Larsa Pippen is defending her hairstyle choices.
While on a trip to the Bahamas for season five of The Real Housewives of Miami, the 48-year-old reality star decided to wear her hair in box braids.
Some fans took issue with this, accusing Larsa of cultural appropriation.
During the season five reunion, host Andy Cohen shared a question from a fan who said, “Watching the tease for the season, I noticed you were sporting braids in the Bahamas. Fashion-wise, you can pull it off. But do you think it’s really culturally appropriate? I think you’re going to get a lot of backlash.”

Larsa responded, “I mean, I’m not White. So I don’t know, my mom used to wear braids…My grandparents are Moroccan. My mom had braids when she was a kid. I’ve been braiding my hair every time I’ve gone on vacation since I can remember.”
Co-star Kiki Barth, who is Haitian, defended Larsa, saying, “I feel like anybody should rock whatever they want to. As long as it looks good on you, I think we should just embrace it.”
If you missed it, Andy recently explained why he screamed at Larsa during the reunion.
