Draya Michele is proving she’s anything but canceled. The 35-year-old reality star and Mint Swim founder let her 8.1 million Instagram followers in on some big news today – Draya will be starring in a 10-part series airing on subscription-streaming service Zeus. It’ll be named after her: “Doses of Draya.”
If you aren’t up-to-date on the “Basketball Wives LA” alum, she’s been the cause of major drama these past weeks. Clearly, opening her big mouth and joking about “Savage” rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s shooting was not well-received. Scroll for the full details.
Draya, who knows a thing or two about success and watched the $12,000 she saved up to found her swimwear brand explode to the company’s 2017 $1 million valuation, will bring all aspects of her life to the series. The swimwear and clothing designer, actress, model, and influencer dropped a sizzling video of herself to break the news. She also made a statement.
“I’ve come a long way, from humble beginnings, and have continued to reinvent myself and evolve my brands over and over. I hope my fans have appreciated my honesty along the way.”
Unfortunately, Draya announcing she’s also going to be executive producer proved a source of mockery amid her followers.
Draya, who has largely been promoting her Kylie Jenner-adored Mint Swim brand and brand new Oh Polly collab on her IG, accompanied her bombshell announcement with a caption:
“Well guys the cat is out of the bag, ?” she began.
“After being off tv as myself for the last few years, I started to miss it. Covid has been eye opening and I decided now was the time to show off a few things.
The show is called “DOSES OF DRAYA” and is executive produced by ME …..”
The news comes amid Draya seemingly being dropped from her SavagexFenty ambassador role after the shooting joke, below and after the video.
In late July, Draya spoke on the “Weed and Wine” podcast and addressed 25-year-old Megan, who claims she was shot in both feet.
“I predict that they had some sort of Bobby & Whitney love that drove them down this type of road,” she said, adding: “I’m here for it. I like that. I want you to like me so much you shoot me in the foot too.”
Stallion fired back, but the biggest headline-maker was 32-year-old Rihanna’s underwear brand unfollowing Draya and wiping its social media of all promotional photos of her.
Draya, who has been backing Black Lives Matter and made headlines for tipping a waiter more because he was black, will be filmed in reality form and sharing behind-the-scenes footage of her life. The mom of two’s statement also read:
“As a woman of color, I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Zeus, a Black-owned streaming service, to share my story, and to let people into my daily life in a way I never really have before.”
Zeus has been responsible for bringing “The Real Blac Chyna” and “Your Best Life.” Meanwhile, Doses of Draya is the name of the Fashion Nova partner’s “blog” IG page.
