Laura Govan Burns Wedding Dress In New Photo Shoot

Basketball Wives LA star Laura Govan isn't thinking about marriage and she wants you to do the same, at least that's how it appears in her latest photoshoot for Black Men Magazine. While setting fire to a wedding dress, Laura talked about why marriage isn't for her and how people shouldn't be so hung up on it. 

 

"I just don’t like the way the public perceives women who aren’t married vs. the way they perceive women that are. People place so much value on having a great wedding instead of having a great relationship; that’s why you see people get married and divorced so quickly. I’ve been with the same man for 12 years, we have four children and we’re happy. Focus on that."


Okay, totally understandable. But can Laura really act as if she didn't want to marry Gilbert? I bet she wanted marriage before he took off and left her with the kids and nothing else. Why is 12 years of being a "girlfriend" all of a sudden okay?

Laura continued on, saying the shoot was also a part of rebranding herself.

"For me burning the dress in the photo was my way of re-introducing myself; for many people my name is synonymous with “Basketball Wives” and although that’s part of me, it doesn’t define me. I just felt like “Let’s start fresh. Hi. My name is Laura Govan, ignore the BS you think you may know and get to know the real me."

Girl bye. Laura was soooo hype to flash her ring around after the 8+ years it took her to get it then Gilbert left her high and dry and she was quick to flash around the second and talk ish about her million dollar wedding, she knows that that man is never going to commit to her and shes just trying to hold to her piece-of-man on any way she can.

Laura girl you are a loser and dummy.  Why would you birth 4 babies by a man who wouldn't marry you? Please shut up, reenroll in community college and get a job!

Laura needs to sit her fugly ass down somewhere! she ain't fooling nobody. If Gilbert wanted to marry her right this instant she would hope her hyena looking ass down to the courthouse ASAP. If she truly felt that way there would have never been an engagment much less a "2 million dollar wedding." Hoe have a seat

I guess if you can't beat them join them huh? Laura ain't fooling nobody, w/ this marriage is overrated talk. What type of example is she setting for her children? She's sending a clear message to her sons and daughter its okay to have baby showers before wedding showers. Also she "been" with the same man for 12 years huh. Since when getting kicked out and abandon by your "man" constitutes as a happy relationship? I missed the memo, this chick is tacky and twisted.
