People: Nikki Bella Gets in Trouble ‘All the Time’ for Spoiling Brie Bella’s Daughter: ‘Birdie Owns Me’

When it comes to 16-month-old Birdie Joe, mom Brie Bella can be the bad cop while her sister Nikki Bella is always the good cop.

“She doesn’t know what no means,” Brie, 34, told PEOPLE Saturday at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas while speaking of how Nikki spoils her daughter. “Like when she’s throwing a little tantrum or something.”

“Nicole has these big open arms and wants to smother her,” she explained. “I’m like, ‘No, you gotta ignore her. Don’t look at her.’ “

Aunt Nikki, Brie’s twin, lets the tot indulge in TV more than Mom does, too. “We like her to watch only one episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse but when she’s with Nicole, she might get four episodes in,” Brie said.

ET: Nikki Bella Confirms She’s Single

Nikki Bella is not quite ready to date following her split from John Cena earlier this year.

ET’s Lauren Zima caught up with Nikki and her twin sister, Brie Bella, at the iHeart Radio Music Festival over the weekend, and she dished all about her relationship status and whether her and John have kept in contact since their split.

“I made a joke about dating, Netflix and black licorice and how it gets boring and it turned into this whole thing where I got quoted saying dating life is boring,” Nikki, 34, said of recent rumors surrounding her dating life. “I was like, ‘No I said Netflix and black licorice and [was boring]’… it’s not what people expect, but I’ve got to admit I am single but I’m not ready for mingling yet.”

“You’ve gotta find yourself first,” Brie emphasized. “You do,” Nikki concurred.

The Total Bellas star noted that she and John, 41, have not spoken recently. “He’s doing him and I’m doing me,” she shared, adding that she’s taking this time to work on herself.

“I slowly feel like I’m doing that,” Nikki said. “I think it’s happiness, and just fully being happy and that’s what I want.”

Though Nikki called the attempts to find herself “scary,” she’s enjoying getting out of her comfort zone.

“I just feel like I’m at that age where I’m discovering who I really am and what I want out of life and just, like, independence,” she said. “Is it scary and you do have these moments of like, ‘What am I doing?’ — and fear. I just kind of am liking the challenge.”

When ET spoke to Nikki earlier this month, she opened up even more about what she’s focusing on since her split.

“I’m really enjoying being an entrepreneur [and] I’m very excited for my comeback at WWE,” Nikki said of her return to wrestling, which is currently being shown on season eight of Total Divas. “I just have this goal in my head of what I want to conquer as an independent woman and I’m going to get there.”

She continued, “You’re better in a relationship when you fully have that self-love and love yourself and know who you are because then you’re just so confident in that relationship.”

Nikki and John got engaged in April 2017, before calling it quits a year later. The pair eventually reconciled and started planning their wedding again, but, as was documented in last season’s Total Bellas, that engagement also ended.

“It’s been, as we all know, a hard few months,” Bella said earlier this month. “[But] the fans have been so supportive and the fact that we got picked up for a new season and people want to continue to watch Brie and I’s journey, it just means so much to us.”

As for the upcoming season of Total Bellas, which is currently filming, Nikki promises lots of happy moments.

“A lot of ups this season, which is great,” Nikki said over the weekend. “I think Brie and I both are just on this very empowering season… I’m back where my home is and my family and those roots.”

Meanwhile, Total Divas airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on E!

From Fendi sunglasses to protein bars, what Nikki Bella always stashes in her purse

There are a few things that Nikki Bella won’t leave home without, and it’s not her signature tank top with “Fearless” emblazoned across the chest.

The professional wrestler and star of “Total Divas” — Season 8 premieres on Sept. 19 — recently gave Yahoo Lifestyle a sneak peek inside her stunning Louis Vuitton Capucines sequin purse. Along with her smartphone and headphones, she keeps a pair of stylish Fendi sunglasses and a compact Louis Vuitton wallet in her bag. “I love this wallet since I switch purses out like no other, so I like to have a really small wallet,” she says.

The 34-year-old, who split from her fiancé, professional wrestler and actor John Cena, earlier this year, is also practical about what she puts in her purse. Bella stores a roll-on perfume in her bag not only to smell good but also avoid that dreaded perfume spillage. She also keeps a protein bar on hand. “Because I’m always on the go and I get hungry,” she says.

But the bulk of her bag reflects her passion for makeup. Along with black eyeliner and concealer, she keeps a makeup sponge stashed in her purse for quick touchups. “Not only do my sister and I cry-laugh a lot, but I also get oily,” shares Bella, who also stars in Total Bellas with twin sister Brie Bella.

The WWE superstar is also a big fan of lipstick and lip gloss. Although Chanel is a go-to lip gloss brand of hers, Bella also loves a good drugstore lip balm. “Chapstick is always a must,” she says. “And I like lipstick and a lip gloss ‘cause, you know, variety is the spice of life.”

Yahoo Interview

The reclamation of WWE’s Brie Bella

First and foremost, Brianna Danielson is a mother.

Unlike most, however, she is also a WWE superstar, a job that is not only physically grueling in nature, but also brings with it a demanding travel schedule. Despite those factors, when she was approached to make a return to the world of professional wrestling, there wasn’t any hesitation – Brie Bella was ready to make a return to the ring.

“I’ve been sitting back as a fan of WWE watching these women do incredible things, making history, breaking barriers and I sat at home wanting to be a part of it,” Bella told Yahoo Sports. “When this opportunity came up, I just said yes without thinking.”

Bella, who alongside her sister Nikki form the Bella Twins team, initially stepped away from WWE after WrestleMania 32 in 2016. At the time, Bella decided to put her family first – she is married to WWE star Daniel Bryan (real name: Bryan Danielson) – leaving right as the company’s “Women’s Evolution” was about to kick into high gear.

Nikki Bella on her journey from Hooters waitress to WWE Superstar (Yahoo Lifestyle)

Twelve years ago, Nikki Bella and her identical twin sister, Brie, were working as waitresses at Hooters in their home state of California. Fast-forward to 2018 and the Bella Twins, as they’re commonly known, are WWE Superstars, reality TV favorites, and brands in and of themselves — with their own clothing line and wine label. It’s been a “12-year journey, which is crazy,” Bella tells Yahoo Lifestyle.

With a spotlight now seemingly perpetually fixed on her life, Bella understands the power she yields, not just as a businesswoman but as a role model. The reason she understands that so well is because as a young girl, it was her role model, Jennifer Lopez, who helped Bella to find her own confidence. “She literally changed my life,” Bella says.

In 1996, Lopez appeared on the cover of the very first issue of Latina magazine. “I remember her talking about her curves and being a Latina, and I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, I go through that!’” Bella says. “I was going through puberty, and being like, ‘Why am I getting all these curves?’ She started to make me love it.”

“I remember being confident at a very young age, like, ‘Yeah this is what I’ve got,’” Bella adds. “And it was literally J.Lo that gave that to me.” Continue reading Nikki Bella on her journey from Hooters waitress to WWE Superstar (Yahoo Lifestyle)

Brie Bella Wants One More Run, With Nikki By Her Side

Brie recently spoke to TVINsider:

Bella can see the genuine joy in the eyes of Bryan when he enters an arena to fan adulation. It’s something the former diva’s champion got a taste of working the historic Royal Rumble. She wants more than a taste — she wants another run.

“My husband really wants us to get pregnant again. I tell him that in my heart I just really want to come back to have a main story,” Bella said.

“Whether it’s a month long or two months, six months. I would love that. I think about how much work one kid is. Bringing another in, I can’t imagine. My sister and I are really pushing hard. We would both love to, especially since the last couple of years it was Nikki was there or I was there. The Bella Twins really haven’t had a run since the ‘Divas Revolution.’

“There are great teams like the IIconics. We would love to go against them. Even if I had a one-off, I’d love to wrestle Asuka, Alexa Bliss. There are so many girls I would wrestle.

“Even with the Mixed Match Challenge. I was like, ‘Bryan, we should do it if it came back. Wouldn’t it be amazing?’ I’m hoping. I told him to give me until next summer. Let me see if I can do something before then. If the boss doesn’t want us back by next summer, we can start trying for babies.”
