Here's What's Been Going On In The Sports Entertainment World!
September 6, 2015
WAGS is a new reality show on the E! network that documents the lives of profesional athletes' spouses. WAGS stands for 'Wives and Girlfriends of Professional Sports Stars' but there are fiancées and a cousin of a cast member included in. 3 episodes have aired and there will be 5 more this season. The show aired on August 18, 2015 and I've been tuned in. So far, it has been a lot less ratchet than Basketball Wives as the ladies do try to remain classy out of respect for their husband/significant other but in the show you do see arguments and cattyness sometimes. What I like about this show is that it takes a more personal look into the relationships between the women and the athletes. You get to see eveything from relationship issues, home life, the ladies supporting their men at games, getting together with the other women, and even their professional lives doing their own thing. It seems like a fun show thus far.
The cast members include:
Ashley North- celebrity stylist, daughter of former MLB player, and the fiancée of Washington Redskins safety Dashon Goldson. Ashley and Dashon have a daughter together.
Autumn Ajirotutu- college sweetheart and wife of NFL free agent Seyi Ajirotutu. The couple has twin daughters.
Barbie Blank- former WWE wrestler and model who is engaged to hockey star Sheldon Souray, a defenseman for the Anaheim Ducks.
Natalie Halcro- makeup artist, former model, and girlfriend of NFL player Shaun Phillips of the Indianapolis Colts.
Nicole Williams- professional model and girlfriend of Larry English, DE for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Olivia Pierson- cousin/ business partner of Natalie Halcro and former arch nemesis of Kim Kardashian. Olivia has been linked to dating Ray J and different professional athletes in the past.
Sasha Gates- business partner of Autumn Ajirotutu, aspiring singer, former model, and wife of San Diego Chargers' Antonio Gates. The couple has a son and daughter together.
If you want to watch WAGS, it airs Tuesdays at 10pm on E!
Teyana Taylor & Iman Shumpert Announce Pregnancy on IG
Teyana is 6 months pregnant and due January 16, 2016. The couple is expecting a girl and accroding to Iman, she will be a "jr.". He announced that the baby girl's name will be Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. That's a first for me hearing a girl be a junior but I heard that it's nothing new. Whatever the case, congrats to the couple on the blessing!
The Westbrook Wedding
On August 29th, NBA star Russell Westbrook finally married Nina Earl, his college sweetheart. Put together by celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss, the ceremony and reception was filled with family, friends, and teammates. Known for his sense of style, Russel wore a Tom Ford tuxedo. His bride wore a Vera Wang dress and a Monique Lhullier dress. The icing on the cake was a surprise performance by Miguel later in the evening. Congrats to the lovely couple!
Ballers star John David Washington has been getting a lot of attention from the ladies. Everyone is quite surprised that this the the son of veteran actor Denzel Washington but its not hard to believe. John looks just like his mom with a little of his dad. The internet went crazy and it seemed as if he became the #MCE of a lot of ladies overnight.
