A new reality series will follow the personal and professional lives of the WWE’s Bella Twins, as well as several other wrestling “divas.”
“Total Divas,” slated to premiere on July 28, will track the exploits of seven of the WWE’s female stars as they "wrestle with the challenges of life in the spotlight, a grueling work and travel schedule, and the intense competition for prominence in a career that leaves little time for a personal life," according to an E! press release.
While “Total Divas” will feature appearances by several female wrestlers, the WWE’s superstar Bella Twins will be the show’s main attraction. The twins, Brie and Nikki, have spent the last six years working their way from the independent wrestling circuit to the peak of women’s professional wrestling.
The series will also focus on Naomi and Cameron, better known as “The Funkadactyls.” Between the pair’s trademark dance routines and penchant for scrapping with the Bella Twins (and each other), The Funkadactyls seem destined for reality television stardom.
Meanwhile, newcomers Eva Marie and Jo-Jo Offerman will try to use “Total Divas” to launch their fledgling WWE careers.
The divas won’t just be working to advance their standing in wrestling. Each woman will have to balance their unique profession with their boyfriends, families, and all the other trappings of a hectic personal life.
“Total Divas” is one of six new series that E! revealed on Monday, The Wrap reports. The network will also debut “The Wanted Life,” based on the lives of pop mega-group The Wanted, and “Fortunate Son,” a series produced by Kevin Spacey.
“Total Divas” is slated to premiere on Sunday, July 28, at 10 p.m. ET.
