Brandi Maxiell Opens Up About Her Marriage!!!
Basketball Wives LA season 4 is over and the fate of who returns is up to Shaunie O’Neal, meanwhile Brandi Maxiell Opens Up About Her Marriage.
Brandi and Jason have been going through marital bumps ever since he cheated on her and she’s be finding it difficult to forgive him. She has had to deal with cancer ridicule after surviving cancer. No one knows how hard that is, so when Draya said she was boring for her cancer story line she was out of line.
If Draya ever has to deal with cancer, maybe one day she’ll finally get a clue how rude that was and as for Tami Roman, we love you, but next time save your opinions. Draya is heartless and always hurts with words. Don’t defend someone like that.
Now back to Brandi Maxiell who opened Up About Her Marriage to Jason Maxiell.
Where do things stand with you and Jason since the show wrapped?
“Today, we are working on things. We’re not 100%, we’re not perfect like we once were before. It just takes time, you know we’re doing what we need to do, what we feel that we need to do, what’s best and I’m really taking my time with it, because I don’t want to jump into a situation and then it falls back to what it was before. I’m not rushing because the people want us to get back together, or he wants to. I’m doing what I feel is best for me, because I was the one that was hurt. So we’re just taking our time with it. But, I can say that we are a million times better than when I was filming.”
About the infidelity stuff with Jason, back in season 3 did you know about his cheating?
“[Laughs] I knew you were going to mention that moment. When we went to drinks last season, and we talked about that, it kind of looked like it was like, “Yeah girl, he cheats, you don’t know?” But it wasn’t like, “Girl, yeah I’m okay with that.” It was nothing like that, it was more like, “Dude, he’s a professional athlete and we’ve been through things like any professional athlete couple have been through.
When that stuff went down [with Jason and I] it was before we were married. It was just when he was fresh in the game and we’ve dealt with you know the groupies, the sidepieces, whatever people want to call it. So, I wasn’t dealing with it in my marriage at that moment with Draya and Malaysia last season. I remember doing my confessionals, they would stop me and be like, “No, you’ve got to stop putting s— on you, it’s not because of you, it’s him.” Once I had my son, it was all about my son. I was like that mom by the book. You know, I did everything right. Every time I had a break I never went on date night, I never did anything that we used to do as a couple. And I went through postpartum [depression] and I really just forgot about him. When you forget about him, and you neglect your husband, you know, they get neglected and they do stupid things, and I think that’s what happened. Even though I feel like it was my fault on what happened, he was supposed to be responsible enough to be my husband, stay faithful and stay, and continue to be the husband that he’s supposed to be but we’re here. . But, you know, we’re here.”
What kind of conversation did you and Jason have before you signed up for Basketball Wives LA?
“They wanted me to do the Miami version of Basketball Wives, and I was like,”Eh, no, I don’t know.” Then they told me they coming out with the LA show and I was game to do it but I couldn’t film, because I got pregnant. Then the next season, I was just like supermom, so I was like, “No.” And then it came up again for the third season, and I was just like, I don’t know. I remember Malaysia was like,”Come on, just do it,” and I talked to Jason about it, and he was like, “Do it.” I was against it, at first. I was just like I don’t think it’s right, just let me do my business.
He was like, “Just tell your story, just get out there just to say you did it. You just never know what’s next and what opportunity can come with you doing the show.” So he was 1000% supportive. He never once said, “No, I’m not doing it, F— the show.” A lot of players would be like, “You can do it but I’m not showing up,” that kind of thing. He was supportive, and he’s always been supportive with anything that I do, so I wasn’t surprised at that.”
