Brandi said she did not want to know the exact number after learning that her retired basketball spouse had cheated a lot more than she had thought.

Although she was already aware of her infidelity, the former Basketball Wives LA star was devastated when she shared that she had sex with "more than 50 women". in their life.
Calling it "disgusting," Iyanla asked Brandi why the number was worse than sleeping with 10 other people, for example.

Brandi replied: & # 39; I'm not saying that it is not. Eight is a lot for me. "

The sportsman had revealed to Vanzant separately his 341 conquests, but that was when Brandi, his 17-year-old companion, was not in the room.
Jason maintained during the conversation that he had been checked to see if he was a sex addict and that the result was that he was not.
Adding that "at the time it was easy to do," he divulged that he could have been looking for something more because he was unfaithful.

He replied: "I do not know, I guess there are only two or three hours left." But Jason could not pinpoint exactly what he wanted to get away from.
Vanzant's reasoning was that a man demonstrates what his father did, but it is "who makes him his mother".
