On this season of Basketball Wive’s LA, Brandi Maxiell is dealing with much more than just petty cat fights.

Brandi recently stopped by the HipHollywood loft and opened up about her deep story line, including her heartbreak and life after surviving ovarian cancer.

As seen on this season’s super trailer, Maxiell’s co-star, Draya Michele stated that nobody cared about Brandi’s “sad story,” a statement Maxiell tells HipHollywood was very immature. “You can’t blame those that never walked that life or don’t even know anybody that has been effected by cancer. You don’t have that heart, ” Maxiell told us. “I think it’s very weak for anybody to say that.”

Meanwhile, the reality star is fighting to keep her marriage to former NBA player, Jason Maxiell, alive.

As chronicled on the hit VH1 show, Jason has been unfaithful, but depite the pain, Brandi stayed. “Because we have a three year old baby that is beautiful that needs the both of us. And he’s my husband,” she told us. “I’ve been with him off and on since I was 16 years old. He is all that I know. He is the only man that I love. Why stop now? ”

Maxiell added, “I’ve always said for better worse, for richer for poorer. It’s a struggle, it’s a process, but we are getting there.”

Basketball Wives airs Sunday nights at 11 p.m. on VH1.


Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
