Exclusive: This Will Make You Smile … The Real Reason Why Laura Govan Cut Her Hair!



If you follow reality star Laura Govan on social media, you know that several months ago the beauty went from long locks to a short, sexy hairdo. And while the star is rocking the business out of her new look, there was actually a reason behind the shocking cut. WARNING: BEFORE YOU CONTINUE READING, GET A TISSUE.

While on the red carpet for Chris Paul’s CP3 fundraising event in Beverly Hills, Govan shared with HipHollywood that chopping off her hair was simply a teaching moment for her daughter. “My daughter, she has a different textured type of hair and she gets it from her dad. She was asking me about the length of my hair and it was down to almost my butt. I told her ‘you know what, hair is not important.’ She said ‘really?’ I said ‘yeah, I’ll show you.'”

Govan continued, “I cut it off. I took a shaver and I shaved the side. She thought I was crazy but she’s eight and I had to explain to her that hair doesn’t make who you are. I wanted her to know that beauty and who you are is more than your hair and your looks. It’s about how you act, the things you do, the kindness, the ‘I can be a b*tch but I am really, really naturally nice all the time.’ I just want to teach her things”

The reality star admitted, “I didn’t have a damn clue what I was doing. I didn’t know how this sh*t was going to look, I didn’t know how it was going to come out.”
Govan’s four children are with former NBA star, Gilbert Arenas.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
