Brie Bella accuses sister Nikki Bella of walking on eggshells around John Cena before split
Brie and Nikki were talking of shifting the then-upcoming wedding from Cena's hometown and Nikki couldn't think about talking to John about it
Brie Bella had expressed concerns about her twin sister Nikki's relationship with John Cena months before Nikki decided to call off her wedding to John Cena.
In a new clip from the season 3 premiere of the show 'Total Bellas', the sisters are seen getting into an argument while they are discussing Nikki's then-upcoming wedding. The argument breaks out when Brie asks her sister whether she could shift the wedding to Napa instead of Cena's hometown of West Newbury, Massachusetts.
"I don’t understand why you have to walk on eggshells with him with this wedding. It’s like absolutely ridiculous. Sometimes you just tiptoe around John to not make him angry and I think that’s bull—-" to which Nikki replies, "Isn’t that what wives are supposed to do?"
Brie goes on to express her concern that Nikki is "sacrificing" too much for Cena to which Nikki says she is not going to "ruin" her chances of getting married.
"You have made a lot of sacrifices. It’s about time John started making some. He’s freaking lucky to marry you and it bothers me that you’re going to sacrifice all of it just ‘cause you’re grateful that John proposed to you," Brie says.
The Dancing with the Stars alum, Nikki Bella, resorted to calling off her engagement just three weeks before she and John Cena were going to be walking down the aisle. As reported by PEOPLE, a source shared that she decided to call off the engagement due to their different stances on marriage and having children.
The wedding would have happened almost a year after John Cena proposed to Nikki on live TV during WrestleMania33 in April last year.
Despite their relationship not working out, John Cena stills sees a future with Nikki Bella and the 41-year-old actor spoke to Today where he gave co-hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb an update on his life.
"It’s up and it’s down. I’ve always been honest with you guys, I also don’t want to ruin the viewers’ morning by giving them a bowl of sadness soup. It’s been up and it’s been down. It’s been incredibly reflective, which is amazing, but it’s very difficult. I had my heart broken out of nowhere — well, for me it was out of nowhere.
"And anyone who has experienced that knows that it comes with a series of bad feelings. But I’ve looked at myself every day and I’ve tried to evaluate myself and the woman that I love," he shared. Cena also went on to add that he is most definitely not looking for any other relationships.
"But for anyone speculating on like what I’m doing with my life now. I still love Nicole, I still would love to marry Nicole, I still would love to have a family with Nicole. There was an unfortunate set of circumstances where our relationship ended. There’s been a lot of speculation recently about me being seen in public, and everyone’s been like, ‘Oh John Cena’s enjoying the single life.’ No, I was supposed to be married and have a honeymoon over these two weeks. I am in my house alone surrounded by these emotionally strong memories. And every day from 6 to 9 I get out of the house and talk to strangers as social interaction," Cena shared.
The wrestler also added, "I don’t want anybody else. I love Nicole and I’m really trying to support her in her trying to find whatever it is she wants that made this fall apart in the first place."
"If you look at me five years ago: stubborn, selfish, self-focused, life had always been about me. And then slowly over time this woman waltzes in and just steals my heart, and whether I wanna realize it or not, she becomes my number one. So I’m willing to go back on all of these things that I say, and a lot of them I would hang onto just out of stubbornness."
"I won’t have kids,’ and it took a very strong look in the mirror for me to be like, ‘Why? This person is my number one and it’s something that’s very valuable to her. Of course, we can do this, and I think it would be wonderful," he said.
"The point is for anyone out there speculating on what’s going on, I love her. I want to be with her. I want to make her my wife. I want to be the father of her children. I just want us to work and that’s so just from here."
