The former Scottie Pippen admits dating is hard because she compares new partners to Scottie
According to the Real Housewives of Miami star, none of her dates have compared to the legendary Scottie Pippen. As part of Melissa Gorga's On Display podcast, Larsa, 48, talked about her dating life and ex-boyfriend.
The thought of being married to a famous guy who was cute, had a good body, and was successful has kind of stuck in my head," she explained. The question is, "Where in the world will you find a guy who can fill in — it doesn't have to be all of those, just a few of them.
To be honest, I thought it would be easier." She continued, "It's hard." After first getting married in 1997, Larsa and Scottie divorced in December, three years after filing for divorce. They have four children - Scotty Jr., 21, Preston, 20, Justin, 17, and Sophia, 14. According to Larsa, she might have to lower her standards if she wants to achieve her relationship goals.
As soon as I started dating, I realized I wasn't going to get it all. I had a great relationship. I was married for 23 years." Although Larsa speaks highly of her former marriage to Gorga, 43, she's not always been kind to Scotti. In a February episode of RHOM, Larsa said Scottie acts as "The Punisher" when they disagree. "I was traumatized," Larsa alleged when Scottie said Larsa would have to send Sophia to Los Angeles against her wishes. "He's like The Punisher.
At the time of the divorce filing in 2016, Larsa's lawyer, Roberta G. Stanley, explained the recordings to PEOPLE, in which she reported Scottie being aggressive. According to Ms. Pippen, some members of the press acquired 911 recordings made by her recently. While these recordings speak for themselves, she did not make any allegations of physical abuse by Mr. Pippen. "Even though the Pippens have a public persona, their divorce is a private matter. He asks that the press respect his family's privacy during this time.
