About the creator
I was told I should write a little bio on myself, so here are the Cliffs Notes:
My name is Leah Van Dale. I grew up in a very small town in central Massachusetts. My mom put me into dance class when I was three years old and I never really stopped! I just love performing for an audience; it has been my passion from a very young age.
I cheered for the New England Patriots from 2007-2010 (yes I was at the Super Bowl for the infamous David Tyree helmet catch, no I don’t want to talk about it) and I was a Laker Girl for the 2010-2011 season.
I signed with the WWE in 2013 and am currently on Smackdown Live as “Carmella.” I made history as the first Ms. Money in the Bank and I’m a former Smackdown Women’s Champion. You can also catch me on the E! reality series “Total Divas.” (It’s weird talking about myself like this. Wow I’m so cool look at these cool things I did!)
When I’m not on the road (rarely) I love being with my family. My family is everything to me. Italian Sunday dinners were a tradition filled with pasta and red wine. Everyone had wine with their dinner, even as kids! Perhaps this is where my wine obsession stems from. Either way, I believe wine is the perfect way to bring everyone together. Or it’s the perfect way to unwind after a stressful day. Just please drink responsibly!!
Oh, and I also have a bachelor’s degree in marketing. I never thought that thing would come in handy. Guess I was wrong. ;)
