Trinity was chosen in July 2013 to appear as a primary cast member on the reality television program “Total Divas,” which was created by WWE and E!
Tons of Funk disbanded on December 15, 2013, during the TLC pay-per-view, after Trinity, Cameron, and Tensai grew tired of Clay’s attitude.

After losing to AJ Lee and Paige in a tag team match, a fight broke out between Cameron and Trinity, leading to the formal dissolution of “The Funkadactyls” on July 7, 2014.

On August 23, 2015, during “SummerSlam,” three teams were eliminated as a result, and Naomi’s squad lost.
Team B.A.D, which consisted of Trinity, Tamina, and Sasha Banks, remained a unit for the remainder of the year but finally broke up once Banks announced her resignation. After Banks left, a feud developed, and at Fastlane, Banks and her partner Lynch defeated Trinity and Tamina in a tag team match.
