Victoria Beckham celebrated her 39th birthday by looking at a cake

I wasn’t going to write about Victoria Beckham’s 39th birthday until I saw this Twitter photo. I think it was one year ago when Victoria Beckham tweeted another photo of her birthday celebration, and her birthday reward was… a fruit plate. So for this birthday, Victoria got an actual birthday cake and she tweeted the above photo of said cake. Note that we are not actually seeing her take an actual bite of a piece of cake. That’s because NO. That’s because Victoria’s birthday present to herself was looking at the cake. Not eating it. One must never eat the cake. Even looking at the cake adds too many calories!! If you think about calories, you will get fat, in Victoria’s mind. And in Victoria’s mind, fat = size 2.

Posh and her whole family celebrated her birthday in London with a nice dinner at Nobu earlier this week. All of the kids were spotted with her – half the family had just flown in from LA. Listen to how time flies: Posh’s oldest kid, Brooklyn, is 14 years old now. When did that happen? Romeo is 10, Cruz is 7 and Harper is one and a half I think. When Posh tweeted the header photo earlier today, she included the message: “Thank u for all your kind messages fashion bunnies, I had such a special birthday x v”. Is “fashion bunnies” the new thing and no one told me? I like it! You bitches are fashion bunnies.

Some photos of Posh and family earlier this week – Harper’s hair is getting so long!

    Never change Vicky Posh. Never.

  2. Agnes says:

    Yeah, didn’t she look at fruit last year? Sad that I remember that, but it really struck me because of its ridiculousness.

  3. Shannon says:

    Doesn’t she just want to woof that cake down?? I’m currently on a low cal diet and I could seriously eat a horse!!! Put a cake in front of me and I would inhale it. This bitch never eats.

    • LadyMTL says:

      She’s got iron willpower, because I’d be right there with you snarfing down the cake. LOL. Unless it was a flavour that I hated, like mocha, I’d have inhaled it in less time than it’d take to get a picture.

      • Shannon says:

        Ugh my will power is slowly dying. I’m finding myself fantasizing about burgers, pizza and everything BAD. It’s a sad state of affairs when you are fantasizing more about food then sex.

      • Manchurian Global says:

        I seem to remember an interview with her where she was asked whether she would ever eat a cookie. And no, she swore up and down that even if a delicious cookie were in front of her, she would absolutely not eat it under any circumstances.

        I totally believe that.

    • videli says:

      Think lettuce, Shannon, lettuce! Hot men wrapped in lettuce leaves!

    • MavenTheFirst says:

      What is ironic to me is that she’s loaded with money, can travel the world and experience so many things including cuisines. Stuff I can only dream about. Imagine having a banquet before you all the time and never partaking. Sounds like hell to me.

      • Shannon says:

        Isn’t there a saying….nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. Being skinny feels good but biting into a big, fat juice burger feels pretty f-ing amazing too.

      • Eve says:

        I’m not sure if that’s a saying, but I’m certain Kate Moss once said that.

    • Maria says:

      plan a ‘cheat’ meal every 4 days. behave with greens and proteins for 3 days, and KNOW that on day 4, you can have treat. Throw your body a few extra calories every few days to trick it into thinking you’re NOT dieting so your metabolism doesn’t start to drop too much. it’s calories over the week that matters, not each day since it’s always different. you can look forward to a treat and stay sane, as long as that cheat doesn’t set you off to binge out.
      carb cycling, simple science but divine for you. PROMISE!

    • Lauren says:

      Low cal diets are torture. Take some pure coffee bean extract supplements, with Raspberry Ketone. I was very resistant to taking these, but i can still ingest healthy food and lose weight. I had a pudgy gross tummy for exercise would help..and within a month my tummy blubbler is gone. Just some friendly advice.

  4. Eve says:

    “One must never eat the cake.”


    • Lucy says:

      Is she friends with GOOP? If not they should be

      • Isabella says:

        I don’t like that pairing. Vicky is so charming, while goop is repulsive with her dismissive attitude.

      • Zimmer says:

        They both sure have food issues, but I agree Victoria seems like she’d be more fun and self-deprecating. Wish she’d let herself enjoy food. It is one of the great pleasures in life. Wonder what kind of parents she had or if her problem with food was the result of some other traumatic experience. Also, hasn’t anyone told her that smiling is good for her???

      • Modelspiceboi says:

        Victoria was pushed to be thin while she trained as a dancer. Then when she joined the Spice Girls, their original managers told her to lose weight. Then in the early Spice days, the press got on her. The only times she eats “regularly” are when she’s preggers it seems.

        By the by, she smiles a lot, it doesn’t get photographed much because in the Spice days, she didnt like how her smile looked in publicity shots. It then became part of the character.

  5. Lisa says:

    Ha…headline cracked me up. Little Harper is a doll.

    • Addison says:

      This was so hilarious I thought I was gonna pop a vocal chord. Kaiser that headline and entire first paragraph gave me the best laugh in the longest time. I was laughing histerically that I was crying.

      Good stuff Kaiser. Good stuff.

  6. BooBooLaRue says:

    Harper is so cute, but such ennui!

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Yes, she is so Baby “Bla-zay”!

      What a beautiful little face. However, I doubt it will be long before she goes full-on “Blue Steel.”

  7. Ash says:

    Geez Louise they have cute kids. But she always looks so incredibly miserable. I wonder what she’s like in real life.

    • Trek Girl says:

      She’s actually funny and sweet, despite the rather serious look she so often sports.

    • AlexandraJane says:

      Apparently she doesn’t smile because she thinks her smile is ugly, and the media will laugh at her for it. Which is shame.

    • EllaM says:

      I think Lainey posted a story a while ago about fans approaching her and her family to take pictures during a meal. She refused, because she had some kind of skin treatment and her skin was red or something, but offered that she would take pictures of the fans and David instead.

      And there is of course this video of her, David and Ali G (Sacha Baron Cohen), where she is laughing so hard while Sacha is mocking David and her, that she has tears in her eyes:

      The always serious fashionista is imho just a made up public image. I bet it’s really fun to hang out with her.

  8. Hoya_chick says:

    Errr I just had a toasted whole wheat bagel from Au Bon Pain for breakfast! Oh the humanity! Lol. Her kids are adorable and if she can be satisfied just looking a cake, she is a better than me!

    I don’t know if I want to be a fashion bunny, I’ll think about it. I’m much more of a bitch, than a bunny.

  9. lucy2 says:

    The kids are very cute.
    I feel bad for her. Being healthy and fit is one thing, but starving yourself and never enjoying any food to stay stick skinny for what, fashion? is a crappy way to live.

  10. noncontentious says:


  11. Stella says:

    Harper is such a beautiful little girl! ^_^

    Love V when her hair is longer.

  12. Charlotte says:

    I think she’s great. I hate smiling and showing my teeth too, but in real life speak only in sarcasm and bad taste jokes. I bet she’s a blast to hang out with.

    • Nev says:

      Look for their show Coming To America or something on YouTube. Pure jokes!!!

      • Msammy says:

        Yes! That show was on ages ago and I still die thinking about her in the earthquake trailer.

    • ya says:

      Ya and maybe she has that kind of serious/dour public persona for privacy’s sake – it’s a way of hiding her personal life a bit.

    • Irishae says:

      “I hate smiling and showing my teeth too, but in real life speak only in sarcasm and bad taste jokes.”

      Where have you been all my life? ;)

  13. Eve says:

    Well, at least she isn’t looking at the cake like she wants to KILL IT — like she did with those poor cupcakes a while ago:

  14. anoneemouse says:

    I admire Posh – she seems like a really “hands on” Mom. I would trade for her life any day!

    • videli says:

      I’m hardly an admirer, but there’s something very solid about her and the kids, she seems quit the dotting mom.

    • Zelle says:

      I like her too. She keeps herself skinny because she is really into fashion. I can understand that. She doesn’t advocate a diet for everybody or insist this is the way normal people should live(unlike Goop). And I am pretty sure she doesn’t restrict what her kids eat!

  15. Nicolette says:

    Harper is simply adorable.

    Victoria’s face would probably crack if she ever smiled or showed any sign of emotion, or life for that matter.

  16. anotherrandom says:

    She looks effin gorgeous! I hope I can look half as good at her age. It must be the uber expensive creams and stuff she has access to. Also, I didn’t realize she started having kids so young. On a positive note, her arms don’t look nearly as skinny as they used to in the top photo.

  17. Ginger says:

    My husbands nickname for me is snuggle bunny so naturally I’m a fashion bunny!

  18. Miss Kiki says:

    I love Vicky B, AlwayzN4Eva

  19. DreamyK says:

    The cake is a lie!

  20. Cam S says:

    That’s not real cake, it’s a piece of styrofoam with icing. Last year she got a fruit platter. I actually liked that idea

  21. anneesezz says:

    I’d rather eat the cake and smile just once! She’s so effin miserable. I have never seen this woman smile. Seriously, is it that important to be stick thin? Plus, every man I know likes curvy women not ones that look like 13 year old boys. Just sayin.

    • ya says:

      I heard she’s actually very funny in real life.

    • Kimble says:

      You have no idea who she is if you don’t realise how funny she is! She is far from miserable …

      • RHONYC says:


        remember in the ‘Coming to America’ special were she mocked/compared her paparazzi ‘face’ to that blow up doll then she slapped it across the face with a belt! Lmao! i almost pissed myself. :lol:

  22. Ann says:

    Nothing sexier than a woman who likes to eat!

  23. Dawn says:

    Now Vicky really is a size 2 and really does know fashion and is really married and really does have 4 great and beautiful kids unlike a certain other klan who could only hope to have what she has but never ever will. And all the money in the world will never ever be able to buy it.

  24. StaCat1 says:

    The headline made me laugh0 but it is sad if she deprives herself even on her birthday.

    She doesn’t look very happy in that pic (well- let’s face it – she doens’t look happy in many of them).

    I am sure she will pass on all her body issues/eating issues to Harper. Seriously, one bite will not kill her.

    She needs to learn about moderation.

  25. Reece says:

    I wanted to say something snarky but Harper is so damn cute! She melts my b*tchy heart.

  26. lola lola says:

    Best headline ever! Celebitchy you make my day.

  27. videli says:

    There is no cake/spoon.

  28. janie says:

    All her kids are adorable.. I love the way she is with her kids, she’s there. Happy BD Victoria!

  29. Sachi says:

    I don’t think she looks as thin now as she used to, like 3-4 years ago. I don’t think she’s starving herself, but she’s watching what she eats.

    The media is fickle. If she gains 10 lbs, people will call her fat. If she smiles, people will say she looks ugly. Just look at how people make fun of her nose. One minute they’re saying her nose was a “snout” and she was ugly, then the next they’re criticizing her for having a nose job.

    Call her miserable, unhappy, etc. but if she’s truly any of that, why do her kids look loved and well-behaved? She’s the parent they see and spend time with the most. If she’s truly miserable, it’ll spread to her family and home life, and her kids would reflect that.

    But they don’t. If anything, they all seem really close to their mother and are happy, well-adjusted kids.

    I think she’s just trolling the public now. There are many videos and articles out there saying she’s funny and nice and self-deprecating and the opposite of her public persona. If you want to believe she’s miserable and starving, that’s on you. Posh will be Posh. :D

  30. Marianne says:

    I think VB is really cute and she certainly does not jump on any bandwagons or try to court the media (I don’t think so, anyway?), however the fact sheis not even once accidentally caught smiling or with her eyes up makes me wonder. I had a friend like that and she suffered depression. She was always gloomy in photos and downcast. That is what VB reminds me of. I can’t imagine not once being caught out with a smile, especially when you are carting your kids around. My kids make me happy, I don’t think I could hold it in, not even if cameras followed me everywhere. I would be caught smiling at some point. I hnk there is a mental health issue here.

  31. teehee says:

    I love looking at her for my dose of eye candy– good fashion, styling, posing, etc- which I dont find in many people at all in hollywood. She fills a special gap for me :P

  32. Debbie says:

    I’m just here for the Harper.

  33. Aurelia says:

    At least she is honest about the fact that she doesn’t eat.

    Most skinny actresses/models lie and say ooooo, I eat burgers all the time, promise! I never go to the gymn either. Guess moi is just lucky. I have great genes, bla bla bla.

    Hate those fakers.

    • Debbie says:

      I am hearing “guess moi is just lucky” in Miss Piggy’s voice. I hope that’s not wrong.

    • EJ says:

      Thank You. So true. I’m a pretty thin girl, and (surprise) that’s because I watch every bite I eat. Food “issues” or not is another story, but most really thin women aren’t just “lucky,” or blessed with a good metabolism. Posh is the honest one in the bunch.

  34. Jennykins says:

    The cake is a lie

  35. RHONYC says:

    ‘Viva Forever’ Posh Vicki Becks!

    you do it all so well. :-D :oops: ;-)

  36. Baskingshark says:

    Now if I blow all these candles out at once, I shall wish for Katherine Jenkins to spontaneously combust.

  37. Snowpea says:

    God I love me some Vicky B!

    I don’t believe she doesn’t eat. I believe she is just very very careful about what she eats. She probably eats sashimi and baby greens and black coffee and blueberries and takes heaps of supplements so she’s not deficient.

    What is it to us though? Proof is in the pudding with VB. Her kids are freaking beautiful and well behaved, she has a really strong commitment to her family and she’s bloody hilarious to boot.

    Go pick on bloody Kim Kardashian if you’re feeling that way inclined. Leave my Vicky B alone! ;)

  38. hmm says:

    That little girl is absolutely precious and beautiful. It pains me to think that she’ll grow up to be a spoiled, insufferable, little brat, who also has serious body image issues and anorexia/bulimia because of who her mother is….

    • nikkie says:

      Why she be spoilt and insufferable? Her brothers aren’t. As for an eating disorder, i don’t believe her mother has one. VB makes her living in fashion andentertainment. She has to constantly watch her figure. If she chooses not to eat shit, awesome. I wish i had her willpower. Accusing someone of an eating disorder because they don’t eat cake is such an asshole thing to do. I don’t eat any grains or processed sugar, but I’m not anorexic or bulimic.

  39. Bread and Circuses says:

    Brooklyn looks SO much like his mom.

    Luckily (as with Prince William, who also got most of his mom’s face) that fact doesn’t stop him being a nice-looking bloke.

  40. YEP_ITS_HER says:

    Love Vicky. She gets an awful lot of ‘hate’ thrown her way, especially from UK folk. They criticize her for everything for her clothes, for her weight, for the ‘not smiling thing’. To some all of this is tantamount to her her not being good enough for her husband. Always had a soft spot for her because I just get the feeling that being married to a beautiful and much coveted man such as David has it’s own set of complications.

  41. Cody says:

    Sometimes I think that she is constantly being photographed with Harper, is because the press focuses less on VB and more on how cute Harper is. Harper is a good diversion tactic.

  42. magster says:

    I saw a video of her and Beck being interviewed by Ali-G. She was laughing and smiling throughout the most 8 minute long video. She has a beautiful smile. Wish she’d show it more often. Definitely a good looking family. Love Harper and her long hair. Such a cutie pie.

  43. Heathers says:

    say what you will about the woman, but her hair is gorgeous in these photos. So, so beautiful. And that baby girl is tragically cute. She looks like a painting.

  44. Panty Buns says:

    Her eyelashes look pretty. It looks like she’s almost managing to smile. Has she had botox and can she smile? Was she thinking “Gee, I’m the same age as Jack Benny”? (he always claimed he was 39). She looks pretty but way, way, way too skinny. I noticed her birthday cake read “Happy Birthday Victoria from (couldn’t read it) London. Not from family? She looks overworked. She would look a lot prettier if she put on some weight, was fully rested and smiled.

  45. Sarah says:

    Her face look like she hate this cake.
