WAGS reality show cast photos, bios, who they’re dating

WAGS cast photo E!

E! revealed back in April that they were working on a new reality show titled WAGS, starring an acronym-inspired cast of Women And Girlfriends of Sports Stars. Today, the network officially announced the full cast, which includes seven women that I would have to describe (in this modern age of diverse beauty) as conventionally smoking hot.

The press release reads: “E! takes a wild ride into the world of some of today’s hottest professional athletes from the perspective of the women who stand by their side, otherwise known as WAGS (Wives and Girlfriends of Sports Stars).”

More from the release:

These WAGS are playing the most competitive sport out there: getting and keeping that pro-athlete man. As part of an elite, exclusive group, the WAGS are close friends who are bound together by a strict hierarchy, unspoken rules and plenty of drama – and those who have the coveted ring and a husband with a contract are the ones with all the power! As in sports, this game is all about getting that “W” and this pack knows how to play the field… Jump into the competitive, fast-paced, glamorous world of “WAGS” when the new series premieres on E! Tuesday, August 18th at 10:00pm ET/PT.

The WAGS life has plenty of perks, but the diamonds and mansions don’t come easy. These women are constantly strategizing and fine-tuning their playbooks to keep their place in the line-up among the other WAGS, and to maintain the high-profile celebrity lifestyle that comes along with that role. In this 8-episode series, E!’s WAGS are faced with tough decisions as players change teams, forcing some to decide whether or not to uproot their lives and move across the country. Additionally these women are constantly working to find ways to balance their own careers and interests with the demands of their partner’s sports schedules. And while one WAG is planning her magical wedding, another one’s fiancé is getting cold feet. E!’s WAGS are bonded together by long-time friendships, but rank has its privileges in this group and the competition to rise to the top and be “queen” of the WAGS brings plenty of drama.

The WAGS preview trailer:

Here are all of the cast members, along with a photo of each, the identities of their athlete beaus, some background info from E!, and a few excerpts from a recent Composure Magazine interview with Nicole, Natalie and Olivia:

WAGS Nicole Williams bikini photo


Which athlete is Nicole dating? Nicole has been dating Larry English of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for four years now, and she is ready for that ring!

Who is Nicole Williams? She is a gorgeous, successful working model who is always on the road traveling for jobs, having modeled for Old Navy, Gucci, La Senza, Macy’s and more – she was even tapped to appear in Robin Thicke’s “Treats” video. While she prides herself with having her own life, Nicole tries to keep Larry on a short leash as she struggles with the “jersey chasers” who follow these NFL players everywhere they go!

Nicole on her modeling career:

I’ve been modeling since the age of twelve. I signed with my first big agency NEXT at the age of sixteen. I then moved to New York and worked there for seven years signed with Major Models. From there I moved to LA where I signed with LA Models. I’ve traveled and worked internationally from Milan to Cape Town. It’s been a real humbling feeling being able to travel the world and do what I love. I’ve done campaigns such as Bebe Sport, Levi’s, Nike, Avon, La Senza, Caché, Macy’s, Kohls, and Salon Grafix just to name a few. You also might have seen me in commercials for Old Navy, Marshalls, Nissan, and Mazda.


WAGS Sasha Gates bikini


Which athlete is Sasha dating? Sasha is married to 5-time All Pro tight end Antonio Gates of the San Diego Chargers. She and Antonio have a little girl with another one on the way. (UPDATE – Sasha gave birth to her and Antnio’s son Aven on June 21! Click the link for a photo and more info!)

Who is Sasha Gates? Her maiden name is Sasha Dindayal, and under that name Sasha was a model who appeared in several music videos. These days Sasha is looking to start her own music career and has a line of cute football clothes for kids called Wittle Ones with best friend/business partner/WAGS co-star Autumn Aijrotutu.

Just finished my concert! Lol time to after party lololol

A photo posted by Autumn Ajirotutu (@autumn_ajirotutu) on



Which athlete is Autumn dating? Autumn is married to Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver and special teams player Seyi Ajirotutu, and the two have twin daughters together.

Who is Autumn Ajirotutu? From a FabWAGS.com profile done in November of 2013:

Autumn Noelle Pierce was born on November 7, 1988, in Castro Valley, California. She is the second daughter of Paul and Flo Pierce. She has an older sister, Myah Underwood, and a darling little nephew, Kingston. Growing up, her life was dedicated to school, sports, helping others, traveling to visit relatives in various states, vacationing in Hawaii, dancing, and having fun. As described on ourwedding.com. Autumn graduated from San Leandro High, Class of 2006. She entered Fresno State University in January 2007. All throughout her college experience, Autumn worked very hard to maintain her studies and hold down a job. She graduated in 2010 with a B A in Communication Studies. She plans to return to obtain her Master’s.


WAGS Barbie Blank bikini


Which athlete is Barbie dating? Barbie is engaged to former professional hockey player Sheldon Souray, who just announced his retirement from the NHL last month after 13 seasons as a defenseman for the New Jersey Devils, Montreal Canadiens, Edmonton Oilers, Dallas Stars, and Anaheim Ducks. The two are currently planning their January 2016 wedding in Cabo!

Who is Barbie Blank? Barbie is a former WWE Diva known as “Kelly Kelly,” who made her debut at only 19 years old. She performed from 2006-2012, which included being the Diva’s Champion in 2011. As a former athlete herself, she’s not a “typical” WAG, but, with the pending wedding, Barbie is very excited to move up the hierarchy and legitimize her WAG status.

WAGS Ashley North bikini


Which athlete is Ashley dating? Ashley has been with Washington Redskins free safety Dashon Goldson for 11 years, and the two share a daughter named Charly. The two have been engaged for a year (?!?) but Ashley can’t seem to get Dashon to commit to a wedding date. (Cue ref whistle and a penalty flag for delay of game!)

Who is Ashley North? Ashley North is a WAGS descendant (her father was a Major League Baseball player who played for the San Francisco Giants, Oakland A’s and Chicago Cubs), who gets a lot of great advice from her dad on how to navigate this competitive world. Amusingly, he gave her an emphatic warning not to date athletes — advice she of course ignored! Outside of her “role” as a WAG and mother, Ashley is trying to balance her own career as a celebrity stylist whose clients have included Kevin Hart, Justin Bieber, and J Cole, among others.

WAGS Natalie Halcro bikini


Which athlete is Natalie dating? Natalie’s boyfriend is NFL linebacker Shaun Phillips, who has played for the Denver Broncos, Tennessee Titans, and Indianapolis Colts. They have been together for two-and-a-half years, and while Shaun is looking to take things to the next level, Natalie is very independent, and has to figure out how to balance this relationship with her own career plans–especially now that she has reached “Instafame” with a million Instagram followers!

Who is Natalie Halcro? Natalie is best friends with cousin and WAGS co-star Olivia Pierson (below), and and the two of them launched a beauty and fashion blog together that proved to be so successful, they are taking it to the next level – but mixing family and business is always a challenge!

Natalie on her reaction to being asked to be on WAGS:

I was a little hesitant at first. No one would believe me now but I’m actually a very private and shy person naturally. Plus, the idea that the show focuses on women just because their spouses/boyfriends are famous wasn’t easy for me. But after giving it some thought, I realized it actually does showcase some strong and diverse women. It’s also like the greatest home movie ever. That’s on E!


WAGS Olivia Pierson


Which athlete is Olivia dating? Olivia is the only WAGS cast member who is currently single. Olivia has previously been linked to players from the Denver Broncos, San Diego Chargers and Los Angeles Clippers.

Who is Olivia Pierson? As mentioned above, Olivia has partnered with Natalie Halcro on fashion blog JeromeByNatLiv.com

Three words Olivia would use to describer herself:

Three words to describe myself would be: Goofy – I don’t take life too seriously. I’m very sarcastic, constantly joking around and I’m always looking to have a good time. Enjoy life! Sensitive – From the outside, people may think I’m tough and I sometimes get misunderstood, but I am probably one of the most sensitive girls around. When you get to know me you quickly see I’m a softy. Loyal – My horoscope sign is Leo, the loyal Lion and I defiantly hold to that trait. I’m a ride-or-die type of girl- when I love someone, I love them hard. No other man fazes me when I’m in a committed relationship.


WAGS premieres Tuesday, August 18th at 10/9c on E!
