Maria Kanellis Comments On Perceived Shots At The Bella Twins



Maria Kanellis has responded to a report posted earlier this week regarding her perceived shots at Nikki and Brie Bella’s during AfterBuzzTV.com’s weekly post-show for Raw. The former WWE Diva says she is not taking personal digs at the twin duo, but rather, their villainous television characters.

Kanellis explained on Twitter, “Afterbuzz for Raw is a show about a show. Just like I did Afterbuzz for Dancing with the Stars, Borgias, Project Runway, ect….. We make jokes, poke fun, show respect, educate, and talk about news and gossip. No one forces you to watch. The Bellas play bad girls on tv as such we talk about them as bad girls. It’s a show. But thank you for talking about it so much. All press is good press. And I repeat, wrestlers are the most talented entertainers on the planet.”

Kanellis posted a similar explanation on Facebook, but added that she would never sacrifice her strong moral values in order to “get ahead.”

She wrote, “Afterbuzz for Raw on afterbuzztv.com is a show about a show. We talk about story lines, wrestling, gossip, news, superstars, divas, fashion, and we have guests. Are we funny? Yes. Do we make jokes? Of course. Is there inside info? Sure. Do we get nasty? Sometimes. All of my co-hosts have their own beliefs, style and personality. We have view points that differ. I was given a voice and I have strong beliefs. I don’t believe in authority or following a norm. I have sacrificed a lot because of my strong morals. But one thing I will never sacrifice is my values. I will not get ahead just because I play the game. Even though I know how. I will succeed on merit and talent. Or I will fail and failure is just another step towards success. Passion is my motivation….. Rock it.”
