Draya Michele Condemns ‘Basketball Wives’ / Criticises Its Treatment Of Black Women

Published: Wednesday 16th Oct 2019 by David

Draya Michele believes black audiences have been brainwashed by the world of Reality TV and has apologised for the part she played in it during her time on ‘Basketball Wives LA.’

Full story below…

Michele starred in the hit TV show ‘Basketball Wives LA’ (a spinoff of the often-panned Basketball Wives Miami) and joined Brandi Maxielle, Malaysia Pargo and Jackie Christie to push the show to ratings gold before it was colonised by Miami’s leading ladies in 2015.

Today, Draya looks back at her time on the series and reveals that she is still haunted by her time on the show.

Why? The part it played in convincing black TV lovers that violence and dysfunction are a necessary part of TV shows fronted by African-Americans.

    She’s only saying this because she was kicked off and now it’s her opportunity to help end the series while they are getting so much backlash.

      DrayA quit. She was not fired. She refused to be demoted once the cancelled women from cancelled BW Miami joined the cast of Bw LA and took over

    Draya did that show the right way, exit on a high note – like Angel Brinks (and kinda like Tami Roman) and come up with a branding plan that will outlive your mark on the show.

      Lies. Brandi tried to twist Draya’s words to mean something different than what she said but Tami corrected Brandi on it.
