Gabrielle Union stopped by the Arsenio Hall show on Monday to spill some wedding tea!
The ‘Being Mary Jane’ actress revealed that she and fiance‘ Dwyane Wade have agreed to sign a pre-nup to protect their assets, not throwing a bridal shower and also explained why there won’t be any bridesmaids at her wedding.
The couple also plans on making a lot of wedding enemies because their invitation list will be hell short and there aren’t even any groomsmen! Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
On signing a pre-nup:
“For this marriage, the biggest difference between this and the last marriage will be a prenup at my insistence. When you have your own stuff you don’t need to worry about anybody else’s stuff. So everyone should go into the relationship knowing, I’m here for you and you’re here for me. And the reality is, I’ve never seen Dwyane balance a check book. So I got to protect my stuff. It’s just the wave of the future. Protecting your stuff.”
On having a small wedding:
“There will be NO bridesmaids or groomsmen. I’m not trying to wrangle a bunch of broads. Somebody wants one type of dress, somebody wants something else, you start to not like them after a couple months. So yeah. And we’re older. This is the second time around. It’s us and the kids. We’re just riding out. Just us.
There’s a lot of people that think they’re coming. And they’re not.[…][Dwyane’s] the executioner. He’s like, ‘Let’s go through your list…absolutely not.’ I’m like, ‘Our cousin?’ And he’s like, ‘No.’ If you’re not about us, and we don’t both have a relationship with you, you’re not going to make it. So if we were [partying together] at Magic City in Atlanta, you’re probably not coming.
Union, who divorced her first husband, NFLer Chris Howard, in 2005, also chatted about what she will be doing differently:
“Well the last time, I just wrote checks. I was working. I had a wedding planner. I showed up like, ‘Oh that’s nice, who picked that out?’ I [was] not apart of it, but the pastor who married me the first time, he didn’t even get my name right. He refused to come to the rehearsal dinner and then didn’t say my name correctly. So the whole vows — we got married in New Orleans — he said, ‘Do you [GAE-brielle…’] And I was like, ‘I, GAE-brielle…’ I pronounced my own name incorrectly so that should have been a sign this isn’t gonna work.
