Pippa O’Connor has opened up about her marriage to Brian Ormond, and admitted that they definitely “clash” from time-to-time.

The couple, who tied the knot back in 2011, are parents to two children and also work together on her brand, POCO By Pippa.

Speaking to VIP Magazine about working with her hubby, Pippa said Brian has no patience “whatsoever” – which is a “good and bad” thing in her eyes.

“Good in work and just annoying in other aspects,” Pippa explained.


“Like if he asked me to ring someone, he just wouldn’t be able to comprehend why I didn’t do it there and then. I don’t think he’s trying to be annoying, he’d be just like, ‘Why didn’t you do it?’”

When asked why she wouldn’t have called the person immediately, Pippa said: “Probably because I know he expects me to! It’s kind of like when he’s telling me to go home from the party and I’m like, ‘Sorry!’”

“He’d be like, ‘I think we’ve all had enough to drink’ and I’d be like, ‘I have not!’. I’m going to get up on the table now and dance!”

When asked whether they fight a lot, the mum-of-two said: “Hmmm… Well the one good thing about us is, if we do, we don’t let it fester.”

“I don’t like over-nighters of not talking and he doesn’t either. We definitely clash but we don’t drag things out.”

As well as working with Brian, a lot of Pippa’s POCO team is made up of family and friends.

Pippa said: “It’s important to me to have people that are loyal. I like to keep things tight-knit, I like to keep things private. I need to trust everyone who’s in the camp.”
