Posh Spice Book Club to Be Hot Mess (Of The D'Urbervilles)

Victoria Beckham is starting up a book club with her pals Katie Holmes and Jennifer Lopez, and they're not going to be reading the usual book club lady fare (the usual book club lady fare = Anita Shreve novels, anything with 'Love' in the title, anything in which a child dies). No, Victoria apparently wants to take things in a more Oprah-style direction: "Books that Victoria wants to talk about include Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Emma and Sense and Sensibility, as well as tomes by literary giants Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy." Ha, so dumb and pretentious! Or is it? See, Victoria is the only one of those ladies who went to college at all ("Laine Arts Theatre College," but still!) Maybe Victoria is top-secretly quite intelligent. Maybe Victoria is planning to help Katie Holmes escape Tom Cruise's villainous control by slyly underlining the feminist themes in Dombey and Sons! Or, you know, not.
