A raw, honest, and revealing co-memoir by Brie and Nikki Bella: twin sisters, WWE Hall of Fame inductees, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and stars of the hit E! shows Total Bellas and Total Divas.

As twins, the Bellas have always competed. Legend has it that Nikki drop-kicked Brie in the womb so that she could make her grand entrance first. But the rest of the world often treated them as identical and even interchangeable, so they decided to do something about it.

In WWE, the Bellas accomplished so much together: bringing in young girls and women while building the Bella Army, helping the transition of female performers from Divas to Superstars, starring in Total Divas and Total Bellas, and founding companies like Birdiebee, Nicole + Brizee Beauty, and Bonita Bonita Wine.

Though their early journey began with loss, abuse, and plenty of rough times, these challenges “shined the diamond.” They resolved to be survivors and the heroes of their own stories, and to take control and responsibility for their lives. Eventually, they would come to show girls everywhere that they can do anything.

The Bellas may be identical twins—but as individuals, they have proven themselves Incomparable.

I’ve mentioned previously that I’m a fan of WWE American-style show wrestling. Mainly for the hot half-naked dudes, to be honest. They’re my type of specimen. However, I do also adore the ladies because they are so badass and fearless. I wouldn’t say I LOVE the Bella twins, but I do really admire them and honestly they’re some of my favourites. I also enjoy watching their TV shows because honestly they’re both such wrecks and it’s amusing and somewhat annoying watching the blatant favouritism of Nikki.

However, I do also love a good celebrity memoir. I don’t know, sometimes I think they’re a bit trashy but I love seeing life from their point of view and behind the scenes stuff. So I’m really excited to read this autobiography! Unfortunately I don’t often review them since I feel like sometimes it’s critiquing their life, and I like to keep this blog mostly focused on YA fiction. So you probably won’t get a review for this one!
