Watching real life play out on TV is going to be tough for Nikki Bella.
The WWE superstar, who was famously engaged to her boyfriend of six years John Cena before they announced their breakup last month, will now have to watch personal events unfold on the third season of E!’s Total Bellas, premiering on Friday.
“We see the relationship unfolding—was there any hesitation documenting that?”
James News’ Erin Lim asked Bella on the red carpet at the 2018 NBCUniversal Upfront.
“Oh my gosh so much,” she answered. “I have to say it’s going to be definitely very hard to relive and it’s hard to document it, but at the same time, the Bella Army has been on this incredible journey with John and I and you know all the viewers at E! and I feel like I would be cheating them if I was to take away all that footage because it’s real life. We go through these ups and downs and we wedding plan—we could be on cloud nine, but then sometimes it makes you just face a lot of things that are going on in your life and you truly see that this season.”
Meanwhile, she’s already gotten to see some of what’s included on the upcoming season. “I’m like watching myself and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh,'” she told Lim.
“It’s been fun to cook with her. I’ve been enjoying morning coffee with her,” Brie said. “It’s nice having a roommate.”
With husband Daniel Bryan on tour currently, Nikki has stepped in to lend a helping hand.
Watch the season 3 premiere of Total Bellas this Sunday at 9 p.m., on E!
