Basketball Wives L.A. Reunion Show News and Gloria Govan & Matt Barnes Split

It is almost a wrap for Basketball Wives L.A. with the season finale airing on Monday, Nov. 14 at 8 p.m. and the two-part reunion special premieres Monday, Nov. 21 and Nov. 28 at 8 p.m.

Basketball Wives star, Tami Roman will host the reunion special bringing together Gloria Govan, Laura Govan, Imani Showalter, Malaysia Pargo, Jackie Christie and Draya Michele.
As said in the VH1 press release:
The ladies come together for an intense reunion special to discuss their tumultuous season. The ladies will finally get the chance to call each other out on who said what and why. Gloria discusses the future of her and Matt's relationship which promises to make this reunion a must-watch.

So last week, Basketball Wives L.A. star Gloria and her now ex-fiance NBA player Matt Barnes announced that they had decided to end their ten year relationship.

On Tuesday, VH1 caught up with Gloria during the reunion show and she told her side of the story as she talked about the break up, on where she wants to go from here, what her family thinks about the separation and whether or not she sees them ever getting back together again.

I already felt this split coming. Matt reportedly said before that Gloria talks too much crap and we can see her crap talking more so on this season, even when she acts as if it doesn't matter if her and Matt get married.

Read some pieces from Gloria's interview below:

Your relationship has been shown a lot this season and we’ll see even more of what’s going on with you a the end of the season, but can you talk about your split?

Matt and I do have kids and we’re trying to be as cordial as we can right now and we’ll be in each other’s lives forever, but as relationships go, we have our ups and downs. It hasn’t been an easy ride moving across the country twice, having kids at 21 when I just graduated college, it hasn’t been easy. And now Matt has the lockout, so everything has been stressful with the breakup, the lockout, everything, it’s been a whirlwind. But we’re still friends and we’re still working things out and I wish him nothing but the best.

Do you want to sow your oats and date other people, is that part of it?

I think that’s a lot of people’s assumption, that oh, she wants to f— around and f— everything because he did and it’s like NO. A), it’s such a double standard, even if I wanted to I can’t because they’d put me on blast if I did. And B) I have kids, you know? I’m not looking to date anyone at this moment, I’m just going to take this opportunity to take a step back and reevaluate where I wanna go in life. And I think I have a long way to go to make my mark in feature films and in my community, but I’m happy. I’m happy with where I am now.
