– WWE Divas Naomi and Cameron recently spoke with Ebony. Here are some highlights from the interview:

If they have ever been bullied by The Bella Twins:

Naomi: “On TV as our characters, yes, but not in real life. In real life they are really nice girls. They are sweet, they are funny, but on TV we are acting; we are playing a role and pretending.”

If Total Divas is scripted:

Cameron: “What you see is kind of what you get. You get a group of seven talented, powerful girls that are on there, but in our daily lives we all have our ups and downs. You see the life, even the glitz and glam, but also the struggle. Being in a competitive environment and just seeing— no matter where you come from or what your race are— there are only a few spots. It’s just amazing that the fans finally get to see what we do in our lives and see us in the ring and outside the ring.”

Naomi: “It’s real. From the time we go to sleep to the time we go home you are seeing our real lives.”

If they ever feel racial tension from the fans, or if audiences divide themselves and their allegiances along racial lines:

Naomi: “Actually, I feel that in the WWE everyone is given the same opportunities to succeed based on merit, and I think the crowd likes who they like. There are people that like us and there are people that won’t like us.”

Cameron: “I feel like, you know, the Bella Twins [who are White] have been around for a very long time. I also think too, that Trinity and I are slowly getting more fans. Our die hard WWE wrestling fans want to see us in the ring in action— and we are slowly starting to get there. The fans will see how talented, how athletic we are and what a great tag team we are. They will see the full package that Trinity and I have. Having the Bella’s around is good because they play the bad guys. You have the fans that no matter what your character is, they will either like you or won’t, but having the Bella’s is amazing because you have to have a villain to make a hero.”

    Lol The Bella Twins aren’t “white”. They’ve stated before that they’re at least half-Mexican. And yeah, the only “talented, powerful girl” on the show is Natalya, who went from farting to dancing with Khali, because WWE values the granddaughter of Stu Hart THAT much.

    “You get a group of seven talented, powerful girls that are on there, but in our daily lives we all have our ups and downs.”

    I accept this statement as true, when you minus the words talented and powerful.
