BBC America will be airing the "documentary" (and I'm using the term loosely) What's Eating Victoria Beckham on Wednesday night, Aug 8, at 8pm and 11pm, and rebroadcasting it on Saturday Aug 11. The program originally aired in the UK a few months ago on Channel Five, and charts Posh Spice's body through the years, including weight (loss), boobs (gain), and so forth. In it, a ragtag collection of people who want their 15 minutes of fame and a slice of the Beckham cake dish about their surmises and feelings toward Lady Bex.
While I'm not exactly a fan, this program is vicious garbage on a grand scale. Almost as heinous as that Photoshopped image of Victoria Beckham in the tabloid magazine Daily Mail — I could have made that myself, if I had the ethics and mindset of a flea. But in England as in America, whatever sells. Some may think people who put themselves in the limelight as ardently as Victoria Beckham does deserve all they get but I, for one, think there has to be some line of decency drawn. Judge for yourselves, Glam Girls. I'd love to hear what you thought of it.
In other Beckham news, the couple launched their fragrance line Intimately Beckham for the US markets in Beverly Hills last week. The Beckham scents, for him and for her, will hit the department stores in September, drugstores in January 2008. But guess what, I found an online perfume shop that already ships it now (the scent has been available in the UK since last year):

Victoria Beckham told Women's Wear Daily: "Why is this different from any other celebrity fragrance? The fact that (I) have spent a lot of time checking all the details. We are not just saying, 'We are celebrities, put our name on it.' I love to be involved with the whole process."
