Singer and reality TV star Kandi Burruss (pictured left) just held an exclusive interview with BET and gave some telling information about discussions she has with her daughter Riley (pictured right).
Riley is 16-years-old and has made many headlines herself recently by the tremendous weight loss journey she has accomplished. According to Bravo TV, the teen lost a total of 52 pounds over the course of several months in 2018. Riley underwent a remarkable lifestyle transformation, which consisted of practicing cleaner eating habits and performing regular exercise.
Burruss, 42, was very proud of her daughter’s commendable progress and praised Riley on Instagram. “So proud of @rileyburruss and her journey, she made some fitness goals and conquered them and looks amazing!” she posted.
However, in the transcript of her recently published BET interview, Burruss gave details about the less comfortable conversations she has with her teenage daughter growing up among the spotlight in an industry loaded with the imagery of $exual innuendo.
Burruss was asked about her $exually explicit “dungeon parties” she holds and how she balances having such a provocative image with raising a young daughter. She gave the following statement:
“First of all, knows that her mom is crazy. Riley knows [my $ex dungeon parties are]a show. It’s a performance. She’s not allowed to come. She’s not invited. Only 21 and up. The thing about it is, I have an adult product line, so I have full conversations with my daughter about my business. I explain everything to her. Yeah, she knows it’s a very risque show, but she’s not sitting around judging her mom like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe you did this.’ She’s like, ‘Mom, that’s crazy.’ She knows it’s a business. We think about everything business-wise. It’s like, ‘OK, so the dungeon party does this and makes this much money.’ That’s how she thinks. She’s not really looking at it as ‘Oh my God, my mom has people walking around almost naked.’ She’s thinking, ‘She’s working.'”
