Draya was recently in the ATL and sat down with Urban Kompass TV to spill the tea on the Basketball Wives LA experience, what new projects she is working on, why you don’t need a baller boyfriend AND drops the bombshell that she may NOT return for season two!

Somebody better get VH1 on the phone because no one wants to watch those old crazy ladies without Draya!

The mother of three tweeted bikini photos of her new slimmer body in a sexy leopard print Victoria’s Secret bathing suit! “Ok y’all this is the the winner for my St. Barths trip,” wrote Imani. Not sure who she was heading to St. Barths with but she is definitely on the prowl!

Can’t deny the thickness! Hopefully these pics & her island vacation will help Imani follow in Stella’s footsteps and get her groove back!
