Gabrielle Union Talks Pre-Nup, Previous Marriage & Not Having Bridesmaids

Gabrielle Union sat down with Arsenio Hall to discuss her upcoming nuptials. Although this is her second time down the aisle, the actress wants to make sure that this time is right. This is why she's not having any bridesmaid and there WILL be a prenup!

On her past relationships
I’m one of those ‘Baby, I’ll stick with you. I think you have potential and let’s be on this ride together.’ Except, my train kept going and they’ve hopped off. Everybody had the same six-pack as Dwyane, looked fuller, maybe not as much hair, and I’m divorced so clearly I’ve made a ton of mistakes before this.

On why she insisted on a pre-nup
For this marriage, the biggest difference between this and the last marriage will be a pre-nup at my insistence. When you have your own stuff you don’t need to worry about anybody else’s stuff. So everyone should go into the relationship knowing, I’m here for you and you’re here for me. And the reality is, I’ve never seen Dwyane balance a check book. So I got to protect my stuff. It’s just the wave of the future. Protecting your stuff.

On her first wedding
Yeah, well the last time, I just wrote checks. I was working. I had a wedding planner. I showed up like, ‘Oh that’s nice, who picked that out?’ I [was] not a part of it, but the pastor who married me the first time, he didn’t even get my name right. He refused to come to the rehearsal dinner and then didn’t say my name correctly. So the  whole vows — we got married in New Orleans — [he said], ‘Do you GAE-brielle…’ And I was like, ‘I, GAE-brielle…’ I pronounced my own name incorrectly so that should have been a sign this isn’t gonna work.

On keeping the wedding small
No bridesmaids. No bridesmaids, no groomsmen.  Trying to wrangle a bunch of broads. Somebody wants one type of dress, somebody wants something else, you start to not like them after a couple months. So yeah. And we’re older.  This is the second time around.  It’s us and the kids.  We’re just riding out. Just us.

There’s a lot of people that think they’re coming.  And they’re not.[...][Dwyane's] the executioner. He’s like, ‘Let’s go through your list…absolutely not.’  I’m like, ‘Our cousin?’  And he’s like, ‘No.’ If you’re not about us, and we don’t both have a relationship with you, you’re not going to make it. So if we were [partying together] at Magic City in Atlanta, you’re probably not coming.

Unrelated: Gabrielle Union is very media trained. In all of her interviews she smiles the entire time and she speaks with so much personality. She does not come off as a woman with outside-baby-mama drama going on in her life.

I liked this interview. I can tell she was tryin EXTRA hard to be funny but it was cool.

People mad at her decisions but I know I would choose the same, so I'm glad she's sticking to her guns and not swaying to public opinion. I HATE DWade (for the record), I think he is the biggest douche bag in the NBA but in this case, $$ talks. #fukit
