Cannatella was born on November 4, 1979 and raised in Cut Off, Louisiana. She was raised as a Southern Baptist, and has described herself as a "momma's girl".
Her mother, a devout Christian, took her family to church three or four times a week. When she was 14, her mother died from a brain tumor. Prior to her passing, Trishelle's mother instructed Trishelle's older sister Nikki to look after Trishelle, which Nikki would eventually do. Cannatella was on several athletic teams throughout her high school career at South Lafourche High School, but after her mother passed away, Cannatella began rebelling by associating with an unsavory crowd, acting the part of the "bad girl" at school, and eventually began doing drugs. She began smoking marijuana, and eventually began regularly taking Valium Xanax, quaaludes, and ecstacy, which her friends would acquire in Mexico.
During her senior year of high school, however, she began to associate with a more respectable group of friends who "took her under their wing", and got her to abstain from drugs. After visiting her sister Nikki at The University of Southern Mississippi, Cannatella decided on that college, which she began attending at age 18, majoring in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in English.
