Allison Glock of espnW interviewed Ronda Rousey earlier this month, and the conversation produced a few funny quotes. For example, we now know that high-school-aged Ronda Rousey was mean as hell, courtesy of her friend Marina Shafir:
AG: How did you guys meet?
MS: You didn't like me.
RR: I liked you.
MS: No, you didn't. I complimented you on your Sponge Bob laces, on all sorts of things. Every time I tried to speak with you, you were a b——.
RR: I just had a b——- demeanor. Listen, the first time she tried to talk to me, I was listening to my music, and I'm really into my music. And she taps me and says, "That's Rage Against the Machine." And I'm like, "You made me stop listening to Rage Against the Machine so you could tell me that I was listening to Rage Against the Machine?"
MS: Such a b——.
Rousey might have a thing for Bill Maher:
AG: What is the last television show you binge-watched?
RR: [The HBO documentary series] "Vice." I watched all of the first two seasons. And I like Bill Maher a lot.
AG: Have you been on his show?
RR: No, I'm not that cool. There's a lot of pressure on that panel. Some people, they just bomb. I don't want to look dumb in front of Bill Maher. [Pauses for a beat.] Is he single?
AG: I think he is aggressively single.
RR: Really? He's got that Richard Gere, grey-haired sexy look.
She also wants to have kids at some point:
AG: Do you want to have kids some day?
RR: Definitely. I'm an ovarian goldmine. I can't waste these genes.
