Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards commented on rumors about her performance while taping a January 2023 episode of the Two Ts In A Pod podcast hosted by former castmate Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Real Housewives of Orange County ‘ star was moderated by Tamra judges.
Richards explained she shared pictures with her Instagram followers that showed she had recently lost weight. She noted that numerous social media users claimed that she took Ozempic to change her physique. According to the company’s website, the prescription drug “along with diet and exercise lowers blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes.” The “Halloween” actress claimed she “never took Ozempic.” She also noted that some RHOBH fans have accused her of undergoing an abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, to achieve her toned midsection.
“I haven’t had a tummy tuck,” said the reality TV personality.
The RHOBH star clarified that she had a breast reduction in 2022. She also revealed that she was interested in a tummy tuck.
“I wanted a tummy tuck because of four babies’ skin, the excess skin, because no matter how much you exercise, you know you’re always going to have that skin unless it’s removed,” Richards said.
The mother of four then attributed her weight loss to dieting and regular exercise since July 2022. She also stated that she hadn’t had any alcohol in six months.
“When we’re filming we drink a lot more than normal because we go to these events and it’s stressful and in my day to day life of course I don’t drink at home you know it’s very different but I would go to dinner and a I’d have a few glasses of wine and I’d come home and I’d see brownies and cookies on the kitchen counter that my kids were making and I’d eat them, I’d put them in my mouth,” the Bravo personality explained.
The 54-year-old also shared that she rejects people who don’t believe she’s managed to lose weight without cosmetic procedures.
“Honestly, I’ve never felt better in my entire life, and I’ve worked my ass off, and I really get annoyed when people think I’m just paying to get it done,” Richards said.
During a December 2022 appearance on Carlos King’s Reality With The King podcast, Richard’s husband, Mauricio Umansky, shared that she’s been working out diligently since RHOBH Season 12 wrapped filming. He explained that she “walks a lot [and] to get in shape.”
“I’m telling you, when you see her, you’ve never seen a better, sexier Kyle than in the next season of [RHOBH]. I mean, she’s just recovered – she’s just been training every day, she’s in such good shape and mentally she’s getting a lot better,” Umansky said.
People magazine reported that Richards took to Instagram to upload a picture of her wearing a two-piece swimsuit. In the comments section of the Jan. 24 post, the RHOBH personality shared an inside look at her food intake and exercise routine. She claimed that she didn’t eat “alcohol, bread, pasta, [and] Sugar.” Instead, “she eats[s] protein, fruits and vegetables.”
“Now that I’m at the weight I want to be, I’ll eat a small amount of pasta etc. every once in a while. But no alcohol since July 15th. I train every day. Chasing between running, biking, hiking and yoga. Weights and abs every day,” Richards wrote.
