If your television is religiously set to VH1 at 8pm on Monday nights (like ours are), then you know what a force to be reckoned with Laura Govan has been this season on “Basketball Wives: LA”. This season, Laura pretty much gave Jackie Christie a taste of her own medicine, when she acted like her friend to her face and not-so-much behind closed doors and with out cast-mates. Our friends at Juicy Magazine interviewed Laura for an explanation on this season’s entertaining story line between she and Jackie. Peep excerpts from the interview below.
On getting revenge on Jackie:
“I wanted to mirror exactly how she treated me last year. For her to go back and forth with that shit was exhausting. I didn’t even tell my sister what I was doing until the end, and she was prying it out of me. I didn’t wanna hear any opinions, and I didn’t give a fuck. I knew how I was going to deal with it. Immature or not, I didn’t give a shit how the world seen it. I got my rocks off so I was good. It was a lot y’all didn’t get to see.”
On her feelings on Draya:
“I didn’t like Draya [season 1] for scenes off camera, you guys couldn’t see. With Draya, I’m like, you’re still a slut bucket, but Draya is Draya. She does her thing. She’s like a blunt, you smoke it, you hit it, you pass it and then you toss it and then its a roach and you keep it moving. This year, she’s still…”
On how she portrays black women on television:
“If you look at TV and you think that I’m portraying who you are as a Black woman you have issues. Look at TV for what it is – entertainment. If you want to be entertained watch my show. If you want to watch a woman portraying Black women, watch Oprah, don’t watch me.”
