Laura Govan Admits Producers Made Them Google Draya
More proof, that reality TV isn’t so real. During an interview with Hello Beautiful, Laura Govan admits that producers of the show made her google Draya’s name to dig up dirt on her. The two women (Jackie & Laura) did not initially have any beef with Draya, and Laura says she now regrets putting Draya on blast without knowing all the facts.
HB: What made you and Jackie dig up dirt on Draya in the first place? Do you really believe the stories about Draya and her son are true?
Laura: That’s really none of my business. I didn’t care to look her up. We were asked to do so. I feel like it was a mistake and I even said that on the show. I don’t believe everything I read. It’s hard because people twist and turn your words and don’t write down exactly what you say. That’s her child. I’m passionate about being a mom, but that’s her life. That’s one thing I can look back and say that I wasn’t interested in doing. I was thinking, “this is dumb”.
Laura also claims that she has no beef with Draya at all, and the only reason Laura tried to kill Draya in the ring, is because she’s just competitive like that. The beef between Draya and Laura is all manufactured on the show, according to Laura, but I’m not really buying it. Are you? Read the rest when you continue…
HB: Why did you dislike Draya so much this season? What are your feelings toward Draya now?
Laura: It played out on the show that we have beef but in reality, we’re cool. It’s no animosity and no drama. It wasn’t even like that. What was really a two-hour filming session, you saw it edited into two minutes.
HB: What was the real reason you went in on Draya in the boxing ring? Did you plan that fight or did it just randomly happen?
Laura: You know, I’m the same way with my sister [Gloria]. I’m very athletic and I’m very competitive. If that was mom I would have been lenient but outside of that you get in the ring with me and I’m going to start going in. Draya said she wanted to come in I was like “okay”. If it would have been any of them I would have went just as hard. I did the same thing with my sister! So it wasn’t intentional or me just going hard on Draya because she’s Draya, I’m just competitive by nature.
On her new beef with Jackie, that will be revealed on tonight’s episode:
Laura: Honestly, I have no idea what Jackie is talking about. You’ll see what’s to come. A lot of things are starting to be revealed. When you hang out with someone for a long period of time, his or her personality is eventually revealed, but I’m not like that. I’m myself from the beginning. I’m not a “fronter”. I am who I am; there are no surprises with me. I show you exactly who I am from the beginning. It’s so funny when you see it play out. It’s like on a first date people are pretending to be something they’re not, but with me you get the real me from the start. Like I’ll burp, I’ll fart. That’s just me! I’m real.
HB: Do you still keep in touch with any of the other girls from the show besides your sister?
Laura: I do! I actually talk to all of them here and there. I’m really close to Imani and Malaysia and when I see Jackie, Tanya and Draya it’s all love. At the end of the day, we’re working together. I support them all. How many of us can say we’re doing things on our own? Think of it like this, we’re co-workers. It’s not cool to go into work and hate each other. As a woman, I’m cool with everybody. Even if we have beef, it’s of that moment. I never let it continue. We fight and keep it moving.
