Let’s catch up with a few of your favorite NBA wives – we won’t call them “Basketball Wives” cause that’s just the title of a reality show, right? This week Kobe and Vanessa Bryant celebrated 13 years of marriage, Chris Bosh’s wife Adrienne was also in Paris, celebrating her 29th birthday with friends courtesy of the Mr. and The First Sports Wives of New York donned PJ’s for charity.
We watched Kobe Bryant hit up the airport before the Lakers closed the books on this nightmare season. The reason, he and his wife Vanessa celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary in Paris. The couple spent their actual anniversary – April 18th, you remember the controversy in 2001 when Kobe got married right before the playoffs kicked off and didn’t invite his family or any of his teammates – “PRIVATELY walking the Palace of Versailles.” Vanessa also had dinner with famed shoe designer, Christian Louboutin.
Adrienne Bosh celebrated her 29th birthday with an actual Parisian tea party, attending the opera and more with friends. Of course she’ll be back in Miami in time to cheer on the hubby and spread love and light for the NBA playoffs.
And earlier in the week, The New York Sports Wives Club – not a real thing, I just made it up. Although they do refer to themselves as New York’s First Ladies but, I digress. Knicks Amaré Stoudemire’s wife Alexis, Giants WR Victor Cruz’s girlfriend Elania Wately and Yankees CC Sabathia’s wife Amber hosted a charity event for “Not For Sale” the charity benefits the fight against modern-day slavery around the world. The event was sponsored by Myx Moscato.
