    At first I was surprised it was only fifteen minutes, what with Shellys being so long and all. But that was an excellent interview, direct and straight to the point. I’m loving the quality from DD.

    Ah, was wondering when someone would bring up the length. We only had a limited amount of time with Traci unfortunately, she had a whole day of press junkets for her Playboy shoot.

    I think Traci is kinda misinformed. She claims “now more people (6 million) will get to see the photos”. But the online playboy site has both the cyberclub and magazine pictures. So if she was in the magazine it wouldve been “6 million online users + magazine readers”.

    There is also a big status difference. The cybergirls are usually considered “b-list playmates”, kinda what the FCW is to the WWE, if they are populair enough they get to do a regular photoshoot for the magazine. A lot of the playmates started out as a cybergirl. But traci isnt a cybergirl or playmate, she is just a featured celebrity on a website, thats like “c-list”, kinda like “the girls of Enron” special playboy did, its usually filler material for the website.

    She might think that the entire world is going to see the pictures but the truth is that not many people are going to care except a few wrestle fans who are curious. But for the casual playboy visitor the girls of Enron have the same name value as a pro-wrestler.

    I completely understand, for the time allowed I thought it was an excellent interview.

  • PedroPedroso17

    Wow, I’ve got to admit, when I first heard Tiffany doin’ a interview thingy I was like “meh, Melanie could’ve done it”, but now, OMG, is Tiffany crazy amazing or what? Most Improved Diva of the year right there :P

  • xxChristinaxx

  • theregoeskitty

    cool she seems nice
    all this prais is probably the reason for alicia’s push :D
    fingers crossed for a title change sunday (i wont hold my breath tho)

  • http://www.twitter.com/thewweuberfan TheWWEUberfan

    I REALLY hope ‘LiLi wins on Sunday. If Maryse deserved the title when SHE got it, Victoria frickin’ Crawford deserves it 10 times more. & can you BELIEVE someone told me Maryse has more talent than Alicia?!?! UNBELIEVABLE RIGHT!?!?!?!

  • RKOyou

    alicia fox is definitly raising many eyebrows,she’s just so COOL,this sunday will be the BEGINNING of alicia fox(title change or no title change) so heres hoping she does well with mickie

    I agree with traci,Beth and Nattie would make great knockouts

  • nicorette

    wow traci seems really cool. i love how she didnt bash the divas, and wanted them to succeed, it made me really respect her more.

    and i love how Diva Dirt is doing all of these amazing interviews!! good job guys its always great to come to this site

  • rico

    This made me love Traci even more! Im glad she didnt bash the divas.

  • satsumi

    great interview. i respect her more for having not bashed the divas. she seems like an interesting person. thanks for getting this for everyone! =D

  • Goodvibes

    Great interview, Diva dirt is definitely raising the stakes, loving it.

    Its unfortunate she wasnt featured in the actual magazine, but at least TNA has opened the door for future opportunities. For the record NOBODY does playboy better than SABLE, sorry Ashley, Torrie, Candice, Maria, Christy and now Traci….well Chyna had a better selling issue apparantly but thats besides the point lol.

    And another point for Team Fox!! This girl is something special…Lets hope Mickie can pull a somewhat decent match together for Alicia’s sake.
