Scottie and Larsa Pippen may be living in luxury but they are far from being removed from family and community. Although their reality show depicts them as the wealthy couple living the American Dream, there is more substance to this power couple who parent four kids in all.
The Pippen household begins tasks at 5am with Scottie on his daily workout. As the Chicago ‘Bulls’ Ambassador explains, “I’m up at 5am, go work out, and come back to make breakfast and get the kids ready for school.”
After making breakfast and sending the kids off, Scottie and Larsa get to their daily activities of serving as Ambassador for the ‘Bulls’ and giving back to the community. While her husband serves as the face of the team he once played for, Larsa is focused on raising funds and spreading awareness about the Bright Pink Foundation that aims to teach young women about healthy living. “I want to teach girls to listen to their bodies and be proactive about wellness,” says Larsa who practices good dieting and exercise herself.
Scottie and Larsa’s day ends with the family gathered around the indoor basketball court. “I like to mess around with my kids,” says Pippen. Although the wealthy bunch, Scottie and Larsa hold fast to family values and contribute to their community on a regular basis. They are not just “Big Pippen.”
