"Basketball Wives: LA" Star Laura Govan & Actress Reagan Gomez Up Their Sexy Factors For EDGE Magazine
Laura Govan is back in love...and it shows. Now that she and fiance' Gilbert Arenas have reconnected after their breakup last year, Laura's been looking happier than ever. And apparently, she's been working her ass off to get her fab post-4-babies bod whipped into shape.
Actress Reagan Gomez is also featured and flaunting her fabness--and her new job as a political advocate for President Obama. Check out their brand new pics for EDGE Magazine and what they had to say inside...
Now that her man Gilbert was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies, Laura and their 4 kids all under te age of 5 have been making it work. And she looks damn good doing it:
The sports loving reality tv mom, who is rocking looks from The Closet Freak, chatted with EDGE about her next moves, cooking dinner for her man, and more. Here's a few of the excerpts:
Is "reality TV" only entertainment? Should people just take it at face value?
"I think so. The show is produced. Sure, the cameras are always on but of course they’re not going to show me changing my son’s diaper or watching a movie at home with the kids after having just cooked dinner. The reason being is because that wouldn’t be entertaining. The show was created to be entertainment and so that’s what you get."
What is something that people would be surprised to know about you?
"Probably how domestic I am. I cook dinner for my man and my children every night, do the laundry, drive the kids to school, etc. I really am a modern day housewife."
How did you meet Gilbert?
"I was coaching a basketball camp and he was working out in the gym that I was in. I had zero interest in athletes and turned him down when he first approached me. My father owned and still does own a nightclub in Oakland that I would work in part time, so I told him if he was seriously interested in me then he would come and get a job at my father’s place. I thought for sure this would give him the hint that I wasn’t interested and to my surprise, there he was. Working and taking tickets at the door."
What’s the biggest misconception about you on the show?
"The biggest misconception would be that I’m a bully and I’m always trying to fight with someone. I’m a very nice person and the only time I have problems is when someone takes my kindness for weakness."
What would you like your legacy to be?
"That I was a hustler. I didn’t stop. I didn’t quit. I want my legacy to be that everyone who knew me loved me and was proud of me."
What’s next for you?
"I have a work out DVD that I’m releasing this year in addition to a healthy eating cook book. I know there’s tons of cook books out there for different things like low card, diabetic, etc. but my cook book really is for the everyday working man and woman who don’t have time to be in the kitchen for hours preparing their meals. All the recipes are going to be fast, delicious and most importantly quick. It’s also going to include candid and quirky cooking stories. Let’s just say, I made a lot of mistakes in the kitchen before I actually mastered the craft. (laughing)
That ought to be interesting. Wonder when the wedding is.
Married mom of two youngins, Reagan Gomez, is putting her actress platform to good use. She may be insanely gorgeous to a point where we really just want to hate her, but the sweet and sassy "The Cleveland Show" star is always known as a supportive and confident chick who is no holds barred--especially on Twitter.
Now she's put her often controversial politial opinions to good use by advocating for President Obama all over the country and via her social media networks. Check out her brand new gorgeous pics for EDGE:
On the purpose of actresses and her own platform, Reagan commented:
“You can’t just be an actress”, she explains sternly, “you can’t just go to auditions or wait for opportunities because they may or may not come, you have to create your own opportunities and then you have to create opportunities for others…. and hopefully that pattern continues and you see more people like you with a platform.
“People can’t be lazy”, she says, “at first people didn’t like how political I was and they would say things like ‘stick to acting’ and I’d tell them to kiss my a**, it’s my Twitter and you can always unfollow me—if you have a voice, now’s the time to use it.”
