It used to be that, to know anything about sports WAGs, you had to depend on celebrity gossip rags and internet message boards. However, in the age of social media, you don’t always have to resort to snooping. Lot’s of hot player wives and girlfriends put all their laundry—clean and dirty—out there for everybody to see. The result? An unprecedented look into the private (love) lives of athletes…and a lot of really hot pictures.
So today we give you 12 hot sports WAGs you should be following on Twitter. And yes, all of the pics come from their feeds. Check ’em out.
Spanish soccer player Gerard Pique's girlfriend uses Twitter as a promotional device (did you know she's got a new song with Pit Bull?) rather than as a way of expressing her deepest thoughts. So you won't find any hilarious bilingual rants or slips of the e-tonge on this feed. However, you will get a glimpse into her personal life—a pic of Gerard playing ball here, a shot of her hanging out in the South of France there. And it's still Shakira, who is gorgeous. So she's worth following.
After her divorce from two-timing hubby Tony Parker, we had to go two whole years without Eva Longoria being an official sports WAG. But now she's dating the much younger (by 12 years) New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. Of course, Eva is a classy cougar, so she won't be tweeting any scandalous pics. But even at age 37 she's still super cute, and she keeps it real—which is to say, she says stuff she actually thinks. (I don't really care what she thinks, but I respect that she thinks it.)
11. Eva Longoria
The Sacramento Kings' Tyreke Evans is dating Ashley Logan, or anyway, she recently had his kid. So who is Ashley Logan? She's a hip hop model, which means her Twitter feed has lots of pics of her in thongs and sneakers. Check it out if you like that sort of thing.

Super hot model Elaine Alden started dating Landry Fields when he was on the New York Knicks. Will the relationship survive his trade to the dreadful Toronto Raptors? Only time will tell. In the meantime, check out Elaine's Twitter feed. She'll let you know whenever she has a new sexy photo spread in a fashion mag...of course, she'll also let you know when she's cooking bacon. (You gotta take the good with the bad.)

Cecilia is the current squeeze of Argentine tennis player Juan Martin del Potro. How long will they last? Who knows. But following her on Twitter is a smart move. Sure, it's entirely in Spanish, and I don't speak Spanish because for some reason I thought it would be cool to take French in high school. But you don't need to speak a lick of Spanish to understand the point of the photos she posts (like this one). ¡Ay carumba!
8. Cecilia de Liberti
I wonder if Carmelo Anthony calls his wife La La, or if he uses her real name, Alani? Regardless, he is one lucky man, getting to come home after a long road trip to this DJ/TV personality. As for her Twitter feed, unfortunately she mostly tweets fashion and beauty tips, which I assume most of you reading this are not interested in. However, there are also plenty of pictures of Mrs. Carmelo. So there's the silver lining.
7. La La Vasquez
The wife of English soccer player Peter Crouch, Abbey Clancy is a lingerie model. And in my experience, it is always worthwhile to follow lingerie models on Twitter, because every once in a while they tweet pics like this. Feel free to disagree, though.
6. Abbey Clancy
Zuleyka Rivera is Miss Universe 2006, and the wife Timberwolves guard JJ Barea. (No, I'm not kidding. JJ Barea.) If you follow her on Twitter, you'll have to put up with a lot of tweets and pics of her kid. But you'll also be treated to the occasional photo of her and her hot friends in bikinis, or her in spandex workout clothes putting together IKEA furniture. So that's fun.
5. Zuleyka Rivera
WWE Diva Kelly Kelly's real name is Barbara Jean Blank, supposedly, but to me that sounds just as fake. In any case, she's dating NHL defenseman Sheldon Souray. If you follow her on Twitter, you'll have to put up with an awful lot of emoticons and cutesy spelling, but it'll be worth it when the model/actress/pro wrestler tweets pics like this.
4. Kelly Kelly
Amanda McCarthy is married to A's pitcher Brandon McCarthy. That's right, the guy who recently had brain surgery after getting beaned by a line drive. And while she is ridiculously hot (she made #28 on our list of hottest baseball WAGs of 2012), she is the rare Twitter WAG who is worth following for her personality. She and her hubby both like to keep it real with social media, tweeting candid little looks at their life together. So if you want to hear a cool chick talk about what it's really like to be a baseball wife, follow Mrs. McCarthy.
3. Amanda McCarthy
When Rays third baseman Evan Longoria started dating Playboy Playmate Jaime Edmonson, I didn't really think it would last. But judging by her Twitter posts she might be "the one," because she's very involved in Evan's baseball life.
Of course, I don't really need to make a case for why you should follow a Playboy Bunny, do I? That's kind of self-explanatory.
2. Jaime Edmonson
Handle:@BrittanyBingerGrady Sizemore is the most breakable man in baseball. The guy played 106 games in 2009, 33 games in 2010, 71 games in 2011, and 0 games in 2012. However, at least he gets to come home at the end of a long day of rehab to his scorching hot fiance, Brittany Binger.
Actually, there are some reports that the two have called off their engagement. But we all know how these things go: they're together, then they're not, then they are, then they're not, and so on ad infinitum. So until one of them marries or becomes officially attached to someone else, she's still his WAG.
Anyway, Brittany, as you may have guessed, is a model, and she's constantly tweeting ridiculously sexy pictures of herself. So if there's any sports WAG you should be following on Twitter, it's Brittany. (You're welcome.)
