When you’re a normal wrestler, you take your frustrations out on some dumbbells and add a few extra sets at the gym. When you’re John Cena, you just head over to the set of Today to toss back some chardonnay with Hoda Kolb and Kathie Lee Gifford. John went to those two wrecks to talk about his feelings and how he still wants to marry and have babies with ex-fiancée Nikki Bella. Much to the delight of John and E! network executives, she isn’t totally turned off by the idea.
John going on Kathie Lee and Hoda to talk kids had some people wagging their tongues because after he and Nikki called off the engagement, most people figured it was because he didn’t want to get married or have kids and that she was just gutted. But John said he still loves her very much, wants to get married and have ‘dem babies. Nikki apparently wants to now be the one who makes it seem as though she isn’t ready:
“I didn’t think cold feet and all of that type of stuff existed, but it exists. I have hope and I’m just at a point in my life where I feel like I kind’ve lost me, and I want to find me and work on me.”
Nikki was totally caught off guard (cough) during an interview with Extra on Monday after John had taken their relationship woes to morning television. A reporter read some of his mushiest lines to her after she said she hadn’t watched the interview – y’know, the one where he said he definitely wants to be the father of her children. It sounds like girl got cold feet:
“Wow, well, I’m speechless. Um, yeah, that’s crazy. Yeah.I didn’t think cold feet and all of that type of stuff existed, but it exists. I have hope and I’m just at a point in my life where I feel like I kind’ve lost me, and I want to find me and work on me.”
She even added that when she says her vows, she wants to “say them once and fully mean them.” Ouch! OK, now everyone emotionally punched each other with brass knuckles. While we aren’t quite sure what this means for them going forward, this is SO much better than hearing them both lie and say they’ll always have respect and love for each other going forward.
John was back on Today this morning where he reacted to Nikki’s response by saying that he just wanted to be honest, wanted her to hear him and that he can’t force her to come back. No, he can’t force her to come back, but the line “go back to John Cena” in the script for this written story arc can.
