It looks like Brie and Nikki Bella are spreading themselves too thin on Total Bellas. The ladies went head-to-head during this week’s episode over too many commitments, being overworked and Brie feeling major mom guilt. Although her sister understands, she is also feeling a bit annoyed about having to take the brunt of the workload. Watch the clip above!
“What kills me and makes me very upset is that … Ugh,” the reality star, 35, trailed off before bursting into tears talking about how being so busy is affecting her daughter, Birdie Danielson. “It’s just hard because I care about Birdie and, like, even yesterday, I get up to use the restroom and she gets so upset. Like, she didn’t do that three weeks ago. And, so, I just hate it.”
“I could just tell how overwhelmed she is. Not only are you physically exhausted but I think mom guilt is a real thing. I think that’s really heavy on my sister right now,” her twin admitted. “But, at the end of the day, we did sign up for this and there’s a lot of frustration there for me because I have to pick up that slack.”
In the episode, Brie also tried canceling her trip to Philadelphia Comic-Con one day before the ladies were scheduled to make an appearance. “It’s really starting to stress me out and make me emotional because it’s all not working out,” the mom-of-one said in her confessional about their crazy schedule. “All I keep thinking about in my head is like, ‘When am I gonna see my daughter?’ I can’t just forget that.”
However, Nikki decided to voice her concerns and pointed out that they’re both exhausted. The newly single starlet said, “You have to help me out as a business partner … This is a business, this is a brand together.”
It looks like we’ll be seeing a lot more compromises! Total Bellas airs on E! Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
