Dipping her toe into the dating pond, Malaysia Pargo hit it off with her silver fox date during “Basketball Wives” Monday, July 2.
The mother of two admitted she was hesitant to go out, but once she sat down with Ron across from co-star Cece Scott and her husband Byron Scott, she liked what she saw in the former baller’s cousin, Ron.
“Ron is really funny and very, very handsome,” she says. “His little look works for him.”
The double date seemed to go so well that CeCe was already ready to plan another outing.
“I really had a good first impression,” Pargo says in the confessional. “And I felt like we had really good chemistry so I wouldn’t mind a second date with Mr. Debonair Ron.”
Should things go well with Ron, this would be her first relationship since going celibate after calling things off with O.T. Genesis. Before then, Pargo was married to former Charlotte Hornets player Jannero Pargo from 2006 to 2014 after being with him since she was 18.
The couple initially separated in 2012 and when Pargo filed to divorce the father of her three children, she cited “irreconcilable differences” initially declining to discuss the details of the split, according to Madame Noire.
She later told HipHollywood that she was forced out of her marriage.
“[The single life] is something different for me. I’m not saying that I’m loving it. I was forced into it,” she said. “I didn’t have a choice. I’m more of a relationship type of person, so I would rather be in my marriage if I had the choice. But ish happens and I’m going to just have my faith in God.”
Despite the apparent age difference between Pargo and Ron, many fans — including fellow BBW co-star Evelyn Lozada — loved the two becoming an item.
“#BasketballWives awwww, I love Malaysia and Ron. So cute. And he seems like he can handle her like the beauty that she is.”
