Gabrielle Union fires back at Charles Barkley: 'I've formed a prayer circle for him'
Gabrielle Union took about a week to respond to Charles Barkley’s jab at her acting skills — but respond she did.
Union was a guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers Wednesday and went full-steam ahead at Sir Charles.
“I’ve formed a prayer circle for him,” Union told Meyers of Barkley. “So, he’ll be fine.”
Union added some advice for Chuck: “Stop talking.”
Last week, Barkley said Union’s husband, Dwyane Wade, didn’t deserve to be an All-Star. Union responded on Twitter, questioning Barkley’s credibility since he hadn’t won a Championship.
Forgive Charles. .. Kenny Smith is a 2x champion & his opinion is most sound… it's like me talkin bout Meryl Streep but I ain't won nuthin

Barkley responded, saying Union shouldn’t mention her and Meryl Streep in the same sentence. (Except that was Union’s point in the first place.)
“He’s like the guy who like insists on coming to Book Club but didn’t read the book,” Union said. “But also wants to dominate the conversation.”
All Meyers could do was laugh.
Inside the NBA returns tonight at 8 p.m. ET.
