Black TV Watch: Draya’s Jackie Costume

Halloween comes early on Basketball Wives. Plus, Shekinah gets lipo and Chrissy hosts a fashion show.

(The Root) — It’s Halloween season, so why not dress up as the woman you love to hate, get a completely new look or find a Halloween date? It’s all about being something you’re not, right? 

Basketball Wives L.A. (Monday, 8 p.m. ET; VH1) 

“I have my crinkly, curly, wet-look hair that she wears. I got my iPad cheetah case cover. I got my liquor in a water bottle. I’m just Jackie. I’m Jackied-out.” —Draya 

“Who got insurance up in this mother——?” —Jackie 

“Alcohol makes you mellow. Hello!” —Laura 

Highlight: Draya decides to attend Laura’s mixology event dressed as Jackie, complete with nails and crazy-ass attitude. Turns out Jackie wants to be Draya, too. She heads to the bathroom and comes out as Draya, who is apparently a middle-aged Spanx-wearing woman. Then the two take playful jabs at each other, and things turn mean when Jackie starts talking about how Draya stole a smutty magazine cover from Brooke and pulls out her pepper spray. Well, turns out that Jackie’s bark is better than her bite, because from the looks of it, Brooke took a fairly large piece out of that classic Christie weave.
