Fight Almost Break Out During The Filming Of “Basketball Wives”

Royce Reed had to hold Tami back from the newest cast member of the show!

During filming for the third season of “Basketball Wives” the ladies were enjoying a fun-filled day in Miami when things took a turn for the worse. Cast member Tami Roman unleashed her fury on the newest cast member, Juli Richmond, and things looked like they could’ve gotten physical.

Tami had to be physically held back from Juli, who is married to former NBA baller Mitch Richmond.

Last time a cat fight erupted on set is when Tami found out Evelyn Lozada had slept with her ex husband.

The word is still out why these two got into a heated argument.

Gilbert Arenas’ BabyMama Laura Govan Says That She Never Slept w/ Shaq & Shaunie Was Never Her BFF!

We’ve heard it all before, but apparently Laura Govan has decided now is the right time to try and set the record straight about rumors that she and Shaq were gettin’ it in behind her “friend” Shaunie O’Neal and her fiance Gilbert Arenas’ back.

In a new interview with Sister 2 Sister magazine Govan discusses her nine-year-relationship with Arenas, her master’s degree in psychology and her “REAL” reason for not joining the cast of “Basketball Wives”.

Laura Govan

Laura says that when Shaunie invited her on the show she recommended Gloria instead:

“I didn’t want to do it because I’ve never asked to be in the public eye,” explained Laura. “I’m educated. I want to make sure that my children have a role model in the sense of whatever that means to me. I want them to see that mommy is doing things other than being behind daddy and going to games and being cute.”

In the December issue of Sister 2 Sister, Laura denies the rumors of her and Shaq’s affair and she also blames Shaunie for continuing to feed the frenzy over the story which she alleges both couples knew to be false (Gilbert denied the rumor on Twitter) and explains why she never called Shaunie. If you’re a “Basketball Wives” watcher, you know Shaunie talking much yang yang about Laura never calling her to clear the air. She also says they were not the “besties” that Shaunie and the show made them out to be.

Last but not least… Laura defends herself, and baby sis Gloria, from this concept that most of us have of them as PROFESSIONAL GOLD DIGGERS.

“I always said I would never date an athlete, nor an entertainer ever. You know, because we grew up around it,” Laura said. “My family has always held their own and we were always taught to make it on our own, especially as women.”

If you’re wondering how they grew up around it — apparently Laura’s dad owned a jazz club — which is actually how good old Gilly won over her heart. Laura says the two of them met while she (a former basketball player and coach)was working at a Golden State Warriors basketball camp. She claims she tried to turn him down when he approached her:

“I was like, ‘Being an athlete doesn’t impress me.’ I said, ‘If you really want to go out with me, you’ll work for my family.’”

Her dad owned a jazz club and she promised him a date if he worked there.

“That weekend this boy was taking tickets at the door. People were like, ‘Aren’t you Gilbert Arenas?’” Laura was shocked to see him there. “And then he wouldn’t leave! He was filling salt and pepper shakers and pouring water.”

Although Laura thought he was cute, he had to prove that he was really interested.

“I was in a master’s/PHD program, so as I was finishing my master’s, he would come and sit in the parking lot and wait for me for three hours,” she revealed to S2S. “I thought, okay, you know what? He’s serious.”

After their first date, which included a movie and a game of tag in the parking lot, they were inseparable. “We were together every day since then. We were just kind of crazy about each other.”

And if you were wondering how exactly a woman dates a man for NINE years (yes, that beats La La’s seven!) Laura claims her relationship is strong and happy and they are still planning for more kids.

“People always ask us, ‘When are you getting married?’ When the time is right and when we’re ready,” Laura said.

SMH, we are SO CONFUSED about how the time isn’t ready yet when it’s been NINE years and THREE kids but whatever. You guys have to wait until the December issue comes out for Laura’s full response to the Shaq business.

In the same issue, Gloria “explains” why she postponed her wedding and discusses Matt’s arrest for suspected domestic violence.

Yo… Do y’all believe anything that comes out of these broads mouths??? Is it possible that Shaq REALLY didn’t chop Laura Govan down? And are you buying Laura’s sweet as pie stories about Gilbert Arenas when the man has PROVEN himself to be a damn fool in public on MULTIPLE occasions???
