So, we hate ourselves for even writing about this, but since we can’t bring ourselves to talk about what happened to the lovely Becks and his rotten knee, we’re going there.
A new reality TV show, called, I Want to be a WAG, is being put together, with a “mystery” footballer agreeing to take part. The baller will date 20 wannabe WAGs before choosing a winner. And then he will propose to them.
As in proposing marriage.
We know, we know. What fake ass footy player have they got lined up for this sham of a show? We can guarantee it ain’t a premier leaguer. Where did they find this dude? Playing in the Seniors’ Sunday League? Who else would agree to do it?
Hang on, it gets better. The wannabes will be mentored by an established WAG. She will guide them in the ways of digging for gold, applying fake tanner and showing them which direction they should be looking on the pitch when their man is playing. Who’s being lined up to mentor? Danielle Lloyd, Nicole T and Suzi Walker.
Hmm. Aren’t true WAGs born, not bred? Or at the very least, self-taught?
A spokesperson for the show (being produced by North One for MTV in the UK) said: “The footballer is very famous and is a real catch. He is dying to meet a beautiful, sexy woman to be his perfect wife. He won’t be revealed until the day before filming starts. He is looking for the next Victoria Beckham or Coleen McLoughlin. After just eight weeks he will propose to one lucky girl.“
Gazza? Is it you?
Any wannabes out there that are “beautiful, willing to learn, and have a lot of personality” (their words, not ours), can apply. We won’t judge Kickettes. Not much, anyway.
