- Above is video of SmackDown Women's Champion Natalya talking to BUILD about the season 7 premiere of Total Divas, which premieres on November 1st. Regarding Carmella, Nia Jax and RAW Women's Champion Alexa Bliss joining the cast, Natalya says it's nice having new blood that come on the show and mix things up. She's built a bond with Carmella, who is now one of her closest friends on the blue brand. Natalya says they both agree that being a heel is a lot more fun than being a babyface, and that Carmella is one she can always vent to.
Natalya also noted that she and Carmella both deal with Lana on the show a lot. Natalya says Lana is great but she's also high maintenance a lot of the time, joking that she doesn't know how Rusev does it. Natalya says it's also great having Nia Jax on the show as they didn't know a lot about each other until they started filming together. Natalya says she started falling in love with Nia's ability to just speak her mind as she got to know her. She says if Nia doesn't like something, she says it and wears her heart on her sleeve. Natalya added that working with Nia made her want to be a lot more open and honest.
