'Football Wives' Chanita Foster Dishes About Groupies And Basketball Vs. Football Wives

Wife of NFL veteran George Foster, Chanita Foster, doesn't mince words. With her kind heart and tough exterior, the VH1 Football Wives cast member has made herself quite the star of the show. Black Voices caught up with the brutally honest philantropist and entrepeneur to discuss what it takes to be a football wife, what she considers to be a groupie and the difference between a football wife and a basketball wife.



 

How did you meet your husband?
I met my husband putting together a Steve Madden tournament; he was one of the invited athletes. We shared jokes about him being from Denver and eventually he asked me, 'Do you want to date me or work for me?' I was focused on work so I said work for him, but he asked me to go on one date, and the rest is history.

What do you consider a groupie?
A woman who wants a man based solely on his job. There are women who are doctors and lawyers, and are still groupies. Women try and lie and say it's a preference, but what are the thoughts and choices factored in to have that 'preference?' It makes sense for a woman who is some type of athlete to have that preference, maybe because they are looking for someone who can relate to their own athletic lifestyle. But women who never dribbled a ball in their life and want to date someone just because they are an athlete, that's a groupie.

What do you think is the major difference between being a football wife versus a basketball wife?
The payout. Money difference is huge, you can't even put us in the same category. If someone is driving a Bentley in the NFL they are 1 of 4 percent; NBA players have 100 percent guaranteed money. In the NFL, the payout is more incentive based.

What about all the cheating we hear comes with dating an athlete?
A basketball wife has more opportunities to get cheated on than a football wife. The NBA has 84 games a year, that's 42 opportunities [for a basketball player] to do what they want in another city. The NFL has a total of 16 games, and eight of them you leave on Saturday, play, and come back on Sunday. Basketball players can have a game, and then too much time and opportunity to be promiscuous, especially in cities like LA, Miami, and Atlanta where they arrive a week and a half before they have to play.

Is being a wife of an athlete over glamorized?
On the show, people don't want to talk about the things that are real. I may be the girl that can walk into a boardroom and negotiate million dollar deals, but I'm from Detroit. I want to relate to real people, and show where I'm from, [that] you can come from anything and be successful. I love my husband. I wouldn't trade my husband, my kids, or my life for anyone's 50,000 square foot house, their last name, and all the misery that comes with it for nothing in the world. I promise you.

Tyler, The Creator Reacts To Drake Getting Booed At Camp Flog Gnaw

Tyler, the Creator is speaking up about Drake receiving boos at the 2019 Camp Flog Gnaw Festival. The former Odd Future member took to his Twitter account to share his thoughts on the incident and address the reports of the Toronto native making an early departure from the event''s stage.

"I thought bringing one of the biggest [sic] artists on the f**king planet to a music festival was fire!" he exclaimed in all caps in a tweet on Monday afternoon (Nov. 11). "But flipside, a lil tone deaf knowing the specific crowd it drew. Some created a narrative in their head and acted out like a**holes when it didn't come true and I don't f**k with that."

Tyler continued by pointing out that although there were boos "in the front area" by folks who were "mad rude" and came off as "entitled," most attendees were having a great time. "That sh*t was like mob mentality and cancel culture in real life and I think that sh*t is f**king trash."

"Ni**a did feel no ways! That song is beautiful!" remarked Tyler about Drizzy's attempt to fully perform "Feel No Ways" a deep cut off his Views album. "Most guys don't do album cuts! Thank you, Aubrey! Like, I love that song and thought that would never happen....He really did that for me and I appreciate it because he did not have to come at all. See our worlds come together was so great in the theory."

Tyler went on to add a positive perspective to the whole incident and tweeted, "But hey man sh*t happens, all jokes aside, sh*t lowkey funny HAHAHA" he added. "Aside from that, hope everyone had a good time. Again, no [sic] arrests. No bullsh*t, man. A lot of people enjoyed it, thanks again!"

YG Brings Out Stormy Daniels For His "F*ck Donald Trump" Ritual

Rapper YG snagged adult film star Stormy Daniels to dish out some shade directed at President Donald Trump.

On Sunday night (Nov. 10), YG called on the porn star for his usual ritual of inviting someone on to disrespect Trump before going into his Nipsey Hussle-assisted "Fuck Donald Trump."

"My name is Stormy Daniels, and I'm the reason Donald Trump is fucked!" Daniels told the audience. For his part, YG appeared to suggest that he didn't know who Stormy was, but needless to say, it's unlikely that's actually the case.

Stormy Daniels is the adult film star whom President Trump allegedly told his former lawyer Michael Cohen to pay off in order to conceal an alleged affair Trump and Daniels had during the early years of his marriage to Melania Trump. Since that revelation, Daniels has intermittently shaded Trump, and this is just the latest example.

While Daniels had no qualms about denouncing the polarizing president, there has been at least one fan who turned down the chance to do so. A few weeks ago, a fan who was called up to the stage at YG's set at the 2019 Mala Luna Music Festival in San Antonio, Texas declined to scream out the song's hook. After that, YG asked him to leave the stage. Video of the interaction went viral and even prompted a response from the White House.

"Another example of the tolerant left," White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a sarcastic tone.

Drake Gets Booed At Tyler, The Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw Festival

Drake experienced a night he'd probably want to forget after getting boo'd off stage at Tyler, the Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw Festival in the wee hours of Monday morning (Nov. 10).  In footage making rounds on social media, the 6 God, who is arguably the biggest rapper in the world, can be seen pleading with the L.A. crowd:

"Like I said, I'm here for you," and, "If you want me to keep going, I'll keep going."

The "Mob Ties" rapper was met with a fusillade of boos and “nos,” which resulted in him leaving the stage. "It's been love. I go by the name of Drake, thank you for having me,” he says as he walks off, reportedly ending his set 20 minutes early.

Apparently, Drake was a victim of some fake news. An Instagram Live recording led concertgoers to believe that Frank Ocean, was set to perform. But even that news wasn't and hasn't been confirmed.

See the comments and videos below.
