Diva Kelly Kelly spoke with TampaBay.com to promote the Ugly Sweater Christmas Party at Jackson’s Bistro in Tampa, Florida this weekend. Kelly says she was looking at working for ESPN before WWE found her: “I was in my first year of college and wanted to be an anchorwoman for ESPN. I love sports and I had an athletic background. When I got the phone call from my agent who said, “The WWE called me and they are interested in you.” I was like, “Oh, my God,” because I used to watch it when I was younger. I said, “Okay, let’s try it.” They kicked my butt for a week. I was throwing up. I had bruises all over.”
