An Example Of Her Diet: "...I wouldn't call it a 'breakfast of champions', but I DO have to stick to a very strict diet to stay in top physical form!

Her Message To Kids: "You don't have to do anything you don't want to...just because a friend tells you to. For example, I hung out with the in crowd, was captain of the chearleaders, had a different boyfriend every single week, and to this day I have never smoked, drank, or did a drug just to fit in. Because, by being myself...I was fitting in. If you feel like you have to do something that you don't want to do just to make someone happy, thier not your friends and you can do without them.

What Does She Think Of Tammy's Team and Candido's Crew: "TAMMY'S TEAM RULES! CANDIDO'S CREW IS COOL! And everybody who isn't in one of those clubs should join!"
If She Left Wrestling Today, What Would She Be Doing: "If I decided to continue living a really grand lifestyle, then I would of course try Hollywood, but if I decided to settle down and have a normal life I'd go back to medical school and be a pediatrician.
