Courting Fame

Brandi Maxiell ('07) (Photo by Rowan Daly)Brandi Maxiell ('07) was an active student at UNT, whether as a member of the track team or as a business major. She's just as active today as the owner of Midway Salon Suites in Carrollton and as a cast member of the popular VH1 reality show Basketball Wives LA.

"Being on the show has been a wild experience," says Maxiell, who is married to Jason Maxiell.

"I'm used to the spotlight being on my husband and not me. But that has all changed. I'm happy that the response I get from others is positive, and listening to people tell me how they love how I handle myself makes me smile."
