Gabrielle Union Breaks Down Why She’ll Never Be A Basketball Wife

- By Bossip Staff

Gabrielle Union sure is talking that sh*t now that her relationship with D. Wade has proven to be much more serious than any of his other post-separation/pre-divorce situations.

She was recently asked during an interview whether she would ever consider doing a reality show. To which she responded:

“I pay my own bills, first off, so I’ve never put myself in a position to have to be jackass or to have to sell myself down the river for a reality show. I was just raised a little differently and my situation is a lot different being that I have my own career, my own celebrity status on my own, independent, and before him. But, I don’t knock anybody’s hustle, it’s just not my path.”

Wow. Shots fired at Shaunie and her crew of Basketball/Football wives and wannabees? Or at Crazy A** Siohvaughn??

Should LaLa feel some type of way?

      NICE NEWS !
      My friend Vanessa, a 25 yrs lady, has announced her wedding with a m’illionaire young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC. It’s amazing, she said she just posted her profile on a m’illionaire d’ating s’ite called ———-RichMatchmaker. ℃○M——– – and received his chat invitations a few days later. Then, everything went so well that I can’t believe it’s true! Every love story will unfold on it’s own..——-

    • Jada

      Gabby looks like she was smoking something! Why are her lips purple and crusty?

    • plznoooo

      Carmelo married that girl. If she feels anything it should be to keep her married man away from Gabby. By history we know she doesn’t care about that situation.

  • meyow

    LaLa had a career before Melo so LaLa shouldn’t feel any way Lalaut it. The chicks on BW ain’t got nothing on Lala.

    • MzR

      I know!! LaLa has her own grind but those skanks on BBW are just former jumpoffs gone wrong!!!

  • Nana

    Yeah its all good till the phone STOPS ringing……..then u would b giving Shaunie a call!!!

    • YokoDMV

      RIGHT. and if she wasn’t “knocking anybody’s hustle” she would have kept these comments to herself *side-eye* and i don’t even like these wives/babymama shows

  • jazzy

    To each his own, make that money, do not let it make you!

  • DefToYourSwag

    BooM!!!..Waiting for Shaunie’s response.

    • Haze

      I know right? I’m waiting too cause both these chics are educated with college degrees. Not really sure what Shaunie did after her HBCU years but Gabby did have some level of her own-no one can deny her that-even if the situation was shady looking between her D.Wade (a.k.a. big jaws.


    Has Gabrielle been bleachin?

    • chrissy

      no she got on umpa lumpa make up…cuz she looks orange….lol

    • 504_MsGV

      Gabrielle reminds me of Char from the Bad Girls Club. But that was kind of cold what she said, or how she put it.

  • Kayla

    What career is SHE talking about?

    • Dont Think I Won't Hitch Yah--Cause I'm Famous, I believe in KARMA

      LOL, LOL…

  • Innocent_truth

    Lala had an MTV career that wasn’t paying sh*t! She lucked up and jumped on Melo’s bandwagon for financial stability. Nobody really knew who Lala was(outside the black community) until she got with Melo!

  • chanel

    Lala had what career? A washed up vj on mtv on a show that cancelled,lala wants to be more famous than what she is.everytime u see her she photo with kim k or ciara u really think thses hoes friends,she had her lil whack reality show 15 minutes r up continue riding the coat times of ur “friends” nd ur hubby.come on be honest everytime u hear bout her her hubby name or someone famous is attached to it

  • Megamen

    she keeps talking that inpendent non-sense and pretty soon she well be single agian like the other 70%

  • wtfever

    HA! I love it! I dont like Gabby, but respect what she said.

  • Shananigans

    i like what she said

    • twerr

      me 2…an i agree with her

  • Lisa

    I don’t see anything wrong with what she said. She does have a career not to mention a degree. We heard of her long before she got with Wade. How many people knew about Royce,Evelyn, Susie, Gloria or Jennifer?

    • lovelife73

      that is true

  • Greeneyedbandit

    Let them know Gabby!

  • http://bossip renee

    I’m sorry but my gut tells me this trick is psyco ! I wouldn’t leave her weird a.s.s. around my dog, nutty trick ! I see derranged & delusional when I look at her and lsiten to her talk. Let me let it be known I study people for a living and she’s not playing with a full deck !

    • TK

      Seriously Renee. Seriously. Unless ur guy has been with her then he really doesn’t know anything about her. And FYI men always talk ish about former girlfriends or women they would have loved to F*** just so that their new woman feels extra special.

  • darkandlovely

    Some people to think before they speak…wasn’t. D Wade married when the hooked up…so she can do a reality show home wreckers……

  • resurrected

    So let me get this right you was raise to have more respect for yourself but just not enough respect not to sleep with someone else husband. Gabbie why are you with D Wade if you really have no future plans?

    • FridaySpecial

      mmhmm cause you know all the details. Tell me some more girl, what else happened?

  • Kweli

    I like what Gabby said too! She spoke the truth, hands down.

  • Jay the Real One

    I’d rather see her than those she-males on that show

  • msdavis

    I think most of you missed the point. Simply put, she doesn’t need the money ie: the reason these unknown BBBaby Mamas are on the show.

    YES D.Wade was “legally married” when they started dating however, he was SEPARATED ie: he was in transition. Just because you’re LEGALLY attached to a spouse….are you not entitled to move on with your life in pursuit of authentic happiness? Whoever truly thinks that you should remain single until the Judge grants you a divorce is delusional. Some divorces take 3-10 years if you have someone who is constantly contesting, especially if you have lots of money, if children and property is involved…GET A LIFE and BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF.

    The hands on the clock keep on ticking! Life goes on.

    • H-Town

      Your comments sounds like some one whom has never been married before. And the logic you just used you more then likely never will be married or at least for long. Your vows are for better or worse that includes during the divorce. It is not over until it is over! Life does go on but it should be put into perspective which obviously he has not…so his moving on with Ms. Gabby before the divorce is final means before her and Dwades marriage falls apart (that is if he even marries her) he will have moved on from her also, life has a way of holding us accountable whether we want to admit it or not. We may not see her get hers like she gave it to Shavonna but do believe she will get hers if she is not getting it already from what I been hearing!

    • htown

      Gabby is too good,too intelligent. D Wade will stay with her because she is quality. D Wades first wife looks like a ignorant ghetto crap bag. Gabby is not a home wrecker at all. D Wades first marriage was simply a bad situation.

  • CUT the BULLSH!T

    Not mad at Gabrielle. Not everyone wants to be some golddigging, babymaking clucker aching for their 15 minutes of fame.

  • MyReason

    I’m with Gabby on this one 100%. Reality shows are for people WISHING to become a celebrity. She would definitely be playing herself if she joined a show like “Basketball Wives”.

  • rudeashell

    she won’t be a wife because she ain’t gonna get married. but one thing i can say is that at least she has talent and she was rich before she got with D.Wade unlike them hoes on basketball wives

    Shaunie had a career before-she was in PR for a NY company.
