Melissa Gorga was convinced Kyle Richards was using the diabetes medication Ozempic to lose weight after the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member, 54, debuted her new, very fit body on Instagram earlier this month.

While appearing on Jeff Lewis‘ SiriusXM radio show this week, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 43, spoke of her assumption as Jeff admitted to having remaining doubts about Kyle’s diet claims. Plus, Jackie Goldschneider called out the dangers of the drug.

“I’m not gonna lie, when I first saw her, I was like, ‘Ooh she’s taking that stuff,’” Melissa admitted on the January 26 episode of Jeff Lewis Live, via Page Six. “And then, when she [denied it], I’m like, ‘Oh OK maybe not.’ You know, I don’t know. I didn’t even text her and ask her.”

But despite Kyle’s denial, Jeff, 52, remained skeptical.

“I think what she did is probably went off of it to be like, ‘I’m not on it!’ So, she’s not technically lying,” he said, noting that he doesn’t think Kyle simply eliminated carbs, alcohol, and sugar from her diet.

“I love her, but it’s not just not drinking since July – I mean, come on,” he continued, adding that he is open to taking medication for weight loss and already found a $1,300 option to lose “10, 12, 14 pounds.”

Meanwhile, after saying the RHOBH star “looks great” and admitting people in her “inner circle” and “family members” have tried Ozempic, Melissa said she’s not interested.

“They are turning into stick figures and like, I’m not about that,” she explained. “I like more of a womanly figure like Jennifer Lopez – to me, that’s a body.”

As for Jackie, who has battled anorexia for most of her life, she condemned Ozempic as “an eating disorder in a needle” in the comments section of an Instagram post.

During an episode of Two T’s in a Pod earlier this week, Kyle spoke of her body transformation, noting that after cutting out carbs, alcohol, and sugar, she “started losing weight” and “felt so good.”

“I was like, ‘Why would I go back to that?’ So, I still have not had alcohol at all, and you know, I’ll have a bite of birthday cake here and there but that’s it,” she claimed.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 premieres on Tuesday, February 7, at 9/8c on Bravo.
