Gabrielle Union and Charles Barkley are engaging in a war of words

Dwyane Wade's All-Star selection has caused beef between his wife, actress Gabrielle Union, and TNT's Charles Barkley.

The outspoken NBA analyst said on the air last week that Wade should not have made the Eastern Conference squad. Union did not appreciate Chuck's opinion, so she quickly took to Twitter to send a message.

Barkley replied by saying she shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence as Streep. So Union reiterated her stance that she doesn't think Barkley is knowledgeable this week on "Late Night with Seth Meyers."

"He's like the guy that insists on coming to book club," Union explained, "but didn't read the book, but wants to dominate the conversation, and you're like, 'you don't know what you're talking about. Stop talking.'"

Union also said that she's started a prayer group for Barkley.
