Today, one of wrestling’s favorite daughters took a leap into a territory countless others in the industry are familiar with. At 3 p.m., Noelle Foley officially launched her OnlyFans account to the public after having teased it over the last week. It’s something that she, as the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley (aka Cactus Jack aka Mankind aka Dude Love) and one of the stars of the reality show Holy Foley!, has been considering over the last couple of years. Having an OnlyFans — particularly among female wrestlers — has become increasingly common, and she figured she might as well cash in, too. Though, it’s not for the reason you’d think.
Just ahead of her launch, I spoke with Foley, 28, about what fans can expect from the account, why she decided now was the right time to pursue OnlyFans and what her friends, family and famous father think of the move.
What should people anticipate from your OnlyFans?
I’m gonna be doing much spicier content than what you see on my Instagram, which is pretty wholesome. Back in the day, I used to do some sexy shoots, and that’s how I established a big following. I had finally settled down and stopped doing those, but when I saw how much of an income was possible from posting sexy pictures, I was like, why the heck not? It’ll be sexier content like bikini shoots, lingerie and cosplays. I really love dressing up, so I’m excited to do some fun cosplays that I didn’t get to do for Halloween.
On Instagram and Twitter, I really never open up my DMs, so OnlyFans will also be a place where you can actually talk to me. That hasn’t been available before.
What led you to start your OnlyFans now?
If I’m being honest, I have a lot of medical bills from a concussion from September 2019, and the symptoms have never gone away. It’s so deeply affected my life. It seems like no matter what treatments and physical therapy I do, nothing helps. So with the medical bills I already have, that’s just been bonkers. Yesterday, I calculated that in 2022, I’ve had 80 appointments alone, and not one has been covered by insurance. You can imagine how expensive that gets. I’ve also been looking into stem cell therapy outside of the United States.
The day I spoke to a doctor and got the exact estimate for it, which is an astronomical amount, was the same day another woman I know launched her account. I did some simple calculations to estimate how much she made on her first day, and it was exactly what I needed for stem cell therapy. It took probably another month or two of thinking about it before I was like, ‘Okay, I think this is the right thing to do.’ I just really need this money so I can get better. That’s 100 percent the main reason.
Did you talk to your family about pursuing OnlyFans?
I have individually talked to each family member, because I wasn’t sure what they’d think. I didn’t really know what their perception or view of OnlyFans was. But everyone in my family around me knows how deeply I’ve been struggling with my health issues. So they’re basically like, ‘What if you could make the money to possibly help heal yourself? Go ahead.’ I’ve had everyone’s support, which is pretty nice.
Before I decided, I reached out to Scarlett Bordeaux, because she has a really successful account and I wanted to see how she liked it. She responded right away, and she said how amazing it was. We had a call together with her basically telling me that I should absolutely do it. So I’ve had some people definitely help persuade me a little, too.
How are you feeling ahead of the launch this afternoon now that it’s finally happening?
I’m nervously excited. Since I’ve posted on social media that was launching it, I really haven’t looked at any of the comments. I prefer just to see that people are signing up, because those are the ones that’ll be supportive and aren’t going to be rude. I have seen a couple people tattling on me to my dad via Twitter, though. Come on, guys. Grow up! Does anybody else have to deal with this where people tattle to the person’s father? It can get annoying.
I know some people are going to think, ‘Why’d you have to get an OnlyFans? Why can’t you just ask your dad for money?’ My dad has offered me money [for my medical expenses], but I would feel so guilty accepting such a large amount.
I’m really curious how it’s going to go. I have certain expectations, but at the same time, I don’t want to have any expectations at all in case things don’t go as well as I’d wanted. But if I see that stem cell money come in, I’ll be happy.
