By now, most Basketball Wives fans know all about Brandi Maxiell’s marital drama and her husband Jason Maxiell’s cheating scandal. But that doesn’t mean they are ready to throw in the towel just yet. According to The Jasmine Brand, Brandi recently took to Instagram with an interesting post about her marriage celebrating her anniversary with her man.
On Friday, August 3, Brandi took to Instagram with a clip capturing their lives over the course of their relationship. She made it clear that no person or marriage is perfect but despite the imperfections, she and Jason are just two people who refuse to give up on each other. Although they’ve had their ups and downs, they’re still determined to move forward and stay strong.
The video dialogue reads, “9 year anniversary,” Brandi Maxiell wrote.
“If I love you I won’t give up easily, leaving would be my last option! A perfect marriage is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other. Marriage requires you to be strong and things will get better. It may be stormy now, but it never rains forever. Marriage is home maintenance. When something breaks, you fix it. You don’t buy a new house. Marriage is a gift from God to us. The quality of our marriage is our gift to him. You should want the kind of marriage that makes your kids want to get married. Love wins.”
With the post, Brandi also wrote, “Real relationships are when you can fight like enemies, laugh like best friends and love like soul mates.” Met him at 17 and look what God did…lifelong best friend!

Of course, there were a few people to criticize Brandi for sticking by Jason. However, the vast majority of the posts and reactions weren’t what you’d expect. While most fans are quick to bash women who stay in marriages filled with abuse or infidelity, surprisingly most fans had a different response for Jason and Brandi. It actually looks like fans are applauding the couple for working through their differences. The post has been flooded with congratulatory comments from fans everywhere. One fan wrote, “Happy Anniversary to y’all!! @brandimaxiell
I’m also married to a Jason, who played ball and our anniversary was yesterday! We also have a, not so little anymore, boy. Wishing y’all many more years of happiness together!”
Another fan applauded Brandi writing, “Not that it matter but Brandy I am so proud of the way you have handled all the adversity and trials you all have been through these last few years .. kudos my friend… you’re a hell of a woman and I think you deserve to know it.” Then, another fan wrote, “Happy Anniversary very beautiful. May God continue to bless you with many more years to come.”
The Reality TV Curse?:
Prior to reality TV, Jason and Brandi appeared to have a picture perfect, solid marriage. When they were featured on E!, fans praised Jason for his loving devotion and support of his wife during her medical crisis. But once the two ventured into the world of reality TV, fans had the opportunity to see a different side of the couple; the side fueled by drama, betrayal, and infidelity. But despite all the drama, Brandi is making it clear that the hard times won’t destroy their marriage. They’re nine years in with a lifetime ahead. Congratulations to Jason and Brandi.
