We’re Going to Need More Wine


We’re going to Need More Wine by Gabrielle Union is hilarious. I laughed out loud constantly. To me, she’s famous for 10 Things I Hate About You. She’s also in Bring it On and has had appearances on Friends, Star Trek, 7th Heaven and many many other things. But her stories are mainly about her life with those acting gigs interspersed here and there. She talks very frankly about many things. She was raped while working in a Payless Shoes when she was 19 years old – I will never go to a Payless Shoes ever again. She talks about that and how it gave her serious anxiety from then on, and even now that she’s 44 years old. She also talks about her and her husband‘s three boys and how they raise them as black men. She has a unique perspective, especially from mine, and I appreciated everything she had to say. I highly recommend it and I guarantee you will enjoy it.
