Lana and Rusev’s tenure on Total Divas has come to an end and “The Ravishing Russian” isn’t happy about it.
Lana — who joined Total Divas as a main cast member in 2016 — announced that she and Rusev would no longer be involved with the E! reality series during an interview with Lilian Garcia on the most recent episode of Chasing Glory.
“Kevin Dunn told me that E! executives took a poll and that we are strongly disliked by the demographic,” Lana told Garcia, after mentioning that she and Rusev had once been told they were going to get their own spin-off series.
“They do not like us and that I’m hated, we’re hated, and that the E! e
“I was shocked. I just sat there. It was like my tryout for WWE all over again. I’ve gone through a lot of different range of emotions. I’ll cry, but when I get hurt, I get really angry. That’s how I deal with hurt, I get really angry. Like, who is this new E! executive?”
Lana continued, “It’s just that I’m not liked and one part of me is like – and I said that – Mark Carrano and Kevin Dunn was there and I said, ‘Maybe, I’m just not a likable person.’ I know I’m a good person, but maybe I have a boring personality because I’m just not liked.”
Lana went on to say that Total Divas was edited to make her look bad.
“They take someone saying something from one thing and put it there. In edit, they can do whatever they want and that’s out of your control. If they want to make me more annoying and I have to play that annoying girl, they’ll do that.”
Rusev added, “I’ll make my own show. Once I get rejected from somewhere or whatnot, I’m moving on.”
