Hey Upper East Siders! Do we have a scoop (or two) for you today; move over S and B… there’s two new bitchy BFFs on the block and these two don’t settle things with texts either. Meet N and V, WWE’s newest Diva double act. Natalya and Victoria posed for these hot shots to accompany an article in this week’s Diva Dish at WWE.com. I have to say, both look gorgeous.

Victoria + Natalya = BBF 4-Ever
Two of SmackDownâ€™s most devious Divas seem to be joined at the hip lately. Whether itâ€™s in the ring, in the Divasâ€™ locker room or out on the town, Victoria and Natalya are inseparable. Theyâ€™ve even been spotted sporting custom-made, matching â€œBest Friendsâ€ T-shirts and necklaces. Diva Dish recently sat down for a chat (or should we say ego-fest?) with the BFFs.
â€œI went shopping today. I got us matching necklaces. We had special custom T-shirts made that say â€˜Best Friendsâ€™ and theyâ€™re a split heart, just like the necklace,â€ Victoria told Diva Dish.
â€œYou went all out and it was such a surprise because May 27 was my birthday,â€ Natalya chimed in. â€œI came into the building and this little one over here had a package waiting for me. She went out and got the shirts, and had them custom made for me. I thought I was going to cry, but you know, being third-generation, we donâ€™t cry.â€
â€œWe donâ€™t cry! Thereâ€™s no crying in wrestling!â€ Victoria replied.
â€œYou can give me a high-five on that one, girlfriend!â€ Natalya said, as the duo erupted in laughter.
Victoria said sheâ€™s grown so close to Natalya since she became a Diva, they act like sisters. And the Divas arenâ€™t joking when they say they finish each otherâ€™s sentences.
â€œOne thing I have to say, and I believe this in my heart of hearts, is that what you have that I was most attracted to, is that youâ€™re violent and original,â€ Natalya said to Victoria. â€œAnd for me itâ€™s like, there is not another woman who I can find who can get on my level to be violent and original. She brings it. Every single night thereâ€™s just this energy and I feed off it.â€
â€œWeâ€™re very lucky because I feed off her, because sheâ€™s very talented. Youâ€™re very original, too. Iâ€™ve learned wrestling skills from you. Your confidence level is amazing out there,â€ Victoria told her best bud.
â€œYou are amazing,â€ Natalya said.
â€œYou are amazing,â€ Victoria responded.
â€œWe are â€” â€ Natalya started.
â€œAmazing!â€ Victoria finished.
When Diva Dish informed the pals they were two of the most downloaded Divas on WWE.com in recent weeks, Victoria admitted she was a little bit surprised.
â€œIâ€™m so used to people downloading those little skinny girls, like Kelly Kelly and Michelle â€“ the cookie-cutter blonds. Now it shows weâ€™re being appreciated as athletes with wrestling abilities â€“ that we can back up what we do,â€ Victoria said.
But Natalya wasnâ€™t shocked she and her best friend are making waves online.
â€œNaturally, being the first third-generation Diva in WWE, it just felt right when I heard I was one of the most downloaded Divas,â€ Natalya said.
â€œPeople want to know what Iâ€™m up to, what Iâ€™m wearing, what Iâ€™m talking about, what weâ€™re doing, what weâ€™ve been doing â€“ they just want to see Natalya and Victoria. She doesnâ€™t give herself enough credit, but this woman is amazing. I know itâ€™s not Valentineâ€™s Day, but I wouldnâ€™t be able to do it without you,â€ Natalya said, looking at her friend.
â€œAwwww. You give me a hug. Come here, BFF!â€ Victoria said, embracing her friend and then continuing: â€œWe have good chemistry in the ring and outside the ring. I think it shows in our performance. We put our hearts and souls into every single match. We try to be the best, because you know what?â€
â€œWhen you mess with the best, you go down with the rest. Yeah, baby!â€ the two said in unison.
