    Draya Michelle

    Fall in love all over again with Draya Michelle, the newest member of Basketball Wives: Los Angeles.



    AGE: 25

    MEASUREMENTS: 34D-25-36

    HEIGHT: 5’6”

    WEIGHT: 125

    ETHNICITY: African American and Italian

    HOMETOWN: Reading, Pennsylvania

    TWITTER: @Drayaface

    YOU’VE SEEN HER IN: “When the Money Goes, Honey Stay” video by Fabolous; “Little Freak” video by Usher featuring Nicki Minaj; “Walking on the Moon” video by The-Dream featuring Kanye West; “Under” video by Pleasure P; “Shake” video by Game


    KING: We sure love it when we get a chance to have models sex it up for the cameras with water dripping from their bodies.

    DRAYA MICHELE: I’m a very sexual person.

    We’ve noticed. Ever partook in any naughty aquatic acts?

    Of course I’ve had sex in water! I actually got kicked out of a hotel in Vegas for being a bad girl in the pool. I’m like a fish in the water. I’m just fine [laughs]. 

    Ah, do tell.

    My girls and me were chilling poolside at one of the hotels. We had a little too much to drink and became extra friendly with each other. For some reason, we felt as though we didn’t need our bikini tops on anymore. Needless to say, security came over and kindly asked us to leave.

    Ugh, such killjoys.

    We had a huge suite there anyway, so we continued our party in the shower.

    Way to stay consistent with the agua. You’re a new face on the music-video scene. How did you get started?

    I met Irv Gotti and he asked me, “Are you a video model?” I wasn’t at the time. So he introduced me to the legendary Hype Williams, and I shot my first video, “Walking on the Moon,” by The-Dream featuring Kanye West, days later.

    Your standout role, thus far, has to be Fabolous’ “When the Money Goes, Honey Stay.” You played the role of a girl trying to be a ride-or-die chick while her man is locked up. Does life imitate art?

    A better question is would I be around if the money was never there at all?


    Well, Walter Cronkite, would you?

    The answer to that is yes. I’ve had a poor guy, a rich guy and a jailbird. And the truth is, I loved them all the same.

    Then asking what type of man you’re attracted to is a moot point.

    I don’t say I have a type. I try to date someone different every time to avoid the shit I didn’t like about the last one. But my guy has to be handsome, educated and already established in his career.

    What’s the biggest misconception about you?

    People always think that every guy I’m with, I have to be sleeping with. What people don’t know is that I have a personality like a man. So guys respect me and want to talk to me on a friend basis. Also, I’m a businesswoman; I get out there and talk to people. Sometimes that includes dinner meetings or late-night drinks. I have friends in high places because they consider me to be on their level, not because I’m fucking them. I always say, “Fuck some guys, not every guy,” and I stick by that.

    Interesting, considering you’re in an industry where sleeping with your co-workers is prevalent. What are your thoughts on the urban-modeling industry?
 I think the urban-modeling industry is getting a better reputation nowadays because some of the models aren’t fucking everybody anymore.

    Hmmm…is that right?

    It’s rare to hear that a model is celibate, but if she can back that up, it makes me proud.


    Are you celibate?

    I am not. I can’t really go that long without sex. I’ll dig up one of my old boos before I go without.

    Why bring up the celibate reference? Never mind. It’s funny you say that, because the gossip blogs have outed you as Chris Brown’s new boo. Care to comment?

    I’m not answering any questions about that situation. So don’t even ask.

    But you did Tweet about being flown out to his hometown of Virginia, correct? You practically gave blow-by-blow details of meeting his family, being in the studio with him and being “still sore.” You’ve even gone so far as to post pictures on your Twitter timeline of you, your son and him before catching the movie Alice in Wonderland. Why stay mum on a subject you single-handedly put out there for people to speculate on?

    I’m not answering any questions about that.

    After news of you and Breezy hit the Net, blogs dug deep into your past and uncovered other alleged trysts with a who’s who of celebs and athletes—which include Lil Wayne, Fabolous, Darrelle Revis and DeShawn Stevenson, just to name a few. Thoughts?

    I don’t want to talk about any men that I know. It’s only going to bring more negative energy in my direction.

    Don’t you think you should take a break from Tweeting your personal business, then?

    I think Twitter is cool. It’s a way to keep in touch with the world and keep them informed of what you are doing, as well. As far as the stories that [the blogs] conjure up, they can pretty much take anything you Tweet and turn it into whatever they want it to really mean. I’m going to continue to Tweet as normal. The media can say what they want.

    That’s all well and good, but you do understand that all of this publicity stemmed from you Tweeting too much of “what you are doing” with Chris Brown, right?

    I’m not talking about Chris. Final answer.

    Since you’re taking that road, this interview is over.

    sigh says:
    I don’t know why everyone’s so quick to jump on Draya. It’s getting old. The whole bad girl vixen that everyone loves to hate things has getting tired. This is an immoral society with immoral people in it. Even the so called “decent” individuals are fucked up and do fucked up things. I mean people always have to have a common enemy when the enemy is ourselves.
