Amid Brie’s explanation, Nikki interrupts her and replies, “No, it’s not your duty, Brie. This is my relationship. My postpartum depression. What I’m going through.”

“But you’re drowning!” Brie defends. “Artem was actually very, very happy that I told him because Artem doesn’t want you to drown.”

Nikki repeats that she didn’t want her fiancĂ© to know after DWTS, but Brie interrupts, “You can’t put postpartum depression on hold.”

“They keep calling me and complaining and saying all these things,” she adds. “So what, should I just answer this call every day, listen to it and do nothing about it?”
