Gabrielle Union: My Homewrecking Ho Rep Almost Ruined My Career
By: Taren Vaughan
Gabrielle Union‘s name has been dragged through the mud for the past few years now for allegedly being the side chick to then married NBA superstar Dwyane Wade, most would say with very good reason. Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches, and those who defended her had the whole world thinking that Gabby was nothing but a Hollywood homewreckin’ hoe that stole her husband. Well…that thought hasn’t been cleared despite Union going on numerous interviews trying her damndest to defend her tarnished reputation and mistress title, something that she claimed almost ruined her career.
In a recent interview that she did with Radio One’s TT Torrez, Union spoke on howthe backlash she received for being a married man’s side piece was about to make her pockets grow thin:
“I wanna protect myself. I’ve built my life, I’ve built my own brand, I’ve built my career and my career took a hit from madness because people, some people refuse to see the truth even when it’s presented to them time and time and time and time again. So I love him but at some point it’s about self preservation”
Union went on to say that the drama surrounding her was about to affect her ability to take care of her family and she wasn’t having that:
“I pay for my family. I pay for my mama and my daddy and my sister and her family. D doesn’t write those checks. I do. So when something is starting to affect how I make a living, no, no, no baby,”
So was she more worried about her money or her good name?
Despite how in love she and D Wade may appear to be now, that homewrecker image continues to follow her.
Will Gabrielle Union ever be able to shake that hoe title?
