Real Housewives of Miami is officially back on the Bravo map. Season 5 came in hotter than Dade County in the middle of July and we love to see it. There are no shy ladies in this cast and Andy Cohen is thanking his lucky stars every single night RHOM was given a second chance.
The Season 5 reunion was not one Andy or the RHOM ensemble will likely forget soon. The sheer audacity was front and center and so was Larsa Pippen’s mouth. After not getting along with Dr. Nicole Martin for the majority of their Relationship, Larsa tried really, really hard to serve up some insults during the heated couch time.
At one point Larsa attempted to tell Nicole she doesn’t have a real job because she “puts people to sleep.” She must have forgotten that she was also “put to sleep” when absolutely not getting any plastic surgery. That said, Larsa thinks writing DMs that say, “Hey baby, why haven’t you opened the pic I sent” qualifies as valid employment.
Larsa also tried to clock Nicole for having a child out of wedlock, which was an enormous fail on her part. Not only did it manage to upset most of the people who have kids without being married, it pissed Big Daddy Andy off but good.
He went off on Larsa after her comment. Page Six explained why he was so upset. Andy spoke on raising his voice during Monday’s Radio Andy. While he doesn’t like to “editorialize” Housewives during reunions, he felt kinda stabby when Larsa “seemed to be weaponizing” kids of unmarried parents.
Andy said, “Like, she was saying, ‘I could be calling out that your son was born out of wedlock.’” Which was a stupid argument to begin with, but, you know Larsa. “Now, when you say, ‘I could be using something as a weapon,’ you’re basically doing it,” he added.
Larsa’s comment stung Andy because he, along with millions of other people, is an unmarried dad of two. He continued, “Nicole kept saying, ‘You called my son a bastard, and [Larsa] said, ‘I didn’t — I just said he was born out of wedlock.’” That’s when Big Daddy stepped in.
“It will come as no surprise to anyone why I got so heated. I’m a single dad of two children, so there is no other person; there is no other parent,” he said. “I got super sensitive to the idea of that being weaponized, and that’s why I jumped in there.”
Even though Andy verbally swatted Larsa, he did issue a public apology right after it happened. Because he couldn’t spill deets about the taping in progress, it was a bit ambiguous at the time. “We’re still shooting, and I didn’t have ‘screaming at Larsa’ on my bingo card today,” he said back in January.
I guess Larsa thinks it’s cool to go after a parent via the children. Does this render Marcus Jordan free to be weaponized due to the unconventional nature of their relationship? We’ll find out because he just might show up for RHOM Season 6.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK LARSA WENT TOO FAR WITH THE “BORN OUT OF WEDLOCK” COMMENT? WOULD YOU MISS LARSA IF SHE LEFT RHOM? WERE YOU GLAD TO SEE ANDY CHECK LARSA AFTER HER COMMENT?
