BBWLA Star Laura Govan Speaks On Her Issues With Jackie Christie, Getting Her Daughter Involved & Calls Draya A “Slut Bucket”

As the drama continues to unfold on this season of Basketball Wives: L.A., cast member Laura Govan speaks to Juicy Magazine about why she treats Jackie Christie the way she does, getting Jackie’s daughter Chantel involved and the way minority women are being portrayed on television. Laura also calls Draya a “slut bucket”. Below are some highlights:

This season of BBW you have an agenda to get revenge with JACKIE CHRISTIE, why is this so important?

I wanted to mirror exactly how she treated me last year. For her to go back and forth with that shit was exhausting. I didn’t even tell my sister what I was doing until the end, and she was prying it out of me. I didn’t wanna hear any opinions, and I didn’t give a fuck. I knew how I was going to deal with it. Immature or not, I didn’t give a shit how the world seen it. I got my rocks off so I was good. It was a lot y’all didn’t get to see.

Do you think you crossed the line by bringing Jackie’s daughter, Chantel, into your it?

My initial plan for that was I just wanted [Jackie] to see us together. Chantel didn’t even have to open her mouth, I knew if Jackie just seen us together she was going to flip. When her daughter came to me, I was thinking, ‘Wait a minute I have my own plan, whats your plan?’ I was so confused. However when she started telling her story, I believed the daughter because she lived it, she told it. I’m listening to this little girl and although she’s an adult I’m like this is not cool. Everything changed. I was thinking here I am, a mother, a daughter. This ain’t right and then the shit changed for me.

There is an awkward vibe between you and Draya, what are your feelings about Draya and where does you’re issue with her stem from?

My focus wasn’t on nobody but Jackie. I could see everybody else for who they were. I didn’t like Draya [season 1] for scenes off camera, you guys couldn’t see. With Draya, I’m like, you’re still a slut bucket, but Draya is Draya. She does her thing. She’s like a blunt, you smoke it, you hit it, you pass it and then you toss it and then its a roach and you keep it moving. This year, she’s still the same person but she’s growing, taking ant steps, but she’s getting there. I don’t dislike Draya at all.

What do you say to critics that say reality television depicts minority women negatively?

If you look at TV and you think that I’m portraying who you are as a Black woman you have issues. Look at TV for what it is – entertainment. If you want to be entertained watch my show. If you want to watch a woman portraying Black women, watch Oprah, don’t watch me. If you wanna get some jokes and you wanna laugh and you wanna be like ‘What no she didn’t’, then that’s this is the place to be. I don’t like when people look at it for anything else.

Swizz Beatz’s Ex-Wife MaShonda Calls Out Alicia Keys For Adding Insult To Injury

Last week, I posted Alicia Key’s Jet Magazine cover along with some excerpts from her interview, where she spoke about the pre-marriage drama leading up to her highly publicized relationship with Swizz Beatz. In the interview, Alicia Keys said that she and Swizz Beatz did not get together until after he separated from his ex-wife MaShonda. The Harlem native defended her marriage to the music producer. “…[They] were apart for some time before we ever got together…that doesn’t matter to those who take pleasure in trying to knock others down…there’s no need to fight what’s not true,” said Alicia Keys.

Apparently, I was wrong when I thought that this chapter in Alicia and Swizz’s lives was closed. Just before the holidays when everybody should be spending quality time with their family, Alicia, Swizz and MaShonda are making headline in the blogosphere world. There are always two sides to every story and sometimes three. With that being said, MaShonda is giving her side again. She spoke to Global Grind to set the record straight.

On her initial reaction when she read Alicia’s JET Magazine interview: 

Not much surprises me anymore when it comes to this situation. I truly thought that everyone’s priority was the well-being of the children involved. I don’t see the sense in throwing oil on a fire, it just takes us back to point A. The Jet interview just added insult to injury. I can’t figure out how this makes us better. How is it a positive, humanitarian gesture? But artists must protect their reputation and I get that.

On if she felt like Alicia Keys’ JET Interview was an indirect stab at her open letter:

There have been many stabs and shots taken, thankfully they don’t bother me the way they used to. I’ve never lied about one thing involving the demise of my marriage. No, we were not “apart” or separated, and that’s just a fact that can be proven in many ways. Blessings have a way of disguising themselves. This situation has helped me to understand life and what really matters.

On if she will be comfortable to sit down with Alicia and Swizz to clear the air:

They are normal people who have been blessed with talents and great opportunities. Being a star in my eyes isn’t solely about your success in the business, it’s about your success in your personal life, the success of your soul. I’m always ready and willing to sit with the co-parents of my son, that’s not even a question. There isn’t one doubt in my mind that one day it will all come together the way it’s supposed to. We are all a work in progress.
