Larsa Pippen, a cast member of “Real Housewives of Miami,” has called out her co-stars for their “fake tears” on camera during an interview on TheFantasyTimes’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast. During the interview, Pippen and her boyfriend, Marcus Jordan, promoted their new iHeart podcast, “Separation Anxiety,” and hinted at her fellow cast members’ insincerity.
When asked to name specific co-stars, Pippen coyly referred to “the person that’s calling me fake.” Two of the women in the “RHOM” cast, Dr. Nicole Martin and Guerdy Abraira, have previously labeled Pippen as the “fakest” member of the group.
Larsa Pippen shades ‘RHOM’ stars who ‘shed fake tears’ on TV
In a memorable scene from Season 5, Martin uninvited Pippen from her engagement party by sending a mirror inscribed with the question, “Mirror, mirror on the wall — who’s the fakest of them all?” After the scene aired, Martin’s close friend Abraira appeared at TheFantasyTimes’s Valentine’s Day-themed “Virtual Reali-Tea Live!” event in New York City and admitted that Pippen was the “fakest” star of “Miami.”
Despite Abraira’s comment, Pippen says she still has a soft spot for her and believes that the tension between the OGs (original cast members) and the newbies is natural. The current “Miami” cast is comprised of series OGs and newbies chosen for the reboot. Pippen acknowledges that Abraira’s recent cancer battle has created space for the women to move past any petty drama.
Pippen and Jordan promoted their new iHeart podcast, “Separation Anxiety,” during the interview. Pippen is currently filming “RHOM” Season 6 and hopes that Abraira’s cancer will go away.
Larsa Pippen wants her “Real Housewives of Miami” castmates to keep it, well, real.
In a new interview on TheFantasyTimes’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast, the Bravolebrity shades her fellow mojito holders for their “fake tears” on camera.
“I don’t shed fake tears like some of us,” Pippen quips in a joint chat with her boyfriend, Marcus Jordan, to promote their new iHeart podcast, “Separation Anxiety.”
Asked to name specific co-stars, the Larsa Marie jewelry designer coyly replies, “The person that’s calling me fake.”
Two women in the “RHOM” cast have notably branded Pippen the “fakest” individual in their group: Dr. Nicole Martin and Guerdy Abraira.
In a memorable scene from Season 5, Martin, 37, uninvited frenemy Pippen, 48, from her engagement party by sending a mirror inscribed with the question, “Mirror, mirror on the wall — who’s the fakest of them all?”
Weeks after the scene aired, Martin’s close pal Abraira, 45, appeared at TheFantasyTimes’s Valentine’s Day-themed “Virtual Reali-Tea Live!” event in New York City, where she was asked to name who she believed was the “fakest” star of “Miami.”
“Well, s–t. Yeah, it’s going to be Larsa,” the esteemed wedding planner admitted.
After catching wind of Abraira’s comment, Pippen clapped back on Twitter, writing, “Says the one that fakes the most tears.”
Despite the remark, Pippen says she still has a soft spot for Abraira — whether her waterworks are forced or not.
“I don’t know what that was about, honestly,” she tells us, reflecting on the “fakest” label. “Like, I’ve always been cool with Guerdy. We’ve never had any issues.”
Pippen, who starred on 2011’s “RHOM” Season 1 before the Bravo show was rebooted on Peacock a decade later, believes there is natural tension between the series’ OGs — herself, Alexia Nepola, Marysol Patton, Adriana de Moura and Lisa Hochstein — and newbies Abraira, Martin and Julia Lemigova.

“I just feel like sometimes the new girls seem to think that the OGs are not really as … open as they want us to be. But I’m like, ‘The phone works both ways. You can call me, too,’” she explains.
“So I feel like a lot of times the newbies are kind of frustrated because the OGs, we’ve had this long relationship,” the reality star elaborates. “And this experience that we’ve had, it was literally 13 years ago I was on ‘Housewives’ with these girls … So sometimes I think they tend to forget that.”
Pippen acknowledges that Abraira’s recent cancer battle, however, has created space for the women to move past any petty drama.
“I feel like women, we get into these disagreements, and they’re honestly over the dumbest things. And so when something big like this happens, it really puts everything into perspective,” she tells TheFantasyTimes.
“We don’t care. We forget about all our little spats, and we want to make sure that the other person’s good.”
Abraira was diagnosed with breast cancer in March. In a May Instagram post, she shared that she was on vacation in St. Barts “having the time of [her] life” when her doctor called her with the results of a routine mammogram.
“I have breast cancer,” she wrote at the time. “It took me a while to process it all and this is why I took a break from social media last month as many noticed.”
On June 1, Abraira revealed that she underwent surgery to remove the cancer in an optimistic social media message to fans.
“THANK YOU to every single person for your words of support 🏾🙏🏾 you guys are my GUERDIANS,” she wrote in part.
“All your prayers definitely got me through my surgery! The fight is not over as you know but just the beginning…but getting the surgery to remove the cancer at least was an emotional ‘win’ for sure.”
Pippen — who is currently filming “RHOM” Season 6 — says on “Virtual Reali-Tea” that Abraira “feels good” today.
“I know she’s frustrated … dealing with cancer,” she tells us.
“But I feel like she’s in a good place. She has a great support system. All of us are here for her. We love her. I’m hoping she’s going to handle it and it’s going to go away.”
