The E! True Hollywood Story is starting to leak oil, witness the “Basketball Wives” offering aired last night. The episode revealed nothing new or of interest, except the inexplicable reaction of Dwyane Wade and Quentin Richardson to innocuous comments made about Wade by his former wife and high school sweetheart Siovaughn:
(DWade can’t trot his wifey prop out for AT&T anymore)
Wade Tweeted about his wife being on the show: “Don’t Believe everything u read or hear. Thts all imma say about that. Ontothenexttopic.”
Richardson: “Shouts out to my brow @dwadeofficial for taking the high road on a lot of foolishness!! I don’t know many who could handle things so well!!”
The comments that Siovaughn made about her ex-husband on the show?
“It didn’t take us very long before I’d say we had forgotten God, our marriage vows and everything. I started fussing at him for staying out late at night. I started staying out late at night … No one would ever say ‘no’. Everything was ‘yes maam’ or ‘yes sir’.”
That’s what caused Wade to instruct us to not believe from Siovaughn.
So does that mean we should instead believe Siovaughn’s on the record claim on Jan. 16, 2009, that Wade gave her an “unspecified sexually transmitted disease“? Or that Wade abandoned his children Zaire, 7, and Zion, 1, for “months” at a time?
Siovaughn said, as reported by the MIAMI HERALD on Jan. 16, 2009, that Wade’s “failure to spend time with them . . . has resulted in the children at times being afraid of him; in fact, Zion . . . does not recognize or know Dwayne.”
Vaughn also demanded in divorce papers that, “Dwyane must disclose the identity of all of his sexual partners during the parties’ marriage,” as she alleged he infected her with a STD.
Or should we believe Wade’s former business partner, who claims the NBA player used their restaurant chain startup as his own personal brothel? A chain that closed almost immediately after it opened after Wade refused to show up at the restaurants to promote the stores?
What about Wade allegedly using his business partner’s condo for extramarital orgies and drug parties while he was still married to Siovaughn, leaving the place trashed and littered with used condoms?
Or the part of about Wade allegedly covering up a car accident which allegedly was caused by him texting while driving?
Then there’s Wade reportedly being seen out with Gabrielle Union while he was still married to Siovaughn?
Tthe charter school system that dumped Wade as an endorser after he refused to show up to promote schools that bore his name - after he took money from the schools as part of the deal?
And despite all of that, AT&T, Gatorade and Nike still pay you millions to endorse their products?
Awwwwright, no way that last thing could be true.
