In this sneak peek from Thursday’s new episode of “Total Bellas,” Brie confronts Bryan while they are at the park with their daughter Birdie. Brie urges the WWE star to take a page out of Nikki and Artem‘s book when it comes to public displays of affection.
“I think what we need to ask Artem and Nicole is how do we—how do I say this? How we can become a little more PDA again in public,” she told her hubby as they played at the playground. “All they do is kiss face in front of everyone and everything!”
“Is that what you want?” Bryan asked before Brie responded, “It’d be nice a little bit.”
After the non-PDA accusation, Bryan became defensive and laid into Brie about how she’s more focused on work than their relationship.
“It’s interesting because it’s like every time I come home, I kiss you a bunch but then every time I do, it’s almost like your looking at your phone or doing business,” he stated in a matter of fact sort of way.
After a hard denial by her, she said hinted that she liked it when he would pinch her butt and make other small gestures in public.
“You used to pinch my butt and do certain things,” Brie said. “You don’t do that anymore.”
Bryan was really shocked by her statement and replied, “In public? No. That’s not my deal.”
When he questioned if they should be more like her twin sister and Artem, Brie said she didn’t want to got that far because they can be a little extreme with the PDA.
“We don’t have PDA anymore. We either joke about it, that like ‘Ha Ha Ha, it’s not there anymore, it’s funny,’ or we just ignore it because we’re too tired,” she told the confessional camera. “We still need to understand how it is to be a married couple, parents and just career people.”
To make their careers, their personal lives, and their kid’s life work, something had to be put on the backburner and he is convinced that their connection was sacrificed.
“We’re both feeling this disconnection,” Bryan told the E! cameras while expressing that something has got to change.
