Sonya Deville revealed in an interview with Afterbuzz TV that she has been added to the cast for the 9th season of WWE Total Divas on E!, replacing the departing Lana and Rusev. Below are the highlights from the interview, courtesy of WrestlingInc.
On joining the show:
“Part of being a WWE Superstar to me is showing the fans what happens outside of the ring. Who I am in the ring, and in my personal life, is important to defining my character. I’m tough for a reason. I’ve been through things and I am the person I am for a lot of reasons, and I love sharing those stories with the fans because it’s relatable. I meet a lot of people, fans everyday, that can relate to what I’ve been through and stuff that they’re going through in their own lives. On that topic. I’ll be on Season 9 of Total Divas, which is something I’m super excited about…We’re starting filming this week. I mean, we filmed a little bit at The Rumble but this week is really the first week of filming.”
On being worried about how her girlfriend will react:
“Obviously I’m nervous, because any time you have cameras in your personal life, inside your home, in your relationship, it is obviously nerve racking. My life is crazy and sh– happens sometimes that I’m not proud of, and I make mistakes. It’s going to all be captured on TV and it’s going to air, and people are hopefully going to be able to relate to some of those mistakes, and stuff like that. My girlfriend will be on this season with me, and so that’s a big thing for her because she’s not in the public eye like I am. She’s not used to cameras in her face. It’s going to be an adjustment for her as well, and our relationship.”
