Basketball Wives star Jackie Christie is trying out a new look, and we have to say, it looks pretty good on her.
The 49-year-old posted an image on Instagram on Monday of herself, wrapped in a fur, wearing some oversized shades and sporting what looks to be a completely bald head:
Considering how perfectly even the look is (it is perhaps the smoothest bald head we’ve seen — you wouldn’t have known hair ever grew out of her head), we have a feeling that we’re looking at a bald wig cap. She also tagged VH1 and Basketball Wives in the caption, so this could very well be for some antics Christie is participating in while filming.
She is never too shy about trying new things. During Season 7 alone, Christie did goat yoga, starred in a play and a PSA for anti-gun violence, and confronted some of her past demons in front of the world in therapy. So sporting a wig cap in Season 8? Wouldn’t be a shocker. We’ve seen Christie in all sorts of styles, including a very short, slicked down ‘do, as well as long and sleek and long and curly extensions. Whatever the reason behind this new look, Christie rocks it quite well. Husband Doug, who wears the same exact hairstyle and is her biggest fan in all things, likely agrees.
Christie has confirmed that she will be back for Season 8, and so has former nemesis and now colleague, Evelyn Lozada. As for her good friend Tami Roman, she recently said she’s not so sure if she will return. She stated that “certain changes would have to be made for me to be comfortable in that environment,” but also mentioned that talks were still underway.
We’ll have to wait and see who is a go when the new season premieres later this year, and we’ll also have to wait and see if Christie’s hair-less hairstyle will stick around. What do you guys think of it?
