WWE star Mandy Rose recently spoke with Digital Spy to hype her new 12-week exericse app entitled "Fit With Mandy." During the interview, the Fire and Desire member spoke about appearing on the Total Divas show while she was still training as a wrestler for NXT.
I'm super blessed to have been able to have been on that show. It was the beginning of my career so I got thrown into it, which was cool. But the pros and cons of it were basically that I barely knew anyone and I had to fight for my own but I was also able to showcase my personality and who I am before the WWE Universe even knew me. It was an awesome experience and a lot of the women were super nice to me, but it was definitely a challenge as well. I had to balance filming, being on the road, and then coming back to NXT where I only had a couple of days to train. So it was definitely a challenge for me to balance the schedule.
Rose also touches on her off-screen relationship with Heavy Machinery's Otis, whom she's been working with on a weekly basis on Friday Night SmackDown. The The 29-year old states that Otis is exactly the same off-screen as he is on TV, and comments on how quickly their love-story angle got invested in by fans.
He's exactly who he is on TV. He's always been like that ever since his NXT days.
He'd walk around the Performance Center and he'd call me 'peach' and 'Mandy candy'. The whole 'Mandy candy' and 'peach' thing started in NXT a couple of years ago, it was always really funny, he’d even cut promos on me.
