Nicole Martin Defends Larsa Pippen; Says “There’s A Lot More To Larsa Than People Know Or Realize”

Real Housewives of Miami is back, baby! Season 4 of RHOM is airing on Peacock, and I am reminded of just how much I loved the franchise. I love the fun, the sun, and the tropical vibes. In 2013, the original series ended, although the reason wasn’t crystal clear. Andy Cohen hinted that it was the death of Mama Elsa, Marysol Patton’s beloved mother. He also pointed to a steep decline in ratings.

But the reboot is bringing it with a mix of new, and familiar, faces. Alexia Echevarria and Lisa Hochstein are back. So is Larsa Pippen. Larsa may not be a fan favorite, but she is certainly interesting. She was a one-and-done Housewife who appeared on Season 1.

Two former RHOM stars are also back in a part-time capacity-Marysol and Adriana de Moura. These ladies always bring the drama.

Then we have the newbies. Dr. Nicole Martin is a mother and an anesthesiologist. Guerdy Abraira is a luxury wedding planner for the stars. She even planned Alexia’s nuptials.

Julia Lemigova is married to tennis star Martina Navratilova. They are the first LGBTQ+ couple to appear fulltime on a Housewives franchise. Finally! Kiki Barth, who is a model, will also be on the series as a Friend of the Housewives.

The trailer for Season 4 of RHOM did not disappoint. Nicole was upset when her father arrived for a meeting, and he was intoxicated. Larsa claimed to make $10,000 a day with her OnlyFans account, which became a hot topic among the ladies.

Adriana slammed Larsa for her former friendship with Kim Kardashian. Larsa moved to Chicago after Season 1 with her then-husband Scottie Pippen and their kids. She later moved to Los Angeles after her divorce from Scottie, where she became Kim’s bestie. Larsa was exiled from the Kardashian fold after she and Kim ended their friendship.

“You left this group of women, come back with a butt as big as Kim Kardashian’s, trying to become the new Kim Kardashian, which you’re never going to be,” Adriana said of Larsa in the trailer. That was harsh.

Adriana really has issues with Larsa. Adriana explained, “[Larsa] came back, and I was trying to be open and supportive and welcome her back to the group and welcome her back to Miami. I was doing my best, but eventually, her attitude starts to get to me and rub me the wrong way.”

She continued, “I do explain my real take on that. I wasn’t buying it. I think there’s more to that story that revealed itself through the season, but I didn’t always think that that was a very genuine and opportunistic friendship,” Adriana added.

Larsa fired back at Adriana. “When you have nothing else going on, you’re going to sit there and you’re going to criticize the person that’s across from you that’s building an empire, that’s working on their family, and their friendship, and their growth,” Larsa stated. “Other people are just bored and pointing fingers.” Larsa also said Adriana is “definitely the weasel of the crew.”

Now one of the newbies is coming to Larsa’s defense. Nicole told HollywoodLife that there is “a lot more” to Larsa than meets the eye. Nicole remarked, “I had never met Larsa despite her living in Miami and me being in Miami. There’s certainly a lot of things circulating in the media. But as I am now learning that not everything you read is true,” she stated.

“There’s a lot of fictionalization and exaggeration out there. So, I think there’s a lot more to Larsa than people know or realize, and I think fans will get a really good look into her life during the season,” Nicole shared.
