• Kelly Kelly Explains Why She Never Got Implants In WWE
During a recent edition of Lilian Garcia’s Chasing Glory podcast, former WWE Divas Champion Kelly Kelly talked about watching wrestling with her dad, getting hired by WWE & more.
Below are the highlights:
On watching wrestling with her dad:
“When I was in my early teenage years, I loved watching wrestling and he loved it too. We would watch it together. That was what we would do together, it was our thing. I remember my mom would walk in and be like ‘Ugh, don’t watch that, it’s too violent.’ Whenever she wasn’t around, we’d watch it.”
On joining WWE at the age of 19:
“It’s so crazy how it all happened too. When I got the phone call about them being interested in hiring me, my dad was like ‘Yes! You have to do it.’ I mean all of my family was proud, but I thought it was cool since that was our thing.
John Laurinaitis was friends with the guy who was running the catalog.
He (Laurinaitis) said I need some beautiful models, but we want them to be athletic as well. So, he (the owner of the catalog) said I’ll send you some of the pictures of the girls that I manage.
He sent over pictures of me and Alicia Fox and we both got hired. They [WWE] liked us and we moved to Louisville.”
On never getting any cosmetic surgery in WWE:
“I feel like for me coming into the WWE at such a young age, I never felt the need to get breast implants or change my body. I’ve always been very comfortable with my body…You either like my look or you don’t. I’m not going to change it for anyone. I remember some would say ‘Oh, you’re just a blond, you look like the all-American,’ and I’m like that’s my look.
I’m very lucky and blessed that I haven’t taken the whole social media with body influences seriously. So many girls get impacted, especially with the body image stuff and it’s so sad. I think we’re definitely coming up [with celebrating body differences and feeling comfortable about it].”
