Laura: Absolutely not. I am not a show hopper. I started in LA and thatâ€™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 — donâ€™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 didnâ€™t talk to my sister. Weâ€™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. Sheâ€™s moved into the acting thing and is doing great.
UPTOWN: What are your thoughts on Royce Reedâ€™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. Itâ€™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 whatâ€™s going on instead of trying to criticize us â€“ it is what it is. For me it is entertainment. Donâ€™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 donâ€™t think Iâ€™m funny. I say what I feel. I donâ€™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 youâ€™re doing, have a good time with it.
