Inhale, Exhale is the eighteenth episode of WWE Total Divas.
Nattie is told that she has to undergo correctional surgery. Nikki feels that John is lying. Trinity shoots a music video.
It’s all about saving face on this week’s “Total Divas” on E!, both literally and figuratively. Getting thwacked by Summer Rae apparently left Natalya’s nose slightly rearranged and prone to random bleeds; the injury is inopportune at best when Nattie finds out she’s slated to challenge for the Divas Championship at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs. Disaster seems imminent when Natalya is informed she’ll likely require surgery to fix her nose, which would shelf her for months and nip the title bout in the bud, but Natalya digs deep and goes for it anyway. Despite taking a few nasty kicks to the face in her fateful match, Nattie hangs tough and ends up standing tall even if she falls short of the Divas Title.
Naomi, meanwhile, is in full on freak-out mode as the music video shoot for her debut single fast approaches and Sandra the seamstress has yet to complete her costume. Naomi takes matters into her own hands and after a night of rhinestoning, the outfit is camera-ready … that is, until a preposterous series of misfortunes all but derails the shoot as it’s happening. Not only does she get the video done, even Brodus Clay gives it his seal of approval. She does not, sadly, call her momma to tell her the good news, but it’s still a relief to all involved.
The biggest damage control of the week, however, belongs to John Cena, who Nikki Bella suspects of infidelity when secretive phone calls and business appointments keep interrupting their time together. The timing is especially bad since she’s just gotten her real estate license and is attempting to sell a primo ocean-side condo. Never fear, though: it turns out that while Cena has been speaking to another woman, it’s just an escrow agent who’s helping him buy the very same condo as a gift for Nikki. They don’t call him The Champ for nothin’, folks.
