Exclusive: Gabrielle Union Talks Wedding Bling & Channeling Tamar Braxton For “Top Five”
Gabrielle Union is still glowing from her recent nuptials to NBA star Dwyane Wade … and it isn’t from her massive 8.5 carat wedding ring she calls “Big mama”.
HipHollywood sat down with the actress while promoting her latest film Top Five where she also dished on how she’s settling in with her new hubby. “We’re in the middle of two different remodels, on two different coasts, so that’s kind of where we are at right now,” explained Union.
But if you think the couple is expanding their homes in preparation for a new baby, think again. Union tells us she’s focusing on work, like her role in Top Five where she plays Chris Rocks’ fiancé, a feisty reality star, whom she modeled after Tamar Braxton and Kim Kardashian.
“The character is written as this girl who has a really popualr reality show with her sisters,” explained Union. “So it kind of leaves you with two families the Kardashian’s and the Braxton’s. I know Tamar and I know Toni and I know Kim, and I wanted to show elements of those ladies that we don’t see on TV like their compassion and their human side and the fact that they aren’t willing to share every single thing and exploit every single thing for ratings.”
Top Five is in theaters December 12.
