Kandi Burruss has been giving mothers everywhere snap back envy with her post-baby body. Just two months after giving birth to her son Ace Wells Tucker, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is already back to her pre-baby weight. So what’s her secret? Burruss posted on her Instagram a few weeks ago that breastfeeding was key. “I’m smaller now than I was before getting preggers,” she wrote. “That’s what breastfeeding can do for ya.”

HipHollywood caught up with the new mommy at the screening for Kelly Rowland’s new BET series Chasing Destiny, to the find out what else she did to get so slim and trim.

“For that first month and a half I strictly breastfed and I only drank water,” explained the 39 year old mother of two.  “I didn’t drink any juice, no soda’s or anything and no desserts and that was it. But I didn’t gain a lot of weight during my pregnancy either.”

Rowland, who had her son Titan in November of 2014, also shared how she dropped the weight, but joked that she didn’t get it off as fast as Kandi.

“I just snapped back!” said Rowland about her year long journey. “I lost 50 pounds but I worked my butt off. I wasn’t as lucky as this two month situation over here.”

    Breastfeeding helped me lose the pregnancy weight. After getting pregnant (thru conceiveeasy), I only gained about 26 lbs and lost most of it without exercise.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
