A former WWE Diva Search contestant, Weber became a heel diva for World Wrestling Entertainment's SmackDown! brand, with a gimmick as John "Bradshaw" Layfield's image consultant in The Cabinet.[6] During her time in The Cabinet, she feuded with Joy Giovanni, and actually defeated her by forfeit in Weber's only match. She resigned from WWE in February 2005 because of her allegations of harassment from some of the wrestlers.[6] She later stated that she "wasn't happy with the pay and I wasn't happy with the 'frat house' like environment".[1] To explain her departure, JBL stated she had been "fired" for accidentally firing a sleeping dart at him the previous week while he was clowning around with an inflatable dinosaur. The dart was actually intended for JBL's No Way Out 2005 opponent, The Big Show.[7]
