Last night, we were graced with another episode of “Basketball Wives: LA” and although nothing (and I mean NOTHING) can top last week’s episode, this episode came fairly close. Check out some of the highlights below:
Jackie’s therapy session.
Jackie Christie has been having it rough the past couple of weeks. Not only was she beefing with half of the cast, but there was also trouble at home. Her two daughters, Takari and Chantel, weren’t too fond of her and despite the fact that they clearly did not want to speak with any counselors about their mother-daughter relationship, Jackie decided that it would be best (in her mind) to bring a therapist into their home to try and work things out. When Jackie’s daughter’s started talking about their relationship or lack thereof, Jackie was not having it. “There was food in the house, heat in the house, Grandma’s down the hall. That sounds like a damn good mother to me…I don’t wanna be sitting here listening to some nonsense,” Jackie said. It sounded like Jackie’s problem with her girls was similar to her problems with the other basketball wives: she just didn’t listen. The therapist told them that their problems can’t be solved in one day, so everyone left the session feeling angry and worse than before. Great idea, Jackie.
Matt Barnes arrested.
Gloria met up with Brooke and Draya to talk about Matt’s arrest and explained that a particular cop “had it out for Matt.” He approached them while they were out together and not arrested Barnes then claimed he resisted the arrest. The news fueled rumors that he was drunk and violent, which weren’t true, and Gloria wanted to make it clear. This situation did, however, cause Gloria to have a change of heart about their future. Of course she supported Matt but was worried that since he was a free agent at the time, she didn’t know where they would live and what team would pick him up after his arrest. Drama!
Girls weekend in Seattle.
Despite all of Jackie’s family drama, she and the other girls (Malaysia, Laura and Bambi) headed to Seattle for the weekend. They started off the trip with some juicy gossip, and Jackie filled the ladies in on her current drama with her daughters. After hearing Jackie’s side of the story, Laura decided that she would meet with Jackie’s daughter’s to compare stories, or just get in Jackie’s business even further.
Draya and her “lesbian business.”
“Ever since I kissed Bambi, everyone wants to be all up in my lesbian business now,” Draya told cameras. Since Draya and Brooke were now anti-Jackie, they skipped the Seattle trip and spent the weekend together. Draya brought Brooke to her first lesbian bar, and both of them were the center of attention all night. “Next thing I know, the whole table is surrounded with girls,” Brooke said. Could Brooke be switching teams?
Jackie Vs. Laura or Laura Vs. Bambi
Something wasn’t sitting right with Bambi. She was confused about Laura and Jackie’s friendship and didn’t like how Laura was playing both sides of the fence. When she asked Laura what the deal was, Laura told Bambi that she will find out in due time. Could Laura have a few tricks up her sleeve? Bambi decided that she dive head first into the drama and let Jackie in on some of the things that Laura was saying about her behind her back, including the comment that Laura made about how she would feel if Jackie died. When Jackie confronted Laura about it, Laura admitted that what she said was true but then was upset with Bambi that she ran to Jackie and ran her mouth. “Bambi’s your new boo? ‘Cause you got her fired up, she’s ride or die for Jackie,” Laura asked Jackie. It looked like Laura really did have a little plan of her own. She revealed to the cameras that her plan all along was to get Jackie back for last season. “You’re gonna feel how I felt in every aspect. I’mma get you, b—h,” Laura said. Scary.
