WAGs… A lot of people think they are just with their men for the glory and money that they provide but more increasingly it seems that normal everyday women are trying to emulate these Wives and Girlfriends and are picking their men for all the wrong reasons..
OK! associate editor Phil Gould explained that ordinary women are increasingly becoming obsessed with becoming an WAG.
“I think it’s their glamorous lifestyles – all the girls who read OK magazine aspire to be a WAG and have their lifestyle really,” he said.
Helping women in this new age pursuit of the perfect fame and money giving husband, OK magazine has launched a Celebspotter app, which lets users find out where the rich and famous have been hanging out in their local area, with the hope that women can start to frequent the same areas as their idols (and maybe hook up with similar men in the process).
However, Lizzie Cundy, who is married to ex-Chelsea player Jason, explained that it is important for women to be true to themselves when choosing a partner.
“I really think you should be with somebody for the right reasons, you have got to. Don’t just be with someone because they are a footballer,” she said.
Mrs Cundy added that if you meet a footballer and really like him then that is great, but not to go looking for a footballer to pair off with just for the sake of it.
World Cup Wags would love to have the WAG lifestyle but unless there is an iPhone app that tells us all where an when we need to be, orders the stretch limo (complete with champers) we’ll just stick to drinking down the local for the time being..
So, do you want to be like a WAG? Really??

ENGLAND’S Wags, left in tears on the terraces following Englands exit from the World Cup have returned home.
Former One Show presenter had turned up to cheer on her boyfriend Frank Lampard in the match in South Africa but left with that sinking feeling of a brewing England argument between Fabio, the players and the fans..
Christine joined for the crunch game against Germany by John Terry’s wife Toni Poole and Ellie Darby, girlfriend of defender Matthew Upson but the Wags’ support failed to lift the England players, who crashed out 4-1 to their arch rivals Germany. Similarly, Joe Cole’s wife Carly probably hoped her break could have lasted a little longer than just a few days in the country.
John Terry’s wife Toni, Matthew Upson’s girlfriend Ellie Darby and Glen Johnson’s wife Laura were all seen heading back yesterday.
The WAGs were partially blamed for England’s poor showing at the 2006 World Cup, which led to Capello ‘requesting’ that they stay away from the team during the opening games but there’s sure to be an inquisition as to whether or not the WAGS would have helped the team if they turned up in force.
But, It’s not just the WAGs though with their heads in their hands. Teacher Thomas Jones, from Preston, Lancashire, who left after 80 minutes from watching the game on the big screen in Manchester, said the England players should “hang their heads in shame”.
The 28-year-old added: “They think they are world class players but their performances don’t justify their massive salaries. I am embarrassed to be English today.”

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..

Yes, it’s happened. The World Cup has kicked off and Fabio Capellos ban on the WAGS seems to have worked – or has it?
Most of the WAGS have obeyed England manager Fabio Capello’s order to stay at home while their other halves take on the world through various paid deals. But no one seriously expects them to keep a low profile – do you??.
Our amazing WAGS have got more bling than the A-Teams Mr T, better tans than the leathery Judith Chalmers – and unless you’re on Mars – they’re going to be as hard to dodge as a penalty shootout with Germany.
But before Wags were Wags what were they and would you have paid any attention to them at all?
Her bloke, THE MR ROONEY, is pretty nifty on the park and our Coleen is pitch-perfect in the fashion stakes – or there abouts. But back in 2003 she was just a dowdy schoolgirl… more Grunge Hill than Grange Hill.
Now our Victoria is an international style icon with a range of designer gear including her own smell and jeans that make any arse look good. But long ago back in 1992, Beckham’s missus was happy to be seen in a T-shirt and jeans. And a lovely dimpled smile. We can’t imagine VB ever turn back the sands of time to be seen like that again…
From sculpted, perfect flowing locks to haute couture, not a piece of her is out of place. But nine years ago, England and Liverpool’s captain Stevie G’s other half looked more natural …and showed more cheek than chic. How times change.
Legs up to her lovely armpits (or her fella’s kneecaps). But before she met Peter Crouch, Super Wag Abbey preferred boyish vest-tops with a very odd taste in Boy Scout woggles. Abbey’s been turned around more than anyone in turns of WAGS and we love her..
Yes, she was Miss England back in 2004 and fiancé Jamie O’Hara is her fourth footballer. Her style has improved just slightly, but apparently not her IQ. In a TV test she said a statue of Churchill was Barack Obama – It was a black and white TV though with bad signal, honest…

Its always tough (really?) being a WAG but this year has been more than difficult following Ashley Cole’s cheating and the John Terry/Wayne Bridge story.
That’s why in a recent OK Magazine interview Alex Curran slammed rumours around Liverpool that her marriage to Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard was on the rocks.
Recently snapped without her wedding ring, Alex Curran dismissed speculation of marriage trouble and put it down to forgetfulness.
Talking to OK Magazine, Curran said “There have been loads of rumours going around Liverpool saying that me and Steven have split up, that he’s moved to a hotel and ridiculous things like that,” she announced.
“I’d like to set the record straight. We have never been happier. I wouldn’t mind [the rumours] but we don’t even argue.”
Alex also added to the interview saying: “He (Steven Gerrard) always plans dinner and if I’ve been out sometimes with the girls and I’m a little hungover he’ll get up with the children for me. He’s really thoughtful like that.”
What do you think? Are Alex and Steven the perfect married footballing couple? Leave your comments below…
