Melanie Slade: No Ferrari, No Cry

Theo Walcott and Melanie Slade about 100 years agoUtter shock and disbelief, Kickettes. That’s where we’re at right now. In summary, a WAG rejected a free gift because it was too vulgar. Isn’t that illegal?

So here’s the story:

Everyone’s favourite “down to earth non-WAG”, Melanie Slade,  (girlfriend to Arsenal’s Theo Walcott), recently turned down Theo’s birthday gift offer of a £140,000 Ferrari California. She’s sticking with her trusty white VW Beetle, also a gift from Walcott in more frugal times/moods.

Apparently Ms. Slade, who is currently studying Physiotherapy at university in London, thought the Ferrari was a bit too ‘flash’ for her tastes, and could potentially be an embarrassment in front of her student friends.

Climbing up Kilimanjaro for charity and eschewing Fake Bake was enough of a statement. (Of course the lads’ mags pics kind of reversed the statement.)

Now, we’re just confused. Are you a WAG-WAG, or an anti-WAG or just a semi-WAG? Why must our brains be taxed so?

    Nice to see all the orange faced, overly made up, wannabe football sperm dumpsters congregating on one site.

    Congratulations on behaving like the ridiculously shallow cunts the rest of society expects you to be.

    This girl irratates me. Agree with Miss Estonia and Stiliani..if she really wanted to be ‘normal’ she should stop giving interviews and posing for lad magazines. It’s not that hard…you stop giving the press what they want and eventually they’ll go away. She’d actually be better off admitting that she’s a WAG and then do good things with that fame like charity work etc. and be the one WAG that actually is a good role model.

    What a hypocrite! She has a VW and isn't that too flashy already? She says she isn't a typical WAG but poses in a bikini for a mag anyway. She wants attention but she says she doesn't want it. Pathetic

  4. MissEstonia says:

    This just made me like her less…I think she's trying way too hard to be a "normal" girl. Well, darling, "normal" girls don't date multimillion euro footballers. So I think you should give that dream up. You can be a nice person without having to try so hard to be a WAG. Since when can't a WAG be educated? Just because one is a WAG doesn't mean she can't be smart at the same time as being stylish and ridiculously well-wheeled. Ugh, seriously. Give me the car and get off your self-righteous horse.

    • MissEstonia says:

      Oops, I meant to say "try so hard NOT to be a WAG". Sorry.

    • Stiliani says:

      I agree 100%. If she wants to lead a normal, private life, why is she always giving interviews? Posing in mags? I don’t live in Europe, so I’m not sure, but aren’t there wags who actually do keep their lives more private and don’t discuss details of their relationships like if they returned a gift from their boyfriend? Does Vidic’s wife talk to the press a lot? Does Giggsy’s wife? There are some girls who seem classier and seem to try less hard than Melanie. She seems like a big fake to me. (Again, i don’t see the press from over there, but there must be some wags who are actually “normal”).

    girls, com’on! she seems like such a nice girl. i salut her for being able to juggle the WAG-title AND 4 A-levels, then Uni. she’s incredible. besides, it takes real commitment to one’s academic future to turn down something like a Ferrari. i wonder what keeps her grounded..

    • HJ says:

      oops! I just followed the links and WTF?? That’s girl’s a hypocrite! I mean seriously, posing in magazines? saying ‘I don’t ever want to know them’ about your fellow WAGs? yeah, i went there. FELLOW WAGs!

  6. bubbly_cheryl says:

    she disgusts me, if your bf is that nice to buy you a lovely gift like that, and you take it back- what is that saying to him, i wish i had a bf who could do that for me…

  7. aps says:

    I don’t like them together and I don’t like her. She seems weird and trying too hard. On that note…I’ll take the ferrari :D

  8. nisa says:

    oh please. she give it back because she prefers rolls royce or something more expensive.

  9. Boston Red says:

    I thought we were getting somewhere with the lad's mag pics and the lame endorsements. She's a failure to all of WAGdom.

  10. DSS says:

    I know that she is young and perky…but this photo makes her look as though she had her boobs done. That being said I love these 2 together

  11. HiL says:

    Hope Theo isn’t offended :P definitely an anti-WAG act

  12. Mel says:

    totally random, but she looks like a wax figure in the picture. That would make Theo a tourist lined up to take a photo, and then on to the next wax figure at Madame Toussard’s :D

  13. Kleon says:

    I'll do the same as her… Ferraris and university doesn't fit Ferraris are made for.. supe cool parties.

    Great Mel!

  14. carly says:

    Let's face it, a Ferrari is just not very practical whilst a Beetle is practical and cute. Good for her, I would do exactly the same.

  15. Merel says:

    Her VW Beetle is already too expensive for most students.

    Anyway, I can see why she turned it down. Why can't most footballers just not go for a classy, sporty BMW, VW or Audi?

    Ferrari sucks. It's too much horsepower for the average driver anyway.
