Drew Sidora is making the press rounds now that she’s Atlanta’s newest ‘Housewife.’
While appearing on co-star Kandi Burruss’ YouTube series, ‘Speak on It,’ the newest ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star opened up about a time Nicki Minaj criticized her post-pregnancy body.
The comments came during an audition for an ABC Family sitcom based on Nicki’s childhood.
Sidora first recalled having previously been told, “Girl, you don’t look how you looked in TLC,” referring to her 2013 role as TLC’s T-Boz in the TV movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story.
The reality star, 35, then shared that Minaj was one of the people to make a comment about her weight during an in-person audition.
“So, I was up for an ABC family series, a Nicki Minaj pilot. And Nicki herself said that. She said I don’t look how I looked when I played T-Boz,” Sidora claimed. “I was like, ‘Nicki!’ It was like, all these ABC execs around but I had gone through about five rounds. And she really, really liked me.”
“And then she said that in front of all of these [executives],” she continued. “It is was it is. I was like, ‘Look, I just had a baby.’ I think at the time my baby was like 3 months old, I was literally still breastfeeding.”
Sidora went on to share that she took Minaj’s remarks as “constructive criticism” and “advice” to begin her weight loss journey.
“What I took away was, ‘Girl, get your life together. Get back in the gym. You can’t keep blaming it on the baby and get to work,’ ” she told Burruss. “Like, yes, I had a baby, let’s not body shame, but it did give me that motivation. So I turned it into lemonade like let’s get in the gym and really get my career back. So, I’ve been on a journey of weight loss and just getting back to good health.”
A representative for Minaj did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment on Sidora’s claims.
Now that Nicki’s a new mother herself, maybe she’ll be a little easier on the next woman on her journey of post-pregnancy weight loss.
