Diva Dish: Candice's eyes fixed on gold
This week in Diva Dish, Candice Michelle sets her eyes on Beth Phoenix's prize, Jillian helps Mickie James (yes, you read that correctly), Kelly Kelly bonds with Layla, and Maria returns home to train.
Eyes on the prize
Former Women's Champion Candice Michelle said nothing is going to stop her from going after Beth Phoenix's title. She'll do just about anything to get it back.
"Right now, all eyes are on the prize. I don't have it around my waist right now, so that's what I'm pursuing. That's what I'm really all about," she smiled. "If you really want it, and you want to knock somebody off that platform, you've got to full blown give it your all, your everything, and that's what I'm ready to do!"
We all know Mickie James and Jillian aren't exactly the best of friends, but that didn't stop Jillian from saving a fellow Diva.
"So I saved Mickie James' life, even though I don't really like her that much," Jillian said, rolling her eyes.
"We were walking across the street, and she started to walk out in front of a car, and I pulled her back and dove on her, and she didn't get hit. The car didn't even slow down!" the Raw Diva said. "Over here in England, they don't even stop for people at all!"
So does this mean Mickie and Jillian have called a truce? Well, not exactly.
"After I saved her life, I said, ‘Are you OK?' And she said, ‘I'm fine.' And then I just left because really, I didn't want anything to do with her," Jillian said. "I mean, I kind of pie-faced her down a little bit, but I couldn't not save her life."
For her good deed, Jillian has decided to reward herself with a little vacation after the European tour.
"I'm heading to Las Vegas when I get home. The rest of the people will be here for about six more days, but I'm heading to Vegas!" she hollered. "My game is slots. I play the slots. I'm up about $17 bucks on them right now. I'm hoping to make it bigger. I'll just keep winning!"
Kelly Kelly said she's been enjoying the recent European tour because it's given her a lot of time to bond with Extreme Exposé member, Layla.
"Layla and I are here together, because Brooke has some stuff she's taking care of now," Kelly explained. "So Layla and I are always together. Everyone says we watch out for each other and stay together."
While it seems Kelly and her Exposé partners don't always agree on everything, especially when it comes to men, it doesn't mean they can't stay close.
"We've bonded so much on this tour. I've been having a great time. The bikini contests are fun," Kelly said. "We are inseparable. We support each other through everything. She's the shoulder I cry on, and I'm hers, too."
Kelly also said she plans to take a few days for some rest and relaxation after she returns home from Europe.
"I want to go to Hawaii. I want to go to the middle of nowhere. I love to surf. Back home in Jacksonville I dated a pro surfer, back when I was about 17," she said. "I always went to all the contests with him, and he taught me how to surf. I've gotten pretty good."
While Maria isn't on WWE's full European tour this time around, the Raw Diva is still finding time to get in the ring when she returns to the States.
"The European tour is going well. I'm not on the full tour. Candice Michelle and Beth Phoenix are fighting for the title. I'd love to be in the mix, but I'm not and that's totally cool." Maria told Diva Dish.
"This week I'm actually going to Tampa, Florida, and I'm going to work out in the ring at the wrestling school down there, and see who the new girls are and see what they're all about," Maria smiled. "I'm going to have some fun. I'm really excited. Natty Neidhart is down there, and I'm definitely excited to work with her, that's what I'm looking forward to the most."
