Malaysia Pargo is one of the stars of Basketball Wives LA, a mom of three (including a set of two-year-old twins), and the founder of jewelry company Three Beats. Though she could’ve been a stay-at-home mom, she decided that she needed to set an example for her children, both the boys and the girl.
“[W]hen my son was about four, he came and said to me, ‘Daddy goes to work everyday. Where’s your job at?’ I told him that ‘Mommy’s job is taking care of you,’ but he wasn’t really feeling that. It was at that point that I really thought about the need to show my kids all the facets of a woman beyond just mom, even though that is a very admirable and challenging role in itself,” she tells Black Enterprise.
Pargo discusses her role in designing the jewelry and the affect that the show has on her business. “It’s pretty much a free commercial,” she says.
