Candice Michelle biography (bio):
Candice Michelle Beckman-Ehrlich is better known as Candice Michelle or just Candice, is an American professional wrestler, actress, and model, currently signed to World Wrestling Entertainment wrestling on its RAW brand, where she is the current WWE Women's Champion.
Beckman grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At 16 she won a modeling competition at her local skating rink. She later moved to Los Angeles, California to become a professional model and actress. She studied Theater Arts at Santa Monica College and had on camera acting and Meisner technique training at The Piero Dusa Acting Studio. It was during this time that Beckman adopted the surname Michelle. She appeared in numerous bodybuilding and car magazines such as FLEX and Lowrider Magazine, as well as being named Cyber Girl of the Week in the June 2002 issue of Playboy. Michelle also worked as a foot fetish model, under the pseudonym Mackenzie Montgomery. Michelle made appearances on television programs such as Party of Five and 7th Heaven, as well as appearing in such films as Tomcats and A Man Apart. She also starred in a softcore role for the HBO series Hotel Erotica.
World Wrestling Entertainment
In July 2004, Michelle auditioned to be a contestant for World Wrestling Entertainment's RAW Diva Search. Despite not being chosen to be in the final ten, she was hired by the company under the gimmick of a makeup artist. She competed on RAW in several Diva contests, including lingerie fashion shows and limbo contests, until the end of the year.
On June 30, 2005 Candice was traded to SmackDown! where she became involved in a feud between Torrie Wilson and Melina. On July 24, Candice made her pay-per-view debut at The Great American Bash where she served as the Special Guest Referee for the Bra and Panties match between Wilson and Melina. She was then moved to RAW in a trade along with Wilson. They turned heel by taunting 2005 Diva Search winner Ashley Massaro and joined forces with fellow RAW Diva Victoria. The three-Diva stable became known as Ladies in Pink (later Vince's Devils, a play on the Charlie's Angels television series and films). They continued feuding with Massaro until Trish Stratus returned from injury to help Massaro retaliate against Vince's Devils. In November, Candice signed on to pose for the April 2006 issue of Playboy.
Also during this time, Candice began a gimmick where she walked down to the ring carrying a wand and acting like a princess. She also got her first shot at the WWE Women's Championship in a Fulfill Your Fantasy Battle Royal Match at Taboo Tuesday, before being eliminated by Ashley Massaro.
In January, Candice appeared at New Year's Revolution in the first ever Bra and Panties Gauntlet match, but was eliminated by Maria. After winning a number one contender's Diva battle royal on RAW, Candice would get her first singles WWE Women's Championship match, but lost to then-champion Trish Stratus on February. After the match, Candice slapped Wilson, blaming her for the loss.
Vince's Devils later broke up when Wilson turned face after Candice and Victoria turned on her during Candice's Playboy cover unveiling. This feud led to a match at WrestleMania 22 in which both Playboy cover girls would compete in a Playboy Pillow Fight. Wilson won the match, but the feud continued sporadically in backstage segments where Candice was Vince McMahon's "sex slave".
Candice appeared in both Saturday Night's Main Events on NBC in 2006. On the March 18 episode, she and Victoria lost to Stratus and Mickie James in a tag team match. On the July 15 program, Candice was eliminated in the first round of a Diva bull riding competition which was won by Michelle McCool.
On the July 17 edition of RAW, Candice was the Special Guest Referee during a tag team match of Stratus and Wilson against Victoria and Mickie James. Mickie James entered the match without being tagged in so Candice threw her out of the ring. Afterwards, Victoria tried to clothesline Candice but she ducked out of the way, allowing Stratus to hit the Stratusfaction for the victory. This incident resulted in Candice turning face.
After Unforgiven, Candice began a short feud with Lita, winning a match against her the next night on RAW. She ended up losing her second match against Lita the next week, after interference from Edge, in the first round of the WWE Women's Championship tournament. She later competed in the first ever Extreme Strip Poker segment on ECW on October 10, representing RAW.
On the November 27 edition of RAW, during the Diva battle royal, Candice suffered a (legit) broken nose when Victoria kicked her in the face. She had surgery on November 30 to repair her deviated septum.
Candice returned at New Year's Revolution on January 7, 2007 when she went to the ring with Maria to fight off Melina as she tried to interfere in the WWE Women's Championship match between then-champion Mickie James and Victoria. Candice made her in-ring return on January 22 when she and Mickie James defeated Victoria and Melina in a tag team match with Candice scoring the pinfall.
Candice then re-kindled her feud with Melina when she claimed in her blogs that all Playboy cover models were not capable of fighting her in the ring. Candice took offense to this and challenged Melina to a Bra and Panties Match, which she lost. Weeks later, Candice began picking up wins in tag matches that pitted her with Mickie James against Victoria and Melina. She also picked up several wins against the latter two in singles matches that accumulated into the first ever Pudding Match at One Night Stand, which Candice also won, defeating Melina. At Vengeance, Candice challenged and successfully defeated Melina to capture her first WWE Women's Championship, and becoming the first ever WWE Diva Search contestant to win the women's title.
