Who Is Charrisse's Husband, Eddie Jordan? 'The Real Housewives Of Potomac' Star Is An Athlete

The Real Housewives franchise on Bravo is getting a little bigger on Sunday, Jan. 17, with the premiere of Real Housewives of Potomac. The trailer for the series teases that Potomac is a well-kept secret just outside of Washington, DC. Of course, the new show also promises drama and intrigue among a group of the city’s notable women, like Charrisse Jackson Jordan. But, who is her husband, Eddie Jordan?

According to her Bravo bio, Charrisse is a "dedicated wife, mother, and socialite whose reputation precedes her in the elite Potomac social circle." This seemingly means that Charrisse is a formidable woman who has the respect of everyone in her elusive group. Well, almost everyone. When other cast members were asked to describe Charrisse, they all looked intimidated when discussing her elegance and hostess skills — and not everyone had something nice to say. But, before we get to know Charrisse and her basketball star husband Eddie Jordan, there are few things about their relationship to know — like their unconventional living situation.

Eddie and Charrisse have been married for almost two decades, but there is a twist. Here is everything you need to know about his work, family, and marriage before meeting the couple on RHOP.

Eddie Was A Professional Basketball Player

According to Charrisse's Bravo profile, “Eddie played seven seasons in the NBA for the Cleveland Cavaliers, New Jersey Nets, Portland Trail Blazers, and was a member of the 1982 Los Angeles Lakers championship team.” That's pretty impressive!
