It’s SummerSlam Week, and the Bella Family has relocated to New York City. Shenanigans, predictably, ensue, the biggest of which is a blind date that’s so out of left-field Nikki doesn’t even know it’s happening. Mama Bella is the instigator, having invited a male model to family dinner without informing her daughter of the setup. Nikki sniffs it out instantly, of course, and she isn’t thrilled, but everyone accepts that Kathy’s heart is in the right place and politely asks her to never do it again. (The guy, for what it’s worth, is a great sport about it.)
Elsewhere, we meet the “third Bella,” John Laurinaitis’ daughter Maya, who is facing a crossroads in her career path. Her father, unsurprisingly, is advocating for a life in the family business, but Maya has the itch to be a model like her stepsisters. The Bellas arrange a Birdiebee shoot with Maya to see if she’s got the stuff — she does — but, again, fail to inform Big Johnny himself until the same family dinner. He’s a little less easygoing about this revelation than Nikki is, though he understands his daughter has plenty of time to change career paths if she wants and just asks to be kept in the loop.
Finally, we have Brie Bella, who is still struggling with confidence issues related to her post-baby body. Right around the time she gets past them, she gets the call from WWE confirming that she’ll be competing on both Raw and SmackDown LIVE for the immediate future. Of course, with a husband who’s also on the road and a baby at home, that presents the biggest problem of all.
Total Bellas airs Sundays at 9/8 C on E!.
Welcome to Total Bellas Season 4, complete with a world of opportunities available for the newly-single Nikki Bella, who faces a unique challenge this year in that isn’t really sure what she wants to do but feels like she has to do something after the trying events of last season. After one final bit of housekeeping — an emotional trip to Tampa where she moves out the last of her belongings — she comes up with the first step of a plan: Move to Los Angeles.
Brie Bella, who thinks Nikki’s just trying to relive her 20s and run away from the hard work of piecing her life back together, isn’t thrilled. Nor is Daniel Bryan, who’s feeling a little underappreciated after several instances of packing his family up and moving to Nikki’s side each time she’s in a rut. Plus, he’s got full-blown baby fever, much to the chagrin of Brie, who’s finally gotten herself back into the shape she wants to be in and isn’t quite ready to be pregnant again.
