I know that Ronda Rousey has been training with the Diaz brothers. I didn’t realize that they were also teaching her how to give an interview. Okay, so maybe Ronda has always been the female Nick Diaz when it comes to these sorts of things. But spending time with the real Nick Diaz has really made this take a turn for the hilarious.
Elie Seckbach caught up with Ronda Rousey at the ESPN Body Issue wrap-up party for an interview. At the beginning, Rousey is showing blatant hostility towards her interviewers over their apparent question about what celebrities she would like to fight [Ed Note: Come on, Nick. You mean you didn't teach her that it's their job to instigate fights quite a bit?]. After attempting to avoid the question, Rousey manages to think of a celebrity she’d like to fight: Kim “Famous For Sucking Dick” Kardashian.
In her own words:
I would beat the crap out of Kim Kardashian, actually. Any girl who is famous and idolized because she made a sex video with some guy and that’s all she’s known for.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t quite catch the next line in its entirety, but Ronda Rousey calls Kim Kardashian “famous for sucking dick.” Not that we personally find anything wrong with that.
Why is everyone slipping it under the cover now? “Oh yeah, she’s selling Skechers to thirteen year olds.” I don’t want some girl whose entire fame is based on a sex video to be selling Skechers to my thirteen year old sister. That’s the horrible kind of role model that I really do not want to be around, why I’m doing things like this: Because girls like Kim Kardashian are being pushed in my sister’s face, and it’s just not healthy. She shouldn’t even have role models like this. And that’s why I’m doing stuff like ESPN Body, because someone needs to do it, for god sakes.
She makes a great point in that rant: The thirteen year olds need someone who will be featured in tasteful nude photographs for magazines to sell them Skechers. Makes sense to me, at least. The rest of the interview she talks about her reaction to finding out she’s on the cover, and her diet.
So who thinks this Skechers sponsorship is something that needs to happen?
