Draya Michele Engaged: ‘Basketball Wives’ Star Engaged To Football Player Orlando Scandrick

Draya Michele is engaged! According to People Magazine, Draya and her beau, Orlando Scandrick, are planning to tie the knot after getting engaged last week. The Basketball Wives star is excited to take the next step with the Dallas Cowboys cornerback. The couple went out for drinks last Thursday evening, and while at Arclight Cinemas in Sherman Oaks, Scandrick surprised his girl with a ring.

“He told me to dress casual and we ended up going to where we had our first date. 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.”

Draya Michele got engaged with quite the impressive bauble, too. The 6-carat, cushion cut ring is “more than” Draya expected. According to Us Weekly, Scandrick, 28, designed the ring with Jason Arasheben, CEO of Jason of Beverly Hills, jewelry designer to the stars (and beyond).

Mr. Arasheben said that he enjoyed working with Orlando to design the perfect ring for Draya (check out the photo below).

“It was a pleasure designing this ring with Orlando. He was one of the most detailed oriented clients. He wanted to make sure the ring was perfect and she couldn’t be happier.”


As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Basketball Wives LA is set to air its fourth season, beginning on July 12. Fans are really excited for the show to resume, and a snippet from the upcoming season just about went viral when it was posted last week. It is unknown if Draya and Orlando will be on the show, or if any of their upcoming wedding planning (or their wedding, for that matter) will be featured on future episodes.

This is Michele’s, 30, first marriage. She has a 12-year-old son from a previous relationship. Orlando Scandrick has never been married before either, but he has 5-year-old twins of his own.

Now that Draya Michele is engaged, fans wonder if that will cause any kind of drama on the show. From jealously to fights over the bachelorette party — this could definitely get interesting. Do you watch Basketball Wives LA? Are you a fan of Draya Michele?
