Total Divas S8 E5 episode recap: Pink Hair Don’t Care

A lot of trickery and deceit caused plenty of drama on this week’s episode of Total Divas.

Nia Jax tricked her friends, Natalya, Trinity, and Lana into helping her with home improvement projects by inviting them over for a “fun girls weekend.” Once they arrived, however, she quickly put them to work assembling new bookshelves, and putting up shelf paper in her cabinets. Trying to be good friends, the girls at first went along with Nia’s scheme, but quickly they became bored with this. So, they ran away from Nia’s house. At first Nia was furious, but then once her friends explained that they had simply wanted to spend their weekend off having fun rather than working, Nia understood. My advice, Nia, is to simply be honest with your friends, instead of telling them that they are in for a weekend of fun and then making them work; tell them they’re working from the get-go just to avoid confusion.

Nia had another reason to be angry, however, Lana nearly damaged her new house permanently.

Lana had been upset about her lack of recent television time. So, she had been trying everything to get noticed by the talent management at WWE. So, Lana thought that changing her look might impress talent relations more. So she decided to dye her hair pink. The problem was, however, that she didn’t check with the creative team at WWE before dying her hair. Further, whenever Lana dyed it, she was leaning up against Nia’s brand new walls, so they were damaged. Luckily, Lana’s career wasn’t damaged because she dyed her hair back to blonde before anyone could notice.

Meanwhile Paige and the Bella Twins did some female bonding in San Diego. Paige has been having a hard time ever since an injury has sidelined her from wrestling permanently. So, the Bellas took Paige to a place where you can smash up cars with sledge hammers as a form of catharsis. This may not work as a distressing method for everyone, but it certainly added more drama to this episode of Total Divas.
