‘Total Bellas’ season 3 episode 4: Brie's mom duties come in between the twins' event and Nikki isn't happy
In the next episode of 'Total Bellas', it seems like Brie is struggling some more with mommy duties and this time it involves the twins' brand and Nikki isn't happy about it.
If you're an avid fan of 'Total Bellas' you know just how much Brie has been struggling with managing time between her busy career and being a mom. It's also been taking a toll on her personally - she's exhausted and emotionally drained and it's been affecting her performance. Remember the suicide dive last week? In the next episode of 'Total Bellas', it seems like Brie is struggling some more and this time it involves the twins' brand and Nikki isn't happy about it.
In this clip from Sunday's all-new 'Total Bellas', Brie tries to break the bad news to Nikki slowly. Nikki being Nikki gets fired up. It's understandable too since she had been getting a lot of flak last week for hurting their "women empowerment brand" because she was being seen with her friend Artem. Nikki had broken down in front of their mom Kathy and had said that she was tired of Brie telling her what to do. "Because I'm a woman, I'm not allowed to go to bars and be seen with guys. But John can do it. He gets praise but everyone comes to me saying, 'You're going to ruin our woman empowerment brand'," she had confessed tearfully. "Artem is a good friend and we spent so much time together but I can't be seen with him because of the timing of everything. I'm so f***ing sick of hiding and so exhausted from it all," she had said adding, "Everyone's telling me how to live and I'm not living how I want to live."
"You can't get mad," says Brie in the clip preparing her sister for the shock. Nikki senses that something is about to go really wrong and snaps back, "Just so you know, any time you start a conversation like that means the person's gonna get mad," she tells her.
"OK, so you might get mad," Brie replies, bracing herself. "But I'm not going to be able to make it to Philadelphia Comic Con." Brie explains to Nikki that she has to stay home and take care of Birdie, her 1-year-old since she and husband Daniel have a pact where at least one parent stays at home. The last time both of them were gone, Brie had been terrified that they were emotionally damaging Birdie. Nikki tells her that she understands her mom duties, but she hates that Brie was breaking the bad news at the last minute.
"You're telling me the day before the event?" she asks Brie, furious that she was ditching again. "Kirby Con I had to take a red-eye and go straight and speak without you. And now it's just happening again," she reminds her twin, who defends herself saying that mom duties come above all and sometimes it has to be last minute. "I said 'yes' to this appearance months ago before I knew I was making a comeback," Brie says, "We said 'yes' to a bunch of appearances, a bunch got added, and everyone's forgetting that I'm a mom."
Things are bound to get tense in the next episode. Watch the clip below:
