This should be interesting
Brandi Maxiell has already aired out all her dirty laundry, so going to Iyanla to get it all sorted isn’t exactly a huge step. The Basketball Wives star and wife of former NBA player Jason Maxiell is going to the OWN therapy show to work through her hubby’s infidelity.
The Maxiells are shown going through it in a new trailer posted to Instagram.
It definitely won’t be the first time that Brandi has publicly trashed her husband for his philandering ways. In a series of since-deleted Instagram posts, she told all of her followers that Jason was a dog.
“Everyone go follow my f**ked up husband,” she wrote under an image of his account which was set to private. “I can’t seem to because he likes to follow b***hes.”
She followed that up with a post implying that she was tossing him from her life along with all of his stuff.
“The trash gets picked up tomorrow,” it said. “Be ready.”
Of course, that didn’t happen. Looks like the couple are going to try and work it out instead. If the past is any indication, she’ll bring a load of drama to the therapy show.
Drama All the Time
If you need proof, just check out the way she returned to Basketball Wives after her time away. She immediately began trashing the other cast members, saying that they were boring.
“The reason WE back was the show was tired and whack and they were filming for almost 3 months and could barely pull 1 episode out of it. And they begged for Malaysia and I to come back. Not knowing the others would be so childish like that,” she tweeted.
She then laid out exactly why she thinks she’s the only interesting cast member.
“I have a degree, survivor, own a salon, makeup line, trucking company, speaking engagements and GOD isn’t done yet boo,” she wrote. “What your substance??? Pulling black women together to fight one another???..No im sorry…B***H PLEASE.”

It wasn’t long before Evelyn Lozada took offense. Lozada said that she was brought back to fill a very specific hole in the cast.
“Lies! They brought them back in when the Metoyer sisters didn’t work out,” Evelyn tweeted, before adding that she’s done more than Maxiell.
“LOL! I’m 4 years older than her. She’s not that far behind,” she said.
Brandi wasn’t done though. She went on DeDe In The Morning to explain exactly what it is she dislikes about Lozada:
“I don’t respect her anymore just based on… She went on The Real talking about substance and then it kind of made it seem like she was talking about Malaysia and I, like, with ‘No substance,’ and you know, no whatever[…] It’s just like she comes on the show talking about substance and she wants to revamp the show but yet I have not seen anything of her or anything of her doing anything but talk about Jackie and this daughter situation.
Girl, let’s talk about you, your kids, your boo, your job, all this other stuff. You’re taking 15 episodes talking about someone being a horrible mother. If you think someone’s a horrible mother as a ‘woman’ trying to show empowerment why don’t you uplift her or teach her or show her or guide her or whatever.”
