Now we may have to confirm this with one of you because we simply can’t believe this could possibly be the truth. Some of the blogs out there are reporting a mishap with the NBA couple, the Christies. Supposedly, NBA star Doug Christie and his wife were out eating and he choked on a chicken bone. His wife, Jackie, calls for help, yet when she gets the attention of a female physician, she doesn’t allow her to help him and begins to pelt the woman with her purse.
The Christie’s have long been a “controversial” couple. Several years ago, the New York Times printed a story on their relationship and delved into the “pact” the two share. For instance, the story details how she attended almost all of his games when he was with the Toronto Raptors, that they re-marry every year, and that he chooses not to look at other women.
At the conclusion of the choking incident, Doug Christie was quoted saying, “Although I am glad to be alive, I’m equally glad that my wife spared me the indignity of having another woman give me the Heimlich,” he continued. “That would’ve been catastrophic…” Can this be real? If it be merely for the entertainment of its readers, the hands down favorite quote from this unbelievable tale comes from the “male” medical student that saved him, Sanjay Mehta. “I am extremely surprised that this man’s wife did not allow Miss Jordan to save his life,” said Mehta. “If another minute had gone by, he would surely be dead. In my country, this mad woman would have her hands cut off and her vagina sewn shut.” You read the story and get back to us. We’ll understand if you need a drink before responding.
