Charlotte Flair Opens Up About Motherhood, Why She Said No To Total Divas & More...
Updated: Aug 14
In a recent interview on Maria Menounos' daytime show Better Together, WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair opens up on a number of topics, here are some highlights.
BABIES ON THE WAY? ANDRADE IS READY, BUT CHARLOTTE IS NOT!
"I was like, ‘Mannie, I want children,’ and he was like ‘OK! I'm ready!' Yes. He would be. But I just, I don’t know, when’s the right time? Am I selling myself short not trying to reach for bigger things.""Of course, I think about it, because of my age. But, being able to face Trish Stratus at Summerslam, and seeing her as a mother of two, and being consider the Greatest of All Time and have the best match on the show, makes me see, you don’t need to worry about when and why and where."
HOW MANY KIDS DO CHARLOTTE AND ANDRADE EVENTUALLY WANT?
"I definitely do [want kids]. I want the whole fairytale. I want three kids. Four Kids. I want all of it. It’s just, I don’t know how. This isn’t just it now, and then I go have kids! I really want to try to be an action figure in a movie, but I don’t know how to write it."
CHARLOTTE REFUSES TO DO REALITY TV FOR FEAR IT WILL COMPROMISE HER HOLLYWOOD ASPIRATIONS
"We talked about it. And, the only reason I was never really a part of Total Divas was because of the aspect of me and my dad, and trying to separate myself, and building my brand, and I just don’t know if I ever wanted Hollywood to take me seriously. I didn’t know if the reality route was the way to go, even though it’s such great exposure…For Mannie, he’s so new in his career. We both would rather him build his brand, and if that’s something we want to do in 2 or 3 years, for sure! But that’s very hard when you’re trying to build your own brand, but that’s hard when you want to separate yourself from your spouse or your parents…I would never want people to go, ‘well her brand relies on her father.’"
WHICH MARVEL CHARACTER DOES CHARLOTTE WANT TO PLAY ON THE BIG SCREEN? HINT: IT'S A VILLAIN!
"I just finished all the Marvels in order! It took 3 weeks. After watching the last 22, if I was playing a bad guy, I’d love to be Thor’s sister, Hela, and have a whole film telling her story."
CHARLOTTE CLAPS BACK AT THE CRITICS WHO CLAIM SHE'S OVEREXPOSED!
"The issue is, a lot of what has helped me in my career is, I’m consistent. Maybe I’ll never be as high, or as low, but I’m able to stay in the game always. I never give people a chance or an opportunity to miss me, so either the audience takes me for granted or they don’t. I think that adds to the ‘she’s a Flair, she’s shoved down our throat.’ It’s so hard for people to see past 'Charlotte’s always in the picture,' but this isn’t HER storyline. She’s a tool in the story they’re trying to build."
CHARLOTTE REGRETS COMING TO THE WWE LATE: "I'M IN A LOCKER ROOM FULL OF 20 YEAR OLDS!"
"Man, why did I figure out life so late. I’m in a locker full of 20 year olds. By no means am I comparing careers, like they have a long way to go at the company. But I’m just like, man I wish at 24…I just had no idea what was going on! I wasn’t put together!"
WHAT IS THE MOST COMMON MISCONCEPTION ABOUT CHARLOTTE FLAIR?
"My last name. And I’m always in the title picture. But if you look at my last 6 title reigns, it was just, they weren't for me! So that’s the misconception, because I’m always in people’s face."
