A Wedding, A Breakup And A Divorce?! Don't Miss The "Total Divas" Mid-Season Finale Sunday, October 26 At 9pm ET On E!
The Hit Series Returns January 4th With All-New Episodes And Some Fresh Faces When WWE(R) Diva Alicia Fox(TM) And WWE Diva Paige(TM) Join The Cast
Los Angeles, CA, October 20, 2014 - Get ready for a real red wedding! The Total Divas mid-season finale features WWE's SummerSlam(R) , Eva Marie's(TM) wedding and even shows Brie Bella(TM) meeting with sister Nikki Bella's(TM) boyfriend, WWE Superstar John Cena(R), behind her sister's back about his influence causing her to give up on dreams of marriage and children. Of course, the unexpected confrontation leads to explosive consequences. Meanwhile, Natalya(TM) is caught in a downward spiral when the truth is revealed to the Divas that her marriage to WWE Superstar Tyson Kidd(TM) is falling apart. In an attempt to help mend their relationship, the Bella Twins(TM) organize a night out, but when the infamous #BrieMode comes out in full force, the sisters are inevitably pushed further apart. While Eva Marie does make it down the aisle on her big day, there is no guarantee that her fellow Divas will all be there to witness the ceremony. Don't miss the mid-season finale of Total Divas, Sunday, October 26 at 9pm ET on E!.
When Total Divas returns with all-new episodes on January 4 at 10pm ET, a new duo emerges to shake up the dynamics of the cast: WWE Diva Paige and WWE Diva Alicia Fox. Former WWE Divas Champion, Paige, is a raven-haired Diva who preaches a simple message: she wants to mix it up in the ring. She first began battling when she was 13, following her family of English wrestlers, and gained prominence inside the WWE's NXT Division, as the first NXT Women's Champion. Similarly, the stunning and lithesome Alicia Fox has proven herself to be far more ferocious and eccentric than anyone ever expected. The talented Ms. Fox has etched her name in WWE record books as the first African-American woman to win the Divas Championship. Together, the two ladies, along with friend WWE Diva Rosa Mendes(TM), form a clique in the locker room that rivals the Bella Twins and WWE Diva Cameron(TM) (Ariane), leaving Nattie stuck in the middle.
As season three progresses, a longtime feud between Ariane and Alicia forces the two Divas to go head-to-head. On the couple's front, Nikki and John are on the outs after he blindsided her with the idea that they may not be meant for each other. Brie also has to confess to Nikki that she went behind her back and confronted Cena about his stance on marriage that lead to the couple's turmoil. Newlywed Eva Marie struggles with some surprising health issues, and Brie seriously considers giving up her exciting career for a more domestic life.
In addition, as Nattie deals with her imploding marriage and its subsequent fallout, she looks to family and friends for support which includes moving into Cena's house. This proves problematic when she finds out he is very allergic to cats, and Nattie can't fathom parting with her furry friends.
The Total Divas mid-season finale airs Sunday, October 26 at 9pm ET on E!. All-new episodes start Sunday, January 4, 2015 at 10pm ET, before returning to its regular time slot at 9pm beginning January 11.
Total Divas is produced by WWE and Bunim-Murray Productions. Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein, Jeff Jenkins and Russell Jay are Executive Producers for Bunim-Murray Productions. Kevin Dunn and Will Staeger are Executive Producers for WWE.
