David Beckham Won't Come Out and Play

7/21/2007 9:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

david beckhamBrit soccer hottie David Beckham came, saw and ... got benched? Only a week after conquering American shores, Becks found out that a bum ankle will keep him from playing soccer today. Beckham's team, the L.A. Galaxy, go up against Chelsea FC, which features many of Becks' former England national teammates.

Instead of roughing it up on the field, Becks, along with wife-y Posh, will reportedly be enjoying a "welcome to L.A." party hosted by new neighbors and BFFs Tom and Katie Cruise and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.

In the meantime, Becks has been spotted out with Princess Posh, protecting her crotch from camera shots. Nice save!

Surfs Up (Lessons) for McConaughey

Matthew McConaugheyBongo-playing mimbo Matthew McConaughey may look like a natural wave rider, but in order to be ready for his next movie, "Surfer Dude" (wonder what that's about?), McConaughey's been taking surfing lessons. Page Six reports that muscle-y McConaughey's been spotted in Malibu accompanied by a surf coach in a kayak and two friends. Hang ten, dude!




No Love for Wilmer

Will ValderramaThey were thick as thieves on TV and during the early days, but now it seems the castmates of "That '70s Show" just can't find the time for one another. Case in point: tonight wiley Wilmer Valderrama launches his fashion line Calavena in The Hamptons at Stereo. Will his castmates and formerly close friends Topher Grace and Danny Masterson be in attendance? Not so, reports the N.Y. Post. It looks like Grace's dance card is full -- he'll be in the Hamptons, but at the Estate, at another fashion show, and Masterson is booked for an appearance at Dune.

Party Favors...Jody Sweetin Has Own Full House...Soap Star Gets Own Star...


"Full House" star Jody Sweetin, who played Stephanie on the sitcom, got married last Saturday to longtime boyfriend Cody Herpin in Las Vegas at the Church of the West on the Vegas Strip. Sweetin, who once battled a methamphetamine addiction, was married once before. ... Soap actor Eric Braeden, who's played Victor Newman on "The Young and the Restless" for more than 25 years, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday. Most surprising? Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura was in attendance. Apparently, he's a big fan!

I didn't realize she was married to Victer Newman......41 yrs her senior. He is old enough to be her grandfather.

BTW, her biography makes no mention of this marriage. It says she married police officer Shaun Holguin on July 27, 2002

Braden and Ventura are actually good friends. In fact, Braden once talked Y&R writers into giving Ventura a one-or-two day part as himself on the soap shortly after Ventura became governor (as Victor Newman resides in Wisconsin, next-door-neighbor to Minnesota).

Um, Barbara, you've got your items mixed up. Jodi Sweetin married her 30-year-old boyfriend, NOT Eric Braden.

Becks has a contract worth an estimated 250 mill and he's benched. He could have done this in England for cheaper I'll bet. I wonder how long before the golden glow starts to wear off on him. Chelsea will win today anyway

Ugh that's nasty picture of that guy Beckham, haha. That's F'd Up!

Wilmer will never have a gig that lasts that long again. He better have saved those pesos 'cuz that Yo Momma gig isn't gonna go another season. Plus that show is lame. Masterson is a loser and Topher is a punk. Ashton is the only one that's doing it big.

Remember Red in Robocop? Hahaha.

ooh that hurts good    

so that's what they do on the soccer field. No wonder it is so popular, but should this team be in San Fransisco?

I bet all the 15 or so big time Beckham fans wish they would have saved their money and stayed home for his 'big LA debut'.

Thank God real football is just around the corner.

Barbara C:

I've done that before, too, mixed up the two items. At least you were right for being upset for a possible 41 yr age gap (though that probably would have somehow been defended in Tinseltown!). Anyway, Sweetin WAS married to a cop first who divorced her after her meth addiction came to light. (I am doing my best to remember the People magazine article I read--LOL). I think I remember her saying they still loved each other but that he couldn't trust her anymore, plus his credibility as a cop was tested at work since he didn't even realize his wife had a problem, etc. etc.

Let's hope she can maintain an even keel now. The article makes it sound as if she's not an addict anymore but we all know meth is the worst one to try to break and is a daily battle for the rest of your life...

TMZ u messed UP!!! I'm a huge full house fan she was never married to Eric Braeden. He has been married to the same woman since 1966. CHECK YOUR FACTS. thats a simple one to verify. I'm full of useless info. And even i KNOW that. Go to IMDB.com and put Eric Braeden in the search engine. You might want to do that from now on. Don't get me wrong i ADORE your web sight. but don't start steering me wrong!!!!
