Just before they ran off to Vegas and got hitched in a secret wedding over the weekend, ‘Basketball Wives LA’ stars Matt and Gloria Barnes shot a seductive shoot for the latest issue of Rolling Out magazine. Inside, Gloria dished on marriage not being a priority (she changed her mind quick!), as well as if she still wanted to slap up Evelyn Lozada. The two also revealed how spending 8 months apart helped bring them closer together.
Peep a few excerpts and the entire spread below:
On their 8 month break from each other
Gloria : We took an eight month hiatus. Now that we’re back together, we’re mainly focused on becoming friends again and mainly parents too. We got into such a routine that we forgot to do all the lovey dovey stuff like date nights. I grew so much over those eight months.
Now I have to be like, ‘Uh uh, I know I used to like that because you liked it but I said all that to be cute for you! I don’t like eggs mother—! So now he’s really getting to now me. That’s fun.
Matt: We love each other. As a young couple you need to experience stuff and live your life and do things sometimes on your own. I understood that and she understood that. It was a small break that was hard but at the time was needed. It brought us closer together and we’re a lot stronger now.”
Matt on why he will not be returning to Basketball Wives LA
Matt: I’ve been a side piece to ‘Basketball Wives. I’ve never been a main character so to speak. This season I’m completely not in the show. I think for the sake of our relationship it was best to fall back and not put our stuff out there like before for people to pick and pry through. This time around we’re gonna do what works for us and not what society wants us to do.
On when the two will get married
Gloria: It’s not that we’re not interested; it’s just not now. I don’t think it’ll be what people are expecting. I’ll probably be like ‘hey, I got married girl,’ wanna come to the party? I’ll probably send out a flyer for the party,”
Matt’s a traditionalist so he’ll want a big wedding. Which I would do [for him], but it won’t be like a Kim Kardashian wedding. It’ll be like, ‘you want some barbecue?’. […] Marriage is something I want to do, it’s just not on my number one priority list. Maybe, don’t tell him I said this…maybe another baby,” says Gloria in a whisper.
Gloria on if she truly meant what she said about wanting to kick Evelyn and Jackie Christie azzes
Absolutely [I stick by that.] My feelings are what they are to Evelyn, I don’t like to kick anyone while they’re down but…I think they’re a cute couple I honestly do [Chad and Evelyn] and I know Chad really loves her. Mainly I hope they keep people out of their relationship. That’s what I’ve had to do. Jackie Christie has a mouth piece on her, she’ll make a paraplegic feel bad for her. The way she kind of suckers you in with her words; she’ll give you so many compliments to the point that you’re like ‘damn, okay!’ [extends arms] Give me a hug girl. She’s someone you have to accept, she’s like a beauty mark or a birthmark. It’s like ‘damn that sh— terrible, but it’s there. You work around it.
