Draya Michele doesn’t mind talking about sex. In fact, she loves it. The half Black, half Italian stunner and ex-girlfriend to Chris Brown, Draya is set to appear on VH1′s new Basketball Wives: LA show. Here, the very single video model/actress originally from Reading, Pennsylvania talks Basketball Wives, turn-ons and how having sex in public can be hot because of the element of being caught. Draya Michele is one stunner. C. Breezy was one lucky fella.
XXL: So, we hear you’re going to be on the new VH1 Basketball Wives LA show?
Draya Michele: Technically, that’s what they’re saying. One of the wives on the show is into acting and she does pretty much what I do, so we became friends and she introduced me to the rest of the girls. That’s Gloria (Govan, fiancée to LA Lakers forward Matt Barnes).
Have you been involved in the taping so far?
I’ve been involved in everything so far. When I got asked to do it, I was kind of iffy about it, but then it’s another window and another opportunity for me, so I just decided to do it. So far, it’s been an experience.
Fists have been known to fly on the Basketball Wives. Are you going to be scrapping?
I don’t know about that yet. You just got to watch.
You were recently quoted on the show’s press release saying, “I have a million haters. I open the list of haters and it rolls across the floor.” Why do you think you receive hate?
I think people hate on people, especially when the person is in a higher position in life. That person is always hated on. I look at it like I’m better than them, so why not talk about me? You’re not doing anything. It’s never nobody important who has hated on me. It’s always irrelevant people.
You’re Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend. Are you tired of talking about Chris Brown?
I’m definitely tired of that. I don’t think who you been with or been in a relationship with makes you the person. You make you the person. I’m already tired of my name being attached to his. It’s not a bad thing, but I made Draya. He didn’t make Draya. Anything good I do, his name is attached to it. Anything bad I do, his name is attached to it. We’re both tired of it. We’re on two different paths. He’s doing what he’s doing and I’m doing what I’m doing. It’s just kind of annoying sometimes.
What’s the craziest rumor you’ve heard about yourself?
Oh my God, I’ve heard tons of stuff. It’s like anybody and everybody I’m with. They’ve placed me in pictures. They’ve said I’m in a picture with Shannon Brown. I don’t even know Shannon Brown, so that’s crazy. One time I’m with Wiz Khalifa. They just say everything and there’s naïve people who believe anything. It’s a shame.
There was even a rumor that you were with Hulk Hogan.
(Laughing) Hulk Hogan? How do you know about that? Oh my God, that was supposed to be a secret, man.
Ha! Just kidding.
At first with the rumors I was like, ‘Why is this happening?’ Now, I’m like, ‘They’re talking about me again. I’m doing something right.’
For the ladies checking in, how was it being with Chris Breezy?
That was a long time ago. I got nothing bad to say about him. He’s a dream. Anything that a girl can imagine about him is true, beside the bad stuff. I don’t know anything about that. But all the good stuff about him is true. I wish him the best and the end.
