Bravoleb Larsa Pippen is over the constant Kardashian digs from her RHOM costars and denies claims she rides the Kardashians’ coattails.
While Larsa Pippen admits that the accusations she rides on the Kardashians‘ coattails can be frustrating, she ultimately brushes them off as she knows how far she’s come without the help of her former uber-famous friends.
“If you know me, you know that for the last 10 years, I’ve been working on my brand and my superstar kids,” she explains. “That’s really where I’ve been. I haven’t been anywhere else or sucking up to anyone else. I’ve always lived in different states. Always had famous friends and always been working to grow and evolve.”
“And you weren’t there, darling. You were in L.A. for 10 years, kissing the Kardashians’ ass. So, shut up!” Adriana screamed, to which Larsa fired back, “You better sit the f— down.”
Larsa tells PEOPLE that Adriana can’t stop bringing up things from the past because she hasn’t changed at all since season one of RHOM back in 2011.
“Adriana is literally the same person she was 13 years ago,” Larsa claims, noting that she understands why Adriana can’t help but speak badly about her past with the Kardashians.
“She says that because she hasn’t evolved,” she explains. “I feel like for me, I’ve evolved and come so far from where I was 13 years ago. So I don’t really pay her or anyone who says that any attention because I feel like I’m really focused on the things that matter, the things that make a difference for me and the people around me.”
Larsa says she stands strong, knowing that she doesn’t “hide in anyone’s shadow” or “tie myself to anyone.” Instead, the RHOM star says she has always “stood on my own two feet.”
“I’m my own person. I feel like I’m good being alone,” she continues. “I’m good.”
Larsa’s friendship with the Kardashians fizzled in 2020, with the Bravo star admitting in a 2020 episode of RHOM that she doesn’t “even know what happened” but noted that she often found herself “stuck in the middle” of Kim Kardashian‘s drama with her now ex-husband, Kanye West.
“I was best friends with Kim, and I love her, and I love Kanye, and I just was the person that was stuck in the middle,” Larsa shared in her confessional at the time. “I took a beating because I was the friend that was basically there and saw everything. And that basically was the demise of our relationship. I knew too much, I was a problem, and so, whatever. That’s kind of what happened.”
