We get so wrapped in all of the baby mama drama and the side chicks that we forget about the ones that really matter. The women that actually hold these athletes’ last name. So in honor of #WomanCrushWednesday CLASSY|RATCHET is paying homage to the wives of some of your favorite athletes. Your hustle doesn’t ever go unnoticed ladies. We see you!

Here are some of our favorite #MVW’s (Most Valuable Wives):


La La Anthony 

Can we say #allsummer16? Lala is serving! When you hear her name you probably think Carmelo Anthony. The two tied the knot back in 2010 and have been holding each other down ever since. But La La is more than just the wife of the Knicks Star; she’s a triple threat! She was a television personality on TRL which, we use to love and she’s even made appearances in the television show Power and she’s also starred in the Think Like A Man movie. La La has also been casted for the New Edition biopic which is set to release sometime this year. Oh and did we mention that she’s the author of several books too.


Kerry Washington 

Luckily for this wife we haven’t heard of any “scandals” and we hope it stays that way. Our beloved Olivia Pope has been married to NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha for three years and they are expecting their second child together. Kerry is one of CLASSY|RATCHET’S favorite actresses! She is a hit in every movie she stars in. From Save the Last Dance to Django we will follow Kerry anywhere! Or should we say Ms. Pope.


Jessica Simpson 

This beauty can still rock a pair of daisy dukes to this day! That snap back after two kids with her NFL hubby Eric Johnson is real. And we can’t help but admire her entrepreneurial spirit. She’s managed to turn her name into a brand. Her shoe line is everything! From Nordstrom, to DSW, Macy’s and LordandTaylor her shoe line entitled, Jessica Simpson is available everywhere. We are obsessed with the shoes Jessica keep em’ coming!


Victoria Beckham 

Her husband’s chiseled features couldn’t steal her shine. This powerful style icon has made a name for herself and it isn’t Posh Spice. From Fashion Week appearances to awards like Entrepreneur of the Year; Victoria Beckham is probably one of the most talked about MVW’s. Her confidence and impeccable style are just a few of the reasons why we love her


Gabrielle Union

CLASSY|RATCHET has been riding with Gabrielle ever since she was a Clover. How could you not love her? She’s such an inspiration and extremely hard working. We were so happy to see her and Dwyane tie the knot. Whether he wins another championship game or not D-Wade will always have a trophy. There isn’t a role that she doesn’t kill. Hence why we’re patiently waiting and hoping for another season of Being Mary Jane. But until then we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed!
