'Total Divas' season 9: Ronda Rousey joins Sonya Deville to stir up the reality show after the Bella twins' exit
The latest trailer for the upcoming season shows the divas having a great time with Rousey saying, 'I'm gonna do everything that I can to bring a spotlight to the women's Evolution'
The Bella twins may have stepped out of reality television but it looks like Ronda Rousey is just getting started. She has joined the ninth season of E!'s 'Total Divas' along with Sonya Deville for season 9. The latest trailer for the upcoming season shows the divas having a great time with Rousey saying, "'I'm gonna do everything that I can to bring a spotlight to the women's Evolution." It's still undecided when Rousey will come back to WWE, but fans will still see the star on the reality show that will premiere on October 2. Deville's appearance on the show is also historical since she is the only "openly gay female in WWE". The season will also feature Deville's Fort Lauderdale's Pride parade appearance.
"Total Divas kicks off showcasing another side of Ronda Rousey, as she gushes about her MMA fighter husband Travis Browne, enjoying her time in WWE and working on her ranch, Browsey Acres," WWE said in a statement. Rousey had talked about starting a family with her husband on her YouTube channel back in April. Along with Rousey, fans will also get to see 'Total Divas' veteran Carmella returning for the new season. Nikki and Brie Bella will not be returning. The sisters hung up their boots saying that it was getting too hectic and they needed to take a break. In their podcast, Nikki had said, "'We filmed all year long. When other people would get breaks from the reality cameras, Brie and I would be filming the next season of Bellas and then we’d go straight into Divas."
Brie, whose struggles with balancing work life, baby Birdie, multiple brands and her personal life have been chronicled on 'Total Bellas' the twins' show, cited that she needed to do what she felt was best for Birdie. "I don’t want Birdie to grow up in front of the cameras. I don’t want her to think that it’s a normal life," she had said.
