“Total Bellas” fans won’t have to worry about missing their favorite show because of quarantine restrictions.
Nikki and Brie Bella revealed that they are currently in production for Season 7 of the E! show, telling Maria Menounos on Wednesday’s episode of “Better Together with Maria Menounos,” that their crew is back in action.
“We all quarantined for 14 days,” Brie, 36, said. “Could have no contact with the outside world. It was, such strict rules and regulations, and then once we all did the 14 days quarantine, then we all had to take Coronavirus tests. And then once those tests came in, then, we all are together, but still quarantined, like all isolated.”
Brie added, “It’s actually nice because we get to get to talk to other humans … I sometimes feel bad for [the crew] because they have to be in protective gear all day, like masks, gloves, sanitizer. We don’t have to be in masks but we all check our temperatures.”
The Bella twins, who are both pregnant, also discussed their new memoir, “Incomparable,” and why they decide to write about Nikki being raped twice in high school.
“Even when I was talking to Nikki during the #MeToo movement, I was like, ‘Hashtag it! Tweet it! I’ve got your back. It’s time to tell your story,’” Brie said. “And she still didn’t have enough courage at the time … and it was sad for me to see someone who was innocent still not have the courage to speak about it. And that’s when we knew we had to talk about it in the book.”
Nikki explained, “The #MeToo movement is when Bri and I really talked about it again because I put it away for so long. And I remember telling Bri, ‘I’d do anything to have these women be around when it happened to me,’ because I probably would’ve ended up talking about it to my mom, someone. I would’ve gotten help, but instead, we didn’t have that.
“After we got this opportunity to write the memoir, it was just like, maybe I need to help be the role model for people, and not be a victim to it. I don’t want any high school girl to waste 20 years of her life holding on to what I held on to. I want her to break free.”
Toward the end of the interview, the twins reminisced about their friendship with WWE star Shad Gaspard, whose body was found washed up on Venice Beach earlier on Wednesday.
“Oh my gosh. Shad was one of the sweetest human being,” Brie recalled. “You know, at the time that we knew him, we were all on ‘Smackdown’ … Shad was one of those guys who was always so sweet and respectful to women, always made the Divas feel good. He always brought this light into a room.”
“You never saw him not smile,” Nikki added. “You never saw him angry. He literally always lit up the room. Shad was just one of those guys, till the very end.”
