Rumors were swirling last week that Naomi could possibly be getting a spin-off reality show after reports that cameras followed her and her husband Jimmy Uso and his brother Jey Uso in Hawaii last week. In an interview with Chuck Carroll of CSB Sports, Naomi sheds some light on the rumors, confirms her return for the next season of Total Divas and comments on the upcoming Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder match. Highlights of the interview below.
Details her upcoming TV project: “I can’t say what it is, but I can tell you it’s for Nickelodeon. Oh, man. I can’t speak on it yet, but it’s definitely a fun show, a kid-friendly show. We went out there and filmed it for four days, and it was a lot of fun. You guys will be seeing that in November, I believe. Yeah. It’s not a reality show or anything like that. I wish I could tell you! I’ve probably already told you too much already! It’s just a one-time thing that we filmed, and we had a blast. It’s actually a kid’s show. It’s a race like a tournament. You guys will see it later this year.”
On returning for the next season of Total Divas: “Oh, yeah. I just got the info this week. So, I will be back on this season. Thank goodness, because I probably would have blown a gasket if I was off another season. Yes, we are on this season, and we have so much for y’all this season. There are a lot of changes and a lot going on in our lives right now outside of work. We’ve got two champions in the house, so we tend to butt heads a lot.”
On the upcoming Women’s Money in the Bank match: “I’m so proud of our division. I am so happy that we have this moment and opportunity to make history. I wish so bad that I could have been in this match, because it’s a match that I always knew that, if we ever had a ladder match, I knew that I would be in that match. I was going to show out and kill it and do all of these crazy things that I would risk and do. But on the sweet side, I’m not in it because they’re coming after my title. It’s bittersweet that I’m not in the match but I’m happy for our women because we’ll show up and stand up like we always do. It’s just really cool to be part of history. This match will always be remembered. We have an amazing group of women to showcase in this match. I’m just excited for it and [to] see who will be my opponent.”
Naomi also discusses initially pitching her Feel the Glow gimmick and winning back the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 33.
