Yet others wrote doubtful messages in the comments, speculating about the possibility of the entire thing being a publicity stunt.

One follower wrote, “I’ve read that this could be a possible stunt for the new upcoming season of total bellas, to get more ratings for the show because last season the ratings was bad… I mean I would lose respect for them if this is just a publicly stunt. I’m already done watching total bellas anymore.”

John also recently admitted to E! that he missed Nikki. He said, “Nicole knows I love her and I miss her, but that is what it is. And I’m still here, still going — and I choose to go. When you love somebody, it stings. That’s why musicians write about it. That’s why poets write about it.”
