Regular readers know I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with Victoria Beckham.
I got my hair cut like hers once back in the ’90s and I want to shag David (if he promises not to speak during, before or after) so if she ever reads bohomoth and gets her knickers in a twist she can console herself with those two facts.
I’ve been having a read of the highlights of Vicky’s Elle magazine interview and once I’d finished eye rolling at her going on about how hard she works and what a “control freak” she is with “a very specific vision” (f-ck off Vic, a lot of us work hard and have kids, get over it) she then gives us a brilliant snapshot into Beckham family life.
The woman whose breakfast during what was no doubt an eight hour or more shoot looks like this (below) then goes on to talk about cooking for her four kids.
After being handed a plate of Yorkshire puddings to take home for the Beckham brood, Posh says: ‘The kids are going to LOVE me when I walk in with these,’
‘You know what they say to me, because I’m not the best cook, although I try really hard? They always say to me, “Mummy, we know that the main ingredient in what you make is love.”‘
The magazine adds: “With that, she roared with laughter.”
Yes, I’m sure they probably said that once (after her mum Jackie prompted them) and it was about a tray of frozen sausages in blankets she’d got from Iceland and reheated rather than cooked from scratch but it’s that self-deprecating Victoria that I love rather than the one that stalks around with her tongue on the roof of her mouth so she looks more drawn and with defined cheekbones in paparazzi photographs.
Case in point: la Beckham out in London with a possibly normal-sized handbag today.
Here’s what Victoria had for lunch during the Elle mag Vegas shoot (hot water, lemon, cucumber and salad with no dressing- I bet she secretly looked down on anyone who touched the bread and bonded with anyone who didn’t).
