Rolling Out sits down with "Basketball Wives LA" star Laura Govan as she talks about the Wives, Weight Loss and Love

Laura Govan graces the cover of Rolling Out

Rolling out’s senior writer Danielle Canada sits down with another Govan. This time, she chats with Laura Govan of VH1’s “Basketball Wives LA” fame, who’s quite blunt during the Manhattan photo shoot with creative director DeWayne Rogers.

Govan dishes on love, her college education, unwarranted threats and her strict diet. “I got lazy after the fourth baby. I said, ‘oh well.’ I got big, f— it. I’m just gonna keep it rolling,” she says while having her hair styled. “I still ate like I was pregnant for a while.”

“When the public constantly holds you under a microscope and critiques every imperfection, I can see how one would lose herself and begin to doubt whether or not they are in fact beautiful. My time with Laura revealed just that ... it revealed a woman who was still coming into her own–one who was still working to reclaim the self-belief that so many women lose after childbirth,” says Rogers.

Munson Steed, rolling out’s publisher and CEO adds, “Reality TV is equivalent to looking into a mirror. Smart stars, upon observing their reflection, modify their behavior accordingly.”
