Gabrielle Union’s “Being Mary Jane” press tour landed her in the hot seat with Matt Lauer on “TODAY.” See what she said about her long-distance marriage inside and check out Gugu Mbatha-Raw on the cover of Town & Country magazine.
Rocking a Suno floral sheath dress, Sergio Rossi pumps and Kavant and Sharart Jewelry, Gabrielle Union entered Rockefeller Center this morning with a huge smile on her face.
The newlywed has a lot to smile about since her hit series “Being Mary Jane” (which has already been renewed for a third season) returned to BET this week.
During her segment with Matt, Gabby met TODAY’s service dog Wrangler and revealed which news anchor she used to create Mary Jane’s mystic. “‘I’m obsessed with Soledad O’Brien and that’s who I sort of patterned her after. Soledad has an amazing life as far as we can tell and Mary Jane – she just can’t get it right.”
‘I would like to think I’ve adapted some of the more believable qualities of respected anchors. But because we don’t know what happens in your lives really, I made her a hot mess.”
Gabby, who tapes “BMJ” in Atlanta, also discussed her marriage to Dwyane Wade and how she makes it work. “I come home every weekend. I fly back and forth. I fly wherever that is or I’ll fly home and hang out with the kids. We figure it out and make it work and a lot of compromise.’
