I would love to spend a week with Vanessa Bryant.
To me she is the most fascinating of all the real Basketball Wives. Kobe Bryant is a Alpha Male in almost every scenario except with her.
Could it be because she stood by him when he was accused of rape or just because she is the only person who truly understands him we may never know?
We got a small glimpse of her New York magazine interview where she says she could only be married to someone winning NBA Titles and now we have a few more quotes.
On basketball and family: “I certainly would not want to be married to somebody that can’t win championships. If you’re sacrificing time away from my family and myself for the benefit of winning championships, then winning a championship should happen every single year.”
On life in the spotlight: “I thought things would go away, if you don’t feed into the b.s., and no one would think about you. Now I realize I do have to talk about certain things. Still, I don’t like the limelight. There’s a lot of good you can do with fame, like creating awareness for a foundation, but a lot of negativity comes along with it.”
On Kobe and her marriage: “We’re working on things.”
On rumors of drama with Khloe Kardashian: “Everything is false. Khloé was at my 29th birthday. I don’t get involved in the drama. I’ve been with Kobe since I was 17, so I’ve seen plenty of players, and plenty of wives, come and go. It wouldn’t benefit me whatsoever to have an issue with any of them, whether they were a girlfriend, or a wife, a person-of-a-month, or … you know.”
The person of the month line is a classic.
I believe Vanessa is a lot smarter than people give her credit for and never forget Kobe handed over the deed to all three of their mansions in an effort to stop the divorce.
That is grade A pimpin.
