Gabrielle Union: My Homewrecking Ho Rep Almost Ruined My Career

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?

    I feel bad for D. Wade’s ex-wife and their kids. All of that drama wasn’t even necessary. And Gabby did nothing but amplify the drama. There are also rumors she is still breaking up homes.

      Well you SHOULD NOT feel sorry for his ex! The truth is that she was able to drag the divorce out for YEARS! Gabrielle was NOT the catalyst for that divorce. His ex-wife cheated on him and he found out about it. So HE chose to date while he was going through the divorce. I have mixed feelings about that. Should you not date once you start divorce proceedings if the other person drags the divorce out for years? I don’t think so. However, that means that the person you are dating is going to be called names, like side-piece.

    Ok Gabby. So I see this media cherade she and D Wade have created will continue. Look, Gabby and D Wade are PAYING bloggers to write positively about their relationship. Ever notice how the blogs went from dragging them to kissing their a–es? Gabby got so depressed about what people were saying about her that she begged her little NBA boyfriend to start coming out the pockets and paying bloggers. Too bad it didn’t help her land more movie roles. She also sued Bossip for all the negative press and settled out of court not too long ago. It doesn’t matter because everyone in the know is full aware of who she was before D Wade and how they got together. She has a long track record of f-cking people’s husbands and won’t date anyone but pro athletes since her movie career is a flop. She needs to be watching D Wade because rumor has it he doesn’t just sleep with women…but judging by those little pictures of his painted toe nails on his Instagram account, it’s totally possible.

    Gabby looks real BASIC without her makeup and good weave jobs. I can’t believe he dogged his wife out like that. She had his back when he nothing. He had nowhere to go and her family took him in. And this is how he treats her? Can’t stand these two and I see right through the forced media coverage.

    I don’t believe she will ever be able to shake that “h-e title”, “sideline piece” etc. based on what too many people believe based on rumors, media and the fact that there are a lot of people who are haters. Once she developed that reputation regardless of where the information was gathered it will continue to follow her because she is a celebrity…her life is in the public eye.
