And with a tweet, she was gone! The insanity that is Basketball Wives: L.A. is down one crazy lady…even though she leaves much crazier co-stars in her wake! Draya Michele announced via Twitter that she has quit. In fact, the most recently aired episode was her last.
What is Malaysia Pargo going to do being the only voice of reason left? I feel for her. It seems that Draya could no longer stomach her story line which revolved around her budding relationship with NFL star Orlando Scandrick. Unfortunately for Draya, Orlando had a romance with Wacky Jackie Christie's daughter before meeting the reality star/video vixen/bikini designer. It's made things a bit awkward for Dray this season.
Um, so, ahh…I'm not quite sure what to do with this post. Perhaps I should preface it with situations like this is likely how Jackie Christie got the nickname "Wacky Jackie." Maybe I should categorize it under "where in the H-E-double hockey sticks do paps get their questions?"…I'm just not quite sure.
The Basketball Wives: L.A. star was minding her own business, leaving the mall with pal Sundy Carter, when a paparazzo stops them with an interesting inquiry. In the minute that transpired on video, Jackie and Sunday respond by describing how to torture a mean ol' cat. Confused yet? Me too!
Do y'all miss Brooke Bailey on this season of Basketball Wives: LA? That's what I thought. While Brooke was likeable on the show, I didn't feel like she had much of a story line unless she was fighting with Jackie Christie or feuding with former friend Draya Michele. She just didn't seem to be around a lot.
Of course, don't feel bad for Brooke no longer being featured on everyone's guilty pleasure of a train wreck. Wanting to set an example for her two children, Brooke has gone back to school and is focused on her new cleanse and lingerie line. Would she consider reality television again? Well, what do you think! As long as it's drama-free! Drama-free reality television? That's an oxymoron if I've ever heard one!
Sometimes I feel sorry for VH1. It tries, it really does. The networks problem is saturation. One reality series is going well? Let's copy it in film a franchise in every state! These basketball players' wives are causing major drama and enticing viewers? Let's find more basketball wives? Wait, there aren't any? Well, that's okay! Let's find some women who maybe dated, had a baby with, or got an autograph from an NBA player. That's the same, right?
You know where I'm going with this, don't you? It's time to welcome back the women of Basketball Wives: L.A. to our televisions! It seems like they've been gone forever…and I haven't really missed them, to be honest. We'll see some new of our old favorites (is Draya Michele's new beau dating Jackie Christie's daughter too?), and some new faces who are already fitting right in. One of the new ladies has an online business with an "F" rating from the Better Business Bureau! Sounds about right!
Good ol' Wacky Jackie is up to her antics yet again, and this time she's channeling her inner E.L. James! Basketball Wives: LA star Jackie Christie recently launched her new book Sexual Relations: A His & Her Guide to Greater Intimacy, but she's not planning to stop there!
No ma'am. Jackie has bigger plans than reality television and kinky tomes. She's moving on to film, y'all! Just wait until you hear about Jackie's latest project!
Don't lie. Y'all have missed Somaya Reece since she departed from Love & Hip Hop. I know I have, and I certainly didn't have to refresh my memory as to what she looks like or the drama she caused during her tenure on VH1. Clearly it wasn't much or she'd likely still be on it!
I have to commend her from taking a break from scripted cat fights, girl drama, and drink tossing that has become synonymous with all VH1 reality shows. But it begs the question…what is Somaya doing now?
The singer and former reality star recently checked in with the folks of The Jasmine Brand. While Somaya is no longer gracing the small screen on L&HH, she's mastered the art of reality television stardom: do everything! Whether it's schlep a cocktail with your name on it or taking credit for some ghostwriter penning your life story, do it! I kid. Kind of.
