Maria Kanellis Says She's Not A Failure After Leaving WWE, Latest From Trish Stratus

- Maria Kanellis has published an article on addressing the topic of life after WWE.

In the article, Kanellis responds to critics who associate her with failure since she has not appeared on national television in over four years. The former Playboy says she is content with current situation.

"I'm now happy to be moving forward with my life but I feel as if WWE fans aren't ready for me to do so. They want to hear more about the Bella twins debacle. They want me to insult the girls that are on Total Divas. But, the truth is I have a lot more on my plate that what those chicks are up to or the happenings at WWE. Also, I don't stay angry for that long. It's bad karma and there are too many beautiful, positive people in my life to worry about the people that hurt me," wrote Kanellis.

"I don't know what the answer is to make people understand my main goal in life has nothing to do with twins or to make people understand LIFE is good even without WWE. I will tell you this: when fans tell me I failed, it saddens me. I am sure that so many former WWE wrestlers feel this exact way. Because our lives aren't over. I'm not dead. And I most certainly am not a failure. What is so great about WWE? The fame? The money? Or the traveling around the world? I guess all of it is great but to me it was just five and a half years. To me it was not the greatest or the worst experience in my life. I've lived for 25 and a half years without WWE and I would like to live at least 70 more. So, in the grand scheme of things my time at WWE is just a fabliau in my life and to ruminate on it is to live in verisimilitude."
