(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.

T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle (Monday, 9 p.m. ET; VH1) 

"I can't wait to see my feet. I can't wait to run and jump." —Shekinah

"So basically, you going to make me a bad bi—-." —Shekinah

Highlight: After talking about it all season, Shekinah finally gets in shape … by heading to the plastic surgeon's office. Lucky for us, it's not all cutting and lipo. We get to meet Shekinah's crazy family and watch T.I. shoot a music video with Lil Wayne, too.

Chrissy & Mr. Jones (Monday, 9:30 p.m. ET; VH1)

"I don't want to look. Is it safe to look?" —Chrissy

"Looking for a few good men. Not for me personally, for the jackets." —Chrissy

Highlight: What does every rapper's boo do when she's taking a break from her man? Go look at some male models for her jacket line, of course. Meanwhile Jimmy's out hiring a new assistant. Are they even trying to make this work?!
