Nikki Bella might have lost her 4.5 carat diamond engagement ring but she’s never seen without a heavy weight. In this case, it’s her twin sister, Brie Bella, who offered her comfort and support at her first public appearance at a food festival in Arizona on Saturday.
The sisters hosted a wine tasting party where guests tried out rose; the party was done in partnership with the sisters’ wine line, Bella Radici. The event comes a week after Nikki Bella and John Cena split up. The famous duo were apparently mismatched in their expectations of their future together. Allegedly, Nikki wanted children and John did not see eye to eye with her.
They were going to be wed on 5th May, 2018. Nikki’s sister Brie spoke out about how her sister was holding up after the unfortunate split.
“She’s good, they call her Fearless Nikki for a reason,” Brie told PEOPLE. “She always puts on that brave face,” she added. She also went to compare Nikki to Wonder Woman, saying Nikki is much stronger than the female superhero; she’s a fighter.
However, even fighters need strength when they’re down. Brie Bella also talked about how she wants to protect her twin from everything: the negative emotions, drama and publicity. She also said she doesn’t have much of a choice because Nikki wants to stay open and transparent for her fans. She wants to share her grief with them.
Nikki and John’s relationship will be catalogued widely on the next season E!’s ‘Total Bellas’. Brie said it was also hard on her. “It was the hardest season to film for me because all I want to do is protect her and keep everyone away, but this is what we do,” she said.
What’s more, Brie Bella also revealed that the new season will feature some very personal conversations that took place between John and Nikki.
“I don’t think we’d [Brie and husband, Brian] allow them to see those conversations’ but they do. I give them a lot of credit. You get to see where they’re at today and see that unravel,” she said.
Despite all the upcoming drama, it seems that Nikki is doing well so far. She has accepted this split as a philosophical and spiritual event that had to happen, but she’s glad that she has found herself through it all. She recently uploaded a photo on her Instagram. In the picture, she’s standing staring out at sea in a long billowing dress.
The caption reads, “For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), It’s always our self we find in the sea.”
The quote originally came from E.E. Cummings but Nikki has seemingly signaled the end of her six year relationship with John. Her fans are glad to know she’s able to find peace through this trying time.
Nikki is certainly strong; PEOPLE reported that she was the one who broke it off with her pro-wrestler fiancé. “John acted more and more like he was doing her a favor by somehow conceding to go ahead and marry her,” an insider reported.
Nikki is a force of nature on her own and doesn’t need anyone’s pity. And if her recent updates are to be believed, she’s taking care of herself and her life all on her own. You go, girl!
