Jackie Christie’s an eccentric character so, of course, her close friends gotta be poppin’, too. In a special bonus clip, we get to know Jackie’s BFF Deon who is always just a few steps from Jackie whenever she’s filming Basketball Wives.
Tami describes Deon as Jackie’s “good Judy” who always has a different hair color and is always dressed identical to Jackie. “He will carry her bags, he will spoon-feed her if necessary. He’s just always in the shadows, in the wings, just there, just hovering. That’s Deon!” (Cue: montage footage of Deon with different colored hair, always in the shadows, in the wings, hovering beside Jackie.)
In her own words, Jackie describes Deon as “my partner in crime, he’s my friend, he’s my stylist, he’s the boy version of me, and I’m the girl version of him.” Jackie continues, “Anywhere you see me on the globe, you’re gonna see Deon. Deon is always going to be that voice of reason as far as keeping me out of trouble.”
The gag is? Deon can throw shade, too. And had some words for Evelyn as he and Jackie walked out of the magazine party. “She’s expired, she’s a has-been. Has-been!” Oh, okay, Deon, we see you.
