- Former WWE Diva Kelly Kelly recently spoke with FashionStyle.com to promote the premiere of E!'s "WAGS (Wives And Girlfriends)" reality show that she will be starring on. The show will follow Kelly with her fiancee, Anaheim Ducks player Sheldon Souray. The full interview is at this link. Below are highlights:
You have a long history with TV from your WWE days. How was it transitioning from professional wrestling to reality TV?
They are both very similar, WWE is just like a soap opera but with wrestling, while Reality TV is just like that but the characters are real and the drama is real! The transition was very easy for me because I'm used to the cameras being around and I was very comfortable so I was able to be myself. I would have to say the biggest challenge was to not let myself get into my old wrestling character (haha), because when I would get into arguments with the other girls I would automatically turn into a WWE DIVA. So I had to remind myself how would Barbie react? Not Kelly Kelly -- we are not in a wrestling ring! Even though sometimes I wish I could be with some of the girls!
How did you meet your fiancé?
I met him through a mutual girlfriend I was living in Tampa at the time. He had a hockey game that next day, so my girlfriend invited me to go to dinner with a bunch of people and he was there and immediately I felt sparks!
What was his reaction when you decided to join the cast of WAGS?
He has been nothing but supportive of me and my career. I honestly couldn't have done it without his support, and when this opportunity presented itself he told me to go for it and have fun!
What can fans expect to see on season one?
They can expect to see a lot of drama! Friendships go up and down and relationships go up and down. It's a great look at what women in the WAG world go through on a daily basis, how we deal with our men being on the road, having our own identities and careers and lots more!
