Victoria Beckham Says She's 'Just a Normal Girl'

Victoria Beckham says that she's "just a normal girl from London" who happens to be living with soccer star husband David and their three young boys.

But don't take her word for it, she wants you to tune in to her a one-hour NBC special, "Victoria Beckham: Coming to America," airing July 16 at 8 p.m.

The special follows Victoria Beckham as she prepares to move from Europe to the United States for her husband's July 21 debut with the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer.

"It's funny. People really get to see what I'm really like. I have quite a dry sense of humor, which I hope is going to translate to Americans," Beckham says. "I'm incredibly blessed and I wanted to show that to everybody."

She calls herself "a working mum" who is focused on developing her signature line of clothing, sunglasses and perfume. And says her family was "so excited" about relocating that her boys "actually think they're moving to Disneyland."

The "normal" family will live do in a reported $22 million, 13,000-square foot villa in Beverly Hills, where neighbors include Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes (photosKatie Holmes photos).

But you don't see their children. "This isn't a reality show, it's a documentary about me. Anything we do professionally, we try to keep the children out of it. We don't sort of traipse them up and down the red carpet," she says.

Initially, NBC had announced a six-episode series in February that would air during the summer. However, Beckham's shooting time was limited by her spending time in Europe as her husband wound down his playing career there.

So NBC decided it had enough footage to air a one-hour special. Among the executive producers is "American Idol" creator Simon Fuller, who managed the Spice Girls pop group that launched Victoria Beckham to fame.

If ratings for the special are good, it's possible she could be offered more television work.

"I wouldn't say I'm going to be the next TV star," she said. "We'll see what people make of this."
