The latest Emporio Armani underwear ads show David Beckham in all his glory, but rumor has it the soccer star may have had some help filling out his tighty-whities. The “enhancement” buzz started shortly after a 100-foot tall image of David wearing the famous undies made its debut at Macy’s in San Francisco earlier this week, and some found David’s form too good to be true.
That’s when sleuths at the Daily Mail uncovered a photo of Becks on the beach sporting a similar look. The surfside shot, taken in 2006, features the L.A. Galaxy player in a white bikini with one notable difference from the Armani pics — the fabric appears less, um, inflated.
The paper offered a side-by-side comparison and speculated that the difference could be the result of digital manipulation, but a spokesperson for David denies the claim.
“There wasn't any enhancement to that said region,” the rep insisted.

‘Talent’ judge to blame for Paul and Heather union
With the dust finally settled from Paul McCartney and Heather Mills’ bitter divorce, Piers Morgan admits he was the man behind the mismatched love match in the first place. During an interview on the “Howard Stern Show,” the “America’s Got Talent” judge explained how it happened.
“Paul asked who she was after seeing her give a speech,” Piers revealed. “I introduced them.”Slideshow: Celebrity Sightings
That turned out to be a mistake he wished he could take back, as Piers had no clue she was, in his words, “a grasping, gold-digging little bimbo.” According to Piers, he “was fooled into thinking that she was a good person, (and) she ended up costing Paul $50 million.”
Gisele found Tom forgettable at first
When Gisele Bündchen first saw a picture of her beau-to-be Tom Brady, she made flirty remarks about him to the media. Some reports pegged her comments as an attempt to let the football player know she was interested in him, but, in an interview with GQ magazine, the supermodel said she didn’t even know who he was.
“Look, I’m Brazilian; I had never seen football before,” Gisele stated. As for why she told the Boston Herald that Tom was “definitely not too shabby, she said, “I’m freezing, and all I’m thinking is, ‘When can I go back to New York City?’ … I just wanted to get out of there, so I’m just gonna say what you say to get out of a conversation.”
Apparently, in addition to not being too shabby, Tom wasn’t very memorable. “If he had been any other guy, I would have said the same thing,” Gisele told GQ. “We met through a friend who knew us both for a long time. Believe me, I didn’t even remember (the picture of Tom).”
Dish on the fly
Now that Jessica Biel’s moved in with boyfriend Justin Timberlake, the pair realizes domestic life isn’t always easy. “Justin’s been a bachelor for a long time,” a friend told OK! magazine. Evidently that explains why Jessica and the “SexyBack” singer are fighting for their own space — refrigerator space, that is. “They’re both used to doing things their way and having specific things in the fridge. They’ve had to readjust where the beer, water and peanut butter go to make room for each other’s favorite foods.” … Kim Kardashian doesn’t like to keep the paparazzi waiting. According to Star magazine, the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star used that lame excuse to cut the line at an L.A. Starbucks recently. “Kim walked right to the front and started ordering,” an onlooker said. “She said she had to get in and out quickly because there were photographers waiting outside to take her picture, and she needed to rush back out.” Wouldn’t want the paps to catch her without the obligatory caramel macchiato in tow.
