    I really love this woman. People can be as hateful as they want to be if it makes them feel better about themselves. What counts is the people that love and support her. Like it or not she is an inspiration to alot of us. I wish her nothing but years of happiness and success. She sure as hell deserves it.

    I do not understand how people call this woman fake and do not like her. She’s really emotional and you have to admire that. Good luck in everything you do Melina! If nothing else you have always had and will always have my support!

  • Melina&Mickie4ever!

    I heart Melina Wife #2 !!!! Melina Fan 4evaaaa lol

    lol when Melina started crying i thought of her nick name Lady-Wa-Wa lol

    • Team Laycoolness!!!

      Hahahaha I was just gonna comment “Lady Wa-Wa!”

  • Kantrell

    , is WSU like TNA and WWE??

    • Jhonmarco

      They’re not on TV, so no.

    • laqisha

      There very close to 2008ish Knockout’s Divison.

  • Moxie

    Wow, she’s looking better than ever honestly. It’s great to see her in the news section again.

  • MNM4ever

    love her to pieces!!! nice interview

  • Anthony

    Wow that was very touching. I won’t lie and say I was a huge Melina fan while she was in WWE but I always loved her presence. She was great in the ring and had character like no other. It truly is a shame that the WWE released her without sending her out without at least a farewell match.

    • MNM4ever

      definitely agreed! a farewell match would have been nice,, and would have allowed her to have showcased her talents and give a reason for her departure to the fans

  • MNM4ever

    So she really didnt know who she was competing with??? :O wow even though the match was so good!!

  • bressie

    The less said the better

  • Lita-Sault-666

  • TheFallenAngela

    OMG the tears part made me go awww i loved the interview

  • xLynnBbyx

    people hate on this woman all they want but i love her she is not fake she puts emotion into everything she does she has had a rough few months with dirt sheets posting awful rumors about her dragging her name in the mud i think it’s great that she is still positive towards WWE and still loves WWE she still speaks highly of them i hope some day down the road they offer her to come back she has so much more to offer you can tell this woman has passion for wrestling just by her almost crying We Love You & Support 100% Melina forget what these dirt sheets say! You are still my number one Diva! hope to see you back in WWE

  • EveLover
