The five “Wives and Girlfriends” who will star in FOX8\’s highly anticipated new reality series, WAG Nation have been named.
We will see shoe designer Terry Biviano, fiancÃ©e of NRL Sydney Roosters player Anthony Minicello; event planner Lynette Bolton, wife of AFL Sydney Swans player Jude Bolton; fashion boutique owner Jackie Spong, fiancÃ©e of AFL Carlton Blues player Jarrad Waite; promotions manager Jana Peterson, long-term girlfriend of NRL Cronulla Sharks player John Williams; and flight attendant Chantelle Raleigh, girlfriend of NBL Gold Coast Blaze player Adam Gibson light up our TV’s later this year.
With production on the locally-made series kicking off last week, the 10-part reality series will follow the lives of the WAGS. From the highs and lows of supporting a professional sporting career and the daily pressures of maintaining a successful relationship, to the stress of managing their own careers, not to mention the demands of a hectic social life.
“We all know Australians are sports mad, but it seems they\’re just as â€˜WAG\’ crazy!Â That\’s why WAG Nation is so exciting for us at FOX8,” said Duane Hatherly, Group Channel Manager FOX8, ARENA & Bio.
“Our viewers will get a glimpse into the glamorous and not so glamorous parts of these women\’s very public lives, as well as a taste for the complex social order that rules partners, friends and career in the world of sporting wives and girlfriends,” he said.
WAG Nation will air exclusively on FOX8 in the second half of 2011 … are you keen to see the behind the scenes of our Aussie WAGS?
