Laura: Absolutely not. I am not a show hopper. I started in LA and that’s where I plan on staying. Me and my sister pitched that show in LA. I will always be there to support that show.
UPTOWN: How is your relationship with Gloria? What has she been doing?
Laura: First of all, we’re sisters — don’t get it twisted — we fight, we go at each other and we are honest with each other. But we are open and you will see it. I have five brothers and four sisters. There were times where I didn’t talk to my sister. We’re not trying to sugarcoat anything. I think most people can relate because a lot of people go through what we go through. If we are beefing or not, I still have her back. And Gloria is doing great. She’s moved into the acting thing and is doing great.
UPTOWN: What are your thoughts on Royce Reed’s open letter about Basketball Wives and the rumors of boycotting the show?
Laura: You know what, people get misconstrued about what reality TV is about? You should be thankful that people allow you to be in their lives. It’s not harmony everyday. They only give you what viewers really want. For people to boycott only brings more attention to the show. It is entertainment; take it for what it is. Go into the urban communities to see what’s going on instead of trying to criticize us – it is what it is. For me it is entertainment. Don’t take it so seriously and literally.
UPTOWN: During last season, you kept audiences laughing with your one-liners and snappy comebacks. Have you always been funny?
Laura: I have no idea. I don’t think I’m funny. I say what I feel. I don’t have time to think about what goes on. I am on the go … I am active and busy. My reflexes are quick due to my children. People take things so seriously. Everything you’re doing, have a good time with it.
