There were people within WWE that have been working with the WWE Network who were surprised to hear about E! picking up the WWE Divas reality show. Some didn't know about it until it was announced online earlier this week. The Divas reality show was originally earmarked for the WWE Network.
Back in February, a WWE production memo stated that the planned start date for the Network was fall 2013. There's a feeling with the Divas show getting picked up by E!, that's a strong indication that the Network won't be ready by fall or likely anytime in 2013.
