BASKETBALL LOVER: Gabrielle Union GOES GOLD For OCEAN DRIVE MAGAZINE

Gabrielle Union is showcasing her fabness for Ocean Drive Magazine.  The gorgeous actress rocked a gold fish-scale like dress for the cover of the Miami based mag, and she talked about why the MIA has become more of a home to her than any other place.  We're sure her Heat star boyfriend has a lot to do with that.

 

Pics and interview highlights inside...

Posing in bold colors, shaggy accents, furs, and a basketball, Gabby is looking fabulous in the February 2012 issue of OCEAN DRIVE Magazine.  And she revealed why keeping her home in L.A. that she bought with her own money is important.  But why she still hates being away from Miami.

The 39-year-old Good Deeds actress is revealing why she feels Miami is the only place she can truly be herself.  And why she never thought about being a mother...but can envision it 5 years from now:

On getting sick when she's away from Miami:
"A week away is pretty much it for me. When I land in Miami, I feel like I've been holding my breath and am finally exhaling. I can breathe. I feel accepted, welcomed. I feel like I can be my true self, the woman I always aspired to be... More in Miami than any other place."

On keeping her house in California:
"[It has been] great because I have my own career and life elsewhere, I have a home I paid for with my own money, and I need to be able to nurture that as well."

On life with Dwyane Wade in Miami:
"D and I have a life together, too. I love my life in Miami, I can't imagine functioning without both, I love the design district, I love Midtown, I love what's happening downtown now. I can be at People's Bar-B-Que or Sustain or Prime One Twelve, and I'm comfortable. It's rare for me to feel that level of freedom. Miami represents joy for me."

On seeing a more diversely cast group of lead actresses:
"It's great for the other groups that are getting a chance to play more roles, and ideally, I'd like to think there were enough roles for everyone. But we are trying to get [filmmakers and producers] to consider that the doctor, a lawyer, even the lead could be an African-American woman."

On her career:
"I've been lucky; for the past year, I haven't really auditioned for anything; the parts I got were straight-up offers. I'm not so grand that I wouldn't audition. In fact, I wish I could audition more. There are a lot of people who won't give me a chance because I was in 'Bring It On' one thousand years ago. They don't think I can be more than that sassy sidekick. I guess they didn't see 'Cadillac Records' or 'Neo Ned.'"

On starting a family:
"I was never someone who thought about having kids – I mean, they're great in theory, but I never imagined having one [myself]. Maybe over the next five years I could wrap my brain around becoming a mother and what that would mean in terms of sacrifice and dedication. I don't do anything impulsively, so more toward the five years out than the one-year."

No longer having to audition, can live double lives in Miami and L.A., and has a man who adores her--no matter what folks say.  Must be nice....

I'm sorry but Gabby Union is

I'm sorry but Gabby Union is not a good person. She is a terrible person. My ex is best friends with Reggie Bush and I'll never forget when we were partying in Los Angeles and she was trying to holler at Reggie while still married herself. Then had the nerve to get pissed when Reggie didn't Wang anything to do with her. She was so disgusting. she is just phony period and on every occasion that I Crosses paths with her she was stuck up. Wade better be careful. She is a groupie and opportunist. And whoever thinks this bish was a multi millionaire is delusional. You barely make six figures in those small black movies. The most she has probably ever made is off endorsements and even then after paying everybody she is not banking like that! Also in person she is average at best. She takes one hell of a photography though.

Can someone explain to me how

Can someone explain to me how she or any other woman i.e. alicia keys etc... steal a man from his wife and she's a homewrecker. Most of these relationships, these men where already seperated whcih technically means we aren't together anymore but we are in the process of taking legal action under the appropriate laws and to divide assets that we once shared and decide who receive custody of our children etc. sometimes it takes years to settle on agreement. Does that mean that these men or women for that matter cannot date seeing as though they have publicly stated they are heading towards splitsville. Alot of times the wives will say, well we were still together when actually they were separated or maybe in transition. Plus we don't know what these men may have to them. Oh we aren't together we are separated and getting divorced and they may not have been so. I don't ever recall seeing D-Wade with his wife after he filed for divorce. it's one thing if he was out with his wife all loved up then out with gabby the next. D Wade hasn't proposed because he's probably taking the appropriate time to date and know this women. It's not always good to jump out of one marriage then hop into another especially since he has custody of his kids.She didn't force him to do anything he didn't want to do. Gabby has had a successful career over the years considering the fact they do not hire alot of African American women for lead roles. If she was fame thirsty don't you think she would've been on Basket Ball wives or some stupid reality show? They are a good humble couple that is obviously in love... So folks unless you know these persons stop all that stupid hatin

AnoniNYC said everything that

AnoniNYC said everything that needed to be said: "I don't understand. You can't wrap your head around being a mother...but you are exclusive with a man who has custody of both his kids. The mother really isn't in the picture like that. Their custody fight was pretty public and crazy. I mean on one side its commendable and unselfish that you recognize that you don't really want to be a mother. But at the same time, its extremely selfish of you to live and build with a dude who has full custody of his two boys (who by the way went through a lot due to their parent's public separation). I'm sorry, but if you love someone you love everything they come with (children included). So what are you to these kids...just daddy's live in girlfriend??? And when things end...what happens? She will probably move on to another athlete like she's been doing." It's funny how she always reveals her morals, values and truths even when she's trying to candy coat it. It's impossible to respect women like Gab who can't even be honest with themselves.
TOLDonYOURSELF's picture

UM First off, she said she

UM First off, she said she never thought about having her OWN kids until being with Wade...Which most educated women like myself think that way..We know its not cute to have two and three kids and you cant take of yourself...So what are you talking about.. SHe did not say she does not like kids and there have been pictures with him, her and the boys all over the internet so again what's your beef with what she said..I'm not seeing how you view that as sugar coating..
Tay Tay's picture

I completely understand what

I completely understand what AnoniNYC is saying and the questioning of the nature of the relationship between Gabrielle Union and Wade's children, in light of what happened with their mother. I do think we may be misreading (or rather reading into) what she said. That she is not dying to get pregnant in her late 30s/40s doesn't mean that she's not a nuturing, mothering caregiver to Wade's sons -- it just means that she doesn't want any of her own. The two are not mutually exclusive. Not every women wants to have that experience. It doens't mean however, that they lack the ability to be kind, loving and present for the children in their lives. Wade fought tooth and nail for those kids, I just don't think he would involve himself (again) with someone who wouldn't have the best interest of his children at heart.
Anonymous's picture

Great counter argument! And

Great counter argument! And you are correct...maybe I am reading too much into this. Those kids have been through a lot. I am sure (hope) both parties have the kids interest at heart.
AnoniNYC's picture

I agree. And I think it's

I agree. And I think it's actually good that she admits that she doesn't really care about having kids and chooses not to have any. There are many mothers in the world who, unfortunately, have kids and do not need to be mothers. But I think that Gabby loves Dwayne's kids and the only reason why she isn't adamant about having kids is probably because of her age and because she has Dwayne's kids in her life. So she probably doesn't feel like she's missing anything.

Thanks boo :) but

Thanks boo :) but seriously...is anyone thinking about the longterm for these kids?

Gabby didn't really become

Gabby didn't really become famous until she met DWade who was still married at the time. She using him for fame & media to be recognized. The B*tch 39 yrs old she don't want any kids nor do she recognize his kids as her step kids. Gabby is aal about self and what she can get. Bottom line he loves her but he's not ready to marry that Gold digging B*tch.
