Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade Share Their Ultimate Deal Breaker

The actress says watching Scandal without the other is "grounds for dismissal."

Published February 14, 2013

Actress Gabrielle Union recently sat down with People TV to talk about hosting the BET Honors and what Valentine's Day might hold for her and boyfriend Dwyane Wade, which could be anything from a lavish surprise to a quiet night in.

"Every year he kind of tops himself," Union says of the Miami Heat star. "Kind of setting some high standards there, buddy. So I have no idea what the plans are. I know that I will be working in Atlanta and he's not working. So let's see what happens. Is there going to be a private jet that comes to my set? I don't know! It's an idea though."

When the couple decides to stay in, Union says they like to settle in with their favorite popcorn, Garrett's, which combines caramel corn with cheddar popcorn. And it's not date night without an episode of Scandal. Union and Wade love the series so much, they've turned it into a deal breaker of sorts.

"It's our favorite show. If one of us watches an episode before the other, it's grounds for dismissal. So if you see some random breakup, it's because I've watched Scandal. I'm to the curb if I dare watch an episode without him," she says.
