Sonya Deville Replaces Lana On Season 9 Of Total Divas

Sonya Deville is the newest cast member of "Total Divas."

Deville revealed the news on AfterBuzz TV’s SmackDown After Show. “Part of being a WWE Superstar to me is showing the fans what happens outside of the ring. Who I am in the ring, and in my personal life, is important to defining my character," said Deville. "I am tough for a reason. I have been through things and I am the person I am for a lot of reasons and I love sharing those stories for the fans because it’s relatable.

“And on that topic, I’ll be on Season 9 of Total Divas, which is something I am super excited about.”

Earlier this week, Lana broke the news that she would not be part of the season 9 cast after being told that she was "strongly disliked" the E! Network demographic. You can view Lana's full comments on her and Rusev's removal from the show here.

"Total Divas" premiered on the E! Network on July 28, 2013. There is no premiere date set for season 9.
