Rants of Billy Gunn, lover go viralWinnipeg woman posted details of ex-WWE star hookup

Deborah Simmons has two words for a famous, married pro wrestler she had an affair with.
The Winnipeg woman is in the middle of a sex scandal with former World Wrestling Entertainment star Monty (Kip) Sopp, which has apparently put a wedge between the cheating wrestler — best known for his role as (Badd Ass) Billy Gunn — and his wife.
Simmons, 24, has been relentless in uploading photos and taped phone conversations, in which Sopp goes into angry, profanity-laden rants, to the Internet after the relationship fizzled.
During one call, Sopp, 46, tells her: “You’ve accomplished what you’ve accomplished. You f---ing ruined my f---ing marriage, you ruined my f---ing life, now I’m f---ed.”
“I never wanted to ruin your marriage, I mean your life,” Simmons responds.
“Yes you did,” he says.
Later, Sopp says: “What we had between us was supposed to stay between us.”
The conversations have racked up more than 100,000 visits and caught the attention of gossip websites, including Radar Online.
“I really don’t have a full explanation for what I did. I just wanted out of the relationship,” Simmons said Thursday.
“Really, the only way I could think of getting out was for him to hate me.”
The former mistress said she will give it up if Sopp apologizes to her for what she claims was rotten treatment near the tryst’s end.
Simmons was single and aware Sopp is married.
She said she confirmed the affair to Sopp’s wife Paula, who found photos of the pair on Facebook.
In a Facebook message, Paula Heaney-Sopp denied threatening Simmons but admitted to sending her a text message wishing she would die in a fiery car crash.
Simmons claims Heaney-Sopp also sent a message reading “He’s all yours slut!”
Heaney-Sopp said Simmons is sore over being rejected and seeking “five minutes” of fame.
“I would be absolutely embarrassed and humiliated ... I would certainly not want the whole world to know that I was a ring rat and would go home with someone the first night I met them,” Heaney-Sopp said.
Heaney-Sopp claims Simmons harassed the couple.
Simmons said she isn’t seeking attention or trying to blackmail, and hasn’t received a dime for the story.
She said she met the Florida-based wrestler in April 2009 and their first romp occurred last March after a wrestling event hosted by a friend in Winnipeg.
She said the pair hooked up every couple weekends when Sopp returned to wrestle and acted like a normal couple in public, holding hands at dinner, movies and the beach.
“He didn’t try to hide anything. He was the one who got sloppy. It’s almost like he wanted to get caught,” Simmons said.
She said the fact he’s married bothered her but he claimed to be unhappy in his marriage and was “amazing” to her.
