Home » Basketball Wives: Los Angeles » Basketball Wives LA: Gossip on Draya Michele

Who is Andraya M. Howard aka Draya Michele from Basketball Wives LA?

She’s an ex stripper from Philadephia.

She is the rumored ex beau of NBA D listed player Javaris Crittenton who was arrested on August 26, 2011 for the murder of Jullian Jones, a 22-year-old mother of four in Atlanta, GA on the 19th August, 2011. Javaris was the 19th overall in the 2007 draft out of Georgia Tech. Jullian was shot in the leg and died during surgery.

Draya was linked to singer Chris Brown.

Draya has also been linked to Shannon Brown now married to singer Monica.

Draya has a 7 year old son who was reportedly in child protective custody after he called 911, while home alone. Allegedly her son would be home alone while she stripped at night in Philadelphia.

This is from the police report

A policeman found the boy alone in a disheveled apartment Dec. 16 about 2 a.m. after the boy called 9-1-1 and told dispatchers he was home alone.

He told Patrolman Kevin M. Quinter that he called his mother’s cell phone about 20 times to find out where she was. He last spoke to her when he called her after getting off the bus. She said she was at a tanning salon and would be home soon.

The apartment looked like it had been ransacked, with women’s undergarments scattered throughout the living room. A small dog was in a cage, and dog feces and dog urine were in several places in the apartment.

While Quinter talked to the boy, the youth got a TV dinner from the freezer, stood on the counter and put it into the microwave.

Police called the boy’s grandmother, who took him home.

She said she had been watching her grandson while Howard went to her job overnight in Philadelphia, but she had not been baby-sitting the boy for a few months.

Howard, who said she worked as a model, returned home about 8:45 a.m. and police told her that her son was in the care of the county Children and Youth Services while they investigated.

Police did not know the status of the child Friday.

They charged Howard on Dec. 30, but did not immediately arrest her because she agreed to surrender to sheriff’s deputies.

When she didn’t, police went to the apartment and arrested her.

… and now Draya is a LA Basketball Wife ….

      Be careful how you judge lest ye be measured in the fullest.People make mistakes and we are all imperfect.Don’t hate,show support,do it God’s way and all will be good.Draya is young and has a lot to learn but she can turn it all around.Take a look at those old ass bitches and what they are doing and how they act,like kids,immature and sound really uneducated.That’s a WOW1
      • nicole
        Yea she was young but its common sense, would you want to be left in a house with nothing to eat or drink. When she got pregnant she should have known that she wasn’t ready and gave him up for adoption. There is just no excuse for that no matter how old. The older
      • TNBelle2
        Amen JAZZIE. I agree with you 1000% subterfuge by the others is always taking the focus off of their skeletons. They have MANY and are definitely in NO PLACE to judge Draya. They live in BLOWN GLASS HOUSES
      • Jiggles
        AMEN, JAZZIE…PEOPLE REALLY NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT HOW THEY JUDGE OTHERS….NEVER THROW STONES….SMH AT ALL THOSE WOMEN BASHING THAT GIRL LIKE THAT..LIKE THEY DON’T HAVE ANY SKELTONS IN THEIR CLOSETS…GO FIGURE!!!
    • TCW
      HE THAT IS WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE, AND WE CAN’T TAKE EVERYTHING WE HEAR AS BEEN TRUTHFUL. I THINK BASKETBALL WIVES LA IS A BUNCH OF MESS YOU HAVE WOMEN’S IN THEIR 40′S KEEPING UP MESS LIKE THEY’RE IN JR HIGH SCHOOL JUST TASTELESS WOMEN WITH MONEY AND TO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HAND READ A BOOK OR TWO
    • Lokey21
      Im a put it like this so what thats her Business. we all make mistakes espeacially when we are young. They need to leave it alone. I think they are hating on her cause she is younger then them all.
    • Phyllis Faberge Johnson
      Everyone knows that false information can be put out…on the internet. If Draya did it shame on her, bt at the sam time lesson learned…Gloria you and your husband has raised hell in fron of your children and you know it…Police, fights Pa-lease. Jackie your alley so I know you have traumatized your children with your fake ass…crying because a 22 year -old may have kissed a guy…you have grandchildren already. Imani you just need to sit your old ass down…and if your not as old as you look…honey that means you have been down through there…lol. Malaysia I have the utmost respect for you…you are what you call a real girlfriend.I hope you and Draya keep in touch.You compliment the word friendship. draya just don’t forget the bridge that carried you over. Malaysia you did right by telling her about the wedding conversation…Jackie just wanted to talk shit about Draya.She was going to put her on blast..that’s why she is really upset she didn’t come…She put a damper on the bullshit she was trying to stress…With her lying ass.
    • Taylor
      Everyone is hating on Draya except Malaysia so hopefully Draya see how real of a friend she is yeah if she did leave her baby alone let that b the 1st n last mistake to every make again. They all want to talk shit bout her child but what about when Imani gave sent her child away like she only had 1 kid to be with a man. Imani is a lonely need a man and emontional rec….Jackie insercured ass who gets married every year cause she must think her husband is goin to leave her so she has to reinsure herself….laura breaking up people family (karma) That why she don’t have a family now…Gloria living off Matt n didn’t like when the miami wives was gaining up on her has now she is acting like the big bad wolf but as it showed while fight her sister she looked like she was getting her ass hit. Draya keep doing you they jus haters cause your pretty and not living off a basketball player they all scared that there husband will leave them.
    • chocolate100
      this bitch laura and her wierdo ass sis and imani acting like they grew up with a silver spoon in they dam mouth. not half the shit that on the internet is 90% true about yall skanky ass maylasia is the only real one big up to u.
  • gretchen
    Wow! Trifling..
  • Alexandra Lilly
    That is just messed up. Who the hell does that? She must not really give a damn about her son. And she doesn’t want to judged but then again the info they have of her ppl wouldn’t be able to help themselves especially when it comes to the story about her child.
    • http://facebook Nikki
      Well maybe she’s learned from her mistakes. We don’t know if she’s taken or plans on taking the road less traveled this go round. I’m not one for judging others for their downfalls only. I’m sure there’s some good in this woman. Number one she’s a mother and she’s someone’s daughter. People do change.
  • http://www.freebiecashsystem.com/kingdomwealth Theresa
    She left her child at home alone while she went out to put food on the table. I can not judge her. I don’t know the whole story. You do what you have to do to feed your child. Hell, if she was out there robbing liquor stores people would still judge. You can not judge unless you’ve walked a mile in her shoes.
    • Tanya
      I agree!!!!!!!!!!!
      • gurl
        me too
    • lkanony
      Welll…..she went out to put food on the table, fine. But I mean really,….NO ONE was available to look after her SEVEN year old kid while she went out trying to bring home the bacon?…No family OR friends or even neighbors? I mean come on…in ANY chosen job or career, that’s the thing that ANY mother does first…cover the basics on who would babysit her child/children PRIOR to looking for a job or before she goes off to work. Otherwise, quiet as it’s kept within these group of women she now finds herself surrounded by, there’s something called public assistance if she had no quick way to get necessities…NECESSITIES mind you NOT material things. At least she would be home with her child UNTIL she can figure out all the details about childcare, and how to progress herself in the process.
    • http://facebook.com vicky
      Yes i agree too , by the does somebody know how old is the child?
      • CHYNA DOLL
        THE CHILE IS 7 SHE IS 25. SHE HAVEN’T FULLY LIVED HER LIFE YET. NO I WOULDN’T DO A THING TO MY 3 YR OLD AND IM 22 BUT I CAN’T SPEAK FOR EVERY1
    • Von
      I do NOT agree! If she was trying to put on the table then that heffer shouldn’t have been at the damn tanning salon when her child called her when he got off the bus! There are NO excuses! While yall worried about her, try to imagine what that little boy must have felt like not having his mother around!
  • kassie195

  • LAUN
    WE ARE SO QUICK TO PASS JUDGEMENT ON THE SHORT COMINGS OF OTHERS! EVERYBODY MAKING COMMENTS & PROBALY HAS DONE THINGS JUST AS TRIFFLING. MAYBE HER BEING ON THE SHOW IS A TURNING POINT IN HER LIFE. WE WEREN’T THERE SO HOW DO WE KNOW ANY OF IT IS TRUE! I LIKE HER & I LIKE THE WAY SHE MAINTAINED WHILE CONSTANLY BEING BASHED AS SHE WAS BEING INTRODUCED TO THE GROUP. WE AS BLACK WOMEN CAN BE SO CONDESCENDING. HELL IF SHE TRYING TO WORK & FEED HER KID, OFFER TO BABYSIT!WE MUST LEARN TO LIFT EACH OTHER UP INSTEAD OF WANTING TO SEE OUR YOUNG BLACK SISTERS FAIL! IF YOU LOOK AT IT THEY ALL ACT LIKE EX-STRIPPERS!
    • http://yahoo Dolores Harrison
      I agree
      Trust me if u wasn’t ,OR IS NOT married to him
      U’RE A KEPT HOE
      BITCHES U ARE ALL HOES
    • yaya7843
      i agree too, it’s a shame when you see older black women acting like insecure judgemental bitches. Draya is not perfect, nobody is. these chicks acting like they still in the hood, a buch of hoodrats. Draya don’t owe any explanations to anyone except to her son. Draya stay strong, positive< stick with the truth and it will set you free. fuck them ho's!!! we as women as mothers and humans all make mistakes, nobody is in any position to judge. Even the most perfect looking families and people have skeletons in their closets. These women should have not put you through the ringer and accepted what you said and moved on. They should have been real mature women and supported you by having your back. And if they felt you were lacking in anyway, then as real wise women who have lived they should have guided you as experienced caring women, taking in a younger woman and mother under their arms.THAT'S WHAT REAL BITCHES DO!!!
  • Roni
    It is awful how she is being treated on the show. The ladies are trying too hard to be mean girls but think that they are being classy. Draya is a human being who has made mistakes just as all of us have in our past and present. We are not on a position to judge, leave the judging to God. The cast of Basketball Wives LA need to grow up. Not all, just some.
    • LaVette
      I totally agree Roni…I think Jackie is so fake and needs to grow up as old as she is. People make mistakes and we don’t know where Draya came from and what type of up bringing she had or was exposed to. Maybe she was on drugs at the time and made a bad decision but she should not be treated the way they treat her. It is sad and she doesn’t deserve it!! She needs guidance and shown the right way. I feel she can bounce back and become a better mother and woman if given the opportunity to do so….LA Bitches, leave Draya the fuck alone!!!! She’s the prettiest too, so they really hate on her!!
  • shawnie
    dnt knw truth dnt jump to conclusions and those chicks on show is haters..
  • Chocolate
    Honestly I always tell myself my kids will NEVER go hungry as long as I have what’s between my legs! Don’t get me wrong I work hard everyday but God forbid something happened to my hob and my kids were hungry lets just say their bellies would be full!
  • Cilla
    It is one thing to do things that are taboo to get by or to do as much as you can or what is within your reach. THAT, I understand and can not judge. What I do “side eyes” at is the fact that this female is still unable to speak properly, still has a stripper mentality or a “stereotypical” hoe tendency. I know people may not like it, but damn if this female did not save money for charm school or etiquette classes or take the time to study other peoples behavior to pick up some manners. How are you going to go study Shakespeare and barely read it. Or how are you going to go to someone else’s gathering and then be kind of disappointed or shocked that it isn’t a sex toy party. Those mannerisms and the wide-eyed, bewildered idiot look give her away. And this is not “hatin” – just letting people know that it doesn’t pass.
    • kimeqb
      It was called a “Passion Party” n wit a bunch of females.. I am college n thought it was a sex toy party myself so whats your point? They should’ve called it a getting to one another party or something. You cantt really blame her for that
    • MsEricah
      All I c is a young blk girl that has been doin/ through a lot. Now she’s getting a lil check from the show. We all try to pull her coat…..plz
      Each and everyone that leaves a comment has shit with y’all as well. Weather it was 5 or 10years ago. So stop….. She’s not in a bad position any more. So blog that……no one perfect
    • http://none 77playmate
      Oh come on now!! Really? Passion party shouldn’t make you think of sex? You trippin. You even didn’t know what kind of party they were having. The last thing anybody thought was a party discussing your goals and dreams. She does need a lot of work I’ll give you that, but the title of the party was an honest mistake that even a Harvard graduate would have made. I think it was purposely meant to allow you to think outside the box, get you curious, and get you to show up. Ever heard of a “play on words”? Yea, you really were hating.
  • dolores
    i used to go to school with andraya howard elementary school, high school, believe what you heard and hear this chic is a horrible person and mother.

      Hey everyone should stop hatin on this chick she’s doin what she has 2 do to provide n get by hell who knows if its all even completely true kids tend 2 exaggerate and cops are quick to point fingers n even if it is true shit happens everyone makes a mistake at some point so she shouldn’t be crucified for it especially if it isn’t true. Don’t believe everything u hear n only half of what u see personally I don’t think she did anything wrong so ima take draya’s sIde n not 2mention she is absolutely gorgeous aint no way a chink that fine gonna do somethin like that

    Unfortunately this is 100% false. She was investigated but there was no history of neglect found.

      She’s a pretty girl and I hope
      the best for her.

    I CANNOT STAND IN JUDGEMENT OF ANYONE, IF SHE DID THIS I PRAY FOR HER; BUT CAN NEVER CONDEMN A SINGLE MOTHER TRYING TO PROVIDE.
  • Martie
    When I was coming up my mother left me in the house by myself and I was around his age and she made sure I had food to eat. I had a key to the front door and when I came home from school I knew to keep the door locked and not to answer the phone. Times today are no different than back in the day. We need to stop making excuses. If that’s the case a lot of parents would be locked up.It’s survival of the fittest right now. You cannot depend on family sometimes to watch your kids.
    • TaCola
      I agree I was a latch key kid and my kids are too. People need to stop with their BS and be real with themselves. Of coarse they are going to bump up the scene. Dog in the cage but urine and feces everywhere. Wake up ppl she is the only that really is being real. She revealed things about her life and none them fake asses is. Their pasts aren’t squeaky clean either
  • MzLanda
    Well I hope that she’s trying to change her life around. That is sad and I wish her nothing but the best.

  • Latasha
    Judging, my opinion, me making a statment! Call it what you want! Who does that! You just don’t do that. I had my son at 19 & no way in hell I would have even came up with this one. Leaving my baby at home to make some money. Not even. But hey that’s what makes this world so different, cause if every thought alike the world would be more messed up than it already is. Yea…you have have to be special to do something of that nature & I don’t me the good special I mean the yellow bus special.
    • Rahshal
      I totally agree wit cha
  • delredd
    yes, i agree that draya was wrong 4 leaving her son alone, but the shit is in the past now. so i hope that draya has learn her lesson from this so lay off her please you’ll know better than these bitches that are on the bbw of la. always on draya time about the same old bulshit that’s enough 2 drive her in 2 sucide. the old ass bitches are jealous of draya look at her she got the looks and body they don’t. so they’ll need 2 shut the fuck up and leave draya alone. she’s the reason i watch the show. the women on bbw of la. are some ugly hard man face bitches i don’t like looking at uglyass women only the pretty 1′s.
  • TaCola
    Being a person that has falsly accused of something by the police I don’t believe a word of it. If she did something like this she would not be in jail or on some kind of probation in Philly. Not able to film or work in LA. She probably was investigated because and found with no rong doing. I’m quite sure some spiteful person called the law on her just because of what she was doing. You would have to be a sick person to leave your child for that long. I don’t believe and being as tho she is on the public eye she does need to.clarify this.
  • http://yahoo Dolores Harrison
    When u’re young and full of u’re self, these things happen.
    But,she has probably learned her lesson now.
    As far as the rest of them
    1.they all jump offs.they all done been around the way a few times,
    With a few players. Don’t forget the ones that aren’t ball players?!
    2.they. are riding on someone elses fame
    3.they all know their husbands,boyfriend’s,ARE NOT FAITHFUL (because
    They know he was probably involved with someone else when he was
    Screwing them) don’t hate the players, hate the game. But. O u played the game too. I guess the rules have changed
    4.all theses bitches is class less
    Their life is he said,she said, I heard
    Kicking each others backs in,
  • http://yahoo Dolores Harrison
    Drays run girl run girl run
    These bitches have nothing positive for u.
    stay with u’re true friends.
    I WONDER WHAT’S IN THEIR CLOSET
    WHAT THEY GOT UNDER COVER
    U LADIES NEED TO FALL BACK SOMEONE KNOWS
    WHAT’S GOING ON.
    DIG THE DIRT UP IN U’RE OWN BACK YARD
    AND WORK ON THAT

    Now Kinshasa is smart
    She didn’t allow these bitches to change her, she
    let them know how she felt
    And,she could hold her own,
    I. Think that’s why she’s Not on show right Now
    because she is true to herself
    something the other wanna be’s should be
    True to self

  • http://www.strippersxrated.com Lisette LaDyxXx
    It’s messed up how they’re all going in on her like that. Alot women strip to pay their bills, however, that other stuff about her child is foul. Anyhow, most dancers I know, either finished paying off college, getting ready for the Bar exam or going to Med school. Oh well, any beautiful women can get a celebrity, because most celebs like the eye candy. The funny thing is, you would think their wifes will be just as hot, because they should have the money to fix themselves up. Not! LMAO
  • fayonna
    PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES AND NO ONE PERSON IS PERFECT.I WONDER IS THE THINGS TRUE THAT ARE ON THE INTERNET ABOUT JACKIE ASS ARE THE REST OF THA BASKETBALL WIFES.I HATE THE WAY THEY TREAT HER THEY JUST MAD CAUSE THEY DONT LOOK LIKE HER.
  • Michelle
    Okay I know this was wrong. My thing is these women are older than Draya and instead of them building up they are breaking this young girl down. I can’t believe these women of their age are acting like this. I see why the other woman left the show. When their children grown up and make the wrong mistakes I want to know are they goign to talk to or assist. I think they are all immature, old miserable women. Who bought her into the circle. Like she said she didn’t ask to me there. They should not be associating with her anyway if they are not going to support and help her grown. She doesnt have to explain iot to her. Laura slept with a married man and went from rich to broke living out of boxes so she got just as much issues and the next. She is 25 years old and she trying to make it happen for her. It might wrong by some folks standards on how she trying to get it but she may need help and guidence on trying to have it the right way. To tell someone they are worthless and you are 20 years their senior…..THEY are worthless because they don’t know how to be supportive and have not grown to a level of maturity yet to give contructive, sincere, adult and wise advise. I don’t respect any of them but Malaysia. She doesn’t judge because she is from the hood and I can tell when she punched Gloria’s sister in the face. They got these retired basketball men’s wives on this show who had nothing going on in their lives before they got there. Get a life! Gloria running around with women her mothers age and acting like she 40 wanting a damn face lift at 25 are you serious. She should be ashamed!
  • Samantha
    After watching today’s episode, I realize that these women are very catty. You shouldn’t medle in other peoples business. You never know what someone has been through and only God can judge. The media always has something to say whether its true or false. Draya does need to grow up and she has a lot to learn but it still gives no one the right to point fingers. Laura didn’t like how it felt when she was accused of sleeping with shaq and now she is pointing the finger like she is better than draya. If draya really did do the things that she was accuseD of, then she has to take that up with God because at the end of the day that is who she will have to face.But nobody else can say anything unless they were there. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Gloria has every reason why she is not married. As someone stated earlier, she is a “kept hoe” lol. Jackie is too old to be behaving the way she does. She is the oldest in the group and you would figure she would be the wisest but she is the one who initiating group meetings about another woman! Who cares! None of the cast really associate with draya like that so I don’t understand why they keep talking about her being in their whack a$$ circle!I have a lot of respect for malaysia because I feel as though she keeps it real 100% of the time and she minds hers! I forgot the other lady’s name, but I respect her as well. She just needs to find herself and get a boo-thang! I feel as though her past relationship really messed her up emotionally.
  • Therese
    I think they are a bunch of nagging bitches, what makes them so much better than Draya. I think they all have dirt that hasn’t come out. That is some bullshit. They not perfect.
  • http://none 77playmate
    It seems that her priorities are in need of some reconstruction. What ever employment she chooses is her business, but the child is the main concern. What happened to the grandmother that the police talked too? Did they have a falling out or something? Yea she kept her place messy, but so many young women do. Always running around after someone or something else. She must have improved because she has since gotten her son back. She said it never happened & someone made it up. Could be true because think about it, since when does child protective services give children back to the parent so quickly? Parents have to jump through all kinds of hoops to get their children back. They have several court dates, someone from social service has to do random checks at the residence to insure that its not a danger to the child, they have some kind of court appointed therapy sessions or classes to complete. So something about this story is a little fishy.
  • shelenebyrd1@yahoo.com
    It is a shame the way these unattactive, fat middle aged women are jumping on this girl. I don’t know what’s real or not. But who are they to judge? They are jealous of this young beautiful woman and that is the bottom line. OMG no one can tell me that they are genuine in their concern for her son. They are over weight, very insecure in their black outfits, ugly hats and clothing. How can they judge with all of these children that they have out of wedlock. Come on.
  • charlie
    You know what Im so sick of this whole storyline. I tend to believe if someone would go on TV and say its not true and someone got arrested and she know it could be proven false by some reporter calling the police dept then maybe its not true. However…if it is true, ‘kay she leavin to work and take care of her kid- Im like the other girl-I cant hate. Could she have done it different? Yes But youd be suprised what alot of young girls have to do to take care of their kids especially when the sperm donators dont contribute or even come around. She good cause she been answering way too many questions and taking way too much sh*t this season-twas me, it would be a different show OKAY. First of all why they so up in arms about what went on in HER life to HER kids. Naw I would have much respect for deadbeat moms (or dads) but I aint gonna go through all the motions to be upset and confrontational cause that sh*t dont affect me or my family personally so why should I have an opinion or attitude? People need to worry about their own life. Laura need to figure how immoral she look f*ckin other peoples husbands. Gloria need to tell why her man really beat her a$$ that night-cause she caught him in some *ish and then jumped on her cause she was up in his face about it. Then Imani….Why is she relevant? She’s somebody’s ex girlfriend and she aint got nobody, and she comes across like she’s someone that came from nothing and now is claiming to be something. FAKE. If this stuff is true about Dreya I just hope things are better now but who are THESE women of all to judge-aint none of them got their sh*t together-REALLY
  • Gethseme
    Please they need to quit why don’t they mention how gloria sister sister slept wither shawnee husband or how imani has another child that she abandoned with her mother cause she didn’t want her finance to know she had another child and she lied to him about her age and the christies please we all know how crazy that witch is she think that stringbean body husband of hers is a god…..sad old witches

    WOW! they (try) to act so perfect! Who are they to pass judgement on Draya, EVERYONE has a fault or has been accused of something that was not true and if it was we are human and we all have and will continue to make mistakes! These are just a bunch of old ass hypocrites who got rich by marrying a bb player, or having a baby daddy! Or even an affair with one! So how many times have some of them been married! Lol!!! Draya you do You! They are a bunch of women who are nothing but JEALOUS of You.. who are just looking and finding a reason to hate you! Forget them negative hypocrites’!

    I LOVE DRAYA AS IF SHE WAS MY OWN DAUGHTER , I WILL BE PRAYING FOR HER THAT GOD CHANGES HER INTO A CIRCLE OF FRIENDS THAT WOULD UPLIFT HER NO MATTER WHAT HER SITUATION IS, BECAUSE BLACK WOMEN IS SO CRITICAL, WHEN YOU DO NOT HAVE NOTHING OR GOING THRU SOMETHING ,THEY WILL NOT GIVE YOU ICE WATER, AND THAT IS WHAT I FOUND IN MY LIFETIME, WHEN BLACK PEOPLE GET A LITTLE BIT MORE BREAD THEN THE OTHER WE SHOULD SHARE IT , THAT IS WHAT GOD WANTS AND EVEN IF WE GET A LITTLE EDUCATED SHARE , THAT WHAT GOD WANTS. THAT IS WHY OTHER NATIONALITIES ALSO STICK TOGETHER AND DO NOT BRICKER AND GET AHEAD AND SHARE WITH THIER PEOPLE AND WE AS BLACK PEOPLE IS STUCK ON THE ELEVATOR STILL ON THE FIRST FLOOR, NOT MOVING UP TO THE TOP, PEACE

    I watch the show every monday and every monday its the same old thing…….draya.I mean what 40 yr. olds talk about nthing but being in their “circle?”If draya really did leave her son alone, everyone makes mistakes.Gloria tries to act like she the shit on her but on the other basketball wives she wasnt nothing.she should know how it feel to be picked on.In my opinion instead of talking about draya they should embrace her.She’s my fav. on the show.I cant stand gloria or laura.

    If ever ever there was a case of green eyed jealousy, these women have it in spades. Especially that wilder beast Laura. Not only does this fat neck bulldog looking pink lipstick wearing bully reeekkkk of it, she’s beginning to let it consume her. How sad a commentary for women to be so jealous of someone that it clouds their ability to act sensibly. I’m embarrassed for all of them. Thank God for Malaysha and Draya to show these clowns what real women of class can achieve….when confronted with jealousy…they simply keep it moving. Jackie, Laura, Gloria and Imani….please do us all a huge favor…grow the fu*** up!!
  • soccermop59
    One last thing…..to all those who are hating on Draya…there but by the grace of God, anybody could go. Thank God, you had people in your lives to help your raise your children. Draya no matter what, please please don’t let anybody bring you down. You are soo pretty and got so much going on. Be a good mother to your son, be there always for him and show these ladies how adversity and hard times can be over come and conquered. Good luck and know that your fans all are rooting for you and your success….team Draya all the way!! Child we’ve all been down the road of hard times.

    Everyone is so focused on Draya. Yall need to mind ur damn buisness. Only Draya knows the truth abt what really happened. Laura got rumors on her for fuckin Shack when he was married to Shaunie. Is that true?? Gloria got rumors for having an abusive, dysfunctional relationship with her man. Is that true?? Some of these women on Basketball Wives arent even WIVES, and all of those who attack Draya need to worry abt their lives only bc none of yall are perfect. PERIOD
  • Phyllis Faberge Johnson
    Shaunie Gloria, Laura, Jackie,and Imani should have bee on the reserve team…how in the hell did they get to be on the damn show…smh. I hope there isn’t a season two for these chicks…I’m not watching. Put, Tami, Royce, Malaysia, Drya…dumb Susie, Evelyn and Jennifer together. La LA is too sophisticated for all of them..so, she wasn’t named to be in the “foolery”.
  • ELANDA
    I personally think,these group of chick’s suck,they too fake,too phony,and wanna be gansta’s.I can’t stand Gloria since the first Basketball wives,cause she thought her shit was all perfect,and her Matt was the same as all the rest of the men in the N.B.A,A DAMN DOG.I really can’t stand her sister,SHE’S A STRAIGHT UP HOE,i still have not yet to find out if her baby belong’s to SHAQ or ARENA’S.Malaysia is cool Drya is young and need too get it together,but she’s cool.THE REST OF THOSE OLD CHICK’S NEED TO GET IT TOGETHER AND ACT THEIR AGE’S AND NOT THERE SHOE SIZE!!!!!!!
  • Ayanna

  • http://priscillarogers81@yahoo.com BamBam
    eff the dumb shit..We all know how the media can really blow up a story. If true, Iam sure Draya will learn from it like we all make stupid mistakes and learn.. Iam really getting tired of how blackwomen r being portrayed on television. Jackie, honey, u r just too old to act like that. Youre afraid that ur old ass is gonna loose ur husband and he dont even look good at all. If I were Draya I would have ur husband just to see u cringe…Draya can do this you know……..
  • DivaBlk
    I am so mad that I even gave basketball wives La air time on my tv!I can’t believe grown ass women are behaving this way! They are like a senior citizen version of mean girls,I mean seriously!I dare anyone of them to raise their hands and say they have been the perfect mother. People make mistakes and what’s in the past is in the past. I hate the term “Jump off” and this girl being referred to as one just because she stripped and is very beautiful! Get yall fat asses in the gym and stop disliking her and get like her then you won’t have to worry about her around your man! And Laura the ultimate jump off and home wrecker how dare you u got you 15 minutes of fame by sleeping with someone’s husband allegedly! Who were u before then cuz right now your a NON-MUTHA FUCKIN FACTOR! Why are u even on the show. Yall are basically jump offs from the tru basketball wives of MIAMI! And Jackie your ass is too old to behave in such a manner get some class about yourself as a black woman I am totally embarrassed by you behavior. Malasia your a great friend I’m glad Draya has you on her side at least. And Gloria not even worth discussing. As a woman I can say I may not have all the money,accolades and access that these ladies have but I am content being me with what I do have and not riding the coat tails of my husband, ex-husband,fiance,ex-fiance who happens to be a ball player. Money doesn’t make me but you ladies are a prime example that money doesn’t bring about morales, character or decency. I’m just totally disgusted my only reason for continuing to watch is in hopes that Draya really let yall ass have it! Keep you head up Draya!

    Draya, you inspire me. Keep your head up and ignore the drama behind them haters. Jackie Christie: Everybody has to exit the road eventually. And, I see your exit coming up. So get off the road bish. Let that Bently named Draya have the lane.

    Personally, I don’t believe everything the media puts out there. I am quite sure that haters can be found to lie and say things that are false…I’ve seen it all before. As far as that goes, ask the troublemaker Imani about disowning her son to be w/Steven and lying about her age.Ask that less than feminine Laura about her affair w/Shaq; were those faked emails? Ask Both Govan sisters about their illegitimate children and the respect, or lack thereof that their “fiances” show them.Ask walrus neck ass Jackie what the impetus, or should I say dirt, does she have on that emasculted man that allows him to show the indignity of him marrying her over and over again. That’s not love, it’s purgatory.As for the poster who said Draya doesn’t speak properly, I haven’t seen that. Compared to those stupid and jealous heifers, Draya has carried herself w/class and dignity. I don’t know what she may or may not have done, no one does.Trust and believe, we’ve all done something we;re not proud of.Malaysia has my respect as well. Not only has she shown kindness to Draya, she kicked Laura’s ass!
    I hope Malaysia and Draya both recieve their dreams.They’re earning their own way and not living off their baby’s daddies.By the way,the Govan girls try to appear as though they’re close; why isn’t Laura storing her things at Gloria’s house? Matt probably knows she tricked w/Shaq.
    Keep it real ladies, if you’re so worried about Draya messing w/your men,it simply means that you don’t trust THEM!!!

    I’m not condoning ANY type of child neglect, but who is ANYONE to judge? ??!! Only GOD CAN JUDGE & ill leave it at that. ((:
  • Jay Stone
    It’s not surprising that a bunch of fat, fake, ugly females wouln’t hate on such a gorgeous girl like Draya. She is so fine and all the other fat asses know it. They all talk behind draya’s back like they’re in freakin high school. It’s real lame, get a life fat bitches.
