"Basketball Wives LA" Star Jackie Christie Loses Her Mother To Cancer

"Basketball Wives LA" star Jackie Christie revealed this morning that her mother passed away from cancer earlier today. Listen to the interview inside...

Jackie Christie called "The Tom Joyner Morning Show" this morning and revealed that she lost her mom earlier today.  We've been following how she and her sister have been dealing with her mother's health on this season of "Basketball Wives."

Her mom had a long battle with cancer and Jackie said she was happy that her mom made it to the 16th wedding of she and Doug before she died.

When asked about the drama surrounding the show, Jackie encouraged viewers to stay tuned because there will be many surprises along the way.  She also said people should not judge the entire season by the fight that happened in episode one.

She then spoke on the drama with her daughter Takari who had been saying some malicious and hurtful things about Jackie and her parenting skills--or lack thereof.  She says this drama is now resolved and that she and her daughter speak often and are working through their issues.  Interesting.

My mother died of the same

My mother died of the same kind of cancer her mother had. Just seeing her Mom there viewing her daughter's wedding was just so sad for me. I lost my mother a year ago this Sept. And it's still hard for me. I know how see felt knowing there was nothing that could be done to save her mother. God Bless her and her family.

Jackie, I know what it feels

Jackie, I know what it feels like to lose a Mother....and one that raised your oldest daughter...but as your mother now looks down from heaven....You now need to make your relationship right with you first born...she appears to be in a lot of pain from you rejecting her...make your mother proud and re-bond your relationship with your child. You mentioned you are a family woman..why don't you make things right? As a mother and grandmother myself I would never ever place a MAN before my children nor would I ever give my child away to chase a man...MOTHERHOOD is a gift from GOD...and how you treat them shall come to light. Jackie’s eldest daughter, Ta’Kari, whom she had with an alleged infamous drug dealer (Tyrone Lee) back in the 80′s has decided to break her silence and tell the true story of what happens in the Christie’s household in a new book entitled: ‘Mommy’s Secret’. Miss Ta’Kari makes a lot of wild accusations, including an eviction by Jackie! This could get ugly – ‘Kari’s already taken it to Twitter! You’ll be shocked by what she says below! In the yet to be released book – my source says Ta’Kari plans on telling juicy secrets such as: “Doug not being allowed to have a cell phone, even though his 10 year old son, Douglas Jr. has one as well as back in Doug’s heyday when he played for the Kings, Jackie would order Doug’s room service while he was on the road, from another state.. to be ensured that a female room service attendant wouldn’t deliver it. Ta’Kari, was informally adopted by Doug when she was a child, lived with Jackie and Doug off and on until she was 15, even though she was under the care of her Grandmother (Jackie’s Mom). Jackie paid her mother, Cora, to do her dirty work such as change diapers, babysit etc. while she followed Doug around the country.” The source also claims: “Kari says that she does not hate her mother, however she wants to be compensated for the pain and suffering she endured over the years. She feels as though her only option, is to write a book and reap the benefits of that. Ta’Kari’s book, cleverly titled “My Mothers Secret” has a Winter 2011 release date. She says there are no limits to all the details she will release. She knows that people will doubt the validity of her statements, but she is adamant that she has photos, screenshots of conversations her mother and her have had, as well as recorded phone conversations” Jackie hasn’t responded to these statements, except for tweeting that “For all those who has questions, just be patient.. The answer is coming soon…”, she also tweeted “Just shaking my head really not sure what to say..”

I really hope Jackie does not

I really hope Jackie does not read this stuff, even if she does, who really gives a damn about what viewers think, because the fact of the matter is, they are all watching the show, which produces ratings, which makes paychecks, chachin!!! Mothers and young adult daughters often times go through shit, nobody really knows what the situation is between the two, it is not the viewers business. They will work through it. My heart goes out to you Jackie, if you read this stuff, for the lost of your mother as well as the conflict between you & your daughter. I am where you are at with conflict between myself and a young adult daughter, I don't understand her issues, however, I know that I have been the best single mother that I can be, providing and loving with all that has been in my power and continue to support her as much as she will allow me to, the rest I give up to my Lord and Savorior, Jesus, Christ!!! In closing, I would say that I do not often times agree with the casts position, but I look forward to the show as enterainment every freakin Monday. Keep it Up Girls.

Jackie's mom passing away is sad, but all to soon we'll be back to the BS of her and the girls daily lives which is crap. Gloria needs to take her tacky lil self off the show....Shaunie wannabe. Laura is creepy, Jackie w/no taste and nothng to do except plan weddings is a hoot. Her wedding was important to her...NOT DRAYA. DRAYA did right go get something waxed and leave the wedding drama to the drama queens. I can't wait until Jackie finds out Melasia told DRAYA about how she got invited. so much for the crappy VH-1 show.

what woman doesn't discuss what shoes to wear? and all that other stuff you're talking about...what are you talking about exactly. Again all women at some point talks about who someone else slept with. They do have real problems, Laura is having financial issues, Jackie's mother died from cancer. Imani is raising kids alone, etc..Real life sh*t

From watching the episodes, it seems as if Jackie's mother had such a beautiful spirit. I loved Jackie and Doug's wedding but it was sad watching it tonight because I had just learned her mother had passed. My prayers are with her family and may God bless her; she is in a wonderful place with no more suffering.

Sorry about your loss Jackie. Some of you guys need to understand that people greive differently, so of course Tom Joyner and the crew are going to ask how her mother was doing. People act like they have never lost loved one or a friend or even been to a homegoing service.

Her mom has been on the show

Her mom has been on the show so obviously people want to know how she's doing and she didn't bring up the show, she was ASKED about it. That should be unprofessional on the radio show's part.

Well, that's why this thing

Well, that's why this thing called 'publicists' were created. They release statements on your behalf in instances such as this. I don't know any celebrities (in this case, pseudo celebrity) that would be on the phone with any media outlet talking about a dumb ass reality show when they mother JUST passed away. This chick wants fame at any means necessary. So come harder with that weak ass explanation. #epicfail

You're dumb ass hell and probably don't watch the show, I highly doubt Jackie is after fame. And like others have said, you don't know how people grieve. Maybe she doesn't have a publicist because she's not about fame..hummm
