Laura Govan Opens Up In A Recent Interview with TheJasmineBrand On ‘Fix My Life’, Molestation & Gilbert Arenas!
Laura Govan has made it clear that she is more than a reality star and ex-fiancee. Recently, the mother of four did an episode with Iyanla: Fix My Life and during the episode, Govan touched on a number of things. From her controversial relationship with ex-fiancee, Gilbert Arenas, to the status of the relationship with her sister Gloria Govan and getting back to herself. Immediately following the show, Laura spoke exclusively with Jasmine Brand from theJasmineBRAND.com. She reflected on the show, moving past issues with her parents and what’s next for Govan. When it came down to speaking on why she did decided to go on Iyanla: Fix My Life, she states:
“I felt like it was time. You know, for the most part, I’m over it [persistent drama with ex-fiancée] and tired. I wanted it to be an end of a new beginning. There is a lot that wasn’t put in it. For the most part, it’s hard. I had to take myself out of it and become a fan. Which is what made me cry. I could see the hurt, the pain. It was hard to watch. It was a hard pill to swallow.”
When it came down to her relationship issues with men and whether she felt they stemmed from the relationship she had with her father, Govan says,
“I feel like now, looking at that, yeah. And I’ve talked about that a lot, since then. It’s so funny because I use to say he was just like my father.”
Of course comparison does come in when any woman has had a troubled experience with their father growing up, and Govan spoke on comparing her ex-fiancée Gilbert Arenas to her father.
“Their demeanor, control. I didn’t see it then, but I see it now. It’s funny how I fell suit to my mom.”
Govan suffered some issues with her parents and shared with TheJasmineBrand information about what she felt those issues were.
“They don’t believe [when it comes to her sister, Gloria Govan] me. And I feel like sometimes they go where the wind takes them, opposed to parenting. That’s f*cked up, but that’s the truth.”
Speaking of her sister, and the issues they have been encountering, Govan states that when it comes down to those matters with her sister, Gloria Govan, “I haven’t spoken about them [issues] so much, in honesty.” One of the issues she had with her sister she mentions is that, “She stayed with him in my house in DC for 3 days when I wasn’t there – things like that. There was a lot going on.”
These issues stem from the fact that Laura suspected her sister of sleeping with her husband. She spilled more details about whether she had even gave permission for her sister to stay in her home while she was gone, telling Jasmine Brand,
“You think I’m going to give her permission? No. The answer is no and I would never do that, you know and that’s what she had done. And you telling me that you wasn’t beating [having sex]? Girl, bye.”
