Draya Michele Says Reality TV Rots The Brain


Draya Michele Says Reality TV Rots The Brain!!!

Once again the Former BBWLA star Draya Michele Slams Reality TV Again since we found a tweet from Draya Michele Says Reality TV Rots The Brain.

CelebNMusic247.com knows those statistics about reality TV, but we guess Draya is now quoting stats? We find that interesting since Draya got her start on the small screen thanks to “Basketball Wives LA.”

If you watched season 4 of Basketball Wives LA, then you noticed that Draya started to hate being on the reality show, and it became difficult for her to get along with most of the cast, so she quit during the filming. She also refused to be on the reunion since she no longer wants to be part of reality TV.

Now her is where she contradicts herself, because Draya was heard saying that she would return to BBWLA if she got a raise and if the show got a major cast revamp.


As for Draya these days, she loves to discuss what she’s watching on a regular with her Twitter followers, and the other day she expressed that even though she got her start in reality television, she now feels like it does more harm to the viewers than they realize.

Apparently she thinks reality television is bad for the brain and stopped watching reality TV last January. In fact, she took to Twitter like she always does and posted this remark:

Brandi Weighs In on Mehgan Angel and Patrice



Brandi Weighs In on Mehgan Angel and Patrice!!!

We previously reported on Brandi Maxiell speaking about her marriage with Jason Maxiell, but the Basketball Wives LA star Brandi weighs in on Mehgan Angel and Patrice.

When it comes to season 4 of Basketball Wives LA we learned that most of the ladies were NOT fond of them, so Brandi Maxiell took it upon herself to weigh in on Mehgan Angel and Patrice.


Here is what CelebNMusic247.com has learned via Brandi who speaks on the additions to the cast this season, where her marriage stands, and what it’s like to deal with infidelity in the professional basketball world.

“I think last season was a surprise for me, I didn’t know what to expect, everything went by so fast and I couldn’t really gather my thoughts. I was guarded last season and I didn’t know anybody, except for Malaysia. This year is totally different because I’m confident. I didn’t know how the world was going to judge me and how they were going to think of me. I think it’s more so, just me feeling confident, and I know the girls now, and secure.”


What are your thoughts on Mehgan, Angel, and Patrice being around?

“I definitely thought at first Mehgan was a question mark for me but as time went on, what viewers didn’t get to see, they don’t get to see all the date nights or, you know chit chats that Megan and I got to have on camera, because they didn’t air it so it looked like we just became friends out the blue. As far as everybody else, I love Patrice, I love her story. Her story with her and Eddie is awesome. I feel like it’s just a different side of the basketball world – what her and Eddie went through. As far as Angel, I feel like Angel kind of, to be honest with you, I feel like Draya kind of ho-ed her out a little bit. [Laughs]”

“I just feel like she left her hanging. You know, Draya brought her onto the cast, and then when Draya brought her onto the cast, she left, and then left her friend there in front of all these women that she doesn’t know, and it was kind of hard on her. [Draya] left her there to defend her in some ways where she wasn’t there. I just felt bad for Angel, because she really didn’t get a fair chance. She came in the middle, and everything was already established. You know, it was unfortunate, we didn’t really get to know her, know her.”

Maxiell adds:

“To be honest with you, Draya and I used to talk on the phone, like four hours a day, especially when it was filming. I’d never heard Angel’s name before in my life. So, she was new to me. I know Draya’s friends, and I never heard of her before. I’m not saying they’re not friends, I feel they’re friends, and I said that when we were filming, it’s a business friendship.”

What do you think of Brandi’s opinion of the newbies?

Brandi Maxiell Opens Up About Her Marriage



Brandi Maxiell Opens Up About Her Marriage!!!

Basketball Wives LA season 4 is over and the fate of who returns is up to Shaunie O’Neal, meanwhile Brandi Maxiell Opens Up About Her Marriage.

Brandi and Jason have been going through marital bumps ever since he cheated on her and she’s be finding it difficult to forgive him. She has had to deal with cancer ridicule after surviving cancer. No one knows how hard that is, so when Draya said she was boring for her cancer story line she was out of line.

If Draya ever has to deal with cancer, maybe one day she’ll finally get a clue how rude that was and as for Tami Roman, we love you, but next time save your opinions. Draya is heartless and always hurts with words. Don’t defend someone like that.

Now back to Brandi Maxiell who opened Up About Her Marriage to Jason Maxiell.

Where do things stand with you and Jason since the show wrapped?

“Today, we are working on things. We’re not 100%, we’re not perfect like we once were before. It just takes time, you know we’re doing what we need to do, what we feel that we need to do, what’s best and I’m really taking my time with it, because I don’t want to jump into a situation and then it falls back to what it was before. I’m not rushing because the people want us to get back together, or he wants to. I’m doing what I feel is best for me, because I was the one that was hurt. So we’re just taking our time with it. But, I can say that we are a million times better than when I was filming.”

About the infidelity stuff with Jason, back in season 3 did you know about his cheating?

“[Laughs] I knew you were going to mention that moment. When we went to drinks last season, and we talked about that, it kind of looked like it was like, “Yeah girl, he cheats, you don’t know?” But it wasn’t like, “Girl, yeah I’m okay with that.” It was nothing like that, it was more like, “Dude, he’s a professional athlete and we’ve been through things like any professional athlete couple have been through.

When that stuff went down [with Jason and I] it was before we were married. It was just when he was fresh in the game and we’ve dealt with you know the groupies, the sidepieces, whatever people want to call it. So, I wasn’t dealing with it in my marriage at that moment with Draya and Malaysia last season. I remember doing my confessionals, they would stop me and be like, “No, you’ve got to stop putting s— on you, it’s not because of you, it’s him.” Once I had my son, it was all about my son. I was like that mom by the book. You know, I did everything right. Every time I had a break I never went on date night, I never did anything that we used to do as a couple. And I went through postpartum [depression] and I really just forgot about him. When you forget about him, and you neglect your husband, you know, they get neglected and they do stupid things, and I think that’s what happened. Even though I feel like it was my fault on what happened, he was supposed to be responsible enough to be my husband, stay faithful and stay, and continue to be the husband that he’s supposed to be but we’re here. . But, you know, we’re here.”


What kind of conversation did you and Jason have before you signed up for Basketball Wives LA?

“They wanted me to do the Miami version of Basketball Wives, and I was like,”Eh, no, I don’t know.” Then they told me they coming out with the LA show and I was game to do it but I couldn’t film, because I got pregnant. Then the next season, I was just like supermom, so I was like, “No.” And then it came up again for the third season, and I was just like, I don’t know. I remember Malaysia was like,”Come on, just do it,” and I talked to Jason about it, and he was like, “Do it.” I was against it, at first. I was just like I don’t think it’s right, just let me do my business.

He was like, “Just tell your story, just get out there just to say you did it. You just never know what’s next and what opportunity can come with you doing the show.” So he was 1000% supportive. He never once said, “No, I’m not doing it, F— the show.” A lot of players would be like, “You can do it but I’m not showing up,” that kind of thing. He was supportive, and he’s always been supportive with anything that I do, so I wasn’t surprised at that.”
