Vanessa sat down with New York magazine and gave readers a behind the scenes look at her life.
On her fashion style (while packing for the Olympics with her Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Rick Owens & J Brand clothes spilling over)
“I’m inspired by Ann Miller and Monica Bellucci. My mom dressed so ladylike, with high-waisted knee-length skirts, nylons, and long tailored coats, always on her way to work.” (As far as Kobe’s style goes) For the longest time I tried convincing Kobe that he should wear things a little more fitted. And for years and years he was like, ‘I don’t feel comfortable, I feel like they rise.’ And now all of a sudden the stylist says it, and it makes sense.”
On her typical day and having NO nannies
“I think people imagine that I sit at home with all the time in the world to do my hair and makeup, but that’s certainly not the case. I’m up at 6:30 in the morning with my kids. I’m taking them wherever they need to go. [I don’t use a nanny.] That’s the way I was raised. [I’ve never missed a sports game or practice of my daughters.]
On pushing Kobe to win
“I love basketball. And I know what goes on behind the scenes, so I have a different perspective on things, but still, I do. 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.”
“Um, yes. We’re working on things.”
On the topic of plastic surgery the rumor goes, “She started freaking out over a few crow’s feet, and the next thing you know she was getting a full facial makeover… she is extremely insecure. She’d do anything to keep Kobe happy.’
A plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn added to the Enquirer:
“Vanessa appears to have undergone some plastic surgery. Her nose is thin with what appears to be scars at the base of each nostril. In some people, this is a telltale sign of a nose job.” Adding that her lips may have been pumped ‘possibly from an injectable filler like Juvederm.’
Vanessa’s rep quickly jumped on the rumors calling them “100 percent not true” and “ridiculous.
Wow. Gotta love it!
