Gabrielle Union loves her man and she loves her sports. She revealed on Conan O’Brien that her beau Dwyane Wade forced her to sit a few rows back rather than courtside at his Miami Heat NBA games because of her loud heckling and badgering of players.
“He said we’re gonna need you a few rows back ’cause I can hear everything,” Union told O’Brien.
She revealed that even Wade gets the verbal abuse. “Oh sure, I feel like who’s gonna tell him if not me?”
“I’m like dance mom. … I’ve become like Bobby Knight and like the Great Fettucini, it’s bad. I scream like ‘brick!’ and ‘air ball!'” she said.
Referees (even 72-year-olds) get the worst end of her wrath. “Recently, like maybe last week, there was an older ref, perhaps it was Dick Bavetta, and I said ‘you’ll get your Viagra if you just make a call,'” Union said.
Union is so funny, not just on the big screen but in real life. Her commitment to the game is…hilarious!
Union was on the show promoting her new film Think Like a Man which hit theatres today.
