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?

* Melina noted on Twitter last night that she wasn’t allowed to attend last night’s Raw taping in San Jose. Melina dropped off boyfriend, John Morrison, at the venue for last night’s show, noting: “Met some great fans at the HP Pavillion Arena today while dropping John off. You guys were awesome. I tell ya! You guys are HardCore!!!”

Responding to a fan question about whether this meant she was back in WWE, Melina responded that she wasn’t allowed to enter the building: “No. I’m still fired. I had this trip planned prior. I stand by my man. I was told I couldn’t go IN the arena 2 watch. Funny.”

* SHIMMER announced three more names for the October 1st and 2nd tapings in Berwyn, IL: Leva Bates, Jessie McKay and Athena.

Bates is part of the Regeneration X tag team with Allison Danger. Meanwhile, McKay will be competing for the SHIMMER Championship on September 3rd in Australia in a triple threat match with Madison Eagles and Nicole Matthews.
