Source: The RackNatalya joined The Rack this past Thursday Night. In a nearly 10 minute interview, she discussed the new season of Total Divas that premieres this Sunday, what she thinks of new co-star Summer Rae, if she's gotten used to the cameras and more. Here are some highlights, you can download and listen to the full interview by clicking here.
The popularity of the show and what to expect in the upcoming second season:
"First of all, the show kind of caught fire in Season 1; it became extremely popular and people just got hooked on it because it's such a fascinating show. It's our lived behind the scenes in the WWE and it's really entertaining because fans have never really gotten to see us in this light.
"But, in Season 2, you've kind of gotten to know us from Season 1 and it's even like people have become more connected to us; they feel that relationship or that bond with us from Season 1. But Season 2 is even more dramatic than before; we have a new cast member, her name is Summer (Rae) and she definitely stirs things up a little bit. I'm not going to reveal too much but we definitely have some issues that we certainly need to get sorted out, hoping to get them sorted out in a professional manner otherwise she's going to get bodyslammed by me."
The slap seen in the Season 2 teaser by Summer Rae:
"Yeah, I never really, like I said, I never wanted it to get that far but of course she kind of brought it on herself and now we're going full circle with it, so definitely people were excited to see it. She's really, really someone I want to put the Sharpshooter onto every day. But the show is great because it gives people a chance to see we're not perfect and that's one of my favorite parts about doing 'Total Divas', is that I'm a perfectionist at heart. Visit Wrestling Inc. I'm a Type-A personality; I like to do everything, I like to have my ducks in a row but this show has really shown me and taught me that no one is perfect, and women especially, it's ok to show people we make mistakes, that we're human.
"And that being human is part of what makes people feel connected to us. It's part of our likeability and when I started to let go of those, let those walls down, it shows people that I make mistakes and I'm human. I have fears, I have insecurities, I laugh, I cry; all that and everything in-between. I think that is what is the really great think about this show; is that you see these larger-than-life entities and on 'Total Divas' you can see we're really just like you."
Has she gotten more comfortable with the Total Divas cameras now:
"Well, I think that's where the danger is, is that we get so comfortable in front of the cameras where I forget that cameras are around us and so it makes for great TV but certainly there's time, like I said, where I forget the cameras were around us and I'll watch a commercial on TV for Total Divas and say 'I don't even remember saying that! I can't believe I did that.' You're like 'Did I really say that' and you watching it back, going 'Gosh, I should have been more careful'. But, again, it's part of being human, it's part of being real and it's like, like me or hate me this is who I am so just accept me for that.
"The group we are working with, with E!, they're so good; they're pretty much the best in the world at what they do as far as reality TV goes and are so professional, you don't really know they're there. I ended up making friends with the camera guys and all of a sudden, my cat loves them and they're over there sipping tea with me after the show. So, it's fun but at the same time, we're still entertainers and we're still on TV. My regular job with WWE has been life-changing and I'm always on TV with them too, so I get terrible stage fright but at the same time I understand too that my job is in front of the cameras, so I've really embraced it."
