They’re all in! Season 8 of E!’s hit reality TV series Total Divas is set to premiere tonight, and the WWE Superstars are bringing fans along on one of the most historic season yet. Life & Style caught up with stars Lana, Nia Jax, and Natalya and they teased what fans can expect to see on the upcoming season — and they even sat down to answer some life advice questions from fans. Watch the video above to see Lana, Nattie, and Nia on Life & Style‘s “Ask A Reality Star!”
Fans got to follow along on Natalya’s journey since Season 1 and she had one of the most pivotal years of her career last season after she became the WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion. But now, Nattie exclusively revealed to Life & Style that fans will get to continue to watch as she and her co-stars continue to break down barriers in the WWE.
“I think for us, this women’s movement is just on a roll and right now, it’s the best time in the world to be a woman — not just in the world, but in WWE,” Nattie told Life & Style. “And there’s just been so many special moments that we’ve shared together — whether it’s Nia Jax winning the women’s championship at Wrestlemania, Lana having her first ladder match where she blew everyone away, including myself, performing in a match that was very high-risk, to relationships.”
This season, the focus will on the sisterhood between Nattie and her co-stars Lana, Nia, Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Trinity, and Paige — and Lana explained that she and her co-stars love hard and fight hard just like sisters.
“I would say that we’re all like sisters. We are a family at WWE, sometimes a little dysfunctional family but still a family. And what family doesn’t have its little quirks and issues?” Lana exclusively told Life & Style. Fans watched last season as Lana butted heads with her friend and co-star Nattie — and while their friendship is in a good place now, Lana is still learning how to control her strong personality.
“And I still mess up all the time. You’ll even see that this season — Paige and I have a little bit of a blowout moment ’cause we’re both like that, you know?” Lana explained. “Paige is a strong, strong woman, we’re passionate and we speak our mind and we will stand up for what we believe in and people like that will hit heads at times. I am working on trying to control my mouth and my temper and not be explosive — that’s all I can do is take responsibility for my actions and apologize and keep on trying to change.”
Meanwhile, for Nia, this season is all about growth — both personally and career-wise. “It’s going to be pretty cool, you’ll see me win the Raw Women’s Championship at Wrestlemania, which is insane because it was a singles match on the Wrestlemania card, which was unheard of. It was the first in like 10 years,” Nia gushed to Life & Style. “And you’ll see me growing — I bought my first house which is kind of crazy coming from very, very, very humble beginnings.”
And unlike Lana, Nia gets along very well with Paige and fans will get a peek into their amazing friendship and their crazy antics. “Her and I are super close,” Nia said. “We just click and so whenever we’re together, we’re like, ‘Where can we cause trouble and havoc?'”
Be sure to tune into the season premiere of Total Divas, airing Wednesday, Sept. 19 at 9 p.m. on E!
