Eva Marie has had quite a year. Now, she’s a WWE Diva with an appearance in the latest Maxim Magazine, but 9 months ago, she was also a finalist for Miss Double December 2013!
“And how did that go?” Bean joked.
“You know what? I’m sitting here as a WWE Diva,” Eva answered, “so it went good.”
Eva grew up with three older brothers who loved wrestling, attended a “Diva Search” open audition, and ended up getting multiple call-backs before getting the job.
She still considered a Diva “in-development”, but the self-proclaimed tom boy is loving the life . “I get to be a pro-athlete, glam up and rock some red carpets, and do some charity events.”
Eva also appears on the E! series “Total Divas”, which follows a group of WWE Divas to give a behind the scenes look at the wrestling organization. Viewers get to see the good days, the bad days, and Eva’s journey to become a full-fledged Diva.
WWE Summer Slam is also this Sunday at the Staples Center, and Eva is excited to have her first match , a tag team battle versus “Extra’s” Maria Menounos.
How is Eva handling all of this newly-found fame?
“I feel like I’m dreaming, it’s so surreal. I’m so grateful for it, but it hasn’t really hit me.” She was even surprised to get stopped for autographs as she walking into the KROQ building.
“I’m just taking it day by day.”
What a difference from nine months ago.
