Total Bellas began with a bite and ended with the fight! The bite, of course, refers to the bite that Brie and Daniel’s dog, Josie, gave John Cena in episode one. The fight refers to Nikki and Brie’s explosive battle during the season one finale.
It all began with Brie venting to Nikki about how much stress she was under with the combined pressure of dealing with Bryan’s physical and mental health at the end of her wrestling career. Nikki then complained that Brie was spending too much time and energy worrying about Bryan when she should be focused on her own needs and career.
Nikki continued to disrespect Bryan, calling him selfish and saying that she thought that Brie was denying herself happiness in order to focus on ensuring Bryan’s happiness. She also continued harping on the fact that she feels that Brie is not having as much fun as she used to before she met Bryan.
“Ask the girls,” Nikki said, “you have missed so many girls trips.” I think that Nikki just misses having Brie as her party and wine drinking buddy. Maybe Nikki is having difficulty accepting the fact that her twin has changed tastes and is developing into a different person than her sidekick. It is possible that she has never developed her own identity apart from Brie. If so, is this a case of arrested development?
The Bella Twins should have developed their own identities and personalities by now. Perhaps the decision to become tag team act, while a brilliant career move, was not the best thing for the mental development of these two women. Either way, Nikki’s constant insistence that Brie is unhappy is not only annoying to viewers of the show, but it seems to be driving a wedge between her and her sister. Nikki better be careful, or she will soon find herself alienated from the one person she loves most. It didn’t help matters that when Brie tried to end her argument with Nikki, Nikki followed her to pursue the discussion further.
Nikki’s actions caused the argument to escalate. Finally Brie appeared to have had enough of having accusations hurled in her face without hurling some back. She was tired of Nikki disrespecting her man, so she decided to give Nikki a taste of her own medicine by bringing up her true feelings about Nikki’s man, John Cena. “John won’t give you kids and I think it’s f*cking selfish,” said Brie.
I personally think that both Bella sisters should mind their business and stay out of each other’s. I think that their actions were particularly ill bred considering that they had their huge argument only hours before their mother’s wedding to her longtime boyfriend, John Laurinaitis.
Luckily though, the girls had enough class to make up just before their mother’s ceremony began aboard a boat in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
As for the newlyweds, they were blissfully happy sharing their special day with everyone who loved them, and dancing the night away. But, the Bella sisters still had big fish to fry preparing for the epic WrestleMania 32. The sisters went out in style having their seamstress prepare brand-new outfits. Nikki got one even though she wasn’t cleared to perform at WrestleMania.
So, we leave the Bella sisters and the rest of the Total Divas cast ready to perform on the biggest WrestleMania stage ever. So begins the next season of Total Divas, airing next week on E!
