Terez, Gloria would like me if I had no money...I think..

The VH1 show Basketball Wives has shed a not so positive light of the women who are married, engaged or dating Professional athletes..One in particular who’s having a tough time is the wifey of the Orlando Magic’s Matt Barnes..His Baller Wife, Gloria Govan won’t be returning for a second season of the show..In an Interview with Honey Magazine she said “I wasn’t really happy with how they portrayed us, and that was most disappointing. When I originally signed up to do the show, I was told it was supposed to be about independent women trying to step outside of the shadows of their significant others.” Gloria also has a difficult time dealing with the stereotypes that are associated with baller’s wives..There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t hear that people think I’m a gold digger, or think I’m with Matt for his money, or that I’m uneducated and that we don’t do anything with ourselves.” I really can’t sympathize with her..Baller chicks are baller chicks..and they’re usually bad news.-TO
