BECAUSE I’M HAPPY
Dwyane Wade’s work ethic must have rubbed off on his wife. Gabrielle Union recently told The AP that she used to be lazy.
“You get complacent, and when the checks are coming in it’s like, ‘Eh, maybe I’ll get to challenge myself next week,’” said the Miami-based actress. “The next thing you know, years have gone by, and you’ve not really done anything that feeds your soul.”
All that has changed now. Starring in BET’s Being Mary Jane as a broadcaster with a lousy love life, is meaty and challenging. “I’ve never been this gratified with my work,” she said. “Ever.”

Caveat: Union said some of the racier sex scenes can get awkward when she’s watching the show with Wade.
DREAM COME TRUE
They’re in a family way, but you won’t see it for the cameras: Former Real Housewives of Miami cast member Lisa Hochstein revealed on social media that she is finally getting the baby she dreamed about after struggling with fertility issues for years.
The petite Canadian and her plastic surgeon husband Lenny Hochstein turned to a surrogate and got lucky. “#blessed,” the former model posted along with three positive pregnancy tests earlier this week. The unnamed woman is past the first trimester mark.
During the Bravo show’s run (2011-2013), Lisa had said she felt “uncomfortable” with the thought of another woman carrying their child, but she obviously reconsidered.
The surrogate may have a tough road ahead. In an October 2013 interview with In Touch magazine, Lisa admitted to being a control freak: “I’m going to be very hands-on. I’ll want to know what she’s doing at all times.”
BRINGING HIS A-GAME
He’s not quitting his day job just yet, but Gabriel O. Fundora is definitely impressing his colleagues over at Roig Lawyers. The attorney will perform with world-renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli along with the Master Chorale of South Florida at the Seminole Hard Rock Saturday and Sunday nights. The married father of two, who lives in Kendall, called it both an honor and a privilege. Not to mention a great feat, considering Fundora has little formal training.
