Well, this is a surprise!
After calling it quits just last month, Draya and Orlando Scandrick have found their way back to each other and the Dallas Cowboys player proposed!
Orlando and Draya have been together for over two years, but took a break last month due to “living very hectic lives” according to the Basketball Wives LA star. But it looks like Scandrick couldn’t live life without his bae, so the baller put a ring on it. Draya shared the news on Instagram, along with a pic of her 6-carat cushion sit diamond.
Draya also spoke to People magazine about the proposal.
“He told me to dress casual and we ended up going to where we had our first date,” Michele tells PEOPLE of the special night out at Arclight Cinemas in Sherman Oaks. “He was acting so weird and so nervous. When he walked up to the bar he tripped and fell over some chairs! I was thinking ‘What in the world is wrong with him?’ ” “He got down on one knee and as soon as he started to talk I got nervous and couldn’t help but to laugh hysterically. I was laughing and crying at the same time.”
Congrats to the happy couple!
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
