“Weak A** Ni**a”: Draya Michele Blasts Boyfriend Orlando Scandrick For Publicly Flirting With A Woman On Instagram

Basketball Wives star Draya Michele has been riding pretty hard for boyfriend Orlando Scandrick of the Dallas Cowboys since last year. When they filmed the most recent season of BBWLA, she defended him and his character against crazy Jackie Christie and her daughter, Chantel, and just this past May, she thanked him and his two daughters for making her a better mother and a better person.

“Orlando : you added to my load but I want you to know that I love those little girls and I take pride in putting home cooked meals on those tinkerbell plates, brushing up that hair and doing finger curls, painting those toenails, and buying pink and purple of the tiniest little clothes. I taught those girls how to swim last weekend and I love our family. Thanks for giving me the experience of helping you with your babies.”

But now, she’s putting him on blast. Scandrick posted the very adorable picture above, which is of his twin daughters kicking back and watching television. According to Bossip (who has pictures to back up everything), the follower of the footballer joked and commented on the picture saying, “I wanna play with them.” Scandrick boldly responded to her saying “you can babysit and play with as long as you want.”

Yeah. Kind of inappropriate.

Draya reportedly saw this and calmly put both Scandrick and the follower on front street (as I like to say):

“soon you’ll be able to … @oscandrick32 invite her over”

“Watch this weak h*e be on mediatakeout tomorrow’

“With a weak a** ni**a”

Scandrick went ahead and deleted the picture to avoid the drama, but it’s a little too late for all that. All this occurred as rumors were flying about whether or not the couple had broken up due to Scandrick stepping out on the beauty. But Draya told TMZ the other day that her relationship is still going strong. “I am not single, I’m damn near married. I’m good. I’m happy.”

Hey, maybe she’s forgiven and forgotten! For now…

 

 

BBWLA Star Draya To Reduce Breast Size Because ‘Fake Tiddays’ Are ‘Out Of Style’

First she added a little length to her skirts, now she’s getting rid of her signature boobs.

“Basketball Wives LA” star Draya Michele recently announced to fans that she’ll be having surgery to reduce her breast size in September. While women get breast reductions all of the time, what’s interesting about Draya deciding to shrink her girls is that she actually paid to get them that size in the first place. Nevertheless, the reality star seems to have mentally outgrown them.

“Saying bye bye to my ‘girls’ in September,” Draya tweeted yesterday evening.

It appears that she’s going under the knife in the name of fashion, as well as her newfound quest to look more “natural.”  According to Draya, her large breast give her a “skanky” look that she’s no longer going for.

“I’m tired of these boobs making everything look all skanky all the time,” she added. “Flat a** and chest makes clothes look better, girls. And take it from me, this fake tidday phase is outta style.”

“I like natural boobs like Rihanna’s.”

Since the last season of “Basketball Wives LA,” we’ve witnessed Draya sort of take on somewhat of a new identity and express desires to present herself as “wife material.”

What are your thoughts on her decision?

“You Cute Tho”: Malaysia Pargo Says She’s NOT Dating Mase, Though She Does Find Him Attractive…

Basketball Wives LA star Malaysia Pargo recently decided to file for divorce from her husband and the father of her three kids, Jannero Pargo, after telling viewers of the show that he had cheated at one point. Her people sent a statement to us earlier this week letting the world know that despite this difficult time, they want to put their children first: 

“Our family is our top priority and while we have decided to amicably go our separate ways, we ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time. We are both committed parents and plan to remain friends as we co-parent our three children.  At this time we do not wish to discuss the details of our divorce. “

And just as quick as the two announced the end of their marriage, a source told HipHollywood that Pargo had started seeing Mase of all people, who has been separated from his wife Twyla for two years, and is in the process of his own divorce as well. They said this: 

“They’ve been dating for about two months. She really likes him and they really connect on a spiritual level. They’ve been spending a lot of time together.”

But Pargo took to Instagram to make it clear that she’s single as a dollar bill, and not looking for anything at this time but a stronger relationship with God. Though she does find Mase attractive… 

“I’m not dating anyone but GOD…but Mase you cute tho”

So nothing going on between them as of right now…but how cute would they be in the future? Okay, okay, let me stop.

Unfortunately, another offense has been added to Sundy Carter’s criminal rap sheet. According to E!, the “Basketball Wives LA” star has been arrested on DUI charges.

The Glendale Police Department confirmed today that Carter was pulled over after allegedly crossing a double yellow line in her vehicle; driving westbound in an eastbound traffic lane. The incident happened on Tuesday during the wee hours of the morning. After being pulled over, the mother of three was asked to give a blood or breath sample. She decided to give a breath sample. The test revealed that her BAC was .18 percent. Mind you, the legal limit is .08 percent.

She was arrested and booked on DUI charges. LAPD sources say that she was released later that day after posting $10,000 bail. The controversial reality star is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow morning regarding the charges.

Representatives on behalf of Carter have yet to comment on her arrest.

Malaysia Pargo Releases Statement On Divorce

Over the weekend news broke that Basketball Wives cast member Malaysia Pargo has filed for divorce from her husband of eight years, Charlotte Bobcats’ player Jannero Pargo. Unbeknownst to most, Malaysia and Jannero had actually been separated since December 2012, with the reality TV star only recently filing formal divorce docs in L.A. County Superior court citing irreconcilable differences. Almost as soon as this news was released, rumors starting coming out of the woodwork about Malaysia being romantically involved with rapper-turned-preacher Mason Betha, a.k.a. Mase, and upon hearing that news we had to reach out to the soon-to-be-ex Mrs. Pargo to see what the deal is.

Though her publicist wouldn’t speak on the dating rumors, we did receive this statement confirming the split:

“Our family is our top priority and while we have decided to amicably go our separate ways, we ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time. We are both committed parents and plan to remain friends as we co-parent our three children.  At this time we do not wish to discuss the details of our divorce.”

According to TMZ, Malaysia is seeking sole legal and physical custody of her and Jannero’s 7-year-old and 3-year-old twins, allowing visitation for him. She’s also requesting spousal support and coverage of her legal fees throughout the divorce proceedings. Here’s hoping this won’t turn into a bitter custody battle.

In case you missed it, earlier this week, to honor Mother’s Day, reality star Draya Michele wrote a beautiful message on Instagram about growing as a mother, and the impact that her son, her boyfriend Orlando Scandrick, and his two little girls have had on her. When we first had the chance to get to know the Basketball Wives LA star, she was being dogged by her cast mates during the first season for mistakes she made as a young mother while raising her son Kniko. But she says that she’s come a long way, and she has her new “family” to thank for that.

“These kids are my life…. I didn’t start out knowing everything about being the best mother, I had to learn as I go.. I know now that I have an exceptional son, who gets good grades, is healthy, and ambitious, loves soccer and school. And Orlando : you added to my load but I want you to know that I love those little girls and I take pride in putting home cooked meals on those tinkerbell plates, brushing up that hair and doing finger curls, painting those toenails, and buying pink and purple of the tiniest little clothes. I taught those girls how to swim last weekend and I love our family. Thanks for giving me the experience of helping you with your babies.”

Draya and Orlando Scandrick have been dating for a little over a year now, and when asked by Arsenio Hall if she thought she would want to spend the rest of her life with him, she said “I do!” She definitely seems happy, and ready to put all her energy into her new family. Now all needs now is to leave that BBWLA foolishness alone…

‘It’s Very Stressful:’ Sundy Carter Says Reality TV Put A Strain On Her Relationship

Reality TV has its pluses and its minuses. And according to “Basketball Wives LA” rookie Sundy Carter, one of the minuses from her debut season on the series is that it placed a huge strain on her relationship.

“It’s very stressful, the show just kinda takes over your entire life,” Sundy recently told The Jasmine Brand. “You dream about it, you wake up thinking about it. It’s a lot to deal with when you have to get up and actually prepare to go in and you don’t know what your’e actually going into. Its kind of like the lion’s den and so all you hear about is ‘Basketball Wives,’ its like that’s all you hear about in the house and nobody really wants to hear that all day, so that would probably be just it.”

Speaking of relationships, Sundy also says that her situation with her daughter has drastically improved.

“It’s gotten better, definitely gotten better,” she said. “I was very surprised, actually, with the show and I didn’t know what kind of impact the show would have on the kids. And it actually brought us closer, so I’m really happy about that.”

As for what she thinks is the biggest misconception floating around about her is:

“I think the biggest misconception would be that I am this evil devil, cruel, cold-hearted, snake in the grass kind of woman and I’m just not. I’m a sweetheart, I’m very loving, caring.”

She also discussed being publicly scolded by executive producer Shaunie O’Neal for the comments she made about co-star Brandi Maxiell.

“I wasn’t surprised when she made that statement. I felt like she’s the executive producer so you do owe the audience an explanation that’s watching your show.”

Is Draya Michele Shooting A VH1 Spin-Off?

When Draya Michele refused to film the “Basketball Wives LA” reunion with her fellow co-stars a few weeks ago, the line of separation that she’s seeking to draw between herself and the rest of the cast became apparent. But recent rumors may offer a bit more clarity about why.

According to The Jasmine Brand, the mother and reality star is currently filming a pilot for her very own VH1 spin-off. If reports are correct, then the beans were spilled at Draya’s First Annual Women’s Empowerment Brunch, which took place yesterday at the Xen Lounge. Sources say that VH1 cameras were rolling during the event and all attendees were required to sign  nondisclosure forms.

It’s also probably worth it to note that just a couple of weeks ago, as rumors began to swirl that “Basketball Wives: LA” had been canceled, Draya took to Twitter with news that herself and VH1 have been collaborating on a project

“Just spoke to @VH1 and the rumors about canceling #BBWLA are 100% false,” she tweeted. “You know I know.”

“And trust you haven’t seen the last of Draya…I’m just getting started.”

“Big. Huge. Plans. For. Draya at @VH1!!!”

“Just know whatever my plans are @VH1 has my back!” she added.

Well, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this one out.

Do you think you’d be interest in seeing Draya’s spin-off?

‘Sundy’s Boyfriend Grabbed Brandi Up:’ Jackie Christie Talks ‘BBWLA’ Reunion Show Riot

If you were able to catch the “Basketball Wives LA” reunion show last night, you saw that it was an absolute madhouse. But according to BBWLA vet Jackie Christie, there’s a lot more to the insanity that viewers didn’t even get to witness due to editing by VH1. As you may recall, tension between VH1 rookies Sundy Carter and Brandi Maxiell erupted into a physical altercation.

“The reunion was bananas! When I say bananas…I haven’t been in an all out riot in 20 years. I couldn’t believe it!” Jackie told Mara The Hip Hop Socialite. “They [Brandi and Sundy] jumped up, and the next thing you know, I’m taking my shoes off to run and get in the middle. Not to fight necessarily, but if need be, I’m going to grab them in a chokehold, that’s what I am going to do.”

Jackie went on to describe the altercation, which got so intense that it resulted in a riot with the audience rushing the stage.

“So when all the ruckus started happening, the audience actually ran down on to the stage – it was bizarre,” she explained. “British takes off running to the right, everybody else crashes the stage. I mean they just came from everywhere! They were running from up under bleachers; they were running everywhere. Brandi, in between all the chaos, she makes it around the group and tries to run at Sundy, but I’m protecting Sundy and the whole group of her family got around her and some of the people that I brought. You know I had a few people I invited.”

As things escalated, Jackie says that at one point, Brandi was estrained by Sundy’s boyfriend.

“I didn’t see the actual blows being thrown, but Sundy told me that she swung a shoe and hit Brandi with the shoe in her face. I don’t know because I didn’t see it, but I do know that it was straight chaos. It was a free-for-all. People were fighting, Sundy’s boyfriend grabbed Brandi up, you know, and told her ‘you’re not going to touch her.’ She was cursing at him; it was crazy. People were fighting, camera guys got hit by accident trying to film. It was an all out brawl pretty much.”

Things got so crazy, VH1 producers eventually had to escort the entire audience out of the studio.

“They made the whole audience get out and went ballistic, and was like, ‘everyone needs to leave – this is uncalled for, this is intolerable’. Shed Media, everybody, VH1, everybody was very on point in getting the audience out of there. It had become a very hostile situation pretty quickly, but I didn’t actually see any physical violence, I just seen that it was chaos. Things flying through the air and people screaming and all kinds of stuff. Yeah, it was straight chaos! I couldn’t believe it.”

Brandi also took to Twitter to confirm that Sundy’s boyfriend did, in fact, put his hands on her.

Brandi Maxiell Weighs In On Co-Star’s Insensitive Cancer Comments & The Current State Of Her Health

Last night “Basketball Wives LA” fans across the country gasped in horror as they witnessed VH1 newbie Sundy Carter hit co-star Brandi Maxiell completely below the belt.

“Go take your medication,” Sundy spat at Brandi in the midst of a heated argument. “Go try to make a baby, I have three,” she added.

Throughout her debut season of ‘BBWLA,’ Brandi has been open about her battle against ovarian cancer and the struggles that she has been facing to conceive the second child that she and her husband have been so desperately longing for. Naturally, Sundy’s low-blow comments didn’t sit well with many—including the show’s executive producer Shaunie O’Neal.

“I want to apologize for the comments made on tonight’s show,” Brandi expressed in a heartfelt Instagram post following last night’s season finale. “For anyone out there whose lives have been affected by this horrible disease, I’m sorry.”

“I love you guys for all the support you have given me. It took me a long time to muster up the strength to even talk about my situation publicly.”

Her post continues:

“I’m forever grateful for my miracle baby, I’m grateful for the breath that I have inside of me. I thank God everyday. I will continue to spread awareness and the importance of getting checked, because I would never want you to go through what I have to endure daily with checkups and struggles to have a child. My husband and my son are the reasons I have the motivation to keep pushing. Without them I’m nothing.”

The reality star also recently sat down with HipHollywood, where she discussed the current state of her health and her progress with IVF treatment.

“I didn’t do this show to argue with these women,” Brandi explained. “I did this show to show and bring awareness to my cancer. Everyone can relate—whether they’ve had ovarian cancer, colon cancer, breast cancer, whatever. Somebody can relate. And I had fertility issues. I just wanted to talk about that.”

Unfortunately, the basketball wife is still grappling with fertility issues.

“Fertility is still tough,” she confessed.

The good news, however, is that she’s still cancer free.

“If I have a cramp in my stomach or a pain in my stomach or a headache I’m like, ‘Oh my God!’ But I’m good with the cancer. I have levels that are still up and down, but with the fertility, it’s still not good.”
