I look in the mirror and my nose is too big, my skin's not healthy, and looking at everyone else around me, I look nothing like them.

After Top ModelEdit

In 2005, Michelle, a wrestler, was asked to be on WWE Smackdown which was being filmed in Indiana that night, where Michelle is from. Wrestler Melina called her gourgeous and beautiful and said Even though you didn't win Top Model, I thought you would've at least finished better than you did. Michelle started taking that as an insult, but Melina made it known that she was like a celebrity and that she was a C-list, even a B-list celebrity and that she couldn't hang out with her, but maybe with Gary Coleman, or Danny Bonaduce. Michelle then, lost her cool, and slapped Melina, throwing the microphone out of her hands. Melina began to choke Deighton, until the Mexicools came to help out. The Mexicools began to beat up Melina and her crew. Melina made her way out of the ring, while the Mexicools continued to beat up her male co-horts. Melina and her men left, while Michelle and the Mexicools danced on stage in victory.
