Victoria Beckham: ‘I try really, really hard… I am trying to be the best wife’

This month has been full of rumors about the state of Victoria and David Beckham’s marriage. I honestly don’t think that David is doing the most to deny those rumors, but Victoria is. I go back and forth and Victoria, quite honestly – I think sometimes she gets the short end of the stick because she actually cares, she cares about her image, she cares about her marriage, she cares about keeping her family together. While she cares so much, David often seems somewhat disengaged from the marriage. So do we dislike Posh for caring? For not giving up? I don’t know. I do know that she continues to do the most to present this happy-family image. Posh has been in New York this week, and she gave a speech at the Forbes Women’s Summit on Tuesday. Victoria Beckham celebrated her marriage to David Beckham in the wake of reports that the couple was on the road to separation. The fashion designer, 44, who shares four children with the soccer star, 43, spoke openly about how she balanced her personal and professional life.”I try really, really hard. I try hardest to be the best mother,” Victoria said at the Forbes Women’s Summit in New York City on Tuesday, according to Hello!. “I am trying to be the best wife and the best professional. When I get home I try to put the phone down and spend time with the children and spend time with David,” she continued.”I have the support of an incredible husband. We really are equal with everything we do at home with the children,” Victoria said. “When I’m away he’s the one doing the school run and doing the cooking.””When I take Harper to school I tell her, ‘Harper you’re a girl and you can do anything.’ She’s a strong woman. She wants to be an inventor. She’s a strong smart woman. A little woman.”This just made me sort of sad, because I believe her: I believe that she tries really, really hard. She tries to be a great mom, a great wife, a great designer and a great businesswoman. And then she’s criticized for trying to hard, for caring so much, for striving to be better. We can’t win as women, remember. We have to be all things to all people all the time, and when we try to do that, we’re criticized for A) not being perfect enough and B) trying to be perfect. And where’s David in all of this? He just jets off and hangs out with his bros.Photos courtesy of WENN.Celebitchy
