It’s a family-filled time of year for all of your favorite reality stars who have been posting a lot of photos in between Christmas and the New Year. It seems like everyone went on a family vacation this week… just in time to share some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup.
Draya Michele of the reality series Basketball Wives L.A. is preggers and her baby daddy is NFL Dallas Cowboys, Orlando Scandrick. The coupling has been fodder for the press over the two years they’ve been together for disturbing headlines about their nuclear relationship. Draya and Orlando constantly ‘break up, to make up’ and now, the reality show celeb set the record straight regarding her drama-filled life, revealing to the site how she and her man are just “your typical soap opera black couple.”
Talk about a story line (you realize this means there is going to be another season of Basketball Wives: LA, right?)! Of course, she has to actually be on the show to have a story line, and that’s up in the air for this multi-tasking diva! Draya Michele has just announced that she is expecting a baby with Orlando Scandrick, her fiancé. I remember when the two announced their engagement as last season of BBWLA aired. Am I the only one who missed that these two got back together after a very public break-up? Apparently yes…and I work here. Yo-yo relationship, anyone?
While the thirty-year-old reality star is already a mom to thirteen-year-old son Kniko, this with be Draya’s first child with the Dallas Cowboys cornerback. Orlando is the father to six-year-old twins Tatiana and Taylor from a previous relationship. Draya recently shared that the couple will be welcoming a son in late April evening out the sibling dynamic. Congratulations to the happy couple!
I know, I know, we hear this all of the time. Reality television is not all that it is cracked up to be, right? But this coming from any one of the Basketball Wives stars…well, we would think that they knew what they were getting into, at least drama-wise, right? Not so. At least according to former Basketball Wives L.A. star Draya Michele.
Instead, Draya Michele says that reality television can ruin your life. Yep, in a new interview, Draya talks about her departure from the show, as well as the dangers of being on a reality show. Hmm, I never thought of reality television as dangerous, have you?

Basketball Wives LA is planning ahead – which means coming back for more! With season 4 currently airing, VH1 decided to renew the dramatic franchise for a 5th season citing strong ratings.
BBW:LA currently dominates the Sunday night cable ratings among 18-34 year olds. This season’s drama centers around Draya Michele – naturally – and also brought old favorites Tami Roman and Shaunie O’Neal out of retirement since original Basketball Wives was canceled.
Boss Jackie Christie has alienated almost every co-star on Basketball Wives LA, but Draya Michele isn’t far behind when it comes to upsetting friends. After Jackie and Brandi Maxiell’s explosive French fry altercation, the women were back last night to instigate more drama. Bring on dodge ball! The episode begins with Brandi meeting up with Mehgan Jones after their brawl in Santa Barbara. The two ladies have forgotten their smack down, and are instead blaming Jackie for all of their issues. As to whether Jackie is still hosting a cancer event to celebrate Brandi…that’s still up in the air! Brandi and Mehgan seem to have forgotten their punching match a few weeks earlier in lieu of bonding over how much they dislike Jackie.
Meanwhile, Jackie is recapping the insanity differently by sharing with Shaunie O’Neal that her latest experience with Mehgan who renders the suggestion that everyone bring tennis shoes? For fighting? Nostrils tempers that the tennis shoes were probably an invitation to exercise. Mehgan is meeting with Malaysia Pargo and Angel Brinks, and she reveals that she wants to unleash her anger on Jackie by hosting a dodge ball tournament. That’s much kinder than I expected.
Tonight is another episode of Basketball Wives LA, and the drama among the ladies is amped up ridiculously high. Sometimes it’s nice to take a step back from the show and remember that the women have lives outside of reality television. Of course, the show is what afforded the stars the multitude of branding and promotional opportunities!
Malaysia Pargo is gracing the cover of next month’s Kontrol Magazine. The Pre-Fall #PureGlamour Issue features the mother of three donning a hand-beaded Adolfo Sanchez gown and a one of a kind Fiori Couture corset. The magazine, which is available on newsstands and at Barnes and Noble on September 4, includes an interview with its BBWLA cover model where Malaysia dishes on her family, new relationships, and growing her empire.
