Basketball Wife Jackie Christie Loses Her Mother To Cancer

|


On this season of Basketball Wives L.A., star Jackie Christie has opened up, at times emotionally, about her mother’s battle with cancer, and today we sadly bear the news that Jackie’s mother, Cora, passed away.

In an interview this morning with radio host Tom Joyner, Christie announced her mother’s passing which happened only hours earlier. “She’s had a long fight with [cancer] and I know she’s in a better place, it was her time,” Christie said on the radio show.

Tonight on Basketball Wives L.A., Cora’s presence at Jackie and Doug’s wedding is a huge, emotional part of the episode, and Jackie said today that of all the many weddings she and Doug have planned, “That would be my special wedding out of the sixteen that we’ve had.” Check out a clip from tonight’s episode here, and tune in to watch the special moment that the Christie’s shared, which is made all the more poignant with this news. Our hearts go out to the entire Christie family today.
