Mandy Rose’s time as part of Total Divas was especially difficult for the future NXT Women’s Champion, Rose has revealed.
Rose was part of the reality show’s fifth season which ran from January to April 2016, and was joined by the Bellas, Eva Marie, Natalya, Rosa Mendes, Alicia Fox, and Paige.
On a recent edition of the “Power Alphas” podcast, Rose spoke about her time on Total Divas and compared it to her time on Tough Enough. She said,
“[On Total Divas] I just was in a place where I didn’t feel like me. I didn’t know where to go. I didn’t have anyone. I didn’t know who was on my side. I felt very alone. Even when it came to producers and people behind the scenes, I just felt like they were going to always put the other girls first because, and rightfully so, that’s fine, but I felt like no one was in my favor.
“I went from Tough Enough that I was like, I was a big shot over there. I felt like, you know, I gained a lot of respect. The big boss saw me and he liked what I was doing and I felt like the producers were really on my side but then like when it came to Total Divas, I felt like people were trying to destroy me.”
Rose was released from WWE in December 2022 due to the explicit content shared on her website. While she has discussed a possible return to the ring, it is yet to happen.
