Basketball Wives LA: JET Magazine Cover

  • Pin It

The cast of Basketball Wives: LA are on the cover of JET Magazine for the October 3rd issue.

Draya Michele on getting arrested for leaving her son home alone:
[The rumors about my son] get addressed on the show. I will say you can’t believe everything you hear. It is very hard being a mom in the industry. My mother is my support system. She lives in Pennsylvania with my son. We see each other almost every week. He stays with her while I’m here working.”

Laura Govan on her relationship with baby daddy, Gilbert Arenas:
A piece of paper saying you’re married doesn’t define [the relationship]. I’ve been with Gilbert for 10 years; we’re married— I don’t give a damn what he says. He’s the father of my four children. I don’t see any other man in the household with me.

Gloria on her relationship with Shaunie:
There is no relationship. She’s the show’s executive producer due to legalities. Obviously, when we see each other, we’re cordial. We don’t like each other, but we leave it there.

      when I say these ladies in LA are a mess! I like the Miami cast, drama is too much but one thing you can’t take from most of them, they are always together. Shaunie has done a 360 and I have to give her props all day long, she looks amazing, as do Jenn & Eve! I have been impressed with no one on the LA show and someone, I believe Jackie had the nerve to say you have to step your game up in LA! Honey did you get your own memo? One episode they all got makeovers for her bachelor party and I’m thinking well who made them up Moms Mabley! She looked a mess, Laura looks like a drag queen with nice hair, Gloria looks ok, thank god for her hair, but that bird face and fake snob attitude toward Draya, honey your a jump off with a key stop playing! Draya love her or hate her is beautiful and young and as a 30 something woman who holds her own, I hate to see older woman hating because you let yourself go. And to call her a jump off she did what all of them did, slept with a ball player except a few of you managed to get a ring! She is young and trust some young ball player will wife her before Imani, Gloria or Laura ever get to say I do. Gilbert & Matt are doing the “cheaper to keep her” thing, period! Mylasia or however you spell it is very attractive, but she too is a bum. Have you seen the $5 outfits this chic wears and has the nerve to say I like nice things. No disrespect your from the hood, so you have no clue. Jimmy Choo wouldn’t want a bum like these ladies in his shoes. All of them mostly I would see in the streets of Baltimore and no one would notice them except Draya. So for the medicare crew stop hating, you make the other ones of us in our 30’s who unlike you all are fly, look bad! I love Miami, and I’m sure Evelyn is sitting back in tears laughing at these bum broads calling them all Non-Mothaf*cking factors!! LMAO!!

    Imani is a old heavy bitter judgmental bitch, no one owes u anything. Draya is young, fresh, and petty. She is 25 and she made mistakes that we dont know everything. I pretty sure it is worst mothers out here. That pimp their children for drug money. I heard Imani hid her first child from stephen. Imani get a new wig!!!

    I thought Basketball Wives Miami was bad! Good GAWD, the “ladies” in L.A. are a disgrace to ALL women. I don’t know who “Queen Jackie” thinks she is. She talked about Draya the worst, then going to get upset cause she didn’t attend her wedding. Draya owed that stuck up cow no kind of explanation or apology. And, Gloria…, GURL, I didn’t hear you say you would kick Shaunie’s A$$ like you did with Mylasia. And, I’m going to stop it with that, cause the rest of those over stuffed cows in mini dresses aren’t even worth discussing!

    idon’t like draya or gloria. they shouldn’t be on the show. gloria is such a phoney with no personality. she’s got only her boyfriend, baby daddy, going for her. I can’t stand draya, she;s an undesireable with absolute No Class. Miami is so much better. I really like Maylasia and the others. draya and gloria should be replaced. I don’t believe the child would be w/ draya’s mother if there wasn’t something to the police report. she’s just a hood rat or lower. Who does that, it so low

    Shame on you JET Magazine!!! Both shows (LA and Florida) are TRASH and a disgrace to black women and the NBA.  Money can’t buy class, either you are born with it or you are not. These chicks are washed up and used up (with their disgusting potty mouths), they need to get a life!!! Can these ladies do something more rewarding and beneficial to the human race… support an orphanage in Africa, raise Aids Awareness, raise money for the Sickle Cell Foundation, or just Be Better Role Models, etc, “Not all money is good money”, clean up your image and keep it clean for the Project Girls and other young people watching your show(otherwise your labor is in vain!). My children are banned from watching these shows (garbage in garbage out). I support a better tomorrow. Thank God for the Obama’s and people like them who are really trying to make a change and lift the image of the black race. “Jesus wept…my people will parish for ignorance.” Wake Up Black America!!
