Orlando Scandrick Wants To Pay Draya To Leave Basketball Wives

Draya's boyfriend, Dallas Cowboy star Orlando Scandrick is willing to make Draya an offer she can't refuse -- or can she? The 29 year old Basketball Wives LA star recently appeared on Power 106's Big Boy's Neighborhood where she discussed the third season of the reality show and how Orlando feels about it. "You know what? I think it’s been really hard on my boyfriend," Draya said. "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 ass on the couch."

Considering that all of the episodes so far are about Orlando messing with Jackie Christie's daughter, I could see where he would come to this conclusion. But here's the thing, if it weren't for Basketball Wives LA, would Orlando know who Draya was? 

This can go either very well or very badly for Draya. Let's look at both sides of the coin. Let's say Draya takes Orlando's offer and quits the show. Let us not forget that prior to Basketball Wives Draya was a stripper in Philly and that's basically all she had. Basketball Wives LA has afforded Draya a LOT of opportunities and like the "wives" of the past, she could easily fade into obscurity without it. We don't know if she's been putting money away and let's face it, she has mouths to feed. If God forbid her and Orlando break up, then what? What if Orlando gets injured and can't play football or gets dropped from the Cowboys? Her swimwear isn't moving units and I don't see anyone wearing Fly.Ass.Girls. She can only host parties for so long until some new, younger and prettier "it" girl comes and takes her spot. Is it worth it?

The other scenario is that she does not accept Orlando's offer and continues to do the show. She will only be as relevant as the show is, which means that her livelihood is highly dependent on how well the show continues to do. We all know, these reality shows don't last forever and neither do the checks. Is it worth possibly losing the man you love, the man that could marry you and give you forever, for something that is only good right now? Will she eventually get tired of the catty bickering and want to move on and do something better with her life? 

So what did Draya decide? Aside from the fact that Draya signed a 5 year contract with Basketball Wives LA, she decided that she's going to stick around for a while. “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.”

What do you think of Draya's decision? Do you see the Draya Show happening?  Ladies, would you drop your career over a man?

From what I’ve observed no man really likes their girlfriend or wife on reality tv because of the drama it brings. Unless your Stevie Jay, Scrappy, Malaysia’s husband and Jackie’s wife Doug. If Orlando wants to put this restriction on Draya, he one needs to step it up on his craft to increase his value (more money) and two put a ring on her figure.


Draya knows not to exit just yet. She know she has to transition into something else that’s bigger and better to expand her brand. I had an  idea that’s why she started her Draya mini episodes on youtube.  I think she will find away to have it all. She’s now becoming a photographer. She can still be in the field she loves but behind the scenes. Which will make her more “wife” material..

I'm sure she likes having her own money and have the option to not depend on a man.

Wait SMS, weren't you the one saying that women wanting a man with money (in this case being taken care of) were hoes? 


Not saying i don't agree with you. I just noticed your stance tends to change. I guess, as long as it isn't child support lol

lol@ 11


IDK.   I'm always afraid to put all of my eggs in the "Imma take care of you" basket.....especially if I have to quit my job to do it.  It seems like it would be harder to lie about not having any money if I'm not making any money   and karma's a b***h so I may have to pass ...... lmao

She needs to stay on the show and at the same time promote her brand. The swim suits are cute but is she actually selling them at this point.

as its been said, his money is not permanent. I think she should stay because this man is not guaranteed to upgrade her from ratchet ho to respected housewife. he is clearly trying to control her and I think we all should stop pretending that draya is so above BBWLA lmao. I mean you can take this girl out of the strip club but she's still trash.

...can we note how shady this fool is? MAN. of course he wants her to quit the show, all of his dirty laundry is about to be aired out! if he is really as shady as people are saying, she needs to wise up and stop thinking this is what "real love" looks like.

I love seeing my fellow ladies be successful I do not think she is worthy of such worshiping and respect. I simply don't respect her lil Evelyn/professional ho hustle. just can't vibe with it. sorry!

Wanting a man with money doesn’t make you a hoe. The way you go about getting that man and securing his money as yours makes you a hoe. But I don’t have problems with hoes, I have friends that are hoe’s and they own it, so I know where their coming from. I get people don’t like being labeled but I’m human and that’s what we do. It disturbs me when one sex bashes the other like their better. I believe in being fair. So just like the men need to clean up their act these females need to stop scheming on someone else’s money and focus on their own.

Get an iron clad legal doc, take that money, quit that dumb show  and TAKE HER AZZ TO SCHOOL!! She is young enough to clean up and start over.   She wants to host parties, get a marketing degree, become an event planner and promote her own parties.  She wants a clothing line, go to fashion school, learn the business, get an intership, do it for real.  ED! U! CATION! Hustling got her here, EDUCATION will get her over the top and keep her there.  Oprah hustled and GOT AN EDUCATION.  Tyra hustled and GOT AN EDUCATION.  Draya needs to combine the street smarts with book smarts and quit depending on the game to come up.  It's bootstrap time, time for her to get that education and get away from ignorant sholenuff grown women who act like children for checks.
