Celebritology Clip n' Save: How to Live In America (If You're a British Soccer Star or His Wife)

The Beckhams are coming to America. Becks -- international soccer star, Mr. Posh and all around pretty boy -- is reportedly set to sign a five-year $250 million dollar contract with the MLS's L.A. Galaxy soccer team. This is apparently some kind of big deal for American soccer, as ably explained by The Post's Steven Goff and Dan Steinberg, but I'm more interested in seeing if Becks and Posh will be able to bend it like Brangelina -- meaning, how will these two English roses react to the hot Hollywood climate? Victoria and David Beckham, California bound. (AP) Hoping to ease their trip across the pond, I've called on celebrity advice SWAT team member Lisa Todorovich to help me come up with a few tips for the transplants. 1. No matter what, stay away from Paris Hilton. Her tastes tend to run more to fallen pop stars and Greek shipping...

Rosie and Donald -- Enough Already!

It was Rosie O'Donnell, I believe, who first took Donald Trump to task for presuming to act as the "moral compass" for young American women. To paraphrase, she asked how this man -- who had two divorces and some possible extra-marital affairs under his belt -- could presume to decide what constitutes acceptable behavior for Miss USA, to whom he granted a second chance after she was caught doing a little underage drinking. I agreed with Rosie at the time, but like most Americans, assumed Trump was exploiting the Tara Conner incident to buy the pageant (which he owns) and himself a little time in the sun. But three weeks later, this thing has had enough sun to cause first-degree burns and instead of consolidating support for her initial good read of the situation, Rosie has lost all credibility, and proved herself to be as petty and headline-hungry as Trump....

Wanted: A Little Reality for Britney

Help me help her. (AP) Oh my god, y'all: As mentioned briefly in yesterday's morning mix, a Miami production company may be hiring supporting cast for a new Britney Spears reality show. This want ad (scroll down) was purportedly posted to Miami's Craigslist sometime on Sunday, though I can't seem to find it online now. Still, Britney Spears doing another reality show (the first was "Chaotic") falls into the realm of the believable, almost more believable than any chance of a 2007 musical comeback for the self-destructing singer. The show concept apparently places a succession of average fans as Spears's personal assistant -- 24 hours a day for five straight days: Your job will be to give her guidance, perception and help her with comeback. For this 16 week audition/interview, we are looking for 8 males and 8 females to compete for a position on Britney's new team. The...

Rosie vs. The 'Comb-over Bunny'

Donald Trump and Rosie O'Donnell. (AP Photos) Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump are still at it. Not only did Rosie up the ante yesterday by referring to Trump as a "comb-over bunny," the New York Post is also reporting that the "View" co-host took boss Barbara Walters to task yesterday for not defending her... enough. If you're late to this particular funfest, here's a quick recap: Miss USA Tara Conner is busted partying underage and comes thisclose to losing her crown. Trump, who owns the pageant, forgives her, saying she deserves a second chance. Rosie asks where Trump gets off posing as the moral compass for teenage girls and adds that he's been bankrupt several times. This is accompanied by some jabs at his swoosh of hair. Donald, incensed at Rosie's criticism, bites back. He calls Rosie fat. He calls Rosie a slob. American families are divided: reasonable, intelligent...
