Basketball wife Malaysia Pargo has announced that she is over the drama and ready to take on the role of the “bigger person” on the new season of Basketball Wives: LA.
Last season on Basketball Wives Malaysia may have started out conservative and relatively quiet, but it didn’t stay that way for long before she was hurling things at Laura Govan on the very first episode.
According to Pargo, however, all that has changed for the better and she isn’t trying to get caught up in the drama with the women she claims as her “sisters.”
“I think that whenever you get a group of women together there’s going to be some kind of conflict,” the bottle throwing basketball wife explained. “But at the end of the day, we’re going to show you a resolution to that conflict, and you know, we are all like sisters. And when you have a sister, they got on your nerves and you get into arguments, but at the end of the day that’s still your sister. You love her and look out for her. We’re not trying to hit each other over the head with bottles.”
Pargo went on to tell Ebony that she believes the public would appreciate a more peaceful and drama free dynamic to the show.
Of course, it does seem a bit ironic that nobody had this epiphany until after such reality shows were under fire for their excessive violence and outrageous behavior.
Atlanta Hawks player Jannero Pargo’s wife of 5 years did admit that she still isn’t going to be the sweetest cast member on the show.
“I’m going to keep it real: if someone steps on my toes the way Laura did, I have to defend myself. I had to let her know that, ‘no baby you’re not going to keep disrespecting me,’” she explained despite the fact that there was probably a better way to get her point across than turning to violence right away.
The mother of three has also revealed that the basketball wife lifestyle isn’t as great as the cameras make it seem.
Pargo admitted that although the long weaves and Christian Louboutins are great, she still has to take on the duties of catering to her man and giving him a massage after a long game.
While the basketball wife turned jewelry designer complained about the “not so lavish” side of being a true wife to a famous athlete, cast member Jackie Christie was busy dabbling into the music industry.
She was known to be one of the more outspoken of all the ladies in L.A, so it’s no surprise that she picked up a mic and decided to make music a career.
Her first single, “Woman of the Year,” debuted on iTunes and talks about none other than money, expensive clothes, and living a lavish life … because rap rarely ventures too far outside of that box.
According to Christie, however, the track is really just an anthem for “all you strong women out there striving for greatness.”
“Black Gucci shades, six inch heels/ if you don’t come from nothing you don’t know how it feels,” the amateur rapper says on the track. “Woman of the year, woman of the year/ Cash in the bra, haters in the rear.”
Pargo made the decision to make Christie a part of the group again after she had been isolated so it will be interesting to see if the “Woman of the Year” can get along with the ladies now that she’s finally back in the circle.
