Nikki Bella (who has grown from just being a cast member to an Executive Producer of Divas) doesn’t feel the reality franchise gets the credit it deserves for helping to cultivate and grow the female WWE fan demographic.
“Absolutely not, I don’t think it does at all,” Bella told PWInsider.com this past Saturday at the One World Observatory following an appearance where she and other WWE performers surprised several Make-A-Wish Foundation families.
“What is unfortunate is that when Total Divas was succeeding and we became a hit reality show, they let people with a mic in the ring just bash it and us Total Divas never got a response. So, with the fans, it began to give Total Divas a bad name, ‘Oh, they are just reality stars.’ Actually, while the girls who aren’t on the reality show are just wrestling, us girls on the reality show are wrestling, are filming, are never sleeping, going to appearances, making sure that the world knows how amazing women wrestlers are. So, I don’t feel Total Divas gets enough credit because the words ‘reality show’ has ruined it for people. I think certain people also, characters for the company, have ruined it as well out of pure jealousy. I’ll admit that.”
We still don’t know the wedding date, but we’re happy to report that bride-to-be Nikki Bella is sharing even more details about her upcoming wedding to fellow professional wrestler John Cena! The Total Bellas star just shared the big news that she found a designer wedding dress she loves, and now she’s confirming exactly who will serve as her flower girls. Yes, she’s having more than one!
“John has three nieces, so we’re going to have them as flower girls and then my brother’s little girl Vivienne and then Birdie,” Nikki said, according to E! News, adding sister Brie Bella’s adorable daughter Birdie Joe Danielson to the list. “We’ll probably get Birdie a really special dress.”
“Yes, we have to!” sister Brie added. “We have to make sure she says yes to the dress.” The two sisters went on to discuss the “sassy” nature of one of Nikki’s other future flower girls, joking about the little one’s tendency to say no to everything. Here’s hoping the bride-to-be can find flower girl gowns that appeal to all her littlest wedding attendants!
As for Nikki’s own wedding dress, we know the look will be designed by Marchesa and that the reality television star first saw it at the design house’s spring fashion show. She fell in love with the look because of its Princess Grace vibes, and it sounds like the gown looks equally amazing on and off the runway! Now, any guesses which wedding details Nikki will divulge next? Here’s hoping for a sneak peek at those flower girl dresses!
