“Basketball Wives LA” star Draya Michele has always been pretty vocal and brutally transparent on her Twitter account, even if it gets her dragged plenty in her mentions.

The reality star is currently dating Dallas Cowboy player Orlando Scandrick, but she told her followers that a proposal and popping out more kids are the last things on her mind these days considering she’s more interested in expanding her online ventures.

But in the process of shooting down the idea of getting engaged and having more kids in the near future, it appears by her tweets that she made have thrown some shade Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s way.

She tweets (read from bottom to top):

    I can’t believe I’m about to say this but PHUCK IT…Draya is absolutely right. Yes, being married is dope for men and women ONLY if your partner doesn’t have you out here looking stupid. And in Gabby’s case, her man keeps her looking stupid out here. I wish her the best but she’s not the smartest accepting him getting some other chick pregnant and trying to make it right with an engagement.

    At least she has a ring! No one will ever propose to Draya’s a-s!

      Yo, please kill that “at least she has a ring” noise. It’s 2014. A woman is no loner validated by marriage. She’s only winning if she’s married to a man who respects her and saw her as marriage material before a break baby and before he impregnated her. Anything else is nonsense.

      • And What?

        January 22, 2014 at 9:16 pm

        LOL thank you!

        *no longer*

      • The Truth

        January 22, 2014 at 9:24 pm

        THIS. A ring is worthless if it’s from a man that does not even respect you.

    • Seriously?

      January 22, 2014 at 9:25 pm

      At least she has a ring? Really? *blank stare*

      Huh? So being cheated on is ok as long as you get the ring? I can’t.

        I can’t either. And won’t. LOL.

    I see no lies. But let’s tell the whole truth. Gabby isn’t the only one she threw some slick shade to. She also shaded the hell out of Ciara. Keep in mind that Future proposed to Ciara while she was pregnant. So her engagement is ratchet too to be honest. Even Kim K got a ring from Kanye after she had the baby.

    LOL! Draya is a hot mess. She told the truth though. It’s trifling that some men will propose to a woman only after they mess up royally or knock them up. But the women tolerate it (and say yes) so it is what it is.

    I agree with Draya. I love to see people get married but it’s really messed up that some women are accepting rings after they were dogged out so badly. Self worth is on the decline. Smh.

    She says this now but if Orlando proposed she wouldn’t turn him down. LOL.

    I am over here literally cracking up Gabrielle should feel like an even bigger fool now because even Draya taking shots at her lol. I can’t believe I’m say this but Draya is absolutely correct. I mean damn even somebody like Draya has certain standards out here lol. What does this say about Gabrielle. She should be embarrassed. Yikes!

    Draya isn’t really much better off herself tho. Didn’t her man get exposed for cheating on her recently? He just hasn’t gotten the side chick pregnant…yet.

    I so feel Draya on this. I want to get married one day, but I damn sure don’t want to be proposed to just because I get knocked up or my man got some other woman pregnant. I just feel I deserve better than that. Say what you want about Draya, but she came a long way and she’s much smarter than she used to be. I see growth when I look at her life now and I’m happy for her. But as for me, I’m about this money and building my wealth until the right man and the right proposal comes along. No rush. I value myself too much to settle.

      How are you going about building your wealth? I’m always interested in what others are doing to create wealth for themselves.

        Sorry for the late reply. Busy work day. But I’m getting into investing and learning about the stock market. Eventually I want to own some kind of business, but for now I figured investing is a good start to building wealth. Do you have any suggestions? And are you building wealth too?

          Vanguard has a great low fee index fund. it’s a great long term investment. index funds are basically a computer system that picks funds (think s&p 500) for you & no funds manager has ever beat the computer. CD’s & money market accounts (not money market savings) are great short term investment vehicles like if you need the money in 5 to 10 years. Buying a home when the interest rates are low & yes, getting married to someone who is earning a good salary that you can build a solid future with is a good investment as well unless he has to pay child support to someone he impregnanted while cheating (sorry Gabby). these are tips I picked up from people with money. feel free to rsch. also don’t be ashamed to be frugal.
