My Life As… a WAG – Cassie Lane

Cassie Lane has lived a highly accomplished life. Masters graduate, international model, author (and apparently Pictionary superstar) are just a few of the bullet points on Cassie’s CV.

But there was a time when Cassie was described by large portions of the tabloid media as simply a “WAG.”

For sixteen months Cassie Lane was in a relationship with footballer Alan Didak.

In her book How to Dress a DummyCassie details some of the advantages that come with being a WAG. But in this episode of My Life As, we learn that the negatives can far outweigh the positives.

For many in AFL circles the Brownlow Medal is seen as one of the most prestigious events on the footy calendar.

But for Cassie Lane the Brownlow Medal turned into a nightmare when she was plastered all over the Melbourne newspapers as the Brownlow’s “worst dressed”.

It was brutal stuff. The criticism broke a spell and changed Cassie’s perspective on the AFL WAG lifestyle.

“The Brownlow spell broken, I was able to see just how silly the whole thing was.”
