9. Anna Kournikova
Even though she never managed to win a singles title in her time as a professional tennis player, Kournikova has never lacked her share of fans. Kournikova was in a relationship with fellow Russian Pavel Bure, an NHL ice hockey player. The two met in 1999 when Kournikova was still linked to Bure’s former Russian teammate Sergei Fedorov. Bure and Kournikova were reported to have been engaged in 2000 after a reporter took a photo of them together in a Florida restaurant where Bure supposedly asked Kournikova to marry him. As the story made headlines in Russia, where they were both heavily followed in the media as celebrities, Bure and Kournikova both denied any engagement.
Kournikova, 10 years younger than Bure, was 18 years old at the time. The following year, Kournikova and Fedorov were married in Moscow. Fedorov claimed he and Kournikova were married in 2001, and divorced in 2003. Kournikova’s representatives deny any marriage to Fedorov; however, Fedorov’s agent Pat Brisson claims that although he does not know when they got married, he knew “Fedorov was married”.
8. Irina Shayk
Irina Shayk, best known for her 2007 through 2013 appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She was the cover model for the 2011 issue. While the Russian beauty professes to have absolutely no interest in watching soccer, she nevertheless has taken a shining to at least one player: Real Madrid and Portugal midfielder Cristiano Ronaldo. The two have been dating since the spring of 2010 despite persistent rumors of Ronaldo’s infidelity and the fact that the only thing they have in common is their mutual love of Armani Exchange.
7. Brooklyn Decker
Despite being relatively new to the scene, Decker is one of the hottest American WAGs of the past five years. The 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl has been married to now-retired tennis pro Andy Roddick since 2009.
She modeled Victoria’s Secret’s 2010 swimsuit collection and made guest appearances on the Chuck, Ugly Betty, and Royal Pains television programs.
6. Kim Kardashian
Kardashian has become one of the most talked about people in America for reasons we still can’t put our finger on. One of the topics of conversation people usually speak on? Kim’s penchant for athletes. First there was Reggie Bush, who immediately after breaking up with her began to fulfill his potential with the Miami Dolphins. The whole Kris Humphries marriage was just weird, although to be fair it was never apparent if Humphries was actually awake at any point in their brief relationship.
5. Eva Longoria
Longoria is known for her roles as Isabella Braña on the CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless, and as Gabrielle Solis on the ABC television series Desperate Housewives. Longoria tied the knot with San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker in 2007, and the couple certainly seemed quite happy. What else would explain the bedazzled Parker jerseys she used to occasionally don at Spurs games? However, Parker snuck behind the Desperate Housewives actress’s back and cheated on her with a teammate’s wife. They divorced in 2010, but that didn’t cause Longoria to fall off the WAGon. In early September of 2012, she was spotted out in New York City with Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, whom she’s since split from.
4. Minka Kelly
This beautiful brunette is best known for her roles in the TV series: Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, and Charlie’s Angels. She is also known for her role in The Roommate. She appeared in the 2013 film The Butler, as Jackie Kennedy. Kelly parlayed her modest TV fame into a three-plus year (ferom May 2008 to August 2011) relationship with New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter, a man who has no shortage of appearances on this list.
3. Gisele Bundchen
The highest-paid model in the world, and one of the richest woman in the entertainment industry. Last year Gisele placed first on the Forbes top-earning models list. She married New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in 2009. She is not only the face of the modern fashion industry, but is also by far the most successful model in history. Gisele has made even more money in her career than her famous husband, with Forbes having estimated in 2011 that she has raked in over $250 million over the last 10 years.
2. Adriana Lima
One of the preeminent Victoria’s Secret Angels ever, the Brazilian-born Lima has had a wildly successful modeling career. She is married to Serbian basketball player Marko Jarić, with whom she has two daughters. Last year, she came in 4th on the Forbes top-earning models list, estimated to have earned $7.3 million in one year. She also told GQ in 2006 that she was to remain a virgin until she got married, which drove the Internet crazy.
1. Marilyn Monroe
Absolute bombshells attached to the best athletes in the world. Marilyn Monroe was pioneer of a movement that soon took over the entire world of sports. She was married with Joe DiMaggio, although her lasted a brief nine months, Monroe set the stage for the thousands of WAGs that would follow her. Her blend of fame, beauty, and unadulterated craziness are at a level the Lohans and Kardashians of the world can only dream of achieving.
