There's a New Posh and Becks in Town

Not seeing the resemblance between Posh and Kate. Not Holmes, silly, Beckinsale, Posh's brand spanking new BFF.

Oh, you didn't know chic spicy was on the prowl for a suitable "joined at the hip" replacement? Even before Mrs. Cruise set her sights on New York, a tiff over body art may have driven the formerly inseparable duo apart.

Why is it every time Mrs. Beckham hangs out with a gal pal, the press has to brand them twins? It's like a knee jerk reaction, an automatic "Oh, they're both wearing black cocktail dresses, so suddenly no one can tell them apart" way of thinking.

I've stumbled across my share of "separated at births," but Beckinsale and Posh? Not a chance. Desperate for news much? On the other hand, it's a newly teamed Posh and Becks, so the conjecture may be a smidgen newsworthy.

For what it's worth, here are some real dead ringers.
