We buy Star and Enquirer on the regular, and we’re glad that our girl “Rudy” has never shown up on their covers because of some dodgy Hollywood scandal.
Hey, thankfully, she’s survived the dreaded child star curse. Remember Keshia Knight Pulliam‘s sweet face as the youngest sibling on The Cosby Show? We do!
And even though she’s not popping out babies like Bey(once), we do keep up with her. Apparently, the latest news is that on her podcast, Kandidly Keshia, she chatted about her weird moment after giving birth to her daughter Ella Grace at an Atlanta hospital.
Not knowing who she was, an “old little white lady… about 70 years old” spoke with her about breastfeeding and how there were several state services available for low-income mothers.
Pulliam said, “I get it, it’s about showing the services that are offered, and I probably wouldn’t have been offended had she [listed] several of the services, [not just] WIC.” And she did respond to the woman, saying, “Ma’am, I have excellent insurance but thank you.”
The 37-year-old actress also said that even though it was part of her job, the hospital specialist never showed her how to physically breastfeed, claiming that “she didn’t want to touch my little brown boobie at all.”
We’re just DONE.
TELL US: Real talk. How would you respond if a hospital worker offered you a list of low-income, state-run services after you had a baby?
