Posh hits back at critics for calling her gaunt and miserable

February 19, 2012 - London

Victoria Beckham has been called skinny, gaunt, downcast, malnourished and moody in the last few days, as she promotes her fashion line both in the US and the UK.

But the LA Galaxy star's wife has had enough of the cruel jibes since arriving back in Britain three days ago, and has lashed out at her critics.

"Look, if people want to say I'm f***ing miserable then so be it," the Mirror quoted her as saying.

"I'm really not. I have a lot on my plate. I'm not going to lie about it, I'm tired. I'm really tired but I'm also very happy with my life.

"I'm basically just like any woman who's working and has lots of children - it's tough," she said.

The truth is that she is yet to enjoy a night of undisturbed sleep since giving birth to her daughter Harper seven months ago.

"I'm not getting much sleep at all," reveals Victoria, who has been flitting between LA, London and New York due to her work as a fashion designer.

"Harper's not sleeping that great, and I've been taking Skype business calls throughout the night too because of the collections. I'm up with the baby as all mums are and I wouldn't have it any other way.

"There's not a team of people doing it for me.

"And then people want to say I look crap. Well, I'm a working mum, so give me a break.

The former Spice Girl has been working on her fashion line right after Harper's birth and has been busy with the launch of her collection.

"It's actually been crazy. I had Harper, I was working on the collection and I was straight back into it.

"I took a lot on board. I'm tired. You can't look your best all the time.

"The time difference has been a nightmare lately. I'm spending ludicrous amounts of time in my dressing gown on Skype talking to my team about the clothes," she said.

She is planning to take some time out now after she has debuted two new fashion collections to widespread critical acclaim.

"Well I'd like there to be a break but I very much doubt it's going to happen any time soon.

"When Harper sleeps that will be my break," she added.
