The three-day event began yesterday and to promote 'CURVYCon', Nikki Bella spoke with 'Yahoo Lifestyle' and during the discussion Nikki revealed that when she and Brie first made their television debuts, she was immediately referred to as the "fat twin" of the pair which has led to her representing all women at an event such as 'CURVYcon'.

“I love representing women, and I love to, as much as I can, inspire and be a role model for women and young girls,” Bella says. “I don’t know what it feels like to be Nia Jax, but being an identical twin, I’ve been compared my whole life. I’ve been the bigger twin. When I got on TV 10 years ago, immediately everyone called me ‘the fat twin'. I had always looked at myself as someone who was just healthy and I loved who I was, but there was a period of time when it really got to me.” Bella adds, “I remember that feeling and being with Nia and having her tell me her stories and what she goes through, and stuff I’ve seen just filming our show, it makes me want to represent these women and stand with them.”


Nikki and Brie had their first match on RAW in three years this past Monday. To hear about how they fared, check out the latest episode of the Fightful post-RAW podcast.
