Bella and Cena, 41, exclusively revealed to Us Weekly on April 15 that they had called off their engagement after six years together.
"John is such an incredible man".
In a teaser clip for an upcoming season three premiere of her reality show Total Bellas, Nikki gets real with the camera about some of the unseen challenges that presented themselves in her relationship with Cena.
"I have hope I'm at a point in my life where I feel like I kind of lost me, and I want to find me and work on me", she added.
"Sometimes you tip-toe around John to not make him angry and I think that's bulls-t", Brie said. Bella, 34, said ultimately she just wants both herself and the WWE star "to live the rest of our lives happy". "Hopefully that's together, maybe it's not". If you look at the person I was in 2012 and look at me sitting right here, it's been a learning experience that I'm grateful for, and like I said yesterday, if I never have another second, the time I had was so special.
"It's been very hard". "And anyone who has experienced that knows that it comes with a series of bad feelings".
John claimed that he just loves Nicole and wants no one else in his life. That's insane. I have hope ...
Recently, however, Cena seemed to have a change of heart.
Simmons jokingly suggested Cena's intervention was needed, saying, "Hey John - this wedding, we're going to have the Royals, we're going to have Diana's family, the Spencers, now we're going to have the Markle family".
As for the future, Nikki commented, "I have hope".
"I'm willing to go back on all of these things I said, and a lot of things I was holding on to just out of stubbornness - "I won't have kids" - and it took a really strong look in the mirror for me to be like, 'Why?' This person is my number one, and it's something that's very valuable to her, and of course we can do this. all of that switched because I love her", Cena admitted.
"Nikki Bella is on [the Today Show] Thursday and this whole thing about Cena being legit and being a jerk, I mean come on Nikki Bella is on Thursday". I just want us to work.
