… Went to Jail for DUIs

Former WWE superstar Eva Marie says she is, and always will be, an alcoholic … and her disease almost cost her everything before she was able to come to terms with it.
“I will be an alcoholic for the rest of my life … and admitting that truth saved my life,” Eva wrote in an essay for InStyle.
Eva says she’s been sober 5 years, but hit “rock bottom” prior to coming to WWE — serving 3 months behind bars for multiple DUIs, and struggling in her personal and professional life.
Thankfully, the “Total Divas” star was able to enter into a 12-step program to get clean … and says she still attends AA meetings every week to avoid falling off the wagon.
Eva’s killing it as a fashion designer and fitness model these days … but says she’s still in a constant battle with alcoholism — “This fairytale life is always one drink away from shattering.”
