Jackie Christie Talks Draya, Says She & The Rest Of The Cast Aren’t Bullies
Viewers were surprised during Monday night’s episode of Basketball Wives: LA when Jackie Christie revealed her willingness to overlook Draya‘s past and work on a friendship with the rumored groupie and video model, particularly after last week’s confrontation between the two. But according to Jackie, we didn’t see everything that occurred during the ladies’ showdown at Beso at which time Draya was confronted with a police report that accuses her of child neglect. In a recent interview with CherryOnTop.com, she said:
“See a lot of people didn’t get to see everything that was being discussed. It comes off like I was being a bully, and it seemed as though we were all just coming down on her, but there were a lot of things that was edited out. Draya wasn’t crying from what I was saying to her. A lot of things were talked about and said throughout the whole conversation, and yes, I am crazy about my husband, but who wouldn’t be? But I wasn’t just saying it to Draya in a way that came off to be aggressive, even though that is how it may have appeared. Yes, I do have a strong personality, but I also am a loving and caring person.”
To many viewers, when it comes to Draya, Jackie and the rest of the ladies come off as bullies, but according to the mother of three, that couldn’t be further from the truth. She told CherryOnTop.com:
“The biggest misconception is that we are mean and bullies, and we don’t like Draya, but that is not true. We all have something to offer; it’s a lot of judging that goes on, especially because of the way things seem on TV. But once you get to know us as a whole, we all are not bullies and are caring, compassionate women. But we are not bullies—we all are really good people once you get to know us.”
As for Kimsha Artest and Tanya Williams, both of whom have been absent from the show since the second episode, Jackie said she misses both ladies, but revealed that because of all the filming they did, we may possibly see them again in future episodes:
“I like both of them. I do miss their presence on the show—they are going to come back on a few of the future episodes. We stopped filming now, but they did do a lot of filming separate from myself, because a lot of times we don’t film together. But I do like both of them; I would love to see them be a part of the show again in the future.”
This show may be one of my biggest guilty pleasures right now (damn I hate myself for that).
