Scottie Pippen is getting a reality show.

Few things that are very wrong with this.

1. The name of the show is "Big Pippen." This is not a joke, the name of the show is a pun (and a terrible at that).
Big Pippen, from Left Right Productions, revolves around Chicago power couple Larsa and Scottie Pippen. From private jets to designer digs, diamond rings and six NBA championships, the Pippens live a truly charmed life. Add in her overbearing family and his clan from Arkansas, and this duo is living life Big Pippen style.
2.  If this is Scottie Pippen's way of getting the attention he sought after in the Bulls day, he is doing it all wrong. Not to mention that reality shows never make you like a person more than you already do. The only right way to do it was when he was still playing because it would actually be interesting.

3. The show is intended for women (Not to bash the ladies). So there will probably be no talk of the glory days. I guess a rich married couple cuddling is great entertainment.
WE tv is appealing to its core female audience's interest in dating, shoes and religion with an ambitious slate of seven unscripted series vying for a place on its 2013-14 schedule.
If anything, there is one compelling reason to watch this show. Remember the supposed dance off Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan had at his 47th birthday. Yea, unless they show us the footage, this show won't go for 6 emmys or any kind of three peat.
