I was watching Basketball Wives LA after my Monday night workout and of course, the regular Tom Foolery was occurring. And yes the women are fighting and being petty, but they are pretty, have good weaves and they are rich. So of course I am going to watch! Plus I love to put my two cents in on the comedy. During this Monday nights episode Jackie Christie, wife of professional athlete Doug Christie, made a ridiculous ignorant shame of herself. Oh you didn't hear her when she said it, let me explain.
The Christie's live a nice, cushy life and live in a gorgeous home. These people are upper-upper middle class. They may not be JayZ and Beyonce rich, but they are doing nicely for themselves.
Jackie Christie is working on a Cognac line and the line has invited Jackie Christie and her friends to Paris. I am thinking, Oh how nice.
"I guess I better get a passport!"
My mouth dropped. How do you spend thousands of dollars on hair and clothes but don't find yourself buying a ticket to another country?
We all critique women on reality TV, but this is beyond a little "box out." In my spirit I think that her lack of travel may cause her to be so provincial that she feels like her small LA world is all that there is.
I implore you all to gather your duckets and travel, you don't have to be uber rich, but see something beyond your own backyard-please. It changed my life.
It is difficult to be messy when there is a trip to Dubai on the horizon.
And just as a side note, Doug Christie doesn't go on ANY trips without his wife. They have a 20+ year old daughter. So in 20 years this couple(with means) has not ventured to another country?
What say you about Jackie Christie's lack of International Travel?
