Listen no one is perfect.  We all make mistakes.  We have all had trials and tribulations.  We have all done things that we regret.  The one thing you don’t want to do is compound your mistakes by lying about them.

I have nothing against Draya.  I don’t care if she was a stripper or dated a bunch of athletes and entertainers.  That is her business and her life.  If that is what makes her happy more power to her.

But when you lie on your child, don’t be surprised if someone calls you out.  It wasn’t gossip blogs or people trying to slander you that caused you to get arrested.  It was your poor decisions.  Here is what the POLICE had to say about why Draya was arrested, you might be shocked by what you read.

A 7-year-old Wyomissing boy was coming home from school to an empty apartment and spending nights alone while his mother worked in Philadelphia, borough police said Friday.

The boy told police that he would get off the bus most days and wait for someone to leave or enter the gated parking garage under the apartment complex in the 100 block of North Park Road so he could get into the building, police said.

His mother, Andraya M. Howard, 25, would leave the apartment door unlocked and microwave dinners in the freezer for him, they said.

Police arrested Howard at the apartment Thursday night on a charge of endangering the welfare of a child.

She remained free on $25,000 bail after arraignment before District Judge Ann L. Young in Reading Central Court.

According to court records:

A policeman found the boy alone in a disheveled apartment Dec. 16 about 2 a.m. after the boy called 9-1-1 and told dispatchers he was home alone.

He told Patrolman Kevin M. Quinter that he called his mother’s cell phone about 20 times to find out where she was. He last spoke to her when he called her after getting off the bus. She said she was at a tanning salon and would be home soon.

The apartment looked like it had been ransacked, with women’s undergarments scattered throughout the living room. A small dog was in a cage, and dog feces and dog urine were in several places in the apartment.

While Quinter talked to the boy, the youth got a TV dinner from the freezer, stood on the counter and put it into the microwave.

Police called the boy’s grandmother, who took him home.

She said she had been watching her grandson while Howard went to her job overnight in Philadelphia, but she had not been baby-sitting the boy for a few months.

Howard, who said she worked as a model, returned home about 8:45 a.m. and police told her that her son was in the care of the county Children and Youth Services while they investigated.

Police did not know the status of the child Friday.

They charged Howard on Dec. 30, but did not immediately arrest her because she agreed to surrender to sheriff’s deputies.

When she didn’t, police went to the apartment and arrested her.

You want people to give you the benefit of the doubt Draya, then you are going to need to be a woman and own up to your mistakes. Because this report here, didn’t come from any gossip blogs, TMZ or BSO it came from a police report that INTERVIEWED YOUR SON & MOTHER.

If even 15% of what your son said was true, that is awful on so many levels, you should consider yourself lucky people tend to forgive pretty faces.

You have an opportunity with your Basketball Wives platform to show people you aren’t what we think you are.

So far you are failing miserably, do better.

For those who think this is a made up report here is your proof.

Also you can download the PDF of the case here.

Draya also had a naked pic that was released today.

    I shook my head the entire time I read this. No 7 year-old child should have to be put through that. She ought to be ashamed.

    • TAETAE says:

      She was a young mother and don’t act like SH*t isn’t Brown. It’s hard being a single Mother at that. I’m not saying its right but, This girl has no reason to prove herself to anyone.. She’s grown and at the end of the day she has two mouths to feed..And no one will hand out Cash for free… It’s the past and she has her child now. Let DRAYA BE… SHe’s TRYING TO Make it and no Doubt she will… People mouths are her STEPPING STONE it will only get her where she wants to go in life.

      • Tia says:

        Thankk uu` TAETAE , uu` aree absolutely rightt ! she is not right for this & she paid her prise for it ! but GOSH , this is ridiculous ! Please let this grown woman live her life without people like yall ruining it *

        • Dom123 says:

          Being a young mom is no excuse. This just happened this year, 2011, she should be humiliated and feel ashamed of herself. What an awful parent and for moms who think thats even okay, feel ashamed of yourselves as well. If she gave a shit she should have taken on a job that would not require her to be a whore out with dudes at night and ditching her kid

    • nikki says:

      I don’t understand why does draya have to explain herself to any of those women because they don’t pay her bills, they don’t care of her son, and I don’t why these ladies are wanting draya to explain herself. Nobody on this show has a right to judge her because they all have dirt on them. SO, with that being said if draya goes off on these women, I just hope they know that she had every right. These women are pointing the finger at because they don’t want any dirt put out on them.

      • M.Jiggles says:

        I agree. She shouldn’t have to explain to them. They say they love their children. At least in The Real Housewives of Atlanta we actually got to see the kids. So, all we got is these women’s word that they love their kids. How come there is no mugshot? We always see mugshots when stars get arrested. None of Draya as surfaced so far. And, I want to go back to interview a minor (7 years old is a minor) with no legal guardian or parent present. They do that now. And, then they go tell what this child said to a report. WTH.

      • in2it says:

        It’ just like Snow white when the witch goes to the mirror and thinks that the mirror is going to still say that she is the fairest of them all. When these women on baskeball wives with Gloria look in the mirro they ask “Who is the hottest most sexiest basketball wife cast member and the mirror hollers “There is only one, Draya” but instead of them all getting together to give Draya a poison apple they all look her up on the internet, try to beat her up in a cage, and have an intervention with her like she is a drug addict. Same story, bitter older hags hate the young new beauty.

      • lori says:

        I agree! Further More I thought the last bb wives was trash ass……and the season is worse these ladies have no class!!!! They all come off as trash! Leave that girl alone (Draya) because each of them are equal in my eyes! TRASH! DOUG C is way to fine to be with that clown btw!!! Yep dislike all these ladies so much I will not watch this show anymore. If I wanted to see this bs I would go down to the welfare office!!

    • Pelle says:

      I have learned that its not what you know, its what you can prove, what happened to the references to support this accusation?

    • Pat says:

      Why are these BBW Knockoffs to judge anyone. Draya only need to fess up to God and apologize to her son. These get rich NMFF (Non Muther FFFFFng Factors) are not even LA. Where did they dig these trees up from. They got lucky and Draya is working to survive. I don’t agree to what she did, maybe she should have allowed her mother to help. But people try to take people kids for money. Unfortunately the system has him. But do what you have to do and get him back. Squirt on them BBW Knockoff and do your business. Get some mental help too.

    • Kimmie says:

      Well, the document seems very simple. Most of the time legal documents use terms and jargon that one must look up definitions. It very well could be a forgery. Why did only one officer respond to the 911 call? And they said that he called the boy’s grandmother and she came and took him home, but the next sentence said they told his mom that he was in the custody of the court or something like that, so which is it. Why did he allow the boy to fix a tv dinner instead of ordering him a burger or having his back up bring in some good hot food (meal).

    • rcadia501 says:

      Sorry folks! Draya said this was not true and it IS not true.This is a FAKE police report!You can google all you want but you will not find a criminal report on her as stated by this FAKE report.NOOOoow…who’da done sumpm’ like that? Another BBW on another coast? Tellem’ why you MAD Shaun tellem’ why you MAD!! “Cause they usin’ my music,my logo and they hooda’ than US!!!” But why you picked Draya? Cause you knew she wouldn’t figure it out and SUE YOU!!

      • rcadia501 says:

        OOPS!!! My bad. Found the actual newspaper! Readingeagle.com Couldn’t google cause paper lists her as Andraya M Howard.

  2. CBROWNLUV1 says:

    duh, it clearly states his Grandmother took him home, so therefore, he was not taken away from her ……

    • Nicki_Belviee says:

      EXACTLY!!!but i still think she dead wrong!!!

      • M.Jiggles says:

        If he could have been taken home by grandma why didnt he call her. If the report is to believe this isnt the first time this happened. So the child should have known the drill. If mommie is not reached called grandma. So, call the cops now? This whole thing sounds fishy if you really take time to examine it.

  3. TOO REAL says:

    Technically, her son was never in state custody because he was turned over to her mother. So, it depends on how you look at it. Not agreeing with what she did, I’m just saying, technically she didn’t lie.

  4. CBROWNLUV1 says:

    from the police report – Police called the boy’s grandmother, who took him home. The Grandmother had the son the whole time, when she went to the police station obviously whomever was on duty sent her to Children and Youth as they would have, cause Children & Youth would have needed to speak to her,Children & Youth told Draya her Son was with her Mother ……

  5. CBROWNLUV1 says:

    People are free to talk about this all they want, but they have to realize, there is a lil boy involved here who must go to school everyday and maybe just maybe just started to live all this down and here comes people bringing it up again…It is not affecting Draya as much as her Son…..THINK PEOPLE THINK BEFORE YOU REPORT

    • Denise says:

      Trust me her son is not reading this

      • kim says:

        its all over tv..

      • think of him says:

        in this day in age u never know. and just because he’s not reading it TODAY doesn’t make it okay…. duh it’s the web people this will not only follow her for the rest of her life but her son as well…although i don’t like her actions i’m with draya leave it alone why would you want him to keep reliving this?

        • New & Proud Mommy says:


  6. SoFlyDiva says:

    Think before you report? People are really something…

    Don’t blame Robert for writing up something that Draya did. If she had taken better care of her son, then the boy wouldn’t have called 911 and there’d BE NOTHING TO REPORT. He probably was scared out his mind!

    Robert is right… people do tend to forgive pretty faces… If this were anyone else, everyone would be calling her a deadbeat mother…

    • think of him says:

      i don’t think it’s matters how pretty you are wrong is wrong. but okay robert wrote it up her son was removed there were actions taking against her etc. what more do you people want? I have to wonder if she wasn’t who she is would this really get this much play. i’m pretty sure she was treated as anyone who endangered their childs life. but my questions is;is anyone really thinking about her son? everyone is upset at the situation but did u ever think about her son and how he’s reliving this?

  7. CBROWNLUV1 says:

    The other side of the coin, is if it would have been anyone else, would there ever have been such a huge write up about it in her local paper ????…..I just think of how the son must feel, this happen Dec 2010, now this is a new school year and has to relive this all over again….let it alone already for hsi sake, while kids may not talk, they overhear their parents talk and things trickle down

    • nicegurl says:

      What everone fail to realize is that this girl had this kid at a very young age and she really didn’t know how to rise him then and she probley still don’t.If she did she wouldn’t be on tv she would be trying to fix her mess up with her son and what about her mom she knew her daughter needed help an did nothing remember she said she didn’t keep baby sitting him for months draya was still working so why would she think a 7 year old didn’t need her as well. so all though what she wasn’t right for what she did the apple don’t fall to far from the tree. I think she could use some counseling and parenting classes.

    • k howard says:

      Ummmm I am from her town and grew up with this girl and just so you know it wasn’t a “huge” write up in the paper it was in the police log thank u an have a nice day!

      • Silly broads says:

        Yes she did LIE. Andraya’s son was taken into custody of children and youth from HER aprtment and then released to the grandmother. You women make me sad you should really look for better role models and shame on VH1 for conrtibuting to Andraya’s child neglect and lies. Also would like to point out NOBODY from Reading, PA especially the police know who she is or who she was dating. She is known of by our high school class for being a smeeze who smashed every thug and baller in the city then went on to bigger better thugs n ballers by stripping at Delilah’s in Philly. Also I see some people interested in baby daddy. That would be nate workman real classy drug dealer, who is in prison. So Andraya knows damn well she picked that winner and her son has no one but her and she is FAILING. Take your VH1 money and take care of your SON! Stop chasing baller sperm.

        • Thejoy22 says:

          It’s so sad that misery loves company and we all can see your envy. Remember judge not are you will be judge. The button line is things happen and many of you woman are faulting her. Where is his father he is the one that should take blame as well. This country has taken things out of order…Half of the women in the U.S are not married and are single parents. Be care who you speak on because you will see your life spiral before your very eyes….

          • Silly broads says:

            well I speak on what I have opinions on. I have previously met Andraya on one occasion in high school. (She was fist fighting a girl over some dude LOL)She has bad rep in Reading only because of her own actions. Im certainly not envious as I am happily married and gainfully employed. I’m just appalled at the attitude of its fine to neglect a child cuz other people do it too and shes pretty so she cant be guilty. I really hope her son gets help and someone who loves him and puts him first whether that finally be Andraya or not. The boys father is in jail where he belongs. Andraya should accept responisbility for her actions and apologize and start being a mother, and I believe many people would be quick to forgive and help, myself included.

        • young tia says:

          Look at her lookin like a real DUMMIE sit in the pic smilin wit all them ones but couldnt pay a sitter! REE REE lol

        • Monica says:


        • Suckerfree says:

          Damn you sound jealous you must want we she got. You sound like a angry high school girl who mad at the pretty girl. LAMFO…..

  8. lsk says:

    I feel so sorry for the boy. Every child deserves better treatment than that.

  9. Nikki says:

    This makes me so SICK…… All these comments and not one person asked the correct question……WHERE IS THIS CHILDS FATHER!!!!! Why is it always on the mother…. I am tired if the child is not being taken care of then both the mother and the father should go down…… You help make the child and you need to step up and make sure he is cared for just as much as the mother…. Get a life people…. MY mother was on drugs when I was going up sometimes there would be NO FOOD in the house…..Where was my father? Living in a big 500k house with plenty of food and anything he wanted making over 200k a year, yet he did nothing when I beg’d to come live with him…… WHERE IS THE FATHER??????

    • ally says:

      That’s so sad. I’m so sorry you had to go through that. I don’t know if you ever received counseling but it might help. So many people had traumatic experiences growing up and sometimes we need alittle extra.help to recover.

    • k howard says:

      The fathers name is Nate and he is in jail! as a mother it IS her damn responsibility

      • esh says:

        It’s his responsibility as a father to stay outta jail and help raise his son PERIOD….

        • k howard says:

          But he can’t get out now can he??”!! Dummy so until then its HER responsibility ummmm I feel sorry if u have children cause ur idea about motherhood sucks! So if the dad is dead or sick as hell the mom shouldn’t have to do it alone cause he should of kept his ass alive? Girl go read a book n lay down!

    • tiana says:

      I agree…. where is the father and why isn’t anyone dragging him through the mud? she is a single mom and does what she has to do…. people are so quick to judge and point fingers…. only one with power to judge is HIM up above!!!!

  10. LSS says:

    We ALL make mistakes, commit acts of poor judgment, do things we wished we wouldn’t have, have probably done some things we hope to God that noone ever finds out about. I don’t agree with what Draya did but why do we often want to continue punishing someone for something that they will ultimately have to live with? Draya will have to explain (if she already hasn’t) to her son why she did what she did and that is between them to work out. If her son never forgives her or even if he does then that’s their business. I think that sometimes some of us (I’ve done it too) often play the judge and jury as if we have never ever committed any wrongs and the fact is..is that we all have. @Nikki I understand what you are saying about the kid’s father but we don’t know the circumstances involving why he isn’t around (at least I don’t). Draya’s lapse in poor judgment aside..maybe she doesn’t want him around, or maybe he chose not to be around but whatever it is at that particular time she had custody of him and so she is the one held responsible for his health and safety.

  11. OCMom says:

    “Howard, who said she worked as a model, returned home about 8:45 a.m. and police told her that her son was in the care of the county Children and Youth Services while they investigated.”

    It states right there that he was taken from her… did yall skip that part?

    • ynggranny says:

      Having been (and still is) on the caretaker side of this type of situation, Children and Youth services (it’s called Child Protective Services where I’m from) does NOT have custody of this child. Since the little boy was able to give the police a number for his grandmother, that’s where he went. Once they got Draya, she had to sign a Voluntary Short term Placement form which states that the grandmother is responsible for the boys welfare. This is only temporary and until she goes through whatever classes the Department requires her to go through.
      There’s a LONG process before a child is actually “taken” from their parent. I’ve been through it and is actually going through it again now.

      • Sunny says:

        How is it the grandmother’s fault? We don’t know why she stopped babysitting. How do you she didn’t try to help Draya and Draya didn’t abuse that help or take advantage of her.

        As for whether or not her child was “taken” from her, he was. CPS removed the child from the home and opened a case on her. The little boy was lucky enough to have a grandmother who loved him enoug to show up and take responsibility for him. Otherwise, he would have been placed in foster care while they investigated. Either way it goes, the boy was not allowed to remain in the home with her and was removed from the filthy house and placed in the care of a responsible adult. In my book, that constitutes having him “taken” from her.

    • esh says:

      But it also said grandmom took him home!!! Did they know where he was??? And if it were as bad as it’s made out to be y isn’t anyone mad at the officer who thought it was a good idea to not arrest her immediately???? They let her decide when she was arrested but everyone is worried about her decision when it should be the authorities decisions should be questioned!!!

  12. Wow Robert,

    I feel sorry for her child. Hopefully, she learned from her mistake and can move forward. I hope the child can also move forward…. Maybe some counseling or something might help the kid.

  13. just wondering.. says:

    How was this report obtained? Was it from a newspaper article? What was the name of the paper and the date it was published? or What city or municipality did it come from? Do you have a direct link? I was just curious because I had wanted to see the official document, or official publication. Thanks

    • just wondering.. says:

      It just seems weird, she was making money doing what she does, she probably could have paid for a sitter. I don’t know, just seems like something is missing…

      • Sunny says:

        She didn’t come home unti 8:45am the next morning after she told her son she would be home in a little bit. That’s probably why the grandmother stopped babysitting, she probably stayed gone for days at a time. I just hope she has learned her lesson and is now putting her son’s welfare first. Kids require sacrifice. From the little I have seen of her on BBW-LA, she seems to be about one of the realest on the show. She seems like she has a lot of potential, she just needs to make better choices. I want to know what dirt she has on Imani, LOL! There is definitely something more to why imani hating on her so much.

        • think of him says:

          you should google imani i think you’ll be shocked at what u find but everyone is on draya…. at least she didn’t give her son away and lie several times oh and who is the real golddigger? look her up DRAYA lied cuz she didn’t want people in her business she never denied or agree to the statments she just said her son was took and there were alot of stories about what happen.

    • k howard says:

      Its reading pa the newspaper is called the reading eagle if u type in andraya howard in a Google search the article will come up

    • Maryanne says:

      I was wondering the same thing…Is their an actual document or reprt? So I did a little research myself! Unfortunately ANYONE can log onto this site courts.phila.gov & as long as you have the persons last name 1st 2 letters of their first name& county (in her case Berks) you can review crimial hearings & dockets …..Again unfortunately, she was definitely charged with child endangerment & still on probation!!!!!!!!!!

      • Silly broads says:

        Yes she plead GUILTY so lets not act like she is not up on tv lying trying to make herself sound better and look innocent. Step 1 is taking some damn responsibilty. I feel sorry for her son. You can also google UJS (PA unified justice system and search by her name to check out her criminal charges if you want proof, you can also see how she was so conerned about those charges she has another criminal case pending for DUI now. Great parent!

        • AMH says:

          Thank YOU! Someone has sense. I am a beautiful woman….big deal! You can be classy not trashy and showin’ all the assy! That scoochie(a cross between a stank and a hoochie) endangered a child! You should be crucified! Leaving a child in filth and hungry! Are you people serious? It is scary knowing you defend her, I feel sorry for your children. He should have called his grandmother? NO! She should have made sure he had care or stayed her stinking ass home! She lied about it, the proof is in the police report. She would not be crying if it wasn’t true! Beauty fades, dumb is forever! That poor boy has to go to school, kids are mean already, just imagine what he is going through when they pull those pictures of her. If that was my mother, I would be under my bed. As far as the father…she pick him! Blame yourself for your “baby daddy”! You picked him!

  14. sabra says:

    yes this is dead wrong if its true i dont think it was something that she did all the time because the average ‘latch key kid” would be used to it and never called the police this kid acted like a kid thats use to his mom doing what she said she is going to do and sincerly became scared when she didnt show.give the girl a break every young mother makes mistakes.but who the heck made imani the moral police you know this “perfect itch’ has some skeletons in her closet that will never be revealed these women act like they are better because they were willing to run behind,put up with bull ish,from these dudes for years some even lockn in child support by having kids and they still sre not with them now so if going with a guy and it eventually doesnt workout makes you a jump off…..theyare all jumpoffs except jackie and that itch is just str8 insecure and crazy anybody that has to go through that much to keep and man faithfulnis sad thats not love thats obession and he is a real punk for allowing it what she fells to realize he is yesterYEARS news aint nobody checkn for his old a$$

    • Gail says:

      Sorry Saba, but I was a latch key child, and no you dont get used to that….My sibblings and I had to endure the harsh realities of our mother’s drug addiction, where we would find ourselves home alone on various occasions in the waking hours of the night & on daily occassions as well…we’ve struggled with that through out our childhood, some times I’d wished that I was adopted by some one because of having to grow up the way that I did…I was depressed, I went through harsh verbal, emotional and mental abuse by my mother,so No a child shouldn’t have to get use to being neglected by their parent(s)…

    • Anita says:

      How did Laura feel when people was accusing her of she f—ing Shawnie’s man. Did she
      fuck him? Let’s judge that and talk about that s–t on the show and maybe Draya can choose whether she wanta to be around that type of chick!!!

  15. A Real Mother says:

    Wow – there is never an excuse for a 7 year old to be left alone to fend for themselves. I’m sick of hearing excuses for people who put their children in danger (it’s their upbringing, it’s the father of the childs fault, it’s her mothers fault, she needs parenting classes, she was so young, blah blah blah). Take the kid away from her period! Why do people today accept bad behavior so easily? This isn’t a “mistake”!!! This is blatant irresponsible parenting & should NEVER be tolerated by society.

  16. Laka says:

    If the dog was in a cage how could there were feces and urine in several place of the apartment and only under garments were scattered? Really? Time and names don’t make this a police report. If the did arrest her right away, how did they know she came home at 8 in the morning. Whatever. I want to see a mugshot.

    • k howard says:

      Actually from what drayas mother told my cousin who works with her at the bank was that the cop actually waited for her to show up! He was disgusted with her because he has a 7 year old child. He told andraya she was foolish and that it wasn’t a joke as she was taking the situation lightly like it was no big deal. He told her that there was 50 some registered sex offenders in the area and was basically yelling at her for her stupidity and he was gonna go to ever court hearing to make sure she was punished and she is currently on probation!

      • NaeNae says:

        I want you to shut the hell up…If she wanted her business out then she would put it out. GO get a LIFE. Yo ass is probably on probation..!

      • Silly broads says:

        She also has a current criminal DUI and toher charges pending in Montgomery county. So she has oh so obviously taken repsonsibily for herself and her actions (SARCASM)

      • think of him says:

        you seem to be a hater why are u so concerned with putting her business out there? are u trying to earn some kind of points by knowing someone who know someone that might know draya? u clearly need a life and need to stop dick riding….

        • k howard says:

          No dumbass I’ve know draya since I was on elementary school!n her mama she a white lady named Valerie an andraya aint nothin big out here! She just hoe ass andraya that been strippin since we was in highschool! Girl please I dont need no points for knowin her u act like she Beyonce status or somethin lol! N if I want to put her bi out I can! She on TV Lyin bout it im jus telling the truth!

  17. shaq says:

    She didnt lie tho she said that she has her son still and she does and she dont have to bring her past up on the show like really its no one business.

  18. Starr says:

    The thing about it is, its hard for a lot of young mothers to rasie children on their own.. where was the damn daddy? He shares equal responsibility in this issue. We need to statr helping out young mothers as opposed to tearing them down. It could save a child’s life! Someone who loves this girl needs to reach out o her and let her know that she has support. She can be a stripper, model or whatever, but she needs to makesure her child ins in proper care first. It takes a village….

  19. Jessica says:

    i wonder why no one has posted the ACTUAL police report.. not just what the report said- lmaooooo

  20. B says:

    DAMN thats a dumb ass 7 year old. I remember when I was 7, i loved staying home by myself. Momma told me don’t open the door for nobody or tell anybody your busniess. .

    This situation is unfortunate. I know what it is like to be a young single mom who has to work to provide for her child. But for the fact that she left her child alone in this situation to go “tanning” is unexceptable. If she is stripping and dating professional athletes and entertainers then she should have the cash to pay for a sitter, mother or not someone should have been put in place to care for the little dude. Then she stayed out all night, not bothering to even call and checkin or her son is neglect. I am not judging, just calling it what it is. Then she gets on TV and tells a lie about it. Yea it seems as though she may not have learned a lesson maybe she should have just said that she was not going to discuss the matter rather than lie. But when she got to talking I could tell that she was not telling the truth, she was skating arround the important facts. For example she get to talking about how clean her home is and that her son goes to school from her district.
    The bad part is not that she has lied about the alligations but that so much harm can come to children who’s parents neglect their safety and care. I know and hear of so many children who has been sexually abused and physically mistreated and children do not deserve that. I hope that she will do what she can to make the situation better and not happen again.

      Amen! Thats what im sayin its not what you do its how you do it! BUT damn she gettin tans n got herself n gucci n gold n got her son n a pissy apartment alone eatin frozen dinners everynite!!She got the game f@#ked up!Where they do that at? I remember walkin to the store with my big sis once, n some guy was tryna get her # so bad he was real nice lookin, n a nice car, dress from head to toe so she stoped n gave him a lil convo while I went on ahead in the store so when I came back out im all young n hype givin her props n evthing…my sis was like please he was n a two seater…. n im like ok? so? n my sis said “SO WHERE IS MY SON CAR SEAT GONNA GO” n I didnt really get it then but i do now.Basically once you have a child its not jus about u anymore you become a package deal the minute u give birth. So anything after that is gonna have to benefit you n ya CHILDREN whether its men,jobs, etc.Men cant jus worry bout you n dont give two shits bout ya children thats HUSTLIN 101 cuz if she was the shit like she want evbody to think she is, whoeva she stayed the nite wit woulda paid for sitters, meals, n anything else i needed for mines!!! Cuz we all know she aint stay the nite at no damn tannin salon n lyin bout it is jus makin it worse if you didnt want evbody n ya bizz why go on national tv she done parole yet(I BET SHE DONT NEGLECT THEM MANIS&PEDIS and them BRAZILIAN WAXES)lol

  22. Tiffany says:

    I Honestly think you guys are treating her like a horrible person everyone makes mistakes she’s young . & wants to party that’s understandable but yet she should have own up and just ask her mother to baby sit instead of just letting her child stay in a dirty apartment . It’s kind of sad how all these young mother can lay on their backs but not raise there own . Maybe she should be more focus on other things she has a great opportunity ahead of her on the Basketball wives – Good Luck Draya :)I only wish you the best! ( & keep your head up! please don’t let ridiculous haters get in your way you are a shinning star in so many ways )

  23. Shay says:

    Shitz ridiculous!!!! If you gonna kick it with A listers the FIRST thing you do is get your baby on mf POINT!!!! That is why people do not like her! Look at the content above! I know we all sin and come short of His glory, but c’mon now…. Some things you just do not do! Never trust a big butt & a smile because what’s behind closed doors is absolute madness!!! I have no respect for a chic that mistreat, beat or starve their own flesh and blood! She should not or anyone like her don’t need to be on t.v.!

  24. teresia j says:

    Well u cant believe everything in the media for one no matter the source n two ppl need to mind they business n stop judgin when your nt God n three half them girls from basketball gt some nerve n need a reality check that girl who called her worthless lonely n need to gt a life stoo hatin n handle ya own home front i like drea n dnt feel how anybody can judge n dnt even knw her get real n get u some business

    • young tia says:

      Yessss!Magority of us agree that they b hatin on her…BUT,let me ask yall this: how in the hell can Draya come up wit 25,000 for bail but cant seem to come up wit no sitter money??? Dont she work?Aint that the reason she said she left him?That boy did not asked to be here!!!Yall gotta stop makin excuses!She fucked up from jump by havin a baby wit a unstable person if she was old enough to b spreadin it wide, im sure she knew the diff between bf material and jus a person you keep as a boyfriend (she aint slow in the least bit) If she wasnt ready to have a kid she had options n I dont care if Draya had a bad childhood!(join the club)I did too n thats even more the reason why i would never do my child like that!When you reach adulthood you cant keep blammin ya parents for why u fucked up WHEN U KNOW BETTER YOU DO BETTER!She mite aswell put him in the cage wit the damn dog, n the last thing i would b worried about is bein on bbw-la is she crazy?!! n now she mad cuz people know her biz wtf did she think was gonna happen

  25. Kiesha says:

    so where’s the actual report????? mug shoot?? when other people get arrested they normally have all that to back up their claim.. i personally dont believe it… everybody tryna be famous of somebody else… show me proof not something a cop said.. F*ck cops.. Leave the girl alone…

  26. andre says:

    You people are a bunch of morons wheres the proof that this was actually said by the police ???? Idiots believe everything they read

  27. mimi says:

    I had my first child at the age of 16 & my second when I was 19, my mom put us out and I had nowhere but the shelter! I don’t give a Damn how old she was or if her mama didn’t help cause she wasn’t lookin for mama when she was spreading them legs! She can get a tan but that baby eating tv dinners sitting around dog shit? No she needs a case! I don’t feel sorry for anyone except the boy! I hope at least she’s seeking parenting classes in between shows! I pray that she become the best mother with all of her capabilities! Cause the only one she is going to have to answer to is her son and God, I don’t believe in kicking. A person while their down but God don’t make mistakes and maybe this needed to happen for her to see what’s really important, I hope she can pull the blessing out of this tragic situation and do right by her baby, in our fathers name, amen!

    • Thejoy22 says:

      Im sorry but I didn’t see God anywhere in your comment. God forgives others for there sin… it’s people who judge. Since your speaking biblical and have past judgement her sin is no different from your sin of having a child out of wedlock. be careful of what you speak on another persons life because your children will have to grow and god forbid it happen to them. We have to speak life into others life and not death we should be uplifting this young sistah in prayer. We all have to face judgement. My question to you is how clean is your walk? No sin is greater than the other…..

    • Tina Marie says:

      Oh so ignorant you need to give yourself some advice since you are worst than her.

      • paparoach says:

        Finally someone with common sense on here. Tina is right. First child at 16 and you didn’t learn to keep your legs closed? Birds of a feather… such a true cliche.

  28. Carey says:

    I do understand that she was pretty young when she had her son, but that was 7 years ago and she had 7 whole years to learn and grown from her misstake, it don’t take a rocket scientist to know, not to leave your son home alone at any cause. She repeatly left him home alone. I get it.. She did it once and got away with it, so lets do it again and again.. WELL now you have gotten caught… PLEASE learn from this misstake and take care of your son. Shaking your ass and screwing around with different men, will all come again in time, trust me…. This is your sons time now, USE it wisely. You will NEVER get it back..

  29. Jamie says:

    People can be so judgemental, she made a mistake leave her alone. I dont condone, and thank GOD ive never had to endure but she was young and its been at least 10 yrs ago if she doesn’t want to own up she doesn’t owe anyone anything im sure the ordeal was painful stop forcing her to relive it

    • paparoach says:

      Why are you thanking god you’re not in her position? You’re better decision making skills spared you her fate. Her decision making skills are what resulted in her being preggers in high school and a stripper at 25. That’s not judgement, that’s reality. And the reality of bad decisions and their consequences are usually not that pretty.

  30. Nvjprncess says:

    OMG, So many comments, nothing but JUDGMENT!!! The only person that can judge you is GOD!!! Everyone should try worrying about there own life instead of focusing on someone else’s imperfections, choices, career, lifestyle, mistakes, etc. I don’t personally agree with some of her public choices and lifestyle but as a human being we all have freedom of choice. Now her son will have to be faced with torment everyday by kids who are taught how to hate and judge the way their parents are doing to her. Sometimes people just suck or make stupid ignorant choices, why not help change things by promoting change and rehabilitation instead of hatred and prejudice. Come on ADULTS think on it!!!!

  31. DeeDee says:

    Seriously you people are slow.. It’s not like he was a two year old. So she was teaching him at a young age how to be independent which so many of our children need.. It never said she was gone for days, it said he was left at night.. That could just mean her job required her to work Thurs – Sun. She would leave early and come back late.. Obviously he either didn’t know that she wasn’t normally home by 2am or this was the first time. Why else would he call the police. Dang use your head.. If he was use to being left alone and there was food in the house and he knew how to fix his own meal why would he get scared are worried and call 911. Ding!!!! He sounds like a latch key kid whos mom just happened to stay out later than normal and he got worried it happens to the best of us. Get a life… #TeamDraya

    • Silly broads says:

      DeeDee you are a retard and I hope you dont have any children you are teaching to be “independant”
      This 7 year old BABY called 911 because he was SCARED and ALONE. She repeatedly left a SEVEN year old home alone OVERNIGHT. To get to school by himself, to make meals alone, and come home to a trashy messy apartment ALONE. SMH. Put your CHILDREN first b!tches!

    • NaeNae says:

      Thank You..! I agree..! Fuck what everybody else says..!

    • paparoach says:

      Clearly the Dodo bird didn’t go extinct. It evolved into the modern day dumbasses like yourself that think it’s ok to leave a 7 year old at home in filth with frozen tv dinners all night while you go out let strange men throw money at you. World is overrun with too many morons. Judging by comments here, stupidity is contagious.

  32. NaeNae says:

    Honestly you guys should be ashamed of yourselves for all the NEGATIVE comments..! First off, There are PLENTY of kids now these days that come home at the age of 7 and be there ALONE until the NEXT MORNING..! People these days do what they have to do to survive. Daycare..You have to pick your child up by a certain time. When i was a child I use to be at home until 3 the next morning because of how my mom worked. Second, The ONLY reason you guys know about this is because of her status. If she didn’t have the celeb stat then you would know NOTHING about this. So Fuck all y’all…stop acting like she is just a HORRIBLE MOTHER when there is PLENTY of more mothers out in the WORLD exactly like her. You just don’t know about it. &If you would like to know where my father was…He died when I was 5…So don’t be dragging people through the mud if you don’t know what the hell is going on then SHUT THE FUCK UP..! #TeamDraya &Another thing…The police report might not even be right…How many Andraya Howard’s are there in the world…Dumb ass people…THINK…WHAT THE FUCK…THAT’S WHAT YOU DUMB ASS HAVE A BRAIN FOR..!

  33. Bbob2011 says:

    The World is not and never will be a perfect place.Even Jesus sufferd on earth so therfor we will ALL suffer.Try as you might You will never be perfect.Why do we hide our faults? Who hasn’t? Draya I wish you blessings and fogiveness for you and your family.

    • paparoach says:

      Shut up with the religious babble. What she did was classless and reckless. She needs to suffer the consequences for her behavior.

      • think of him says:

        and she did but it’s stupid ass people like u that won’t let her and her child live her life like i said before i don’t agree with her actions but everybody makes mistakes and deserves a 2nd chance…. where the f was your parents? what r u hiding cuz u seem to be one sad ass person…

  34. Stephanie says:

    Nae Mae you ate ignorant don’t matter her status obviously you taking up for her cause you would do the same to your child and that is no mistake especially when it happens often y’all all should be ashamed for taking up for her I have a 8 year old and I would never leave my child till next mourning what if a pervert knew he was a home alone or a fire broke out or he slipped and fell or anything could have happened and where would she would have been getting a damn tan so not cool and every time time you get arrested you don’t get a mug shot you can be processing in and out and also she is on a show now what person you know that’s on TV who business don’t get put on front street if it’s negative she put her business out there for even being on the show and as for us judging never that I actually like her but when you have a child you think the world of you would never put them in that danger and I it is true its in public records sound like y’all just gigot her back cause she is on TV if he would have died comments would have been different and famous or not she was wrong

    • NaeNae says:

      No bitch you dumb…none of yall get it…damn…if yall just gon judge her then jude almost 80% of single parents…like promises..laws are broken. We not supppsed to have weed but people have it. You not supposed to murder anyone but people still do. Instead of worfyong about her yall need to be worrying about wtf theg did to Troy Davis..! Unless all yall care about is bashing the girl…! &Y’all call yourselves GROWN..! Grow the fuck up & act like it..!

  35. Tina Marie says:

    Whats funny is how these woman looked her up like they are so perfect, it seems they are jealous of a very pretty girl, woman or lady. Child Endangerment could be anything, in that case 80 percent of the population should be in jail, so many people leave their kids home, however its all in how mature the kid is, I figure she didn’t have money for child care. Thats why its great to make friends. I bet its hard for he to find good friend because she so pretty. Just telling it like it is bing in th military both m and my husband its hard trying to jungle everything, now I wonder how he was dressed at school and how he was doing in school. Its crazy how woman kill their kids and get away with it but Draya is tortured by these women just to be on the show, Girl keep youe sanity.

    • paparoach says:

      You sound dumb. There are laws surrounding what age groups and what length of time kids can be left unattended in the home. And the police clearly stated the home was filthy. That’s a factor too. Stop talking about what other mothers have done. We’re talking about this mother. And you’re probably just like her. Birds of a feather flock together.

  36. p1tey1 says:

    Can’t believe she would endanger her child that way. That’s inexcusable, especially if her mother lives nearby. I highly doubt a grandmother would allow her 7 year old grandchild to be left alone. I know she has to work to support him but to leave a 7 year old alone like that is just irresponsible.

  37. paparoach says:

    You people sound like idiots taking up for her. “Oh she’s young.” She’s effin 25. I’m her age and no one is letting me pull that “I’m young” b.s. when I mess up. She’s far enough into adulthood to know better. If she kept her legs closed at 18 she’d be able to run the streets without a care. She’s reckless and irresponsible. Call a spade a spade and stop the bleeding heart bullshit. She’s not that attractive and definitely not attractive enough to overlook her bird like behavior.

  38. Angie says:

    Wow…People please read carefully. Grandmother was watching the kid this whole time his mom was working as stated in the police report..here it is again.

    She said she had been watching her grandson while Howard went to her job overnight in Philadelphia, but she had not been baby-sitting the boy for a few months.

    So that being said it was the grandmother’s responsibility to watch and care for this lil guy. Draya did the right thing and did provide a sitter for her son, but obviously not the best. Sorry… Please put your kids first they didn’t ask to come in to this world. Draya I hope the best for you and your son.

  39. Barb says:

    Okay, this young lady made a mistake! Let’s get over it and move on, and let her & her son move forward as well. None of may never know the full scope of her story. Regardless; she should have not left her son w/ no sitter. At least she had been working from the sound of things.
    The senario could have been worse. She could have been home with her son in a some drug or alcohol induced coma like so many kids with awful moms & dads. She is trying to do better now, so let it happen.

  40. Miquel Liff says:

    excellent points altogether, you just gained a brand new reader. What would you suggest in regards to your post that you made a few days ago? Any positive?

  41. Ms. Williams says:

    What she did was wrong yes, but everyone including most of the Basket ball wives are hatting on this young beautiful girl. she is the topic of discussion for what?? everybody need to mind their own business and leave her the hell alone. all they do is gossip on that show i bet if she was ugly all this would have passed over by now!!

  42. delredd says:

    yes that’s a damm shame 4 her 2 do that 2 her son, but hopefully draya has learn her lesson. these other old no good ass bitches of the bbw’s of la. are not perfect look at jackie with her oldest daughter she hates her on flesh & blood, jackie kick her daughter & her 2 small kids out her house no 1 not telling her shit about that. imani never raise 2 of her older kids same thing no 1 not down on her big ass either. with laura/gloria i don’t like these bitches nor the rest of them at all.malaysia is ok but a lil sneaky, when these whores saw draya it was time 4 all them 2 hate on her,it’s so stupid 2 hate like that on 1 person when their all black women. i only watch the show bcuz of draya. is draya bi or gay? i still like her on the show. keep ur head up draya and double fuck the rest of the bbw’s of la and every1 else that hate draya kiss her high yella lil cute ass!!!!!!

  43. young tia says:

    Evbody keep sayin its all theses moms and dads doing the samething Draya did evday(blahblahblah) Why dont people stick to the topics and the facts!Yall rite we dont know the other 80% of parents that neglect their kids but if we did we would b givin our opinions bout them people too shit. Anyone with a hart would feel sympathy for children being neglected or mistreated!Im not saying parents dont make mistakes OF COURSE they do!!But this was a pretty huge avoidable mistake! I think alot of people are more offended by Draya because, typically when children r neglected your expecting disfunctional households, physical abuse,sexual abuse, or parents that r addicted to a substance etc. But when u see a young intelligent young mother of sound body,and mind, that to my knowledge never was a substance abuser makin good money even then and, dating clebs n athletes that prolly helped financially neglecting any of her kids let alone the only child she has to go tannin?? COME ON!! all nite??sum of yall may have had parents that worked overnite but i bet they was there when yall got home from school prolly helped yall wit homework, yall ate a cooked meal,took a bath n u was sleep when they was workin.Then, her child was callin her back to back he coulda been hurt or anything and sumone should feel bad for her?No excuse but laziness selfishness

  44. M.Jiggles says:

    There is something fishy about this story. How can the police interview a child without their parent or legal guardian present? The fact they couldn’t get a hold of grandma and mom was nowhere to be found how can they have the child’s statements. Then, there is the issue of it being a child how come all of this information is front page news. This stuff is usually kept under wraps for the protection of the child. Then, let’s go into the fact that these women google Draya don’t they have no life. If you don’t like her then leave her the fudge alone and keep moving. And, how did one get a hold of a police report? A police report that looks photoshopped if you asked me. But, what do I know. I just know as grown women they need to check themselves I bet if someone googled them we will find a whole bunch about them.

  45. Daijah Tiedt says:

    This police report doesn’t prove anything. I’m not saying that she did or didn’t do those things, but the report does not prove anything. Yes it could be true that she got arrested, but there is nothing on the docket that say she is guilty of anything, who called 911, or anything else she is being accused of.

  46. sydney says:

    wow she should be arrested for the rest of her life that filthy hoe

  47. Ebbie says:

    Seriously? I can’t believe people are on here saying she is a young mother. Who gives a damn. If you are old enough to spread your legs and make a baby, you should be grown enough to take care of that child and make sure they are safe at all times. The fact that she is a stripper and making her money has nothing to do with it….get a sitter if you making that kind of bread. I’m just saying…selfish!!

  48. Darlene says:

    I think it’s a crying shame that the older women on BBW’s are wasting their time trying to put this young lady,Draya on blast. JACKIE abandoned her eldest daughter to chase Doug around with her insecure, immature, ghetto behind! Frankly, they’re all married, gold digging groupies themselves! Actually, correction, most of them are baby momma drama queens who have kids to secure a certain income. Since Tanya Williams is gone, without explanation, I’m done with the embarrassing show. She was ostracized because she didn’t want to participate in a senseless fight? Really! I might add, these reality shows have placed a bad light on these women. The Embarrassing Shaq whore fighting over the truth while trying to demean Malaysia was hilarious in a bad way. All at a few episodes away trying to fight little Draya on a sneak tip. Smdh! Then to parade over Jackie’s house to purposely find dirt on Draya was comical! In conclusion, Draya did wrong for leaving her son alone, but older women should be there to help lift her up. Not to tear her down. If she has a Dui, obviously something is troubling her. The firststep of our tribe is to stop crucial crucifying! Start loving and justifying positive change by not being so hateful when you live in glass houses! You or I may not have Draya’s exact experience, but we all have sins we’re not proud of, don’t we? Safe Journey!

  49. Qua says:

    Her being young aint no excuse my mother was fourteen when she had me and never left me alone. First off theyare not much as judging her but showing concern for what she did to her child and how it would affect him in the long run. Instead of thinking about how she feels start thinking about a young boy coming home alone with no parent around and being scared. yha’ll focusing on the wrong person and how thet feel they whole reason for talking to her was about the walfare of her son not her.

  50. Lady S says:

    people are so quick to pass judgement on what they don’t know. They just believe what they hear and don’t even know if it’s true. I still don’t believe this is true. Anybody can right up a fake police report. Even if it was true she doesn’t owe anybody but her child an explanation.

    • K, Peace says:

      Draya, is the only bad mother?! ABSOLUTLY NOT and to be honest she is a good mom and we all have made bad decision as single moms and the intent is never to harm our children. How about the others that have babies without any income and expect their way to be provided for by the fathers they laid up with unprotected! Just because…Not saying that he should NOT TAKE CARE, but to be solely dependent on that is being lazy~ Have not heard of any these ladies having a job of any sort. Just one the Malaysia! It’s all a mess and Draya if I were you I would leave this show continue to do me and tell them where to go and keep it moving! You would be all the better without these ladies wanted to find fault in you as if life for them is perfect the disrespect of not allowing you to speak as an adult right there is where you need to start…I’m as grown as you if not ever more at least I take care of mine regardless of your approval or not! Jackie, I think your heart is in the right place embrace Draya, because she needs your strength and not one more thing or person to try to knock her down. She respects you and your marriage and you have not given her the opportunity to share that with you. She said she knows how you crazy you are about your husband in respect of it not to belittle your marriage! Follow your heart and not the words of others! Opportunity for a wife, mother and a women with much to offer to pour into another. Blessings!
