She’s known as the peacemaker, but Malaysia Pargo said she’s about done trying to mediate the drama between her “Basketball Wives: L.A.” co-stars.
“Overall, the biggest thing I learned is that every situation can’t be fixed. Sometimes you have to let it go and let them figure it out,” Malaysia told Juicy magazine.
Malaysia tried, unsuccessfully, to bring her castmates together during season 2 of the VH1 show. Her compassion for Jackie Christie helped bring her back into the fold after being ousted from season 1 of the series. Malaysia also tried to mend things between her BFF Adiz Bambi and returning co-star Laura M. Govan.
“I asked her that when she came on the show and met the girls, not to judge them from what I’ve said. I told her to use her own judgment. I believe in fair shots. Again, Bambi is like my sister, but I wanted to understand all of their sides and put myself in all of their shoes,” said Malaysia.
Though she was unable to turn the cast into one happy clique, Malaysia’s not letting it bother her anymore. However, she can’t promise that she’ll never return to her peacemaking ways.
“At this moment, we are not taping. So, I’m going to enjoy my life for this moment. If God puts it on my heart to reach out to them, I will, but for now, he’s letting me rest,” she said.
