Last week’s episode ended on a bit of a cliffhanger.
Apparently, Nikki Bella’s period had been two weeks late, so her mother insisted that she take a pregnancy test. Just then, Nikki’s boyfriend Artem walked in, so, of course, he was there for the test. I thought it was kind of odd that Artem stood in the bathroom with Nikki while she took the test.
Because the test was negative, there was a question as to whether or not Nicole and Artem were sad. Nicole was relieved, but Artem was bummed. Therefore, it was no surprise that Nicole was all of a sudden concerned that she wouldn’t be able to have kids.
She chatted about her nerves with her makeup artist on a photo shoot. The artist assured Nicole that she would probably be fine, citing the example of her sister who had given birth for the first time at 46! However, Nicole was still nervous, because she asked Artem if he would still be with her if she could not have kids. Artem said he didn’t know. While this might have concerned Nicole usually she had bigger problems in this episode.
The Bella sisters were fighting again in this episode, this time it seems as though Nicole and Artem have overstayed their welcome at Brie and Bryan’s house. Bryan seemed to want them to go in order to spend more time with his wife, but she spent more time with guests. Their marriage seems to be going through a rough patch and even when the couple attempted to plan time together, Brie seemed to have other plans.
Even when Bryan attempted to plan a trip in order to spend more time with his wife, she suggested he spend with Artem as that was one of the reasons that the sisters fought. I think that the main reason that they fought was because Brie didn’t want to fight with Bryan, so fighting with Nikki was easier. However, the couple is still having problems, so that means more drama on Total Bellas.
