In addition to Being Mary Jane and starring in films like Think Like A Man Too (out Friday), Gabrielle Union somehow finds time to show up to NBA games on the regular. It helps that she’s engaged to Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, but our girl has always been athletic. Back in 2007 she was interested in dating dudes in the sports world, but not necessarily the one who eventually put a ring on it (sorry, D!).
In this vintage interview, VH1 caught up with Ms. Union on the carpet for Black Girls Rock in 2007. Considering she’s beautiful and talented, she could likely snag any available man she wants. So who was her big crush back in the day? Herman Edwards, former coach of the Kansas City Chiefs…
Ahem, that’s former Philadelphia Eagles star and current ESPN football analyst Herman Edwards. But isn’t he a little old for her? “I don’t even know, I don’t care. He’s well preserved,” she explained. As a Jets fan, I can say Gab certainly knows how to pick ’em. Check out the vintage clip above and decide for yourself whether or not D. Wade should adopt some of his own “Hermisms” in the bedroom to keep his lady happy.
