'Total Bellas': Nikki asks if it's too early to stay together, Artem disagrees: 'If it feels right, it's right'
Artem Chigvintsev and Nikki Bella have been going strong and the two finally decided to move in together
Artem Chigvintsev and Nikki Bella have been going strong and in the season premiere of 'Total Bellas', the two seemed to be taking their relationship to the next level. The couple decided to go lingerie shopping but one thing that Artem did not expect would happen was serious talk. While he thought their trip to the store would be pleasant, Nikki decided to bring the topic of moving in together.
At the beginning of the episode, Nikki had suggested that Artem could move in with her once her house in Phoenix has been built. While the two decided to let go of the conversation then, Nikki thought that it would be best to discuss it than leave things unsaid. Artem wondered if Nikki brought him to the store just to bring up the topic again.
However, Nikki made it clear that her excitement was making it hard for her not to bring that topic while adding the fear was setting in. "I just get really excited but then I don't think about the future part of it. Do you know what I mean?" Nikki said. "Like, this isn't playing house." Artem seemed unsure at first if they were making the right move or if they were moving too fast.
Nikki realized that it might be good for them to live separately while adding that it could be a "true test" of their relationship. Her feelings changed when she was asked by her sister, Brie Bella and her friends if she was moving too fast. Many suggested that Artem's removal from 'Dancing With The Stars' might be the reason that Nikki was pushing the relationship.
Nikki asked Artem if he really felt that they were taking things too fast. "I mean, am I feeling like it's too soon? I don't know," he responded. "You never know until you try, I guess." However, looking at Nikki make the decision of staying separately, Artem decided to agree.
"It doesn't feel good because when I agree to something, I really think through that," Artem said while speaking to the camera. "And I don't want to be in a position where I have to be, 'Oh, okay. Well, that's not happening now.' It's kind of like—not playing with feelings—but that's how it felt."
Later, he took to his Twitter account to say that he did not think they were moving too fast. "Who else is feeling that Nicole and I are moving fast? I’m a big believer that if it feels right for both of us it’s the right thing to do," he wrote. Fans supported him but it seemed like Nikki had made up her mind. Will this change later?
'Total Bellas' airs on Thursdays at 9 pm ET on E!
