Basketball Wives LA’s Gloria Govan is speaking out since the second season is finally over. While speculation continues on whether or not she’ll be back for season three, the newly married reality star gives her two cents about her lack of love for Bambi, being Besties with Brooke Bailey and other entertainment. Check excerpts from the interview below.
What’s going on with the acting? Your webisodes have aired and there was talk of a film being attached to them as well.
The webisodes are on Shaq Comedy Network and they were the prelude to the feature, which is being shopped around to Lion’s Gate, Universal, and Paramount. Fingers crossed, we’ll see!
At a certain point in the season it seemed like you and Bambi were fine, and then there was a moment where you called her a rookie and she told you she wanted to f— you up and it all changed.
The funny thing is Bambi is not a cast member. She is Malaysia’s friend. So it’s like your plus-one having an opinion, you’re just a guest, it was frustrating, because for someone who came on the show as a fan and to support her friend to have an opinion was frustrating. Especially about stuff that she really didn’t have a clue about that went on with Laura and Jackie last year. That relationship is so complex, for an outsider to have an opinion about it was just funny to me. It’s fine if she has an opinion, but to try and amend something you don’t know anything about, it was just too much. So I called her a rookie and her trying to find a place on the show, she escalated it. My beef with Bambi, I broke it down in the last episode, I was like, I don’t care where you’re from, Compton or wherever, that has noting to do with the price of rice, and I think her pride was a little offended. But she says it in the first episode, she’s someone who talks behind people’s backs and smiles in your face, so I can’t really take her seriously. The beef between us was and is completely ridiculous.
Did the tension between you two mess with your relationship with Malaysia?
Malaysia’s and my relationship has never really been that strong, so even if it did, I didn’t really notice. At the end of the day, I would never expect Malaysia to hop on my side of things, so I really wasn’t losing a friend. If me and Bambi’s situation was messing with me and Brooke’s relationship, or me and my sister’s, then maybe I should mend things. But Malaysia and I were never strong in the first place.
It’s crazy how close you became with Brooke.
Absolutely! When you’re introduced to someone in that way, through a third person, and you become closer to that person, it becomes a little weird, especially when me, Brooke, and Draya would hang out, and me and Brooke would have inside jokes or our moments. I was really surprised because I came in very guarded with my wall up, not sure whose motives were what, and we became close. I never in a million years would have guessed that.
Who would you have thought you’d get closer to this season?
Maybe Draya, honestly. She’s younger, ambitious, and just fun…I don’t dislike Draya, I did feel like she was going to be the person I’d start to lean toward and become better friends with. Now, we’re just kinda Switzerland. We’re friends, we don’t have any beef, but I don’t really talk about her when I don’t see her. I think she’s a good person with a lot of stuff going on.
