Storms & Rainbows
Nikki & Brie catch up after a hectic weekend that saw them experience very different weekends. Nikki had a difficult time moving into her new house after some unexpected bumps after a great work trip to Nashville. Acknowledging that her people-pleasing ways might have created a frantic moving experience, Nikki has vowed to stick up for herself and her family without hesitation moving forward. But Nikki is flowing freely now after some clarity and cleansing. Now there’s nothing but sunny days ahead for Nikki and her family. Brie’s weekend trip to Anaheim to celebrate Birdie’s fifth birthday was a great trip, but it wasn’t flawless either. But motion sickness, cranky drivers, and broken rides wouldn’t stop Brie and Birdie from having a great weekend together. And Brie beamed when telling Nikki about an airport surprise. A little distance didn’t stop Bryan from pulling out all the stops for Brie on Mother’s Day, and Nikki’s Sunday didn’t go to plan after such a wild weekend with a big move after Matteo’s nap schedule was derailed and could only be fixed with donuts and cheesy puffs, which leads to a great discussion about when and where to give into toddlers. Nikki also shares some exclusive details about her new game show with Blake Shelton and Carson Daly on USA Network and The Bellas reflect on growing up on a farm and love of Country music, Shania Twain, and Gwen Stefani. This leads Nikki & Brie to highlight some stark differences between the two of them growing up. Closing things out on today’s episode and connecting with their country roots, Brie chooses a Dolly Parton quote for this week’s Inspiration & Affirmation.

Dancing Queens featuring Judge JJ
This week, Opening Up is the tale of two sisters. Nikki & Brie spent the weekend apart and had VERY different experiences. Nikki tells Brie about her experience at the Neon Carnival with Artem. In a night filled with energy drinks, sake, sushi, bumper cars, and red-carpet dances, they turned heads everywhere they went.

“I Don’t Mind Being A Trendsetter” with Lindsey Vonn
There’ no time to pop bottles, because BIG things are happening! First Nikki & Brie give exclusive details on the return to the WWE and then they sit down for an amazing conversation with Olympic Gold Medal skier Lindsey Vonn! It’s been a while since Nikki & Brie have been in the ring together and on today’s episode of The Bellas Podcast, they talk about their road back, why they’re excited to return to the WWE, who they’re most excited to see at the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble, and some possible strategies for the big event. Nikki elaborates on the process to get cleared for a comeback and Brie is excited to share her fitness journey to getting ring-ready for the big event. Also…there might be some bad blood from their last Royal Rumble. So it’s not just Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch that need to be on high alert in St. Louis because there could be a few grudges that get settled by the Bella Twins. Then Nikki & Brie welcome a woman that they have tremendous respect for, Lindsey Vonn. Brie starts out by telling Lindsey why her member, “Rise: My Story,” was so inspiring to her and Nikki follows that up by talking about shared influences, breaking barriers, being bold in a world that wanted to tame her, and her openness about mental health. They also talk to Lindsey about connecting with her feminine side while still crushing the competition, how close she came to quitting, the highs and lows of competing at such a high level, and finding purpose after retiring from competitive skiing. Then Nikki & Brie cross the finish line Lindsey when she shares her Inspiration & Affirmation, the words that mean the most to her going into 2022 and a new chapter of her life. Follow Lindsey on Instagram and order her new book, “Rise: My Story.” Follow Nikki & Brie on Instagram and join them every Friday for an Instagram Live when they answer your questions about that week’s episode of The Bellas Podcast!
