Gabrielle Union Denies Rumors She Married Dwyane Wade For Money
Gabrielle Union recently sat down with Yahoo Style to talk about life as a busy working wife. Gabbi first shoots down rumors that she hooked up with Heat baller Dwyane Wade to keep her relevant and pocketbook full.
“For women in Hollywood, when they’re coupling, everything is about the brand. Everything is about latching on to a rising star, so you can kick your heels up. That’s never been my story, ever. I make sure to let people know all of the hard work that’s gone into my career. I want people to know the work that it took to get through UCLA, that I had student loans and worked. I was eating Top Ramen and lived well below my means. Now that it’s time to get married to a man who happens to play basketball and has done well for himself, I want to make it clear that I have in no way hitched my wagon to his star. I have my own wagon and star.”
The “Being Mary Jane” star says she loves her starring role on the hit BET show but admits her character is a home-wrecker:
“I think initially she is a home wrecker. He was dishonest. He started a relationship under false pretenses [by not telling her he was married], but I think she became a bit morally bankrupt on the way. That narrative is important to tell, which is why I was all for the story line. It shows what happens and all of the people who are affected in an affair. I look at it as a morality tale.”
Gabbi later ends all the ‘Scandal’ comparisons and says her show is nothing like her ABC competition:
“What bugs me is that they’re making the comparison because they’re both shows that star black women. It’s such apples and oranges. It’s like comparing True Detective and Law & Order — you would never do that. What it says is we need so much more diversity in TV. We need shows starring women of color or women of a certain age or women who aren’t a size 2. If that happens, the world isn’t going to end.”
Gabrielle seems to have this whole working mom and wife thing figured out. What do you think of Gabrielle’s latest interview?Let’s just hope DWade can stay out the “break baby” business this time around.
