We Want Pre-Nups!

Gabrielle Union is my girl! She is promoting the new season of “Being Mary Jane,” one of my favorite TV shows. I love Mara Brock Akil ; her skill as a writer, her story lines, her creative vision, is EVERYTHING! Her stories are so engaging.

Our girl Gabby is her own woman, much like the character she plays on the show. Gabrielle has this to say about her union with Dwayne Wade , of the  Miami Heat, and why she requested a pre-nup:
“For women in Hollywood, when they’re coupling, everything is about the brand. Everything is about latching on to a rising star, so you can kick your heels up. That’s never been my story, ever. I make sure to let people know all of the hard work that’s gone into my career. I want people to know the work that it took to get through UCLA, that I had student loans and worked. I was eating Top Ramen and lived well below my means. Now that it’s time to get married to a man who happens to play basketball and has done well for himself, I want to make it clear that I have in no way hitched my wagon to his star. I have my own wagon and star.” 

I feel you on that one Gabrielle, (((yelling “WE WANT PRE-NUPS” in my Kanye voice))) 🙂

Gabby & D. Wade’s Christmas Miracle: Wedding Bells!

Saturday night, date night, the hottest and most buzzed about couple of 2012 decided to end 2013 on a high note.  Dwayne Wade, Miami Heat star and Gabrielle Union, BET series  “Being Mary Jane” star,  have made it official and are getting married! In true Miami Heat style, Wade followed in the footsteps of his teammates Lebron James and Chris Bosh by making the Miami Heat Christmas Party a magical affair filled with love, tradition, and family announcements.

Sorry fellas, gorgeous movie star Gabby is off the market. The popular screen actress, best known for her roles in “Bring it On” and “Think Like a Man“,  was said to be beaming a megawatt smile all night! This will be the second marriage for both Union, 41, and Wade, who turns 32 next month.

Wade was in a giving mood on Saturday night, gifting his team mates with green “Masters” styled  golfing jackets and his love- a huge diamond ring. Wade took to social media to announce that, “She said YES!!!”  He delightfully posted pictures of the humongous solitaire ring on her dainty left finger to both his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Wade was drafted to the Miami Heat in 2003, has played his entire career in Miami, won MVP in 2006, and has helped the Heat win three championships. The Wade-Union family is set to make an official announcement today.
