Gabrielle Union-Wade on Being a Stepmom to Dwayne Wade’s 3 Boys | Rachael Ray Show

Up first today, we have a guest that’s a triple threat. She is the star of Being Mary Jane, so she’s an actress. She’s a brand new clothing designer, and she’s an author of a book that I have to say makes her a girl after my own heart. It’s called We’re Going to Need More Wine. (audience laughs) Please welcome back to our show the beautiful Gabrielle Union Wade. (upbeat music) (audience applause) A vision in yellow. Hi. How are you? (audience cheers) You look like six o’clock. Well thank you. Straight up and down. Just beautiful. I feel like wine o’clock. I know. Well, it is the title of your book. I’m just here to do you favors and sell this sucker. Cheers to you, my darling. Cheers. Thank you. (audience applause) My first word was vino. I guess I can drink any time. But it’s such a clever, clever name. Thank you. How’d you come up with the name? I wanted the book to feel like an actual conversation that I have with my friends. When we’re either telling tales out of school or really having deep conversations, usually at some point, somebody’s like “Hold up, we’re gonna need more wine.” We’re gonna need more wine (laughs). And that’s why I just want the book to feel like a very honest, open conversation that I’m having with my friends. What women have in common kind of conversations, right? Yeah, yeah. So what do you want people to take away from the book? I want people to feel a sense of connectedness. I think more than anything right now we are so disconnected from each other. Boy, that’s saying something. And there’s so many of us who feel like we are suffering in silence, that we are all alone, that we’re screaming into a hurricane and no one is hearing us. And you’re just reaching out and there’s no one out there grabbing you, saying “I see you. I see your value.” I hear you. I hear you. Right. I see your worth. So I hope people get inspired from this book. I hope people feel a little less alone. And they laugh in this book too. You’re gonna laugh a lot. Just to be clear, you’re gonna laugh a lot. But you’re gonna feel connected, hopefully. (clears throat) I mean, it is called We’re Going to Need More Wine. (audience applause) That’s one of the benefits of drinking wine is that you do laugh a lot. A lot. Instead of cry. Can you guys all see this picture of her in a bikini? Goodness. Can we talk smoking hotness? Now, do you wanna know what birthday is coming up for her? 45. (audience applause) That is just not right. Was it painful to make yourself look like that? (both laugh) That was actually in Greece and we went with a bunch of couples– How was Greece? I’ve never been. Amazing. Was it? We went to Mykonos with, me and my husband and five other couples who celebrate anniversaries around the same time. Oh. Love that. I love an experience. Yeah. And it was so much fun. Yeah. There’s my honey. Oh, there’s the baby. He’s so cute. Look how handsome he is. He’s a cutie pie. What anniversary did you guys– Braces really paid off for both of us, I could say orthdonture has really played a very huge role in both of our lives. What year are you guys on? Three? Three. Three. Yeah. Just little babies. We’re just getting started. Just getting started. Yeah. What sold you on him? He’s cute. He really is cute. He’s very cute and he’s got a nice butt. And he’s a great dad. I love that you admire that. Yeah. I admire that in a couple of my friends. I’m like “Wow, they’re so good at that.” I feel like a bad dog parent sometimes, so I’m just knocked out– He’s actually become– Oh that’s you and the kids? Yeah. The boys. They’re– Do they love stepmom? Well, I hope so. Or is it just like I made friends? I hope so. But I mean how does that relationship work for you? I know you write a little bit about it. Yeah, a lot in the book. A, being a step-parent is incredibly difficult. You never quite know your space. You’re walking on a fence. Yeah. No one ever thanks the stepmom, no matter what you do, no one ever is like “And I just wanna say a shout out to, “And I’m gonna buy my step mama a mansion when I make it.” It’s never that. It always feels like if they get an A, it’s in spite of your terrible step-parenting. They somehow navigated their way around you towards an A and if they get an F, well, it’s your fault. (audience laughs) Your child cannot retain any information because of your terrible step-parenting. But it’s also awesome knowing that even without any outside validation, that you’re a consistent, compassionate, loving adult who puts the kid’s joy and their peace of mind and their innocence first. Right. And that is always (audience applause) really rewarding. Gabrielle. Give it up. (audience applause)

  5. Did you spend a lot of money for Christmas…. Do you want free money if so click here

  6. She's been learning how to give herself wholeheartedly and selflessly to another human being and I feel she will have her own soon. She seems more settled and at ease with her self. She has nothing left to prove she is ready. She deserves a child.

  7. She looks so HAPPY! Marriage can make you look like that I do,no to be honest you have to love your husband and y'all KIDS, become as one and love them as your own I think that's great!

  15. Rachel Ray kept interrupting, then the camera people would pan to the most awkward disinterested people they could find in the audience, two seconds later it was over. WTF?!

  16. Girl wear that yellow dress! I. would. like to see a different hairstyle with it! Please tell us What you're taking and using to look so young and beautiful ?

  17. You can see her adams apple at about 2:24-27…I'm sure that's why she loves playing with his butt and can't have children

  18. I do admire Gabrielle since the age of cheerleaders era, by the way, I am also Gabriel. You are a beauty queen darling! I hope to live seeing you looking the same at seventy-five. Much love.

  19. It is SHAMEFUL how people celebrate these celebrities especially when they steal husbands to get one. she is a hot mess!

  22. Recently, I teas that Gabrielle refuses to acknowledge the son Wade had when he was taking a six monyh sabbatical from his lady. I find this hard to believe but if it is true, why would Gabrielle take this out on an innocent little child?

  23. Is Rachel drunk ? Why did she interrupted her so much ? This wasnโ€™t a good interview at all. Iโ€™m just glad Gabriel is such a nice and down to earth person

  24. This girl is always flawless go girl๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜and I like the sound of that "Gabrielle Union Wade"๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
