The episode is available now on, they sent us these excerpts from the interview:

Dancing with the Stars and Its Effect on John Cena

"I fell in love with dance. I have not, in so many years – and this was hard on John because I was very honest with him - but I have not felt this young and, like, alive…And now I found this new passion, and I felt young and free."

What She Never Wanted to Share on Camera:

"What was weird for me - and this was the crazy experience - since I was 15, I told myself, 'I will never depend on a man. I will never need someone.' And I joined this competition, and I have to depend on a man, and I have to need someone… I was feeling all these emotions, so I was bottling myself up, and I knew this could have made amazing TV for them. I didn't want it to be forced. But I would go home at night, and there were times that I would cry."
