Good riddance? The WAGs, shorthand for the wives and girlfriends of England's World Cup soccer team, will be much less conspicuous during the World Cup in South Africa. The WAGs have long been considered their own sideshow, but this time things will be different. For one, the Queen Bee, Victoria Beckham will most probably stay away from the spotlight since her husband, David, is injured. Wayne Rooney's wife, Colleen, will be tending to their child at home and Cheryl Cole is in the midst of a separation from her husband Ashley Cole. England's manager Fabio Capello had not-so-privately compared the WAGs presence at the 2006 World Cup in Germany to a "virus." This year the ladies will be revamping their image to reflect their charitable pursuits. In the BBC reality series, WAGs, Kids and World Cup Dreams, five of them worked with orphans and AIDS victims. "People expected us to walk around in 6-inch heels all the time," said Chantelle Tagoe, fiancee of striker Emile Heskey. "But everybody I met doing the show was really down to earth. I don't know why we all have such a bad image." The women, known for their lavish clothing expenditures, will also scale back on the bling, in accordance with the economic climate.
