A lot has been said about Laura Govan’s ten-year relationship with NBA baller Gilbert Arenas. From blog posts to separations to bitter rumors, Laura has heard it all. But as they say, if you want to know the truth, go straight to the source. So we did.

Last weekend we sat down with Laura at her VIBE Vixen photo shoot in Harlem and got a chance to separate fact from fiction as well as get the tea on her upcoming wedding. She also revealed that she lost 80 lbs since delivering her baby and she would definitely do a show with Gilbert Arenas. Check out the interview:

First I have to say, that’s one massive ring on your finger.

It’s 23 carats. Gilbert designed it. I love it.

So how far along are the wedding plans?

We don’t have a date set yet but we are definitely looking to get married sometime maybe in the summer, we’ll see.

Would you like a big or small wedding?

I don’t know. I love intimacy period, so I would really like close family and friends. I don’t want people who are going to celebrate us getting a divorce. You know when you got to a wedding people are like “Oh, they’re not going to make it” or everybody is whispering “That ain’t gonna last.” I really want it to be the people that love us, respect us and not even know what our relationship is about, that’s between he and I but just to support it. So that’s all I really want so it may very intimate.

Do you remember your first date?

I remember the first date. We went to the gun range. It was actually my idea and our first date was going to a gun range. It was pretty funny.

A gun range? Are you handy with a gun?

I’m really good with a gun. Yeah, I’m really active as far as sports and stuff are concerned. I’m competitive so I’m down for whatever.

What was it that initially drew you to him? What was that moment when you said “I love this man”?

The moment I remember is when we first initially got together he kept asking me out and I was like “No, I don’t date athletes… thank you.” My father owns a jazz venue so I told him “If you really want to go out with me, you’ll work for me dad like I do. I have nine brothers and sisters and we all work for my dad so I said “you’ll come and join the crew.” I was like “Okay, he’ll definitely leave me alone now. He’ll probably never talk to me again.” Two weeks later, he was taking tickets at the door, serving ketchup bottles and serving out water. People were like “Don’t you work for the Golden State Warriors?” He was like “Yeah.” That’s how we got together. He was serious and it’s been like off and on crazy love since then.
