Gloria Govan Recaps Basketball Wives L.A. Episode 4


Gloria Govan is one of the most recognizable faces on Basketball Wives L.A. thanks to her dramatic stint on the first season of the original Basketball Wives. Gloria has agreed to recap this season of Basketball Wives L.A. for the VH1 Blog and we couldn’t be happier to have her input on everything that goes down in front of and behind the camera. This week, Gloria talks about her coaching job, the new relationships that have been forming, and Jackie and Doug’s wedding.

A lot of people don’t know that I played basketball in high school and college. Coaching is something that is very new to me, but I really enjoy it. I’m really tough on my girls and although some will say that I’m the “female version of Bobby Knight,” we still have a lot of fun. Being a role model to these girls inspires me to be not only a better person but a better coach. Speaking of role models, having Matt and Doug come to help out at practice really meant a lot to both me and the team.

Seeing my sister going through everything that she has gone through and to finally be at a place of peace with herself and her situation is really nice. I’m really happy that my sister and Imani have become so close. Imani has been in Laura‘s situation before and really understands where Laura is coming from, and I feel like if anyone can be that shoulder for Laura to lean on it’s definitely Imani.

Meeting up with Suzie is always a blast, I think she is one of the only people that can understand the drama, stress, and frustration it takes to deal with so many different women and personalities on top of moving and being in a different city. Ugh. LOL.

Jackie’s 16th wedding is becoming a big production and it’s their first one in Vegas. I must say although planning a wedding every year sounds like a bit much, I like Jackie’s motto “if you’re always busy planning a wedding, you don’t have time to plan a divorce.” When Jackie invited us to go to her wedding in Las Vegas we (Matt and I) were honored, especially since it was supposed to be such an intimate wedding. Knowing that Jackie’s mom was sick and how much this meant to have her there is very touching.

Witnessing such a special moment that is especially rare is both inspirational and inspiring. Jackie and Doug’s love may be crazy, but it’s real and genuine.

Draya is still on uncertain territory. No one really knows what to do, or where to place her. To hear what Draya wants to do with her career is nice. But if booty shots aren’t necessary all the time, then maybe you should have a photo shoot with clothes on? Malaysia being there to see and support Draya is interesting, knowing that Malaysia has done music videos as well, I can see where Draya is hoping her alliance is going to come from.

But that still isn’t going to be enough to save her from missing Jackie’s wedding.

    So you go through the trouble of deleting my comment but make no edits to the poor writing i made fun of above (“Witnessing such a special moment that is especially rare is both inspirational and inspiring”).
