*Over the seasons, “Basketball Wives” has received a ridiculous amount of attention, mostly bad. But Laura Govan says that’s exactly what fuels the popularity of the show.

The reality television star says people should lighten up about the show, explaining that it’s simply entertainment.

“For people to boycott only brings more attention to the show. It is entertainment. Take it for what it is. Go into the urban communities to see what’s going on instead of trying to criticize us. It is what it is,” she told Uptown magazine.

She cautioned audiences not to take anything on the show seriously.

Now that she and her family have relocated to Miami, some wonder if she’ll stick with the show. She assures location isn’t a big deal, so “Basketball Wives: LA” is where she’ll stay.

“I am not a show hopper. I started in L.A., and that’s where I plan on staying. Me and my sister [Gloria Govan] pitched that show in L.A. I will always be there to support that show,” she said.

Speaking of her sister, the two have had some rough patches in their relationship, but Laura insists there’s nothing for fans to worry about.

“There were times where I didn’t talk to my sister. We’re not trying to sugarcoat anything. I think most people can relate because a lot of people go through what we go through,” she said. “If we are beefing or not, I still have her back.”

As far as the new season and her fellow cast mates, Laura has squashed the beef with Malaysia Pargo, who she had a physical altercation with last year. This time around, she’s going in with a clear mind and no beef, but will keep her guard up.
