Sunday, August 5 marked the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's death, and her legacy as a timeless beauty, talented but troubled actress and, yes, WAG continues to have an impact on pop culture.
Monroe truly represented a shift in our society; she bucked tradition and lived a life that burned fast and brightly. Her marriage to Joe DiMaggio was huge news and brought together culture, politics and sports in a way that we're very familiar with today, but which was fresh and unfamiliar during a rapidly changing American era.
So, in honor of her legacy and influence on how fans and media alike gravitate toward stories about love between famous, and sometimes infamous, beautiful women and the pro athletes they love, I've compiled a list of the hottest WAGS.
And...yes...Norma Jean is on it.
