Basketball Wives L.A. – Round #2 – Laura vs. Draya

Episode aired:  09/26/2011

The episode starts at Jackie’s wedding reception.  Laura has verbally kicked Draya out of the circle during Jackie’s reception because Draya didn’t come.  Jackie follows Laura’s lead by putting Draya on her s*it list.  The girls are dancing and having a good time, even included a circle around the proud groom himself.  Wonderful to see the love in Doug and Jackie’s eyes.  Everything is great, but then Imani has a break down.  Thinking she has given her love to the wrong person for years.  She had a breaking point in Laura’s words.  The girls surround her and let her know she will find that love.

Doug and Jackie agree that Jackie did an awesome job with the wedding that included the highlight of her mom being able to witness the wedding via Skype.  Jackie explains to Doug, it is rude that Draya was not there.  With all of that being discussed, the most important aspect of the wedding to Jackie was marrying her loving husband of 16 years again.  While they ate a  delicious looking breakfast, the bed starts spinning and that’s the camera mans que to leave.

Imani, Laura and Malaysia go to brunch to talk about what transpired at the reception.  Imani saying most women want someone to come home to, to love, and to cook for.  Laura responds that she takes accountability herself, for the people that she has chosen to be in her life, even when she went back to those same people.  Malaysia is stumped on Laura and Imani’s past relationships and appreciating what she has with her husband.  Imani is looking for normality but Laura decides that there needs to be a kickboxing session to get that aggression off.  They conclude with Laura suggesting Imani needs some loving but uses another descriptive word and she thinks Imani will be fine after that.

Malaysia meets with Draya to find out why she didn’t come to the wedding.  Draya felt because it was questioned whether or not they should invite her.  Even though Malaysia and Draya couldn’t agree on what was actually said about Draya being invited.  Draya just didn’t think it was a proper invite.  She is also confused because Jackie called her to invite her to dance at the wedding which really took her by surprise.  Draya is not a dancer and wondering where Jackie got the fact that she does dance from.  Draya is concerned about the girls talking behind her back, but also having some regrets about not going to Jackie’s wedding and reception.  She is also, still wondering why she is always a topic.  Malaysia explains, “Everybody is a topic when your back is turned so tough it out and deal with it”.

Laura goes to see a therapist to get some s*it off her chest in her words.  Dr. Jenn, Family Therapist listens to her to gather information and understand her position.  Laura’s major concern is anger management for herself.  When she got into the physical altercation with Malaysia she didn’t see Malaysia she saw a long list of garbage.  Garbage being her past relationship of 10-years with her children’s father, which they are no longer together.  In a whole she was tired of the chaos, the baggage, past problems,  and drama in the relationship.  Dr. Jenn feels Laura was describing a relationship that was controlling financially.  Laura thought that was what she wanted in the beginning, particularly, being at home with the kids.  Dr. Jenn suggest that rage and anger is a secondary emotion, under sadness and fear to name a few.  She feels that Laura is trying to be tough, and strong but also putting on a game face with pain under.  Laura is advised to take some things off her plate, because she is dealing with her four kids that includes an infant and a lot of other things.  The meeting concluded by Laura being advised the best chance of dealing with it and finding power is accepting help.  Laura wants to meet again.

Gloria and Matt hang out in their kitchen and start off with discussing Matt’s third golf tournament for cancer, that was founded in memory of his mom.  They went on to agree on a double date with Jackie and Doug, and Matt lets it be known that he doesn’t want to be around the miserable single couples.  Lastly, Gloria ask Matt about having a  Botox party.  Matt is shocked considering his beautiful fiance is only 25 years old.  Although, he is not in agreement with a Botox party he says if she lets him have his way with her body, he will sponsor the party.  “Sex on call” for three days, is what he named the task and he is going to call his dad for some Viagra.  He makes her shake on it to confirm the transaction and she shakes his hand.

Draya meets with Jackie to explain why she didn’t go to her wedding.  Jackie says “don’t get up and greet me” because Draya didn’t get up from the table to receive her.  Draya pleads her case. Jackie feels that Draya should have been honored to be invited in the first place.  Jackie explains to Draya that she invited her against other people’s judgement, therefore, she looked forward to Draya in attendance at the wedding.  Jackie also went a step further to say, she didn’t think any of the other girls gave a fuck about her, but that was her opportunity to get in with the girls.  Jackie went on to say she didn’t like that someone put her in the middle of some bullshhh.  She was speaking of Malaysia but didn’t say her name.  Draya left with the understanding that if she hears of anything Jackie said about her, she will call Jackie personally to clear the air.

Malaysia went to meet with Jason the Jeweler of Beverly Hills to discuss her “3beat” jewelry line which stands for the 3 heartbeats of her kids to show them, she does more than wash their butts and take care of their dad.  The price line for her new designs were estimated at a whopping $700 – $3000, for CHILDRENS JEWELERY!

Gloria and Jackie meet to discuss Jackie’s meeting with Draya.  They are both mad that Malaysia didn’t say anything about speaking with Draya about the invite and the opportunity was when they were at the wedding.   Jackie feels that Draya is trying to test her which she feels is not a good idea.  Gloria says they should invite Draya to a kick boxing session with mixed martial arts, (deja vu with her and Royce), to take out their frustrations.

Laura and Gloria are meeting and right before Gloria approaches, Laura gets a call about Draya talking about Laura and her kids.  She really think she wasted a fight on Malaysia.  Details on a fight that Draya didn’t even witness.  They are talking about her maturity needed to be able to be in the circle, before she gets her feelings hurt or gets her behind whipped.  Gloria feels Draya is keeping tabs on her.

Draya and Malaysia go to MMA to learn kickboxing and Draya was excited to discover a Stripper Pole.  Draya works the pole and looks pretty experience, I might add.  For Malaysia I can’t say the same, she needs a few more lessons.  The other girls arrive and Draya schools them on the pole.  Eddie and Chris introduce themselves as the trainers at Legends showing the proper techniques, to kickboxing.  It seemed cool at first starting with  Gloria vs Jackie, Jackie just throws poor little Gloria down gently.  Then Gloria vs Laura and it’s hard to watch Laura take those frustrations on her own little sister.  Right before the Draya vs Gloria round, Jackie tells Draya to make sure she fights back.  Draya was not as afraid of losing as she is afraid her boobs being damaged.  Meanwhile, Laura tries to destroy an unsuspecting Draya and the girls have to be separated which is not cool!  Unfortunately, we have to wait until next week to see what happens next.

This show would be better off if the ladies’ have less one-on-one lunches and stop talking about people who are not in attendance.  The hearsay in this program is unbelievable, the kind of nonsense I would hope people would teach their daughters to avoid in high school.  It’s so unfortunate to see grown women play this game.  When will they focus on the lifestyles of basketball wives/girlfriends/fiance be brought to the forefront?

  1. Give a girl a pole and see what she can do. Draya Michele did her thing on that pole…
