E! AND WWE(R) TAKE VIEWERS INTO THE WORLD OF THE POP CULTURE PHENOMENON WITH "TOTAL DIVAS" PREMIERING SUNDAY, JULY 28 AT 10PM ET/PT

For the First Time Ever, WWE Favorites - The Bella Twins, Natalya, Cameron, Naomi, And Two Divas-In-Training - Bring The Fun, The Sexy And The Drama In And Out Of The Ring With This New Eight-Episode Docu-Series

WWE Superstars John Cena(R), Daniel Bryan(R), Jimmy Uso(R), Tyson Kidd(R), Fandango(R), The Great Khali(R), Hornswoggle(R) And More To Appear In The Series' Debut Season

Los Angeles, CA - July 11, 2013 -WWE and E!, two pop culture giants, partner to bring viewers the first-ever look into the world of the WWE Divas in the all new docu-series, "Total Divas." Cameras will follow the lives of five Divas - both in and out of the ring - giving a first-hand look at the electric personalities, compelling personal lives and incomparable in-ring performances that have helped make WWE the most successful organization in sports entertainment history.

With the triumphant return of fan favorites, The Bella Twins, Nikki and Brie, after a year-long break, the two sisters are met with an explosive mix of energy from two gorgeous, polar opposite newbies who enter the rigorous WWE training program for a chance to call themselves Divas. The series opens with an unprecedented look inside the most-anticipated WWE event of the year, WrestleMania(R), marking the first time that any television series was granted exclusive behind-the-scenes access to WWE. Produced by WWE and Bunim-Murray Productions, a Banijay company, "Total Divas" will highlight the glamorous, chaotic and often dramatic lives of the WWE Divas when the series premieres Sunday, July 28 at 10pm ET/PT following a new episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," only on E!

Meet the Divas:

Nikki Bella (Stephanie Garcia Colace) of the tag team "The Bella Twins"

A self-admitted "tomboy" with a feminine side, Nikki originally planned to play professional soccer until a leg injury ended her career. From there, she followed her twin sister Brie to the WWE. Nikki is idolized by fans and newbie Divas-in-training alike, but, the rivalries and competition runs thick within WWE - especially between the Bellas and their tag team nemeses "The Funkadactyls." Outside the ring, Nikki has been sustaining a secret, steady relationship with one of the biggest names in WWE history. For the first time, the couple will open up about their personal lives together when "Total Divas" premieres July 28th.

Brie Bella (Brianna Garcia Colace) of the tag-team "The Bella Twins"

The other half of the dazzling and devious Bella Twins, Brie debuted on SmackDown in 2008. Alongside her sister Nikki, the half-Italian, half-Mexican beauties have quickly become two of the most popular Divas in history, each with their own solo reign as WWE Women's Champion. Outside of the ring, Brie has found love in the arms of one of WWE's biggest names, Daniel Bryan.

Naomi (Trinity McCray) of the tag-team "The Funkadactyls"

The leggy beauty first turned heads as a dancer for the NBA's Orlando Magic and on concert tours for hip-hop stars like Flo-Rida. These talents took Trinity around the world performing in sold out arenas. However, none of these venues could compare to stepping foot in the ring after appearing on as a contestant on WWE NXT, a competition series searching for the next big name in the WWE. There, Trinity showed something special and made her WWE debut as Naomi accompanying Superstar Brodus Clay(R) to the ring while dancing with fellow Diva Cameron. The two ladies commanded the attention of the fans with their athleticism and dance skills, thus forming "The Funkadactyls," a sexy tag-team that rivals "The Bella Twins." Out of the ring, Trinity recently went public with her relationship to WWE Superstar Jimmy Uso.

Cameron (Ariane Andrew) of the tag-team "The Funkadactyls"

As one of the feistiest Divas in the biz, Cameron joins Naomi as a duo on the path to the top of Diva Queen-dom. This caused plenty of tension and drama with "those Bella twins," as she calls them, and outside of the ring, tensions continue to grow as Ariane is looking to be the top Diva in the WWE. In addition to balancing the grueling work and training schedule, Ariane is in a relationship with a man not in the WWE world - which presents a lot of obstacles of its own. As Ariane is learning, not every Diva can have it all.

Natalya (Natalie Neidhart)

Stepping into the ring was in Natalie's blood as the daughter of the legendary Jim "The Anvil(R)" Neidhart and the niece of Bret "Hit Man(R)" Hart and Bruce Hart. Along with her cousin David Hart Smith, Natalya, as she is known in the ring, continues to make the family proud as a third-generation Superstar. In the ring, Natalya is joined by her cousin David and her fiancée "Tyson Kidd(R)," forming The Hart Dynasty. Out of the ring, Natalie has claimed the heart of "Tyson Kidd," and the couple's road to the altar will be documented in "Total Divas," including the bachelorette party, finding the perfect dress and of course the wedding ceremony.

Eva Marie (Natalie Nelson) and JoJo Offerman (Joseanne Offerman) - Divas-in-Training

Eva Marie is a rebellious spitfire and immediately ruffles the feathers with the established Divas. The budding bombshell also makes her presence known to the male Superstars when she flirts relentlessly with fan favorite Fandago. Polar opposite is sweet and shy JoJo Offerman who comes in a tiny package but has booming and harmonic voice which just adds another layer to her talents. The ladies are eager to step foot in the ring, even as they hear about potential injuries and surgeries (maybe even ones that are cosmetic) that take some Divas out of commission. The competition is stiff and as these two newbies will learn over the course of the season, only the strong survive in the world of Divas.

Don't miss the match-up between the Bellas and Naomi/Cameron (aka The Funkadactyls) as they bring the drama from the very start when "Total Divas" premieres Sunday, July 28th at 10pm ET/PT on E!

Total Divas is produced by WWE and Bunim-Murray Productions. Jon Murray, Gil Goldshein, Jeff Jenkins and Russell Jay are Executive Producers for Bunim-Murray Productions.
