Dwayne Wade's long-suffering ex-wife gave an exclusive interview to "Real Talk With Kietta," detailing her rags to riches life with the NBA superstar.

In the 8-part video interview, Siovaughn Funches and her mom explained how Wade escaped an abusive home environment to move in with them when he was 16 -- to how she went from living in the lap of luxury to moving back in with her mom at age 38.

"One night it had gotten really bad and him and his sister, his younger sister, had came to my home probably at like, 3 o’ clock in the morning and I opened the door and that’s when I had to tell my mom that I knew what was happening in his home and what was going on. I had to explain to her why he was coming to the door at that hour at 16-years-old. I had spoken with my mom and I had asked her is there any way he could stay with us and not have to live in that kind of environment."

Her mom added:

"The night he came to me, he had two black garbage bags and he knocked on the door late at night. He asked me, did I mean what I said when I said that I would never let a kid be out in the street with no place to go. ‘You would never let a kid go hungry and you would always help them if they needed something for school’, and I said yeah, I meant what I said. And he said, ‘Mama, I’m home.’ So I was like, okay."

Last week it was reported that the youngest daughter of mega church Pastor T.D. Jakes was divorcing her husband -- a former NFL football player -- after 4 years of marriage.

Robert Henson is a former linebacker for the Washington Redskins. The couple met when Sarah Henson was just 19. At that age it's almost impossible to see through the dopamine haze.

It's too bad Sarah Henson's parents didn't sit her down and explain to her that marrying a NFL player was probably not a smart move.

This post was edited to correct the fact that Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane did not respond to Tameka's Motion for Recusal. It was attorney John Mayoue who filed a response. Judge Lane legally cannot respond to the motion for recusal.

Usher's attorney John Mayoue came out swinging in a legal response to Tameka Foster-Raymond's motion to recuse Judge Lane from presiding over the bitterly contested case of Raymond vs Raymond.

In her Motion for recusal, Foster-Raymond accused the judge of showing bias toward Usher's attorney John Mayoue who contributed to her 2008 campaign for re-election.

In a lengthy response obtained by HipHopEnquirer.com, Mayoue called Tameka's petition "an assault on the integrity of the court." Mayoue called Foster-Raymond's Motion for recusal "baseless, unwarranted and untimely."

He argued that "Lawyers and law firms routinely contribute to the election and re-election campaigns of both trial and appellate judges."

Mayoue pointed out that Tameka's own co-counsel was hired by a law firm that also contributed to the judge's re-election coffers.

Vanessa Bryant could count her cash for a week and still leave piles of money untouched. So why doesn't she leave her womanizing husband, Kobe Bryant? The simple answer is: status.

In a recent interview, Vanessa gave a glimpse into her pampered lifestyle that made it abundantly clear why she stays with a man who continuously cheats on her.

"I’ve been with Kobe since I was 17, so I’ve seen plenty of players, and plenty of wives, come and go," she said in an interview with New Yorker magazine. "And I think that’s why the Lakers as an organization give me the access that I have -- that other wives don’t have.” She's talking about her access to the tunnel that leads to the locker room that the other wives can't access. She has all of Kobe's money, but her exclusive access to the team tunnel is priceless.

I hate to say I told you so... According to published reports, Evelyn Lozada filed for divorce from troubled NFL star Chad Johnson. Lozada and Johnson tied the knot on July 4 in St. Martin.

It was obvious from the start that Lozada would find a way to end the fraudulent marriage to Johnson. Most women marry for love. Evelyn Lozada married for fame and money.

Whether Johnson, 34, was in on the scheme to defraud the public is unknown. There is the possibility that Lozada, 42, fooled Johnson -- just like she fooled the public -- before her scheming literally blew up in her face.

Karma is real.
