Victoria Beckham is finding out that being beautiful and successful as well as being one-half of a celeb couple is not enough to impress soccer moms in L.A.
A Spoof reporter hung out at an elementary school soccer practice session and recorded some of the comments by the assembled moms. Four samples follow:
1. The head of the refreshment committee rolled her eyes and indicated that she was not hopeful that a lot of help would be coming from Posh, saying, "I doubt that she'll be baking cookies for our parties. And cleaning up afterwards? Fuhgedaboutit!" The woman sighed. But then she smiled and added, "Have to admit that if I had a David Beckham to go home to, I might not be so happy to stay here and help with the cleanup either."
2. One of the moms (clearly a social climber) whined, "Just because her name is Victoria, she thinks she's royalty."
3. The president of the PTA made it clear that she wouldn't be expecting much academic input from Mrs. Beckham since "her...uh...talents don't seem to be along those lines."
4. As the mothers were rounding up their kids and heading home, one of the moms in the group suggested that Posh might fit in better on the East Coast. "You know," she said, "a place like Boston." One of the women shook her head from side to side and said sadly, "Remember the Boston Tea Party of 1773." Non-history buffs in the group gave her a blank look, so the woman explained, "To make a long story short, it's what happened the last time Brits shipped us over something we didn't want. The folks in Boston took swift action and just dumped it in the harbor. Posh had better watch her step!"
