Rihanna’s pregnancy style is unlike any other, but that doesn’t mean the mogul is planning on creating a brand new parenting style when her bundle of joy finally arrives. Instead, she’s going to be taking cues from some of the most famous mothers in America: the Real Housewives.
Rihanna has never been shy about sharing her status as a Bravo devotee. She’s a ride-or-die Housewives fan — she’s not afraid to insert herself into Real Housewives of New York drama and she even hinted she’d be open to hosting a reunion one day — so it only makes sense that she’d turn to Bravolebrities for some parenting tips. “Heather Dubrow is so chic while being a mom,” she told Elle.com at a Fenty Beauty at Ulta launch party. “Just love the way that she just allows her kids to be who they are. And that’s really inspiring to me.” Heather might be her model for giving her kids freedom, but when it comes to her protective instincts, Rihanna said she’s ready to get in touch with her inner Teresa Giudice. “Teresa from Jersey does not play about her kids,” she said. “She will flatten you about those kids. And that resonates with me a lot because I feel like that’s the type of mom I’m going to be. Psycho about it.” Asked if she saw herself flipping tables — Teresa’s signature move — Rihanna warned that she’d do worse. “You talk about my kids, it’s over.”
If Rihanna’s reaction to being asked her baby’s gender is any indication, I have no doubt that she’ll be ready to flip a table or two should the need arise.
