'Total Bellas' Season 4: Who is Maya Laurinaitis and why does everyone already hate her?
Nikki Bella recently announced that her stepsister Maya Laurinaitis will be joining the show as a new cast member and not everyone seems to be thrilled with the addition
'Total Bellas' is set to make its fourth season premiere next week and is already stirring up controversy. Nikki Bella recently announced that her stepsister Maya Laurinaitis will be joining the show as a new cast member and not everyone seems to be thrilled with the addition.
Last season, Nikki was accused of using her split with John Cena as a publicity stunt. At the time, the ratings of the show fluctuating and fans accused Nikki on cashing in on the split and even alleged that the second split had been staged just for the cameras. Nikki and John had got back together after their initial split for a while hoping to work things out — unfortunately, they soon parted ways for good. With Maya coming on to the next season, fans think that the twins are using the platform to promote their sibling — well, although it is still 'Total Bellas' the last time we checked.

The countdown begins! Next Sunday is the season premiere of @totalbellas 👯♀️ Welcome my sister @mayalaurinaitis to the new season. It’ll be fun to watch her as she aspires to model (omg this photo!) and have hopes to be a WWE Superstar one day. (If @mrjohnlaurinaitis let’s her lol) 📸 @amaes_photography #totalbellas #bellafam #bellaarmy #maya
Maya is the daughter of the Bella twins' mom Kathy Colace and former WWE wrestler and producer John "Johnny Ace" Laurinaitis. She's an aspiring model who also wants to become a WWE Superstar someday just like her older twin sisters. Maya doesn't appear to have any significant achievements for the internet to see and that is what seems to be bothering fans.
Since she comes from a famous family, it appears unfair to them that she would get such exposure, just because of it. One fan hinted that they should rename the show something along the lines of another popular one, writing, "Keeping Up With The Bellas".
Another wrote, "I’m not interested in watching someone else try to promote themselves through your show." A third fan said, "This is that awful John Laurinaitis' daughter. No one liked 'Johnny Ace', no one liked John Laurinaitis and no one likes Maya either." One fan even said, "Another attention seeking drunk drama queen on the show what a surprise"

We aren't sure about when she will be coming in for the season, but we know for sure that you won't see her in the season premiere.
The first episode will be all about Nikki's and Brie's current life scenario. Introducing her baby sister, Nikki said in an Instagram post alongside a gorgeous black and white shot of Maya, "It’ll be fun to watch her as she aspires to model (omg this photo!) and have hopes to be a WWE Superstar one day." Appearing on the show would definitely be a great place for Maya to start her career in showbiz and with the Bella twins' help, the sky could be the limit. However, it remains to be seen if she's really got potential to shine.
Catch the season premiere of 'Total Bellas' on January 13 at 9 pm ET/PT on E!.
