Nikki Bella is still Divas Champion, but she wouldn’t have held on to her title without some Twin Magic help from her sister Brie on more than one occasion.
Both Bellas are dominant in the WWE ring, and both are still leaders on Total Divas, which returns this month for its fourth season on E! in the UK and US.
Ahead of next week’s season premiere, we got in touch with Brie to talk about baby fever, the NXT girls and what she really thinks about Eva Marie.
At the end of season three it looked like you and Nikki might not re-sign with the company – what changed your minds?
“That’s what’s actually great about this season. You’ll get to see the reasons why Nikki and I do go back and forth on re-signing. I’m gonna be 32, I’m married to this amazing man and I have crazy baby fever.

Brie Bella def. Naomi
Nikki Bella wasn’t able to cheer her sister on from ringside since she was preparing for this Saturday’s historic live WWE Network special in Tokyo, but “Team Bella’s” newest member, Alicia Fox, picked up the slack in her absence. Just as Naomi – who’s ally, Tamina, also was in Japan – looked to be gaining momentum, the foxy Diva tripped her up, opening up the door for Brie Bella to hit a facebuster for the victory.

Brie deserved a spot on this list!
Nikki: “It was funny because it all started, why it started to fizzle was when I had my championship match against AJ at Survivor Series, we were supposed to have like 15 minutes. And CinderBella was ending the next day on Raw. So all of a sudden when AJ and I were in Gorilla they were like ‘how can you do this match in 30 seconds?’ And I was like ‘what?!? Thirty seconds? How do I win a championship in 30 seconds?’ And this one (Brie) is like ‘well, you know how you made Bryan lose with the kiss of death? Well, I could do that in 30 seconds.’ I’m like ‘well, she is my CinderBella.’ So we did that and then everything got forgotten the next day of where we were supposed to go, like, to go on forward. And I’m like ‘hey, is she ever going to get revenge on me? It just ended. We were even confused.”
Brie: “So I was like excited because the next day The Authority got put out of office. It was my last day being CinderBella, so I was like ‘yes! I can beat up Stephanie, I can beat her (Nikki) up, I can take that (the Divas championship). And they literally looked at me and go ‘oh yeah, we’re just ending it.’ And I was like ‘well, it’s the last day. What?’ They were just like ‘walk out with your sister.'”
Nikki: “Just act like you guys like each other again. I’m like ‘I told her that I wish she died in the womb, like, we can’t forget that. I can’t forget it.'”
Brie: “So now we call the new story JobberBella.”
Paige defeated Alicia Fox
Add a long-in-the-making tally in the loss column for “Team Bella,” who suffered their group’s first defeat when Paige toppled Alicia Fox. The match, two weeks in the making since Alicia took Paige out on SmackDown, was initially a one-sided affair In Paige’s favor; it wasn’t until Alicia retreated into the Bellas’ orbit following a Thesz Press that the tide started to turn.

Drama within the Divas division continued in full force on SmackDown, as Alicia Fox (flanked by Team Bella) battled Naomi (joined by Tamina) in an athletic one-on-one showdown. As the action moved to the outside, Tamina took full advantage, hitting a vicious superkick on an unsuspecting Brie. Nikki retaliated by spearing the powerhouse Diva into the barricade, before Naomi held the Divas Champion back and allowed the towering Tamina to connect on another brutal kick.
After returning to the ring, however, Naomi was met with an innovative face-plant from the newest Bella team member, who picked up the 1-2-3 to walk out the winner.
