It looks like things between Nikki Bella and her former Dancing With the Stars partner, Artem Chigvintsev, might just be the real deal! During a sneak peek for this week’s episode of Total Bellas, the *very single* professional wrestler, 35, sat down the dancer, 36, to catch up.
What started off as a seemingly friendly lunch date quickly turned into a major flirt fest! We mean, come on, who just casually talks about receiving nudes? We see you, Nikki … you’re not as slick as you think you are! About a millisecond after Artem admits that he’s not dating lately, Nikki claps back with: “You’re around a bunch of hot women.” Talk about trying to pry, huh? Of course, the blue-eyed hunk takes the bait and admits that people DM him “constantly.”
This is called flirting, people. Admittedly, Artem and Nikki aren’t exactly great at it … but it’s pretty undeniable, nonetheless. The brunette beauty then asks the reality star if he ever gets any “nudies.” We know, y’all, we can’t believe she called them that either. “I’m not gonna go there with you. I’m not even gonna tell you,” Artem replied with a big smile on his face.
Ummm, yeah, you could pretty much cut the sexual tension with a knife. In the last bit of the clip, Nikki mentions how impossible it is to interact with Artem on social media. “I can’t even like your photos on Instagram without getting a crazy amount of hate.” Well, girl, perhaps that’s because everyone wants to know if you two are really dating!
We understand she and ex-fiancé, John Cena, were together for six years, but if Nikki is moving on, Artem seems like the perfect guy to do it with.
