Vanessa Bryant: I'm No Gold Digger!

by at . Comments

Vanessa Bryant may not be a gold-digging, domineering basketball wife ... but she gave a quote earlier this week that certainly came off that way.

Regarding husband Kobe Bryant, she told New York Magazine, "I certainly would not want to be married to somebody that can't win championships."

"If you're sacrificing time away from my family and myself for the benefit of winning championships, then winning a championship should happen every single year."

Yeah. Probably not the best word choice. Vanessa is now setting the record straight, clarifying to TMZ that she loves and supports Kobe, no matter what.

"I'm sad to hear that some of the comments in my New York Magazine interview are being misconstrued and taken out of context," says Vanessa Bryant.

"I have been with Kobe for 13 years. I accepted his marriage proposal PRIOR to him winning any of his 5 championships with his teammates."

"I have and will continue to support my husband’s dreams. For anyone to think otherwise is wrong. It is not about being married to a ‘winner.'"

"It is about our sacrifice as a family."

Kobe and Vanessa got engaged in 2000, the year he won his first NBA title, so you can't argue with her there, and she took him back after he allegedly cheated more than once. Basically you gotta cut the female Bryant some slack ... right?

Vanessa Bryant: Digging for gold?


Unlike most basketball wives these days this girl has accomplished nothing on her own and doesn't have her own identity other than being Kobe's wife although he has numerous extramarital affairs. She is aging, is uneducated and isn't even a good role model or mother for her 2 young girls. She IS a Gold Digger! Most definitely!


Some people marry for love some people marry for money. If winning Championships is all she cares about then, SURE she's a Gold Digger, Championships bring $$$$$$(endorsements)....


No, I don't consider Vanessa n gold digger, she fell n love w/ Kobe & w/ that she hs decided 2 ride it out w/ he Boo...Happens everyday n r world jus so happens that, Kobe's situation ws publicized!


She seems to be alot of work. Like it takes ALOT to keep this broad happy. Even if she were to divorce him she'd still walk away banking. 2 kids and more than likely spousal support. Some people call her a Gold Digger but some would also call her smart!
How many women on here can honestly say they wouldnt do the same if they were handed the life style she has? If you say no your a LIAR!


Juan.... You just sound bitter and jealous!?! People who hate like you are just angry because you didn't get what they want out of life. You're just SAD! Did a white woman laugh at your short body and tiny penis?


Vanessa Bryant deserves every gold nugget she gets she has earned it. The only reason she is still with that cheater is because HE begs her to stay. She married for love not interest and she has put up with his BS because HE promises to change his nasty ways. Vanessa also thinks about her kids and what a nasty divorce would do to them...


I love how men will call women Gold diggers. Would Koby marry 200lb woman? N.O. No! As long as men are only out for Hot Women then women love them for their money! Every body has their standard's don't judge!!!!!! Hefner deserves gold diggers.


...imma keep it 100. She obviously has made the decision to stay with him for security N stability....its not that she diggs for gold necessarily but she wants to keep that "life" she N their children have grown accustomed to. She may love him N he may love her but @ the end of the day its about their family....some people stay together for the kids N some just wanna go their seperate ways N be happy for their case..theyve chosen to stick it out for the kids...who knows what will happen. Only time will tell....until then keep winning them championships Kobe!! Lol...But dont get it a SPURS FAN!!!!!!


go for gold vanessa!


Wrong answer "Juan"! Asian women are the biggest golddiggers and they treat asian men like poop!! The asian woman of america will
trample 30 asian men to get to 1 white man and suck him dry.Asian girls dont even look my way theyre too busy with a white cock in their mouths.
Sad but true.I date hispanic only now.
