Kelly Kelly on "Maxim’s" 2011 Hot 100
Maxim’s Hot 100 is known as "the definitive list of the world’s most beautiful women." So it’s no shocker one of WWE’s gorgeous and talented Divas, Kelly Kelly, has made her debut on the prestigious list. (PHOTOS: Kelly Kelly at the Hot 100 party | WATCH)
“This has always been a dream of mine,” Kelly Kelly said. “It’s something I wanted to strive to be on. When I got the announcement that I was going to be on it, I thought that this is such an honor and such a dream come true.”
In an exclusive interview with WWE.com, Kelly Kelly revealed she was genuinely surprised to make the list.
“I was so excited. I think I was more shocked than anything. And then I was so happy. It was one of the best days of my life, getting that news!” she said.
The first person Kelly Kelly shared the big news with is one of her biggest supporters – her mother.
“She was so happy. She knew it was something I always strived to be on, that it was a list I always wanted to be a part of. So she was always behind me 100 percent,” the Diva said.
Kelly Kelly joins some of today’s hottest celebrities, such as Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, Megan Fox, Rihanna and even newlywed Princess Kate Middleton, on Maxim’s 2011 Hot 100.
“Honestly, it’s so crazy to think about the big names that are on there. Getting the honor to be on that list with them is amazing,” Kelly Kelly said.
“I hope this isn’t the last of it. I hope I get on the list again and my number gets lower and lower every year.”
In her Maxim Hot 100 debut, Kelly Kelly ranked at No. 82. She’s hoping to continue her reign on the list for years to come, just as former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler has. Keibler is the only other Diva to ever make the list, and has been on it every year since 2006.
“Just to be on the Hot 100 with Stacy is exciting. She’s somebody I’ve always admired and I’ve always looked up to,” the Diva said.
Kelly Kelly isn’t too worried about jealousy or backlash from the other Divas … except maybe for Kharma, who’s been decimating Divas since her recent debut.
“It’ll probably give her even more ammo to come after me,” Kelly Kelly said, acknowledging how lucky she was to escape during Kharma’s attack on Maryse. (WATCH)
Finally, Kelly Kelly told WWE.com she had to thank the WWE Universe for helping her dream of making Maxim’s Hot 100 come true.
“Thank you for always supporting me and always being there,” she said. “I hope they’re happy and proud of me.”
