Gloria has been vocal about leaving the show in the past (I'd always just assumed she wasn't asked to return, which could very well be the case), and it was rumored that VH1 was none to pleased when she eloped mid-season of BBW LA with NBA player Matt Barnes and did not invite camera crews to capture the nuptials. In your face, VH1!
Quick question for y'all…once you've called off your engagement, how many wedding ceremonies should you have to convince everyone that your marriage is legit? If you are Basketball Wives: LA'sGloria Govan, the answer is two…one in Vegas, and one in Santa Barbara.
What? You weren't invited to either? Say it ain't so! Oh well…you may just get to watch the most recent nuptials on television!
Uh oh. I hope this isn't a case of biting the hand that feeds you! Gloria Govan of Basketball Wives: LA hasn't exactly been loyal to the network who made her a reality star, and VH1 needs to take note about what the reality star is saying in the media. She's got way more important projects in the works, yall like that web series…!!
On season two of the show, Gloria pretty much alienated all of her cast mates except for sister Laura, and it's no secret that her husband Matt Barnes isn't a fan of his wife's involvement with the reality series. And speaking of her husband, Gloria didn't even inform the network when she eloped with Matt while the season was filming. That certainly couldn't have gone over well!
Can I get a slow clap for Shaunie O'Neal? She said she was going to clean up the violence and drama on Basketball Wives, and by God, she's going to deliver. Oh wait. Nevermind. Instead, Ms. Nostrils O'Neal fired the calm ladies and kept her violent, bullying friends for the fifth season. They say they want to redeem themselves. I think Kenya Bell needs to duck!
That's right, folks! Both wine bottle tossing, table jumping Evelyn Lozada and purse snatching, in-your-face screaming Tami Roman will be back for another round. Apparently, they've "grown" in light of recent circumstances and deserve a fifth second chance. Tami suffered a mild heart attack, so she has a new lease on life, while Evelyn had a short-lived marriage that ended in a head butt from Chad Johnson, so surely she's learned that violence isn't the answer. Right? Hello? Anyone believe that?
Last week, we reported on what a great weekMatt Barnes was having, given his secret wedding and the fact he got off with some minor traffic violations after being charged with felony resisting arrest. Well, Matt didn't necessarily handle that great week with class. Who's shocked?
The officer that arrested Matt had previously stopped the basketballer twice before, so clearly the pair had history. The cop even waited outside the restaurant where Matt was having dinner with Basketball Wives LA'sGloria Govan for hours to arrest NBA player on suspicion of driving with a suspended license (he wasn't). When Matt tried to hand his keys to Gloria, the officer charged him with felony resisting arrest. Hmm…something tells me there is more to the beef between these two that meets the eye!
Of course, perhaps the couple had enough of wedding planning the first go-round. After all, Gloria and Matt were engaged two years ago and called off the wedding right before their August nuptials. Maybe a small and spontaneous service at a Vegas chapel is exactly what these two needed.
We won't be seeing Matt Barnes on this season of Basketball Wives: L.A., but it isn't because the he and Gloria Govan are on the outs with one another. On the first season the couple certainly had their share of highs and lows, eventually calling off their engagement when they couldn't work out their differences.
Isn't it amazing what eight short months can do? Gloria and Matt have reunited…although she claims to have learned a lot about herself in their time apart. This time she'll be facing the craziness of the sophomore season without her man.
