Brie Bella says she wants to 'protect' Nikki after her split from John Cena
Brie Bella talks about how she wants to protect her sister Nikki after seeing her fallout with John Cena.
Nikki Bella and John Cena called it quits on their relationship just weeks before their wedding and even though it might sound like a news which is enough to break a person, Brie Bella believes her sister is tougher than anyone else out there. Talking to People she said, “She’s good, they call her fearless Nikki for a reason."
“She always puts on that brave face. My sister has more strength than any other woman I know, especially Wonder Woman. She’s bigger than that," she added. Brie added that the fans will get to see what went wrong in their relationship in the upcoming episodes of 'Total Bellas'. Brie added that it was hard for her to watch Nikki go through what she went but she decided to take a step back and allow her to deal with things in her own way.
“I really had to take a step back and allow it and that was really hard for me because it’s my twin," she said. "I want to protect her from everything." She also went on to say that according to her, it was one of the hardest things to film and admired how Nikki chose to deal with the situation.
“This has been the hardest season to film for me because all I want to do is protect her and keep everyone away, but this is what we do," she added. Right from good to bad, the viewers will get to see everything in the show. "I have to give a lot of credit to John and Nicole," she said.
"They really opened up their lives and they really wanted to close the curtain and be like this is it, we’re done. My sister is really great with her fans in a way where she lets them connect with her. She lets them like go, ‘My life isn’t perfect and isn’t easy’ and lets them see the playbook of her life,” she added. In fact, Brie was surprised to see the personal conversation they both allowed the network to film.
“John and Nicole allow the fans to see some very personal conversations, that to be honest, I was mind blown about. [Husband] Brian and I both said, ‘I don’t think we’d allow them to see those conversations’ but they do. I give them a lot of credit. You get to see where they’re at today and see that unravel,” Brie added. The couple announced their split on Twitter with a joint statement but added that they still care about each other.
