One Bella Down
In the second part of Total Divas’ SummerSlam extravaganza, Brie Bella finds herself left off of the week’s itinerary and has an idea as to why. Meanwhile, as her big date approaches, Nia Jax’s confidence begins to falter and it falls to The Bella Twins to raise her spirits. An all-new Total Divas airs tonight at 9/8 C on E!.
The Bellas headed to New York City for the SummerSlam festivities. They reflected on their lives and how much they changed in a year. Brie wondered why Nikki was doing signings and she wasn’t. She was worried that WWE thinks she doesn’t want to do things like that anymore. Maryse is throwing a Sex & The City party and Nikki buys cute purses for everyone. Most of the girls (and Rusev) went to a drag bar.
On January 3rd at 2PM EST, E! will be airing a mini Total Divas marathon. They will play episodes 1 to 7 of this season, leading up to the premiere of episode 8 “Single In The City” at 9PM.
Brie Bella is still eyeing a potential comeback in the ring, but her confidence is at a bit of a low point lately. She’s not entirely comfortable in her post-baby body, and an impromptu game of soccer leads her to realize that she has a long way to go before she has the cardio necessary to step into the ring. Daniel Bryan remains supportive, but Brie isn’t sure that her dreams will line up with reality — until Nia Jax gives her a much-needed pep talk to remind her of what she’s capable of and that being different isn’t exactly a bad thing. At the end of the episode, Birdiebee has its first display at a convention, and Brie realizes that her dreams are already coming true, and there’s no reason she can’t keep it going and have everything she wants.
All-new episodes of Total Divas return to E! on Wednesday, Jan. 3!
The Total Divas have determined that Nikki Bella’s engagement party will be a ladies-only blowout in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. And while Nia Jax and Maryse are absent for this particular bash, this is the first time Brie will be out and about with her friends since giving birth. Apart from being self-conscious about her new one-piece bathing suit, however, the former Divas Champion quickly returns to Brie Mode, giving herself some much-needed fun after a busy, stressful couple of months.
When we begin this week’s Total Divas, Brie Bella and Nikki Bella are supervising a photoshoot for their Birdiebee line, bringing their business venture one step closer to a reality. That’s certainly a rewarding experience, though they admit the corporate world doesn’t give them the athletic or creative rush that WWE did. So, to make up for it, the twins try their hand at a couple hobbies from skateboarding to watching a horserace. It’s the sound and sights of the latter that convince Brie she’s ready to get back in the ring, leading to an impromptu training session with Nikki, Daniel Bryan and Nia Jax. By the end of it, she’s 1,000 percent in on a potential comeback, with Bryan on board as long as his wife puts in the requisite work.
