WAG Tag Watch: Christine Bleakley

Christine Bleakley joined a shortlist of footballers’ partners who reject their WAG titles by claiming to be “fiercely independent” in an interview with The Mail on Sunday’s Live Magazine. If you’ve not read the whole thing, allow us to sum it up.

- Frank Lampard’s fiancée says she takes pride in providing for herself, something that her mum instilled in her when she was young. Bless.

- Then she added, “I might be the girlfriend of a footballer, but I’ve got my own career outside of that.” Remember, Christine got axed from ITV1′s Daybreak last year, so some could technically argue otherwise. Then again, she eventually accepted an offer to co-present Dancing on Ice, and did so to less than stellar ratings and reviews in her first season.

- Before she met Lampsy, Bleakley said she always got recognised, but only by people in the UK. Now that her relationship with the high profile Chelsea midfielder is out in the global domain, however, she’s “grown used to being recognised all over the world.”

- Lastly, she said that the couple’s fame “only becomes annoying when I’m out with Frank and his two little girls. We’re in the public eye but they didn’t ask to be.”

Tut, tut, Christine. Your mates already know you’re a working girl, while the general population already knows how much your engagement ring is reportedly worth. To justify your career by announcing you don’t want to be called a WAG – only to then turn around and say a lot of your notoriety is thanks to your relationship status is a step too far up the righteous ladder.

Plus slagging off the WAG tag is so 2008. So, there.

Kickettes, where do you stand on the WAG branding issue?

    Christine Bleakley is aging horribly, she does not have natural looks whatsoever and sorry to say, but lamps could have done a lot better then this one.
    Her face, neck and hands are full of muscular veins and lines, much unlike lamps who is aging really nicely.
    That woman looks no less then 40 years old!

    It sounds like she wants to have her cake and eat it, too. She's obviously not going to say that she loves the attention from being Lampard's fiancee, but it doesn't seem like she's rejecting the publicity/opportunities arising from her association with a high-profile footballer, either.

    That being said, she's very pretty.

    If she's not into the WAG title, she just shouldn't talk about it, but this made it seem like she brought it up in a kind of "woe is me" way. If she wants to be known for her work, that's what she should focus on, and decline to answer questions about her relationship.

    She is the queen of passive-aggressive.

    She may reject the wag tag but there is no lie it will probably help her in her career. I think for any wag in a "public spotlight" job its the same. She may have started there herself, but the attention she receives because of the footballer will, more than likely, either accelerate the fame or help her to get better jobs. Sara was already a sports reported but is much more high profile since Iker. Irina was already a model but is more well known due to Cristiano. Unless they are like Shakira who was already at the top of her game, it will be the same.

  9. Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am inspired! Very useful info specifically the closing phase :) I care for such information much. I used to be seeking this particular information for a long time. Thanks and best of luck.
