Many people can’t help who they fall in love with–even if the person has a ring on their finger, a wife and a set of kids waiting at home for them, which should all be a stop sign for those wondering. However, when some folks fall, they fall HARD. And I’m assuming that’s what happened in these scenarios and relationships, whether temporary or still going strong, when these notable ladies decided to become the other woman (in the hopes of becoming the MAIN woman). Find out who made it past mistress status and who wasn’t so lucky to get more out of it than some heartache. And in our definition, yes, dating a man who isn’t divorced (even if they’re separated) still kind of makes you the other woman…sorry.
Sure, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are the cutest couple out right now, but a few years ago, Gabi was catching all kinds of heat from Wade’s wife Siohvaughn Funches for being the other woman. She felt this way even though their relationship was pretty much at its end. I’m pretty sure everyone remembers the lawsuit Funches unsuccessfully tried to file against Union, claiming that not only was she the reason the marriage was in shambles, but that Gabrielle and Dwyane engaged in sexual foreplay in front of Funches and Wade’s two sons when they were visiting with their father–allegedly causing emotional distress for the boys. The case was dismissed and Funches was shut down by the judge, even losing custody of her two sons. It’s no secret that Gabi and Dwyane were together before the ink had dried and the divorce was fully in effect, but much to the chagrin of haters, these two are still going strong and even professing their love for one another on the cover of magazines.
