The Celebreality Interview – Gloria Govan

|

gloria_interview

Basketball Wives is full of reporting on the underbelly of sports relationships, which makes Gloria Govan the show’s one true romantic. She’s happily engaged to Matt Barnes of the Orlando Magic, much to the chagrin of her cast mates, who think that Gloria’s relationship isn’t as rosy as she thinks it is (even the show’s detached narrator, Shaunie, referred to Gloria as “naive”). Below, Gloria talks to us about being the black sheep of Basketball Wives, her “sleeping with the enemy” comment regarding Royce Reed, her fiance’s negative opinion of the show, and why she isn’t a fan of it herself.

And how do you feel about the show? Do you feel like your portrayal is accurate?

To a certain extent. I didn’t know the women coming into the show, so I think sometimes I may come off a little naive. I may come off as the shy-girl-in-the-background type, which is not my personality at all. I’ve never had a problem telling anybody how I feel. On the show, though, I’m being me, 100 percent real the whole time so there’s no surprises. I haven’t seen any surprises.

Speaking of naive, that’s what Shaunie labels you as at one point, and she’s piggybacking off of Evelyn and Jennifer sentiments about your relationship. What do you think about that?

I think it’s unfortunate. I don’t think I’m naive whatsoever. For me to say that I’m the only person that Matt’s ever been with, that would be naive. But I know the man that I’m with. We have our ups and we have our downs just like everybody else does. We’ve made mistakes but we’ve grown from them and moved past them, but I definitely wouldn’t say I’m naive. I’m aware that Matt is surrounded by groupies, being away from home as often as he is, but I know the kind of man I’m with and I trust him. I think I’m very fortunate in an unlucky way — Matt having lost his mom, I think, has really opened his eyes to how important family really is. I don’t think he’s willing to jeopardize it for anything.

What did you think of the fact that Jennifer and Evelyn seem insistent on pushing the point that he’s not as faithful as you seem to think he is?

You have these grown women who have been in the game for so long, and you would think they would say, “Hey listen, Gloria, I’ve been there done that for the past 10 years and here are my stories, here is my advice, take it for what it’s worth and good luck.” Instead they have to be so persistent and try to taint our relationship. I look at it as being bitter and jealous. I’m 10 years younger than most of the cast members on the show, I’m 24-years-old, and I’m in a respectful, loving relationship, I’m getting married in August, I have two beautiful kids and a family who loves me, and a lot of them are missing a majority of those components. It’s natural for them to be envious of what I have.

They’ve gone as far as to suggest that they have, maybe secondhand evidence, that Matt has been unfaithful to you. Do you have any response to that?

No. I think that they’re just very scarred individuals who don’t have anything else better to do than try to create misery. They would be happy if I was where they are now, and that’s unfortunate. If you’re someone who thrives on someone else’s misery and you’re trying to break up a happy home, I just think it’s kind of sad.

On the show, regarding Matt’s personal business you said, “If you go digging for dirt, you’ll get your hands dirty.” Can you explain what you meant by that?

If someone is saying, “Matt is this and Matt is that,” and you break into e-mails and you look in phones and you find nothing, I think that satisfaction becomes overwhelming and you assume this role of being a detective and an investigator. You start to lose who you are. I’m definitely not going to say that Matt is perfect. Who is? But I don’t worry about Matt being on the road. I don’t.

What did you think about Matt saying the show “disgusted” him in a recent interview?

Matt is very opinionated. I just asked him to make sure that he pinpoints exactly what disgusts him next time. That’s just such a broad and vague comment that it could be interpreted in any way. It didn’t surprise me, though. Matt has told me several times that he doesn’t like the show. It’s not necessarily about my role, but just how bitter the other women are. Bitter and angry and just jealous. He’s just like, “That’s not a good look, that’s not who you are, that’s not who you represent.” I think he’s more concerned about people thinking that I run in this kind of circle, because I don’t. I can’t say that I was disgusted by the first episode, but you know, I wasn’t really a fan.

Oh, really? Has your attitude changed since then?

No. I mean, I’m still not a fan of the show. I joined the show after Shaunie approached me last year in Phoenix and she had been pretty persistent over the summer about it. She said, “Hey, listen, the show is not going to be about drama, it’s not going to be about groupies. It’s about independent women trying to come out of the shadows of their significant others.” I was all about that. I’m involved in several charities, I’m an entrepreneur myself. I’m a stay-at-home mom, so I was definitely willing to show people that we’re not gold diggers. We don’t shop and spend all day at the spa. We don’t have six butlers and four nannies and personal chef. That’s not what this life is about.

Even with the drama, I do get the sense that you all have your own stuff going on.

I think the show maybe touches on those things, but I don’t think it’s the main focus. It’s supposed to be about friendship and showing people we’re a support group for one another, and that definitely doesn’t come off in the show. That’s unfortunate, because we really are a support group for one another. We’re not catty, cliquey people. We’re all in the same boat together, so we’re all very respectful of people’s situations.

Are you referring to the people you’re on the show with?

No, no, no. My friends. And not just my immediate circle, but majority of the women in the NBA.

Your storyline isn’t exactly drama-free, though. When you talk about Royce you say to fraternize with her would be like sleeping with the enemy.

What I mean by that is Royce is Dwight Howard’s baby mother, and Matt is on the same team as Dwight Howard, so being friends with Royce is not worth messing up Matt’s team camaraderie. If Royce comes over here and we’re all buddy-buddy and Matt’s around, that could really end up messing up Matt and Dwight’s friendship.

Regardless of whether or not Royce is a nice person, this overrides that?

Yeah absolutely, yeah. You’re talking about something long term. You’re talking about a championship. You’re talking about my fiancé’s career, his friendships. That definitely precedes my friendship to Royce, absolutely.

Was this always your concern with Royce, or did you develop it after getting to know her?

It was a concern immediately with Royce. I feel Royce’s actions sort of justify why women, wives and girlfriends in general should be concerned with the proximity or the availability that cheerleaders have to basketball players.

Obviously the reason she was so aggressive in the boxing ring is because everyone had sort of informed her of your opinion of her. Did you feel betrayed by everyone at that point?

Not necessarily betrayed, I just think that they realize that I’m not going to conform to their little group, and so I think they try really hard to make me the black sheep or the outsider. Which is fine. I don’t have a problem with that, it was just kind of funny that they try to make it seem like I’m the only one who feels this way. They’re so quick to tell Royce, “Oh, well Gloria said this,” but in turn, they were agreeing with me or it may have been that they started the conversation and I just chimed in a little bit. I just think it was everybody’s opportunity to say, “Now we have a way to turn the tables.”

Was it disappointing or stressful at all for you that you were made out to be the black sheep?

I wouldn’t say disappointing, no. I actually like being the black sheep. I like representing who I am and letting people know that I just don’t conform to peer pressure and everything. Was it stressful? To a certain degree. That kind of stuff doesn’t bother me, though. I graduated high school obviously and graduated college, so those high school cliques don’t stress me out whatsoever.

I’m sure that you don’t want to get into it about your sister’s alleged affair with Shaq, but did that add any level of stress as well? The fact that you were coming in with people already whispering about your family?

No. Like I said, in the show, they already formed their opinions and they’re already friends with Shaunie. And although I’m friends with Shaunie, I can’t say that we talk on the phone or we text each other. We are cordial, but she’s not invited to my wedding. She’s not that type of friend, so it didn’t bother me. You guys have already formed your own opinions, and I’m not here to change that. I’m here to say you’re not going to talk about my sister in front of me and think that that’s OK.

This show kind of presents you as a minority. Certainly you’re the only person that isn’t jaded about your relationship. You seem to be the only person who believes in the possibility of monogamy. In the overall scheme of basketball-wifery that goes beyond this show, are you a minority?

No, not at all. That’s unfortunate, too, because I think that the cast members of the show stereotype all athletes and put them all under this one umbrella because they were scarred and they were disrespected and they were in a relationship that was unsuccessful. So it’s easy to point the finger and say, “Well he cheated on me, so because everybody plays basketball, they cheat on wives, too.” And that’s not the case. We all have to deal with the same stuff, the groupies, and we do all have to deal with the concerns of possible infidelity, but that’s not the case whatsoever. There are tons of relationships that are great and healthy and respectful and have been long term, so I am definitely not a minority on the league, but definitely on the show.

Knowing what you know about the way the show turned out, would you do it all over again?

No. No, no.

Would you participate in a second season?

No.

Wow. I think you might be the first person on VH1 to have a taste of reality TV not to want more of it. You talked about Shaunie presenting the show as a way for you to break out and show your independence. Do you feel like you’re living in Matt’s shadow?

I think being married to somebody that casts such a big shadow is difficult and Matt has been in the limelight since he was 18. It’s difficult to stand on your own and say, “Well, wait a minute, I’m not just Matt’s fiancé, I’m Gloria.” If I had my own limelight coming in, then it would be a different story. But I think trying to create or establish some sort of individuality is always challenging.

You mentioned your charities and the fact that you’re an entrepreneur, can you talk about that a little bit?

I’m the executive director for Athletes vs. Cancer, which is Matt’s foundation, and we do a lot of events that’s not just cancer based, but we do a lot of events that help underprivileged children or for young women who had children who don’t have the supplies that they need. We’re also doing something with Hoop Connection, which helps provide scholarships to underprivileged children or children who maybe have the potential but don’t have the outlets or the networking skills to go out there and get a scholarship. I just got on board to do one of the Florida Children’s Hospital’s biggest events next year, also. My parents own night clubs in California and that’s something both my brother and I are looking to do in Orlando. I actually have a baby product out. It’s a mattress that should help prevent SIDS. There are a lot of things that the show doesn’t portray or doesn’t show, so that’s frustrating.

    these chicks all have kids?

    this chick is 24 and already has 2 kids with this guy and isn’t married yet?

    these women are rotten.

  2. Alice says:

    I love Gloria. She says it like it is and i dont blame her for defending herself and her sister as much as she does, not to mention that she has to with all those animals around constantly starting drama like its high school. Mannifer, Evil-yn, and hoodrat Royce need to mind they’re own business. What happened between Shaq and her sister is they’re business, not the worlds like that other broad says…whats her name again? Sissy? (The ugly one with the lisp.) And for all the other “women” on the show, have you noticed that Shaunie isnt on the show with you girls? Its cuz she doesnt want to embarass herself by &@&~*($+_(+@^)$ ociating with pigs like that. So all you b****’s need to get over yourself and grow up.

  3. Patty says:

    This chick serious? She thinks shes better but she talks behind their back like the rest of the crew. She aint even married to his $)$$+&+*)_#%&(& and she sitting there all high and mighty. I like the fact that she saying her and Matt have a stronger bond cause his mother passed away. So she’s using that to her advantage thinking that he won’t leave her because of that. And I got news for you…the same way you met your boo is the same way these groupies meet the players. You and your sister are no better ya damn gold diggers. Get off your mighty horse before your boyfriend’s groupies knock you down on it. lol

  4. yolanda says:

    All i have to say is BRAVO GLORIA I AM NOW YOUR biggest fan. I Love the way you stand and represent yourself. You go Girl. Much Love Happiness and Peace

  5. Yvonne says:

    I admire Gloria for standing up for herself. She’s real and shouldn’t be on this show. It’s sad Shaunie took this route with Basketball Wives I think if the show took a more positive spin it would still be successful. Gloria, stand your ground concerning your relationship. All of the other women appear to be bitter, petty and dysfunctional especially Jennifer. She is the only one who is actually married and admitted herself her husband wants to start over but she is on TV putting him down. Very sad…Also interviewer do a word check it should be whether not weather on one of the questions. Do you not have editors? Not trying to be mean but I can edit for you if you need it. Go Gloria marry your man and live happily ever after…praying for you girl!

  6. Mimi says:

    These people humor me with their opinions, who are we to judge? I love Gloria’s personality and attitude. It’s sad that people hope and expect for her relationship to fail. She has a great amount of faith and apparently trust in God. Gloria keep doing you regardless of what is said wrong or right, she continues to hold her ground. Continue to keep it 100!

  7. ELLAINE says:

    what was a smart woman like you doing with a bunch of air heads in that show anyway????????.

  8. Nick says:

    Please cancel this show as soon as possible….there is absolutely no substance to these woman or to this show. PUUUULEASE! I love how the woman are introduced as “The Ex of so and so!” LOL. I cannot wait for this rash to clear up haha.
    Nick

  9. Rich Juzwiak says:

    Thanks for that. “Weather” is how it was transcribed, but I obviously didn’t pick that up in editing. It’s fixed now.

  10. nadou says:

    Gloria I think you do think that you are high and mighty because of Matt. Nevertheless, I respect you for sticking up for your sis, I would have done the same. This show is purly GARBAGE and really needs to be CANCEL

  11. dedememe says:

    she has twins

  12. nadou says:

    Gloria I think you do think that you are high and mighty because of Matt. Nevertheless, I respect you for sticking up for your sis, I would have done the same. This show is purly GARBAGE and really needs to be CANCEL…. Gloria good for you, you don’t need to be around those dirty females run far away. I think that you shouldn’t listen to what other ppl have to say when it comes to your man. Matt is right U don’t need that toxicity in your life. I THINK YOU R THE BEST MOMMY OUT OF ALL OF THEM! WHY? BECASUE YOU TAKE CARE OF UR CHILDREN ON UR OWN, THE WAY IT’S SUPPOSE TO BE.

  13. faatinma says:

    i like gloria and she should trust her man HELL whats a relationship if yu dnt have trust so all these basketball wives and other females that dnt have a man……..STOP HATIN

  14. terri says:

    gloria,it is good to trust your man,but always keep your eyes and ears open,and don’t fall apart,if you find out your man is cheating,always stay kool and have a back-up plan……..why if he is so in love with you,havn’t he married you,their are 2 children involved in your relationship……..think about it young lady,it does not take a lifetime to get married.

  15. tomakebeats.com says:

    Gloria is the only one I actually like on the show

  16. Danny says:

    Gloria is the ONLY woman on the show. The rest are little girls trying to get money especially that Jennifer! Jennifer I watch the show and I truly feel bad for you. You seem so lonely and sad but you got name brand items. Those items don’t keep you warm at night or can’t communicate with you. Be a Real Woman like Gloria stop talking about her and do what you gotta do about your marriage. Stand up and have a back bone like Gloria.

  17. jamaican princess says:

    Gloria I like u, and ur relationship. But, if u are to be independent from Matt then u should be able to pick ur own friends. Beside u Royce is the only other real female on that show. She is truly a ride or die chick. She was ur friend.

  18. tloc says:

    Hats off to Gloria…This show is stupid. Why the heck would you allow yourself to be part of this show… Sorry Shaunie but you got a bunch of stupid women to poorly represent basketball wives and to top it off there not even married to them anymore. Jennifer is on her way out as well. THey are messy and childish and it is no wonder their husbands/boyfriends want to leave them or left them. Come on now can we get a show of some worth. I wish Gloria would have laid Royce out in the ring. Royce is lucky this was just a show because she would of got her short little tail whooped.

  19. Breana says:

    Hey i love Gloria i love how real and straight forward she is i wish there were more women on the show like her and her fiance Matt barnes and her beautiful children because i agree that there is some ++^$@*&$+&%%*&@ ociation of basketball player and infedility and i think thats not always the case, at first i thought this show would show being a basketball wife from all angles and not just one, but gloria govan has inspired me and im a college student to avoid conforming to stereotypes and trust the person you with and openly voice your opinion i feel youGloria and i love you showing those other girls what love is really about, Do ya thing G and congrats!

  20. Ms. Sybblis says:

    Good for you Jennifer! Never, ever let anyone or any group push you to conform to their standards or views. I am very proud of the way you handled yourself in the midst of chaos. Congrats to you and Matt!

  21. ruthless says:

    GOooooooo Gloria and the only reason why Ms. Oneal wanted you on the show is to bash you and try you and your sister. It was kinda her way of trying your sister. They are old bitter B******

  22. Samantha says:

    Gloria, I think that you are right for defending your sister, any family member of mine i would defend without a second thought (right or wrong). On the other hand though I do not think that you talking about Royce behind her back was the right think to do even if the other girls where doing it, therefore i dont think you are a blacksheep. You all are backstabbing eachother I thought this show was about you guys sticking together? Instead its mainly about trash talking one another, being rotten, and based on childish arguments.

  23. Debrico says:

    I love this chick. She’s real and holds her mouth for nobody. The rest like she said can suck it easy:).

  24. squids says:

    gloria stop being so naive…. we can all see there was some infidelity problems and no matter what way you say it… we have our ups and down we all know their was some dirty %`!$^_~*^+%&&@#~ there…. your making it that your the high and mighty one .. your sister is a tramp so dont even go on saying %`!$^_~*^+%&&@#~ about royce when the black sheep is in your family… if you didnt like the show then you shouldnt have gone on it fake *(^%$&@^*^#`~#*#`

  25. moe says:

    I know most of the others are bitter but don’t be naive. Every realtionship is different I know. People may think they know what is going on, but really ya’ll business is ya’ll business.

  26. kymbo says:

    Gloria, is the real one of the show. I have never seen such immature women, I see why your men are cheating on you. Y’all are so much drama and the lil girl size zero they are pulling you in. Have a back bone! Women get some business of your own and stay out of others! Jen girl get a real man and stop living off of eric! yup that clearly what you are doing.

  27. Lyn says:

    I LOVE GLORIA..I THINK SHE IS A WONDERFUL WOMEN & I KNOW THOSE OTHER BROADS ON THE SHOW ARE JEALOUS OF WHAT SHE HAS..

  28. Alake says:

    I’m old of to be the mother of most of these women. I;ve only been watching for a few weeks. The one I admire is Gloria. She walked into that ring set up by the three odler women to be attacked by the other younger woman. Its like they older women were just sitting back enjoying how they got the two younger ones to be emimies. Tha;s just plain evil. Instead of being a good example of sisterhood, they get them to turn on each other. Their lies of ommission convieniently allowing them to just enjoy the fight. None of them admitted to saying exactly the same things as Gloria about Royce. “… she said she couldn’t hang out with you”. How could they do that when theyt said the same things. How evil!!! Women like this make all of us mistrust each other. Gloria is more woman than they will ever be all put together. I love the way Gloria stepped up and defeneded herself when she realized Royce meant to do harm. I hate the way the other women sat there ready to enjoy the harm they put Royce up to doing to Gloria. I love the way Gloria responded afterwards accepting that she didn’t need evil women like them in her life.

  29. tprissy4 says:

    i realy hate this show! its same old stuff like the others, and futher more, most are not married why the
    named it that,is beyound me. too bad they cant buy some
    class with some of their money. their all a mess nothin
    to miss on this show!!

  30. Danielle says:

    I Love Gloria!!! I hate Evelyn, Jennifer, and the other chick because they talk tons of *~((~^_@`+_+~!&# about royace and make fun of her and they think they are all high and mighty!!! I thought this show was to be about the basketball wives!!!! Not the has beens!!!! And that is what it is!! I believe that you can find someone to live your life with and not be cheated on!! Not everyone is that way!! GET OVER YOURSELVES ALREADY!!! GLORIA IS WHAT ORLANDO MOM’S ARE ALL ABOUT!!!

  31. Lela Gaines says:

    Prayerfull you learned that none of the basket ball wives are your friends. They’re all messy. As far as you sister goes kudos to you, while i don’t condone adultry yor sister is for life!!!. And for them to expect for you to bash your sister shows just how in mature they are. God has blessed you beyond measure you have two wonderful children and a successful husband who loves you.Be grateful and stay encouraged.

  32. keisha says:

    Gloria I think you are very young and naive. Never swear for a man. I am sure everyones relationship starts out like that. This has nothing to do with athletes, this has to do with men. I hope to hear you 10 years from now singing the same song. All I am saying is swear for knowone. The show is just something to watch when you’re bored. Royce needs to pump her brakes. Back to gloria, you have a better than attitude. Why? I don’t know. If you feel like you are on cloud 100 you should not have done the show. You really need to bring it down two because to me you are very very naive. your boyfriend did an excellent job brain washing you. You are all mens dream. Naive, young and would fall for their bull. Good luck. I feel sorry for you in advance. Lol!

  33. SJ says:

    Shaunie should talk about how SHE met Shaq. Explain THOSE circumstances. Now THAT would be interesting. Hmmmmmm

  34. Rebeca says:

    Gloria is awsome. These other wives are so hateful. This show proves money can’t buy class. Would like to see Gloria if a second season comes back. Keep up the good work. She is so pretty too, she looks like Alicia Keys.

  35. Dira says:

    This show really needs to be cancelled!!!!!!! Firstly Gloria you are truly a wonderful women who is strong and devoted don’t let those other b****s get to you , just keep being you and keep carrying yourself with self respect ,what ever goes on between you and matt is your buisness and no one else. You really need to break away from these worthless women. Jennifer get a life divorce the man or stay and try to make it work “NEWS FLASH” the reason you have problems is because number one your never home your always out partying with the girls, try staying home for once and being a real _$~`$`*^&$(++__ wife, if not ignore him and go do you go back to college and get a degree or something. What the hell do you do anyway. And lastly you ain’t fooling no one your the most ghetto one of the all and yes you are fake. Susan or Suzi whatever I did’nt even no you were a mother until Royce said so What the hell kind of mother are you , who pushes a married women to cheat on their husband that pure s***. Try spending time with your kids instead of leaving them with nannies. Evelyn honestly hats off to you for opening your own buisness on your own but you really need to get over whatever his name is any fool can see your not and my God your petty so what if Gloria’s sister is sleeping with Shaq are you it is none of your buisness you ghetto baby mama try to set an example for your child. Royce Royce Royce, why the hell are you on this show the name of the show is Basketball Wives not Ex Dancer Groupey Party Hour. Your a beautiful young women you need to check yourself because its obvious that you have groupy tendencies get a real job and your own man . And so what if Gloria does not want one on ones with you thats understandable you have no respect for yourself and other peoples men. This show will not have a second season its trash Shaunie Come Again hun these are not what real Basket Ball wives do and if it is no wonder why most of you all marriges don’t last.
    This show is so high school. Grown _$~`$`*^&$(++__ women in a Clique please.

  36. T says:

    I have watched the show twice and I can say that I am not impressed. Gloria hat’s off to you for not letting the other ladies get to you or taint your blessing. I am glad that you won’t be doing a second season of the show, because honestly people may start to believe that you are just like them. Be careful with the company you keep and whom you %)~_*#~&!*~^&&& ociate with! Good luck with all that you do and congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

  37. REDA says:

    I watch the show in total amazement because it seems as though it was misleading…I thought that the show would be about basketball wives showing the world how things are behind the scences(positive)…All I’ve been seeing are cackeling hins with DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA…Is this what series are crack up to be…Where is the peace and civilization. All the women on the show do is gossip, back stab, drink, and their most favorite involves Drama…I see money doesn’t increase intelligence and maturity…Who care if Gloria’s sister slept with a married man, she will reap what she sowed…Majority of women see NBA, NFL,Entertainers, etc… as meal tickets…More money more arrogance….The show is not worth a second season, of course to the million viewers who love drama…I agree with Gloria, the women on the show seem more bitter than anything else…Wow the show should have been called the Ex Basketball Bitter Wives, Girlfriends, and Groupies…(With Drama)Bitter Ex girlfriends with money playing dress up….

  38. Maliyah says:

    Mad respect to Gloria! Keep up the good work ma’ma and remember to always put family first! Good Luck with Everything!

  39. Gloria raises a good point says:

    I understand exactly what she means when says the show ‘is not a good look’. the women really DO all look bitter, selfish, materialistic (ESPECIALLY materialistic) and lacking morals. Honestly, when they ENCOURAGED Jennifer to cheat on her husband, that was when you really realized the level class you were dealing with here. Not to mention Royce is like 16 years old in maturity.

    It’s pretty obvious Shaunie was trying to create a drama filled show. If she wasn’t, there is no way Evelyn would be on the show-she is nobody’s wife. Im not even sure how committed her relationship was to Antoine Walker…it’s possible she was just a 10 yr. long on/off relationship.

    It would have been better for these women’s reputations had the show focused more on women like Gloria, charity, the issues real WIVES face like seeing off the husband on a road trip, organizing events, and yes touched on the insecurities of that life. But wallowing all the time in how men are dogs just seems crazy, because the ONLY reason we know these women is because of these men.

  40. cream806 says:

    I like Gloria….she is real an the other (_&!&#&+&_&+!((&! es are just haters….Gloria got on Ryoce’s tail…hahaha…. Now the crazy white girl needs to get a life..an none of them are even married to a basketball player….dating one is not a wife….now the one that is having problems with her husband…wake up… no man wants a women who hangs out with hoes on a daily…plus if you not given him none…she better watch Ryoce cuz she looked like she will give it to him….an Miss Drunk all the time…that’s why she single too..just a bunch of haters…mad cuz Gloria has a good man, family, an love in her home…

  41. SANDY says:

    LISTEN I AM GOING TO USE ALL CAPS SO U KNOW.
    GLORIA I DONT THINK IT WAS WOMANLY OF YOU TO GO AFTER ROYCE. YOU SHOULD STAY ON POINT WITH YOURSELF AN YOUR LIFE. DONT GIVE INTO THE BULL. YOUR SISTER HAS HER LIFE AN HER BIZZ. YOU HAVE YOURS. EVELYN IS NOT THE PERSON TO TALK WHEN SHE HAS PATCH WORK TO DO IN HER LIFE. THE OTHER CHICK THAT IS MARRIED JESSICA OR JENNIFER SHE IS A FIRE STARTER BUT SHE NEED TO LOOK HOME BOUND CUZ HER CRAPPY SCRAPPY FAKE MARRIAGE IS ABOUT TO BLOW UP IN HER FACE.HER HUSBAND LAUGHS IN HER FACE,HE CHECKED OUT ON HER A WHILE AGO AN SHE KNOWS THAT AN IT HURTS. ALL SHE HAS TO DO IS CHECK HERSELF AN LOVE HERSELF NOT THE FAKE SH*T. THEY PIGGY BACK THE SHOW TO KEEP THE CAMS ON THEM BUT THEY NEED TO CHECK THEIR BAGS CUZ THEIR AZZS R LITE REALLY. NOW YOU ARE NOT PERFECT AN THEY LOOK FOR YOUR FLAWS, AND YOU SHOULD REMEMBER YOU CAME FROM SOME WHERE SOME PLACE A BEGINNING TO NOW SO YOU DONT KNOW TO JUDGE ROYCE GOOD OR BAD. OK. DONT BE LIKE THAT YOU CAN BE AN EXAMPLE OR NOT OR JUST DO YOU BUT DONT SPEAK LIKE THAT ON OTHER FOR NO REASON YOU TWO COULD HAVE BEEN GOOD FRIENDS OR NOT BUT THAT WAS A BAD BEGINNING JUDGING HER.

    the only people keeping it real on this show is royce and shaunie!!!!!!!!!!! the other women are full of ^^)@*)~^&*~@#^_@

  43. Ashley says:

    Everyone keeps talking about how shes stuck up and thinks her life is perfect. How did you form that opinion from the episodes and this blog? All she’s saying is that she’s comfortable in the way her relationship is and she’s not going to dwell on what other basketball players do. Its not just basketball players that cheat. Men Cheat. Women Cheat. Any person can cheat so just because you are a basketball wife does not make you any special. That is all she is trying to say. As far as her not being married, So damn what! She has two kids because they are twins, ##*!*$##^)^_^(# HOLES…like be serious. And no one knows the actual history of this couple so no one can judge why they didnt get married then have children. Everyone doesnt want to go that route. And as far as the other women are concerned, Evelyn was with her “fiance” for 10 years and got NOTHING!! So instead of her trying to throw “cheating” in Gloria’s face, her and the other women should tell what they went through and what they did wrong in their relationships. Yes, their men cheated on them, but they also allowed it. If anyone allows their significant other to cheat on them, especially when they have no real commitment, its going to continue. Therefore, Evelyn Jennifer Shaunie etc. should have just minded their own business and let Gloria live how she wanted to live. If her husband was to cheat, at least he knows of the consequences. Shaunie Evelyn and Jennifer stayed with their husbands and continuously allowed themselves to be hurt, they cant just blame the groupies and their men. They need to blame themselves.

  44. Lmar says:

    Gloria’s no better than the other ladies.She knows that he could/might be cheating,but I think that she try not to think about it.I mean,if her sister could do what she did then surely she knows that it could happen to her.Is her man really that strong? I’m sure she questions herself.As for me why the long wait to walk down the aisle if its all good?

  45. millie says:

    when this show is over everyone needs to go back to their lives no SECOND SEASON THIS IJUST ANOTHER BAD PORTRAYAL OF WOMEN. TELL THE PRODUCERS TO SHOW WHATS REALLY GOOD BECAUSE THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS SOME ATHLETES CHEAT THAT AINT NOTHING NEW

  46. Melissa says:

    First off I’am a big fan of basketball wives but I just can’t stomach Gloria she thinks her +~!%*@~$##!_+*&) don’t stink and I got a problem with that!!!!!!!!!!!!! so in my opinion they need to kick that little twit off the show for good!!big up to the rest of the ladies stay strong and keep ya head up!!!!!! peace&love!!

  47. Jenna says:

    Gloria, keep your head up girl. You have more going for you then any of these other chicks as far as I can see. You boys are gorgeous and your man is a good guy. Good luck to ya girl! Go Magic!

  48. Saiwha says:

    Dirty, dirty, groupie &*^&++&^`#_%`%)*! just like her sister. Matt will toss Gloria to the side for a pretty girl and she’ll find another to sponge from, thats what the Galvan sisters do! DIRTY!!! D

    Dont let Gloria fool you…. low class &*^&++&^`#_%`%)*! just like the rest of them, just look at the big blue shoes she wore in the promo picture, that says it all NO CLASS!

    She learned from the town bike she calls her sister.. everybody has had a ride!

  49. Tre says:

    I truly believe that Gloria is the only woman on this show that has true class about herself and her relationship,Jennifer is so confused and Evelyn just doesn’t have a clue and as far as Evelyn is concerned LOST CAUSE

  50. redbearwoman says:

    Gloria: never change; don’t ever let the insinuations or their bitterness get to you. If your mate ever makes a mistake, forgive him and prove those old goat-women wrong! For a young woman, you pinpointed the drama roots and discerned very well the problems of each of the old biddies. Blessings and best wishes to you and your family. Amen to everything you said. Amen.

  51. jill riley says:

    I do not understand the purpose of this show. I really do think they are setting a bad example for young ladies. Gloria is the only one that is a real woman. The other ladies have some issues that they need to work on.Gloria I would keep loving yourself,your children and than you man. Keep your head up and find some really friends. To all the women you really need to get Jesus in your life because you will never be happy with out him.

  52. chanell says:

    Evelyn,
    I don’t like the fact that your always talking about class and being a mature women. First of all,just so you know,people who have class don’t go around talking about having it all the time! Like the song goes “Elegance is learned and not bought! So since your not will Antwoine Walker anymore,you cant even afford to buy it anymore. So that makes you a chicken head over 40 who needs to go back to the Bronx quickly. Oh, and stop hating on Royce, she’s a better woman than you, being a groupie and all! Shout out to Jen (whom I like now). I like the way you made friends with Royce, it keeps you grounded, and lose the cheating husband, you deserve much better than that, just stop being so snootie on T.V. you come off high post sometimes(in a bad way). Shout out to Royce, keeping doing your thing, I like the way you kicked !@^$$+_^!_$!(_$ in the ring!

  53. monica says:

    Why do they called this show the basketball wives,Gloria is not married to her baby daddy, Royce have a child for a b-ball player,Evelyn is divorce, Jennifer is on her way to the divorce court and Shaunice not even with her husband.
    As for Miss Suzie she is just a baby mama to her EX, so these ladies need to get the ~!_*#`+&__()%_)@ off there high horses and find a 9 to 5 and be independent.

  54. randilion says:

    Gloria is a sweet young lady .But a man was designed to wander.it’s a women right
    to either accept or not.So if she feels that matt won’t that’s great.The best thing for a women and man is to like ,love past the sex.Even a strong willed man or women can be broken.We all have deep seeded issues.From childhood to adulthood.Sex is just that Sex.
    it’s not love ( No Heart,.Sometimes Money)And it’s what makes lives messy.Go back the garden of eden,was it the tree of knowledge or sex?Couples don’t break up because of the tree of knowledge.They break up because of sex with other people.And most wives
    no matter who they are married to,don’t want to have sex as much a man.Unless she’s a PORN star.or a battery pack

  55. randilion says:

    WHO in the real world stays engaged for TEN years?A real women in love would have made him committ.Haven’t heard one word about LOVE.THEY had the same hope and dream and most girls.Of either marrying rich and being rich.What is the back ground of those women.And how many of them were ceo’s or exec’s?Are they any college
    degrees among them.If not MONEY AND FAME DIGGERS.

  56. Dutches says:

    Gloria, )!*_*#)#@$@)@^@%# please you are not the %“*%_*!)!)%&#+# You are just another BABY MOMMA, I would be surprised if this wedding actually takes place. You think you are better than everybody else HOE please. All you done was some suck #_%`&%~%&$`**$%~ and balls just like the other groupie )!*_*#)#@$@)@^@%# es, and you and your sisters are groupie _@+(`$(_@^__^(& hoes. Funny you are both dating basketball players…can we say MEAL TICKET! Dirty _@+(`$(_@^__^(& welfare hoes!

  57. Norma says:

    Shawnee is obviously a very intelligent woman to start this show and stay away from it. All the girls are cool and down to earch EVELYN on the other hand….she looks like a man, she’s a hypocrite and gives herself way toooooooooooooo much credit.

  58. Donna says:

    Well I can see by reading these other comments I am not alone. Evelyn…get a life. You come off like a very bitter and unhappy person. You are always talking like you are above everyone else and holier then though. You bad mouth …either Gloria or Royce first chance you get or with some smirk.
    I won’t even comment on the others except Gloria who is the only one with any smarts. She knows exactly who she married and his profession, but unlike these other women she doesn’t go looking for problems of mistrust while her man is away. Haven’t you heard of the old saying..”What you don’t know…won’t hurt ya”…well you should try it sometime and the rest of you stop looking for things to make your life more miserable.
    As far as Royce…you will probably stab her in the back…soon. Look at this last episode…she was trying to do something good with the homeless and yet still you bad mouth her or become so critical of her.
    Shawnee…try next time with some woman that have brains, heart and aren’t so shallow. I surely won’t watch next season…if they come back. That is for sure. But nice try Shawnee.

  59. TheFly_1 says:

  61. Tasha says:

    something about her…that does not click….

  62. Kenk says:

    I don’t know why this show is called Basketball wives, with the exception of Jennifer who is on her way to a divorce and Gloria who is the only one with class, integrity and will be married soon they’re all just baby mama’s. And you really want me to feel bad for them becuase they were cheated on, they knew what they were getting in to, they did it for the money and sold their soul to the devil now they have to sleep in the bed they made while they try to buy some new Gucci shoes…….and Royce she was a groupie, why would they have her on the show, I’m so disappointed in Shaunie for even putting this show together, the truth needs no explanation. It’s casting a real bad light on these women.

  63. Hello says:

    I feel you.My man is dark skinned with CLEAR SKIN.Might not have millions still a good provider.I was gonna pick him over the lightskin guy i was dating with all those red pimples on his face.GROSS.Now that was trash.

  64. Figaro says:

    She is truly beautiful and a class act. I hope all black women take a serious lesson from her on how not to let skanks break up your marriage

  65. Caren says:

    Gloria says she’s not naive but I beg to differ. In my opinion any woman who believes that her man will never succomb to cheating is being very naive. Any man can cheat, not saying all will or that all do, but it is good for a womans heart to leave room for that maybe he will do something. Her biggest mistake was having two kids with a man who hasn’t married her yet, so many people think it’s okay to just be a baby momma, and it’s not, it’s a disgrace. I do not know if Gloria is a real woman but I do know that there are a million and ten women out there with a tighter body than hers that would do Matt some serious damage so instead of her living in this lala world about him being faithful she need to tighten that +_`^$`~#`)`^&+# up, get some posture practice and show Matt that there isn’t anything out there better than what she’s got. I can’t even understand Evelyn or Jenifer or Susie for that matter. Evelyn isn’t much of anything, she was with a guy for ten years who she was only dating and he was cheating on her left and right, she had no children with this man, so in the end who was the dummy ? She looks like the fool for not putting it on him good enough for him to marry her +_`^$`~#`)`^&+# and he looks like the man for being able to string the broad along that damn long. These women are like rats who had a taste of money.

  66. diva says:

    i think gloria should be replaced for next season. Shes a waste of space on the show and shes two faced.

  67. diva says:

    Jens husband is not cute enough to treat her bad…really. Suzie is the bomb, a tru friend.

  68. LuvleeDay says:

    Wow…this is pretty funny. These women are all hot messes and it’s fun to watch- so true. But it is better to be real and know who you are dealing with than to be a complete phony like Gloria. Real? Classy? LMFAO. Gloria and her sister are KNOWN groupies. Not only was Gloria the jump off for NBA player Baron Davis PRIOR to bedding another player (Matt), but her sister is also a serial NBA gold digger. Back in 2007 Gloria MENDOZA Govan was arrested for taking money for altering grades. Her $+())#`&~*%*$_$&^ ish sister’s texts back and forth to Shaq (dirty, hotel rooms, you know) while he was married and while she was “engaged” to ball player Gilbert Arenas, were published for everyone to see…remember that this is Gloria’s “role model”. Yea- you two are just alike: Unwed baby mamas giving it up to whatever NBA player that will take you. And there most definitely has been rumblings about Matt’s fidelity. He’s a ball player…hardly a shocking revelation. Being a criminal, liar, serial athlete dating, unwed baby mama is FAR from admirable as so many others hysterically wrote on here. Worst of all those things is being a true hypocrite. Those women should be afraid to be seen with the likes of Gloria and her sister…not the other way around. I like my crazy nice and exposed- like Evelyn, Royce and Suzie…not hidden under a veil of straight up phony to strike when you least expect it. Jennifer and Shaunie AT LEAST got those UGLY ball players to put a ring on it. People are so gullible when it comes to falling for someone’s “good girl” act. Sheesh. I love reality TV drama…that’s why we “watch and discuss”. But trying to be holier than thou on a show like this is just setting yourself up to be exposed. You and your husband were not astute enough to realize what you were signing up for? Even when the wife of the man your sister cheated with is asking you to do said TV show? If they are that stupid then they have MUCH larger problems than this show.

  69. Saiwha says:

    Tisk… tisk… tisk…Gloria and her sister. Both low as low get’s and both REALLY KNOWN for what they are and do! Gloria, is Matt your first ball player, HA you are not fooling anybody no, no! You hate on Royce but you… oh my! The only difference between you and Royce is that you are not cute enough to be a dancer, you are just a “regular” groupie right? Audience, please dont be fooled by Gloria, see how ugly both she and her sister are. UGLY GIRLS inside and out!

  70. cali love says:

    Gloria please keep ur mouth shut ur an idiot on this show….u talk so much trash about the other ladies but ur worse because RODEL MODEL IS UR SISTER!!!!! are u for real…..the BIGGEST KNOWN `&*()(+#*!`_@!_^!

  71. Tonie says:

    Gloria is a blind !(&@#~$`~#^^^*& `%@!%%#&#~%*$&(#* her man is a cheat!

  72. Hmm says:

    The only difference between Gloria and the other women is time. I bet Suzie and Evelyn both thought the same things when they got with their men and were probably spouting the same nonsense. Check back in a year and see if she’s saying the same thing.

  73. Tina Wood-Harris says:

    Gloria,

    “Pride is before a crash.” I believe that your appearance of being happily in love with your babies father is a front. In addition, it is “okay” to have a relationship with another woman who’s baby father is a friend with your fiance. I think your fiance does not want you around Royce because he suspects there are some things that her baby father has shared with her. Additionally, I think that is a measure of control, when another person dictates to you who should ^@#`(&#%&$&`!%@ ociate with or with not. Gloria, stopped being a “know it all.” You are only twenty-four, you have life to experience. There are going to be situations where you have to “sleep with the enemy.” You can’t judge someone based on his or her decisions in life.
    You say you are envolved with charity work, there are going to be situations where you interact with all types of people; ones that you dislike and like. You can not just push them away. Additionally, the woman on the show are not jealous of you, they have just been in the same position that you are in; engaged or married to a basketball player, and experiencing all the challenges that comes with that lifestyle.
    Gloria stop being so judgemental! If you haven’t been to college, go and get a degree. If you have a degree, pursue another degree. Don’t think because you have children that your fiance is going to be faithful. Start focusing on “you” and not groupies or other woman. You say that you are secure in your relationship, but you are not not. When people like “Royce” comes around, you are threaten; which is contrary for a person that is so secure. You have to much pride Gloria, and the bible states that pride is before a crash, and that is the path that you will receive if you don’t open your eyes up and face reality. I hope your fiance or future husband is as happy as you say he is. But what going on in the dark shall come to light. I hope all work out with you Gloria, but thinking people are jealous of you is immature. Good luck.

  74. cremerldy says:

    UMMM, Gloria you’re sister would be indeed the WRONG circle. You think those woman are bad, but your sister slept with a married man. So that makes me wonder about you.

  75. tinikia says:

    Oh man Gloria, I read your interveiw after my first statement and I think you just keep it all the way real and I love you for that. You don’t have to do anything to make those other women hate you and you can’t make them love you. They hate you because they want to be in your position. That is a circle I wouldn’t want to be a part of. I totally understand why Matt said he is digusted by the show. It shows how sick those women are to go to the extent to say they have evidence of Matt cheating and he’s not faithful. They need to look up life and get one. It keeps playing over and over in my head when they come to dinner at your house and Matt mentions to them not to corrupt Gloria. Little does he know that you’re smarter than all of them even with all of their years on you. They are dummies and very jealous women. Goodluck, Goodluck and Goodluck again with your wedding. Don’t invite those hating ugly chicken heads either, Suzie the vampire and Evelyn the transgender (lol).

  76. Steve says:

    Gloria’s a two-faced ****!

  77. maggpie says:

    This youngin’ shows her immaturity simply be acting like she knows it ALL. I don’t understand why she is even on this show being that she is such a hater.

  80. EastBayGal says:

    FYI: Just so you know your fiancee “Matt” was running the streets ALL over the East Bay a few years back when you were prego…he has been anything but faithful to you. Might want to ask him about latinas in California beauty pagents.

  81. angel says:

    I think gloria is a sad case, she has too much pride to admit that she has fears and concerns where her fiance is concerned and i feel sorry for her. Every one including myself knows he has not always been faithful to her.
    In the last episode watching her go off on royce was really pathetic. Putting her down and stating that she will never be in their shoes as a wife. Gloria please somebody check this broad she is not a wife she is a baby mama a live in babysitter so to speak should have gotten the ring and the wedding first silly girl, hollah at Royce in August when you really are a wifey and not just a another Oakland projects gone lottery case with a baby by a so called basketball star. Oh and FYI he isnt that good lol word is he wont be around long,

    I just think she trys to play like she is so hard and those of us who know her baby daddy personally…..know that she is putting on a super front. Enough said!!!

    I don’t see how gloria is not the bad person in this whole thing she is coming in with blinders judging royce for being a cheerleader so what? Gloria comes into this as im a good mom and wife damnit ya but your sister did or did not have an affair is that how your parents raised you? Then you say blood is blood but daym girl you know she was in the wrong…and you your man and royce’s man are on the same team you could like you say be cordial get off your high horse honey karma is a !#&^%`+~@**!+^!@* and you are a perfect candidate to be bit on the !+)_“#)~!&))$% And if you don’t want nobody to talk or boast opinions don’t put it out there.

  88. rere3 says:

    It’s very sad but i have to agree with Caren. Although Gloria wants to believe that her man is faithful, i think she knows deep down that that is a hard pill to swallow and the REAL reason for her dislike toward Royce is because Royce knows her man is a cheat. (hell royce may have slept with him too…imjustsayin). No one is above cheating especially an attractive rich athelete who gets p***y tossed in his face on a daily basis. Just because you have his children doesnt make him faithful by any means. And yeah all these women are very bitter on the show, but guess what, this may be YOU in 10 years. You may be in Shaunie’s exact shoes, 5 kids later dealing with ~_!%$)_#(+*%()_$~ You are young so before you judge try and understand. P.S. I think you should find a new role model because your sister is a disgrace to women everywhere and should be absolutely ashamed of herself.

  89. Te Te says:

    GLORIA, I BEG YOU TO LEAVE THIS SHOW.THE SEASON FINALE AS COME AND YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS SHOW. BECAUSE THIS SHOW IS SO GHETTO AND YOU LOOK OUT OF PLACE. ROYCE, I BEG YOU TO OPEN YOUR EYES BECAUSE YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY WOLVES IN SHEEP CLOTHING. JENNIFER, “DO NOT LEAVE YOUR HUSBAND BECAUSE WHEN A WOMAN IS TELLING YOU TO CHEAT ON YOUR HUSBAND OR TO LEAVE HIM THAT MEANS SHE WANT HIM OR SHE ENVY’S WHAT YOU GUYS HAVE AND THATS MARRIAGE. JENNIFER, WISE WORDS FROM WYCLEF JEAN TWO WRONGS DON’T MAKE IT RIGHTS!

  90. CMOB says:

    Gloria, i wish u & your marriage the best. But i must say you are a mess. The way you just off top had attitude with Royce shows that you are not as together as you claim. You started out talking to her but yet talking about her behind her back. You are a 2-faced chick. I can see you not talking about your sister to anyone, but at the end of the day wrong is wrong. Just know what your sister was suppose to have done could happen to you one day. Evelyn you are one bitter chick and there is no more to say about you. Jennifer & Shaunie i like you two the most and really yall are the only two that should be on the show.

  91. Be An Individual says:

    I have to say that this show is very amusing, but Gloria…honey… seriously your attitude is aweful. To judge Royce so harshly as if she is beneath you because you have a ring on your finger is disgusting. That ring is a promise that he may marry you. Remember some people break their promises. With that being stated… Then you’ll just be a baby momma like the rest of them. Sleeping with a ball player doesn’t make you royal or give you any kind of class or a real rank in high society. As a matter of fact at the end of the day all of you “wives” are no bodies to the rest of society. Just pieces on the arms of sports players. Wow i hope that isn’t considered a milestone or an accomplishment. SMH. At 23 you should be discovering yourself and traveling the world, not worrying about all the other BS that comes with living in that world.

  92. Flo Evans says:

    For someone to call someone a groupie and disrespect other women because of who they are is just out right disgusting, you may need to look at yourself, your not married, so you’re not even a basketball wife. And just like Royce you have a children by a basketball player. Your only a fiance’, come on give me a break. You’ve basically did the same thing except you weren’t a dancer. Then what are you? What do you do besides live with a basketball player? Stop putting your nose up so high, you may drown in bad rain storm….

  93. carol says:

    To tell the truth Gloria you and jen was the only two that had any class on the show shanie always seem to want to about shaq and your sister ask her *@@^$+@()))_((( about her and her personal trainer she slept with during relationship with shaq

  94. Helen says:

    Why is this show called basketball wives only one of them are married Jennifer, who is a idiot for staying with that arrogant UGLY man Eric williams Jen take the $$$ you deserve for being able to stomach this Ugly man and go get yourself a man that deserves you, Gloria
    do you honestly believe Matt is faithful on the road if so I have some swamp land to sell you.royce grow up and be a mother to your son not DANCER.

  95. Suzie says:

    Gloria is no better than anyone else. If she was so much better and proper than the rest, why have two kids before getting married? It seems like there was some insecurity on her part to up and get pregnant without getting married. It’s just a sure way to get security (CASH) for herself/kids at least till the kids turn 18. …And how dare Matt bash the show. If he was so into Gloria, why hasn’t he married her already – why wait till August? If he was so proper himself and hold himself and Gloria in such high regards (better than the show), then why didn’t he marry her a while ago and why was she on the show? Seems like to me Gloria has a hidden agenda. Matt and Gloria are both judgmental and if Gloria really liked Royce, she would still be her friend, regardless. She wanted to lift herself up by talking down about Royce whom she is not better than. Matt and Gloria are nothing but hypocrites.

    Oh my! Girlfriend PLLEASE!!! I believe u came on the show to prove to the world that u r better than the others. Sorry-mission not accomplished. All u showed me was a bitter, insecure, immature lil girl. I am not impressed. U need to b concerned with ur fam and not b so concerned with what everyone else is doing or not doing. At the end of the day u r responsible for urself not Suzie Q or Joe Bob. Remember that-u jus might get somewhere then. Time to put on the big girl panties!

    Gloria, i think you just came off as a cold hearted `%_%`*)~$)**&#$#^ with the situation with Shaunie, i understand your loyalty to your sister, but her being a friend, you should have felt for her, and been able feel and understand her pain even though your loyalty was to your sister. If you think you were portrayed as being shy and in the background, and i saw you to be a `%_%`*)~$)**&#$#^ i would hate to see you at your full potential. Reflect of this, years back Shaunie and Shaq were right here you and Matt are now, so what happens when in 5 years or 10 years (since yours so pround to be 10 years younger and everyone is just jealous and bitter of your relationship with Matt) when you are in the exact same position that Shaunie is in now, and what if the other woman is indeed the sister of a friend? What would you say then? Just how its her today, it could be you tomorrow……..don’t be a `%_%`*)~$)**&#$#^ Learn how to be a “real” friend!

    Gloria,

    I am sooo ashamed at your comments. This interview proves how weak and dependent you are on Matt. You are all over the damn place, for 1. An entreprenuer is NOT a stay at home mom, they are someone out there getting ^!!)$+$&%@&`+~~` done on many different levels. 2. You say that basketball wives/girlfriends are a great support system to one another, BUT yet you won’t even ++&@#&#@*&*^~_+ ociate with Royce because she has a child by your boyfriend’s teammate, WTF is that!! That is some straight weak minded ^!!)$+$&%@&`+~~` right there!! Does that mean you won’t befriend any of your boyfriend’s teammates women just because!! You nor Matt should be concerned with ANY of their personal business!! 3. PLEASE PLEASE stop boasting on being 10 years younger than the other ladies when TRUTH is you look every bit of 10 years OLDER than all of them! Real talk!! 4. Never uphold ANYONE in wrong doing! You front like you defend your sister just because she is your sister, TRUTH is you defend her because there is some truth to the ^!!)$+$&%@&`+~~` and you know it! Guilt does that to a person…makes them defensive and agitated! Lastly, you are in no different situation than the other ladies. They were all in your spot years ago when their exes first got into the league and I can bet money that no one could tell them that their “fairytale” wouldn’t last. Trapping a man with kids will NOT keep him! AND you need to get familiar with that letter I and not HIS or MATT’s! You will truly lose yourself if you don’t! Sadly if you don’t, you will be that “Evelyn” or “Suzi” in 5-10 years!!

  102. Tasha says:

    I feel u gloria 100 percent!!!!!! I like how u keep it real! I understand the shaunie thing too. Your loyalty doesn’t lay with your so called “friends”, but with your family! However, I don’t think it is right for your sister to sleep with a married man (if she did) but it is not your fault for that, you are not your sister’s keeper. How she chooses to live her life is between her in God you only need to let her know that you are here for her if ever she needs you. I feel like the show put a negative view on the basketball “wives”. It showed the “wives” getting into drama, being #~+^!!~_^)++@*)%) es to each other, not a good look at all. You all know exactly how it is being in a relationship with someone that is famous so you should help uplift one another. It is hard being a woman in a relationship we all have to deal with women trying to get with our men, but I believe that if you keep a happy home and bed your man doesnt have to creep around. How much you put in is how much you get out of it!! And when your man was creeping it wasn’t the first time that they did it. A man can only do what you allow them to do. If he cheats and there are no consequences then what makes you think that want do it again. Gloria I wish you the best in your relationship, with your family, and with your career goals!!!!

  103. naomi says:

    i agree with you gloria. don’t let these bitter women phase you. there are good men out there!

    and i applaud you for not doing another season of that sh*tty show.

    lots of love <3

  104. purpleman says:

    Gloria,
    you made the right decisions and moves. The problem is that you didn’t betray your sister with them, and you were cold with it. I watched the shows and I always like how you stood your ground with all of them. The main problems with the ladies on the show and viewers is that you never said you knew or did not know and right you were to do that . @#$% them all and good luck.

  105. s.marie says:

    So proud of you and that u stood on your own two feet. I dont know if the ladies gave you a chance. I think once they started to like royce, they had to gang up on you. As far as your sister, I am big on family, but i have to tell you right is right and wrong is wrong. If a family member does something wrong, I will call them on that, they shouldnt be given a pass, or not held accountable for what they did because they are family. I suport them as my family. Just something to think about. I am glad to see you continue with your life. I think VH1 should follow your family and what you all are involved in…I would watch it. the housewives was a little lame, no substance. Keep following your own path and dont trash anyone in public, like the other housewives.

  106. 4loves says:

    Gloria I think you are a Bit** and your sister is an Hoe and dont know one care about your dame wedding I hope some one trashs it you should of never did that show U pretty much threw matt career down the down I not going to watch an team he old I hope one of your friend sleep with matt so you can see how it feels Lmao

  107. Missy A says:

    She is the biggest SNAKE on the show!!! The fact that she wasnt even at the reunion says it all!!

    People who are scared or have s**t to hide always run and hide!!!

  108. winnie says:

    Gloria even if something is not right with you and your husband, that is you all’s business!! Be like the other wives do not share or air your dirty laundry,feelings, problems(especially with your husband. You seem to have a good husband. At least he is not humiliating you on television!!! Girl, stick with the other basketball wives & stay private!!!!

  109. winnie says:

    I think the show should be called basketball ex’s!!! None of them are still married or in most cases have been married to a basketball player. Evelyn, dumped,Susie-ddumped,Shaunie-divorced!! Come on re-name the next season!! Shaunie show the true reason behind the show, “no drama”, yeah right it shows how cold,heartless,vindictive,backstabbing, and two-faced, want to be hood-classy at the same time bi@#@#’s yall want to be!! B@##@ change the show !!!!

  110. Mrs. Cynthia Willis says:

    Gloria. You came off extremely judgemental. Well you and Matt have 2 kids and you are still a fiance?! Are you kidding me. It appears to me that you were almost not A WIFEY with a ring like you told Royce. I didn’t like how 2 faced you were. Tell your husband to lay off of Shaunie! Her settlement from Shaq will be more than what he makes riding that bench… In thae famous words of SHAUNIE! (Matt who?) Face it you fiances days are numbered on the court. No one knows him.

  111. Sonya Bennett says:

    Gloria,you was the realiest one on the show,none of them are Basketball wives,Eric don’t want Jennifer and she knows it,all I gotta say is you kept it real and don’t change for no one!!!they couldn’t stand that you was strong minded and you wouldn’t fall for there negativity!!!all of them are miserable ole’ women,just keep being true to yourself and your future husband,and God will deal with the rest!!!

  112. THEREALISTWOMANEVA says:

    OKAY! NOW LET’S REALLY CUT THE BULL! DON’T GET ME WRONG, GLORIA, YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO RIDE OR DIE WITH MATT. BUT SERIOUSLY BOO LET’S KEEP THIS REAL! IF HE IS GOING TO CHEAT THEN HE’S GOING TO CHEAT, WITH OR WITHOUT YOU, THERE IS A REALLY BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STANDING BY YOUR MAN AND BEING PURE IGNORANT! FOR YOU TO TO SOCIALIZE WITH SOMEONE BECAUSE OF HIM SAYS ALOT ABOUT YOUR CHARACTERE AS A WOMAN. I AM A MARRIED WOMAN AND TRUST AND BELIEVE MY HUSBAND DOES NOT HAVE A SAY SO ABOUT WHO I HANG WITH. HE CAN GIVE ME HIS THOUGHTS…BUT THAT’S THAT! NOW YOU SIT HERE AN TALK ABOUT THE OTHER WIVE’S AS IF THEY ARE NOTHING MORE THAT PURE TRASH. BUT LOOK AT YOUR SISTER BOO-BOO. SHE’S DOING THE SAME THING TO ANOTHER WOMAN THAT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU. YEAH,YEAH,YEAH I KNOW YOU SAY “OH I TRUST MATT”, BUT “(%&)##!`(&)(_() PLZ! WHEN HE IS OUT ON THE ROAD AND YOUR AT HOME, THE KIDS ARE IN THE BED, AND YOUR ALONE YOU CAN’T SAY THAT YOUR MIND DOESN’T WONDER OFF AND QUESTION WHAT HE’S DOING AND WHO’S HE DOING IT WITH. EVERY WOMAN DOES IT WHETHER THEY HAVE MONEY OR NOT. SO WHEN YOU REALLY DO GET THROUGH WITH THE BS….BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF HONEY!

  113. SunnyD says:

    Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, some of the comments and initial reactions that I’ve seen, have been arrogant. Once Royce stated that the girls were jealous of you because your mixed is completly racist, and it seems that you had a problem with the other girls, who were black. Your attitude was disguisting on the show, and your a dime a dozen. You have some really important lessons to learn.Also, domestic violence is no joke, you were laughing it off, but it wasn’t like you were having a loud party you were having a fight… big difference. You are in denial about, your looks, your identity , and your relationship. Get a grip, you are not cute.
