‘Real Housewives of Miami’ Julia Lemigova Accuses Larsa Pippen of Betraying Guerdy Abraira
Julia Lemigova believes that Larsa Pippen betrayed Guerdy Abraira when she disclosed her friend’s cancer diagnosis to their Real Housewives of Miami co-stars after being specifically asked to keep the news to herself.
“Even though I speak five languages and sometimes I mix them up, ‘in confidence’ in English means in confidence,” Julia told Page Six.
The Russian model added — “And Larsa did not respect that. So, she made a mess, and it’s not OK.”
Viewers were shocked when Larsa, 49, openly shared about Guerdy’s breast cancer diagnosis with cast-mates, Marysol Patton, Lisa Hochstein, Alexia Nepola and Kiki Barth.
“Guerdy was very clear. She was very, very clear,” the 51-year-old pointed out.
Julia shared that she was “extremely disappointed” in Larsa after watching her lunch scene with Guerdy unfold.
Julia explained — “She said, ‘You’re the fourth person in the group who I told.’ She stole Guerdy’s moment to tell her friends, to tell the world. This is not OK.”
Guerdy had previously opened up about her breast cancer battle during an emotional dinner filmed with Julia, Adriana de Moura and Dr. Nicole Martin. She admitted that she was struggling to find the right moment to break the news to her cast mates.
Julia’s reaction to Larsa’s blunder partially stemmed from her own experience as wife to Martina Navratilova, who has battled breast cancer serval times. The 67-year-old tennis great was most recently hit with a double cancer diagnosis, Stage 1 throat and breast cancer, in late 2022. She announced that she had beaten both in March 2023.
“Martina, when she was diagnosed with cancer, very few people knew,” Julia shared. “The people she shared it with never betrayed her. I feel Larsa betrayed Guerdy.”
The Bravo star went on to compare Larsa to her pet goat, Elvis.
“She reminds me of my goat. She s–ts everywhere and then runs off as if it’s OK, right?” she declared “My goats are supposed to do that, but that’s not OK what Larsa does.”
Larsa took to social media last week to defend her actions.
“I called and texted Guerdy after she called me fake in the press. She never responded. We argued back and forth which wasn’t shown then she told me was diagnosed w/ breast [cancer]. I was shocked and I wanted to rally the girls to support her. I’ve been nothing but a good friend to her,” she wrote in a comment section under an Instagram video.
The Instagram user who posted the video noted that it was “effed up” of Larsa to take away Guerdy’s opportunity to handle the sensitive situation herself.
Guerdy and Larsa met up to discuss why the wedding planner had labeled the Only Fans personality the “fakest” Housewife, during a podcast appearance. Guerdy used the opportunity to open up to Larsa about her medical diagnosis.
“I haven’t told anybody except for now you, my family of course, and now you’re the fourth person in the group to know,” Guerdy said.
She also asked her friend to “take [the information] in confidence right now.”
Guerdy noted — “I just wanna make it clear, because I now have to tell the rest of the girls.”
Guerdy was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer in March, but happily announced that she was cancer free earlier this month, at BravoCon 2023.
