Who Is Eddie Jordan? 5 Things To Know About Charrisse Jackson Jordan's Husband

The retired NBA player was on a team with one of the most famous Lakers of all time.

During the Season 1 reunion of The Real Housewives of Potomac, Charrisse Jackson Jordan shared that her husband, Eddie Jordan, hadn't spoken to her since the show aired. As the second season continues, we see their relationship troubles front and center. Charrisse's dropping my last name announcement, anyone? Have you ever wondered who Charrisse's mysterious husband is? Learn more below.

1.  He Attended Rutgers- And Coached Their Basketball Team

According to Wikipedia, he went to the New Jersey school during the '70s and was given the nickname "Fast Eddie" for helping the team reach the NCAA Final Four. Though, Charrisse tells us that nickname might be outdated, "I forgot how he got the name Fast Eddie. It was during BC (Before Charrisse). No, everyone calls him Eddie. His birth name is Edward." 

2.  He Played With Magic Johnson on the Lakers

We also learned Eddie played with the Lakers from 1980 to 1984, even participating in the legendary 1982 NBA Finals game alongside Magic Johnson! So he's a pretty big deal in the sports world. During his NBA career, he also played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, New Jersey Nets, Wyoming Wildcatters and Portland Trail Blazers.

3.  He always knew he wanted to coach.

Though he was a NBA star in his own right, Eddie Jordan always had the coaching bug. Charrisse shared, "He always wanted to be a coach. Actually, as soon as I started dating him he got a job offer with the Sacramento Kings. I was so upset. I was hoping he didn't take the job. However, it was his dream to coach in the NBA." 

4.  Eddie's Coaching Career brought his family to Potomac

And in fact, it was Eddie who brought his family to Potomac. Charrise explained, "Eddie was contracted as Head Coach of the Washington Wizards in DC. I already had my eyes on Potomac after visiting one of my best friends years prior. My dream came true sooner than anticipated." We guess it was fate for Housewives fans, too, that Eddie coached the Wizards! 

5.  Jackson is the Spitting Image of Him

I guess the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree. Loving the Bullis track uniform 😄.
