to show which gender, around here, is interested.

I have my own kiss story, but wont tell, it was 'nothing' to talk about anyway! :{ ;)

For 350,000 I would become a slapper but there again I have few morals.

If these guys did not want to be found out should have kept the snake in the pants. Saving that [email protected] a deaf mute that is blind would minimise any collateral damage :ok:

Come on folks... We all know deep down that the Beckham texts scandal is totally untrue!

Or, he has kept it very quiet and away from the press that he has had private tuition on how to read and write!

It makes my blood boil, all the appalling things happening in the world today and we have to have the pathetic beckhams forced in our faces all the time! How can some of the families of the hostages in Iraq feel when an important story has been pushed away from the front pages because of beckhams inability to keep it in his pants! Mind you with a wife like crater face I cannot somehow blame him for straying.

Hoped when they went to Spain we might have had a break from them for a few years, WRONG!

After all, who exactly are they? An average footballer and a mediocre has been singer! The only thing they do have is a very good PR company!


Lets hope she shoots and kills him in a fit of rage and then turns the gun on herself!

Now that would be worth reading about! (for about ten seconds!)

Fortunatly, I'm from a country where the press has decided that they will not report on "side-steps". Besides, who the f. is in the least bit interested in how an average, albeit good looking, football player and his wife of zero to naught talents are getting along?

Whether Beckham has had an affair or not has absolutely no impact on my life whatsoever, much in the same way as anyone else who is not family or a friend.

Why do so many people in this country apparently lust for this type of 'news'? Its totally pointless and not in any real sense of news reporting, news!

I seem to be saying this more and more these days, but what is the world and, in particular, this country coming to.

If people weren't obsessed with this sort of thing, then Miss Loos (there's a gag here somewhere) would never have come forward with the story. Even if it was true, I doubt that she would have come forward and told the world if there wasn't a nice big fat cheque heading her way as a result.

That's the way of the world now. Money, money, money...and not forgetting corruption which comes so naturally with money. Oh and don't forget greed, another good friend of money, who'll sell you out to corruption at the first opportunity.

Where are the real values of life? What happened to people wanting to lead a good enjoyable but simple life?

C'mon 5bucks, that a little unfair. There is no solid evidence that he broke his marriage vows, only the word of these women.What credibility do they have, anyway? Anyone who screams to the world that they slept with a famous person obviously has a mind that is a seething miasma of pyschogelignite. Sort of like that silly girl who decided to "go public" with some flirtatous SMS that she exchanged with Shane Warne(if she thought she was taking the high moral ground,as she claimed, then she's dumber then she looked).

Todays Sydney Morning Herald reveled that the Aussie 'model' who claims she bedded Becks has spent more time working for escort rather than modeling agencies.

15th Apr 2004, 21:55
annarantly he has a **** on his **** (at least according to the Mirror today) and because Miss Loos knows this, it completely vindicates her. alledgedly.

Anyway the fact that this discussion has now reached 3 pages shows that we must all like this kind of thing, albeit secretly.

15th Apr 2004, 22:07
Although basically I couldn't give a b***er about Beckham, the one thing that I find unusual is the number of texts that appear to have been kept, and by different people.

Surely it is not normal to be able to keep that number of texts sat around in a mobile?.

Mine fills up relatively quickly and the memory needs to be cleared.

So either the people involved have somehow managed to keep the texts (and for what reason may one ask), or alternatively someone has managed to intercept the texts.

Ralph,
Your right. There is no proof yet. And yet the single woman is the slag and trashed in the press for coming forward and he is still worshipped and pitied for his alleged infidelity. She is seen as evil. And he is made to feel sorry for because his wife wont move to Spain to be with him. He is still acceptable. The single woman is unacceptable. He is still good. She is evil. He is the one whose married remember??? Do you think women are evil?

But it certainly sells newspapers - at least in the UK - to gullible poms who need to get a life.

Down under, who gives a continental - except the owner of a Sydney 'knocking shop' who apparently reckons that one of Beck's 'girlfriends' was on his (the owner's) payroll (and web site) at the time Comrade Becks is alleged to have flown the mission. Said gent claims that Becks didn't pay the man for the girl's .. er .. time. Definitely not the hallmark of a gentleman. True love? Unlikely, as he apparently didn't love her in the morning - but really a matter for those concerned, and not the world at large.

Finally seen a picture of this Rebecca Loos, wot Beckham shagged.

Seems Becks is into S&M, 'cos both Loos and Posh look like collar and leash material. He can shag the most beautiful girls in the world, and he ends up with these two dogs.

Amazing.

As I do not give a monkey's about Posh or Becks I would not have reacted until it (very belated) struck me that it can not be common knowledge that "Loos" as in the before mentioned person Rebecca Loos, means something like "Harlot" in Dutch. (Being semi-Dutch she will be aware of that)
Not exactly translated correctly but the knowledgeable people can use the song '"daar was eens een meisje loos" as context.
Bit unfortunate name I would say, because having now read this thread (despite not giving a monkey's!) I totally agree that it is (IF true) Becks who should be pointed at and not Posh or Ms Loos. He is the married one and he is (alledegedly - SP) doing it outside.

IF she divorces him for adultery I don't think there will be much of a contest! So half of everything he has she'll get...houses...savings....etc etc...
Oh and then there's the maintenance for the kids - to keep them in a manner to which they are accustomed...he'll have to fork out a pretty penny for them too.
