Ivory, part 2

Moretti began challenging for the Women's Championship by April. After severing her connections with D-Lo Brown and Mark Henry, she won the title on June 14, by defeating Debra with the assistance of Nicole Bass. Moretti defended her title against plants and jobbers for several weeks, then went on to retain her title in a bout with Tori at SummerSlam 1999 on August 22. Moretti continued to feud with Tori in the weeks following SummerSlam, defeating her in the first ever WWF women's Hardcore Match on September 6. Next, Moretti was challenged by Luna Vachon, who Moretti defeated in a Hardcore Match at Unforgiven 1999 on September 26.

In October 1999, Moretti feuded with the The Fabulous Moolah, who defeated her for the Women's Championship on October 17, 1999 at No Mercy 1999. She defeated Moolah in a rematch on the October 25 episode of RAW, winning her second Women's Championship. Her second title reign ended with a loss to Miss Kitty in a Four Way Swimming Pool Evening Gown Match on December 12 at Armageddon 1999.

In late 1999, Moretti began playing a more conservative character, labeling audience members who enjoyed risque matches "perverts". On January 23, at the 2000 Royal Rumble, she grudgingly took part in the "Miss Royal Rumble" swimsuit contest, which was won by Mae Young. She challenged Jacqueline for the Women's Championship throughout early 2000, but was unsuccessful on each occasion. On the March 23 episode of SmackDown!, Moretti attempted to win the Hardcore Championship by breaking a jar on champion Crash Holly's head while giving him a massage and then attempting to pin him.

After an absence, Moretti returned to WWF television on October 23, 2000 as a member of the conservative Right to Censor faction. The change in gimmick saw her don less suggestive ring attire and adopt a severe bun. Moretti quickly began a feud with Women's Champion Lita, and on the October 31 episode of SmackDown!, she won the Women's Championship by defeating Lita, Jacqueline and Trish Stratus in a Fatal Four Way Match. She retained the title against both Lita at the 2000 Survivor Series on November 19 with the assistance of R.T.C. leader Steven Richards and in a Triple Threat Match against Trish Stratus and Molly Holly at Armageddon 2000 on December 10.

After Chyna posed for Playboy Magazine in late 2000, she incurred the wrath of Right To Censor, and on the December 11 episode of RAW, Moretti and Val Venis delivered a double-team piledriver to Chyna, (kayfabe) injuring her neck.

Chyna challenged Moretti for the Women's Championship at the 2001 Royal Rumble on January 21, 2001. Moretti retained her title when she pinned Chyna after Chyna appeared to reaggrevate her neck injury. Chyna challenged Moretti for the title once more at WrestleMania X-Seven on April 1 and squashed Moretti in a brief match, thus ending Moretti's third reign as Women's Champion. Right To Censor disbanded shortly thereafter, with each of the member disappearing from WWF television.

Moretti returned to WWF television on the August 6, 2001 episode of RAW, joining The Alliance. She went on to manage The Hurricane, assisting him in his feud with Matt Hardy. In September 2001, she also managed Lance Storm. At No Mercy 2001 on October 21, Storm and The Hurricane were defeated by the Hardy Boyz. Moretti went on to compete in the women's division, and on November 18 at the 2001 Survivor Series, she participated in a six pack challenge for the vacant Women's Championship, which Trish Stratus won.
