SoCal Val is joined by Velvet Sky for part two of the Australian fan Q&A. For part one, click here.
Torrie Wilson, eat your heart out, there’s a new cover girl in town… WWE’s foxy French Diva Maryse!
Glamour photographer Paul Buceta often teams up with Maryse and they’re a winning combination when it comes to sleek, sexy and sophisticated photoshoots. It’s no surprise that he’d like Maryse to be on the cover of SESSIONS, but with six possible covers, he’d like fans to vote for their favourite.
You can view all six possible covers and cast your vote by clicking here. I’m really liking covers #1 and #3!
FCW Diva and WWE ring announcer Eden Stiles, often seen on Superstars or lingering at ringside next to Justin Roberts on Raw, recently had her profile added to the WWE website. Welcome to the big leagues, girl!
Usually, after a profile is put up, fans tend to anticipate a debut photoshoot. The wait is over, as Eden – real name Brandi Alexis Reed – is all smiles in her grey-backdropped debut, dressed in a glittering strapless gold dress.

(Expect a rather chatty piece, I’m still excited. I’m sure you can forgive me!)
When I got to The Entertainer, at around 5.30pm, fans were already lining up inside the store. The signing was supposed to start at 5.45 and end around 7, but Mickie arrived at about 7ish, thanks to traffic. I didn’t mind, as I’d made a few friends with people in the line – I guess this is where I give a little shoutout to Tom, Craig, the other Tom that looks like Jassa from Art Attack and everyone else’s names I’ve forgotten because I’m quite bad with names! Either way, they’re awesome, so this is a shoutout to you guys! :) – so I didn’t realise that I’d been waiting around two hours. While we were waiting, TNA publicity photographers took a few photos of fans, who had signs, programs and other merchandise. I had my picture taken a couple of times. When we got to the front, I was excited and started getting snap-happy with my iPod while clutching my drawing pad, hoping Mickie would like my drawing. Doesn’t that sound rather 5-year-old-ish of me?
Mickie and I exchanged “hello”s and I asked her if she could sign an extra card for my friend and she did… Yes, Chloe, I mean for you! I got you a signed card because I’m an awesome Twinny, yep yep. I then shyly showed her my drawing and she said she loved it, calling it “a little Japanimation”. She gave me a hug (I feel special, she didn’t hug anyone else around me, nor did I ask for one ♥). I’m so glad she liked it! I then told her about OSD, as I had the URL written on a piece of paper behind the drawing, and she told me that she recognises the Twitter account! I was beyond flattered and I thanked her.
When it was my friends’ turns to have their pictures/autographs, I played the role of cameraman/paparazzo and decided to bring up a little bit more of a conversation by asking if she’d seen the Smurf toys at the front of the store, but she hadn’t passed the table she was sitting at since she got there, but had her eyes on a big My Little Pony display piece.

Last week on OSDNTM:
A new challenge winner was crowned! Eve Torres walked away the winner in the Candid Camera challenge. Unfortunately for Melina, she recieved the lowest amount of votes and was sent packing.
The queen has returned! After falling behind in the past two challenges, Maryse once again claims the top spot as she emerges the winner of the Back In Black challenge!
Unfortunately fan favorite A.J. Lee, the panel has spoken. She is not top model material and is therefore eliminated from the competition.
This week’s challenge: Geared Up
The same rules as the previous weeks apply. You’re voting for the Diva who best represents this category. Be sure to view ALL photos before casting your judgement. You can view them by clicking the thumbnails below. Since we are quickly approaching the end of the competition, you will now only be allowed two votes per day. Voting will last for one week as usual.
SoCal Val presents 20 Questions with a TNA Superstar, uploaded on TNA’s Australian Youtube channel and her guest is none other than crowd favourite Velvet Sky. TNA’s Australian fans took to Facebook and Twitter to ask Velvet Sky twenty questions, including asking what she thinks of the Knockouts division. What she has to say is rather interesting, to say the least… Watch the video above to find out, it’s the first question asked.
This video is only part one, so we’ll have to wait for TNA to upload part two.
Vickie Guerrero excuses Triple H. She is being cougarlicious. Her shirt has no back! Cody Rhodes looks so sexilicious. Vickie goes away with the glass jaw. ;)
Nattie and beth are seen backstage. We see a promo on Kelly Kelly. Nice promo! Kelly Kelly and Eve come out. Eve now has bangs.
Now The Divas of Doom fly out on their flying monkeys. Eve and Beth start out. Eve gets doubleteamed by the Sisters of Destruction. They really work her over. K2 gets the tag. She spanks Beth. Nattie breaks up a pin. Now the Divas of Mean distract K2 and Beth pins K2 for fun. Beth and Nattie bump fists with each other for fun.
Vickie comes out for Zack Ryder and Dolphy’s match. Dolphy has Jack Swagger in his corner as well. Vickie distracts the ref and Jack Swagger hangs up Ryder. Ziggle and Swagger try to be bad so Air Boom smacks them. Teddy Long tells Vickie to find a partner because Ziggy and Swaggy have a six man match against the WOO WOO AIR BOOM! Mason Ryan returns and is bad to Ziggy Swaggy. Vickie screams everywhere like a crazy lady. Then she gives Jack Swagger the riot act.
David Otunga is backstage with Vickie, Dolphy, Christian, and Cody Rhodes. They are having a meeting of the stupid minds. Sorry, I’m very MAD at Vickie and Cody associating and being near that idiothole OTUNGA!
OMG! Alberto Del Rio has another YELLOW CAR! YEY!!!!!!!!!!!’
Again, Beth Phoenix will face Kelly Kelly for the Butterfly Belt.
Below is Superstars Spoiler!
What better way to celebrate football season than having some quirky, pin-up style football themed photoshoots from the TNA Knockouts! Five of the fiercest footballers – Tara, Brooke Tessmacher, Mickie James, SoCal Val and Traci Brooks – have teamed up with Lee South and don’t they look fabulous? Much like any other cheesy photoshoot-themed posts OSD has had in the past, there will be ratings… A
Ballin’ (No, that’s basketball…) Touchdown ranking out of five footballs.
After you’ve checked out all of the shoots and the comments, we’d like to hear what you have to say by voting below!
I’d like to thank Kris and Sean for helping me out with the information regarding American Football, I’m not exactly UK-footy-savvy, let alone having any knowledge on US football! Apologies if any information isn’t entirely accurate. I tried!
Tara – Chicago Bears
Tara adds a funky twist to the Bears’ uniform, opting for an orange bikini top with her jersey and super-cute girlie boxers. In typical Tara fashion, she does something a little bit extra by donning ’54′ on her stomach, which makes her shoot more football-ish. While casually working navy, orange and white like a pro, Tara efforlessly maintains a seductive vibe throughout the photoshoot. Her shoot was definitely one of my favourites.
Congratulations are in order as former WWE Diva and 2007 Diva Search contestant Lena Yada married her husband, Disturbed frontman David Draiman, yesterday!
TNA Knockout Tara attended the wedding and was sure to update her Twitter followers with news from the wedding:
Love is in the air. @LenaYada is getting married today. Can’t wait to see her walk down the isle. Getting tissue ready for the tears of joy
Wow! What a beautiful wedding. I cried several times. The most romantic wedding I have ever seen. Mazel Tov! I love you @LenaYada
Congratulations to the newlywed couple!
