If you weren’t already in love with Gabrielle Union-Wade now, you’re going to love her more because of her book We’re Going to Need More Wine. She’s witty, funny, personable, and just down right the shit. It’s funny how we read a book, or watch a movie and we think that gives us some unspoken access to a celebrities life, ironically this book does just that. I felt like I was listening to a good girlfriend tell me her life story.
Without spoiling it for those who still haven’t had the chance to read it, I literally don’t have anything bad to say about it; except I wish it was longer! Gabrielle’s personality spews through this entire book, and you feel not only the love but the pain.
I felt like she was a family member. Sister Nickie learned to become this beautiful, confident, and powerful woman she is. I love you sis. I wish you and your family nothing but success and blessings. I’m rooting for you. Always.
In the words of sis herself,
“And anything I have accomplished, I did so not in spite of being a black woman, but because I am a black woman.”
Gabrielle is the epitome of Black Girl Magic, it’s not even up for debate.
