She expected them to be more supportive...
In an interview with Hidden Remote, Rosa Mendes spoke about tension she had with the rest of the Total Divas cast. Here are highlights:
On how she joined the cast: "Well, you know I've been off for about a year and a half dealing with some personal issues. I've been in the business for about eight years, so I didn't expect it and it came out of the blue. To be cast on Total Divas is a big promotion, its a really big deal. I don't think the other Divas expected me to not only come back, but to come back as a Total Diva, so it kind of threw everyone off guard. Not only that, I'm in the best shape I've ever been in my life. So it was like, I get back in the locker room; I'm on Total Divas; I'm looking the best I've ever looked and it kind of threw everyone off. I feel so grateful and blessed that I got this opportunity. [Total Divas is] going to open a lot of doors for me and I'm really excited."
On what people will learn about her: "I'm an open book. All of the skeletons will be outside of the closet, I'm not holding anything back. What you see is what you get. When I'm feeling something, I say it; if I want to walk around naked I'm going to walk around naked. You're going to see the real Rosa Mendes and I'm really, really excited for the WWE Universe and fans of Total Divas to see that side of me."
On the cast having friction and if she has problems with anyone: "Well yeah, I mean I expected everyone to be welcoming to me. They know I went through some hard stuff, so I expected everyone to be supportive. I came back and I didn't get that from everybody. It kind of sucked, but you know I have people who are my friends, I'm not by myself. I was just really surprised by some of the girls."
