Eva Marie Says She Has Spoken to WWE About a Return

Feb 12, 2019 - by James Walsh

Eva Marie spoke with TV Insider for a new interview discussing her run on Celebrity Big Brother following her elimination this week. Highlights are below:

On if she expected to be so emotionally invested in the show: “I had no idea at all that I was that emotional about it. I didn’t realize that I was going to make some lifetime friends while I was in the Big Brother house and actually competing for a number-one spot. It was definitely hitting me all at once, for sure.”

On how her time in WWE prepared her for Big Brother: “You hit it spot on [about politics in wrestling and big personalities]. It was definitely something I had on all the other house guests because throughout my time there I was really used to seeing people up and down, all over the place. With WWE, you’re dealing with a million different people and different characters. Sleep-deprived, traveling all around the world. So, I got to take that person I got to see that day because trust me, it was an emotional roller coaster in there with the other house guests. For sure, being in WWE helped me immensely going into the Big Brother house.”

On the inspiration behind her purple hair: “It is so funny. I ended up going black for my first two movie roles. Then I just got the itch to dye it another color because I love color. Clearly, I was Miss “All Red Everything.” I don’t know what it was, but I decided, “You know what? I feel like I’m going to go purple.” Then, as soon as I went purple, I actually booked a TV show right before Big Brother. And they wanted my hair for that, so its kind of worked out perfectly. I thought, “You know, I ‘m going to rock this purple for a minute.””

On how people’s perception of her changed over the season: “I think probably people underestimated me. They were probably, “Who is this girl with the colorful hair?” They probably had no idea I was a wrestler or really competitive and athletic, as well. I think that perception changed in the days in the house. People got to know me. If anything, that was what I’m assuming, that people kind of underestimated me from the very beginning, which isn’t a bad thing.”

On the experience of disconnecting from social media: “It was amazing. A lot of my work is definitely social media based. Even though being in the house is highly stressful. We’re doing a lot with the competitions, figuring out who to trust and all of these other things. But being able to not have your phone and have actual conversations with people, really be still with yourself, it was truly amazing. I’ve only been out of the house for 12 hours or so now, but I’m going to definitely going to try to apply that into daily life now and not be so connected with my phone. I don’t know if there is a correlation between the phone usage or because I’m happy doing this experience and feeling good from that. I’m really proud of myself for being mentally tough through it all. Not really having breakdowns or anything like that.”

On if she’s talked with WWE about coming back since leaving: “There has been emails and talk and exchanges back and forth. But no, I was not approached about being a part of the Royal Rumble. I can tell you that. Other things, there has definitely been talks for sure.”
