Los Angeles, Calif. Since their arrival, David and Posh Victoria Beckham have captured the media's attention in a big way. I'd be willing to speculate that the, usual paparazzi magnets can't find a flash bulb to save their lives in the past few days
The Los Angeles Galaxy threw a huge welcoming party for David, thousands of fans and some 700 press persons were in attendance at the Home Depot Stadium in what Galaxy spokesmen described as a historic event. David Beckham could earn as much as 250 million dollars over the next 5 years playing soccer for the Galaxy. Beckham has the potential to be the man that could popularize soccer in the States.
Victoria has a reality show airing on NBC Monday, "Victoria Beckham, Coming to America", revolving around her move from England to the States. The Beckham explosion doesn't stop there, the couple has done a stripped down photo spread in W magazine to be released July 15th.
The couple moved into a 22 million dollar estate next door to friends, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
Victoria is the proud owner of a , 1 of 10 in existence, 1.8 million dollar sex toy. The vibrator is made of platinum and is encrusted with diamonds, for her pleasure, on a platinum chain studded with diamonds. You have the option of wearing it as jewelry for those special family gatherings or church perhaps.
In addition, the multi million record selling band, The Spice Girls are going on a reunion tour kicking off in December in Los Angeles. Victoria Beckham is of course, known as band member, Posh Spice.
Not only do they arrive, full tilt boogie, take no prisoner, damn the torpedos, full steam ahead they seem to manage the delicate balance between being parents and public figures.
It seems, this is just the tip of the iceberg, of the splash this couple is making in Hollywood. Less like splash, more like Tsunami.
Looks like the Beckham's are raising the level of play in Hollywood, beyond anything Paris, Britney or Lindsay could cook up in the past. Nip slips, beaver flashing and run ins with the law are low level, old hat attention getters after this, well orchestrated, meet the new neighbors, we've arrived, extravaganza.
The usual American suspects have their work cut out for them, the playing field has been modified, a new standard has been set. The Brits have landed, better get on your game on girls.,, think broader, these two are serious.
