Draya and her boyfriend Orlando Scandrick still going strong? Draya found the spotlight instantly when she signed up for “Basketball Wives LA” but the reality star’s time as a starlet of VH1 hasn’t been without its bumps in the road. Most recently, Draya’s skills as a mom have become a target of gossip and social media bashing, and she eventually spoke her mind on the accusations of being a terrible mother during her recent appearance on BET’s “106 & Park.” Now that her son and mother have moved to Los Angeles and have reunited with Draya, it appears she now set her sights on having a happy romantic life too.

As we reported recently, Draya confirmed her relationship with Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick by showing up on his arm at the 2013 ESPY Awards, many felt it was probably nothing more than a fling and the romance would probably be a short-lived one. And the assumptions are probably a result of Draya herself even admitting she’s not the luckiest when it comes to relationships, and at times she’s even said it’s probably best for her to date someone who isn’t in the spotlight or someone who doesn’t have a problem with her being in the spotlight thanks to her reality television stardom.

Regardless of the couple’s skeptics, it appears Draya and her boo Orlando Scandrick are still going strong. She took to her Instagram account to rep her boyfriend as he had an official practice on Sunday. She attended and writes in the caption:

Unfortunately for Scandrick, he was ejected from the official practice after he pushed an official. He later told reporters he pushed the official out of frustration but understands it can’t happen again.

    What I’ve come to notice more and more about professional athletes is they actively seek out the same type of woman they will complain about later when split and she walks away with half.

    Draya thinks she won the lottery. She can’t believe she snatched this one up.

    They look cute together.

    I’m kind of confused as to why he’s making Draya the wifey. She’s more so one night stand in my opinion. Cute pic of them tho.

    I just don’t understand men why would you make a groupie who has been ran through your main chick. Draya is a chick you send home with cab fare. I just don’t get it.

    Well I hope she’s spending even more time with her son. I won’t count on it though. He probably spends most of his time with grandma. You know how that goes.

    Ejected after pushing an official, oh yeah he’s a smart one.

    A sucker is born every minute. And most professional athletes are suckers. They want trophy women. Look good and be slutty as hell, and you will get wifed up. They won’t marry the Michelle Obamas of the world though. Too stupid to even hold a conversation with women of her calibre, so they only go for groupies. Kerry Washington’s hubby is a big fat exception. Not a norm in the least bit.

    WTF pushes an official in PRACTICE. No wonder Draya got him, he’s stupid!

    It’s so hard for me to take any of these reality stars seriously. Draya could be a great person, but just because she’s on that dreadful show, I just find that hard to believe.

    I wonder if Chris Brown hold her to the same requirements as Karrueche and told her she can’t date anyone else in the music industry.

    Is Orlando even a starter for the Cowboys? And where is Draya’s son? I’d imagine he would have a great time at Cowboys Training camp.
