The Best Quotes And Craziest Moments From The Basketball Wives L.A. Reunion: Part 2


We’ve come to the end. Basketball Wives L.A. is over, the second part of the reunion has wrapped, and while Laura apologized to Jackie, there was still a low simmer beneath all the girls whose beefs continued and seemed to go unresolved. And then just as the show was ending, a new beef between Laura and Draya began out of nowhere and left us feeling even more confused than ever. Who while this reunion may not have reunited all the women, it was still entertaining, and we chose our favorite moments to highlight below.

Who Should Not Return?

Last week’s reunion was a bit of a cliffhanger. Host John Salley asked the ladies to choose a cast member that they would not want to return for another season of the show, but before we could find out the ladies’ choices, we were abruptly cut off. This week though, we learned the results. Bambi obviously wants the Govans gone, Brooke and Laura want Bambi to leave, Gloria gave the boot to Malaysia (who, in turn chose Gloria), Draya wants Laura to leave, and most surprising, Jackie took herself off the show, saying “I just feel like they’d be happier if I wasn’t here. But I’m going to be here if there’s another season.” Read more…

Friend, Foe, Or Fake? See What The Basketball Wives L.A. Ladies Really Think Of Each Other In One Handy Chart

Friend Foe Or Fake Basketball WIves

CLICK TO ENLARGE

To hear the ladies of Basketball Wives L.A. talk about each other, you get the sense that some of them are playing each other and some of them have a false sense of friendship, while others are just sitting on a fence trying to decide which side to be on. Recently we asked the Wives to label their cast mates as a friend, foe, or fake, to see how they really feel about one another, and while some of the answers were predictable, others were surprising (Jackie still considers Gloria a friend, while Gloria has a less kind word for what she thinks Jackie is…). Click the link above to see how all the ladies really feel about each other.

The Reunion Interview: Malaysia Pargo Lets The Universe Work Things Out For Her

Malaysia Pargo Basketball Wives L.A. Reunion
Soft-spoken Basketball Wives L.A. star Malaysia Pargo really does come off as sweet as honey when you talk to her in person. During our recent chat at the season two reunion, she was every bit the calm, cool lady we’ve seen on the show this season, just trying to keep things copacetic among her co-stars. Surprisingly enough, despite the fact that she’s had words with some of the ladies on the show this season, she swears she only wishes them all well and has never tried to be fake or “funny” with any of them, not even Brooke during that odd phone conversation they had.

Read what Malaysia had to say about her current status with all the ladies, and just how hard it was to bring her real-life BFF, Bambi, into such a volatile situation. (Spoiler alert: she says it was one of the hardest things ever.)

There have been a lot of crazy casting rumors before this season even ended that some of you were leaving the show, how annoying is it to deal with stuff that can’t be verified or controlled?

Yeah, it’s annoying but rumors are gonna be rumors, and life wouldn’t be life without rumors. It’s fine. You can never get used to rumors, but what can you do?

This season you were really trying to be the mediator, but sometimes it didn’t really work out the way you planned.

I’m just naturally like that, I want everyone to get along and have a good time. I just thought most of our issues were weird and something that you could brush under the rug. I feel like if something’s not really serious or life threatening, if it’s something you can get over then yes, I will be the peacemaker. If it’s stuff you can’t get over, I’ll just give my opinion and leave it alone.
