Terri Runnels

Terri Lynne Boatright Runnels (born October 5, 1966) is a former World Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Federation professional wrestling manager, television host and occasional wrestler. Runnels began her professional wrestling career in World Championship Wrestling as Miss Alexandra York, manager of the York Foundation. After six years, she joined the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), where she worked for eight years. She was also one of the first WWE Divas.

In the early years of her career with the WWF, she managed her real-life husband Dustin Runnels (known on-screen as Goldust) and was a member of the Pretty Mean Sisters alliance. She also managed both The Hardy Boyz and Edge and Christian following the Terri Invitational Tournament in 1999. Subsequently, she had an on-screen rivalry with The Kat, managed The Radicalz stable, and worked as a host and interviewer. During her time with the WWF, she briefly held the WWE Hardcore Championship, her only championship during her career. After leaving the wrestling business, Runnels became involved in philanthropic work.

She dated Brian Pillman in 1990 while they were both in WCW. In 1993, she married Dustin Runnels, whom she met while they were both working for WCW, taking his last name as her own. They have a daughter, Dakota, who was born in 1994. Dustin Runnels strained relationship with his father Dusty Rhodes caused problems in their marriage, and Terri alleges that Dusty spread rumors about her that included infidelity and gold-digging. The couple divorced in 1999 after six years of marriage. Years after the divorce, they were able to have a "better relationship".

She was briefly married again in 2002 to a life coach, whom she met when her mother convinced her to hire him. They dated for two weeks before he proposed; they were married six months later, and the marriage ended two months after that. At the wedding, Ray Traylor (also known as the Big Bossman), her friend and traveling partner, gave her away. In 2003 she began a relationship with Tyree Clowe, a US soldier 15 years her junior. The couple remained together for over 5 years.

I wonder if this is how she met the US soldier that was 15 years younger than her?

Terri began dating former professional wrestler New Jack in 2009. Jack professed his love for her in an interview with host Fat Man After Dark on the Future Endeavors wrestling radio show and described some of the pitfalls, even today, of a mixed race relationship. As of July 2011 the couple is no longer together.

In August 2011, A Florida judge ordered Jack to stop selling nude photographs of Runnels. Runnels filed suit accusing Jack of making libelous comments about her and requested that a court ban him from distributing sexually explicit photographs of her. Jack said that he took the photos, that they belonged to him and he should be free to pass them on to whoever he pleases. A judge in Sanford, Fla., temporarily banned Jack from distributing photographs of Runnels ahead of a hearing.
