In the above interview with ET Canada, The Bella Twins are talking about... wait for it... JOHN CENA!
And Nikki tackles the “it’s a work” speculation about her break-up with Cena head on, saying that has been really painful for her to hear:
“I think sometimes people don’t realize how you can affect them. It’s kind of like when we try to talk to cyberbullies and tell them ‘you have no idea how you’re affecting people’. It’s - I’m a human being. I’m a human being that literally went through a break-up and everyone’s been through a break-up, and think of how we feel. So mine has just been blown-up and then people have also been telling me I’m faking it. So you’re now saying that my heartache is fake and that makes it even harder. It’s just like, what can I do right? And that’s just really tough.”
Which, as someone who’s come to believe that while it quite possibly could have been real at one point, it’s now being used as a storyline/promotional tool for Total Bellas... sorry? But also not, because I’m not the one who keeps bringing it up?
And saying things like this isn’t going to make that speculation go away:
“That’s what makes me so much more excited for Total Bellas to premiere this Sunday is because you’re just finally gonna see the journey of where it unfolds, and where the downs start to happen, and then the speculations are gonna go away, and the judgement and the people thinking like, they’re doing this for the show, or this - whatever it is - and that’s what makes me really excited for this season to come out because after being here this week? It’s been tough.”
Tune in Sunday night (May 20) to E! for the season three premiere to find out!
Or, if that’s going to tempt you to harrass Nikki with your theories about her public private life, don’t.
