- Former WWE Diva Taryn “Tiffany” Terrell recently spoke with The Sun’s SunSport. Here are some highlights:
Posing for Playboy vs. wrestling:
“The very first time I ever shot for Playboy was pretty nerve-racking but within an hour you are comfortable, because Playboy has this reputation for being so professional. They’re fun to work with and by the end of the day you go ‘I’m still naked? I didn’t even realise.’ You just forget about it. But when you’re in the ring and everyone is staring at you, that’s what really gets you. The most nerve-racking part is knowing that Vince McMahon is watching you.”
The incident that led to her WWE release with husband Drew McIntyre:
“There was no issue. There was a security guard that knew who my husband was. He just decided to cause trouble for my husband. I stood up to the guard and I took the fall. Nothing had really transpired. It was just this security guard. I have no clue why people want to screw you over for no reason when you don’t even know them. Maybe they are jealous because they can’t do what he does. It was obviously a really difficult time in our lives, but we’ve moved on, we’re really happy. We’ve always been in a good place. It’s silly that it was reported that we weren’t. I think it had everything to do with my release from WWE. Everything else was going really well for me, Vince was happy with my work and I was progressing well. I’m saddened by it of course, because it was out of my hands. There was nothing I could do.
But I understand. They’re a PG company and worried about their image. I really believed that because everything was cleared immediately with it, that they were going to take me back because there was no evidence against me for anything. I really hoped they would have given me that chance as they have given several of their superstars and a few Divas that have got into situations. But it’s given me an opportunity to move on with my life and move on to something new.”
The DivaMania tour with Maria Kanellis and Ashley Massaro:
“I’m really excited about this. One of my Playmate friends had worked with Andrew Scott, who set it all up, and put me in touch with him. Andrew came with this brilliant idea to do a former Divas tour, which is really cool because we’ll be able to visit nightclubs and bars, where fans will be able to see us on a different level. They usually only see us on TV or at a WWE signing. It’s not very personal. With this they can come and hang out. I am a huge dancer, I love to dance so they get to see us in a personal light. It’s just going to be a really good time. I’m really pumped about it. Literally it’s just a big party. And I love to party.”
