I’ve always been the kid, that when everyone would go outside to play, I was curious to see how the camera works.”

2. She Would Consider Acting

Being on reality TV was an interesting experience for Cristen, and she enjoyed being in front of the camera.

4. She Only Joined The Basketball Wives Cast Because Of Her Sister

Deciding to do a reality show is always a difficult decision. Cristen’s experience on Basketball Wives is a cautionary tale as to why. During her time on the show, she and her sisters had a huge falling out that has affected them all in real life. Ironically though, Cristen only did the show in the first place because her sister, Aja, didn’t want to do it alone.

5. She Met Joe Crawford Through Mutual Friends

Cristen and Joe Crawford have been together for many years and their love story, like many others, began with a connection through mutual friends. During her interview with On Point Celebz, she said, “I was out with my sister, she was meeting up with one of his teammates. We didn’t know that we were actually with the same party, and we randomly started talking to one another. And that’s it!”

6. She Wants To Be An Inspiration For Her Daughter

7. She Wants The World to Know She Can Dress

When Cristen joined the cast of Basketball Wives, she definitely had to deal with some new girl hazing. One of the first things to be targeted about her was the way she dressed. The other girls felt like Cristen had absolutely no style and they even tried to give her a surprise makeover. Despite their opinions on her outfits, Cristen insists that she has style.

8. Her Relationship With Her Sisters Is Still Strained

One of the most memorable parts of Cristen’s Basketball Wives storyline was the relationship she had with her sisters. The three got into it multiple times throughout the season and it was clear that the bad blood wasn’t just an act for the cameras. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like they’ve been able to repair their relationship. Cristen’s social media pages don’t have any mention of her sisters, Aja or Melissa.

9. She Believes The Show Had A Positive Impact On Her Life
