Nikki Bella speaks on Cena's new love interest.
A few weeks back, WWE superstar and actor John Cena was spotted with a mystery brunette, later identified as Shay Shariatzadeh, a product manager from Vancouver, Canada.
The photo surfaced not long after Cena's ex-fiance, Nikki Bella, confirmed her relationship with her former “Dancing With the Stars” partner Artem Chigvintsev. On Wednesday’s episode of The Bellas Podcast, Nikki reacted to Cena getting back on the dating scene, and explained what was going through her head when she first saw the photos of his new love interest.
Nikki had previously said that seeing Cena with a new girlfriend would "kill her," but she was singing a different tune on her podcast.
After seeing the recent photos, Bella explained (H/T Page Six):
“I opened it up and when I saw the photo, it was weird,” Bella, 35, said, before sharing that her emotions quickly took a turn. “Sometimes when you get a text, or you see a photo, or you see your significant other flirt with someone, you know how you get those knots in your stomach and it hurts? You either want to poop your pants immediately … or you just have the craziest tummy ache? Neither of that happened to me.”
“When I saw the big smile on his face with the paparazzi photos, I think that’s why I didn’t want to s–t my pants,” she continued. “I felt happy for him. I am very happy for him. As long as John is happy, I’m happy.”
“I was actually just really curious to see who he was going on dinner dates with,” before teasing, “Which, you know, they’ll never be like ours. Just kidding. Sorry, that’s the girl in me! Let me get back to being a woman.”
That said, Bella says she'll still deliver a "rack-attack in a heartbeat" if the woman breaks Cena's heart. “Still protective of that man,” Bella added.
