Is Gloria Govan done with ‘BBW: LA’?

    According to Gloria Govan, VH1 has already offered her and her co-stars a season 2, but she isn’t 100 percent sure she’ll be back if “Basketball Wives: LA” returns.

    “I’m not going to say, ‘No, I’m not coming back,’” she told Sister 2 Sister. However, she’s not offering up a definite “yes” either.

    “I think between now and the next time filming comes around, I hope to have other projects take off. I’m leaving my options open. I’m not committing to anything,” she said, adding, “’Basketball Wives’ has obviously opened up a lot of doors.”

    Although she is responsible for bringing the cast of characters together for the spin-off series, she really wasn’t a focal point of the drama.

    “I did a lot of traveling, and I’m actually coaching girls basketball and that took a lot of my time. I had previous commitments,” she explained.

    “I was always being filled in, but I was left out of the drama ‘cause I was never around. [My castmates] would just come to me and vent. I would assess the situation from there,” said Gloria, who was too busy with other things to actually feel left out.

    In addition to raising her boys as a single parent now and focusing on her acting career, Gloria has some other ideas to keep cash flowing in if she doesn’t return to the show.

    “I’m looking to write kids’ books and looking at doing a body after babies DVD. Those are some of the things I’m working on, acting being my main focus,” she said.

    It was in acting class that Gloria met one of the breakout stars of the show, Draya Michele.

    “Yes, I introduced her; I know. Some people love me. Some people hate me for it. She has a lot of growing to do, but I think she’s on the right path,” said Gloria, who has nothing but affection for her co-stars now.

    All but one.

    “With the exception of Jackie [Christie], we really are all friends… We’re all pleasant with one another. We’re all friends. There’s no animosity there. We’re all cool,” she said.

    Where does that leave Jackie, who started off as a confidante and friend to most of the ladies before they concluded that she was causing confusion?

    “I don’t know how she’s going to come back. She embarrassed herself. I don’t think people received it as well as she was hoping. I don’t know how she would come back,” Gloria said.
