Lea Black was an integral part of The Real Housewives of Miami during its original run, so we’ve been patiently waiting for her to share her unfiltered opinion about all-things season 4. Thankfully, she squeezed some time in between planning charity galas and running her skincare empire to make an appearance on Behind The Velvet Rope With David Yontef. On the podcast, the “Mayor of Miami” didn’t hesitate to share her feelings about the Peacock reboot and its current lineup of Housewives. And when discussing Larsa Pippen’s presence on the show, Lea didn’t seem too impressed.
As Radar Online reported, Lea explained on the podcast that she’s never known Larsa to “really put herself out there.” As a result, Lea isn’t confident that Larsa will deliver anything substantial during her second stint as a Real Housewife.
So far, on the reboot, Larsa hasn’t been a major player in any of the action. We’ve seen her talk about selling her house, and we’ve seen her give Adriana de Moura a crash course on how to make a killing on Only Fans. Meanwhile, in the same number of episodes, Alexia Echevarria has dealt with at least three different family crises, all while planning a wedding. So, Lea’s assertion about Larsa might not be too far off.
Lea also pointed out that Larsa doesn’t show off genuine parts of her life. Of course, we all know that’s a critical element to being an entertaining Housewife. However, Lea doesn’t think we should get her hopes up with Larsa. She explained, “I’ve never seen her crying or complain[ing] or whining about her personal life. I’ve never seen any of that with her, so I wouldn’t expect it.” She continued, “[She] has a very see-and-be-seen superficial kind of life.”
In Lea’s opinion, that superficial, “see-and-be-seen” lifestyle is what helped land her a spot on the reboot. After all, Larsa became a tabloid staple in the last couple of years, amassing a hefty Instagram following thanks to her estranged relationship with the Kardashians. According to Lea, Larsa believes that the Kardashian connections and flashy lifestyle got her back on the show. But, is that enough to sustain the audience’s interest?
“I do think she kind of thinks that. Based on my conversations with her, I think she kind of thinks that,” Lea said. “And that’s not an insult to her! I think that’s going to be a very short-lived interest in people. Now, if she can get past that … great. But if it’s the bait-and-switch, then no, no. … That’s not sustainable. … It’s a buzz, and it’s over.”
Lea’s observations about Larsa might seem a little bit shady. However, during the interview, she reiterated that she does maintain a relationship with her fellow RHOM OG. She’s one of the few cast members that Lea does stay in contact with, but it definitely doesn’t sound like she’ll be making an appearance as a “friend of” anytime soon.
