The Divas Meet the Dolls: Kelly Kelly & Ashley
Kelly Kelly and Ashley Roberts kick off the first installment of WWE.com's The Divas Meet the Dolls -- a week-long series featuring conversations between the WWE Divas and the Pussycat Dolls. The pop group recently released their second studio album, Doll Domination.
Ashley: Hi Kelly Kelly! It's so great to talk to you. Tell me, when did you decide you wanted to get involved with WWE? (PCD PHOTOS)
Kelly Kelly: It's so nice to meet you, too, Ashley! Well, when I was 19 years old, WWE found me and offered me a dream job of a lifetime and I took it and trained to become a WWE Diva. (KELLY KELLY'S LATEST PHOTOS)
Ashley: That's so cool. So is there a song you listen to to help pump you up before a big match?
Kelly Kelly: Yeah, there are a lot. I'd have to say "When I Grow Up" by you guys is one that I listen to before I go out on stage.
Is there a song you'd suggest that would be a good one to play in our arenas to help open a WWE show?
Ashley: I would say "Takin' Over the World" because you are a rock star like us, and WWE is takin' over the world, baby!
Kelly Kelly: You got it, girl! So what do you do to prepare yourself for going out on stage?
Ashley: I always try and stretch and warm up my muscles. And then take a second to say thanks and ground myself.
Kelly Kelly: What's that moment like, right before you get on stage?
Ashley: It's so exciting. I usually get little butterflies in my stomach, especially if I have people I know in the audience. How about you?
Kelly Kelly: I pray before every match. I know that I'm in God's hands, and He will give me the strength to do amazing! ... But I get so nervous before I go out, so I try to keep my mind on the match and keep telling myself I'll be great!
Ashley: Of course you'll be great! So, on your days off, do you do anything special to pamper yourself?
Kelly Kelly: I sleep a lot, and just spend time with friends, shopping, going to the beach and try to be as normal as possible when I'm home.
Ashley: What is your sanctuary like? Where do you go to find peace of mind?
Kelly Kelly: I love spending time in my own bed and just relaxing, reading a book or watching a movie. I'm a total homebody, so anytime I'm home, that is where I find peace of mind. My sanctuary is surrounded with pictures of friends and family, pictures of art and a lot of pink things! And lots of clothes! How about yours?
Ashley: The beach is most definitely my sanctuary. I love the smell of the ocean and the sound of the waves. The water just calms me and I feel the most at peace.
So if you could lock yourself in for an evening of watching movies, which three films would you watch?
Kelly Kelly: The Notebook, Sex and the City and Halloween. How about you?
Ashley: I'd also pick Sex and the City! My other two would be Good Will Hunting and Tommy Boy.
Now, we both have busy travel schedules. What's the most challenging thing about traveling with WWE? What is your favorite thing about traveling?
Kelly Kelly: The best thing has to be getting to see the world. The most challenging thing is losing sleep! How about you?
Ashley: The most challenging is being away from my loved ones. … And missing my bed! The best part is getting to do what I love to do, which is performing on stage, and I get to do it all over the world.
Return to WWE.com tomorrow for the second installment of The Divas Meet the Dolls, as SmackDown's fashionista Diva, Maria, gets to know Pussycat Dolls frontwoman, Nicole Scherzinger.
