Jackie and Tami may have come close to squaring up in earlier episodes of Basketball Wives, but their bond seems to have been repaired (for now) in this bonus clip.
During their Palm Springs pow-wow, Jackie joins Tami outside for a smoke break and the two get to chopping it up about their love lives. Tami reveals that she and Reggie, who is 17 years her junior, are still happily in love (and of course, we know the same is true of Jackie and Doug.) Mrs. Christie tips her hat to Tami for finding a strong (and younger) man who can handle her feisty personality and isn’t intimidated by the age difference.
“People are always riding him, talking about ’oh, you with your grandma,’ or ’oh, you’re with your auntie.’ He said, ’I don’t care what none of these people say.'”
Jackie, a mother of three and grandmother of four, knows all about the jabs that come with dating a younger man. Even though Doug gets the same kind of flack as Reggie, she’s mastered the art of laughing off the haters. “We some fine-a– motherf—in’ grandparents, ain’t we? And we gets it in!”
