Mandy Rose was interviewed by TV Series Hub this week to discuss her fitness app, among other things. She also talked about what made her try out for WWE Tough Enough, her modeling career, the creation of her character, the WWE schedule, Total Divas and more.
Mandy has been one of the central characters on SmackDown in recent weeks because of her role as Otis’ new girlfriend and feud with Sonya Deville and Dolph Ziggler.
Mandy and Otis have been playing up their “relationship” on WWE TV and on social media and she says her boyfriend is fine with it.
When asked what her boyfriend thinks, she said, “My boyfriend doesn’t have an issue with it. It’s all a storyline and entertainment. If he got jealous of this, or if any guy did, it wouldn’t work out, honestly.”
Sonya Deville has wanted to do a lesbian angle with Mandy on TV but it doesn’t look like WWE is headed in that direction since Sonya turned on Mandy this week on SmackDown. Now it looks like WWE is building towards Mandy and Otis vs. Sonya and Dolph for the Money In The Bank pay-per-view. That match was originally scheduled for WrestleMania but plans changed to Otis vs. Dolph.
Mandy also revealed that she pitched the storyline with Otis to Vince McMahon: “Otis always was around in NXT and posting pics of me and talking about how much he liked me. In a cute way, not a creepy way. This continued on and I thought it would be great if this became a storyline, especially once Otis entered Wrestlemania. I actually went to Vince McMahon myself and pitched the idea and he loved it.”
Mandy has been keeping busy when she’s not on WWE TV. She recently launched the “Fit with Mandy” app aimed to make health and fitness easy and accessible for men and women worldwide.
