- Syfy sent out a press release touting the ratings success of the Season 3 premiere of Haven, which featured a special appearance from WWE Hall of Famer Edge. From the announcement:

“The season three premiere of Syfy’s hit drama series Haven became the #1 primetime drama on cable in Adults 25-54 during its telecast on Friday, September 21 from 10-11 PM (ET/PT).”

“The delivery of 899,000 Adults 25-54 was up 13 percent from the season two premiere and represented the series’ best delivery in that demo in two years (September 2010).”

“Haven also drew 2.0 million total viewers, up six percent versus the July 2011 season two premiere.”

- Former WWE developmental diva and Tough Enough contestant Ivelisse Velez (Sofia Cortez) recently told Diva-Dirt.com that she was shocked by her release earlier this year:

“It was very hard for me. My whole career basically for eight years or so, pouring heart and soul into something, and everything’s going great and the direction you put all the effort to – and all of a sudden it’s gone. It’s really hard. It’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever gone through other than the thing with Tough Enough, because I’ve given my all.”

She also responded to online reports that “attitude problems” were a factor in her being let go:

“Anywhere you go and you’re a confident woman, you believe in your abilities, and no matter how respectful you are, they’ll label as something in a negative way. It can’t be like, ‘Oh that girl is confident and she respects herself enough to stand up for herself and she knows her value.’ Not everyone will see it that way. Some people see it as, ‘Good, she’s a strong person,’ others may take it the wrong way. I try my best, like anyone else, to be respectful. I am a human being, most probably I’ve made mistakes, but I do know for a fact, I can confidently say, I strive to be as professional as possible. That has more value than anything else.”
