Kyle Richards is taking aim at Melissa Gorga for assuming she is using the diabetes drug Ozempic to lose weight.

Weeks after the Real Housewives of New Jersey star appeared on Jeff Lewis‘ SiriusXM radio show, where she admitted to thinking the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member was taking the prescription, Kyle was met with even more speculation from fans on her Instagram page.

It all started after Kyle shared the photo seen below, which she posted as she attended the 40th birthday party of her RHOBH co-star, Crystal Kung-Minkoff.

After posting the slideshow, Kyle faced backlash from critics, who remain convinced that she’s using Ozempic despite her many denials.

“Ozempic body. 100%. You look beautiful but just tell the truth. Your fellow housewives have told on you. It’s not a big deal but it is when you lie about it,” one person wrote.

“This is not true,” Kyle replied, and then she mentioned Melissa by name.

“MY fellow Housewives never said such a thing. Another housewife from a different franchise aka Melissa stated she assumed I was but then texted an apology to me,” Kyle revealed.

In her interview with Jeff, the RHONJ castmate said, “I’m not gonna lie, when I first saw her, I was like, ‘Ooh she’s taking that stuff’ … 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.”

Meanwhile, Jeff confirmed he was convinced that Kyle was using Ozempic.

“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 stated.

Also on Instagram, Kyle responded to a second critic, who targeted her for supposedly using Ozempic and taking it from actual diabetics.

“Ozempic does a hell of a job, unfortunately for true diabetes patients, they have a hard time getting the drug because elitists like Kyle and her cronies are taking it to look like anorexic geriatrics,” the person shared.

“I don’t take it and never have. Stop spreading lies. You don’t know me,” Kyle clapped back.
