Kobe Bryant's Latina wife Vanessa reveals the REAL reason she stayed with the cheater

You know how some women say that stuck with their cheating husband "for the kids"? Well, it takes a LOT more than that to satisfy some women! The Latina wife of NBA All-Star and shooting guard for the Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant, Vanessa Bryant, is now saying it's not about the apologies or the pretty jewelry that Kobe's gifted her in the past: it's ALL about his championship rings!

That's right, the real reason Vanessa Bryant is staying with infamous cheating husband Kobe Bryant is all because he's a winner--and she fully expects him to keep on bringing those wins home.

They may have one of the rockiest marriages around (in fact, I've even wondered why she's staying with her cheating hubby), but after their latest reconciliation it's interesting to see that they seem to be on great terms after rekindling their romance. In fact, Vanessa told New York Magazine's Nicki Jhabvala the reason why she's still with her famous husband

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.

I can kind of see her point. I mean, he's definitely won quite a few championship rings in his day (the latest being the gold medal for Team USA during the London Olympics 2012), but is that really the best reason to stay with a cheating husband? I personally don't think I could do what she's doing--then again, she must reap a lot of benefits from his fame and, obviously, so do the kids. Maybe she does know what she's doing, after all.

The more rings he gets the more money he makes, 50% for her when she divorces him when he no longer can play. its not about love its about money money money. She will go for another younger ball player that can bring more  money to her bank account.

UGH--talk about the worst example of a "marriage' EVER. this is 100% a business transaction for her and i hope her daughters dont see it as obviously as everyone else does. at this point, i dont understand why they stay with each other. 50% of a ton of money is still a ton of money.

That's not what she is trying to say. She is saying that all the sacrifice of him being gone better be worth it, meaning that he is doing his job. His job is to win championships, meaning he better be focusing on his work to make all the sacrifice of him not being around worth it. Meaning, if he isn't working hard, that he should retire and be home with her and their daughters, focusing on their relationship and children.

She stays for the benefits and the lifestyle...I would too until the kids are older then I would sue his Butt for half his worth and retire in style.

So sad, money and winning is more important than healthy family values.

She is no worse than Hillary.  In fact, probably one hundred times better as she doesn't deceive herself nor run for President.

It's women like her that make comments like that, that give every woman with a celebrity or not, give them a bad name. Can you say Gold Digger!?!
