Basketball Wives: LA: I’m Done.

Shilo Adams October 3, 2011 95

What happens when a bunch of judgmental middle-aged velociraptors stop being polite and start picking apart a pretty young woman who dares cross their path?

Basketball Wives: LA.

Tonight’s Basketball Wives: LA was the straw that broke this camel’s back and I have to say that I’m officially tired of the BS. Tired of the hypocrisy, tired of the mob mentality, tired of the abusive attacks on someone that didn’t do a damn thing to draw the ire of the circle. It’s a bunch of sub-high school hijinx from women who should know better and who claim to be above drama but reveal in it like a pig in fresh mud and watching somebody continually take the brunt of the circle’s frustrations with their own situations has gotten old.

For six episodes, we’ve seen Draya Michele (Howard) be prejudged, name called, and raked over the coals in order to be “accepted” by a group of women who obviously aren’t going to be planning her birthday party anytime soon. It’s been a frustrating watch and a sad watch, the reality TV equivalent of a kicked puppy continually returning to its master in order to be kicked yet again. You want to reach through the TV, give her a hug, and offer to take her out for a burger and some shopping, but she seems doomed to ghetto Groundhog’s Day for at least the rest of this season.

What kills me is the fact that these people continually harp on Draya’s past and they all have problems of their own. Laura goes on about how her four kids mean so much to her, but she keeps getting back with a man who threw them out on the street and into a cramped two-bedroom apartment. A man with a criminal record of his own, no less, and she deems that normal and just a part of “black love”. (Let’s not forget the whole Shaq incident and the fact that her man doesn’t even want her on this show to begin with.) Gloria continually waves her relationship with Matt in front of the camera like a prized piece of steak in front of a cat, but again, Matt has been arrested for domestic violence, which ultimately led to the cancellation of their wedding last year. Jackie Christie seems to think that she’s the hood Mother Theresa, saintly as ever and doing such good in the world through her children and her relationship. Nevermind the fact that her daughter has been exposing her for the fraud that she is on her blog. Imani started this whole thing with her “worthless” comment, but it looks like she may need to look in a mirror after her past actions while she was with her ex.

(For those curious, Malaysia doesn’t seem to have much dirt on her, but she was the one most willing to believe that Draya was innocent.)

How are these women going to throw stones when their houses are made of sugar glass?

I understand being taken aback by finding out that someone you’re spending time with has a police report against them and all, but a real woman (scratch that, a real human being) would have the maturity to go straight to the person for confirmation of its authenticity. They wouldn’t teehee and fantasize about beatin’ somebody down because, honestly, what middle-aged woman in her right mind is out there scrappin’ like she’s still a teenager? They wouldn’t cheers and clink glasses over getting dirt against someone that may or may not even be true because these women have been looking for reasons to nail Draya to the wall since day one, minute one, word one. They wouldn’t continually conspire ways to ambush and gang up on someone; these women, though, are all about the bullying, even though they’re supposed to be busy with all their children, charities, and various timesucks that are only theirs because of who they may have been in a relationship with at one point.

No wonder this woman has put walls up; if a group of catty, gossipy women kept going after me, always assumed the worst of me, and wouldn’t believe a word I say, I damn sure wouldn’t open myself up or leave myself vulnerable. Lord knows what this group of busybodies would do if Draya really did open herself up.

Wasn’t it just last episode where Jackie made a point to tell Draya not to believe a word anybody says and “dial up my number”? Shouldn’t she treat Draya with the same respect and, if something comes up, go to her first instead of turning this into an episode of Dynasty?

I have no way of knowing whether Draya is innocent or not, but from the moment the circle heard that she used to strip, the circle was licking its chops, just waiting to find something to use to cast her out. Even if she was guilty, just because somebody has a past doesn’t make them a bad person and just because somebody has a past doesn’t make them irredeemable. This kind of overly simplistic black-and-white thinking frustrates me to death because it turns people into witch hunters at the drop of a dime and you know this group of women wasn’t going to stop until they got Draya to admit everything or until they metaphorically “drowned her”.

As much as I love a good bit of trashy reality television, I just can’t with Basketball Wives: LA anymore. At least not right now. If this had the social dynamics of older episodes of Basketball Wives: Shaunie’s Busted Angels, I would be able to tolerate to ludicrous claims and continuous attacks, because there’d be a relatively fair number of people on each side of the aisle and it wouldn’t feel like episode after episode of ambushing someone very defenseless. Alas, this is a bunch of bored, paranoid, insecure housewives trying to seek out some misguided revenge against the young women who have approached their husbands, boyfriends, and significant others during their respective playing time.

Maybe Kimsha and Tanya were right all along.

  • Shanon

    I'm getting tired of the Draya bashing also! These women are just jealous of Draya and very insecure. I just wish Draya could take a stand for herself and tell all of them to kiss her a**!!

    • SP Johnson

      I agree with you all, Basketball Wives LA officially sucks!!!!!!!! Draya doesn't owe anyone an explanation about her life. Let each Wife, Ex-Girlfriend, Girlfriend etc… without sin cast the first stone. Draya needs to get as far away as possible from these overweight, judgemental people, (People was used for a lack of not using a disrespectful word). God has forgiven each one of these Females for all of their sins 1,000 times 60 and more. Thus, whatever Draya has or has not done should not be up for discussion. The only one I see with class is Malaysia.

    • njeri

      The show need to be cancelled, soon, like now. If not, I hope Draya would get off the show, before she get post traumatic stress disorder.

      • Theresa Hates BBL Wi

        Agree. I wrote to Bravo and insisted to remove this show. Jackie is psycho!

    • mayamom

      To me it almost seems like Gloria (I hope that is the right name) brought Draya into their "circle" just so they could have someone to hate on. It is so obvious that Draya is not the type of person that these women would hang out with on a normal basis. She seems more like your everyday chick. Like I would hang with her because she doesn't seem stuck up and hanging on some athlete catching the change that drops from his pockets. The women on this show are really pathetic. Jackie invited the girl to her wedding. Why I do not know. But when the girl didn't show she talking 'bout "is she drunk somewhere with 5 guys…?" BOOOOO!! Jackie. If she thinks that lowly of Draya then why invite her in the first DAMN place? I thought Jackie was better than that. Malaysia seems cool though. And Ron Artest wife. The rest of those chicks are some PURE HATERS. Once again making REAL BLACK WOMEN look bad.

      • Cgirl

        I AGREE WITH THAT, THEY HATE ON HER CUZ ALL OF THEM DON'T WANT THEIR FLAWS TO COME OUT.

        IMANI: CAN'T GET A MAN

        GLORIA: HERE HUSBAND DON'T WANT TO MARRY HER( WE SEE WHY)

        LAURA: IS JUST KNOWN AS GLORIA'S SIS

        JACKIE: IS JUST UH DO SOMETHING ELSE WITH YOURSELF

      • Rennee42

        They make black women look so bad. There is so much stuff on every last one of these women, that you just go on and on. But if we wanted to do anything we have to target the advertising. I will not watch nonsense!!!

    • Cgirl

      I feel as if Draya ain’t got nuttin to prove to any of these women. All of them have their problems like one can get a man, the other ones man don’t know if he want to marry her. So they cannot be judging her off of stuff on the web, cuz all of them need a reality check, the world doesn’t revolve around them. All they are like its titled “BAKETBALL WIVEZ LA” Living their lives off their men. So all this bashing on DRAYA is just a cover up of their flaws. Really she need to stick with her friends and stop trying to fit in with these has been WIVEZ.

    • Get for real

      I agree 100% this show is truly the worste I have ever seen. We all make mistakes but for all these women with the exception of Malaysia need to get a life. They are hater and unattractive by their personality alone. Laura geta life you had a relationship with Shaq get over yourself . Who in their right mind woud ever married any of this women. Gloria you are so ulgy inside and out! Draya you have made mistakes in your life learn from them and move on. Be the best person you can, trust in God and he will see you through it.

    • nadia

      i agree with u these women r so jealos and the pic is begining to seem real petty draya please get away from these stupid middle aged jealous women

    • tretre

      I agree Shanon Draya does need to stand up for herself, also maybe Draya needs to bring one of her friends with her so they can meet these selfish women. that way when they get ready to jump on Draya about her life she can have a back bone.

    • Latoshia

      I totally agree….I think they are jealous of her. Draya is doing her thang!!! Me, personally, wouldn't have anything to do with them from the way they behaved in the beginning. I've never been a fan of bullying and I don't hate on sistas that are pulling their hustle.

  • Toya

    I hate it also, they are really mad and insecure because ahe is young and beautiful and eye candy for they men, and they can't take it. These are pitiful basketball wives.

    • Sandee

      I cannot believe that these old hags cornered this young woman like that. The have their own skeletons to deal with – Jackie, with that coach and her daughter is hilarious and stupid. Imani is off in another world, Laura and Gloria – I would rather not say. These two should not talk about anyone else. Thank goodness that Malaysia took Dray's hand in the end and supported her. A bunch of foolish women that make the Miami bunch seem like peaches.

  • Sharon

    THEY ALL NEED OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

  • Tonya

    I am so tired of them bullying Draya. I don't even want to see a reunion show. They must not know how jealous, old and petty they look. I didn't even watch the whole show………predictable and boring!

    • Priscilla B.

      YES I SOO AGREE WITH YOU… THEY ARE JUST REALLY JEALOUS YOU CAN SEE IT ON EACH ONE OF THEIR FACES…DRAYA HAS HANDLED HERSELF IN A VERY LADY LIKE MANNER I WILL NEVER WATCH IT EVER EVER AGAIN

  • Layla

    Amen! Queen Bee Jackie and her Evil Posse come off like a bunch of over-the-hill mean girls ganging up on a youngster they should be mentoring. Psychologists could have a field day watching all the evil dynamics play out through these women who are old enough to know better. Don't want drama? Stop spending all your time talking about it! I was suspect from the very beginning as they picked apart Tanya–for having the nerve to be positive. Let's just ignore that on another level it's the light-skinned girls slapping down the dark-skinned sister.

  • Sharon

    TITUS 2:3-5 3.The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4. That they may the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children

  • Sharon

    Oops typo.. Titius2:4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children

  • SARAH

    • Priscilla B.

      YES YES YES I SOOO AGREE WITH YOU WE ALL NEED TO TO LEAVE COMMENTS ON VH1 AND LETS GET THEM ITCHES CANCELLED!!!!!!

      • SouthernEssence

        Yes..THAT'S WHAT'S UP! I HATE THIS SHOWWWW!!!!

    • Mz Jazi

      Here is my thing, all the basketball wives ad to do something to get where they are now. All but drea act like they just too good and better than somebody, I think that they all are jelouse of drea and threatened because shes beautiful and got her own ting going on, she dont even need to do that show. I think Gloria is fake for inviteing drea and than turning on her and talking about her. That is why the basketball wives with shaun,jin,and evelyn stop likeing gloria. Drea is the coolest one on the show.

  • linden

    THESE WOMEN ARE TO OLD AND THEY SHOULD LEAVE DRAYA ALONE.

    • Theresa Hates BBL Wi

      Yep,leave her alone! She's hot and their fat pigs!

  • Chris

    BB Wives LA has gone too far with the Draya bashing andtheir holier than thou attitudes. Those women are making themselves look bad and petty.

    • tretre

      These women are trolls because they have nothing better to do with there life's, But pick and toy around with Draya. They are mad a the wrong person they need to be mad at the men that F- them over in their life.

  • Linda

    Oh my GOD this show just made me throw up in my mouth. Thesesold ass hags need help.

  • Kira

    Firstly these women would not want someone digging through their past, so I don't think it's right for them to be digging through hers. Secondly, it's not THEIR place to gang up on this girl and attack her they way that they're doing. They invite the girl to dinner and have her walking blindly into a lion's den. If this is all these women have to do with their time, I pity them. All of them. Their husbands and significant others should be hanging their heads in shame seeing their wives act like this.

  • Taquinda

    I'm done with this show it's so sad how women can sit back and talk about this women like that all i can say is all u have to answer to is GOD Draya!!!!!!!!!

  • tina

    The bbw of la sucks with the exception of draya n malaysia. I wish i could get in the tv n check them broads for draya.

  • Kenyaddah

    Money can buy u alot but it dam sho can buy Sense for these Women!..They ought to be shamed of themselves gangin up on Draya like that! I dont even remember Draya askin to be a part of their circle. I just thought she was being introduced as an associate of Laura's from the gym!!. For one,,Malaysia the only one of'em that look descent,,the rest of'em just some LUCKY HOES!! Draya might've been a Stripper but them Lucky Hoes need to take lessons from her/……Somebody need to STRIP them Lucky Hoes from all that hair and makeup and POST THAT ON THE WEB!!!!…Natural is BEAUTY,,,,Draya is Natural Beauty and them LUCKY HOES JUST MAD!!!!

  • Kenyaddah

    OOOPS I meant cant buy sense!!!

  • shelbie

    As a native of Los Angeles …. I cam say this show is an embarrassment …. I can barely watch …. I respect the young model.type ….the rest need to watch their.manners …. I LOVED HOW SHE DIDN'T GO TO THE "WEDDING" ….. SMH !!! loved that though

  • Isabel

    Oops meant you

  • Toletha

    I could hardly believe what I was seeing and hearing on BWLA. Excluding Malaysia, Draya was basically blindsided by a mob, and it was so junior high, underhanded, dirty, and petty. Since when is it a requirement for one to divulge and explain the details of their life in order to hang out in "the circle?" If that's a requirement, not too many people will be hanging out together. And last time I checked, God is the only Judge and the only perfect One! So ladies of L.A., don't act like your stuff don't stink! You are NOT saints!!! We all got skeletons in our closet. If you had been genuinely concerned about Draya's son (and it's obvious you weren't but just looking for someone to bully), a better approach would have been to have ONE of the ladies speak to Draya PRIVATELY, share the concern, and offer some assistance in helping her to sort things out. Unfortunately, nothing like that happened. Draya, who doesn't owe any of you an explanation, showed a lot of class by containing herself. She said that the reports are false, and that should be the end of it whether you believe it or not. You need to leave it alone. It never should have started anyway because it wasn't any of your business to begin with. You went searching for some dirt to throw at her, and that's sad. Did all of you divulge your downfalls and explain them to Draya? Of course not! Kudos to you Malayasia. You are the only one who really got it.

    • blest

      If that’s a requirement, not too many people will be hanging out together. LMAO truer words were never spoken

  • bacc2me

    Really!! These women are really, really MEAN!!! Out of all the "Basketball Wives" who is actually a wife???? I'm sure the only husband feels totally disrespected!!! Draya don't let your past be a chain!! These other women have issues too!!! Lord have mercy!!!

  • Brittney

    I agree with everyone else on this site. This show is ridiculous!!!! I have never seen so many older "mature"/"real" women act this way towards a individual. Draya honey if I were you I would never encounter with these horrible women ever again. The rest of you except for Malaysia need to get a handle of your own lives and leave the poor girl alone. NEWS FLASH none of you are GOD and how dare you judge someone like this. Who are you guys to expect an explanation? I am shocked especially the way you all are depicting black women. DISGUSTING is all I can say. I will no longer be watching any of the episodes if this doesn't change.

  • Brittney

    We all should write VH1 get these disgusting women off air…keep Draya and Malaysia and find other women. I am really mad I just finished watching this episode and I have no desire to watch the next one just GROSS

    • njeri

  • dea

    totally agree with you

    draya should get just stay away from the vultures and malaysia might want to get away to before they rub off on her

  • nae

    Jackie you are OLD, huge gut, huge nasty neck, small manly eyes, no lips, only your bottom teeth show when you talk, nasty head of very little hair, you have no style or dressing skills, dumb, your love for your mom was fake ( why were you so quick to go on with your wedding and so much mess with draya when you have a family member who is suffering and who is supposed to be so dear to you. I know you are not grieving or even thinking about your mother. You seem be satified that she is dead. ) Your weak sorry man was crying at the wedding because he is about to redo his regrettful vows with a creepy old thick neck worthless nightmare of a controlling manipulative hewoman. You are not romantic or even someone this man wants to be with. ( Oh by the way, I think you are a secret LESBIAN and you want draya to be your lady) You fear that your man wants her too. You wish you could be draya. Jackie You need mental help. You have a MENTAL DISORDER undiagnosed. JACKIE YOU TRY TO DRESS YOUNG AND TRY TO WEAR YOUR HAIR YOUNG AND YOUNG EARRINGS AND IT ALL LOOKS WRONG ON YOU. YOUR FRIENDS CONTINUE TO SET YOU WITH FALSE ILLUSIONS ABOUT YOUR LOOKS AND YOU ARE DELUSIONAL ABOUT YOUR WHOLE LIFE AND MARRIAGE. YOU ARE JUST OVERALL MESSED UP AND HEDIOUS TO LOOK AT. Laura is a man. She looks like a fat drag. Gloria looks like a nasty mole that lives under the ground near a sess pool. Imani weave needs serious attention. Imani did you abandon your 1st born for a man? You are jealous of Draya young looks and success. Laura I rejoiced when Maylasia put her fist to your lip. Now you want to be her friend now. If you cant be beatem joinem. JACKIE YOU LOOK LIKE AN OLD GRANDMOTHER ARMODILLA AND GLORIA AND LAURA LOOK LIKE POSSUMS. IMANI LOOK LIKE POOH BEAR TO ME.

  • Sandee

    This is the highest form of bullying I have ever seen. Who made these women judge and jury? We all have our own issues and so do they but chose to ignore it and bully that young woman. Drays should leave them alone. It was pathetic of these women to do this – it stinks.

  • Kay Kay

    @ TY Lee Girl you went in!!!!!! Too funny and true LMAO

  • nae

    Draya i hope you land a big acting career. I wish you the best. Dont let these bitter witches bring you down. Keep your head up. They have no reason to attack you like they do. They all have dirt on them too. Gloria brought you on the show so they have someone to hate on. She want to destroy you and your chance for an acting career. She wants an acting career- but you being more attractive and more talented is a threat to her. Draya, they are intimaded by you. Stay far away from the old hags. Jackie, laura, gloria, and imani are poisoned with their own hate, jealousy and past they will always try to project their ugly onto you. Keep your guard up and stay your distant from these dragons.

  • J'dor

    You said it BEST!!!! # Where's the "LIKE" button??

  • trenicee

    Team Draya!! We have all done something in our lives and that's ok… It's not falling down that makes us weak and pathetic, It's not getting up. We are not perfect ourselves… It is never ok to bully someone. Leave Draya alone and go seek counselling for your own insecurity issues. He without sin cast the first stone!?!

  • Ellen1

    A bunch of miserable poisonous oxygen thieves! scripted or not–I can't believe these grown women -all of them mothers-no less would sell out and engage in this evil garbage. I mean that Imani chick looks like she straight up channelling the devil. This stuff is entertainment if you're in the mood to watch a horror show. VH1 should get some basketball wives LA Halloween masks made in the likeness of those sinister witches.. LOL

  • http://aol T J.

    1 JACKIE out of all the women i was most surprise by you. what are you thinking.INSECURE and jealous…

    2.Laura I feel sooo sorry for you. I will keep you in my prayers..

    4 Draya I felt so bad for you.Don't let them get you down. praying for u!!

    5..Gloria I hope everything works out the way you want it 2 be a little kinder..

    6.Imani what can i say..

  • Pro-Draya

    LOL! These women are PATHETIC! So high school!! I cannot stand Gloria and Laura. Laura is always calling someone a “jump-off.” They’re ALL jump-offs!!! They were jealous of Draya from the first time they saw her. She had already explained to old-witch Jackie why she didn’t go to her stupid wedding — why did she need to explain it to the group, too?! Draya is pretty and seems to be doing well. The rest of them are a hot mess. No wonder Tanya and Kimsha decided not to continue with bunch of weak losers. They are stupid as hell. And I love how Laura can’t speak or get a phrase right to save her life. Does she even know the English language. Hood. Rat. All. Day. Long. Draya, do you and tell these petty ass wannabees to kick rocks!

  • TEAM DRAYA AND MALAY

    All of these women except for Draya and Malaysia should be ashamed of themselves, I am appalled at this episode and this cast!!! WHO GIVES ANYONE THE RIGHT TO PASS JUDGEMENT ON ANYBODY BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY PULL UP OFF THE INTERNET!!! I guess I can get a group of my friends and confront Jackie on how she is a dead beat mom who threw her first born and PRECIOUS GRANDBABIES out onto the street, you know where I read that…ON THE INTERNET YOUR OWN DAUGHTER’S WORDS! I also read ON THE INTERNET that Jackie allowed her husband to almost die while choking in a resturaunt all because a male doctor wasn’t around!!!!! Now maybe that isn’t true but the same way jackie won’t give draya a chance jackie doesn't deserve one either!!! LET’s KEEP GOING SHALL WE!!! I guess a group of my friends and I can go confront Laura on the allegations of her screwing Shaq while he was married to her friend shaunie (but draya is the jump off right). There are emails to prove it!!! But no those emails were fabricated right but a police report can’t be fabricated?????? Guess where I read this…ON THE INTERNET!!! And I'm not even going to mention the 4 babies from a man who even wife you up…. LET’S KEEP GOING!!!!! How about a group of my friends and I go and confront little miss perfect gloria about how her husband (excuse me fiance who won’t marry her) went upside her head in front of those “precious twin boys faces”….LET’S PULL UP THAT POLICE REPORT!!! Where did I read you ask…ON THE INTERNET!!! (Gloria should know better because doesn't this give you deja vu of how she was ambushed while at lunch with suzie by the rat pack of BBALL Wives Miami because of WHAT THEY READ ON THE INTERNET) LET’S KEEP GOING!!! LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST MS PIGGY IMANI!!! How about a group of my friends get together and confront her about how she is a DEADBEAT MOM AND A LIAR!!!! Who lies about their age, how many kids they have and leaves their child in someone elses’s care in order to follow behind a NBA player who ended up NOT EVEN MARRYING HER BUTT!!! Where did I see this??? Let’s all say it together folks….ON THE INTERNET!!!!! True friendship, and classiness was only shown and exemplified by Malaysia who took draya by the hand and comforted her. Jackie you in no way shape or form wanted to help draya or extend a helping hand as you claim. I’m sorry your comment and I quote, “She needs an a** whooping,” does NOT specify someone who wants to help anybody out. Draya keep ya head up honey, these tricks (except malayasia) are making this show all about you, you are gonna be the break out star…your husband is coming. I hope VH1 canacels this show if Draya doesn't come back and I don't blame her if she doesn't. BBALL Wives LA is nothing without DRAYA she is the star and the girls made her that way. If Draya does return for a season 2 she better negotiate a pay raise like Evil-lyn did cause unlike Evil-lyn draya deserves it! Or better yet VH1 just needs to give Draya and Mayalasia (since mayalasia got naked in a luda video) a spin off show called "From Video Vixen TO Basketball Wife" and the slogan can be "If can happen to us it can happen to you"~LOLOLOLOLOL

    -Ye Who Has NOT SINNED Cast The First Stone

    • http://Southernman Shaun

      Your post literally had me in tears laughing…. Team Draya here too… I hope her and Malaysia get their own show.

  • Lola

    Here we go again!! What's up with middle age women lately?? Are you all that miserable or jealous that you must bully and disrespect other women to feel good about yourself?

    I'm going to break it down like this: Laura, pick on someone your own size. Girl, you are bitter; please don't turn into a Tammy. God don't like ugly… Jackie, I believe you are the oldest of the group, why don't you be a leader and stop being an instigator. Gloria, does your sister ever do No wrong. Pleaassseee, stop being a phony and tell her to "Grow Up"! I believe she is a single mom to not 1 but 4 kids….

    I'm a latina from Chi Town. I do not have the time or even care who has my name in their mouth. When someone is working my nerves; I do what every right minded human being does… Confront the source and talk it out. Ladies, stop acting ghetto you are making us look Bad!

  • sheshe

    This show is a joke. It does not depict real LA women – period. Who do they think they are anyway? Gloria is nobody – she's just living (shacking up) with a basketball player, got his kids (payday), that's all she's about. Gloria's sister – who cares about her? The other women are too old and should be on Golden Girls. In the meantime – we all need to stop wasting our time watching this show. Let the original show be all the Basketball wives we need.

    Draya is the best one in spite of her bad judgement with leaving son home alone. On one had, she did have to earn a living and at that young age, well what else could she do? Why did her mom stop watching her own grandson so her daughter could earn a living (whatever the job)?

    And these women are not even attractive. A couple of them are but Laura is not, neither is Jackie. Malaysia is cute. Gloria is not in spite of all her makeup and phoney voice/speech.

    VH1, I'm sure you have another stupid reality show to replace this one… now would be the time to air it.

    And when will the reality shows stop and the networks get back to real programming which the only thing real about reality shows is the use of the word real(ity).

  • MissMaam

    Well daaaam, this is the 1st time ever that

    LAURA YOU ARE SWOLLEN AMAZON WALKING ON TWO LEGS. YOU LOOK LIKE YOU HAVE BEEN EATING ON STEROIDS & SOMEHOW INCREASING FAT INSTEAD OF REAL MUSLE. LEAVE DRAYA ALONE!!!!!!!!!

    GLORIA YOU SNEAKY RAT…ARE YOU SCARED THAT YOUR MAN WANTS DRAYA?

    JACKIE YOU ARE OLD AND WORN DOWN. STOP TREATING OTHER PEOPLE BAD INCLUDING YOUR DAUGHTER, GRANDCHILDREN, HUSBAND AND FINALLY DRAYA. THIS GIRL (DRAYA) HAS NOT COME ON THE SHOW ATTACKING YOU OR YOUR UGLY GROUP OF GIRLS (IMANI, LAURA, GLORIA). SHE DOES NOT OWE ANYTHING TO THIS GROUP OF HYPOCRITES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JACKIE WITH ALL YOUR FAMILY PROBLEMS AND MENTAL ISSUES YOU NEED TO STAY HOME AND WORK ON THOSE. STOP PARTYING, STOP SHOPPING AND STOP LOOKING DOWN YOUR NOSE AT OTHERS.

    MALAYSIA WATCH YOUR BACK AND STAY CLASSY. GIRL YOU SCARED THEM WHEN YOUR FIST MET THAT AMAZON'S LIP. HOPEFULLY,THEY WILL REMEMBER THAT AND THEY WILL NOT MESS WITH YOU.

    TONYA STAY CLASSY. JACKIE CAN'T HANDLE YOUR INTELLECT. SHE ONLY UNDERSTAND CONFUSION AND HOSTILITY.

    What the hell is wrong with those old chicks

  • Julie

    I can't stand anyone on the show except for Draya. I can't stand Jackie. She thinks she is the mother hen of the show and everyone should bow down to her. I'm like (Who the fu– are you?) I can't stand Gloria. She's always trying to start some mess about somebody else. I dont' like her or her stupid husband. I hate their relationship. Laura is annoying. Imani is just above herself. They are all UGLY and FAT, except for Draya… and Malaysia… they look good. I miss Tonya and Kimsha. They gave the show some balance. Everyone left on the show are jealous bulleys, who live their lives to pick on Draya. They are stupid.

  • truth777

    This show is horrible. I mean horrible. I agree should most definitely be canceled. Jackie Imani Gloria Laura all of you are lame as hell. Draya is the show. Let's face it she's a threat to these old Tired ass women. It's like every moment of their lives is set on how to destroy draya and for what?!? Phuck shaunie. BET please please please cancel this show.

  • Stormey

    I'm tired of the author using the thesaurus to appear intelligent. Just speak in regular terms. The english language is colorful as it is, without a dictionary. We are speaking of BBW-LA… HOODRATS…not the theory of relativity or Shakespeare…lol

  • Riann

    To Shilo Adams, YOU PUT IT DOWN !!!!!! Well said .

  • Rennee42

    Oh boy, I have so much homework to do. But I really did enjoy reading everyone's post. WOW, we all hate the same people. TEAM DRAYA ALL THE WAY!!

    Well I am definitely not for bashing Draya. Personally I like her for the most part. Its that stank ass Imani I can't stand. Anyway unfortunately I cannot be in Draya's corner on this one. Although the reporter did produce a fake police report (wrong docket number) I did find a real police report on Draya. If you would like to look it up you can go to the Berks County Court of common Pleas Court Summary and look under docket number CP-06-0000623-2011. Sorry Draya there is proof you are a deadbeat mother. I wish I had been wrong because I was so ready to blast that reporter but its true.

    • tretre

      I don't care what the police report says about Draya that still does not give these hoes the right to treat Draya like they do. They is not the ones that have to deal with what she did she does. ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE DRAYA Nobody knows what was going on in Drays life to know why she did what she did because they are so busy knocking her down about every little thing and not listening.

  • http://www.google.com Hasani

    Oh and I like BBW Miami a whole lot better. Gloria thinks she's hot ish on the LA show when she knows good and well she was bullied outta Miami. Can't stand Gloria either. Laura I like she seems a little more down to earth. Jackie Im cool with and I like Malaysia. I can understand why Imani's man never married her after 9 yrs if that is how she acts I would have left her behind too!!!

  • Nomy

    You said it right! They need to leave Draya alone. They are just straight hating on her.

  • nikki

  • Marlow Rae

    Those Old Used Up Goats (Laura, Gloria, Jackie and Imani), are jealous of Draya and Malaysia. What is frightening is that those old Goats have kids.

  • belle

    It's obvious that those hood rats are jealous of Draya and Malaysia cuz they are the prettiest of the bunch! IMANI'S husband, LOL and she is a disgruntle hag that needs a man, she is sooo miserable. GLORIA, her babies daddy, a real hoodlum that will never marry her, why buy the cow when you can get the milk FREE! LOL! Jackie, poor thing, I really feel bad for her mom, but, she is so vendictive, so sad!!! And, Laura, so desparate that she would sleep with anybodys man! She is a true hood rat and she really looks like a MAN!!! You are ALL jealous of the 2 most beautiful girls in the bunch and it is just too sad…I too am done with this GHETTO show!!!! Bring on Shaunie and her girls, Miami, beauty!!! LA…LOL…LOL…LOL…!!!

  • sandra

    all these women except Draya and Malaysia are all a bunch of disgrace to womanhood, They are all worthless and Imani and Laura makes me wanna puke.
    I have something to say to each of them.
    IMANI- you are Worthless, lets dig into ur past,did u see the drops of wine on your yellow dress in the last episode, OMG,U disgust me, its only in your dreams that a man will want to settle down with u.
    Laura- You disgust me, you re pathetic,You are so stupid.
    Gloria- that guy will only marry u in your dreams, you are the most insecure person on the show and u look like a goat.Please go back to school and get a life
    Jackie-First of all, if u were my mother, I would have committed suicide a long time ago, u re that annoying.You know why u wed every year, cos there is nothing for you to do, first go and loose some weight, and then learn to speak English before u go to talk to Draya.

  • Aulora

    This show is a disgusting mess. I am thankful I have never in my life come across such a pack of wild hyeenas. Those women are horrible. For them to call out Draya they way they have been doing is just wrong on every human level. The hypocrisy amazes me. That one chick that told Draya that she doesn't even think about her, she's not even a factor. But wait, uh didn't you make a play date with what's her name to look her up on the internet and pull up what you felt was a real police report? Then grab your other hyeena friends and have a pow wow? THEN plan a meeting to ambush her? YEAH, but you don't think about her. OK. Fool. You all make me sick. Nixing your show and waiting fo the Draya show. You all are very pathetic women. Go back to your dens.

  • LA Wives Suck

    How about a boycott of the show until all are replaced but Draya and Malaysia!

  • Latoshia

    I like Draya because she seems to have a good head on her shoulders even though she is young. Her past is just that…the past. Everyone makes mistakes and hopefully learn from them and do better……Draya you will be better off with new friends……. i think you're the only one I've seen actually work!!!lmao….
    Jackie……OMG! I think that she is a big ass bully. She portrays herself to be this well put together woman. It's a front!!!! I saw it a mile out from the beginning. I noticed how she has been a big instigator the past couple of shows. If she wants to confront Laura about something she said, she should do it alone. She doesn't need to get her clicks to join in…..I think she is scared of Laura…..
    Imani….I think is definitely a follower. she is a nice woman but she needs to start speaking her own mind and not letting others sway her thoughts and actions……

  • Latoshia

    Gloria……I knew that Cosby Show get up was just that….Everyone/Every relationship has issues. The fact that she hasn't married that million dollar man told me alot. She's trying to keep him…do what the rest do..marry him Boo!!!!!! I don't think he wanted to marry her. After baby number 1, she have known that..__Now, Laura….That goon is something else. That's nothing but a dressed up hood rat…Yeah Malaysia had it right!!!!!! She needs to get her ass up and get a damn job to take care of those kids…First stop having them…I think 4 is enough and your're single. It's hard enough being single with one but damn….4?? Find a decent man at church…which means she has to start going. GET IT TOGETHER MISSY….You only gotta few good years left…__Malaysia..i like the jewlery line but not for kids..my son would lose his eyes if they were not already in his face…lmbo…i think that you are a cool woman. Stay neutral…don't get caught up in all that mess…__BOTTOM LINE: THEY ALL NEED TO GET A DAMN JOB TO OCCUPY THEIR TIME…IDLE HANDS ARE THE DEVIL'S WORKSHOP!!!!Didn't your granny tell ya'll that??????

    After having watched the original Basketball Wives-what a huge let down. Shaunie, I admire your sense of what we the public are entertained by. Your first show is right on target. Your choice of cast members is admirable as well. Very classy & tasteful. Of course there will be some scuffles-we expect it & enjoy a certain amount of it to a point. But this new show…….omgosh. These ladies & I say that very loosely, are mothing more than over grown high school girls bullying someone they have targeted. This is not entertaining whatsoever. There are no high point to any of it. Please discontinue this whole show. Come up with another version but this time thoroughly critique the girls before committing them to the series. They need to uphold the standards you have set in the first show. You can do it girl!

  • Ann

    *nothing more (sorry 4 typo)

  • Shaunacee

    Wheres the original basketball wives!?!?! Then why gloria always trying to act like she dnt know whats going on….. I dont even watch every show cause the only two I like is draya and malasia….
