WWE Total Divas is only in it’s second season and has become the E! network’s second highest rated series. The show’s success might be blamed on the escalating and never ending drama between the gorgeous cast members. Eva Marie, WWE’s latest female wrestler has garnered a fan base of her own. Her stunning looks, signature red hair, and sometimes conniving behavior might explain her success. But there is more to Evan than just her character.
Eva Marie was born Natalie Nelson in Beverly Hills. Her parents are Mexican and Italian American, which explains her exotic features. In school she was a star athlete playing varsity soccer in high school. Her athletic abilities translated into a partial scholarship at California State University where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Eva also is extremely artistic and says painting and pastels as her preferred artistic media. She earned an associate’s degree in Art at Diablo Valley College.
After two years of training and development by the WWE she was officially added to the roster in 2013. In an episode of Raw she accompanied her former mentor and Total Divas co-star Natalya to the ring during a match. Marie made her televised in-ring debut on the October 7 edition of Raw, teaming with JoJo and Natalya to defeat Alicia Fox, Aksana and Rosa Mendes in an six diva tag-team match. After her career took off she married her boyfriend Jonathon Coyle. They had only been dating for two months before the engagement.
Her beauty has helped her expand her wrestling career to include endorsements and modeling. She has appeared on several editorials including Maxim magazine. Eva Marie was paid $20,000 for a Skechers endorsement and $15,000 for Red Carpet clothing. Marie has even appeared on several television shows with small acting roles on Entourage, 90210 and CSI: New York.
