It is the most unlikely of pairings! A social media correspondent expecting to just snap a few photos at an ESPY gift suite and a professional woman’s wrestler. But, somehow we bonded over a few laughs, high fives and realizing that life is good after your 30’s (and for me a bit beyond that.) Lisa Marie Varon is a class act. I instantly thought she was fun, funny and truly engaging.
Not every celebrity who walks the red carpet wants to have a conversation – but Lisa Marie was much more considerate than many. We chatted for a long time! After I returned home from helping at the Celebrity Connected event, I did a little research on Ms. Varon. Or shall I say “Victoria” / “Tara”.
As a woman’s professional wrestler she earned several titles, including twice winning the WWE Woman’s Championship. Her resume includes bodybuilder, fitness competitor and entrepreneur. Make no mistake- the WWE enterprise is BIG BUSINESS – with over 650 million fans on social media alone! Learn more here.
I also discovered that Lisa Marie (who was named after THE Lisa Marie Presley) – continues to put fitness first. Despite having more than her share of bumps and bruises in her lifetime, she keeps healthy – I am sure part of her regimen is laughing daily. AND she is a professional speaker – another thing we have in common!
Enjoy the photos of Lisa Marie and I at the ESPY Celebrity Connected Gift Suite. She also is media savvy and tweets as @RealLisaMarie. She has a few more followers than me – but no biggie!!
Lisa Marie, so glad we met!
