Ever since WWE and E! announced that Total Divas was getting a Bellas-specific spinoff entitled Total Bellas, I’ve been waiting with bated breath to find out just WHEN I can watch that bad boy. Now we finally know. Total Bellas will premiere on Wednesday, October 5 at 8 p.m. ET. Rejoice, everyone, for the greatest show in the entire universe is now two shows.
Here is the full press release from WWE and E! Entertainment:
E! SETS PREMIERE DATE FOR NEW SERIES “TOTAL BELLAS”
WWE Superstars The Bella Twins(TM), John Cena(R) and Daniel Bryan(R) Move In Under One Roof in New Spin-Off Series Premiering Wednesday, October 5 at 8:00pm ET/PT
LOS ANGELES, CA – June 27, 2016 – Two’s company, three’s a crowd, and these four – are just too much to handle. E! Entertainment exposes the Raw and real lives of WWE(R) Superstars Nikki and Brie Bella when “Total Bellas,” spin-off of E!’s mega-hit series “Total Divas,” premieres Wednesday, October 5 at 8:00pm ET/PT. The six, one-hour episodes will give viewers an exclusive, intimate look into the VIP lives of the Bellas and their fellas, John Cena and Daniel Bryan, as the four distinctly unique and comical personalities coexist under one roof for the first time.
Although these twins share the same genes, they will never share the same jeans as living together was more tolerable when they just shared a womb. The free-spirited, vegan-loving, live-and-let-live lifestyle of Brie and Bryan has always clashed with the fancy panache of the designer handbag-loving Nikki and the meticulously organized tendencies of John. However, when the four world-renowned WWE Superstars move in under one roof, the comical clash of titans rings all throughout the suburbs of Tampa, FL.
The series kicks-off with Nikki and John being sidelined by injuries and Daniel’s recent retirement from the ring. This docu-series will follow the odd-couple relationships of these eccentric WWE Superstars as Brie does her best to nurse, not only Nikki, but John and Daniel back to health, all while trying to retain their sanity. With Nikki’s recent neck surgery, Brie’s retirement at WrestleMania(R), Daniel’s untimely retirement from WWE, and John’s rising profile in Hollywood, fans will get an exclusive beyond-the-ropes glimpse into how these dynamic individuals juggle their reality and prepare for their uncertain futures.
“Total Bellas” is produced by WWE and Bunim/Murray Productions. Gil Goldschein, Jeff Jenkins and Russell Jay are Executive Producers for Bunim/Murray Productions. Kevin Dunn is Executive Producer for WWE. Nikki Bella and Brie Bella also serve as Executive Producers.
A house divided cannot stand… in stilettos. “Total Bellas” premieres Wednesday, October 5 at 8:00pm ET/PT only on E!
This press release is so pitch-perfect to the Total Divas brand and I just cannot handle how wonderful it is. They’ll never share the same jeans! I like that they refer to Bryan and Brie as “vegan-loving,” as though that is an actual thing. Also that stilettos stinger. Perfect. Glorious.
At any rate, I’m now counting the days until Total Bellas kicks off. This is my own personal NFL season, except my team is guaranteed to win every single week.
