In a recent interview with Rolling Out, Basketball Wives LA’s Malaysia Pargo opens up about co-parenting after her divorce, how life has changed since she’s become a reality TV star and advice for women who date celebrities. Check out a few excerpts.
Motherhood is great. It’s the best and greatest thing that’s ever happened to me. My kids are amazing. They all just had birthdays. My twins just turned 5. Then, my son Little J just had his 9th birthday. We’re celebrating birthdays. I’m stumbling over toys at this point. We’re all great!
Why co-parenting is important:
Co-parenting is the most important thing because, first off, you broke a home, and kids realize it, especially when they’re of age. Like my kids, say for my 9-year-old, all he remembers is mom and dad together. Then once you get into school, you see other kids and they have their mom and their dad. You want to make sure they don’t feel like they’re missing anything. As of right now, my ex is actually here with us now.
We co-parent well. We can stay in the same household. He makes sure that when he has a break that he comes in and helps me out with the things I normally do on my own and it’s great! My kids are soaking it up, and they love it! He takes Little J to soccer when he can so that his friends, not to say “show and tell,” but his friends can see that he has a father, as well. It’s great for my kids. It feels good to me that my kids are smiling and they’re happy and they get to see us both in the same environment. We get to go out to eat together. We can do birthday parties together and stuff like that.
