Christie, aka “Crazy Jackie,” earned her nickname due to her bi-polar nature combined with the extreme measures she’s taken to keep her retired NBA baller hubby Doug Christie in check.

Christie sat down with VIBE recently where she dished the dirt on the Miami cast of Basketball Wives.? She revealed that if she had to choose a favorite it would be Shaunie O’neal (nice political answer) and she also seems to genuinely like them all.
When asked about Evelyn & Chad’s relationship, Jackie responded:
I really admire their relationship. I think they?re best friends and can act silly and have fun. At the same time, they have that commitment level that you need in a long-lasting relationship. I know they?re planning their wedding and getting married soon. I wish them many years of married bliss.
Jackie’s advice to Evelyn on maintaining a? relationship that is under so much scrutiny…
I would tell her to ignore the naysayers. There?s gonna be a lot of them. [Chad] is an athlete; [Evelyn] is a celebrity in her own right, and there?s gonna be a lot of people saying things about their relationship. I?m sure there?s already been. She seems to really take it personal; I would just advise her to ignore it.
Turn the other cheek, because I took it for 15 years. I was hearing all kinds of different things, but put him first and have him put her first, which I?m sure they do. And I?m sure they?ll be just fine. I would definitely advise them to keep the world out of their relationship, though.
Do the shows, share, but make sure when it comes time for any of that hearsay or people butting in, ask them to kindly stay out.
Sounds about right to me! CLICK HERE for the full interview…
