Mickie James has conducted an interview with website NorthJersey.com to promote Tuesday’s ECW and Smackdown tapings. Below are some of the highlights:
Favorite Diva to work with: Probably my favorite on any given night would be Beth Phoenix. She’s tough and she’s strong, but I know that I can go in there … on any given night and we could tear the house down.
On whether or not she was hesitant to go through the “Piggie James” storyline: Well, no, because I don’t think I’m heavy, for one. I’m only 130, 135 pounds. But at the same time, no, because it’s entertainment. Is it my favorite? I don’t really know. I guess we’ll have to see where it goes. It depends on the payoff. We’re telling stories and we’re building emotional things where people can actually connect with it. And I think that a lot of women in general, society has put on this thing where every female should look like Paris Hilton who is 6-foot something, and 100 pounds. That’s not how America is and that’s not how the real women in the world look.
Breaking into social networking: I’ll tell you what happened. I flipped out finally. I’ve been pretty angry with so many people posing [as me]. Fans come to me and they’ll be like, ‘Oh I talked to you on MySpace all the time.’ And I’m like, ‘No you don’t.’ I have given this speech that I don’t have a Facebook or MySpace a thousand times … the reason why I haven’t gotten one is because it’s beyond me as to why all these people can pose as me on a forum, but my manager told me — she pretty much made me — she said I had to get something. She’s trying to work me into getting a Facebook and a MySpace just for my own personal [needs], ’cause I’m also working on a country music album right now.
