Maryse Mizanin (/məˈriːs/; née Ouellet; born January 21, 1983) is a Canadian-American professional wrestler, professional wrestling manager, actress, businesswoman, reality star and glamour model currently signed to WWE under the ring name Maryse, where she performs on the SmackDown brand.
After spending years modeling, including winning Miss Hawaiian Tropic Canada in 2003, Ouellet was hired by the professional wrestling promotion WWE in August 2006, after she participated in the WWE Diva Search competition. She spent time in Ohio Valley Wrestling and Florida Championship Wrestling, WWE’s developmental territories, before being assigned to the SmackDown brand in 2008. In December 2008, Maryse won her first WWE Divas Championship and held it for seven months, making her the third longest reigning WWE Divas Champion in WWE history. In April 2009, she was drafted to the Raw brand, and won the WWE Divas Championship for the second time in February 2010, making her the first wrestler to have held the championship on more than one occasion and the only woman in history to win the title via tournament. In mid-2010, she became the co-host of NXT and the manager of Ted DiBiase, prior to her release from the company in October 2011. In April 2016, she returned to the company and became the manager of her husband The Miz, managing him to three Intercontinental Championship reigns.
In late-2011, she announced plans for a clothing and jewelry line called House of Maryse, and later began working as a realtor. In November 2016, she joined the cast of the reality show Total Divas, and appeared in the show’s sixth and seventh seasons, which initially aired on the E! Network. On January 8, 2018, WWE announced a spin-off show titled Miz & Mrs., which stars Ouellet in a lead role. The show aired on the USA Network on July 24, 2018, and has been renewed for a second season. She also serves as executive producer, along with her husband The Miz.
