Talk about scandalous … on a recent episode of “Basketball Wives LA”…Jackie Christie’s daughter Chantel Christie claimed she dated Draya Michele’s boyfriend NFL player Orlando Scandrick and caused a lot of drama. In her new interview with The Home of Hip Hop Chantal claims she was dating Orlando for a very short time and before she knew it he was at the 2013 ESPY Awards with Draya and by that time she was no longer seeing Orlando. She went on to call the situation a part of  ‘entertainment’ and it became a bigger issue than it should have been.

“I met Orlando through a mutual friend. He text me one night while I was at the studio, and that was in June [2013]. And I didn’t find out that they were together until the ESPYS [July 2013], so the viewers can do the math. But all these stories about breaks, and oh we weren’t together, and well we were together, but I just wasn’t living in the house, all these things – it’s too much,” Chantal said.”But what I will say is that I laugh at people calling me a side chick and a home wrecker because I was never aware of her. First off, it’s not in my character; it’s too many fish in the sea. Second of all, I mean, for crying out loud, she’s on a show with my mom. It’s too many other people out there for me to just go for somebody like that; it’s just not…the people that were involved and that introduced me to him, and he text me first, they know what’s up. I don’t really worry about the outsiders that say things like, ‘oh, you were with him when he was with her, and you’re proud of being the side chick.’ Who in their right mind is proud of being the side chick? Like, what?”

She added, “It was very brief between Orlando and I, and as I stated in the first episode that came out about this whole entire saga, I addressed it as being something minor. Granted, everybody goes, ‘if it was minor, why did you bring it up?’ At the end of the day, why do you guys watch reality TV for? This is entertainment; everybody just calm down and relax. At the end of the day, this is what it was, and it should have never got to this point. It blew up into something way bigger than what it should’ve been, but when you come for me, and I’m called names, and I’m this, and I’m a ho, I gotta send for you. So yes, it’s going to turn into something ugly, but this could’ve easily been prevented?”

I’m still confused with the situation!
