Nikki Bella gained success in the ring and transferred it over to reality television, becoming a household name. Artem Chigvintsev is a standout dancer on Dancing With The Stars. They met on the show when Nikki was Artem’s dance partner on the 25th season of the Dancing With The Stars.

Now, they are one of Hollywood’s hottests celebrity couples. Reel Talker’s Jim Alexander had a chance to catch up with Nikki again recently on the red carpet at the Variety Children’s Charity Poker Tournament event at Paramount Studios.

Nikki and Artem talk about their favorite activity together. She talks about what Artem does that makes her feel like a woman. She addresses her wrestling future and dream opponents. Also, Artem talks about his new best friends and his potential business venture with them. Check out the video below for all that and more.


Nikki is one of my favorite people to interview. She’s always energetic and open. Appreciate her honesty and willingness to share about her life. Artem seemed like a great guy. Personable and charming. They genuinely seemed happy together and in love.

I was surprised to hear about the new bromance between Artem, Daniel Bryan (WWE wrestler and Nikki’s brother-in-law) and actor Frankie Muniz. Curious to find out what their business venture might be.

Nikki talked about how she would love to wrestle WWE Raw Women’s Champion “The Man” Becky Lynch and “The Iconics” Tag Team. She’s also a big fan of Lacey Evans. Interesting to hear that had she been cleared she would have feuded with “The Iconics” after Wrestlemania 35, but it never happened due to her neck injury.

They mentioned a trip to Europe/Paris so does that mean a romantic getaway might end in a proposal?

Both Nikki and Artem were great to talk to and she seemed very happy. Last time I spoke to her she was single and wasn’t this overjoyed. It’s a newer romance, but I never sensed they were putting on a show or being fake. Good luck to them. I hope they work out as a couple.
