Bravo has announced that it has just finished shooting “The Real Housewives of Miami.” Joining the cast will be Scottie Pippen’s wife Larsa.The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that the Chicago Bulls Hall of Famer is upset his wife will be on the new series of the controversial franchise. In Larsa’s defense, the series wasn’t originally shot as a “Real Housewives” show but rather for a new reality series “Miami Social Club.” In mid-production producers decided to cash in on the Bravo franchise with “The Real Housewives of Miami” series.
This past summer, Pippen returned to the Bulls, where he played the majority of his NBA career as a team ambassador. Pippen also has a home in Miami, and according to the Investopedia, Pippen has lost more than $120 million dollars because of bad investments… maybe Larsa can team up with Teresa Giudice from Real Housewives New Jersey.
Scottie Maurice Pippen (born September 25, 1965) is a retired American professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball Association (NBA). He is most remembered for his time with the Chicago Bulls, with whom he was instrumental to six NBA Championships and their record 1995—96 season of 72 wins. Pippen, along with Michael Jordan, played an important role in transforming the Bulls team into a vehicle for popularizing the NBA around the world during the 1990s.
Pippen was named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team eight times (all consecutive) and the All-NBA First Team three times. He was a seven-time NBA All Star and was the NBA All-Star Game MVP in 1994. He was named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History during the 1996–97 season, and is one of four players to have his jersey retired by the Chicago Bulls (the others being Jerry Sloan, Bob Love, and Michael Jordan). During his seventeen-year career, he played twelve seasons with the Chicago Bulls, one with the Houston Rockets and four with the Portland Trail Blazers, making the postseason sixteen straight times. He is third on the list of most postseason games played, behind Robert Horry and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Pippen is also the only person to have twice won both an NBA championship and an Olympic gold medal in the same year. Pippen was elected into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010, and was formally inducted on August 13th.
