What can we say? Mrs. Union-Wade is an open book.

Gabrielle Union

Gabrielle Union continues to open up about her life with her new book, You Got Anything Stronger? The actress details her harrowing journey to motherhood, how she felt about husband Dwyane Wade getting another woman pregnant while they were on a break and now she's opening up about the time in her life once she divorced her first husband.


Gabrielle was married to NFL star Chris Howard for five years and ultimately broke up due to her husband's cheating. The L.A's Finest star detailed her marriage to Chris in her first book, We're Going to Need More Wine, where she also revealed his bizarre proposal and their wedding, in which she ignored all the red signs.

However, in her second book, she reflected on what happened after her divorce, which involved a bucket list of men.

During her recent book tour stop in Atlanta, Gabrielle sat down with her friend and music manager Chaka Zulu and recalled the time she shared the list with him.

"So I got divorced and like other divorced people, you have a mental bucket list. I had a bucket list of diddles. I was like, here is my deep, what do they call it, Red Sea scrolls of gentleman callers I would like to check their [availability] on, check their pulse and Chaka was like, 'about 99.9% of that list are f--k boys and I was like, 'yes exactly.'"

The Being Mary Jane star assured her friend that she was ready to take on f-boys despite his warnings.

"I feel tall enough to enjoy this ride. I will strap in and I will hold my arms up and I'll buy the picture at the end of the ride."

While neither one of them revealed names from the bucket list, it would appear that her happily ever after was closer than she expected.

She divorced her husband in 2006 and met Dwyane in 2007. Although they were just friends at first, they began dating and got engaged in 2013.

Now, they have been married for seven years, she is a bonus mom to his kids from previous relationships and they share a two-year-old daughter together.

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.
