During an interview with Channel Guide Magazine, former WWE Diva Kelly Kelly talked about how WWE isn’t supportive of her new reality show WAGS, which airs directly after WWE Total Divas on the E! Network.
“They [the fans] have watched every week. They are so supportive of it. The lead-in is ‘Total Divas.’ So it’s perfect because fans want to also know what it’s like after WWE and what life is like. It’s the perfect transition into that. You know WWE hasn’t been very supportive, so that’s kind of upsetting. I’ve gave them so many years. We’re on the same network. We are right after ‘Total Divas.’
They just haven’t given any support whatsoever. They support when guys do other things outside of the business like The Rock and Steve Austin. They support them fully. For me, it’s like really? We didn’t have a falling out. I left on good terms. Now that I’m doing this on my own, and I’m on the same network, you could be more supportive. So that has been upsetting, but people I used to work with and a lot of the wrestlers watch it. So that’s great to have their support. Maryse came on this season, so that was cool. It has been good.”
Kelly Kelly was a mainstay on the WWE ECW brand show on SyFy during the 2000s. She was part of a segment called “Extreme Expose” which involved herself and a few other liberally dressed females dancing to popular music in a provocative fashion. She was a fan favorite mainly because of the desire to be naked because she was a kayfabe exhibitionist much to the dismay of her former on-screen boyfriend Mike Knox.
