Since episode one, the ladies of “Basketball Wives LA” seemed to be going after Draya. Unsurprisingly, as any good boyfriend would, her NFL-playing boo, Orlando Scandrick, is clearly not too pleased about it. Though only two episodes from the new season have aired so far, Draya says that the Dallas Cowboys cornerback is already suggesting that she quit the show.
“You know what? I think it’s been really hard on my boyfriend,” Draya said during an interview with Big Boy’s Neighborhood. “We watch it together and he’s came to the point already. It’s been episode one, we saw 60 minutes of what is going to be going on for 12 weeks and he’s like ‘You know what? I don’t think you should do this next year. How much are they paying you again? I’ll pay you double to sit your a** on the couch.'”
Dating a reality star certainly is not for the faint of heart. Later this season Orlando will also find himself at the center of some of the controversy, as viewers will soon witness Draya’s co-star Jackie Christie accuse him of cheating on Draya with her daughter, Chantel. While it doesn’t appear that Draya will be taking Orlando up on his offer anytime soon, she did share that she plans to eventually leave the show.
“Well, I think that ‘Basketball Wives’ is my date to the prom so I gotta dance with her for a little bit because that’s who I came with,” she explained. “But I don’t have to go home to her at the end of the night. So I would like to do my own thing eventually. Once the ‘Basketball Wives’ train comes to a stop, I would like to graduate into the Draya Show and I’m already transitioning into that.”
