Gabrielle Union Reveals Reason Behind Asking Dwyane Wade for Prenup

gabrielle-unionGabrielle Union is her own woman who worked hard for her success.

In her eyes, it makes perfect sense to protect what she has, which is the reason behind why she and her husband Dwyane Wade signed a prenuptial agreement when they tied the knot in August 2014.

“For women in Hollywood, when they’re coupling, everything is about the brand,” the actress told Yahoo Style regarding the importance of a prenup. “Everything is about latching on to a rising star, so you can kick your heels up. That’s never been my story, ever. I make sure to let people know all of the hard work that’s gone into my career. I want people to know the work that it took to get through UCLA, that I had student loans and worked. I was eating Top Ramen and lived well below my means. Now that it’s time to get married to a man who happens to play basketball and has done well for himself, I want to make it clear that I have in no way hitched my wagon to his star. I have my own wagon and star.”

Union’s comments come as she enjoys the success of her hit show “Being Mary Jane.” For those likening her show to Kerry Washington’s “Scandal,” Union urges folks not to go there, as the comparison is something that bothers her.

“What bugs me is that they’re making the comparison because they’re both shows that star black women. It’s such apples and oranges. It’s like comparing ‘True Detective’ and ‘Law & Order’ — you would never do that,” Union said. “What it says is we need so much more diversity in TV. We need shows starring women of color or women of a certain age or women who aren’t a size 2. If that happens, the world isn’t going to end.”

Amber Rose: Family’s No-Show at Wedding Because Wiz Khalifa is Black

amber-roseAmber Rose may have a loving attitude towards black men, but that doesn’t mean her family shares the same feeling.

If you missed it, Monday night, during an interview for “Light Girls,” the follow-up to OWN’s documentary “Dark Girls,” Rose opened up about how colorism and racism within her family and the black community affected her.

“With my family, they feel like they’re more superior, or better than an African American, because we’re Creole and we have culture,” said Rose, who is half-Cape Verdean and half-Italian, about her family’s view of blacks and her relationships with high profile black men such as her estranged husband, Wiz Khalifa.

Recalling the day she married the “Black and Yellow” rap star, Rose revealed that her family was a no-show at the 2013 wedding while voicing her thoughts on some of her relatives.

“I’m angry that my family is like that and they wanna ‘pass’ so bad that they raised my mom and my uncles and my aunts to not fully know their culture.”

OK, it’s time for late evening/early morning gossip.

Dish Nation is reporting that singer Rihanna and actor Leo DiCaprio might just be an item.

The two superstars were together on St. Barts island celebrating New Years and TMZ is reporting that they were partying at the Playboy mansion over the weekend.

“Leonardo and Rihanna are getting very close, and she just adores him,” an insider told Dish Nation. “So much so that word among her friends is that she has her sights set on him becoming her boyfriend.”

“Rihanna is no shrinking violet and unlike many of Leo’s model girlfriends she’s got ‘a lot of game’ to keep him on his toes,” the source adds. “They have been together at parties and even spent time alone at friends’ holiday apartments in St. Barts.”

OK, we’ll just have to wait and see how that works out. However, in the meantime, “inside sources” say RiRi wants to bring DiCaprio as her date to the upcoming Academy Awards ceremony.

So far there’s no official response from Rihanna or Leo’s camp.
