‘Thought They Weren’t Friends Anymore’: Fans Melt Over Malaysia Pargo’s Birthday Message to Former ‘BBW’ Star Brandi Maxiell

Brandi Maxiell, a former cast member of “Basketball Wives,” turned 37 on Thursday, May 21. In honor of Maxiell’s life anniversary, Malaysia Pargo sent the birthday girl a special message on Instagram. From season 3 to season 6, fans raved over the dynamic duo’s close friendship. Maxiell left the hit reality show shortly after her feud with the series’ showrunner, Shaunie O’Neal, which led some fans to believe that Maxiell and Pargo were no longer friends after her departure.

Pargo created an Instagram thread that showed photos of Maxiell, with one striking shot depicting the Texas native posing in profile in a denim jacket, black leggings, and red ankle boots. Pargo captioned her post: “Another birthday means your life journey is incomplete, may your path be paved with success and guided by love.@brandimaxiell Happy Birthday Love you 😘.”

Rumors swirled that the pair ended their friendship after DJ Duffey, Maxiell’s childhood friend, joined the cast in season 5. Episode 2 of that season saw Maxiell throw Duffey, a Texas native, a “Welcome to LA” party to mark her arrival. Pargo attended the bash but left not long after arriving because she was upset that their cast mate Angel Brinks came to the event. Maxiell asked Pargo to stay, but Pargo told Maxiell that her scene was boring. Pargo admitted at the end of the episode that she was just having a bad night.

Maxiell returned to the show for her final season in 2017. In a 2017 interview with Hollywoood Life, she said, “Me and Malaysia, we’re best friends. We ride or die for each other, and we’re probably one of the realest friends on the show. It’s quite natural, we have each other’s back.”
