Gabrielle Union Dishes On Having A Public Relationship With Dwyane Wade

Gabrielle Union made a charitable appearance at the recent Miami Heat Charitable Fund Gala.  And she chatted up NBC about how she and her Miami Heat star boyfriend Dwyane Wade keep everything in tact while having a public relationship.

 

Her answers inside...

Gabby recently dished on the current projects she's working on, as well as how she keeps the relationship going with Mr. Wade throughout the busy schedules and paparazzi and rumors.  And she seems to be taking it all in stride, especially after the couple's recent ESSENCE cover story.  Here's her interview with NBC Niteside:

Niteside: What are you up to these days?
Gabrielle Union: We are doing press for Think Like A Man. Last weekend I was at SWSX and soon I will begin shooting the pilot "Single Black Female" for BET. And I just found out about another project, but I cant talk too much about that. I am a little busy, but I love it.

It must be nice to walk down the carpet with your man.
It is. I miss so much throughout the year so its nice when our schedules work for these kind of things.

Is it strange to have your relationship in the public eye?
We don’t get it too bad. It is when we are with the kids on the beach and photographers are there. They didn’t sign up for that, you know? Or when we are with our friends and they are like, “Um, I don’t want my bikini body being photographed!” I always feel bad.

Which city is worse when it comes to paparazzi: Los Angeles or Miami?
That is a tough one. Miami when it comes to the beaches. When we are in Los Angeles, we can be in Malibu and no one knows. But the difference here is restaurants. We can go to popular restaurants and everyone leaves us be.

Do you just accept the photogs after a while?
Yes, it's part of the gig. We recognize as part of being together in the public eye.

Both said in ESSENCE's February 2012 cover story that are not in a hurry to hit the altar for a second time.

BONUS:

Last night in Miami, Gabby was spotted all a-glow at the ABSOLUT Greyhound bash to celebrate ABSOLUT VODKA and Swedish House Mafia's new collaboration.  She looks gorge.

Gabby does not make ANywhere

Gabby does not make ANywhere near as much money as DWade. You see her on TV and think she has more than she does. She does alright. but believe me Dwyane is definitely a financial safety net for her so she can maintain her lifestyle when them phones top ringing and so she can enjoy an even higher quality of life now.

*THE SUN IS INDEED, THE VERY BEST OF DISINFECTANTS* @Ebony re: Mar 22nd, '12, 4:25 pm -- I read THAT particular blind item. I'd also read the pertinent Miami Herald article when that old story was new. There's many holes in this "solved" blind item, but 2 stands MOST prominent: (1.) Why didn't his X-wife go ahead with her lawsuit? As a matter of a fact, after Wade threatened to sue both her AND BOTH her lawyers, she dropped HER suit (HIM infecting HER). (2.) The STD the article is alluding to, that the cheerleader contracted, is Herpes. There's no "going to the clinic to get shots" treatment for Herpes. And even for Chlamydia, the "treatment" is an antibiotic, then taken ORALLY. This "solved" blind item is false; was done purely for shock and "entertainment" value, and even so is the product of a "vegetated" imagination! -->> Here's the actual link, have a read: http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=3917076 X,Y,"and Z" -- OUT..!!

Yes, Gabby is a beautiful

Yes, Gabby is a beautiful woman I don't find Dwayne handsome at all! Believe me, GAbby is looking at his money and how much she can get from him if he doesn't marry her!!! LOL. And yes, I read all of the comments including the blind items and I do believe hem. I ain't hating either. You'd be surprise at what goes on with these celebrities. I am also familiar with other blind items. It't sometimes difficult trying to figure out who they are but once you read the guessed, regardless of how many there are, you put two and two together. You also can figure it based on what you read on blogs such as this one and/or others, newspapers, tv, etc.. They are called "blind items" because the website does not want to be sued so they provide you with the necessary hints to figure out who it is!!! DUH!!!!!!!!

lmao. why would u think she's

lmao. why would u think she's after him for his money? she has her OWN money. u're ABSOLUTELY a hater. and btw, what's wrong with wanting a man with money? a man is SUPPOSED to provide for his woman and family. we all have positions to play. nobody sees a problem with a man wanting a woman who can wash, cook, clean and look after babies right? as a woman, if u're not seeking a man who can give u a good life for fear of being called a "gold digger", don't be mad when u're holding down ur position and u still have to go out and work...not because u want to, because u HAVE to. we'll see what u're saying then.

This has to be the most

This has to be the most hateful website in the world...I have never seen so many black women tear down other black women in my life. Why are you all so jealouse and mean. When you know if you could be her for one day you would. Andif her man got at you you would do him too. She is a gorgeous chick with a nice looking man, a career, her own money and she holds her own. Why cant you evil jealous witches look inside yourselves and make strides in your own lives and you too can be happy and successful. No matter what you type, she is still going to be beautiful, an actress and with a wealthy man..

So true! And the sad part

So true! And the sad part is, most will come on here & pretend that their hate for her is due to how she & DWade got together when in reality, NONE of us know the real deal so stop assuming!!! The bottom line is, they're together now, they look hella happy, and they both have their own careers & doing their thing!! It takes way too much effort to tear folks down, use that energy to focus on the positive, you'll be surprised how it returns back to you!

Basketball Player Gave

Basketball Player Gave Cheerleader a Gift SOLVED! BuzzFoto – This married NBA Basketball player from the East Coast is notoriously known for hitting on cheerleaders and asking for their phone numbers. Normally, the girls laugh it off, but recently one took him up on his offer and they hooked up. She is now going to the clinic to get shots for the STD he gave her. Not Dennis Rodman. SOLVED! It’s Dwyane Wade! Source: BuzzFoto NBA player Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat has allegedly been spreading that hotness around anyone with a set of pom-poms. In his nasty divorce from ex-wife Siohvaughn (Dang! Can’t anyone in that family spell use a normal name spelling?) the year after this original post , the spreading around of STDs in the marriage was a big point of contention. TotalProSports summed it up this way: Dwyane Wade’s Wife Says He Gave Her STD’s Today officially Dwyane Wade’s divorce with his wife Siohvaughn has hit it’s boiling point. Reports have surfaced in the legal papers published by the Miami Herald that Dwyane Wade abandoned his children, committed adultery, and infected her with an unspecified sexually transmitted disease. To top everything off, all his wife wants is the names of all Dwayne’s sexual partners for some odd reason. Of course, Dwyane Wade’s side disputed this. From TMZ: Dwyane Wade Divorce Deposition: STD Lies That shocking STD accusation in NBA star Dwyane Wade’s divorce is a big nasty lie, according to sworn testimony in legal docs obtained by TMZ. Siohvaughn Wade has claimed in legal docs the Miami Heat guard gave her chlamydia. But during a deposition, Andrea Williams … a close friend of the Wades — claimed Siohvaughn told her she contracted the disease from another man. We don’t know who gave who the STD, but a serious note to the partners of either Mr. Wade (e.g. “Hoopz” from Flavor of Love, Kelly Rowland, Gabrielle Union) or the ex-Mrs. Wade: Get yourself checked out!

BLIND ITEM JIGSAW: (THIRSTY

BLIND ITEM JIGSAW: (THIRSTY SEDUCTRESS) She’s a woman with a past in Black Hollywood and she has a reputation in the NBA and NFL. Before (this black female celebrity) got involved in her recent relationship (which we will talk about later) she often tagged team with her famous BFF to perform threesomes with famous men; mainly athletes. They used to freak the G.O.A.T. until her recent relationship started. She and her BFF no longer speak (for unknown reasons). It took her long time to snag a famous man and she’s not letting go, no matter what! She has even agreed to do threesomes with him (involving white women only-at his request). Now, she finds herself attracted to white women. Her boyfriend encourages her to pursue her attractions. His logic: He’s not threatened if she’s with other women and she can’t say anything about his infidelity. This is the sick glue that holds their relationship together. Who is the black female celebrity? Who is her former BFF? Who is the G.O.A.T.? Who is her boyfriend?
