The blogosphere has been reporting that “The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s” Kandi Burruss is pregnant. Although her rep released a statement yesterday denying it, Burruss spoke to ESSENCE.com exclusively about the pregnancy rumors.
“That is such bull! Do people get up every morning and just decide to make up stories and lies? I’m like, Did I gain weight to make people think that? I don’t understand it,” Burruss told ESSENCE.com. “It’s just hilarious how people will believe everything they read. Someone called me the other day and I didn’t give any more thought to the rumor because I’m like who would believe that, especially if the news didn’t come directly from me? So for the record, I am not pregnant with A.J.’s child. I’m not pregnant with anybody’s child.”
On Thursday, October 29, the Grammy-winning singer and songwriter will appear on part one of a two-part reunion show for “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” To commemorate the occasion, Burruss will release an EP of five songs from her upcoming album, B.L.O.G. (B—– Love Online Gossip), which will include songs that played throughout the second season of the show including “Fly Above” as well as a couple of additional tunes.
“Since I’m pushing my album back indefinitely, I just wanted to give my fans a small token of appreciation and something to enjoy until the album drops,” Burruss told ESSENCE.com. “I hope they enjoy it because I appreciate the support and love they’ve shown me throughout the years and when I was going through a rough time.”
Burruss, whose fiance was killed during a street brawl, recently opened the doors of her ATL boutique TAGS and plans to have a grand opening and ribbon cutting party in November.
