Basketball Wives: LA‘s Laura Govan Reunites With Ex-Boyfriend Gilbert Arenas
Despite spending almost all of the current season of VH1‘s Basketball Wives: L.A. complaining about how she had to move into a tiny two-bedroom apartment after breaking up with Orlando Magic point guard Gilbert Arenas, 29, Laura Govan has announced that she is back with her boo because of love, not real estate.
“We are back together,” Laura said during her visit to The Autumn Joi Live Show with Famous Dave on EliteDCRadio. “We got black, ghetto…it’s crazy, dangerous in love…we got it all.”
The mother of four, with the 29-year-old basketball player, opened up about the perception people have of her being in her relationship just for the money. “I ain’t saying I’m a gold digger, but I ain’t messing with no broke n*gga,” she said on the radio show. “People need to understand that I paid my dues. I’ve been with this dude before he even had any money. I remember there was a time we were both out eating cheeseburgers and I had to pay. So don’t get it twisted, that lasted for a long time and I loved him then and I love him now but I’m not going to defend that. At the end of the day, even if I was with another type of athlete or whatever the case may be, I’m always going to be classified [as a gold digger] but who has four kids with somebody, been with them ten years…it is what it is and speaks for itself. I don’t have to justify who I am or what I am.”
Apparently this lady loves giving radio interviews. The almost “Basketball Wife,” also recently stopped by New York’s Power 105.1 to chat with The Breakfast Club, this time with her sister Gloria Govan, to once again discuss her relationship with Gilbert, her recent weight loss and to save face after being hit in the face by cast member Malaysia Pargo.
