Vanessa Bryant may not be a gold-digging, domineering basketball wife … but she gave a quote earlier this week that certainly came off that way.
Regarding husband Kobe Bryant, she told New York Magazine, “I certainly would not want to be married to somebody that can’t win championships.”
“If you’re sacrificing time away from my family and myself for the benefit of winning championships, then winning a championship should happen every single year.”
Yeah. Probably not the best word choice. Vanessa is now setting the record straight, clarifying to TMZ that she loves and supports Kobe, noMore >
Kobe Bryant’s wife Vanessa is reportedly livid with the NBA star over pics of him partying with women in Spain last week, but is standing by him … for now.
Vanessa Bryant flew to watch him play in the London Olympics as planned.
Sources close to Vanessa say she is “furious” and “embarrassed” over the photos of Kobe chatting up women at a party last week in Barcelona.
Here’s one TMZ photo of Kobe and the girls in question at a nightclub:
Reportedly, Vanessa’s anger at Kobe is not because she thinks he was putting it to those girls, but for being in a potentially embarrassingMore >
It’s pretty much accepted as fact that Kobe Bryant cheated on wife Vanessa on more than one occasion and that his infidelity led to her divorce filing last Friday.
What’s unclear is who the other woman was – but Jessica Burciaga says it’s not her.
Rumors pegged Playboy Playmate and Miss February 2009 Jessica as the alleged mistress that was in the middle of it all, but she says it’s simply not the case.
Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce after an affair she heard about through the NBA wife rumor mill, believing that to be the last straw. It wasn’t with Jessica, though.

Vanessa Bryant is positioned to make out like a bandit in her divorce from Kobe Bryant, in large part due to the couple’s apparent lack of a prenuptial agreement.
Coupled with 10 years of marriage, her settlement should be upwards of $75 million – half the L.A. Lakers guard’s fortune – along with support for their daughters.
Vanessa Bryant’s mom told the Los Angeles Times that the couple did not sign a prenuptial agreement when they wed – entitling Vanessa to half of their assets.
Estimates put Kobe Bryant’s net worth at $150 million. The NBA’s highest-paid player, he earned $24.8 millionMore >
Kobe Bryant can blame Basketball Wives for getting caught cheating.
Not the stars of VH1′s Basketball Wives – none of whom are actually married, and one of whom isn’t even involved with a basketball player – mind you. We mean actual wives of teammates, and other NBA squads. Let’s just say that people talk.
Vanessa Bryant caught Kobe cheating – not Elin Nordegren style, but she did find out about his infidelity when talk of his extracurricular sexual exploits increased in frequency among her fellow spouses, according to a TMZ report.

L.A. Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant appeared to use a homophobic slur while cursing out an NBA ref last night, and a gay rights group is justifiably livid.
In the third quarter of L.A.’s matchup with the Spurs, Kobe got a technical foul. Clearly upset, he appeared to call Bennie Adams a “F**king f**got.”
The Lakers say they can’t confirm what was said, but it looks obvious. An announcer even said, “You might wanna take the cameras off of him” …
In the wake of this incident, the Human Rights Campaign called it “a disgrace for Kobe Bryant to use such horriblyMore >
For the first time in years, Woods no longer holds the title of America’s most popular sports star. Not by himself, anyway. NBA star Kobe Bryant is now tied.
Rising from fourth place last year, Kobe rose into a statistical dead heat with Tiger in a Harris Interactive poll, which Woods has won every year since 2006.
Woods’ affair with Rachel Uchitel and countless others became huge news last year, and he has yet to regain the form that made him the world’s #1 golfer.
He hasn’t shown much respect for the game, either.
