Gabrielle Union Covers Ocean Drive Magazine, Talks Being Financially Independent


43 and fabulous, honey!

Gabrielle Union just doesn’t age and I am not mad at it. She is on top of the world right now. A successful tv show, a beautiful family and a wonderful marriage.

If you follow Gabrielle on social media, you will see that she rides for her husband. She is pretty much at every game and has no problem calling refs out for giving Dwayne Wade a bad call. In the May/June issue, Gabby talks about marrying her best friend, being financially independent and more.


On having her own financial independence in marriage to Dwyane Wade: “He appreciates my independence, and my high credit score, and the fact that if I want a Chanel bag, I’m not asking for his Amex; I’ve got my own.”

On her happy marriage: “If you have good, effective, honest communication, you can handle any issue or problem in a relationship. D is literally my best friend. We really, really enjoy spending time with each other more than anybody else. Well, with D, maybe I’m tied with LeBron! But I’m definitely his favorite female! If you have the chance to marry your best friend, I would highly recommend it.”

On Hollywood’s lack of diversity: “Half the time, [African Americans] don’t even get the opportunity to fail, at least let me audition, so you can say I just wasn’t good enough, but most times black actors can’t even get in the door. The idea that the playing field has ever been equal is a farce. With leaps and bounds of advances, it’s still grossly unequal—and that goes for the Latino, Asian, Middle Eastern, and LGBT communities as well. We’ve made strides, but if Hollywood is really going to mirror the world that it’s catering to, we have a long, long way to go.”
