Nikki Bella reveals that she and Brie collided as a result of they “hid” their postpartum despair from Artem Chigvintsev
To get through her baby blues, the new mom shares that she hired a life coach and opened up to other mothers about how she was feeling. The hard part, however, was telling Artem what she was going through, which only happened after some nudge from Brie’s side.
“I admit, I was just really mean about certain things. And he was kind of like ‘Whoa’. And I’d say to Brie,” Brie, I’m so mean and it’s like I can’t even stop myself. ” it’s like really having to talk to Artem, “says Nikki of the situation. “It actually took Brie to call Artem and say, ‘This is what Nicole is going through and she’s hiding it and you need to be aware of that.’ So Brie called him. “
Of course, that annoyed Nikki. She remembers Katherine: “I got so mad. I said, ‘It’s not your place. This is my life! This is my relationship!'”
It was the right decision, however, because Nikki said it brought them to a point where they could “communicate”. She says to Katherine, “It was so great and he felt terrible.”
