    The Bellas are ready to bounce back after a wild Thanksgiving, but first, Nikki has some mail to open up, and Brie is JEALOUS! We all know that jewelry is Nikki's love language, and this one has a way with words, but how long will she hang onto it before Brie takes it??? The Bellas don't Pop That Bottle today, but they do open up with a Paloma, which may seem like a margarita at first, but DO NOT get confused. Thanksgiving was a roaring success in the Bellas world, with a great time had by everyone. And what mattered most was making memories; Nikki did some research into the topic and came back with some fascinating findings in the field of memories, social media, swiping away, and getting away from technology. Something Brie is definitely on board with. Brie highlights her low-key birthday, which was in total contrast with the way that Nikki spent hers, and the sisters have a bone to pick with some rumblings coming out to their beloved Tahoe. A landmark could be wiped away soon, and the Bella Twins want to stand up for a special place where they've made some amazing memories with friends and family over the years. Then the Bellas close things out with a special Inspiration & Affirmation that celebrates the special holiday they had with family and their plans to decorate for Christmas and continue to make new memories.  Check out the all-new Bellas Podcast swag!

    Nikki and Brie had two very different experiences this weekend. Brie stayed in Tahoe with Bryan and the kids while Nikki went to Atlanta on a work trip that included riding in fast cars with Dale Earnhardt Jr. and hanging out with Bianca Belair. Nikki felt much better after a stomach bug wreaked havoc on the family, and the calm after that storm has allowed Nikki to live a caffeine-free lifestyle. She likes what she's experiencing so far. Nikki took the time to research for her upcoming bachelorette party on her flight which led to some incredible ideas 33,000 feet above sea level that all centered around popsicles. While she was at the NASCAR race to represent her new show, “Barmageddon,” on the USA Network, Nikki's day was full of adrenaline rushes and triple-digit-speeds. Nikki had a few observations about the drivers but a lot more to say about guys the pit crews. So if you're single and ready to mingle, consider swiping right on a tire changer or a jackman! Brie's weekend was a different kind of exciting because it was full of nudity. While boating with the family, Brie encountered multiple people without clothes and without worries. Now, after seeing all that skin glistening in the sun, her internal debate about getting a boob job has ignited once again. The Bellas also catch up on Bryan's guest appearance last week. And we get to hear how Nikki's answers to Bellas Choice compared to the responses from Brie, Bryan, and the audience! Dipping a toe into the pop culture pond, Nikki & Brie also played Nailed or Failed, covering such topics as sharing DM's from Doja Cat, Ryan Gosling's underwear, Florence Pugh's see-through dress, Elon Musk's decision not to buy Twitter, Nicole Kidman kissing, and much more. The episode closes with a The Bellas sharing special Inspiration & Affirmations.

Buddy has been on the hunt for snacks, Birdie's loved giving directions to all the adults, and Matteo has been throwing as many rocks in the lake as possible. Nikki & Brie came to the realization that they are in a much different phase of life now because of the visceral reactions to watching people do shots at the beach and candid disappointment with the latest crop of suits that the swimwear industry popularized for moms. When it comes to life on the beach in bathing suits, they're looking for the MILF cut. Nikki has been worn out after an intense weekend with Matteo. He caught a stomach bug, and she's been Nurse Nikki for the past few days as she does everything she can to help a struggling Matteo feel better. With rocket-powered vomit happening in the house, Brie's washing machine has been operating at max capacity the entire time. Nikki has to tap out, but the Bellas Podcast welcomes Brie's husband, Bryan Danielson, for a new game: Bellas Choice. A game that leads to some startling revelations. Could Bryan really fake his own death? And why wouldn't he tell Brie if he did it?

Acknowledging that her people-pleasing ways might have created a frantic moving experience, Nikki has vowed to stick up for herself and her family without hesitation moving forward.

And Brie beamed when telling Nikki about an airport surprise. A little distance didn't stop Bryan from pulling out all the stops for Brie on Mother's Day, and Nikki's Sunday didn't go to plan after such a wild weekend with a big move after Matteo's nap schedule was derailed and could only be fixed with donuts and cheesy puffs, which leads to a great discussion about when and where to give into toddlers. Nikki also shares some exclusive details about her new game show with Blake Shelton and Carson Daly on USA Network and The Bellas reflect on growing up on a farm and love of Country music, Shania Twain, and Gwen Stefani.
