You either love her, or hate her. I personally don’t care for the ditzy broad but to each their own. Draya Michele has grown on a lot of Basketball Wives viewers since the second episode aired this week. A lot of it has to do with the way Imani treated her, some of it may have to do with the fact that you may have forgot she is a horrible excuse for a mother. Either way, Vibe Vixen sat down with Draya for an interview full of talking around in circles and beating around bushes. Lucky for you, I’m here to offer my own colorful commentary to the mix.
Check out some excerpts from the interview below:
You’re obviously pegged as the girl who’s going to shake up the show, but how do you want to portrayed on the show?
Hopefully, after editing and everything, it changes some people’s opinions of me. I know what to expect, so I won’t be shocked if a lot more people hate me than they already do. People don’t always have the nicest things to say about me, so I’m used to it already.
I want people to see what I do and how I live me life, just so they have a better understand of what it is that I do. A lot of people are confused about how I live my life and why I live my life a certain way and I’m able to travel so much. I want to put a light on what [my life] really is. It is not always a party. I don’t look at a party as a party; I look at a party as a job, so [the show] will let people know what is really going on inside of my world.
Can you let people know what you do?
I do everything. Anything and everything I can get my hands on out here in LA, I’m into it. I’m doing my acting, my modeling and starting a business–a million things.
(Eleven8’s Thoughts: In other words you suck and f-ck. I mean, how else can you not describe what you do? If you ask a painter what they do, they’ll tell you they paint. You ask a lawyer what they do, they tell you they practice law. You ask a sucker and f-cker what she does, she talks around in circles and says “Oh, I do it all”)
In a perfect world, how would you like to expand your brand? What would you want to be?
I would want to be a boss somewhere with my name on some stuff, sitting up and paying other people to run my business.
(Eleven8’s Thoughts: What do you even do????????????? *question marks continue til I run out of room on the internet*????????)
Now, make it clear — what’s you connect to the basketball world?
Basically, now I’m friends with a bunch of wives and I dated a basketball player before. I mean, it was nothing currently or anything like that. It was a couple years ago. No big deal.
(Eleven8’s Thoughts: You’re friends with whom? And you dated a basketball player before? As in a single player? As in one? I’ll give you that. You may have DATED one player, but you dropped your draws for the entire league.)
Do you have any close friends in the industry or on the show?
Close friends is a touchy [thing] for me. As far as models go, I like to keep most of them as associates. Girls are designed to disappoint you, so I am very careful and selective of who I call my friends. I don’t really want to shout anybody out as my friend, but I do have some. Everybody don’t hate me [laughs]. I got a personality that if you know me, you will like me. It just comes off as a little bit cold at first, but eventually I can warm up to anybody if I want to.
(Eleven8’s Thoughts: There is nothing worse than a “OMG, All girls are hating on me” type of chick. Look, sometimes you have to come to the conclusion that it’s not them and it’s you. Maybe it’s not hate and it’s reality. Maybe people see you for the person you really are. Maybe it’s your act that you need to get together.)
There’s been talks about the child endangerment arrest and your son, will we be able to meet your son on the show?
You will definitely see me doing my family thing, my mom thing and my work thing. Anything that is me is going to be on there. Of course, my son is an important part of my life, so I wouldn’t do anything that didn’t involve him. I didn’t leave anything uncovered.
(Eleven8’s Thoughts: When you say doing your mom thing and work thing do you really mean we’ll get to see you leave your child alone in a feces infested apartment again while you go pop it for some pimps out of town? If so, I’ll pass.)
What is some of your beauty must-haves?
I am pretty basic. I don’t like to wear a lot of makeup, but I do like to wear bronzer. If my bronzer is out, I have to run and go get another one. I am also an eyelash girl! I don’t get the strips; I like the individual lashes. That’s something that I can’t live without. Some eyelashes, bronzer and lipgloss goes a long way with me.
(Eleven8’s Thoughts: Wait, Huh? I stopped reading when she said she was pretty basic. My bad.)
