Brandi Maxiell may not have been at the Basketball Wives reunion but she had plenty to say, mainly about how she feels the girls ganged up on Jackie Christie all season. She even goes on to call out Evelyn for “being the fakest.”
In an interview with K104, Brandi admits that although she is no longer on the cast, she still tunes in every Monday for all of the drama. It may be safe to say she’s displeased with the show post-Brandi. When it comes to the Evelyn/Jackie drama, Brandi says she’s #TeamJackie and feels the women, in particular Ev, were foul for how they treated her.
She tells DeDe in the Morning:
They moved on to talk about Jackie and her daughter’s situation and I think that’s very tacky, classless and… everybody there was a mother. They want to talk about empowerment and substance and who has substance, who don’t and all this other stuff and you are tearing down another black woman.
The radio show switches gears to find out the real tea on how Brandi feels about various cast members. The K104 crew isn’t here for Jackie at all but Brandi caped for her friend saying:
Jackie is the sweetest person that I know. Tami said it best. She’s the most supportive person you know. She has a makeup line and I have a make up line too and [Jackie] is like, “Whatever it is, I will support you. Just tell me what to do.” Like she’s so supportive.
The people want to know if Jackie’s act is a for real thing to which Brandi responds:
Now this is really her. What y’all see this season, this is really her. Don’t step on her turf or her family. You talk about her husband, you talk about her kids, it’s on.
As far as Evelyn goes, Brandi admits she used to be a fan but calls out her former favorite as being “fake.”
I don’t respect her anymore just based on…She went on The Real talking about substance and then it kind of made it seem like she was talking about Malaysia and I, like, with “No substance,” and you know, no whatever and it’s just like she comes on the show talking about substance and she wants to revamp the show but yet I have not seen anything of her or anything of her doing anything but talk about Jackie and this daughter situation. Girl, let’s talk about you, your kids, your boo, your job, all this other stuff. You’re taking 15 episodes talking about someone being a horrible mother. If you think someone’s a horrible mother as a “woman” trying to show empowerment why don’t you uplift her or teach her or show her or guide her or whatever.
Malaysia is still Brandi’s ace boon. Although she may not be on the show anymore, Brandi is still out here working. Take a listen to the full interview above.
In this Basketball Wives clip, the second Brandi comes as a plus one to a dinner, the rest of the ladies walk out on her.
