Vanessa Bryant Claims She’s Living The Fab Life, We Beg To Differ

|

Through the years, we’ve followed the highs and (very) lows of Kobe and Vanessa Bryant’s relationship. But despite how we may view this twosome, the only opinions that matter are their own, right? In a recent interview with The Cut, Vanessa, who’s always been icily quiet, reveals that she’s living the life you’ve only dreamed of with her gold medal-winning husband. Well, Mrs. Bryant, we highly doubt your life is all you’re proclaiming it to be, but in fairness, we’re game for combing through the history of your relationship to put this debate to rest. (You’re welcome.)

Low
Despite her uncomfortable shoe choices, Vanessa dutifully wakes up at 6:30 a.m. (gasp!) to care for her two daughters, without the assistance of a nanny.
Winner: High. We’d kill for a pair of those Louboutins.

Low
What’s not so perky? Having your fellow basketball wives have to tell you about your husband’s infidelity.

Kobe and Vanessa met on the set of a video shoot when she was still in high school. “He’d come to school to get me in a black Mercedes, and flood the school with roses,” Vanessa says. They became engaged six months later.
Low
Vanessa filed for divorce 10 years into their marriage. While they haven’t officially called it quits, Vanessa stands to rake in $150 million of Kobe’s assets if they go through with the divorce.
Winner: Tie. Sounds like a win-win situation to us.

The final verdict: Vanessa’s life won’t incite envy in anyone we know, but maybe our priorities are all messed up. Keep doing you, Vanessa! It’ll all work out in one way or 150 million others.
