Cena Bella, I don't think it's really that surprising.

I was surprised the twins have such contrasting personalities. maybe that's a more common thing among twins than I realise, or the show is edited to highlight it more, just surprised me. but the whole one with Cena, one with Bryan thing really makes sense now.

I had no intention of watching this until I looked at this thread expecting it to get torn to shreds and everyone was like "it's much more entertaining than I thought" and I fully agree with that. I'm a sucker for backstage/behind the scenes wrestling stuff, and this show had a lot more of that than I was expecting.

Also: Cena comes across as a plank. maybe he was just real uncomfortable with the show setup, much more swearing, much less rapadoo.

Also2: NXT spot! there was Charlotte Flair training with Nattie, guess this was about 3-4 months before her debut.

I feel sorry for Cena Bella then. She went from being with Dolph, who probably sold sex like it was the end of the world to Cena, who probably acts serious beforehand only to act like nothing is happening and then laughs about it afterwards.

Nah, he starts yelling when it gets really serious.

And now I'm imagining a different context for DB's YES chants.

I don't much care for the attitude of filthy money-lenders

The saddest Nattie moment was when she approached and hugged Stephanie McMahon on the morning of WrestleMania. Nattie apologised (!) for not being at the Hall of Fame, saying she was at a signing at Fan Axcess, but she heard her speech was great. Stephanie couldn't escape quick enough.

While a few parts of WWE's Total Divas reality show are staged, apparently the incident where Cameron's boyfriend Vincent was angry at Brodus Clay following WrestleMania dress rehearsals was a shoot.

Show induced drama or not, I think there is little doubt Cena is going to eventually break up with Nikki.


EDIT - Brodus would've killed that guy and it would've been amazing. Destroying Vincent would be a great career move for him.

Jesus, did I say that? Or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me?


I'd like to think that Brodus heard that "Vincent" was talking poo poo about him and threatened to beat him up to defend his woman's honor, causing Brodus to track down Wrestling Superstar Virgil and smash his face through a plate glass window, bloodying him terribly.

People forget that Brodus was a body guard for Snoop Dogg. The man can mess you up in a real fight if need be. Makes me want to watch that fight with Vincent even more.

Humans disgust me. Vile creatures.


I really didn't enjoy the show. I don't like reality TV shows in general, but even knowing it's a work, it just made me feel bad for Nattie and made me think that everyone on the show other than Bryan and Jay Uso is a bit of a twat (or a complete twat in Vincent's case). I was hoping that my enjoyment of backstage stuff would win out over my dislike of reality TV bullshit drama, but I think I'll just be reading this thread instead of watching the show.

As a man who watches a lot of reality trash I feel qualified to review this show. I watch most all the Real Housewives shows, and a bunch of other Bravo poo poo, so I have been heavily immersed in the concept of 'watch kinda rich people shriek at eachother over nothing'.

This is poo poo, like even among Real Housewives of Who Gives a gently caress this is bad. It's not entertaining, the people don't have any absurd quirks to laugh at, and the drama is so forced even I had to go 'this isn't what humans do' and I have watched multiple instances of women having shrieking drunken meltdowns because someone brought someone they didn't like to their dog charity event.

It's honestly a bummer because I just know when this bombs Vince will go 'well see no one gives a poo poo about Divas' and further make the division into a farce.

My wife watches that real housewives show and I can't stand more than 2 minutes of it, yet I found this watchable somehow. It's all subjective.

My best friend loves reality TV, knows nothing about WWE and she really loved it so it must have some kind of appeal.

The dirty little secret about this show's rating is that even though it did a 1.3 million viewers, it's lead-in did 2.8million, meaning over half the viewers of that show tuned out for Total Divas.

If anyone cares, the rerun of episode 1 after Raw got 1.53 million viewers

That sounds like about the amount that tuned out after the Kardashian show Sunday
