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?

This woman is ridiculous at best! Gold-digger? Please! Kobe, whether totally faithful to her or not over the years, should be commended for still going home to her! It can't be easy for him.

She's a idiot plain & simple. Anyone who stays with their husband after he cheats AND is accused of rape an then cheats again clearly only has one thing on their mind: money. She's no better than he is and should disappear. What a sad excuse for a woman and role model for their children!
