Review of WWE Total Divas Season 2 Episode 6
Most episodes of WWE Total Divas have a level of stupidity. But this week's episode goes way overboard. Most of it concerns Nattie Neidhart and husband TJ Wilson going to New York and the Nattie's terrible decision to allow Ariane to housesit. A lesser story has The Bella Twins bickering over chicken. Nikki is buying chicken in the supermarket and Brie is giving her a hard time for buying factory chicken instead of free range chicken. Nikki doesn't care until Brie shows her the conditions factory chickens are raised in. Nikki gets the message but won't eat chicken anymore. So Brie takes Nikki to a chicken farm to show how chickens are properly raised. The whole thing comes across like a public service announcement no doubt inspired by Brie's real beliefs. But I didn't think it was very entertaining. Back to the main storyline. Nattie Neidhart is excited about a feature spread in Flex Magazine. The WWE is sending her to New York City to promote it. I know what you're thinking. What the hell is Flex Magazine? It's for bodybuilding enthusiasts. Legendary bodybuilder Joe Weider started it in 1983. The main purpose of the magazine is to sell supplements. Most of the content is paid for and there's enough of a crossover that the WWE will pay to have Nattie and other wrestlers appear in the magazine. But I don't know if anyone actually would buy the magazine just to see Nattie. She thinks it's a big deal but it isn't. And the WWE knows this and have Summer Rae point it out. But Nattie gets a trip to New York to promote it and she decides to turn it into a romantic getaway with TJ. That's when things go off the rails. Normally when she goes on a trip, Nattie has her mom housesit and take care of the cats. But her mom isn't available and somehow Ariane talks Nattie into letting her and idiot boyfriend Vincent housesit. That is obviously a bad idea that contradicts common sense. Then TJ invites his sister to come on the New York trip. I guess he didn't get the memo about the romantic getaway. When TJ gives his sister an expensive spa treatment and the five thousand bucks for an inflatable castle, Nattie is upset because he didn't discuss it with her. He says that when she gave her parents a car, she didn't discuss it with him. So they are fighting during the whole trip. Meanwhile Ariane and Vincent host a drunken party and one of the cats gets out of the house. While searching for the cat, they come across Nattie's neighbour who calls Nattie and blows the whistle on them. Nattie and TJ stop fighting and pack to go home. Fortunately the cat is found and disaster is averted. But you don't have to be a rocket scientist to see that this stupidity could have been avoided. Ugh! Enjoy the video!
