Beckham's Reality TV Show Maybe Scrapped

The fly-on-the-wall TV programme following the everyday lives of Posh and Becks could be scrapped before an episode is shown.

The much-hyped reality show is due to be broadcast on US channel NBC in the summer, to coincide with David's mega-money transfer from Real Madrid to Los Angeles Galaxy football club.

An insider said the show is likely to be pulled because none of the Beckhams' US celebrity buddies would appear in it.

'So far, all that's been filmed is Victoria house-hunting and her quest to find schools for the kids, which hardly makes scintillating viewing,' the source said.

'David and Victoria are not well known out there and they have not yet been able to convince any of their celebrity friends to come on.'

Reports that the Beckhams were paid £10million for the show were wrong, the source added, saying they received the much more modest sum of £300,000.

The show's executive producer is Victoria's manager, Simon Fuller.

Posh has previously said of him: 'He has so much success around the world with his TV shows and the respect and the trust of everybody he works with.'

I can not say I am surprised considering even David is reported not to be in the show. It would be a great shame if they could not get this to work.

On the one hand, I'd really like to see the show! On the other hand, it seems like reality show = divorce. :( I don't want that!!
