Among Other Things, Call Gabrielle Union A Strip Club Connoisseur

She got money to blow.

Gabrielle Union

In addition to being mom and wife of the year to her family, these days, Gabrielle Union is making her rounds to promote the follow-up to her first memoir, You Got Anything Stronger? I don't know about you, but Gab's revelations keep proving why she will forever be a BFF in our heads. The best-selling author recently let it slip that she has an unapologetic love for frequenting strip clubs.


And given the fact that sis pulls up with racks instead of just dolla-dolla bills, her bands are bound to make the ladies dance whenever she hits the scene. In a recent visit to Jimmy Kimmel's late night show, the 48-year-old actress let it be known that she's a strip club "connoisseur" among other the other hats she wears in her life.

It's a fact that she goes more in-depth about in her second memoir, no doubt, but she was sure to give Jimmy a little snippet of her pre-pandemic habit. She told the host that she went around "10, 15 times" a year before COVID. While my tax bracket can't relate, Gabrielle revealed that she could spend anywhere between $10,000-20,000 when she visits a strip club.

"You don't really think about it because... booze. And you just want to make sure all the ladies go home with a little something."

And just in case you thought sis wasn't really about that life, Gabrielle made sure to name-drop the infamous Magic City in Atlanta as one of her preferred strip clubs when she's in the A. She also mentioned that she and her hubby Dwyane used to go to strip clubs together in the early stages of their relationship.

These days, Gabrielle says she prefers to go solo dolo or with friends, citing that Dwyane might have been intimidated by her during their "unique" date nights. As a couple, Gabrielle and Dwyane have never strayed away from being open and honest about how they keep their relationship strong. In a 2016 cover story with Ocean Drive, Gabrielle shared the secret behind their marital bliss:

"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... If you have the chance to marry your best friend, I would highly recommend it."

And when asked about what she thought Dwyane appreciated about her, Gabrielle cleverly replied with a mission statement on self-worth:

"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."

Yasss Queen.

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
