Not Your Average Spinoff: How Is 'Miz & Mrs' Connected To 'Total Divas'?

Before "Miz & Mrs" got its start in 2018, the duo were featured on another reality series based in the world of the WWE.

With “Miz & Mrs” returning for its third season on USA Network on June 6, it’s worth taking a look back at how the most dynamic, powerhouse couple in the WWE got their start in the reality TV game. 

Before they were headlining “Miz & Mrs” and letting cameras behind the scenes of their wild at-home life, Mike “The Miz” Mizanin and Maryse Ouellet were just a couple who met through the WWE. Their first foray into having cameras fixed on them outside the ring was through appearing alongside other Superstars on the E! reality series, “Total Divas.” 

Maryse, who married The Miz in 2014, joined the hit series as a main cast member in 2016 for Seasons 6 and 7 alongside fellow Divas Brie and Nikki Bella, Eva Marie, Paige, Naomi, and more. At the time, Maryse had a bit of beef with Brie, but the two were able to move past it and the entire experience prompted Maryse to get more involved with the WWE. 

Throughout those two seasons, viewers got to see Maryse and Mike's at-home life, including her trying to turn him into a vegetarian, them dealing with The Miz’s hectic travel schedule, and the moment they learned they were going to be parents. Clearly, the audience fell in love with their personalities and dynamic, which is why they were given their very own spinoff. 

In 2018, “Miz & Mrs” debuted on USA Network as a kind of spinoff to “Total Divas.” Unlike the other series, this one focused entirely on the couple and their family life, which includes her mother, Marjolaine. The first season focused heavily on the couple’s big move from Los Angeles to Austin immediately after she gave birth to their first daughter, Monroe Sky Mizanin. 

Two seasons later, the couple are parents to another daughter, Madison Jade Mizanin and going as strong as ever both in the ring and outside of it as the infamous Mizanin family. They will continue to show off their particular brand of awesomeness in Season 3 of “Miz & Mrs,” which is set to debut on USA Network on June 6 with back-to-back episodes at 11 and 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.
