Laura Govan Slams Basketball Wives Boycott Says Don’t Take It So Serious
Are Basketball Wives critics taking the show too seriously andare recent petitions in vain? According to Basketball Wives LA season two star Laura Govan, viewers should be happy with what they see.
“People get misconstrued about what reality TV is about? You should be thankful that people allow you to be in their lives. It’s not harmony everyday,” Govan said over the weekend. “They only give you what viewers really want. For people to boycott onlybrings more attention to the show.” Currently in filming for the second season of Basketball Wives L.A., Govan says the show is purely entertainment , not something that should be taken seriously.
“It is entertainment; take it for what it is. Go into the urban communities to see what’s going on instead of trying to criticize us– it is what it is. For me it is entertainment,” Govan tells Uptown. “Don’t take it so seriously and literally.” As widely reported, there have been several petitions on top of popular voices like Wendy Williams , Star Jones and Nicki Minaj , taking a stance against thefighting, and in some cases bullying, seen on Basketball Wivesthis year. While Govan seems to think there was no effect, other than bringing awareness to the show, producers including Shaunie O’neal, have vowed to make changes . Even Evelyn Lozada said she regrets some actions, including throwing a winebottle at Kenya Bell, and vows to set a “better example” for her stepdaughters. The question is… will Basketball Wives LA continue the trend of fighting and bullying Basketball Wives Miami was filled with this season or will they make changes?
