Whether she is leaving ROH and returning to WWE: “I never said that I was done with Ring Of Honor. I just said that WWE had contacted me... Ring Of Honor is still me home.”

On the rumors that her proposed return was nixed: '“I don't think that the Bella Twins could be so immature – I always found them to be very mature and business minded so I can't imagine them doing that. Unfortunately, we may never know the truth unless we get it from the horse's mouth. I try not to play too much into rumors because that can get you into a lot of trouble."

On apologizing to Kelly Kelly (a/k/a Barbie Blank) on Twitter: "“As you get older you start looking at things... you kinda leave all the stupidity of past angers behind. It's about making peace with everything that I've ever had a problem with in the past and I think that Barbie's extremely talented; I think that she's a fan favorite and I just don't want any negativity in my life anymore. I want to apologize for any time there was an argument.”

Paul Heyman taking her under his wing in OVW: "“Paul's a great friend of mine. I always say that I'm a Paul Heyman lady. That's really where my career began – when he started working with me, and really started believing in me is when I started believing in myself."

Other interview topics include Sara Del Rey training the next generation of WWE Divas, her relationship with Mike Bennett (including wedding details and their engagement story), how she got her start in wrestling via the Diva Search, developing the ditzy character that eventually became her trademark in WWE, Fit Finlay‘s influence on the Divas division, some of her favorite WWE memories, and where her Slammy Award is now.
