An interview on The Breakfast Club has landed Laura Govan in hot water after she seemed to have made a racist comment about Vincent Herbert, the estranged husband of Tamar Braxton.
Drama here, drama everywhere, 2017 ended with a bang for Braxton who announced that she has had it with Herbert who apparently has another woman pregnant with his baby.
Braxton took it a step further by revealing that Govan was Herbert’s mistress or side chick for many years.
Talking to the co-hosts of The Breakfast Club, she said that Herbert is not the type of man she would sleep with because of his skin color.
The Basketball Wives star said: “I do not even know Vince like that, I think he is a great guy, but he is so not my type. I like em a lighter, a little whiter.”
She added: “That part is laughable, but the rest is not. You know at first it is like, ‘Is this a joke?’ Because I woke up to a story that is just not true and I was thinking, ‘ I have worked so hard to get away from certain stigmas and the drama from before. It is just [that] nothing is true and it is so hard for me not to go in…”
Many were offended by the racist remark and called Govan out for insulting dark-skinned people.
One person said: “Read your comment on liking men lighter and whiter. You didn’t have those same feeling”s when you, had those babies from Gilbert as long as that check was GREEN.”
Another shared: “I hope you ridiculed Gilbert for making nasty comments about dark skinned women though.”
A fan wrote: “Not only him but Tank, Bruno Mars, Nate Turner, Michael B Jordan and others who disrespect black people. So, you continue to paint your nails but don’t forget your feet too.”
Meanwhile, Braxton’s family members are worried that she is going back to her cheating and abusive spouse.
An insider said: “Tamar’s family is anxious that she has taken Vincent back again. This cycle had happened so many times already that it is almost expected but that does not make it less devastating.Her mom is beside herself with worry about her daughter and her grandson.”
This situation will stay messy for a while.
