Candice Michelle on Chasing Glory

15 posts in this topic

I like Candice, but I really feel like there wasn't much interesting said.

Some highlights.

- Did feel disappointed that she wasn't invited to Evolution and the prior Raw reunions. Felt she was the first "Hollywood girl" to win the women's championship and that shouldn't be overlooked.

- Was excited to be invited to this past Raw reunion. The 24/7 championship means more to her than her women's championship win because it embodies her outlook & where she is now in life.

- They talk about Candice experiencing highs & lows in her life. Says this past year, she experienced a lot of lows, doesn't specify what they were. Made a video talking about this struggle. Wonders if the video would've been able to help Ashley before she passed away.

- One of the biggest things she's taking away from wrestling is selling. Talks about how she loved putting over Beth Phoenix and selling for her and how she's bringing that into her new coaching business. Uh oh, I feel like this episode is going to be a bunch of vague life coaching/self-help babble.

- Before last year, Candice had only read 1 full book in her life. The children's book Super Fudge when she was young. Now says she has read over 160 books thanks to audiobooks. Lilian says she listens to audiobooks too.

- During the time when Lilian, Torrie & Candice were doing Afterbuzz, they were in talks to do their own reality show. It sounds like they got fairly far into the process. But an idea from production turned the ladies off and they ultimately decided not to do it.

- There was some family talk about her life growing up. Her parents owned a bunch of bars in Wisconsin. Her father passed away when she was 2 years old. And her mom passed away when she was pursuing modeling, but before she got to WWE.

- Won a modeling contract in her senior year of high school via a contest she won when she was skating and she started getting offers to move to LA to model. At that point, she quit basketball which had been her passion at the time.

- Talks about insecurity with social media. Noticed that she would get more likes on bikini photos rather than photos of her family and what she's doing. Made her feel insecure and she would compare herself to the girls that had millions of followers.

- Her agent called her to let her know about the diva search. Not making it far really hurt her. She didn't pursue a contract after she got cut because she didn't think that was an option. A month later, she got offered a 3-year contract.

- Talks about being named the Most Improved by PWI in 2007. Says it felt good to be recognized. She would get to the building 2 hours early to train.

- Career highlight: Her program with Beth Phoenix. That's when she felt like she really began to understand the philosophy of wrestling matches. When working with Trish, she thought she could do what she was doing because of how easy Trish made it look. Feels like she didn't give Trish enough respect/credit at the time for how hard she worked. When she finally understood the philosophy of how to put matches together, she felt like the agents wanted to work with her & Beth more and help them with their matches.

- Arn Anderson told her to look at one person in the crowd during her matches. So when she was in holds, she'd pick one person out to look at and make a connection with to really sell it.

- Feels like it wasn't that hard to come back from the injuries. When she got the call about her release, she felt it coming. As soon as the call ended, she called her husband and asked him if he wanted to have babies. The timing was perfect and she had been smart with her money from wrestling, Go Daddy and Playboy.

- Got the Go Daddy gig from a nationwide audition. The audition was all improv. The night of her first Super Bowl commercial, she was sick but powered through it. She said the real controversy with the commercial was that Go Daddy had paid for two commercial slots during the Super Bowl for the same ad, but the NFL only aired it the first time because they thought it was too racy and was too reminiscent of the Janet Jackson nipplegate fiasco.

- Lilian brings up Candice's faith and how she reflects on her past sexual work. Candice says she doesn't believe religion has rules and that people push the rules on religion. Isn't proud of everything she's done in her career such as being a foot fetish model. She said it paid $500 an hour back when she was living in LA and helped her pay her rent. Also brings up doing a movie for Cinemax and said she wasn't told it was going to be a softcore porn movie, but that's how it ended up playing out.

- Candice is proud of her work with Playboy. She had done work for Playboy's supplemental magazines prior to her main WWE shoot. A makeup artist on one of those early shoots told her that if she works for Playboy's side magazines, she'd never be in the main magazine as that was how it usually worked.

- She then gets into plugging her life coaching/self-help program, which is wrestling inspired. Says she'll be more like a tag team partner than a coach.

I can’t decide if her thinking she’s a celebrity or exposing her borderline illiteracy is worse

They couldn't throw her in the battle royal at Evolution.. Seriously?

They should've called every women for that PPV.

She’s so memeworthy at this point.

I like Candice but based on the comments I’m gonna choose to skip this one. Unless there were tears, I live for Lilian making all her guests cry.

Her only reading one book - a children’s book at that - her whole life is just so fucking funny. 💀
