Incomparable By Brie & Nikki Bella

My introduction to the Bella Twins began whilst  exploring the reality TV show, Total Diva, a show exploring the behind the scenes lives of wrestlers in the women's division, including Trinity Fatu, Ariane Andrew, Natalya Neidhart and more. In actuality wrestling has never been a sport I have ever taken much  interest in but I love reality TV so I gave it a trial and instantly became hooked! The show was a hit with viewers and not long after, WWE champions Nikki and Brie Bella, were offered an opportunity to air their spin off, Total Bellas, which has become an international success. 

Four years after premiering their TV series, the Bella sisters have penned their own memoir detailing the their story on their journey to stardom and entrepreneurship. Incomparable is a fitting name to explain their life story because being twin sisters I can imagine how frequently they would be compared to one another and the frustration that may come with that. Although they shared a womb and journeyed through life together,  it is also important to remember they are seperate individuals. Brie takes the role of the deep, down to earth hippie who loves earth and nature whereas, Bella is spontaneous, lives for glitz and glamour and appreciates the finer things in life. 

Throughout the book, Nikki and Brie are honest and Frank about the rough childhood they faced having experienced childhood trauma through witnessing their dad struggle with addiction and Nikki bravely opening up about the sexual abuse she had encountered as a teenager. The twins discuss the impact of how their trials and tribulations have shaped them and make it crystal clear they do not want to be seen as victims but rather survivors. Every obstacle and barrier has strengthened them and given them resilience to push forward in life.
