Sonya Deville Talks Time On WWE Tough Enough, Giving LGBTQ Community A Voice

TV Insider recently interviewed WWE Superstar Sonya Deville. 

Deville will be a cast member on the new season of Total Divas Season 0 that premieres tonight on the E! Network. Here are the highlights: 

Being on Tough Enough:

“When I did Tough Enough, it was in a completely different place in my life. It was a whirlwind experience. It was more nerve-wracking then because there were high stakes on the line. I hadn’t made it in the business yet. There was more of a competitive spirit in trying to make things happen. On Total Divas, I’m blessed to be in WWE and sharing my journey and story with people who never knew it. Fans get to know a different side of me, which is super exciting.”

On being open about her sexual orientation on Total Divas:

“I know when people watch Total Divas there is going be a lot to relate to when it comes to my relationship to my girlfriend and being part of the LGBTQ community. Letting a whole new demographic able tune in and say, ‘Wow, I’m gay. She is gay.’ I want to make them feel comfortable and know they have a voice from the WWE now.”
