The following are highlights of a new VOC Nation interview with Dana Adiva, who was one of the stars of MTV’s “True Life: I’m Too Beautiful” and “Life on the Road.”
On filming MTV “True Life”: “I filmed with them for about 8 months, and then I also did the “Life on the Road” follow up show. A lot of the stuff they filmed wasn’t used, but I still had a lot of fun.”
On how she came to love pro wrestling: “Since the day I was born, my dad (Diceman Ronnie Vegas) had me on the road with him. I grew up meeting tons of people (being at the shows). I always wanted to be one of the divas. I love wrestling. At first I didn’t tell my dad because I wanted it to be a surprise for him, but it’s so much fun for him to have his daughter in professional wrestling.”
On getting ahead in entertainment: “I get a lot of negative comments when I go out. If (people) want to hate me, go ahead, I don’t care. I have a lot of people that look up to me at the same time. I never got an agent, I did everything on my own my whole life; with modeling, wrestling, and being on TV, I didn’t have any help. It was just me, my family, and my friends.”
On her aspirations as a performer: “I want to wrestle. That’s my biggest goal right now. I’m really focusing on training. I was valeting and managing for a while, but I really just want to be in that ring. I have so much heart and passion (for the business).”
On working in WWE or TNA one day: “I really want to be in the WWE or TNA, but I don’t want to go until I’m ready. When (my trainers) tell me I’m ready, I will go after it 100 percent.”
On her prediction for the WrestleMania XXX main event: “I’m going for Randy Orton. He’s covered in tattoos; he’s hot. I’m a big Randy Orton fan, I always have been.”
