• ECW Diva Francine Comments On Rumors Of Her Sleeping With Shane Douglas
During a recent appearance on “Eyes Up Here” podcast, ECW Diva Francine talked about ring rats, rumors of sleeping with Shane Douglas & more.
Below are the highlights:
On how women are talked about in many shoot interviews:
“I started to think about all the shoot interviews that guys have done throughout the years in this business, and how they talk about the women in the sport, and it irritates me.
And I can’t tell you how many times the interviewer, it’s happened about me, and it’s happened to probably every girl that has stepped foot in the ring, the interviewer will say, ‘How’s it like working with Francine?’ ‘Well, she slept with this guy, and she was hooking up with him.’ That has nothing to do with what you just asked. And so many people have said, ‘Well, she was Shane Douglas’ rat.’ I’ve heard that so many times.”
On rumors of having a relationship with Shane Douglas:
“Infuriates me. I get so angry, because number one, I’ve never been with Shane. I can’t emphasize this enough, people still to this day, well some people still think we’re married, but a lot of the boys still think I’m lying and I was with him, and I’ve never been with him.”
On feeling bad for Carmella facing backlash for her relationship with Corey Graves:
“It just triggered me watching [Carmella] and her going through what she’s going through, and people calling her names, without knowing the real story. And I don’t know her, I’ve never met her, so I’m not saying she’s telling the truth or lying, but I feel for her because she’s getting all these people calling her names and nobody even knows what the real story is. She’s telling her story but people want to believe what they want to believe.”
