Even though actress Eva Longoria has already denied any and all rumors that she is dating Matt Barnes after the two were spotted out together, Gloria Govan isn’t putting anything past Eva or Matt. She recently caught up with Sister2Sister magazine and shared her reaction to the Page Six gossip that Matt and Eva have been out on ‘flirty’ dates. She also shared Matt’s reaction to her telling Laura that Matt can ‘bounce’ as well as whether it may have caused even more tension in their relationship.
On the Eva Longoria Rumors
“I’m not sure if I think they’re rumors. I think at this point having been with Matt, I don’t really put anything past him. He hasn’t directly said, ‘I’m doing this. I’m doing that.’ I’ve heard from some sources that it could be a definite possibility.”
“Dang. I haven’t even been out of the house for a month. Those are the things that float around that start to get to you in your relationship. I know he denied it, but I don’t really know too much about that situation to say it’s not true, but I don’t know enough to say that it is. It wouldn’t surprise me.”
On Being Disrespectful to Matt When She Said “He Can Bounce” on the Show
“He asked me about that. That’s not how I said it. That was disrespectful. I’d re-edit that part. That’s not how I meant it.”
“That was a heartfelt conversation between me and my sister. I was on the verge of tears. They didn’t show all that. That’s not how I feel. I actually kinda like him.”
“I think it definitely brought on added stress to our relationship. We’re filming five days a week for hours at a time. That brings on added drama and added stress. The show wasn’t the reason Matt and I have gone our separate ways, but it has added some unnecessary drama.
On Dating Athletes, Not Basketball Players
“Someone who dates multiple players like in the same field is a groupie.”
“If you continue to date athletes, you’re going to be considered a groupie. At some point in time, you have to have respect for yourself and not dip into the same cookie jar. I’m attracted to athletes, but I have enough respect for Matt not to date one of his colleagues.”
“At some point in time when I am starting to look to seriously date, it could be a celebrity or another athlete from another sport.”
