Kyle Richards shared a slideshow of photos of her “life lately” on Instagram on Monday, which included photos from the gym, and she was immediately met with rumors of Ozempic use, which she quickly shot down.
As the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member continues to be accused of using the diabetes medication for weight loss, Kyle reacted to someone who claimed she dropped 50 pounds, gave a nod to her muscular physique, and offered an update on her sobriety.
On June 19, Kyle, 54, put her toned frame on display.
After Kyle posted a couple of gym selfies, in which her arm muscles were in clear view, the RHOBH star, who eliminated sugar, carbs, and alcohol from her diet last summer, was asked by a fan if she was still sober.
“Yep. Almost one year (on July 15th),” she confirmed.
And when another wondered if she has any party tips for others who have embarked on an alcohol-free lifestyle, Kyle said that she indulges in a mocktail from time to time.
“I don’t usually feel like I need anything BUT now and then I may have a mocktail. And this season I did have a non-alcoholic beer a few times,” she revealed.
Also in the comments section, fans accused Kyle of using Ozempic for weight loss.
“I have never tried Ozempic or any of those medicines so stop spreading lies. You don’t know me,” she told one critic.
“I’m sorry but you don’t get muscles from that so kindly,” she told another, adding the middle finger emoji.
Kyle also reacted to a hater who suggested she lost 50 pounds with the medication intended for type two diabetics.
“Stop lying and just cop to it. We women would respect it more. Everyone is on it! You struggled for years and now all of sudden you can just work out and lose 50lbs?” they asked.
“I didn’t lose 50 pounds you fool,” Kyle replied. “I’m done explaining to people who don’t want to hear the truth.”
During an interview with Extra in February, Kyle said she’s not only changed her diet but also taken on an intense fitness regimen.
“People that know me know that I’m up every day like 5:30, 6 a.m. the latest,” she revealed. “I’m in the gym for two hours. I really put a lot of effort into my diet and exercise and taking care of myself.”
She also said that the ongoing Ozempic rumors are “really frustrating” and said she hopes to be an “inspiration to people.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime later this year.
