After a strange, argumentative season of “Basketball Wives LA,” we’ve finally arrived at the season one finale. The season began with Draya Michele as the unofficial “villain,” shifted its sights onto Laura Govan for a few episodes, and comfortably rested its crosshairs on Jackie Christie.

For the past few weeks of “Basketball Wives LA,” we’ve seen Jackie kiss and make up with Draya, only to be accused of talking about the other women behind their backs.
Story: Is Laura Govan a bully?
What we witnessed last week was craziness taken to a whole new level, as Laura, Malaysia, Imani, Gloria, and Draya all confronted Jackie about her lies, leading to the women banishing Christie from their tight clique while in Hawaii.
In freakin’ paradise, people.
So the women appear to be at a standstill with Jackie, with Jackie looked upon as a duplicitous woman whose out to stir the pot and pit people against one another.
Over the course of the season, I’ve often likened Jackie to an oversensitive version of Tami Roman—a woman willing to fight for her family and reputation but, unlike Tami, has rabbit ears and gets overly emotional whenever she believes others are talking about her or judging her behind her back.
And on a show like “Basketball Wives LA,” where gossip travels from person to person faster than an STD in college, that kind of personality trait becomes a genuine liability. And with Jackie, her insecurities and subsequent lashing out at others is causing serious tension between all the women.
So will Jackie be able to redeem her reputation on the “Basketball Wives LA” season finale? If you can’t wait until the episode hits VH1’s airwaves, check out the video to your left for a special sneak peek!
