You've heard of the Barbara Streisend (sp!) effect right?
Suing would have kept the story in the papers for even longer - instead by keeping a dignified silence on the issue the only fame Loos has is that a few people on the internet are discussing how she once did something with a pig - and if it wasn't for Sharon Osbourne would we even be doing that?
Lol, there was nothing dignified about the Beckhams silence on the matter. Why can't some people accept that he is not the lovely family man he's made out to be?
