Reality TV’s Newest Married Couple: Matt Barnes & Gloria Govan Covers Rolling Out

Yes, it is official! Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan are now married. They tied the knot in Vegas during a secret wedding ceremony this past weekend. The twosome is also covering the latest issue of Rolling Out Magazine. On the cover, they are photo’d sitting on a motorcycle. Below are some excerpts:

While shooting for our cover story, Matt and Gloria laugh, giggle and continuously exchange glances as though sharing a secret. To call it endearing would be an understatement. As though the irony gods themselves are watching when I sit down with Gloria, Tamia’s ballad “So Into You” is playing through the iPod speakers. She explains through beautifully painted red lips and a flutter of lashes, that she and Matt spent nearly a year apart, but ultimately grew closer.”

We took an eight-month hiatus,” she says. “Now that we’re back together, we’re mainly focused on becoming friends again and mainly parents too. We got into such a routine that we forgot to do all the lovey-dovey stuff like date nights.”

She adds that the break allowed her to gain the confidence to be more of herself around her man. Oh, and by the way Mr. Barnes, she thinks eggs are disgusting. “I grew so much over those eight months. Now I have to be like, ’Uh uh, I know I used to like that because you liked that … I said all that to be cute for you but I don’t like eggs mother—–!’ So now he’s really getting to know me. That’s fun.””

DON BLEEK Partied It Up With Gloria & Laura Govan, Matt Barnes & Somaya Reece @ BBWLA Private Viewing Party

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:
