On the heels of the most-watched season of Total Bellas, E! Entertainment has greenlit a fourth season of the hit series following the lives of Nikki and Brie Bella. Season 3 of Total Bellas saw Nikki make one of the most challenging decisions of her life in opting to call off her high-profile wedding to John Cena, Brie balancing being a new mom and a successful businesswoman with her sister, and Daniel Bryan’s sensational return to the WWE ring. The third season also gave viewers a glimpse into Nikki and Brie’s continued growth as entrepreneurs as they expand their businesses and launch new brands, from apparel to wine with Birdiebee and Belle Radici.

“Nikki and Brie’s willingness to be open about their struggles and celebrate their triumphs with their fans is what makes Total Bellas such a hit with our audience,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, Executive Vice President, Development and Production, E! “The Bella Twins embody the strong, empowered women that we celebrate here at E!, and we are so excited to see what the future has in store for them next.”

“I’m so excited for another season of Total Bellas and hope our journey continues to inspire, motivate and connect with our Bella Army,” said Brie.

“I can’t wait for our fans to join me in the next step of my life. I promise that it will be a fun, real and heartfelt adventure,” added Nikki.

The Bella Twins will also continue to be featured on E’s hit series Total Divas, premiering its eighth season on Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. The new season will cover what comes next for Nikki and Brie, the return of Paige and the road to Nia Jax’s highly anticipated Raw Women’s Championship Match.

Nikki Bella has been breaking up with John Cena for the entire third season of E!’s Total Bellas. Even when they got back together, she was in the process of leaving him, transitioning to a life where she can follow whatever ambition or path she sets for herself. Their reconciliation was more a last grasp at a straw she had realized, on some level, she no longer wanted; her wedding prep was less a march toward the aisle than a hurtle toward a brick wall, and each sacrifice she was asked to make was another straw weighing down the metaphorical camel’s back. And on the Season 3 finale, she finally makes the decision she’s been lurching toward all year long: She ends their relationship.

But anybody looking for the tear-soaked drama of their first split will be disappointed. The final choice happens offscreen, and not only is the episode largely split into “before” and “after,” the first half finds its focus not on Nikki but on Daniel Bryan. The Beard’s grueling road back to the ring concludes at WrestleMania 34, where he has his first match back and gets choked up over a photo of his daughter, Birdie, watching him wrestle. He and Brie Bella can finally breathe a sigh of relief now that their trials have come to an end, and he is able to once again pursue his dreams and do what he loves.

For the most part, Nikki isn’t even onscreen during this bit, save for a giddy tour of WrestleMania Axxess and a brief visit to the wedding venue. It’s only when Brie and Bryan are out to dinner for their anniversary that the phone calls start, and we hear that the wedding might be off again. We don’t know what the inciting incident was, or even if there is one, but we don’t really have to: Nikki has been slowly arriving at this decision for a long time. She sacrificed her own desires to be with Cena and, by her own admission, never really told him how heavily the choice to do so weighed on her. They split and she tasted a life that was her own, only to sacrifice that to go back to him. She simply can’t give up anything else anymore, and Cena’s request that she give him a final decision within a few days is more pressure than she’s willing to allow.

It’s no accident that Cena has been shrinking from view for all 10 episodes of the season, and it’s no accident that we don’t see him here. He began the season as a constant, then started slowly appearing less and less as he and Nikki grew apart. In the penultimate episode, he was just a voice on the phone; in the finale, he only appears briefly in the beginning, and then he’s gone. He is out of sight and almost out of the picture, so literally distant from Nikki that everything he says reaches us thirdhand, and we don’t even see her break it off with him.

It feels right, somehow. A season that began about them ends with her, sharing a glass of wine on the beach with Brie, both having put an arduous journey behind them and ready to start fresh. And there’s no better way to do that, of course, than spend some time with your girls.

Go figure it’s not Nikki or Brie or Kathy or any Bella, but Daniel Bryan who storms out of his perch in the background to sum up the central conflict of this season of Total Bellas just one episode before the finale. The setting is right before Bryan announces he’s been cleared to return to WWE, and he’s discussing why it was so hard to stomach retirement. It wasn’t because there was anything in particular he hadn’t accomplished; it’s just because he wasn’t ready for it to happen. There’s a big difference, he says, between doing something because you’re forced to and doing something because you want to.

If that sounds like a familiar sentiment, it should. This season has been all about Nikki Bella ostensibly coming to terms with her wedding, which has felt increasingly like an obligation ever since she got back together with John Cena. She’s inching, bit by bit, toward acknowledging out loud that it might not be what she wants anymore (taking on the full responsibility of planning it on a shortened schedule — plus the hint of some lingering tension over the issue of having kids — hasn’t helped), but she feels just as boxed in to keep quiet as she does about going through with the wedding. She also feels a very real obligation to put on a brave face during her bachelorette trip in Paris; nobody likes a killjoy, especially when you flew halfway across the planet to celebrate with her.

Luckily, Brie Bella is there to keep her sister out of her own head, organizing the masquerade ball and a burlesque performance featuring a dancer who Nikki thinks looks like Bo Dallas (Ed. Note: He kind of does) and a mime show with Lauren designed to prove that hey, moms can be cool, too. Nikki’s dueling excitement and apprehension about the wedding peek through in equal measure, but Brie’s party planning is enough to get her to live in the moment. (Of course, nobody but nobody on this show lives in the moment quite like JJ, who teams with his mother and her friend to prank the girls by TP’ing the chateau. Enfant terrible).

A similar story has been playing out Stateside, where Bryan has been working diligently to untangle himself from a major life decision he wasn’t willing to make. And Bryan inevitably gets cleared after his marathon of testing, returning to SmackDown LIVE to give his now-famous “fight for your dreams” speech. He’s now free to do what he wants and no longer has to sacrifice his dreams at the whim of external forces.

To be fair, there is no question of whether Nikki Bella is medically unable to get married, but the idea of doing so is proving unhealthy for her nonetheless. If she’s realized one thing from being single, it’s that she values the ability to do what she wants as opposed to what she has to do. Of course, in order to get what she wants, there is one more choice she’ll be forced to make. One more week until we find out if she does.

The Season 3 finale of E!’s Total Bellas airs Sunday at 9/8 C.

In one sense, a bachelorette party is a last hurrah as the clock to marriage winds down: One final time to cut loose before midnight hits and wedded bliss pumps the breaks on your wilder impulses. The big question of E!’s new Total Bellas — the first of a two-parter — is why Nikki Bella isn’t interested in any of that.

The answer, obviously, is just out of everybody’s reach or isn’t quite ready to be spoken aloud just yet: Thanks to the increasing physical distance between them, Nikki isn’t sure she wants to marry John Cena anymore, and those feelings have intensified to the point where her bachelorette jaunt to Paris feels more like a regular girls’ trip than a bachelorette party. She’s determined to plow ahead and not succumb to those feelings, though, and she’s in pretty good company. Everybody in this episode has blinders on, refusing to acknowledge some kind of issue bubbling just below the surface, some of which carry deeper implications than others.

Kathy and JJ, for instance, are along for the bachelorette party and aren’t really sure how they got roped into it — neither of them seems to think it’s appropriate (to her credit, Nikki doesn’t either). So, they have a mother-son day in Paris, despite some nervousness from Kathy that’s very well-founded: The last time she was in Paris, the terror attack at the Bataclan nightclub happened, and she no longer feels safe there. Of course, sipping wine on a Ferris wheel is all well and good to calm the nerves, but JJ is perfectly aware his mother hasn’t properly dealt with her feelings from the last trip. But between a conversation with a local who promises Kathy that the city will always be safe and a visit to the Bataclan itself, they finally confront the issue and put some of the trauma behind them.

This is more than can be said for Nikki and Brie. Nikki is muscling through the weekend and getting glummer by the minute, and Brie Bella has no idea why. Her interpretation of her sister’s mood is just that she’s down in the dumps and getting boring before her time, so she spends the episode trying to goad Nikki into wacky bachelorette antics. None of them gain much traction, save for a handful of dares that just end up being more embarrassing to Nikki than anything. Nikki makes her feelings clear to the camera after a FaceTime with Cena that leaves her oddly deflated (it’s not a bad call, just another reminder that she doesn’t feel as close to him as she wants to), but she crucially hasn’t said anything to her sister, who’s hell-bent on getting Nikki to drop the “boo-boo face” without figuring out why it’s there.

Her solution, literally, is to cover it up. Knowing that Nikki is a big fan of classy ballroom-type parties, Brie and Lauren arrange for a masquerade ball at the chateau they’re renting, but something gets a little lost in translation, and they’re presented with a risqué variety of “Eyes Wide Shut”-style clothing options. Now they’ve got a ball to plan, hours to spare, and, though they don’t quite know it yet, a bride-to-be who’s having some serious second thoughts. The clock is ticking, in more ways than one.

Watch part two of Nikki’s Paris bachelorette party Sunday at 9/8 C on E!.

With John Cena busy at work, wedding planning begins to take a toll on Nikki Bella during the July 8 episode of ‘Total Bellas.’ Here’s our recap of the episode!
There are eight weeks to go until Nikki Bella and John Cena’s wedding on this week’s episode of Total Bellas, and Nikki is gearing up for her bachelorette party. Plus, there’s the issue of choosing bridesmaids — Nikki initially let TEN friends know they could be in the wedding, but as time goes on, she starts realizing that would be way too much to deal with. Meanwhile, John is super busy with work, which leaves Nikki handling most of the wedding planning on her own.

Of course, that involves buying a wedding dress. Clearly, Nikki is cutting it close, and when she last went to look for dresses, she was left overwhelmed and questioning if she even wanted to get married. She’s much more calm this time around, though, and she finds the dream dress she’s been waiting for. Making the decision is a huge relief, especially for Nikki’s sister, Brie Bella, who’d been growing concerned about whether or not Nikki was even ready for marriage.

Still, having to make so many decisions on her own is taking a bit of a toll on Nikki, but luckily, Brie steps in to lend a hand. The first order of business is bridesmaids — as time goes on, Nikki realizes she must cut down her list, and opts to go with no bridesmaids at all, aside from two maids of honor (Brie and her cousin Kristen). Unfortunately, that means telling her friends they can no longer be in the wedding.

Over dinner, Nikki breaks the news to two of the girls, and although they’re upset, they urge her to do what she wants when it comes to putting a wedding together. Obviously, there’s a bit of relief once the conversation is over, but it’s clear Nikki is still struggling as her big day approaches.

As wedding planning gets more and more stressful, Nikki Bella turns to therapy to sort out her drama with John Cena. Here’s our recap of the June 24 episode of ‘Total Bellas’!

Nikki Bella and John Cena are together again and back to planning their wedding on this week’s episode of Total Bellas after he agreed to have a baby with her. There’s a lot of work to still be done, though — Nikki doesn’t even have a dress yet, and the wedding is just nine weeks away. Plus, Nikki needs to decide who will walk her down the aisle. She and Brie Bella have a strained relationship with their father, so it’s something she’ll have to spend some time considering. The girls’ mother, Kathy, is admittedly hoping Nikki will ask her to do it after she raised the kids as a single mom, especially since Brie had their estranged father do it.

The whole situation gets Nikki a bit stressed out and feeling like she has no control over planning her own wedding. She has a heart to heart about with her stepdad about the situation, but unfortunately, things get a bit awkward when he misinterprets the conversation as her asking him to walk her down! Eek! All the drama puts a bit of a damper on Nikki’s wedding planning — she’s simply not having fun throughout the process.

Nikki finds herself under even more pressure when John joins the family for dinner for the first time since she got back together with him. When the subject of kids comes up, John is noticeably quiet, and Nikki decides to visit her therapist to talk out everything she’s going through. Nikki admits that she fears growing apart from John because his career is taking off and never wants to hold him back. She also doesn’t want to lose her identity and independence by being “John Cena’s wife,” rather than “Nikki Bella.” All the second guessing leaves Nikki wondering — once again — if marriage with John is something that she’s ready for.

Nikki decides to get the family together and finally let everyone know who she wants to walk her down the aisle. She opens up to Brie about how miserable wedding planning has made her, and Brie realizes that something is definitely off with her sister. Finally, Nikki comes clean to her family members, and reveals she wants to walk herself down the aisle — it will be a way for her to celebrate her independence and empowerment.

Also in this episode, Brie and her husband, Bryan Danielson, work on spending alone time together for the first time since having their daughter, Birdie. Their romantic date doesn’t go as planned, though, when fans notice them and interrupt their picnic. Of course, they take the time to meet and greet their loyal followers, but it definitely puts a damper on the afternoon.

After the failed date, they give it a second try with some couples’ goat yoga. Again, it doesn’t prove to be relaxing or romantic like they wanted. Third time proves to be the charm, though — Brie and Bryan go back to one of their favorite places from before Birdie’s birth, the botanical garden, and it’s just what they needed.

John Cena and Nikki Bella get back together on the June 17 episode of ‘Total Bellas’ after he agrees to have surgery — so he’s no longer sterile — JUST to give her kids! Here’s our recap!

Nikki Bella is still dealing with how to publicly handle the demise of her relationship with John Cena on the June 17 episode of Total Bellas. She’s forced to put on a brave face and pretend everything is fine, and then…the news goes public. We see Nikki’s reaction to John discussing their relationship on the Today Show — yes, that famous interview where he professed his love. It leaves her confused because they haven’t talked since deciding to end things, so she doesn’t know why he’s saying all these things on TV and not to her.

Of course, the main issue in Nikki and John’s relationship is that she wants to have kids and he doesn’t, and she’ll finally get a chance to see what it’s like to really be a mom when she watches Brie Bella’s daughter alone for the first time. It’s admittedly an exhausting day, but assures Nikki that she definitely wants kids. She also uses the time to prove to Brie that it’s okay to hire help when she needs it — and calls in a nanny behind her sister’s back to help out while she gets a workout in. It actually ends up working, and Brie realizes that hiring a nanny would help her make the best use of her time.

Her relationship drama is put front and center once again, though, when John invites her to dinner and they finally have a chance to hash things out once and for all. Things are definitely a bit awkward at first. Nikki makes comes clean about everything that was bothering her, and John admits that he felt like she was giving him false hope throughout their relationship by not flat-out saying what she wanted when she wanted it.

His main issue is clear — just say what you want and how you feel — while Nikki is adamant that she just can’t see a life without having kids. However, John is worried that there may be a deeper issue, and he doesn’t want to have kids with Nikki just for her to still resent him for different reasons later.

She assures him that her only issue is possibly not being a mom, and John lets her know that he’s willing to make the sacrifice. Even though he physically cannot have kids, he’s willing to have surgery just to give her the child of her dreams. Wait…did John just confirm that he had a vasectomy in the past and now wants to get reversal surgery!??! The episode ends with them happily getting back together! However, as we now know, they’re still “just friends” in real life….so there’s still a lot of drama sure to come.
