Barbie had an interview with Fashion & Style and here’s what it said!!
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 was it to have reality cameras following you around while also planning a wedding?
That part was a little annoying because I could sit with my planner for hours talking about my wedding but with the cameras always there I don’t have that much time, so I had to adjust to talking about the most important things at that time. Now when I am not filming I’m able to spend a lot more time doing the stuff I need to get done.
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!
Being that you’re also a professional athlete, do you think your relationship is easier to maintain compared to some of your cast mates?
I just think I related to my fiancé on the level of travel, working out, being on a schedule, etc. There’s so much we both have in common because of our professions that we just get it, and it makes our relationship easy.
What made you want to give reality TV a shot?
I love watching Reality TV shows so when this opportunity came to me I thought “Hey why not give it a try! It could be fun to film a show with your girlfriends and show people what the WAG world is all about!”
How is your relationship with the other cast members?
It has been a rocky road with some of the girls, which you will see on the show. We all didn’t get off on to great off a start but you will have to watch and see how it plays out.
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!
