As if we really need another version of “Basketball Wives” right? Laura Govan, sister to Gloria Govan, ex-girlfriend of baller Gilbert Arenas and Shaq’s alleged mistress, sat down with the The Washington Post and opened up about the new reality show, “Basketball Wives LA”.
If you haven’t already heard, this new series will feature basketball girlfriends, wives and exes living on the west coast- a spinoff to the original “Basketball Wives” series that takes place in Miami.
Considering Laura’s highly publicized relationship with Gilbert Arenas, it was only right that she be a part of the “Basketball Wives LA” cast. The only problem is that Gilbert Arenas is actually trying to block Laura’s appearance on the show, and has threatened to sue the production company to stop the show from airing. When asked about this situation, Laura replied that she was not worried and stated, “Whatever happens, happens.”
She also went on to say, “I just wanted to showcase a new chapter in my life. A fresh start, a fresh outlook on life as a single mom.”
Laura gave birth to the couple’s fourth child a few weeks ago and says that she and Gilbert “do not communicate but are working in the best interests of their children.”
Executive producer, Noah Pollack, loves the ongoing, made for TV drama, and called Laura a “spark plug”. He stated, “The fact that they (Laura and Gloria) are sisters is a great, great story for us.”
The show is set to air in late August.
