During an interview with Scott Fishman from TVInsider, Brie Bella discussed her marriage to Daniel Bryan. Specifically, she talked about how they are more open on their marriage issues on the new season of Total Bellas.
Brie said that because of the quarantine, she sits with Nikki to watch the show along with Bryan and Nikki’s fiancee Artem Chigvintsev.
Brie said, “So it’s reliving a lot of those moments again together and having these feelings come back. You’re never prepared for reality television or what is going to happen.”
Brie added, “[Bryan and I] never had the intention of showcasing our marriage the way we did this season. What happens when the cameras are on, [producers] start to realize what is really going on. It’s like, “Wow, are you and Bryan distant? Are you and Bryan happy?”
She continued, “You start to ask these same questions and realize I’m not happy. We are distant and evolving differently. But Bryan and I put on a brave face and show this part of our marriage because we do believe a lot of married people who have kids go through this.”
The video below from Total Bellas shows some of their marital issues that were filmed for the cameras. Brie said, “I feel like Bryan and I are drifting further apart and we both look at relaxing differently and I can tell it bothers him.”
Several weeks ago on her podcast, Brie expressed that she was not comfortable with Bryan working on WWE shows during the pandemic. Bryan has continued working on WWE shows including on this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown where he wrestled recently-released WWE star Drew Gulak.
