Draya Michele dragged herself out to CVS to get laundry detergent yesterday. The 35-year-old reality star and Mint Swim founder, whose COVID-19 headlines have mostly included a quarantine life showing off that bikini body, took grabbing essentials into her own hands on Thursday – the “Basketball Wives LA” alum cycled all the way from her L.A. mansion to her nearest CVS, and she uploaded the whole thing to her Instagram.
Draya is fresh from causing a slight storm as she drizzled “three tablespoons” of butter onto her “KINDA HEALTHY SALMON.” Keep scrolling for both that and her CVS outing.
Draya’s stories kicked off with her slightly out of breath and backed by sunny L.A. horizons as she approached the store – no face mask: Draya had “forgotten” it. The ex to Orlando Scandrick was looking absolutely sensational, seen flaunting her gym-goned body in an electric blue, mesh, and see-through-panel bodysuit that later featured in stories showing her working out.
Draya explained that she was “gonna ride the bike to CVS to get some laundry detergent, but I forgot my mask…BUT…I am riding the bike…so, yeah yeah.”
Draya made headlines earlier this year for reminding Instagram that she “officially owns the corner.” The photo of a giant Mint Swim billboard over L.A. gave a nod to the company valued at $1 million in 2017 – Draya founded Mint Swim with the $12,000 she saved up, now seeing customers include Selena Gomez, plus billionaire Kylie Jenner.
Promo for Mint Swim has seen Draya eyeing up L.A.’s heatwave and putting her signature stamp on those Instagram updates – “I like ’em 6ft away,” Draya captioned a string bikini photo in April.
Draya – whose career now also sees her as a Fashion Nova partner, Savage x Fenty ambassador, and Revolve collaborator – caused a stir on Instagram yesterday after her “KINDA HEALTHY SALMON” showed her drizzling three tablespoons of butter onto her dish as she cooked in tight satin pants for her 8 million followers. Draya admitted that butter wasn’t too healthy, but she “grew up” like that.
“I see y’all in the comments doing exactly what I said not to do,” she wrote.
And people were commenting.
The video, now viewed over 420,000 times, brought in a mixed response.
“Leave that butter alone, homie,” one fan had written.
Then again, back-up arrived – “Butter is healthy! Butter substitutes are filled with crap and hydrogenated oils which are the true heart stoppers. ?,” another said.
“Is this the ayesha curry set?”one user asked – Draya has been using the 31-year-old cookbook queen’s gear, although Ayesha herself proved mega–slammed this week with a mesh bra photo in a paid ad for Play-Doh.
Draya has also made headlines amid the global pandemic as her 2011-founded Mint Swim brand donated Chipotle burritos to L.A. hospital workers with a partnership that Doordash “doubled.”
