Terri then began a feud with The Kat because she was jealous of the latter's TV exposure. At WrestleMania 2000, Terri defeated The Kat in a Catfight. The next week on RAW, Terri invited The Kat to a beauty salon. However, Terri spiked The Kat's drink and dyed and cut her hair while she was unconscious. On May 6 at Insurrextion in London, England, Terri lost to The Kat in a Arm Wrestling match, but stripped her topless afterwards.

In June 2000, Terri formed an alliance with Dean Malenko, and on June 6 on RAW, Malenko faced Jerry Lawler (representing The Kat) in a "Over the Top, Off with the Top" Match in Worcester, Massachusetts. Though Malenko lost, Terri was covered up by Steven Richards before she could strip topless. The Kat went on to defeat her in a thong Stinkface Match at SummerSlam 2000.

In mid-2000, Terri became the onscreen girlfriend and manager of Perry Saturn and joined the Radicalz. The partnership lasted until Saturn, concussed by a double powerbomb delivered by The Acolytes, opted to continue seeing "Moppy" (a mop he believed was alive) when Terri told him to get rid of the mop or she would leave him. Terri then became the manager of wrestler Raven and joined the WCW/ECW Alliance in order to enact revenge upon Saturn, a goal she achieved when Raven stole the mop and fed it into a wood chipper.

In late 2001, Terri replaced Trish Stratus as the host of the WWE recap program "Excess" after Stratus became a full-time wrestler. She briefly feuded with Stratus, resulting in a wet t-shirt contest between the two on Raw, which was interrupted by Jazz. Runnels held the role until the program was cancelled. She then became a backstage interviewer. She wrestled the occasional match and has brief feuds with Molly Holly and Stacy Keibler. Terri defeated Keibler in the first ever Lingerie Pillow Fight. On May 27, 2002 she briefly held the perpetually contested Hardcore Title when she pinned a dazed Steven Richards, though he immediately pinned her to regain the title. She also began an onscreen romance with Kane which was abandoned when Kane turned heel in June 2003. Terri declined to train as a full-time wrestler, preferring to act as a manager if possible.

On April 3, 2004 Terri was granted a release from her WWE contract. She has since made a number of appearances on the independent circuit. On June 5, 2004 she acted as guest ring announcer for Harley Race's World League Wrestling promotion, and prevented Johnny Gold from interfering in the main event. She resumed a managerial role on July 10, 2004, leading Brian Costello to a victory over The Barbarian at IAW: Clash at the Cove 6. On January 18, 2005 she managed the Midnight Express (Bobby Eaton and Dennis Condrey) in a Steel Cage Match which they lost to the Fantastics (Tommy Rogers and Bobby Fulton) in the Southern Championship Wrestling promotion.

In March 2005 Terri stated in an interview that "I am through with wrestling"; it remains to be seen if she has completely retired.

In May 2006 Terri stated in a news article that she had started a program called "Soccertots" a franchised program that uses fun activities to develop physical and mental skills.
