Posh Spite

Bend It Like ... Oh, Who Cares? NBC has announced a summer reality show based on the second-least-interesting person on the face of the planet, Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham (the first would be husband David Beckham). On the upside, this could be a signal that TV weasels have finally run out of "celebrities" to follow around with cameras and pray they fuck up (never count VH1 out, though). On the downside, well, read this from NBC:

"The series will give viewers a glimpse into what makes Victoria so popular and admired as one of the most glamorous women in the world," said NBC Entertainment President Kevin Reilly. "She makes news wherever she goes and our audience can now become insiders in this fascinating personal view of what being 'Posh' truly represents."

Christ, and to think I liked this guy for keeping The Office on the air. And there's more:

Said Victoria Beckham, "I am so excited to be making this show for NBC with [American Idol eee-vil mastermind] Simon Fuller. He has so much success around the world with his TV shows and the respect and trust of everybody he works with. This show is really something different, it's pushing the boundaries and I think it's going to surprise a lot of people."

Only if the eventual title for the show is Posh Spice Really CAN Wipe Her Own Ass, Vickie.
