Apparently I am not the only one who has noticed how smoking hot Kandi Burruss has been looking these days, since someone else tried to take credit for that post-baby body. In a story that weirdly involves Kandi‘s RHOA cast mate NeNe Leakes, there have been articles and advertisements circulating around the internet that claim that NeNe found out that Kandi has been taking diet pills to lose weight after the birth of her son Ace Tucker.
Not that I would ever think it’s okay to make up a rumor about a breast-feeding new mother taking diet pills, but I just don’t get what NeNe would ever have to do with this. It’s a weird mix between an advertisement and celebrity gossip that makes zero sense to me in addition to wreaking of desperation. Kandi got wind of these reports and really went in on her Instagram page.

Kandi has multiple reasons to be mad about these false reports, but most importantly, she does not want people to think that she would engage in behavior that would put her infant son’s health at risk. Kandi set the record state with a very detailed Instagram post.
“It’s crazy how people can just use your name for false advertisement. A few people asked me about a diet pill that they saw was advertised that had my name as a user. I have not used any diet pill to lose weight after my pregnancy. I’m still breastfeeding. I supplement with formula but I still breastfeed & there is no way I would take some Weightloss drug when it could affect my child. I’m only addressing this because I don’t want any other #breastfeeding mom to try it thinking it’s ok because they think I did it. Just to be clear if I try any Weightloss stuff in the future I will post it for you. If you don’t see it come from me then don’t believe the hype!”
I don’t blame Kandi for speaking out about this one. There are a lot of fans who look to Kandi as a role model and aside from that there are lots of people who are looking for quick ways to lose weight, so it really is not fair to mislead people into becoming customers. Plus, it would really be horrible if Kandi took diet supplements while she is nursing her son and that is definitely not something that she wants people to believe she condones.
I’m sure that people make up rumors about the women from Real Housewives every day and that they just brush them off most of the time, but I am happy that Kandi set the record straight and shut down this ridiculous story.
