Is Beckham Being Played?

While Posh stirred things up in Hollywood this weekend, hubby David got the green light back home to breeze through the rest of the season with Real Madrid before heading to the L.A. Galaxy.

"He will practice, but he is not going to play," coach Fabio Capello tells the New York Post. "A player who has such a major contract with another team ... we cannot count on him."

With all that free time, Becks can daydream about what kind of digs that new $250 million contract can buy him in the States. Of course, it'll be hard to top their $13.6 million home in England – referred to as "Beckingham Palace" – which features a $40,000 treehouse and $252,000 fort for their kids.

Donald to Condi -- You're a Joke

It seems that no one's safe from Donald Trump's wrath -- not even Secretary of State Condi Rice.

Nothing happens, it's a joke, nothing ever happens. I think she's a very nice woman, but I don't want a nice woman. I want someone that's not necessarily nice." Who is Trump's kind of woman? Senator Hillary Clinton, who he calls "very capable."
