How did you get involved with WWE?

I was studying for my Masters at UM and randomly got a call from an agent that WWE was interested in me. I was taken aback. My whole family had been huge fans in the late 80s. At the time I was feeling like there was something out their for me that I was missing and just hadnt found yet. WWE was that thing. As a former athlete I had missed competition badly and being in the ring was the most amazing feeling. It was truly a dream come true for me. Exactly what I needed in my life at the time, and hey, if it weren't for WWE I would never have met my husband. I kind of owe them everything!

Will we ever see you back in WWE?

Thats a great question. WWE is near and dear to my heart. My husband, brother in law and father in law all have ties to the wrestling business, I have nothing but respect and love for WWE. When I trained in the past I absolutely loved it and it is something that I miss a lot. So with that said...who knows what the future holds?

What is your favorite photo shoot that you've ever done?

By far my shoots with Maxim. As one of the top ten hotties a few years back Maxim flew us all to Las Vegas and put us up at the Hard Rock Hotel. It was an amazing week! Amazing shoots with superb photographers in the most jaw-dropping suites I've ever seen. In one shot I even got to bowl in sexy attire. What could be better than that?

What inspired you to design and sell swimwear?

Having been a swimwear model for all of these years, I've always had a hard time finding swimwear that was attractive, had a nice fit AND was fairly priced. Everyone can't afford to buy the super high end suits, but everyone does deserve the chance to feel sexy and beautiful in their swimwear. My line is for those girls who are looking for all of those qualities without having to break the bank.

Whats the one thing you have wanted to do with your career that you haven't yet?

The one thing I'd like to do is actually in the works right now. Its something that I cant go into detail about yet but it's happening SOON. I am immensely excited about it and I have a LOT of hard work ahead but I'm ready for the challenge and just excited to be living this dream. So stay tuned if you want to find out what that is all about!
