Former Reality TV star Draya Michele was first known as being a basketball groupie.

After she made her debut on VH1’s Basketball Wives she was constantly tormented by her cast mates for being involved in relationships with multiple celebrity men. Her most popular relationship was with R&B star Chris Brown. But she also dated Fabolous, Kenyan Martin, French Montana and other very high profile celebrities. While appearing on the Wendy Williams show, the talk show host openly called Michele a “slut,” on national television.

During her stint on Basketball Wives, her cast mates made her life hell. They were very disrespectful of Michele’s relationships, personal life and even made negative remarks about her child. Despite the obstacles, Michele has found a partner and started a business that has been very successful.

Michele took her earnings from public appearance and the reality show, and started her own swimwear line. Mint Swim offers sexy suits for women who want to swim in style.

The swimsuits are reasonably priced ranging between $100-200. The unique designs have become rather popular on Instagram and Facebook and her success has very little to do with the show. While surfing Instagram we hashtagged #mintswim and saw several hundred women posing in their Mint Swim wear. That is a pretty big deal on social media.

In addition to her successful  swimwear collection, becoming a female model for Rocawear, Michele is also launching a new web series with ModaMob, a well-known beauty website. This web series will feature Michele giving sound fashion advice to fans that admire her sexy but simple vibe. There has been an outpouring of support for Michele and her new found success. Michele has been featured in magazines

Most reality stars only get fifteen minutes of fame, but only the smart and savvy do something productive with their time. Michele took her negative attention and turned it into a successful business that will allow her to surpass reality television success.

As the youngest cast member she has the mindset and fan base to solidify a career. Her fan base has grown exponentially; most of them never watched her on Basketball Wives. Though Michele still makes appearances on Basketball Wives we know there is more to her than just a pretty face.
