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.

BBWLA Laura Govan Photo Spread With Kontrol Magazine; She Speaks On Not Being Perfect & Calls Jackie “Kooky”

BBWLA reality star Laura Govan recently did a photo spread and interview with Kontrol Magazine. In the Dimitri Crowder shoot, Laura styled in a few nice looking dresses and polka dot sandals. Inside, she talked about not being perfect, shared her true feeling on Jackie and much more. Below are some highlights:

On going back and correcting her mistakes:

“If I make a mistake or I feel like I have bad judgment then I try to go back and correct it.”

On her feeling toward BBWLA cast-member Jackie:

I don’t think she’s a backstabber. I just think that she’s kooky in all the ways of just being crazy. That’s just who she is. I think when people see her they say ‘hi’ and ‘bye.’ From what I assume, that’s it. I really made a friend in Imani and Malaysia this past season. I would say that’s about it.”

Laura Govan and Don Bleek

This past Monday (September 10), I was at work (Universal Republic Records) and I received a RSVP email for Laura and Gloria Govan’s ‘Basketball Wives L.A.’s Private Viewing Party’ at Suite 55 in Manhattan. I did not have enough time to make a quick run back home to change my clothes because I left the office a little after 6pm and the event started at 7pm. When I got there, the first person I ran into was Yakini, she is the owner of RealityTVFashion.Com. She’s such a sweetheart! We chatted the entire night. New York’s Power 105‘s on air personality Angela Yee hosted this invite only event which was sponsored by Vibe Vixen, Miss Jessie’s and Bartenura. Somaya Reece of Love & Hip Hop, Ariane Davis of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta & NBA players Matt Barnes and Gilbert Arena were also in attendance. Celebs filled the V.I.P. area, popped bottles, and ate shrimps, hot wings and chicken as everyone watched season’s two premiere episode of Basketball Wives L.A. After the screening was over, Angela Yee hosted a Q&A segment, followed by the celebs in attendance going upstairs to do some press.  Guests received gift bags courtesy of Miss Jessie. I had a good time! Peep the pics below:

Celebs Sighting: Mary J Blige, Rihanna & Laura Govan Looking Very Stylish While Making Their Rounds

Yesterday Friday (August 24), the Queen of Hip Hop and R&B (Mary J Blige) performed at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia. She looked stunning in red. I like how Mary accessorized her outfit with the red patent leather belt and sunglasses.

Pop sensation Rihanna and her BFF Melissa was spotted doing some shopping at Opening Ceremony in L.A. She kept it casual in a grey crop top and mini skirt paired with Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Black/Solar Red”. Riri accessorized her outfit with a $1,530 white Top Handle Prada bag.

Earlier in the week, BBW L.A. star Laura Govan walked the red carpet for the 4th Annual Merge Summit which was hosted by Fonzworth Bentley and his wife Faune Chambers in Los Angeles. She was styling on those hoes in a Bryan Hearns dress paired with Giuseppe Zaotti gold wave sandals from the Fall 2012 collection.
