I am so hard pressed to find anything good for anyone in this situation — or anything really worth poking fun at — that I am just going to lay out the facts. Then go take a shower because I feel dirty.

Dwight Howard has won a $500,000 judgment against Royce Reed, the mother of his child, TMZ reports (via CBS’s Eye On Basketball).

See, Reed is on VH1’s Basketball Wives and she spoke about her and Howard’s relationship. Which violates the legal gag order between the two. Howard took her to court, and won.

To sum up: Dwight Howard’s lawyers got paid hundreds of dollars an hour to track what the mother of his child said on a cable reality show so they could take her to court over it. Which he won, because she signed an agreement agreeing never to talk about their relationship in public like that.

So, at least Howard has won somewhere recently.

But don’t worry, the kid won’t be a pawn between them.

That’s it, time for a shower.

    I am pretty sure she was paid alot more than 500 grand when she signed the agreemant so why shouldn’t he expect her to honor it? it may seem petty to you but what is the point of signing legal documants if you are not going to honor them? particuarly when you are paid a large sum of money to do it.

      She’s a lottery wife who got on easy street by getting knocked up; this kid has been a pawn since it was conceived. The least she can do is abide by the terms of her lotto agreement.

    So, how did knocking up a team dancer raise the name of God within the league and throughout the world?

    I dont give a crap about what happens in his personal life…

    Kurt – I just want to know if you still think Howard deserves the MVP…

    Because I like my MVP to be capable of carrying his team to a playoff series win.

    What a joke of an opinion.
