Basketball Wives LA Recap: It Takes One to Know One

November 19, 2012 08:23 PM by Shayla Perry

Now it’s all starting to make sense! If you’re still trying to figure out why Laura Govan would go so far to hurt Jackie Christie, we’ll save you the frustration. Apparently, Jackie’s not the only crazy one on VH1‘s Basketball Wives LA, and the other ladies are finally seeing that. But what about Laura’s sister, Gloria?

Tonight on Basketball Wives LA….

After hearing about Laura’s most recent beef with Jackie — from her sister of course — Gloria was starting to get concerned about the fact that all of the other ladies were “ganging up” on Laura. Did they really not remember how bad Jackie was to all of them last year? Or maybe they’re just adults and moved on with their lives without letting Jackie be the focus? Hmmm….

So, to try to understand Jackie’s many sides of the issue, Gloria meets with her; a decision we’re sure she regretted about 10 minutes into Jackie’s long a$$ explanation.

BUT, through all of that, what Gloria should’ve picked up on was that Jackie’s interpretation of her relationship with Laura was waaaay off from what Gloria knew it to be. Probably a sign that your sister’s up to at least a little something. Then again, we’ve also seen how Jackie’s consistently gone back to Laura to see if she likes her. And yes, she does it for about the 1,000th time in this episode.

Later, Laura and Bambi get together and AGAIN, Bambi lets her know that she’s not cool with how Laura’s playing Jackie. That’s not changing things for Laura, though.

Right now, the only one who seems to understand why she’s doing what she’s doing is her sister.

But you knew the whole Team Jackie thing wasn’t gonna last long….

For the launch of her swimsuit line, Draya throws a white party. So of course, Jackie shows up wearing black and gold from head to toe. Whether or not Draya told her to wear white, no one will ever know (though Malaysia believes that Draya DID). So is Jackie just crazy…and hard of hearing??

Did she do it for the drama?

Either way, Draya is not amused, and Malaysia has finally had enough.

In fact, maybe we’ve had enough of defending Jackie too, because the smartest thing she did all season was to get up to leave the party. But then she had to go ruin it by trying to stop and talk to Laura one more time. Really??!!

Malaysia tells her to let it go because it’s Draya’s night. Maybe she’s never met Jackie. Let things go? Not her style.

Not wanting a scene at her event, Draya has them all sit at a table (surrounded my cameras — nothing to see here!). Laura immediately lets Jackie know her issue with her, which kind of makes everyone (except Gloria) sit back and think… ‘She’s really not over that yet?’

Bambi’s defending Jackie and Gloria’s mad saying that she shouldn’t speak because she doesn’t know what’s going on. The same Gloria who hasn’t been around whenever her sister has done this stuff to Jackie. Suddenly, the only one making sense is Jackie.

Did Laura just tell her everything now because no one was trying to play her games?

We don’t know (though we have an idea!), but something tells us that Jackie will be back in a matter of days trying to be Laura’s BFF. And Laura’s going to keep playin’ along. Maybe they deserve each other.

Who’s crazier RTVM — Jackie or Laura?

    Laura’s crazier, because she swears Jackie has mental issues, well then why is Laura tormenting an alleged “crazy” lady.
    Laura simply wanted a platform this season because her baby’s father refused to film this season aswell as last season. I read Laura has to fly to LA just to shoot the BBW show, she stays in a hotel, by herself.
    That might be why she’s so miserable this season. She’s lonely!

    Jackie is still the same self-absorbed crazy person on this show. Laura is still feeling the result of last season’s madness with that old heifer. I watch this show thinking, “Are these women suffering from amnesia? Who allows someone to manipulate them and have people at each other’s throats with lies they were told by someone else?” Laura is the only one who wants personal satisfaction by making Jackie feel the way she felt last season. I get it…it’s not that tough. What I don’t get is why Bambi needs to protect Jackie against someone who has every reason to treat Jackie the way she deserves to be treated. Bambi is ghetto stupid and she needs to go find her 15 minutes on Love & Hip Hop – Atlanta since she is not affiliated with basketball or a player. There, I said it.
