Every toned, tanned, and oiled inch of Nikki Bella is pure woman (with the exception of perhaps her chest, which the wrestler admits has been augmented by modern medicine). But mess the wrong way with the 2012 WWE Divas champion, and you’ll get something from Bella that is decidedly unfeminine: the “Nikki Rack Attack,” her signature finisher, when she hoists her opponent up onto her shoulders and then slams down to her knees, causing the fool on her back to fall to the ground, flailing and defeated.
“I can literally lift anything on my shoulders—I know I could even get my own man up on my shoulders,” Bella says. (And that, folks, is saying something, considering her “own man” is 250-pound pro wrestler and bodybuilder John Cena.) Continue reading SI Interview With Nikki Bella
E!’s Total Divas never fails to disappoint with shock, awe and every other emotion a TV show could lead you to feel. But in sitting down with Nattie and The Bella Twins, we found out that there is so much more to come from the third season of the show!
Sitting down at NYY Steakhouse in Manhattan, the women openly discuss how not only will cast member Rosa shake things up this season but also how they all bond as a group – when they’re not fighting, of course! As with any group of gal pals, this crew knows how best to get along: shopping and going out to dinner!
But they also know how to open up about a problem many women face: men. Nikki Bella sheds some light on her relationship with John Cena, and why she feels pressure from friends and family regarding life with the “man of [her] dreams.”
Watch the clip below to find out what else you can expect from Total Divas!
Before she entered the ring for McMahon’s first fight in over 10 years, Brie and twin sister Nikki Bella dished on the most challenging aspects of their over-the-top profession.
“For me, it is about determination and not letting anything bring you down, being OK with hard work and getting through all of that while on the road 52 weeks a year,” Brie told Popdust.
“You have to be fearless and really want it and if you don’t have that hunger in this business then you will get eaten up alive,” warned Nikki, 30. “Being a woman, the travel is the hardest part. When you get on a long flight you feel bloated and dehydrated.”
Many aspects of being a WWE wrestler are decidedly unglamorous, such as having to wrestle in full make-up wreaking havoc on your skin, or “getting on a flight then into a rental car and traveling to the next town,” said Brie. “Getting into the ring is the fun part!

Total Divas” was a surprise hit when it premiered on E! last season. The show, which features a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to be a WWE Diva, begins its third season on Sunday, Sept. 7.

Brie and Nikki Bella
Brie, most people don’t have their engagement shown on TV like you did, when the show televised Daniel Bryan proposing to you. Did that make it more special?
Nikki: And I got to see it too, which was cool. Usually you don’t get to see anyone’s engagement. I was like, “Bryan, you did good. I’m very proud.” Continue reading LA Times Interview

‘I will make sure she pays’: Brie Bella speaks to WWE.com about her confrontation with Stephanie McMahon on Raw
Payback is a you-know-what, which is coincidentally what Brie Bella called Stephanie McMahon on Raw, eating a slap to the face as a result. The former Divas Champion got the last laugh, though, when she had one of WWE’s principal owners arrested and charged with aggravated battery. WWE.com caught up with Brie in our second interview with The Bella Twins concerning the incident, and learned that as good as she got Stephanie on Monday, Brie may only just be getting started.
WWE.COM: What compelled you to even be there on Raw Monday?
BRIE BELLA: I’d been watching for a couple months now, every Monday night, and seeing my sister get tortured by Stephanie McMahon. I’d been seeing a lot of the Divas on the roster beat up on her,seeing them come together and taking her out, one by one. I just felt like, “You know what? I need to come. I need to support Nikki. I need to let everyone know that she isn’t on her own, that she does have me.” I felt that if I was sitting front row, I’d give Nikki a little hope that she could do this, and that she isn’t defeated. So it was pretty much just me supporting my sister. Continue reading WWE.com Interview With Brie Bella
‘I’m prepared for the worst’: Nikki Bella talks to WWE.com about the incident between Stephanie McMahon and Brie Bella
What was supposed to be a heartwarming reunion for The Bella Twins turned physical in a flash on Monday Night Raw when Stephanie McMahon entered into a verbal altercation with Brie Bella, who was seated in the crowd as a paying audience member during Nikki Bella’s match. The confrontation quickly escalated and Stephanie slapped Brie as a result, moments before feeding Nikki to a four-Diva coalition assembled with the sole purpose of taking the “Total Divas” star out.
Later in the night, Brie got her payback by having Stephanie arrested and charged with aggravated battery, but while the former Divas Champion remains relatively bulletproof as a former employee, the future remains uncertain for Nikki Bella. In the first of two interviews with The Bella Twins, WWE.com spoke with Nikki to gauge her feelings on the incident and find out what she thinks The Authority has in store for her next week as punishment.
WWE.COM: Take us back to Monday. How did you feel having Brie at ringside for Raw?
NIKKI: I was so excited to see my sister there. Everything I’ve been going through and what The Authority has put me through, it just felt really good to know my sister was close and supporting me. It made it easier to step into battle even though it was four-versus-one. I had some confidence knowing my sister was so close. I didn’t imagine everything was going to turn out like it did.

Nikki was interviewed by Reveal UK to promote Total Divas, which premieres in the UK on E! on July 20th.
Total Divas’ Nikki Bella: “Wrestling…you get to kick butt and look hot doing it!”
What is it you like about WWE?
“When I’m in the ring – that’s my passion. There’s nothing better in the world than wrestling and when I’m in that ring the energy I have, the connection with the fans when they’re cheering you and booing you and chanting your name, there’s nothing like that in the world… If I wasn’t with WWE I wouldn’t have seen all of the places I’ve seen. To go there and truly have a fan base, I feel like I’m living like Madonna! They make us feel so cool!”
