Evelyn Lozada and Jackie Christie are putting the past behind them. The “Basketball Wives” stars extended an olive branch toward one another on Monday night’s episode, which came after a massive fight between them on season 6.
Christie called up Shaunie O’Neal to see if she could make it to her play at the 4:03 mark. While her son’s prom prevented her from being able to go, Lozada planned to catch Christie’s stage play debut.
“Although Jackie and I have been through a rocky couple of months, I’m just trying to be supportive,” Lozada explains during a confessional. “I’m even more so interested in the play because it has to do with domestic violence.
Last season, Lozada and Christie went at it after tensions boiled over after Christie called Lozada a b—- in front of her daughter, Shaniece. Outside a bar, Christie brought up the incident once more and told Lozada she read online that Shaniece is a “build-a-whore.” The two had a heated exchange before things became physical, with each of the women being held back as they hurled threats and expletives toward one another, as seen at the 5:13 mark.
“A lot happened between Jackie and I,” Lozada says in a confessional. “But I feel like she’s trying to be a different person the last couple of months and I can only respect it.”
Fans were happy to see their reconciliation.
“Proud of the maturity Evelyn showing Jackie #BasketballWives.”
“I actually like Jackie and Evelyn being friends. I’m not the biggest fan of Evelyn, but this is sweet. #BBWLA.”
Meanwhile, Lozada herself explained why she decided to move forward with Christie.
“Jackie’s actions at the infamous “retreat” showed me a different side of her. This is why im working on moving on #Basketballwives
