“Basketball Wives’” Gloria Govan sat down w/ Vibe and address the rumors and being a basketball wife.
On rumors that her sister had an affair with Shaquille O’Neal: “[My] sister doesn’t entertain those types of rumors because it’s unnecessary and we know it’s not true.”
On why she joined the Basketball Wives cast: “When we were approached by Shaunie in the very beginning she told us both that it was going to be about positive women trying to step outside the shadows of their significant others and really try to bring a positive light to the basketball wives, because a majority of us are stereotyped as being uneducated nutcases spending all of our time shopping with thousands of nannies and very chaotic so we were excited,” Govan says, explaining the couple’s initial interest in her joining the cast. “Matt and I were both excited to show people that this is not how it is so I think when we saw the finished product we were like, ‘Wait a minute.’ We were trying to buy coffee and someone sold us tea. This is the complete opposite of what we were told the show was going to be about.”
On groupies: “Groupies and infidelity will play as much of a part in your relationship as you allow it to play and that’s one of my main points in the show. If you respect yourself and you demand a certain amount of respect then your significant other will have no choice but to respect that and your guidelines that you’ve set.” Here for the full story.
