Could Nikki Bella be trading in a title belt for a mirror ball trophy?
In a sneak peek for tonight’s episode of Total Divas, the longest-reigning WWE Divas champ revealed that she got an offer to join the cast of the popular ABC competition series Dancing With the Stars — and she definitely gave it some serious thought! She got the exciting email while on the set of a photo shoot for the cover of Muscle and Fitness with her twin sister, Brie Bella.
“Oh my gosh, look at the email I just got from Dancing With the Stars,” she told Brie. “Oh my god, that would be so awesome — I’ve always wanted to do ballroom dancing.”
But she immediately burst her own bubble when she realized that the show airs live on Monday nights. Since she’s been out of the WWE ring healing from her nearly career-ending neck injury, the pro wrestler has yet to be drafted to either of the company’s brands — Monday Night Raw or Smackdown Live, both of which air live on Monday and Tuesday nights. If she was drafted to Raw, then it would conflict with her Dancing With The Stars schedule.
Nikki noted that if she was drafted to Smackdown Live, two back-to-back live shows would help make her comeback even better — so she didn’t rule anything out just yet.
“I’m like really excited! I’m always thinking of how I can make my career bigger and Dancing With the Stars — it’s huge! It’s so mainstream,” the 33-year-old gushed in her confessional.
And she wasn’t the only Bella Twin who got good news that day! Brie posted a message on Instagram and revealed that she was in her very early stages of pregnancy during that same photo shoot.
“I remember waking up that morning and feeling different but not thinking I could be pregnant and it took weeks until I realized I might be! Wow!! I love looking back!!” she wrote.
