Paige on Being a Role Model to Fans, Her Wedding Planning, Rosa’s Pregnancy, More
– Paige recently spoke with E! News to promote WWE Total Divas. Below are some highlights:
How’s the wedding planning going?
We haven’t gotten very far yet. We haven’t started planning anything because I think I could be engaged for five years. I don’t want to rush into stuff. But I’ll keep you posted as soon as I know what’s going on.
How’s Rosa Mendes doing with her pregnancy?
She’s doing absolutely amazing! She’s getting bigger and bigger. Her body’s staying skinny, but she’s just got a belly. Lucky chick! But she’s still working so hard. She’s got a new kids’ line coming out. She’s so excited and she looks beautiful. I’m actually the one who set [her and her boyfriend, Bobby] up. I felt like a little cupid. They text me every day like, “We love you. We can’t believe you did this for us.” I have a few things planned for Rosa that she doesn’t know about, which you’ll see next season.
How does it feel to be a role model for your fans?
It definitely feels absolutely amazing. That’s definitely something being on Total Divas in awesome for—it’s a platform to get out positive messages and help girls and guys be themselves. They don’t have to impress anyone. They can be whoever they want to be and it doesn’t matter. I don’t care if Tom, Dick and Harry don’t like me because of the way I dress. I’m me. I like that I can portray that to everyone and get that message out there.
Have you ever felt pressure to conform?
One of my tryouts with WWE, I tried to conform. I tried to be what I thought I was supposed to be, so I dyed my hair lighter, I got a tan, took my piercings out and wore color, and they didn’t like it. I came back as myself and that’s how I got signed. I never felt any pressure from them to conform. They’ve always liked me for the way I am and they never wanted to change me. It’s great. I’m lucky, I guess.
