Reality star Larsa Pippen isn’t holding back on details about her dating life.
In a recent podcast interview with Melissa Gorga for the “On Display” podcast, the “Real Housewives Of Miami” star shared that she found the dating scene more difficult than she thought it’d be.
She hasn’t found a partner who ticks all the boxes like her ex, Scottie Pippen, did.
The duo, who got married in 1997, finalized their divorce in December 2021–three years after filing for separation. They share four children; 21-year-old Scotty, 20-year-old Preston, 17-year-old Justin, and 14-year-old Sophia.

Larsa Pippen Thought Dating ‘Would Be Easier’
Larsa is giving an update on her dating life since her split from her ex-husband, Scott. In a podcast with Melissa Gorga for her “On Display” podcast, the “Real Housewives Of Miami” star confessed that it hasn’t been easy to move on following the end of her 21-year marriage.
“I feel like I am kind of mentally in a place of, like, I was married to a really famous guy that was cute, that had a good body that was really successful that gave me four gorgeous kids,” she said on the podcast, per People.
“So, where the hell are you gonna find a guy that can like, fill in — it doesn’t have to be all of those, but like, a few of those boxes. “It’s kind of hard,” she continued. “I thought it would be easier, to be honest with you.”
She Called Her Ex-Husband, Scottie Pippen, ‘The Punisher’
While she’s always filled with glowing words for her former marriage, one can’t say the same about the relationship she had between herself and her ex-husband.
In a past episode of “RHOM,” Larsa shared that while they were still together, her ex-husband acted as “The Punisher” anytime they disagreed. She recalled a time when he had to send her to Los Angeles against her will following a disagreement.
“I was traumatized,” Larsa confessed. “If he doesn’t get his way, he punishes me. He’s like The Punisher.”
After realizing that she might not get all her boxes ticked, the star shared that she might have to lower her standards for future relationships. “As soon as I started dating, I thought — I have to come to the realization that I’m not going to get everything. I had a great run. I had a great relationship. You know, I’ve been married 23 years.”
Larsa Pippen Feels Like She’s Happier Living Alone
Following a question asked by Gorga on the podcast, Larsa shared that she’d rather be single than live unhappily.” I feel like for me I’m happier alone,” Larsa confessed. “It’s kind of messed up, but I am. I’m happier alone.”
She also confessed that relationships could be great, but they are hard work, and she’s not in a rush to jump right back into another one. “My whole adult life, I was chasing after a man, do you know what I mean? After years of caring for someone else, I can just be comfortable.”
The reality star has previously spoken about her single life and moving on from her previous relationship on the season four premiere of “Real Housewives of Miami.” “I put so much into my marriage, but it just wouldn’t get better,” she shared via People.
She Fell Out With Kim Kardashian
The star isn’t a stranger to splits. In 2020, Larsa fell out with SKIMS founder Kim Kardashian after she talked about the family on the Hollywood Raw podcast. She accused Kanye West of pitting her against the beauty mogul.
“I feel like Kanye was in a place where he really didn’t trust anyone with Kim, and I feel like he was like ‘don’t be so close to her because I was close to her. I feel like that had something to do with it,” she shared on the podcast.
Following her big reveal, a source close to the Kardashians revealed that they were disappointed and angry at Larsa for sharing that on the podcast and weren’t going to be “friends with her again.”
“Larsa and Kim Kardashian especially were extremely close, so it’s sad a friend would do this to a friend,” the source stated, per Hollywood Life.
The pair seem to have patched things up in private if their recent social media interactions are anything to go by. Kim recently left a congratulatory message on Larsa’s Instagram post about her son, Scotty Pippen Jr. joining the Lakers team.
