Northjersey.com has an interview up with former WWE Women’s champion Mickie James. Mickie talks about her musical background, Twitter and her weight.
Q. You were part of a segment a couple weeks ago where one of the other Divas was criticizing your weight. Are you ever hesitant to try a storyline where it tackles an issue like that?
Well, no, because I don’t think I’m heavy, for one. I’m only 130, 135 pounds. But at the same time, no, because it’s entertainment. Is it my favorite? I don’t really know. I guess we’ll have to see where it goes. It depends on the payoff. We’re telling stories and we’re building emotional things where people can actually connect with it. And I think that a lot of women in general, society has put on this thing where every female should look like Paris Hilton who is 6-foot something, and 100 pounds. That’s not how America is and that’s not how the real women in the world look.
