Brie Bella spoke with TV Insider ahead of her episode of celebrity Family Feud that airs tonight at 8PM EST on ABC. A variety of topics were discussed from her podcast, to her career, to her new book. Check out some of the highlights below.

On a competition she wants to do that she never did yet:

Dancing with the Stars because I saw how my sister fell in love with dance, and she got into incredible shape. She told me, “It’s weird because dancing brings out this whole other side of you.” I would like to feel that. I have always been into athletics. I was a soccer player growing up and then in wrestling. I feel like I’ve never brought that part of myself out. That would be fun to bring out the more romantic and creative side.

Approaching fitness now that she does not wrestle anymore:

I think my biggest motivator is getting rid of the baby weight, always trying to get back to that pre-pregnancy body. I have a personal trainer who keeps me on my toes. I train with him three times a week. On my days I’m not working with a trainer, I love to do hot yoga. That’s my time to give my body the love and care it needs by stretching and making it more flexible.You always want to be in champion’s shape, but it’s nice not having the pressure that you have to be at a certain point in four weeks.

On the current filming of Total Bellas:

I think the biggest thing is that in every season, we’ve always been getting ready for this big comeback to wrestling and how wrestling is this big part of our lives. We both are retired now. And since Nikki officially announced that, it’s strange how all these other doors have opened where we are able to give all of our companies so much time. It’s like we are in our next chapter of our life.

If she expected ‘The Bellas Podcast’ to become as big as it has:

When they came to my sister and I about doing a podcast, we didn’t know it was for us. It’s such a different world. The one thing that we realized is that we’re open books. We will tell you about the good, the bad, the ugly. We know some people will hate what we say. Some people will love what we say. Some people will connect with us and won’t. We feel if we live in our truth that it will help other people too.

On writing a new book:

It’s actually something we’ve been working on for the past two years. It’s been a slow project. We’ve been working with this great ghostwriter. It’s funny because as reality stars you feel like you’ve given a lot of your life, but one thing Nicole and I want to talk about is our childhood. We’ve been through some really big stuff, which has defined us as strong women today.
