Will Bianca Kajlich reconcile with Landon Donovan?

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: It was sad to hear that ”Rules of Engagement” star Bianca Kajlich and her soccer hero husband, Landon Donovan, had gone separate ways last year — especially having heard the actress describe her mate in adoring terms on several occasions. So it put a smile on fans’ faces when he blew her a kiss on camera after his stunning, last-second goal that kept U.S. World Cup hopes alive.

On top of that, as USA Today reports, Donovan says he’s been on the phone with Bianca, that he’s carried her with him in spirit through these incredibly emotional days in South Africa, and that they’re not “officially” divorced.

Beautiful Bianca talked about her dual life as a network TV star and a futbol wife with humor and affection in ‘08, and made it clear she’s a booster. She noted, “People say that soccer is not a very popular sport here, but what most people don’t understand is that the league is only 13 years old. You think about how long football and baseball have been around and they’re a part of our history as Americans — but soccer, it’s brand new. This is a cool opportunity for people to jump on board and be a part of something that could be huge in 20 years.”

Or much sooner.

Bianca talks about being a soccer “WAG” in this 2007 story:

Rising Star Bianca Kajlich: Series Star Also Knows Life Among the Soccer WAGs

The British tabloids have been making rivals out of Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham and Bianca Kajlich – months before the most well-known soccer star in the world, David Beckham, is due to make his debut as the new $250 million player of the L.A. Galaxy.

Kajlich, you see, is wed to top American soccer star Landon Donovan, up ’til now the Galaxy’s top man.

That makes her tops among what U.K. soccer fans refer to as the WAGs – that is, Wives and Girlfriends of players — in the United States.

In England, “There is almost as much press and publicity about the WAGs as about the athletes themselves,” Kajlich notes.

The media – here and abroad – have talked a lot about the shift within the Galaxy thanks to the landmark Beckham deal. Referring to Donovan, who gets a reported $900,000 a season, one Los Angeles sports writer summed up, “the Designated Superstar of Major League Soccer for the past two seasons later this year becomes David Beckham’s Galaxy Sidekick.” The move would be “disconcerting” to many, he added, but Donovan is “the most level-headed star in sports.”

It’s nice to report that his wife comes off quite level-headed as well.
