On the Bella Twins YouTube channel, Nikki Bella updated her fans on her current relationship status with John Cena:
"It has been a super emotional roller coaster ride and I think it's hard for people to understand because we film and then things get shown a few months after and people are like, 'Are they together? Are they not?' Because I am a reality star, and I do have a reality show, I feel like I have to say what's the update on John and I, but right now we're just friends.
We are both working on each other and trying to work on us. We talk everyday, he is not only my best friend, but he truly is one of the most amazing people I've ever met. He has patience with me and has really taught me a lot over over the past few months. I think one of those things is an inner-strength that I thought I had, but didn't realize how strong I had it. I don't know, I do have hope for us. ... Hopefully, one day we'll get back together, and if we don't, we just both want each other to be very, very happy."
