Does Malaysia Blame Reality TV For Her Failed Marriage?
Back in May, we received the shocking news that Malaysia Pargo filed for divorce from her husband, Jannero Pargo. Although she didn’t offer insight into what tore their marriage apart, there have been whispers of infidelity being a contributing factor. Considering how so many relationships seem to fail after one or both parties in a couple appear on a reality television show, there was also talk that Malaysia’s participation on VH1’s “Basketball Wives LA” placed a strain on the relationship. But the mom of three says that this definitely is not the case.
“You can’t allow outside people to change anything about your relationship or your love for each other. I love him, but I’m just not in love with him, so it had nothing to do with ‘Basketball Wives’ at all,” she told Sister 2 Sister. “It was definitely a decision between us to end it.”
Malaysia went on to reveal what being married to Jannero has taught her.
“When a person shows you who they are, you gotta believe them. It’s basically, if they do it once, they’re kinda going to do it twice. When I see something that I don’t like…I need to walk away from the situation.”
She also adds that effective communication is a must if two people want their relationship to work.
“Communication was one of the most important things that I learned that keeps a marriage together. If I had asked him the necessary questions beforehand, I wouldn’t be in that situation,” she said.
As for how she’s adjusting to being single:
“I’m finding who I am without a man. I’ve been in a relationship since I was a little whippersnapper,” she said. “I haven’t dated in 12 years. That’s totally new to me.”
“It’s different raising three children on my own and working and trying to do entrepreneurship,” she continued. “Those are some things that have me a little apprehensive. I let God guide me…I never speak fear in my life.”
Although she previously stated that she’d much rather be married, judging by her Instagram page, our girl is thoroughly enjoying the single life.
