Savage met Bellars at a club in Tampa. After they started dating, Savage offered her the role of his valet in WCW. Initially, this role was supposed to go to Torrie Wilson, but she accepted it even though she wasn’t a huge wrestling fan.

Savage had purchased the name Gorgeous George from Robert Kellum, and gave that to Bellars. Together, Savage and Bellars created Team Madness and Molly Holly trained her for in-ring action at Slamboree 1999. Gorgeous George continued to work with WCW until October 1999, and quit the company once Savage and she broke up.
