‘Basketball Wives LA’ star Jackie Christie is blogging for HollywoodLife.com, sharing her thoughts about each episode! Read what she has to say below!
Wow! Where do I begin? This season of Basketball Wives LA was a blast, literally! It resembled the fourth of July with all the fire works beginning with crazy Laura and Malysia‘s fist fight they had at the beginning of the season. Imani called Draya worthless by accident, and of course, the incident I had with Tanya. I’m often asked by fans of the show, “Was it all real?” I always answer with a huge YES! At least for me it was, and I want to believe for the other ladies as well. One thing is for sure, it is a time in my life I will try my best to erase from my memory bank asap as I can not deal with blatant fabrications of the truth by any means. So forgetting about it is bliss for me as I do have a forgiving heart.
Never being one to back down from a challenge, well heck the reunion was a whole different story. I still have yet to watch it, but from what little parts I did catch on tv and heard from my friends and family, I held my own and that’s all a girl can ask for when entering hostile territory – or the tigers’ den, so to speak — with just my stilettos and a big ring as a weapon.
But my knight in shinning armor, my hubby Doug, did come to my side at one point and I do recall feeling loved and free when he arrived. It was like nothing else mattered and I didn’t care anymore that I was being attacked by the tigers for just being real and trying to get everyone to be honest and talk things out. I wasn’t in the mood to let them get under my skin. But I knew Doug and I had beautiful plans after and the whole childish mess would be left there on that stage. I was relaxed.
I often told each of them that knowledge is power and throughout the reunion I felt great. I smiled quite a bit because the truth feels good. At least for me it does, and I knew inside that I was being 100 percent honest, and held no grudges against those ladies. Even though I knew they would launch verbal attacks and assaults, I still understood and knew that they were only acting the way they thought they should act. It doesn’t matter if the real truth about their part in the whole situation ever comes to light. I know in my heart that they know that I was the real one from day one. I relished the opportunity to say that to each of them without ever having to lift a finger.
I really only wish the best for all those women and pray their hearts are light, because mine most certainly is.
