Gloria Govan got a collective “ho sit down” from everyone watching part 1 of the reunion special of Basketball Wives: LA on Monday night. The 26-year-old, who recently married her baller boo Matt Barnes, was exhibiting obvious delusions of grandeur when she told her cast mates during the special that she was the reason there’s a Los Angeles version of the show.
Most of us watching Monday night’s reunion saw Gloria’s claim for what it was (a shameless attempt at getting people interested in what she has to say – she’s about as interesting as drinking warm milk), but Evelyn Lozada still thought it necessary to clarify things, saying on Twitter:
“I just need to make something clear. It is because of Shaunie O’neal creating BBW (Basketball Wives) Miami, Shed Media & VH1 that there is a “SPIN-OFF” #CarryOn. I usually don’t comment and stay in my lane, but the truth is the truth. Let me continue enjoying my dinner. Thanks to my followers who stay updating me with everything.”
In response, Shaunie tweeted, “Thank u Boo! I’ve been telling myself 2 put the phone down #iwontaddresstrash lol.” Shaunie and Evelyn have never seen eye to eye with Gloria, who was on the original version of Basketball Wives (Miami) with the duo before Matt signed with a Los Angeles team. According to rumors, Gloria wasn’t missed when she relocated to be with her man because Shaunie wanted her gone anyway.
It’ll be interesting to see what grand proclamations Gloria makes (maybe she’ll take credit for the creation of electricity) on part 2 of the Basketball Wives: LA reunion special when it airs on Monday night on VH1.
