The relationship between Carmella and Corey Graves has started in a rocky manner as the latter’s former wife claimed Mella to be a home-wrecker. Fans also got involved in the matter and started shaming on the former SmackDown Women’s Champion that created complete chaos. The incident was also noted in the bygone edition of Total Divas and showed how it led to a miscommunication between the duo.
Thankfully, Carmella and Graves made their relationship work, and going by their PDA sessions on social media, we can tell they are very happy. Relationships can be hard, especially when the two people involved work in WWE. But it seems this couple is setting an example for others.
During a recent Reddit Q&A session, Carmella was asked about how she manages balances personal and professional life with Corey Graves. It hasn’t been easy for them due to their busy travel schedules. The COVID-19 situation made things better, however as the two of them had to travel less which has helped things.
“It hasn’t been easy! We’ve been figuring it out as we go. Luckily we moved in together in December and we’ve had a lot of downtime as of late so we’re able to be this normal couple. We have coffee together every morning and are usually in bed by 8 pm! Hahaha, We’re very boring!”
We have not seen much of Carmella on SmackDown TV ever since she was rumoredly affected by the Coronavirus. However, that claim appeared to be false. She’s not on the title picture for a long time. At one point, WWE intended to use her in the women’s tag team title picture alongside Naomi which didn’t work out well, too.
Carmella has been going through a whole lot of different characters during her run in the WWE. She started as the Princess Of Staten Island character that made her the only two-time Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match winner in WWE history. Later, she defeated Charlotte Flair twice during her reign as the SmackDown Women’s Champion.
Speaking about her evolving character in WWE, Carmella said the following,
“I don’t have an acting background (unless you count the plays and musicals I did as a kid/in high school.) I love being able to show different sides of my character. I never want to be stuck in one particular role. It never gets old and I’m allowed to adapt to whatever situation I find myself in.”
