For over a decade, the Bella Twins have been an entertaining duo on television. The 37-year-old twin sisters rose to fame as wrestlers in the WWE. During their 12-year run with the company, they won championships and helped pave the way for other women wrestlers.
Aside from wrestling, the Bellas other claim to fame is their reality television careers. Brie and Nikki were original cast members of the E! Network’s “Total Divas,” which premiered in July 2013. The series followed the twins and their female co-workers as they dealt with trouble at work and in their home life. The show drew a lot of attention to the women of the WWE, and it’d also help make stars out of Brie and Nikki.
Their Spinoff Series
As Brie and Nikki’s popularity grew, “Total Divas” producers decided to give the sisters their own spinoff. In October 2016, “Total Bellas” premiered and introduced viewers to other members of the Bella family. Joining Nikki and Brie were their mother Kathy Colace Laurinaitis and her husband John, the Bellas’ younger brother JJ and his wife Lauren.
The series captured plenty of dramatic scenes as the family argued and dealt with many challenges. There were plenty of memorable moments throughout the past six seasons. Viewers watched Brie give birth to her daughter Birdie along with Nikki’s painful split from John Cena, then finding love with Artem Chigvintsev.
“Total Bellas” Most Recent Season
The most recent season of “Total Bellas” was one of the biggest, with it showing Brie and Nikki being pregnant together. While it was a joyous time for the sisters, there were also some dramatic moments. Their mother Kathy underwent brain surgery, and Nikki was worried after a doctor’s checkup revealed her unborn baby may have a heart issue.
The big moment of the sixth season came when it showed the birth of Brie and Nikki’s sons. Being the competitive twin, Nikki gave birth first, with her son Matteo arriving on July 31st. A day later on August 1st, Brie’s son Buddy made his arrival. Cameras rolled during the happy moments where Brie and Nikki’s boys met for the first time.
‘Total Bellas’ No More?
Season six of “Total Bellas” ended with the sisters moving their families to Napa Valley. Nikki and Artem also set a wedding date with the couple set to marry during Thanksgiving weekend 2021. For fans hoping to see these moments featured on “Total Bellas,” that may not happen.
So far there’s been no word on whether the show’s been renewed or cancelled. However, if the twins have their say, the show may not be coming back. In a recent interview, Nikki and Brie implied that they’re ready to call it quits on their reality series.
Putting Their Children First
According to Brie and Nikki, one of the reasons they feel it’s time to end “Total Bellas” is because of their children. Birdie, Buddy, and Matteo have been featured on the show since their births. The Bellas have began to realize that having their kids on television may not be what’s best for them.
“We love filming reality. We don’t mind it, but you start seeing your kids and that’s what you have to start to think about,” Brie explained. Brie went on to reveal that her husband Daniel Bryan and daughter Birdie aren’t fans of the camera. Meanwhile, Nikki also agrees with Brie on the matter of their children in front of the camera. The new mom explained that she wants her son Matteo to have “a normal upbringing.”
Life After ‘Total Bellas’
Although, Brie and Nikki are ready to walk away, there’s been no official confirmation that “Total Bellas” has been cancelled. Whether it comes back for one more season remains to be seen. But fans will have reruns of the previous seasons to keep them entertained.
Plus, this isn’t the end of the Bella Twins. Brie and Nikki will have plenty of outside projects, including their “The Bellas” podcast, Birdiebee fashion line, Nicole + Brizee hair care line, and their Belle Radici wine. Aside from their business ventures, the twins are also prepping for a WWE return, which is rumored to take place this fall.
