"I totally can have the 'in' because I would immediately befriend Larsa Pippen," she responded, claiming Pippen is interested in becoming a Housewife if the opportunity presents itself. "Sign up Larsa Pippen, I've got the word on the inside that she wants to be a part. Sign up Mrs. Phil Collins, the ex who's married to the young man."
