Nikki Bella and her fiance John Cena went through a very public and surprising breakup last year after six years together. The whole ordeal played out on "Total Bellas," which documents the life of Nikki and her twice sister Brie.

Now, Nikki is opening up to Health magazine about regrets she has from the public split.

"The one thing I really regret about showcasing the breakup is that no one got to hear [John's] voice, and it just seemed so one-sided," she told the outlet.

"I felt like that wasn't fair to him because he was on this journey with us from the beginning. What people don't realize is that John never took one paycheck from Total Bellas. It was beautiful—he was fully there to support me."

"My family loves John. I love John—he’s such an amazing person. The timing was off," she continued. "But I love my family for that—they have never once been pro Nicole in this, and that is what has helped me grow. I didn’t have my family coddling me."

Brie chimed in, saying that she thought calling off the wedding was a mistake at the time, but has since come around.

"I [thought it was a mistake] for a long time because they were just such a lovely couple, and I thought they were such a perfect match. Because I’m married, I felt like there are ups and downs in relationships, and you work on things—you don’t just give up," Brie said. "But then, after the breakup, I started seeing that they both wanted different things. So then I approved of the breakup."

Nikki is now in a serious relationship with her former "Dancing With the Stars" partner Artem Chigvintsev. She talked about that, as well.

"In past relationships, I feel like I was always trying to be perfect and was walking on eggshells because I didn’t want to upset that other person or make them leave me," she explained.

"Artem is the first person I’ve been with where I feel like I can be Nicole and never fear he’s going to leave me for it. We all have a little crazy in us, and he loves my crazy. He’s also the first person I’ve communicated everything I feel with. Brie was saying I’m almost too honest with him. But I’d rather him know everything."
