Kandi Burruss’ daughter Riley is setting the record straight about pregnancy rumors and Kandi herself has something to say. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is speaking out after speculation about her oldest child possibly being pregnant surfaced. Her daughter Riley has been open with the public about her weight loss journey, and she appears to be content with where she is now. Kandi wants the social media commentary to stop, and Riley is also adding in her two cents.
“I despise it. It bothers me so much,” Kandi said of having to witness her daughter deal with the public’s opinion on her body in an interview with People. “Everybody already knows that Riley dealt with her weight issues growing up in the public eye. People would make comments on her body and say things about her personal look and it really boils my blood.”
Kandi notes that she personally “can deal with anything” but would never want her kids to be “bullied online.”
The singer added:
“The people who watch our show and who are on our show, sometimes they take things too far, and it’s not cool. It’s crazy. This is a TV show at the end of the day.”
"Words definitely matter," she says. "I've seen one of my kids definitely get bullied multiple times."
On rumors that Riley was pregnant, Kandi said Riley felt a way about it.
“Somebody was posting that [Riley] was pregnant, and she was so upset about it,” Kandi admits. “She was like, ‘Where are they getting this information from? Here I was feeling good about myself and losing and getting my body where I want it to be, and now they’re posting that I’m pregnant?’ That’s crazy!”

“Me after seeing everyone ask if I’m pregnant,” she wrote on the social media post that’s been viewed over 136K times.
