Gloria Govan, Matt Barnes

A Los Angeles judge awarded former NBA player Matt Barnes sole custody of his twins sons with reality TV star Gloria Govan.

Barnes, 38, was awarded sole custody 3 months after police arrested Govan for pursuing Barnes in her vehicle and attempting to run him off the road while her sons were passengers in his car.

Barnes was also granted an 18-month restraining order against Govan, who he claims is still a danger to him.

The restraining order will be in effect until 2020.

In September, the “Basketball Wives” star filed documents requesting custody of her sons, claiming that any “alleged danger to the children” stems from the ongoing conflict between Govan and Barnes.

Govan, 33, will still get visitation every other weekend from Friday until Monday morning, and she is allowed to have dinner with the boys every Wednesday evening.

Barnes and Govan are still working out arrangements for the holidays.

It is rare that a father is granted sole custody of his children. Judges usually favor the mother unless she is found to be an unfit mother.

Child experts say boy children are better off being raised by their fathers during the all-important formative years (aged 2 through 7), when boys gain a sense of identity before the onset of puberty.

    That is good news for them I like them. Congrats

  • Trey

    WE DID IT…..!!!!!

  • Phillybruh

    Guess Derrick Fisher better add her to the credit card account because her income is down 20g’s a month

  • Victorious82

    Damn she must not be ish to lose custody. LA judges don’t favor dads. So this ruling speaks volumes.

  • Phillybruh

    You see she lost her damn mind behind him…lol

  • Pitty Patty

    They’ll be splitting up very soon. She’s becoming a burden , not an asset….

  • isaiit

    Matt Barnes oooooozes sexual appeal. HE. COULD. GET. IT. and I typically do not like a light skinned man but him…mmmm

  • Bashi22

    Gloria made the dumbest possible move in her entire life so far on earth. Why did you go to your children private school that as elites parents and we’ll connect parents to act a fool. Now your child support cheque going to $0.00. I only hope you had made some good investment while married, from your tv show and large lumpsome payout alimony. Please stop making poor choices through emotions. Only calculated moves win strategize your plan. You are born and raise California girl you should have known better.

  • isaiit

    Waiting for her to post some “inspirational meme”

    Glo you had 1 job and that was to take care of those boys…. 1 job, how the heck to you mess up 20 stacks a month.

    I cannah

  • sunni_daze

    He said she was stealing money from him during their marriage.

  • KLove

    is she still messin with Derek Fisher tho???

  • cherrypie

    I know somewhere Derek’s ex-wife is laughing her azz off!!!

  • LeeSeeCee

    Those boys are at an age that they need to be raised by their father anyway. Gloria played one too many games and now she is going to pay the piper. I hope that Matt, at this point, takes the high road and doesn’t say anything negative about her to the boys. He has the children. She will probably have to PAY child support. You winning Matt. Show your boys how to do this with class and dignity. Show them what their mother failed to accomplish by behaving like a mature and reasonable adult. Don’t be petty no matter how much YOU think she deserves it.

  • Phillybruh

    They are at age where they probably told the judge where they wanted to stay.

  • Pitty Patty

    Girl YES!! I would use my non existent hall pass on him. Hubby would have to understand!!

  • cherrypie

    Everything you said is correct AND she has to worry about her own legal problems. Mannn, i know she wish’s she never ever went up to that school. She gave him a reason to take everything she loves away from her.

    You do marry into a family, but that doesn’t mean that you have to take care of your in-laws. If you choose too fine, but its not an obligation. I feel bad for your friend, risking his credit and stuff.

  • Rayne

    I know she is LIVID!! She gonna have a nervous breakdown. Shouldn’t have been out there clowning.

  • Fire & Ice

    I hope she was saving those checks. Well she’s fa sho marrying Derek now ?. She’s lucky she still gets visitation and not serving time for child endangerment.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile she lyin in a bed like she just gave birth

  • Guest

    i know. I just found the picture. Why is she laying in a hospital bed like she gave birth tho?

  • ZZZ
  • TMW

    Probably doing skin-to-skin bonding. That’s a thing now that they encourage both parents to do

  • Rayne

    He is. Watch and see. He’s watching her behavior.

    She probably used her eggs. Who knows.

  • Joy King

    Wow! I don’t care for either one of them but he’s no more fit than she is. I feel bad for any woman, who isn’t a danger to her kids to lose custody. Gloria must be devastated.

  • Pitty Patty

    How you know he’s unfit?

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lmaooo….well congratulations are still in order

  • hi-liter

    ? right. Ion know how that got past everyone.

  • dru and neil

    I’m pretty shocked myself, they do share everything else. Congrats to them though, she said she’s had many miscarriages so maybe the surrogate was the only way.

  • Pitty Patty

    Skur skur skur…(Migo voice)

  • Dahl

    Idk any of their stories…why was she so angry that she wanted to run him off the road?

  • Pitty Patty

    Yep, this a goo story line for her

  • Fire & Ice

    Probably. That will really send her up a wall.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lol….yep

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    but why is Gab in the hospital bed? Nonetheless i am really happy for them!!!! She deserves to be a mom imo. I like everything about Gabby

  • Dahl

    Congrats to them. But was her egg used, cuz if not, he may as well had another break baby…

  • Karen Brady

    Gabby and Wade have a baby girl via surrogate. Well kept secret I must say.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    took the font right out of my mouth

  • Guest

    Oh my gosh! i almost burst out laughing in my office! lmao!You ain’t right!

  • Malai

    Can someone explain to me why Gabrielle union laid up in a hospital bed posing for pics like she the one pushed the baby out? I was slightly confused by that!!

  • Karen Brady

    WELP

  • Coy little wink

    Skin to skin contact for bonding mother to child. You ain’t got no chirren?

  • Karen Brady

    Like she breast feeding..

  • Alextra Ballard

    We all were…smh

  • Malai

    She could’ve put a tank top on? ?

  • GAPeach

    All that bickering isn’t worth it. It definitely doesn’t help the kids. My son’s father snatched him up, and wouldn’t return him. I had his ass arrested, got my full custody, and moved on. I got married, and now he calling another man daddy. Not once did I lose my cool. I handled things by the book. I can show you better than I can tell you what I will do to you. Matt showed her ass.

  • Guest

    Lol! We are so off topic in this post but these comments are hilarious!

  • Coy little wink

    That’s not skin hun

  • Malai

    A hospital gown is better? lol

  • Alextra Ballard

    What a day for news. Keke Wyatt got murried The Wades welcomed a new baby and Ginburgs broke three ribs

  • Pitty Patty

    :facepalm:

    People are stupid. I swear!

  • GAPeach

    They are probably commenting based on the fact that he drove like 20 miles to her house to beat up her new boyfriend IN FRONT of the kids. They shouldn’t have seen that either.

  • Coy little wink

    you asked I answered…

  • Malai

    No need for subliminalls.. just say how u feel… if it’s something that I’m not understanding then educate me, don’t belittle… you’re the one lookin stupid in that case

  • Coy little wink

    Its not rocket science why are people so confused?

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile she even got the I’ve just given birth look…all tied and shidt

  • Coy little wink

    I’m sure it was emotional waiting for her baby to be born safely and placed into her arms, no?

  • cherrypie

    She do look like she just gave birth – hair wrapped up and sweat glistening. I’m happy for them tho. They know how to keep a secret too. Wonder what they are gonna name her.

  • Malai

    ???? COY LITTLE WINK & PITTY PATTY will tell you it’s necessary tho… ?it’s all apart of bonding!!!

  • Malai

    She really do! But I am so happy for her because she has been trying for YEARSSSS and the opportunity for a surrogate finally came for them :)

  • Joy King

    Thank you! If Gloria is unfit then Matt is too. I call it equal, so I don’t think she should’ve lost custody of her boys. I’m devastated for her and they’re not even my kids. I hope she’s able to mentally survive this.

  • cherrypie

    Ya’ll, Auntie gonna let the story ride until tmw morning. She’s like this will keep them busy for a good while.

  • Nina Ross

    There’s nothing wrong with a man raising his son.

  • cherrypie

    Right and to find out she had all them miscarrages was sad. I’m glad she’s able to experience motherhood. I wonder if they used her eggs. I hope so she so beautiful.

  • Coy little wink

    I’m happy for them! I like Gabby…she will be a great mom…

  • GAPeach

    I don’t believe that I said there was. Not sure how you read it

  • Mielle Downey

    And experts are right. Women cannot raise men they openly turn thier sons into mitches or beta males. This is a very unnatural situation and I wish Matt the best of luck in raising his men. Laura do better because if the sons were with you they would turn out with emotional female tendencies.

  • SoChlo

    Me too. I don’t know how surrogates do it. I was under the impression skin to skin is done because the baby has been hearing it’s mother’s heart beat for 9 months so it is comforting for them to hear it once they’re born. Since it is not the same heartbeat I wonder if the baby reacts the same way?

  • Malai

    Yesss absolutely I agree!!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Oooo ok

  • Coy little wink

    There’s a photo of dwade holding the baby too…no shirt on. Its a bonding technique the baby learns mom and dad scent

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    do you think she tried it?

  • B.Loveitt

    Yes they are! Nothing to be confused about. I guess they feel she wasn’t suppose to be there. She’ll just come fetch the baby when they discharge ’em. Usually there’s a process they go through until the birth…to be apart of the whole process. Gabby may not have carried and pushed but damn the anticipation, hoping that during labor and all the stuff that goes along with giving birth it turns out fine for the surrogate and the child she’s delivering that belongs to the Wade’s. It wasn’t a red carpet event.

  • Malai

    So you’re saying that a rough, uncomfortable ass hospital gown is better for bonding verses something like a tank top whereas arms and breasts are a lot more exposed and the baby can actually feel mom and warmth from her body better… but that’s fine if you have your logic.. I have mine.. mine is right to ME.. so please continue to feel however you want to feel about it.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Well if yall say so….

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lmmfaoooo

  • Digital KittE

    Say it!!! I was thinking THE SAME thing! Method acting, maybe?

  • Malai

    That’s a great question! I’m not exactly sure if baby can tell a difference but hopefully baby girl learns who her parents are by being under them all the time.. im sure everything will be fine

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    Was his daddy a bum, or a danger to him

  • Coy little wink

    No I’m not saying that at all. Hospital gowns are sterile hun that’s the difference I think. If you’ve ever been to a hospital don’t they make you put on a gown first…like you can’t just wear your own clothes! To hold a baby fresh out the womb? All clothing needs to be sterile…Make it make sense hun..

  • MsChocolate

    Maybe because peepo who’s never given birth it’s harder for them to understand

    Right!! Fresh face and all!! No makeup! Nothing ???

  • T Willis

    She’s really not that open. A lot of ppl didn’t even know she was trying to conceive until Gabby wrote about it in her book. Folks didn’t even know she miscarried 8x. Gabby is open on her terms. I actually respect that about her.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Right

  • RICHIE_RICH

    What kind of services ? lol

  • GAPeach

    I never considered him a physical danger, but he was not mentally balanced as far as I was concerned. I honestly never, ever asked him for money. I made more than enough. He was just always wanting to start ish, and the final straw was the kidnapping.

  • wonderwoman

    Gloria can keep playing if she wants to. Derek will not stick around too much longer, if he is smart.

  • the guest

    Because she’s egotistical and strange. Same way she pretends Dwades ex wife’s kids are hers. The same way she conveniently is not possessive of or interested in stepmothering the break baby.

  • Y me?

    Right?! This crazy broad lost her kids and her income SMH

  • Y me?

    Lmao! Keke is fulfilling the lord’s will for us to be fruitful and multiply!!

  • Renee Bee

    Maybe because he has a new girlfriend (Beverly Johnson’s daughter) and baby on the way.

  • Lady_Elle

    Wow!!!
    Dang Gloria… I thought she was the more stable sister!

  • gellie

    She played herself big time. WOW!! Talk about lowering the BOOM.

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    Oh ok. Bless your heart.. u have to whats in the best interest of your child

  • Well$$Well$$?

    And she was dead arse wrong. From my understanding it wasn’t even her week/time with their twins. She just showed up at their school and wanted them to come with her. Sometimes when you do the clownery…

  • the guest

    The best thing Gloria can do is focus on her relationship with Derek, plan their wedding, have a baby of their own, and make a new family. This way she removes Matt’s power over her life. Make every other weekend with her boys fantastic and make every Wednesday dinner theme and extra special. But she must absolutely must make a new family.

  • Lolly Asher

    Dayum. What in the fix my life went on in the Govan girls childhood?

  • Skylar1

    regardless of any alluded shade I love how Sandra always has educational information in her write-ups..one can learn while acting a little messy..lol.
    also I am starting to think maybe Sandra is the only real unbiased reporter of the Trump campaign. I did not respect for caping for him seemingly but I must acknowledge her seemingly unbiased review of him as well as educating the masses on the inner workings of the houses and what is actually needed to move forward..

  • NorthDeKalb

    Good, I can’t stand Gloria. I remember when she was on Basketball Wives, she got into it with Bambi, and Bambi said “girl sit yo lil rat face, knock-knee’d a$$ down.” I never recovered from it.

  • Yup, I said it

    Thats what happens when a child is told all their life that they are cute. Nobody bothers to tell them they need to be smart too.

  • SG

    I can’t stand her or her sister.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    I heard a lot of women do this with surrogates. I do think she’s a tad bit delusional tho!

  • SG

    in a major way!

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    When trying to be spiteful backfires. Get a job hun!!! How can a women like her lose custody of both her children. Cant stand women like her. This is what happens when you hate your ex husband more than you love your kids.

  • ShWa

    LOLOLOL! BAM!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Truth

  • Yup, I said it

    Those Govan sister would teach those boys how to chase men because thats all they know how to do.

    How does she keep getting these men to marry her? She is bat ish crazy!

    ? LOL!

  • TMW

    Matt Barnes is either having a baby or had a baby with Beverly Johnson’s daughter.

  • T Willis

    I think she’s open to things that she won’t be attacked for. Little things like her s3x life and her love for her husband. Something like several miscarriages, fertility treatments etc., she’s very guarded and private about.

  • dblogged

    Wow

  • dontgetblocked

    Gloria’s head got too big. I guess she never became that superstar actress. Now, she’s lost custody of her kids. He has the money and the better lawyer. I remember when she was happy being a homemaker and cooking dinner for her man.

  • speakinmymind

    It’s called skin to skin contact and helps form the physical and emotional attachment with the newborn

  • Prettybrowneound35

    And Victor Cruz’s cheating on Karrueche.

  • Reenaface

    It is rare that a father is granted sole custody of his children. Judges usually favor the mother unless she is found to be an unfit mother.

    * Yeah well, she shouldn’t have went all fast and furious on him and none of this would have ever happened. I feel not one iota of sympathy for this chick, perhaps the boys will have a chance of some normalcy with their father* Let’s hope!

  • ClaireHuxtable

  • Fire & Ice

    If true, no surprise. He’s a serial cheater. I remember hearing on Tom Joyner, that his ex contacted all of his side chicks. Homegirl sent a group text to all of them. Child she was like inspite of what Victor tells you guys, we are still together. Tom even had a psychologist on, who broke down what it means when women resort to this.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    But she’s taking other people’s turns!

  • Li-Wright

    Do you have the source for that? Interesting. These women get around don’t they? I guess they all travel in the same circles.

  • Fire & Ice

    If you go to the post, Auntie kind of did a quick medical minute. The way to form emotional attachment, is through looking into the baby’s eyes while feeding. She said Gabriel is just being extra ???.

    YAAASSSS!!!! 20 THOUSAND a month she was getting for those boys. Was it that serious, Glo?? Was it REALLY that serious to eff up yo commas like that??

  • Alextra Ballard

    Matt sat byke and waited patiently….he knew at some point she was gon fvck up. Gloria can’t blame anybidy but herself. Why was she pursuing him and trynna run him off the road with her kids in the car? She could have kilt him,herself and those kids. Maybe that’s what she was try’n to do. I would not trust her with those kids without proper supervision. If I were DF I would have been livid. She still runnin behind Matt.

  • Dahl

    Oooh, thank you. That’s dumb, I wouldn’t have lost my children for that…

  • Dainese

    Someone said “This is what happens when you hate your baby daddy more then you love your kids. I hope she learns from this.”
    ??

  • Anonymouse

    Obviously she wasn’t that happy.

  • Anonymouse

    When you hate your ex-husband more than you love your kids… so true and so sad

  • Anonymouse

    She’s responsible for her own actions and no one has “power” over anyone.

    Make a new family? Honey, families are not like changing your clothes. You’re stuck with what you’ve been given. There are women in far worse situations making it work everyday. Gloria had it better than most and messed it up. That means there’s something wrong with her that she needs to sort out first.

  • Yup, I said it

    Gloria, poe thing wont even have earning statements to submit to the courts because, they don’t give w2 for hoeing :( Matt will get the standard $75 a week that they mandate for parents has no job.

  • pure_rachet

    Lol Sandra is not an African American.

  • Yup, I said it

    Karma and age has caught up. Sucks for them because their ATM/uterus has an expiration date.

    Wait! Keke got married? To who?

  • Fodderwing

    Yep. Lol! Same as what the courts ordered my daughters father to cough up cuz he hasn’t had a job in a decade! And he stiiillll can’t even pay that.

  • Fodderwing

    Omgggggg. So true! The family
    courts do not play. She shoulda stayed her ass silent and satisfied with the status quo. Nope. Had to poke the bear.

    Makes me think of Tameka Foster and the two kids she had with Usher. She lost her custody as well. And Luda’s baby mama Tamika Fuller who lost custody rights of her daughter to him…

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Now out of all the recently celebrity news, this is the most shocking, pearl-clutching news, I’ve read in awhile! WOW!

    I know she’s simply sick, losing her boys, income, before the world!

    But, family court has truly changed. Matt being with Anansa, Beverly (Legendary & Business Mogul) Johnson’s daughter, must have done a job her on her!

    Especially, how she and her sister thought they were the cat’s meow and could over-shadow any Black woman, he definitely upgraded her!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Yeah, Wow! You are right, it’s a case closed for her! Shocking, there must have been other incidents that didn’t make it to media outlets!

    She definitely needs to sort some things out, seek healing and professional help. However, you’re definitely not stuck with what you’ve been given. I see men go and create new families all the time. My husband’s nephew lost his wife and daughter, because he wouldn’t get a job and provide. She left and never looked back. He is with another woman now, and they have a son. He moved right on, and I’m sure there are some women out there that have done the same- moved on and started another family. It may not be the best thing to do, but people do it everyday.

    Dwyane Wade’s starter wife, Shiovaughn Funches was one of the first ones to play that game and lose. And their boys were little when she lost them. Angelina Jolie better stop playing with Brad. There is a definite trend here.

    I love it. Fathers are good parents too. If you feel you are the better parent and your children are not being raised properly by the mother take it to court and let the judge decide. A woman is not always the better parent just becasue she is a female. She will regret her bad behavior and decisions for the rest of her life. Karma is a beast!!!

    Congratulations to Matt Barnes. His ex-wife is a crazy gold-digger, no more money for you crazy ninja!

  • Maxx

    I don’t think she really cares as she put her children at jeopardy….she has Derek Fisher now and is on to the next.

    Thank you for the kind words. I’m only sorry I didn’t see this post yesterday. America was great before 2009. I’ll just leave that there.

  • Skylar1

    Ouch…
    I’m african American. It appears for my kind and natives as well as some other minorities America was not great until my kind was fully included and respected. Yes my kind in groups made huge successes in various forms but the overall system and american culture as a whole continued to legally and systematically disenfranchise my kind well into the late 60s at which point most jim crow and other forms of hate were dismantled. However there still was and currently ramifications of those systems of oppression still facing us today.
    As a blk professional male 35 I never truly felt America was my home until 2009. Not because Obama was “black” but because it appeared that the intelligent people of America finally outnumbered the fools. We all as a people of various cultures came to gather to make life more easier for everyone. Now the fools are taking over once again speaking hate segregation and dismantling items created to advance all of us.

  • TrollingStoned

    Dang. None of this would’ve happened if she wasn’t trying to be spiteful and sneak off with those kids on his court ordered weekend ????? Didn’t Derek Fisher abandon his family to be together? As far as I’m concerned their trifling behinds belong together.

  • Malai

    lmaoooo forreal!! i’m like why tf is her head all shiny like she been in labor for 12 hrs lmao

  • the guest

    I’m telling you. Matt Barnes set her up and yanked her chain and she let him. He was fking her on the low and gassed her up with lies and fantasies about getting their family back. Then dropped the baby news on her. Gloria was acting out of heartbreak and Matt got his payback. She cheated and had his kids around the next man. And Matt bided his time, sweet talked her, played her, took his kids and his money, and left her with nothing but that next man. Gloria Govan sure is naive.

  • Fodderwing

    You are sooo on point. He played into her insecurities like a well-written ballet. However, that being acknowledged, there is a set standard called a “burden of proof” that both parties have to overcome in order to show the courts that one partner is not entitled to shared custody. This burden of proof is based off substantiated, historical documentation (not he said she said…we are talking old medical records, old police records, old therapy records that prove the person had issues before the case in question) order for courts to permanently yank a parents custodial. She was seen as a woman who could not be rehabilitated in any usefull way. If she had been, it would have been a temporary order that she could have worked her way out of thru therapy and anger management. ‘Cept, she did get ordered to do those things without the promise of ever regaining custody. And if she doesn’t comply…she’ll be found in contempt…and lose the little visitation she does have.

  • Fodderwing

    Chances are it was in her medical records. That stuff is protected by HIPPA and FERPA rights.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I bet Derek Fisher knows all about it!

  • Fodderwing

    Oh yes. And Mr. Barnes! He paid his lawyers very well to subpoena those records and have them entered into the courts as admissible discovery…and if that was granted…it turns into evidence. I would estimate his total court costs to be around 300k. And that’s a lowball estimate. Billing hours for good family law attorneys are sky high in LA co.

  • the guest

    Lord.

    The thing is, Matt always had information about her but held it in trust because he loved her. If she is substantiated unfit, then he should have fought for full custody to begin with, but he didn’t. Remember, he didn’t want the divorce, he was violently jealous of her new relationship, he also praised her as mother, and was comfortable with the children in her primary custody, UNTIL he fell in love with someone new.

    Couples and exes fight in private and in front of the kids, it happens. It was insane when he beat Derek down in front of their kids. That was Gloria’s chance to press charges and leverage that in her favor with family court. But she didn’t, why?, because she still loved him and because his beating Derek low key turned her on.

    They fought all the time and he never felt her unfit before. Matt didn’t consider her unfit and the kids unsafe until AFTER she cheated and AFTER he found someone new to love. He set her up to destroy her using her mental and emotional frailties against her.

    Whatever issues Gloria may have were no longer in trust with him, all gloves were off, and he went in for the kill. Not because he was always concerned about their sons’ safety in her care, but because he doesn’t love her anymore. Basically, she was always troubled but that was fine with him UNTIL he didn’t love her anymore AND has a new woman to help him raise their sons.

    He took their boys out of spite and to unleash the financial burden of child support/taking care of his ex wife. NOT out of concern for their sons’ in her custody.

  • the guest

    Actually, this is what happens when you LOVE your baby daddy more than your kids.

  • the guest

    Because she was still weak for Matt who must be a BEAST in bed.

  • the guest

    Dwade was just giving her the feeling of giving birth. Those hospital pictures will be the ones they show their daughter as she’s growing up. Not pictures of them negotiating and signing contracts with a surrogate.

  • EMILY POST

    Woah gottdamn matt has a crazy baby momma. They looked too much a like anyway they looked like brother and sister people who look a like never get along well.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    He had to, to get this big win, she thought he was dumb or wouldn’t dare!

    And, she did get with and marry his former teammate, Derek Fisher.

    Karma

  • Fodderwing

    The whole debacle, and more over the actual outcome, is a testament to the overall lack of character this woman has displayed over the course of her entire existence. Only a narcissist would be capable of deluding her own sense of entitled self worth into creating the present monstrosity.

  • Fodderwing

    Omg. Beautifully written. Exceptionally intuited. Thank you for that perspective. I can be very cut and dry…thanks mom…but you have inspired a very empathetic view point I didn’t have before. And you know what…you are right. I can argue my correctness bc i know the legal standards but i forgot how to be human and humane. ?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Narcissist indeed because women like her who exclusively date or chase successful athletes and other entertainers, feel they are flawless, no matter what!

    She could never pull a Tom Brady or any white pro-baller, nothing, but a negro! She would be viewed as mutt, no status, no pedigree, or class!

    But, many Black men who date and marry them exclusively, don’t worship them (a myth), and can go back with being with a Black woman as Matt did, Russell Wilson, even Lionel Ritchie, and he’s old school!

  • Fodderwing

    You know, at the end of the day, we are attracted to who we are attracted to…narcissism aside. She could have messed with a white baller or z list white guy just as easily as the men she did get into relationships with. She still would have wound up in the same boat. It’s always easier to keep the act up when ur feeling the dude ur playing.
