Italy continues to shine as the WAG capital of the world
It seems that certain Italian television shows are a hotbed of WAG activity. Variety show Striscia la Notizia (‘Strip the News’) has given the world Elena Barolo, Melissa Satta and Giorgia Palmas, while Carabinieri (which seems to be the Italian version of The Bill) gave us the stupendously good looking Martina Colombari. Today’s WAG, Elisabetta Canalis is held in particularly high esteem, as she has had the honour of starring in both shows.
She has been romantically linked with Christian Vieri (who has also steamrollered Satta and Elena Santarelli), Didier Drogba and most recently Parma’s Brazilian striker Reginaldo.
Elisabetta has squeezed a high density of nude modelling and TV appearances into her 29 years, and she has also found time to carve a slightly rubbish film career. She ‘acted’ in Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo (which just fell outside of Oscar contention, I understand) and Virgin Territory, a film starring Tim Roth, Hayden Christensen and Mischa Barton. It came out in France under a different title last year, and it is still struggling to be released elsewhere.
