Ms. Money in the Bank Carmella was recently announced for the new season of Total Divas.
In a recent interview with The Wrap, Carmella opened up about the series, and some of the challenges she faced.
Filming Total Divas:
"It was different at first, that’s for sure. How am I supposed to act, what am I supposed to do? When you sign up for a reality show, you have to put your personal life out there.
But I am excited to share my struggle with my relationship. I am dating another WWE Superstar, Big Cass, he is on “Raw” and I am on “SmackDown,” so we get to show the world our struggles as it’s like a long-distance relationship and we only see each other one-and-a-half days a week, sometimes less. I really want to show women that it is OK to have a career and put that — not necessarily first — but to put it out there. You can do it all. Is it going to be hard? Yes. Is it going to be worth it? Of course."
Drama on Total Divas:
"I really think it is important especially at this time in the women's revolution to show we're not here to bring each other down, we're here to bring each other up. There's going to be inevitable drama with the travel, sometimes it gets to you and you forget what's really important and why we're all here. My role on the show so far from filming is trying to be the peacemaker and remind everyone what we're doing here — we are making history, having great matches and moving forward with this women's revolution. I just want to be champion, I want to make history. I am here, I am doing it and I want to make history."
