News in Brief: EVE vs Ice Ribbon Looking for New Venue, ArenaChicks, Melina to Dance?, Bellas & Lilian Reunite & More

You bring the coffee, we’ll bring the news! This is Diva Dirt’s news in brief, giving you the 411 on some of the little news items from the past couple of days. Let’s delve in, shall we?

* Bad break for Pro-Wrestling: EVE and Ice Ribbon as the venue they were going to hold their joint event later this year is no longer an option. The companies had teamed with 1PW to put on two shows on October 8th and 9th only to have the 1PW cancel its entire shows.

EVE posted on their Twitter page that they are now looking for a new venue for EVE vs Ice Ribbon:

Statement coming later on but due to 1PW cancelling their upcoming shows on Oct 8 & 9 we are being forced to change the venue for our events. Going through pros and cons in which back up venue to go with. Soon as we’ve made a decision we’ll let you know :-)

We’ll keep you updated on the new venue.

* Amber O’Neal‘s ArenaChicks is in action tonight at midnight. The show takes place at ICP’s Gathering of the Juggalos in Illinois. Card is O’Neal vs Jessicka Havok, Sassy Stephie vs Allysin Kay vs Brittany Force, Angel Orsini vs Josie/Lady JoJo/Sojo Bolt, Epiphany & Jenny Star vs CJ Lane & Taryn Shay and finally, Jazz vs Izza Belle Smothers (Mickie Knuckles).

* Will Melina go dancing? The A-List Diva’s fanbase has been staunchly pushing ABC to add Melina to the cast for the next season of Dancing with the Stars. Each season, ABC takes suggestions from viewers of the show via its official website. Melina’s fans came out in full force, launching a Twitter petition and suggesting her on ABC.com.

Other women in wrestling lobbying to hit the ballroom are Velvet Sky, Shelly Martinez and Jackie Moore.

If you want to see any of those ladies on the show, you can suggest them here.

Well, Melina does have some time on her hands so she could be a good choice for the show when it launches in September. On fans lobbying for her to join the show, Melina wrote:

I hope I can make u all proud. I’m going to keep going. Even if I don’t get DWTS, there will b a next time. As for wrestling I’m not done yet!

* We love a happy reunion here at Diva Dirt. They make us all teary-eyed as we rush to YouTube to celebrate the good ol’ days. The latest Divas reunited? Lilian Garcia and the Bella Twins.

All together now… aw!

Check out pictures of the trio at Lilian’s Twitter page.

* TV tonight includes Alicia Fox vs Tamina for WWE Superstars. Over in TNA, Mickie James faces Madison Rayne and Tara & Ms Tessmacher take on ODB and Jackie on Impact Wrestling.

* There’s a new TNA Spin Cycle on YouTube featuring Angelina Love and Mickie James. It’s in two parts. Part one was released last week and part two this week. Watch both parts below:

* Today’s Diva Dirt Woman of the Day is Naomi. Hayyyy!

    I’d love for Melina to be in DWTS. Can’t wait to watch Alicia vs Tamina…even though reports say it was short.

    Melina and Dancing with the Stars? I don’t know. It all depends on who makes the cut. If this season’s lineup is stacked with A-listers, Melina stands no chance.

    Melina should definitely go on DWTS, she’s extremely athletic, she moves like a work of art!

    Velvet, Shelly and Jackie all trying for DWTS, interesting. If it’s for major exposure why not? Makes me wonder if certain Female indy workers tried their hand in certain other entertainment entities or shows to raise their stock and bring people over to their world in Pro Wrestling even if they don’t qualify for WWE/TNA.
