Default Is Total Divas scripted?

Long time WWE fan, but I've never watched Total Divas aside from the previews/commercials. They seem to break kayfabe a lot, but is it just a scripted version of "reality"?

A better question would be "Is there any reality show that's NOT scripted."

Yes it is. I haven't watched it but I'm certain that it is scripted, given that all reality shows are scripted.

Alot of people are going to say it is just because of their misconceptions of reality TV. But honestly it isn't. Have you seen the Bella's "act" on raw and smackdown? Yea it's horrible right? Haha well if you watch even one episode of total divas you'll see they're completely different and natural and real. That alone should be proof. Plus Naomi and cam did a recent interview stating that what you see is what you get and that it's real. Just watch one episode and you'll see that they're completely real due to the fact that they can't act to save their lives on raw.

I watched an episode, plenty of it seemed real enough. I think people are oversimplifying how scripted reality TV shows really are. In general, unscripted is cheaper than scripted because you don't have to pay anyone to write a script. It stands to reason that the producers would only want to spend the money if and when there is nothing worth filming. WWE on the road, touring the world....how often will there be nothing going on?































Most likely, some parts of the show will be scripted and other parts will not be scripted.

Let Me See Total Divas has Producers, Directors, Script Writers, Hair Stylists, Make Up Artists, choreographers, Actors, Actresses, yes it is scripted and so is every other "Reality Show". If you want Programming that isn't scripted try watching High School Sports, College Sports or Profesional Sports.































The Fans aren't scripted. My brother and I have been at some of those shows that WWE shot footage of and no one handed us scripts.

The conversations are real but they do get them to do stuff when they want, just like every Reality Show. If they want to people to get in a fight, they will just tell one of the guys to get the other person riled up. I remember seeing a show where they talked about how Reality Shows were done and thats how most of the fights start. Same with the romantic scenes, the writers tell them to be more lovey dovey because it's better for ratings. It's not like their emotions and what they say is fake, its just the egg them on to say the things rather then it being spur of the moment like you see on the show.
