This week, social media erupted over a parenting choice Kandi Burruss made involving her 4-month-old son, Ace Wells Tucker.
When it comes to parenting, everyone has an opinion and they’re not afraid to voice their views on what parents should and should not do.
Kandi recently fell victim to such scrutiny when her husband Todd Tucker, posted a video showing a hands-free feeding method, involving the use of a pillow to hold their baby’s bottle in place.
The video below created a firestorm of commenters blasting the Real Housewives of Atlanta star for endangering her baby by potentially creating a choking hazard. Click on the Instagram video below to view Todd‘s post.
Surprisingly, controversial TV host Wendy Williams, came to Kandi‘s defense during a recent episode of The Wendy Williams Show.
“You do get tired when you feed a baby,” the talk show host said of her own experiences bottle feeding her now-teenaged son in response to Kandi and Todd‘s clip. “I remember having pillows stacked up so I don’t have to hold my arm like that because I’m not that strong. And also, a pillow over here that was stacked up. Sometimes, I’d be so comfortable, tired, being a mom — don’t call DYFS [Division of Youth and Family Service] — but I would fall asleep.”
Wendy extended her kindness to Ace’s parents by gifting them with a custom, blinged-out, hands-free baby bottle, “Happy baby to you all,” she said. “I’m not judging.” Watch Wendy’s segment on Kandi below.
Kandi responded to Wendy’s helping hand and gift, “Thanks @wendyshow for sticking up for us! & we’re gonna use that gift!” she wrote on Instagram.
