£9000 goodie bags for WAGs to attend cocktail party

Posted June 21, 2010 By World Cup Wags

WAGS have all the luck and it seems all the lifestyle that South Africa has to offer..

According to the Daily Mail England’s World Cup WAGs have been branded ‘disgusting’ after it emerged they will each receive £9,000-worth of jewellery, clothes and holidays – in exchange for attending a cocktail party in poverty-hit South Africa.

WAGs will be WAGs though and did we really think they would turn their heads to such large sums of money and a good cocktail party to boot??

The cocktail party is being hosted by South African cosmetics giant Optiphi who said that four WAGS will attend its promotional cocktail party in Pretoria on Friday grabbing the £9000 party bag in the process.

The company will give each WAG £9,000-worth of jewellery, dresses, shoes, beauty products and holidays.
Sex And The City dress designer Eric Way will be hosting a fashion show at the event.

Among the the WAGS expected to attend are the three players’ partners staying in Sun City – Emily Heskey’s fiancee Chantelle Tagoe, 27, Michael Carrick’s wife Lisa, 29, and Matthew Upson’s girlfriend Ellie Darby, 26.

Other WAGS now in South Africa include Glen Johnson’s wife Laura, with Peter Crouch’s girlfriend Abbey Clancy, 24.

TV’s WAGS expert Lizzie Cundy, a friend of the England partners and a World Cup reporter for GMTV, Sky News and Five News, confirmed: ‘It’s true – Optiphi is giving four girls almost £10,000 of goodies each.
‘It contains bespoke jewellery, designer dresses and even a safari holiday if they want to come back to South Africa.’

An Optiphi spokeswoman said: ‘Eric Way and four of the England wives and girlfriends will be visiting us, having a pampering session and finishing the day with a cocktail evening with fashion designers.
‘We want to show the hospitality of South Africa towards England.

‘So each England players’ partner will receive goody bags with items to the value of 100,000 Rand (£9,000) at our cocktail evening.

‘They will each receive products from the sponsors including designer clothing, shoes, a safari and skincare products.

‘Four England players’ partners will receive the gifts, although we have not finalised which partners will receive them as yet.

‘We’re hosting a charity event and auction, will funds raised going to the Hear For Life 94.7 charity, which helps deaf children receive cochlear implants to regain hearing.

The WAGs are sneaking in despite Capello’s ban

Posted June 20, 2010 By World Cup Wags

Does Capello have any ounce of gravitas with his rules and regulations he has set during the World Cup?

What with the terrible display against Algeria a few days ago it now also seems that the WAGs have started making their way into the camp – against his express rules.

Glen Johnson’s wife Laura was in the crowd at Green Point Stadium in Cape Town two nights ago together with their baby, although both looked bored by the end of the match.

Glen Johnson’s wife is not the first WAG to sneak into South Africa under the nose of the strict England manager Fabio. Emil Heskey’s girlfriend Chantelle Tagoe didn’t waste time getting to South Africa before the tournament had even began, flying with Heskey’s parents.

Word in the Wag world is that even the ladies who have listened to Capello are now thinking about traveling out to support their footballing loved ones.

Coleen Rooney held a backyard barbeque last weekend when England drew 1-1 with USA and who then hinted she might be thinking of traveling out sooner rather than later.

It might be just the thing Wayne needs to focus his mind and start playing as we all know he can. After his snappy remarks back at fans following the draw with Algeria it seems that Fabio’s ban on WAGS, booze and video games might not be to the benefit that he planned them for.

John Terry’s wife Toni Poole has said she plans to fly out if England reach the quarter-finals, and captain Steven Gerrard’s wife Alex Curran will attend the semi-finals if England are playing.

Peter Crouch’s partner Abbey Clancy has said she will travel if the team contest the final.

World Cup Wags say bring on the WAGs.. It’s obviously what the boys need..
