The reality show “Basketball Wives LA” is heating up with the break-up of Gloria Govan and Matt Barnes. After being engaged for close to two years and two children later, things appeared to go south quickly. It was shocking to most, since they seemed to be the only couple featured to have a realistic relationship.
The couple announced tonight they would split, leaving most of the “Basketball Wives” single. While only two of the “wives” actually have a husband, it seems misleading for the show to have its name. Maybe it’s because Jackie Christie has had 16 weddings with her current husband Doug Christie? And Malaysia Pargo is still married to Chicago Bulls player Jannerro Pargo. Well, two of the six main cast members count…right?
How can these women be called “Basketball Wives” when they “dated”, were previously engaged to, or are now divorced from a player? Isn’t this a bit deceiving? Funny that the producers can get away with this title, and fans watch it on a regular basis (including me:). But I guess if the reality series “Housewives” of every state can be called that, when they clearly are not….there really is no difference!
There goes the last of the seemingly strong relationships…is there still hope for anyone?
