What a difference a year makes.

Just last year Basketball Wives LA was riding high as the No. 1 telecast for women. Fast forward to today and the ratings have plummeted.

One-point-nine million viewers tuned in for last season’s premiere episode and remained VH1’s most social show on Twitter. Now, without Draya Michele, Basketball Wives LA is down to half a million ratings, losing out to shows like American Dad, Squidbillies, and Real Housewives of New Jersey.

I caught up with Draya, who still speaks highly of her time on reality TV show, and she told me she misses it, but wouldn’t go back, saying she made the right decision to walk away.

“It was hard to walk away, and at times I still miss it because there is the being-on-tv factor and the cameras following me around everywhere. Sometimes I’m at lunch and I realize I’m talking to another woman and I’m not being recorded. For a while it felt odd, but ultimately I think I made the right decision,” she said.

It looks like they might need to get Draya back, though, to boost those ratings.
