During a recent Instagram Live, WWE stars Carmella and Corey Graves got candid about what does — and doesn’t — happen when the lights go out in lockdown.
“We’re an old-ass couple,” Carmella said, with 36-year-old Graves adding, “We actually went to bed.”
Graves continued to elaborate, stating he’s never related more to a panda in captivity than during the coronavirus crisis, veering the conversation in a quizzical direction.
As the WWE superstar continued, she indicated that her man didn’t mean anything by it.
“It got picked up by all these news sites and it turned into this huge thing,” she expressed. “And I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m great now that the entire world knows that you don’t want to have sex with me, so that’s cool.'”
“You know how people always complain that pandas don’t ever want to breed and mate when they’re in the zoo, cause they’re always just locked down and not into it? I feel like a panda in captivity,” Graves said, to which Carmella replied: “Thanks.”
“You’re basically saying that you don’t want to engage in sexual relations with me,” Carmella said. Graves then replied: “That’s not what I’m saying.”
While Graves, real name Matthew Polinsky, said he didn’t mean it negatively, simply referencing the environment, 32-year-old Carmella digressed.
At the time, Carmella said she was surprised by Corey’s claim as she was “throwing [her]self at him.” However, it appears she now understands the wrestling commentator’s point.
Per Carmella, Corey eventually realized his words were insensitive and apologized.
She added, “The internet blows everything up! So, he said one little thing—it was a joke—and then it turned into this whole thing. He’s like, ‘You think I don’t have sex with my girlfriend? Come on!’ But, you know how the internet works.”
As fans surely know, Carmella and boyfriend Corey Graves (born Matthew Polinsky) have launched a new podcast, titled Bare With Us, where they candidly discuss relationship issues.
