OSD Exclusive: Amy Weber Interview
The Royals were able to have an interesting and thought provoking question and answer interview session with former WWE Diva and Diva Search Contestant, Amy Weber. She answered our inquisitive inquiries with such openness and dignity. Amy related to us her experiences in the Diva Search, WWE, the wrestling business in general, and her life. She even put some rumors to rest about her release and how she was treated “by the boys”! Thanks once again to the very pleasant Amy Weber for joining us!
DISCLAIMER: THE VIEWS OF AMY WEBER MAY NOT REFLECT THE VIEWS OF THE STAFF. EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN RIGHTFUL OPINION TO ANY AND ALL MATTERS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IN THIS MATTER!
Marcella: Thank you so much for agreeing to answer some questions, Amy! You came into the WWE through the WWE Diva Search. How did you find out about the contest? What was that experience like?
Amy Weber: My agent told me about the contest. It was unlike anything that I had experienced before. It was fun and challenging.
Marcella: A lot of people have said very negative things about Carmella Decesare. In your honest opinion, what did you think of her?
Amy Weber: I do not like people who think that they are better than others and try to make themselves feel better by putting others down. She had zero respect for the wrestlers or the wrestling community.

Marcella: Did you make any close friends with your fellow Diva Searchers?
Amy Weber: Yes. I became friends with Joy until we got into our rift and Camille and the Twins.
Marcella: What were your thoughts on Christy Hemme winning the Diva Search?
Amy Weber: I thought she totally deserved to win.
Marcella: What was it like to secure a position as a Smackdown Diva?
Amy Weber: It was flattering when they asked me back to be a part of that show.
Marcella: How was working as an image consultant for JBL and his Cabinet of Orlando Jordan and the Bashman Bothers?
Amy Weber: I loved those guys. They were great and it felt like working with a bunch of big brothers. JBL is very smart and sweet.
Marcella: A loyal reader, Patrice, wanted to know what you thought about feuding with Joy Giovanni?
Amy Weber: It was interesting and I thought that it was a nice storyline for the show. Joy is a really cool girl so we have mended fences.
Marcella: What were some things you would have improved in this feud?
Amy Weber: I would have had us actually fight more in the ring.
Marcella: Were you disappointed at your win via count out against Joy?
Amy Weber: Yes.. I wanted to fight her for real. I had been training really hard.
Marcella: One of our readers, Diego, asked, during your time in WWE, did you ever make any good friends, and if so, who were they?
Amy Weber: Not great friends but really nice people that I will keep in touch with here and there.
Marcella: There have been a lot of rumors on why you left. Some people said you left on account of sexual harassment and other said that you left because of the pay. To clear these rumors up once and for all, what was the real reason behind your sudden departure?
Amy Weber: I left on account of pure harassment and being treated like a piece of dirt by some of the male wrestlers for no reason. I am actually a very sweet person. Yes, I played a “heel” for WWE but that is not my personality. I go out of my way to help others and a few of the guys made my decision to leave very easy. If they treated someone like that in the real world, they would be fired without question but are allowed to get away with nonsense in the WWE.
Marcella: One of our readers, Dylan, asked, did you ever want to become a full fledge wrestling Diva, and if so, which WWE Divas past or present would you of loved to have faced off against?
Amy Weber: I never had a desire to go to the school because I knew that my time with the WWE would not be a lifelong thing. I would have liked to have gotten in the ring with Victoria. She is a total badass.
Marcella: Mona, a reader of ours, wanted to know if you ever tune into WWE?
Amy Weber: I actually don’t but I did watch Wrestle Mania this past year.
Marcella: On May 28, 2008, you welcomed twins into this crazy world, First off, belated congratulations. How did you feel when you realized you were going to have twins?
Amy Weber: Scared and Excited.
Marcella: What does it feel like being a mother?
Amy Weber: It is the best job in the world. I am lucky that I can still pursue my career and be a Mom.
Marcella: Marc and I are huge fans of both of your songs (‘Ghost’ and ‘Wrapped Around’)! What can we expect from the already released debut album and is there any other musical projects coming along?
Amy Weber: The songs are already available for download on Itunes, CD Baby and Rhapsody. I plan to possibly shoot a music video and complete my album which has 3 songs on it now.
Marcella: What other projects (other than the music) have you been up to?
Amy Weber: I did two character voices for a 3D animated pilot and also shot a film that has been making the festival rounds. I just shot a show for USA Network and will continue to pursue my acting career as well as my hosting gigs and music.
