Brie and Nikki Bella were the standout cast members on Total Divas. So, of course, they got their own spin-off show Total Bellas. With two shows, their fans got to watch their lives all year long, essentially.
Now, the Bellas are done with the show that brought them into the mainstream. Does this mean that they are done with reality TV for good? Or will they just focus on their spin-off show?
According to People, the sisters made this revelation on The Bellas Podcast. Brie began, “Nikki and I realized this year that it is time to say goodbye to Total Divas.”
Nikki added, “Brie and I have been with the franchise from the beginning and have literally put out hearts and souls and our lives on TV.”
Then Nikki explained why they had to make the decision. She shared, “We filmed all year long.” Then, she explained, “When other people would get breaks from the reality cameras, Brie and I would be filming the next season of Bellas and then we’d go straight into Divas.”

Brie had another factor to consider when she made this decision: her daughter Birdie. Brie admitted, “I don’t want Birdie to grow up in front of the cameras. She said, “I don’t want her to think that it’s a normal life.”
Even though they won’t be cast members, People reports that the twins will still appear on Total Divas here and there. They are not done with reality TV though.
Nikki confirmed, “We will now be focusing on just Total Bellas and the Bellas Podcast.”
