In a interview with Sister 2 Sister magazine, Laura Govan discusses the Shaq affair rumors, her relationship with with Shaunie and the real reason she didn’t join “Basketball Wives.”
Govan tells S2smagazine,
“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.”
Laura is a former basketball player and coach who met Gilbert Arenas while she was working at a NBA Golden State Warriors basketball camp. Laura has a master’s degree in psychology and enjoys her role behind the scenes.
In the December issue of Sister 2 Sister, Laura finally addresses the rumors of her and Shaq’s affair. Not only does she deny that anything happened, she points the finger at Shaunie for running with a rumor that both couples knew to be false. She explains why she never called Shaunie to plead her innocence and sheds light on the true nature of their friendship.
When speaking on Shaunie O’ Neal, Laura says they weren’t BFFs, contrary to how their relationship was portrayed in the “Basketball Wives” reality show.
