Diva of the Year, Maria has revealed how she believes her 32,000+ Twitter followers helped her to her shocking Slammy win a week ago today.
Speaking in a behind the scenes interview with G4’s Attack of the Show, Maria says she was shocked by the win because she had been away ‘working on a charity’ [The Celebrity Apprentice] and thought that the WWE Universe had forgotten her. Watch the interview below:
Among Maria’s ambitions include her own television show and she also plans to release an album next spring. It seems as though Maria is using her WWE career as a launching pad for other projects in the entertainment industry like Mickie James and Stacy Keibler, both of whom are on WWE’s proverbial ‘shit list’. I find it surprising that part of the reason WWE is riding Mickie is because she’s working on a project outside of WWE using her celebrity [which WWE no doubt thinks they gave her], but Maria has also noted several times on Twitter that she’s working on her own CD — yet no backlash there. In fact, it seems Maria is getting a push going into the premiere of The Celebrity Apprentice next March. I guess you only get ragged on if you’re ‘fat’ and working on an outside project?
