Media stars “The Bella Twins” have Scottsdale roots and total control of their travel must-haves.

Twins Brie and Nikki Bella (original surname Garcia-Colace) are strong women—they’re WWE superstars who have parlayed their athleticism into two hit reality shows on E!, Total Divas and Total Bellas. Nikki has tangoed on Dancing with the Stars. And both are always trending on social media, with more than 1.25 million subscribers on YouTube and millions of followers on Instagram.

They’ve also branched out into motivational speaking and other business interests, launching Birdiebee, a women’s athleisure and intimates line, that Brie says is meant “for strong women, women who use their voices”; and partnering with a Napa winery to create Belle Radici wine, with a reserve chardonnay and a cabernet set to debut this spring. “We’re wine snobs,” says Nikki, “so we didn’t just want to do a celebrity wine. It had to be good.”

So, yes, the Scottsdale-raised, Chaparral High grads are in the limelight and on the road a lot, racking up flight points as they travel between various homes, appearances, businesses and charitable projects. And, sometimes, the travel is just for pleasure. Brie, who became a mom a year ago, recently joined her sister for a girls’ trip to Paris. Fun, shopping, cafe visits and Eiffel Tower selfies ensued.
