Just weeks after reality star Toya Wright’s two brothers were murdered in New Orleans, Basketball Wives LA star Angel Love lost her younger brother to gun violence in the same city.

These two dear friends probably never imagined mourning the loss of their siblings within weeks of each other — but suffice it to say, both women have leaned on each other for support.

“We try to support each other, like, if I’m going through my hard times, I’m like, ‘Girl, today I woke up feeling real bad.’ And she would tell me, ‘Yeah, it was a rough day for me too,'” Love told us exclusively. “We would pray together and I would just let her know, ‘I’m here. We gonna pray together. Imma pray for you, you gonna pray for me, and through strength we will overcome this hard time in our lives.'”

She continued, “It’s been rough. That’s my baby brother, the only boy, and he had so much potential in life. It’s just sad to see his life being taken so fast at a young age. Something really valuable and precious in my life was taken away from me.”

Love also shared with HipHollywood that, just days after the death of her brother, her grandmother, whose health had been declining for months, also passed away. “I remember her saying, ‘God accept my grandson in heaven,'” she said while struggling to hold back tears.

An emotional Love added, “They both are my angels … They are looking over us. We all will meet again.”

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”



It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
