Gabrielle Union Rumors
During the most recent episode of Road Trippin’ on Uninterrupted, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade — peanut butter and jelly — joined Channing Frye, Allie Clifton and Rafael Hernandez Brito to talk about a number of fun topics, including that [banana] boat ride. “Jelly definitely said, ‘This is not a good idea.’ But we have one friend who is the biggest gasser ever and that’s Chris Paul,” James said. “Wherever we go, if it’s like climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, he’s like, ‘We’ve gotta do it.’ So he was the one who gassed us. Then Gab (Gabrielle Union) was like, ‘We’ve gotta do it.’ She was right there with him.”
Wade wanted it to be known again during the podcast that he was against the idea, knowing that the photo would blow up. But James helped talk him into it and peer pressure got the best of him that day. “We got on that boat one time and we’re known as the banana boat crew,” Wade said while laughing.
Both Union and Wade have talked about how no one really wanted to get on the banana boat in the first place. Wade said he was pressured to hop on, and Union said she assured her husband that no one would see them (we all know how that turned out). But this time while telling the story, Union revealed what happened shortly after that legendary photo was taken.
Gabrielle Union: “So we mount, I’m on the front then I think it’s my spouse, then CP3 and Bron. What they did not capture was actually the best part. Once we all mounted the banana, the boat took off, and no one was really prepared. We were there for the initial jolt, and then he hung a hard left and we flew off and landed like side face first, all of our weight like, ‘(Expletive, expletive, expletive)’ … It hurt and it was painful, but magically they (the paparazzi) only got us astride.”
Gabrielle Union: “Literally, my husband did not eat anything green or any seafood, like at all, for the bulk of our marriage. Then, Bron comes, they become the Heatles, and suddenly he’s like, ‘I love sea bass. I’ve always loved sea bass.’ No, no, no, you didn’t. You didn’t love sea bass. Where did you ever hear of sea bass? And he was like, ‘LeBron, he made me eat sea bass, and I love it now.’ I’m like, ‘Well, what else has Bron introduced?’ And he’s like, ‘Salad.’ So thanks, Bron. The future farmers of America thank you.”
Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union’s wedding anniversary was on Wednesday. The couple that has traveled around the world all summer and had an awesome NBA offseason celebrated on Instagram by sharing a wonderful video that included John Legend, as well as messages for each other in their captions.
