OK! exclusively got to chat with Nikki Bella from Total Divas about how she felt losing her title, what she wants to accomplish in her career long term, and if we’ll ever see a wedding between her and John Cena! Check out the interview below!
OK!Magazine.com: How do you feel losing your title to Charlotte?
Nikki Bella: It’s great but there’s a part of me that’s sad. You’ve been the Diva’s Champion for 301 days and you definitely grow an attachment and feel like you lose a title, like part of your name. It’s almost like having a divorce.
OK!: In one clip you were having difficulties with the demanding schedule? How did you balance work and life?
NB: A therapist! I have to say I have an amazing therapist. She’s my best friend for life. She’s taught me how to balance everything out. I’m a pleaser but it’s not a good thing because you forget about pleasing yourself at the end of the day. I was spreading myself out too thin. There was no me time. It would be hard to breathe. I knew I had to make a change because I was at the point of quitting everything
OK!: What’s the next thing you want to accomplish in your career?
NB: I want to build a legacy at the WWE but I definitely want to continue to grow the Bella Empire. I want it to go beyond the ring. I would love to be a motivational speaker.
OK!: How is your relationship with John Cena today? Any closer to marriage?
NB: It’s so amazing. You don’t see as much of John and I on the show just because you get to a point when you’re filming and you get irritated or get into unnecessary arguments and we were like ‘What’s more important us or the show?’ And it’s us. We both know we want to be together forever. In the upcoming season he’s more open to marriage.
OK!: What is a new project your working on?
NB: Brie and I are still working on our fitness studio. Hopefully something will come out in 2016. We are also working on a lingerie line that I can’t wait to show! It’s not for a while, still in the works but so excited about it. I think a lot of people will like.
Make sure to catch the season finale of Total Divas on Tuesday, September 29, at 9pm on E!
