    Laura Govan advises critics of the “Basketball Wives” franchise to lighten up.

    “For people to boycott only brings more attention to the show. It is entertainment. Take it for what it is. Go into the urban communities to see what’s going on instead of trying to criticize us. It is what it is,” she told Uptown magazine.

    “For me, it is entertainment. Don’t take it so seriously and literally,” she warned.

    Though her family has relocated to Miami, Laura is still an official cast member of the L.A. version of the show. Despite the series originating in South Beach, she said she is not willing to jump ship.

    “I am not a show hopper. I started in L.A., and that’s where I plan on staying. Me and my sister [Gloria Govan] pitched that show in L.A. I will always be there to support that show,” she insisted.

    While Gloria and Laura partnered up to pitch the series, the sisters’ relationship seems to have taken a hit since season 1. In the season 2 premiere, the two had an awkward meeting and admitted that they hadn’t spoken in almost a year.

    However, Laura said it’s not anything fans need to worry about.

    “There were times where I didn’t talk to my sister. We’re not trying to sugarcoat anything. I think most people can relate because a lot of people go through what we go through,” she said. “If we are beefing or not, I still have her back.”

    As for her other cast members, Laura, who got physical with co-star Malaysia Pargo last year, said season 1 drama won’t be following her into the new season.

    “I have no intentions of going into it not talking to anyone. I will keep my guard up. I don’t have quarrels with anyone. I am good with everybody,” she said.
