'So proud,' Kandi Burruss shares picture of daughter Riley following her weight loss journey

Kandi Burruss, best known for “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” took to Instagram to congratulate her 16-year-old daughter on her amazing weight-loss journey.

The post compared two photos of Riley. The first one portrayed her wearing black leggings and a pink top while the second one showed the girl in a bright pink skirt and a pale pink shirt.

The difference was obvious. Not only Riley looked skinnier but also healthier and more comfortable with her body. For the caption, Kandi admitted to being proud of her daughter for making (and conquering) fitness goals.

Riley uploaded the same photo with the caption, “still working & trying to improve w @iamthekingoffitness ?? but look at this transformation.” As soon as the “RHOA” star uploaded that photo, her followers took to the comment section to share their thoughts.

“Kandi she has always been cute but now she is absolutely gorgeous and I know that you're proud of her she looks amazing tell her to keep up the good work and to stay focus in those books because the boys going to be after her,” [sic] pointed out a follower.

“You go girl!!! So beautiful and determined,” added a second user.


One of the previous times that Kandi uploaded a post addressing Riley’s weight-loss journey was quite surprising, too. Apart from comparing the photos, she also specified how many pounds she had shed: 52.

I’m so proud of my baby @rileyburruss! Last year (around September I think) Riley decided to get serious about being fit. With the help of her trainer @iamthekingoffitness she’s lost 52lbs!!!! & she did it the right way by working out 5 days a week & watching her calorie intake. Shout out to her friends @olivervett & @jake.vett who worked out with her & helped her to stick to it. They also lost between 40-50lbs. Y’all just don’t understand how hard it is to grow up in front of the public eye & in front of social media trolls who make negative comments about kids weight. Luckily Riley has tough skin & doesn’t let it bother her but as her mom it used to piss me off when trolls would make negative comments about her size. Nobody knew she was over 200lbs because my daughter is tall. She’s 5’9. & to be honest she wouldn’t tell anybody how much she weighed but now she proudly shares it because she wants to motivate other people who are going thru the Weightloss struggle. Riley is still working out 5 days a week. I’m so proud of her dedication. Now she doesn’t need help to stick to it because she’s got that self discipline that I don’t even have... Riley wants to help other young people get fit & help them thru the challenges she faced. Stay tuned to what my young boss has coming next! #ProudMom ❤️❤️❤️

Even though the 16-year-old lady has kept following her plan to lose more weight, neither she nor Kandi has stated how many pounds she has lost after the previously mentioned post.


At the moment, Kandi has been focused on “Celebrity Big Brother,” a TV show in which a group of celebrities lives in the same house during constant surveillance with no contact from the outside world.

One of the celebrities who is with Kandi in the show is Tamar Braxton, who pointed out that she would vote Kandi off the show because of her attitude.


“She’s fake,” Tamar said of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star. “She came in here complaining about the workload or whatever. And I’m like, ‘ain’t this the same thing you do for ‘Housewives?’ … She was like, ‘for some reason, everybody wants me to go to the events.'”

Tamar told Kandi that she should be glad that the show wanted to send her to places as it meant that she was relevant, but Kandi didn’t seem to make the connection between relevancy and success.

“[Voting her off] is the best for my game it’s best for my image, it’s best for my life, I’m not having fun, this is not cool,” Tamar concluded.
