It’s no secret that Rihanna is a Real Housewives fan — she even accidentally finds herself involved in the drama we see on-screen. And now that she’s ready for motherhood, she’s looking to emulate a certain protective Housewife.
In a recent interview with Elle.com, Rihanna revealed the Bravo star that will inspire her mothering style most.
…none other than the Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Teresa Giudice!

Fans of the show will know that Teresa is all about family, often sounding a bit like Michael Corleone in The Godfather when she speaks about it. In Teresa’s world, you never go against the family, you always take their side and you’re there when they need you. Don’t mess with Teresa’s family unless you want to face her wrath.

Rihanna explained her choice in the interview, saying “Teresa from Jersey does not play about her kids.”
“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,” she added.
To that, the interviewer joked about whether she’d use Teresa’s signature move and flip a table for her kids. “Worse. You talk about my kids, it’s over,” the beauty mogul said.
Rihanna also opened up about some of the advice she’s getting about being a mom right now, saying that she’s gotten, “[a] lot of advice. Probably the best advice is to sleep now because I won’t get much later. I need to work on that before it’s a thing of the past.”
Being a fierce mommy like Teresa Giudice makes so much sense for the rebellious pop star. No matter who she draws inspiration from, we’re sure Rihanna will rock it as a mother.
