On this day in history:

October 12th, 2009 | Virtually no one expected Jillian to defeat Divas Champion Mickie James. Using the ropes as leverage, though, Jillian was able to skew the odds, pin Mickie and become the new champ. She was as shocked as the rest of us, screaming and giving an acceptance speech, capping it all off with a rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi”. She was interrupted by guest GM Nancy O’Dell, who announced that Melina had been traded to Raw and would be facing Jillian in her first title defense right then and there. Melina made short work of Jillian, pinning her and becoming the third woman to hold the championship that night. Jillian, meanwhile, earned the distinction of having the shortest Divas Title reign in history.

    I’m still salty about this. All because Mickie was moving to Smackdown and the Smackdown vs RAW PPV was around the corner so they needed Melina as champion. Jillian didn’t deserve this as a first time champion.

      And it didn’t even matter that Melina was the champ for that match cause she still took the pin anyway

  • They really misused Jillian like this when she literally had everything they wanted in a Diva at the time. Blonde, big boobs, talented, great on the mic, and always got heat. What was not to love? I’m glad she got these 5 minutes at least.

      I think Jilly Bean was really hot in her early days, but then the plastic surgery became a lil too much and the lips made her look really cheap imo. I love her, but she def. went over board imo.

    So much more could have been done with Jillian’s character. -_-
