EXCLUSIVE: Draya Michele Moves Her Son Niko Into Boyfriend Orlando Scandrick’s Home & Proves She’s A Good Mom On “BBW:LA” Ep. 3

He ain’t mama-less no more!

If you haven’t heard, well we’ve just got the first look at the upcoming new episode of “Basketball Wives: LA” (airing next Monday on VH1) and reality star Draya Michele has had enough of social media folks criticizing her parenting skills.

In season one of the VH1 hit show, Draya’s child endangerment charges were brought to light, when a police report states she left her son, Andraya Howard aka Niko — home alone– at the tender age of 7, so she could work an overnight job. She however held her own and responded to haters via Twitter. Get the full SCOOP HERE

Now, the “Fine A$$ Girls” boss lady is proving she’s a great mom letting the world know she has moved her son to the West Coast.

In the upcoming new episode, Draya decides to spend some quality time with her son, Niko, by having a nice little picnic brunch in an open California park.

During the brunch, Draya had a little one-on-one discussion with her son, you know, how he’s adjusting to life in California including his new school, thoughts on her new relationship with boyfriend Orlando Scandrick and living with the happy couple including Orlando’s twin girls.

When asked about living in California, Niko replied, “Good, everything is good“, and even admitted he’s already made a lot of new friends.

Draya also asked him if he knew why it took her so long to move him from Philadelphia:

“You didn’t want me to move like, like, in the middle of the school year.” He also said that he loves his new home because its “big, nice and pretty cool,” Niko said.

Draya opened up to her son and says, “I like being able to take you to school and pick you up everyday.” “That’s cool to me.”

She then admits her son is extremely happy after introducing him to a new lifestyle, new toys, new friends and a new father-figure, who plays for the Dallas Cowboys. This will be Niko’s second time making an appearance on the show.

Do you think that after a year of dating, it’s okay for Draya to introduce her son to a man (who’s been laid up around town), and is supposed to be a role model in [Niko’s] life?

Draya is also getting her step-mommy practice by bonding with Orlando’s twin girls and her son:


Early in December, the “Basketball Wives” star banger was spotted strolling through the streets of Cali… doing some early morning shopping with her son and Karrueche’s pal Ryan La Cour at The Grove shopping center in West Hollywood. (First Photo Above)
