Exclusive: Malaysia Pargo Talks ‘Basketball Wives LA’ + Possible Spin-Off Show?



VH1’s Basketball Wives LA might be making some changes with the cast come Season 3, but according to co-star Malaysia Pargo, it’s going to be pretty juicy.

“It’s amazing,” Pargo told HipHollywood while on the red carpet for Floyd Mayweather’s Annual Celebrity Classic Toy Drive and Basketball Game. “We have some other new girls, so it’s going to be an interesting twist … Draya and I have a dynamic interaction with each other, so we are going to make it do what it do.”

And when asked if we can expect a spin-off show, Pargo explained that there could be something in the works. “Maybe,” she said. “You’ll see, you’ll have to wait and see.”

Pargo will return to the hit show with co-stars Draya Michele and Jackie Christie, but most notably absent from the return of the LA based program are the Govan sisters.

HipHollywood caught up with Laura and Gloria earlier this year who shared exclusive details about their own spin-off show. “It really is going to just kind of bring a different light on what we represent as real basketball wives and just the league in general. It really just is going to focus on kind of the ups and downs and everything else that kind of involves being in a relationship with a professional athlete. And sisterhood too,” Gloria explained.

“Finally you’re going to see exactly who we are,  not bits and pieces … It should be interesting, very entertaining,” Laura explained.

Details on what network the show will air on has not been confirmed.


Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”



It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
