EXCLUSIVE: Matt Barnes & Gloria Govan Confirm They're NOT Engaged, Meeka Claxton & Somaya Reece Throw Shade At Reality Show Producers

"Basketball Wife LA" star Gloria Govan was front and center at her man Matt Barnes' BLEU magazine cover party in NYC Tuesday night.  And even though they are back together, the twosome confirmed to TheYBF.com there are no plans to head down the aisle...yet.  Check out our exclusive pics and chit chat with the couple and Meeka Claxton and Somaya Reece inside....

Ms. Gloria was indeed glowing at her man's BLEU magazine event Tuesday night, but it's not because of an engagement.  TheYBF.com was on hand at the private party at Ricardo's Steakhouse in NYC to celebrate Laker baller Matt Barnes' new cover

And while Gloria did confirm the two are back on and making improvements in their relationship...she's NOT engaged.  She tells us the rumors that swirled back in April were false.

The cast has been taping the new season of "BBW LA" for about a month now.  And Gloria tells us that a few new faces DO pop up this season on the cast.  As for who's returning--definitely her sister Laura.  And even though she didn't appear too thrilled about it--Jackie Christie.

As for what Gloria, who was involved in her own fair share of drama on her own show, thinks about the backlash of the original Miami cast of "Basketball Wives," she doesn't watch, but feels that it's "a bit out of control and immature."

That about sums it up.  More pics of Matt & Gloria boo'd up at the BLEU event:

Reality chicks Meeka Claxton and Somaya Reece (along with Al Reynolds) also came out to support.  The two reality chicks also gave us their 2 cents about being pissy with the producers of their shows.

Former "Basketball Wife" Meeka says Exec. producer/cast member Shaunie O'Neal is "full of it" about wanting more positivity. She said they taped plenty of positive footage that producers did not use because negativity is what gets ratings.

As for whether Meeka watches the show since being given the boot?  Absolutely not.  She made it very clear that she doesn't want to give them ratings. She says, though, she "has no regrets." Up next for the self-proclaimed businesswoman?  Working on a fashion line for young girls.  Of course.

And "Love & Hip Hop" star Somaya Reece looking fabulous after breast reduction surgery and a hardcore workout/dieting plan, had some words about her own show's producers.  She revealed she was "really disrespected" because they barely had her on this past season.  So she's not sure she's returning for the next one. 

She did confirm, however, that co-star Chrissy Lampkin is currently filming a spinoff show with Jim Jones.  And Somaya is close to finishing her rap album.

Meeka, there's only so much

Meeka, there's only so much that the producers can edit. They cannot put words in people's mouth. Stop acting like you were innocent.

Gloria, why or why are you

Gloria, why or why are you still wasting your time with this man...!!!! If he aint done nothing honrable by you by now he aint ever going to. So what was your point in moving out of his mansion into your own place anyway if you were still going to settle for just being his baby mama jump off. You are too beautiful to waste anymore of your time

Lol at all these non factor

Lol at all these non factor comments, but you non factors are commenting on them..Like it or not these ppl are paid and most of you are not..Last time I checked Barnes plays for the Lakers and was chosen to stay over Odom..And although i disagree with that decision, that pretty much makes him a factor and so does his contract.. meanwhile his BM who was kicked of the first BW ends up on the second one and is getting paid per episode..Again that makes her a factor.. You ppl kill me commenting and dissing ppl who could give two shit about you and could probably by yall..Hoes are not..LAUGING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK!!
Tay 's picture

I agree that the comments

I agree that the comments added to this post, negative or positive, only increase these psuedo-celeb's relevance. But get out of here with the Odom comment because it has no relevance. Lakers wanted a lower payroll and Lamar makes way more bank (not to mention has way more talent) than Matt so they had to do what they had to do.

Al Reyonlds and Matt Barnes

Al Reyonlds and Matt Barnes look related. I once found Matt attractive but the B.S. that comes out of his mouth magnifies his imperfections, like his funny shaped mouth and sinister smile. I wish he and Gloria would either get married or stop appearing together and saying they are not together when we all know they still freaking each other off. Meeka hair looks pretty but she is so damn irrelevant anything she says is pointless. Somaya figure looks great and so does her make up but I just wish she stopped dressing like "Chiquita the banana lady."

Everyday the same 4-5 people ALWAYS, regardless of the post or circumstances surrounding said post, have something mean & negative to say. That's some really sad shit. Is life THAT bad?

How does Gloria know that BBW

How does Gloria know that BBW is "a bit out of control and immature" if she doesn't watch it? And how is her show better? Why is Meeka still on my computer screen? Somaya is cool, but she needs more of a story line. Like a friend on the show that is actually close to her. She's too set apart from the rest of the people on the show. Doesn't matter to me anyway, because without Chrissy and Jim I won't be watching anyway.
