If your blood is still boiling over the way that Season 8 of Basketball Wives played out, you might want to get a grip. At least, that’s the message star Malaysia Pargo is sending to people still coming at her neck about it three weeks after the reunion wrapped up.

Late last week, someone tagged her (and Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O’Neal) in their question about the reunion having “missing parts,” and it seems the 39-year-old had just about enough. She reminded the commenter and people like them that the season is over, saying, “PLEASE MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIVES. We all have!”

“Some of you are way too invested in the lives of people you don’t know and will never meet,” she added. “If you get nothing else in life, GET A GRIP.” She completed her thoughts with the tweet, “VERY weird, Chile…”


That didn’t keep people from giving Pargo a piece of their mind, though.

O’Neal shared a similar sentiment when people accused her of being a colorist bully.

“Now, you know, it is what it is and it’s just entertainment guys. Don’t get so invested. You’re getting all of about three percent of our real lives. Trust me,” she said in October. “For all reality TV, and all the viewers of reality TV, just be entertained,” she added. “Don’t invest your feelings, your heart, your soul into reality TV. It is entertainment. And that’s all that it should be. K?”

While she certainly hasn’t gotten it as rough as O’Neal or Lozada, Pargo certainly has seen a number of her former fans turn on her. It’s been pointed out that When O’Neal, Lozada and Tami Roman came to Los Angeles to film the show after the original Miami series they came from was shelved, Pargo and former co-star and BFF Brandi Maxiell of the L.A. franchise found themselves at odds with those women. O’Neal literally said Pargo had no “substance” and was too high school-ish, and she found herself at odds with Lozada while Maxiell was given the boot from the series soon after.

So when OG Chijindu joined the cast and found herself misunderstood in the same way Pargo and Maxiell were in the past, some were surprised that Pargo sat comfortably with the in crowd of O’Neal and Lozada and talked poorly of her. In addition, she left friend CeCe Gutierrez to be made fun of and disrespected by her new batch of friends. She also abandoned her friendship with L.A. original Jackie Christie, but that was a bit more understandable because of that whole rumor Christie kept telling people about how Pargo was allegedly caring for her kids.

Nevertheless, many accused Pargo of acting brand new and as Season 8 went on, she had less and less to say about it on social media. The fact that people are still talking about it weeks after she felt she was finally going to get to move on obviously has her feeling some type of way. Is it annoying? Probably. However, when you open up your life on reality TV and get paid for it, one shouldn’t be surprised at the opinions expressed about how you choose to live it. Just saying…
