I love to read. I read because I’m able to escape from the everyday routine of life and get absorbed into either a thrilling storyline filled with lots of adventure and intrigue or I get engrossed in a storyline filled with lots of laugh out loud humor and peppy characters. (Kevin’s Edit: Lady, I provide laugh out loud humor every day of the week for you.) When I think of reality TV, I think of, terrible acting, mundane story lines, and just eh TV. This is exactly what Total Diva’s brought this week. Half way through I contemplated turning off the show and just pretending to finish the article with how I thought the show should end, but alas, I watched a completely boring 42 minute episode in which I wish I could have been reading.
This episode was all about Nattie, Nikki and Trinity. I think slutty Summer Rae only had a minute in the show along with Eva Marie.
We’ll start with Trinity this time around. To no shock at all, Trinity has made a pop song and was filming a music video. Not surprised since Cameron already did a song and Trinity’s dad is a musician. The song is complete and it’s now time to film the video, but her outfit isn’t done. She get’s so upset because the rhinestones aren’t on the back of the outfit yet, that she takes her 1 piece rhinestone suit and says she will finish it herself. Well, she called in her Uncles and they managed to pull an all nighter and got it done. (Kevin’s Edit: Trinity mentioned that she had been up for nearly 2 days when filming the video. I stayed up 70 straight hours to finish a project in school then had to wait several hours for a once a week evening class that I was determined to get to. When I went to dinner before the class, I attacked my hoagie with a spork. My then girlfriend sent me home. That was a good plan.) While shooting the video, it ripped. Unsalvageable. Then, to make matters worse, the Police show up because there is confusion with the permit. Now the director is upset and is trying to get this finished! Alas, like every TV show, everything ends happily. Brodus hears the song and says he wants to send it to his contacts, and name drops Snoop Dog. Seriously? (Kevin’s Edit: I must not have informed my lady that Brodus was one of Snoop’s body guards.)
Our next Diva is Nikki. We find out in this episode that she is now a real estate agent. Huh. I would never have seen that coming. Anyway, she gets the opportunity to show a home with a fabulous ocean view. She calls John and tells him how fabulous the view is and how much she loves the house. It was definitely an awkward showing and the people left. (Kevin’s Blog: I’m not surprised she was terrible. The WWE has never shown faith in their mic skills. Looks hot twins!) John comes to visit and all of a sudden he’s being mysterious and lying about where he is and taking abrupt phone calls and on the computer and quickly closes it when Nikki walks in. She obviously thinks he’s having an affair. All I can think about is, is she really that stupid? Can they make it any more obvious? So Nikki calls him out on his supposed cheating, he doesn’t deny it. She goes to show her house again that she is truly in love with, John shows up and we find out all the sneaking around is him moving funds so he can buy her the house and he will move to California. I’m pretty sick of these 2 already because it’s stupid how she loves a house so much that he just buys is for her. Is he going to buy her EVERYTHING that she says she loves? (Kevin’s Blog: You know you’re still with me because I’m your Sugar Daddy.)
Nattie is our final diva this week. In the previous episode Summer Rae hit her across the face and now Nattie has to have surgery on her nose that will make her be out of work for 6 months for healing time. She tells Summer Rae, who she faced first after finding out the news, to stay away from her face during their match. Summer Rae doesn’t, Nattie gets pissed and kicks Summer Rae’s butt in the ring. (Kevin’s Edit: I’m positive I have told her wrestling is fake.) She decides she isn’t going to give up the TLC match, so she takes the chance of hurting her nose even more. TJ explains that it’s better to take care of yourself and all will be OK, but she doesn’t listen and takes on the match and causes more of a problem for her face. (Kevin’s Edit: Nattie toughed out another Diva’s Title loss.)
I’m not sure if I missed something or not, but as you can tell by the short recap, it was a very dull and uninspiring show. Could the WWE make it more interesting? Yes. Will they? No. Because why would they try to showcase the hard work the Diva’s put in when they can just put them in skimpy outfits, give them terrible scripts to pretend to be real about and create as much drama as possible so more people will tune in. It’s amazing how much they are making off of this disaster. All I can say is, Total Diva’s will never be readable material, and I bet sometime soon, the WWE will come out with some kind of Diva book and they will make another crap load of money off another dull project.
One more episode to go to be caught up. When is this series over? I can only keep my fingers crossed it will be very soon! (Kevin’s Edit: Hoping thi show goes away is akin to me hoping Raw stops being 3 hours. It’s not happening.) – M & (Kevin)
