Ariane Andrew (formerly known as the WWE’S Cameron) from Total Divas guested on “The Tomorrow Show with Keven Undergaro” and elaborated on why she doesn’t date black men (or wrestlers), why she didn’t like John Cena’s proposal to Nikki Bella and more.

Ariane elaborates on her comments that she doesn’t date black guys:

“What is disturbing is instead of people taking the time to actually listen to what I said, it’s like, there were articles saying, ‘she refuses,’ which refuse never came out of my mouth ‘to date black guys because she wants cute babies.’ First off, lets just address I’m a black woman and I love the skin that I’m in and I wouldn’t change it for the world. And I feel like I love being a black woman because, you know, I do sometimes feel like things are harder but it’s like, I’m breaking barriers. And it’s like, yes, I am a woman and I’m a black woman and I’m fucking getting it…So for people to say self hate, that’s crazy. And to address what I said. He asked me if I like white guys. I said, ‘actually I love white guys. I actually don’t date black guys.’ I never said that I refuse to date black guys. To me at the end of the day it doesn’t matter who you are, color or whatever. To me it’s if we click we click, but I have a preference and what’s wrong with that?…To address the whole part, the mixed baby situation. No matter who I marry, whether their black whether their white, whatever. My child is going to be beautiful because I’m going to find them beautiful. You would think that I said, you know, ‘black babies are ugly.’ People are like ‘oh you’re a bed wench, you’re a coon, you self hate, you’re saying that black babies are ugly.’ I’m like when did this ever come out of my mouth?…

When asked what it is about white men that attracts her to them:

“I mean, we all have a preference. So I guess that’s kind of like a certain swagger. I’m very sassy and I’m very, you know, I guess I have a huge personality. And I have tried dating black guys before and it’s like they be like, ‘oh girl, you too much.’ And I’m like ‘oh, what’s too much?’ But I’ve also dated other races. It’s just, I guess, a preference thing. I don’t know. I think too, because I grew up, when I went to a private school I was like one of the only bla—. So I think being around that environment also has probably something to do with it. Because it wasn’t very, like I guess you could say, diverse.”

Ariane bumped heads with Brodus a LOT. When asked if any of the WWE guys let her down, she said:

“You know it’s funny, like I said we’re, when you get to know these people it’s, it’s like a brother and sisterhood. Brodus and I bumped heads so many times…yeah it’s, it’s so crazy. Um, you know, I’m very outspoken and I say what I want and to some people I don’t, I don’t think people like the truth and so sometimes people really taken back by that. You know, Naomi is very chill and kind of go with the flow and just sometimes we would you know, Nao–would be chilling and I be like ‘no like we need to do this’ or ‘I don’t want to eat here tonight‘ and it’s just like we’ve always had that love, hate relationship. But at the end of the day he has a sp–you know a special place in my heart, I just spoke to him maybe three months ago and I check on him.”

Ariane wishes Nikki and Jonn’s engagement wasn’t done at Wrestlemania:

“I wish it wasn’t done at Mania…I feel like everyone knew it was gonna happen. You know, I feel like I’m a person that it’s like, I wanna be surprised, not be like, oh, you know what, I knew that; but I’m very happy for her, because I know that girl has been wanting, you know, him to marry her for, for some time. So it’s like, you know what, I wish them, I wish them the best, especially because, you know, he said he was never going to get married and never wanna have kids, and she, she stuck around so, you know, hopefully everything goes well and it seems like they’re happy…I feel like because it makes it so much of a cliche that people were, like, especially with the storyline with Maurice and Miz bash, and it’s like, you know there’s going to be a payoff. So you know at WrestleMania that it’s gonna happen. And so especially for, you know, the IWC community and like, the W–, you know that they know that that’s going to happen so I wish there was, like a, a spin, or at least maybe if they lost the match and then got the, I don’t know, somewhere that wasn’t, like, the biggest stage. But, I mean, on the flip side, that’s dope, because that’s the biggest; it’s like, you know, that’s the Super Bowl for wrestling.”
