Things aren’t looking good for “Basketball Wives L.A.” It seems the season 5 start for the VH1 reality show mid off to a rough start. We’re talking a decline of nearly half of the show’s viewership compared to the premiere of season 4.

Here’s what Global Grind is reporting:

Just last year “Basketball Wives LA” was riding high as the No. 1 telecast for women. Fast forward to today, now that the show’s biggest star, Draya Michele, walked away from the series, the rating have plummeted.

Last year, “BBWLA” was seen by 1.9 million total viewers for its premiere episode, and during the season it was VH1’s most social show on Twitter.

Now, without Draya, “Basketball Wives LA” is down to half a million ratings, losing out to shows like “American Dad,” “Squidbillies,” and “Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

Well, it seems the obvious answer is to call Draya and be ready to pay her a fortune or say goodbye to the franchise.
