Roller derby Diva
Mickie James fans, get Psych-ed! The Diva will be a guest star on the USA Network hit show Psych tonight at 10 p.m.
"My name is Rita Westwood, and I am roller derby chick. But, I'm also in a band of thieves, which are my roller derby partners-in-crime. That's all I'm going to say. I don't kiss and tell," the Raw Diva teased about her role.
Mickie said she's "super-psyched" for the opportunity to be a guest on Psych, and that she's sure her roller skating skills won't disappoint -- she has a history in the rink.
"When I was younger, my mom worked at a roller rink, so I'd go all the time. I learned to skate pretty well. I won the limbo all the time. The fact that I'm so vertically challenged helped me win the limbo championships," she laughed.

Maryse is sure she'll be the first WWE Diva to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She's so certain, she's recently been spotted toting around a replica of what she envisions her future star to look like.
"I consider myself the sexiest woman in the world. I don't think it's possible to be sexier than I am. I think eventually my star will say ‘The Sexiest Woman in the World,'" she explained.
The Diva, who will challenge Michelle McCool for the Divas Championship this Sunday at Unforgiven, may have a point -- the SmackDown starlet was recently chased by Hollywood paparazzi after WWE's SummerFest '08. Plus, Maryse considers herself an artist, because to her, sexiness is not only a way of life, it's an art.
"A lot of women try to be sexy, but you cannot tell yourself, ‘I'll be sexy tonight when I go out.' You have to be sexy 24/7. That's why it's an art," she pointed out. "I'm sexy from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to bed. I guess even in my sleep, I'm sexy! I deserve a star for this because there is no woman alive who is as sexy as I am. I'm sure everybody who has met me in the past will agree with this."
Divas Champion Michelle McCool recently spent time visiting her family, including her 10-year-old godson, who never fails to entertain.
"He's such a fun kid. He's always got something up his sleeve! As soon as I went to see him, I walked in and he told me he needed stitches. I said, ‘Why do you need stitches?' He pulled up his shirt and said, ‘Because I am ripped!' I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?!'" she laughed.
With such a busy schedule as a Diva, time spent with her family is time Michelle cherishes.
"I think the biggest compliment is when somebody says, ‘You haven't changed at all.' And I don't understand why you would change. If you're grounded in your roots, you're grounded in your roots, and just because you're doing something you love and you're exposed to a lot of people, I don't think that should change the person you are," she said.
"I always say that family, friendship, hope and love are the biggest things you can have, so I try to take advantage of that on my days off, and spend time with the family and go watch my godson play sports, or go eat lunch with him at school. It's just good. It keeps me down to earth and keeps a smile on my face."
Jillian recently attended her high school reunion, and while she didn't have the opportunity to wow her former classmates with a tune, she did surprise many of them with her Diva status.
"Everyone thought that I was completely different than I was in high school, looks-wise, and I am. I'm the same person, obviously, with the same personality. But, looks-wise, some were very surprised," she said. "Some already knew, though, because they had seen WWE. But, some people didn't recognize me or even know who I was."
The Raw Diva was a bit let down a particular classmate wasn't in attendance.
"My high school boyfriend was not there and I was very disappointed. Because he was not a very nice person to me at times and I wanted to see him big and fat!" she laughed.
