While Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada is talking with Iyanla Vanzant on how to make a change for once in her life, Basketball Wives: LA cast member Malaysia Pargo isn’t regretting the behavior she’s exhibited thus far on reality TV.
Speaking with EBONY.com, Malaysia says she doesn’t think certain situations – i.e. her fight with Laura Govan on the very first episode of the spinoff – could’ve been avoided.
EBONY: We’re living in such a “mean girl” reality TV era, and the “Basketball Wives” franchise sort of ignited the fire. Do you look back and feel you could have done some things differently?
MP: Honestly, it is reality and the way I reacted toward Laura was the way I felt at that moment. 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”. The right thing to do was probably to walk away, but that was a situation that I kind of couldn’t walk away from. So I guess if you were to ask me if there was anything I would have done differently, I did try my best to get her to calm down and it just wasn’t working. I couldn’t even walk away from it. She wasn’t having it. She wanted to fight so, I had to give her one.
