Amy Polinsky dropped bombs in 2019 when she announced that her then-husband Corey Graves was cheating on her with the WWE superstar Carmella. Polinsky dropped the bomb in a later-deleted Instagram post and accused Graves and Carmella of an affair. Both Graves and Carmella dismissed the rumors with Carmella going on record to say that she would never destroy somebody’s home. But as far as Polinsky was concerned, the marriage was done and dusted. In this article, we will bring everything to know about the ex-wife of Corey Graves.
Who is Amy Polinsky?
Amy Polinsky is an American fitness trainer, bodybuilder, and former special education teacher. She rose to fame following her marriage to WWE superstar Corey Graves.
Amy Danielle Schneider was born on the 16th of January 1980 in Grove City, Pennsylvania, USA. American by nationality and Caucasian by ethnicity, Amy’s birth puts her under the zodiac sign Capricorn. Amy was raised on a family farm. She spent her early years helping her father with livestock and different chores. Although she did not shy away from getting her hands dirty, Amy had different ideas than to pursue a career in farming and was more focused on academics.
On the education side of things, Amy enrolled at Grove City Area High School and graduated in 1998. She continued on with her studies at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. There she graduated in 2002 with a B.S. in Elementary Education and a certificate in ESOL.
After achieving her undergraduate degree Amy put her study on hold and tested herself in the real world as a career lady. She worked as a traveling BMW spokesmodel for nearly six years. After returning to Pennsylvania Amy joined Waynesburg University in 2008 and received her M.E in Special Education, specializing in working with kids with autism spectrum disorder, and other neurological diseases. Amy also worked for her certifications from ACE, NETA & AFFA, and became a personal trainer
After completing her undergrad education, Amy began teaching grade 1 elementary students at Broward County Florida. Thereafter she decided to move north taking her all the way to New York where she taught in a public school in Brooklyn. As the opportunity came her way she did not hesitate to try on a slightly different career path and worked as a traveling BMW spokesmodel for nearly six years. However, after marriage to Corey Graves in 2009, Amy settled down in Pennsylvania.
In her first year of marriage with Graves, Amy gave birth to Cash Polinsky. Unlike a typical housewife, she contributed to the family income as Corey was a struggling wrestler. She taught Special Education at Career Connections Charter High School while pursuing her master’s degree at Waynesburg University. Also, she taught Aerobic classes three days a week at LA Fitness in Monroeville.
Rise as a Fitness trainer:
Amy had been working as a fitness trainer for some time before gaining heights in the later years of her marriage. As her husband Corey gained fame as a WWE color commentator, fame found in Amy’s ways too as she garnered half a million Instagram followers. She regularly updated her profile with personalized workout schedules and several videos from her gym. In 2015 Amy alongside Corey and business partner Steven Alvarez established Stay Down Inc in Ruskin, Florida. The company offered modeling and fitness lessons and fitness merchandise and accessories.
Basil Rose Boutique:
“Jill of most trades,” Amy extended herself to the Boutique business. It was after she moved to Newport, Connecticut in 2016. In September 2017, Amy opened “Basil Rose Boutique” which offered women’s clothing, accessories, and home goods. After two years in business, Amy closed the shop in 2019 and moved back to Pennsylvania.
Meeting Corey Graves:
Amy Schneider and Matthew Polinsky, better known by the ring name Corey Graves met back in 2007, both working in a bar in Pennsylvania. Corey was working as a bouncer to supplement his income as a wrestler which did not yield him much, and Amy worked as a Bartender when not on the road as a BMW spokesmodel. The pair connected instantly, Corey moved in with her after the first week. And three months into the relationship the pair got engaged.
Marriage & Children:
Amy Polinsky married Corey Graves in 2009. In years as a married couple, the pair had a total of three children. They had their son Cash Polinsky in their first year of conjugal life (born 2009). Cash was followed by two girls Lenny Paige Polinsky (2011) and Lola Polinsky (2015).
While Amy and Graves enjoyed 10 years as a couple, things got off to a bad start in 2019. Amy accused her husband had been cheating with WWE star, Carmella. The Instagram post read,
“This may be totally below me to do but I’m hurt. I’m sad. I’ve put 11 years into supporting a man to accomplish his dream only for him to punch me in the gut! ‘I’ve been through suicide attempts, alcoholism, among so much more with him and stuck by his side. The kicker is finding out that he’s been sleeping with one of my daughters role models all along. @carmellawwe and @wwegraves I hope you guys are happy. I really do!”
Amy has since deleted the post and her Instagram account. While both Graves and Carmella denied the accusations, Amy later revealed that she and Graves had already been living separately leading up to the divorce.
After the divorce, Amy found solace in the arms of another man. Although she does not like to publicize her romance, she moved on with a new man in her life while Corey married WWE star, Carmella in 2022. Amy gave birth to her fourth child, a baby boy, Vaughn in 2020. Amy has custody of her three children from her ex and raises them in Pennsylvania.
