It’s not like we didn’t already know Laura Govan wasn’t opposed to selling herself out for a couple of dollars, but now that she’s bringing the babies into it, I’m giving her the super side-eye — both eyes now because she already was getting one from me for her antics on Basketball Wives LA.
According to the NY Daily News, the reality TV star is considering putting her kids on the reality show, if it actually lasts another season, but only if the network pays her more money.
Laura Govan wants VH1 to show her the money. The “Basketball Wives LA” star, who is engaged to Gilbert Arenas, told Confidenti@l that her four small children won’t see any more airtime until she sees more cash. “If they want to see my kids, they have to pay me,” Govan insisted. Her youngest has appeared on the show once as a baby.
Now on one hand, you could say this is business savvy. Why should Laura give the network five Govans for the price of one? But on the other hand, can you leave your babies out of this tom foolery, please? It’s no wonder Gilbert had a gag order on the mother of his children and supposed wife. The former NBA star was suing Shed Media, the company behind BBWLA, because he didn’t want Laura exploiting him on TV. This summer he dropped the suit after he and Laura reconciled but he still has the option to revive it should he so choose. I wouldn’t be surprised if that happened given this news, although this time around he should add a clause about exploiting their children as well. Kids really have no place on reality TV of this kind. I’m pretty sure we all can agree on that.
What do you think about Laura wanting VH1 to pay her to have her kids on the show?
