‘Basketball Wives LA’ star Jackie Christie is blogging for HollywoodLife.com, sharing her thoughts about each episode! Read what she has to say below!
Hope everyone has recuperated from episode 4 of Basketball Wives LA. It was very special indeed. I cried through almost all of it, as I lost my beautiful mother Cora, to cancer the night before. My heart aches, but I know she is in heaven now. You see my mother is a very spiritual women whom I have learned so very much from and I’m so thankful to have been able to have this past year with her and hug her and tell her how much we all love her. May my mom now rest in peace.
A lot of people didn’t really know much about my husband’s and my many weddings until now, and I hope they felt the deep love we share. I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. This last wedding is definitely my favorite and most special of all 16 weddings we’ve had because we had my mother and family with us via skype! Whom I owe a huge thank you too! As well as Shed Media and VH1 — LOVE YOU GUYS!!! My girlfriends, Laura, Gloria, Imani and Malaysia, makeup artist Dandre Michael, and Doug’s buddies were all there with us too. I wish Kimsha, Tanya and Draya, could also have joined us but it was still beautiful none the less.
Now back to my new favorite show on TV! I recall thinking when I saw Imani and Malaysia enjoying gelato that I felt a sisterhood of sorts building even though it was only for the moment. I was still quite impressed with their conversation and the honesty [they shared] between each other. I’m an avid believer that truth is the only way to be — at all cost!
Draya’s photo shoot was kind of cute, too. I wish I was there to defend myself regarding the whole wedding no show shenanigan she pulled, but hey stay tuned — maybe I will get the chance to talk to her about how I really felt about her not attending our wedding. I tend to get really annoyed when I can’t get right in someone’s face if they are accusing me of any wrong doing. I like to deal with it right then so things don’t have a chance to fester. You know, the mind can play tricks on you.
And seeing Imani with her little ones was a real treat as they are hilarious and cute as can be. It was a lot of special time with the ladies and our families, with a little of the drama that comes with it.
You will have to stay tuned to see what happens as there is much more to come regarding our wedding, the after party, the ladies and more!
