Kyle Richards reveals weight reduction secret after Ozempic’s denial

“If you’re the right one, you don’t have to pretend.”

Kyle Richards revealed it was diet and exercise that helped her lose weight after rumors surfaced that she was using Ozempic.

“After gaining weight over the summer – on July 15 – after getting off the boat I said, ‘This is it. I have no sugar, no carbs, no alcohol,'” the 54-year-old actress told fellow Housewives Teddi Mellencamp and Tamra Judge on Monday’s episode of Two Ts In A Pod.

“A lot of people think I took Ozempic. To be clear, I’ve never taken Ozempic,” Richards clarified, referring to the diabetes drug that many use to lose weight.

She also noted that she also didn’t take Mounjaro, a similar diabetes drug used for weight loss, or “any of the shots” like Wegovy or Saxenda.

As for her sudden body transformation, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star explained that she’ll only be cutting out sugar, carbs and alcohol for “maybe two or three weeks.” However, she changed her mind when she saw the benefits of her new lifestyle.

“I started losing weight and I felt so good. I thought, ‘Why should I go back to that?’ Richards shared. “So I still haven’t had any alcohol at all, and you know, I’ll have a slice of birthday cake here and there, but that’s it.”

Amid rumors that she could have had surgery to help her lose weight, the ‘Halloween Ends’ actress also revealed that she only underwent breast reduction surgery.

“I had a breast reduction. I wanted a tummy tuck because of four babies’ skin, the excess skin,” she told Mellencamp and Judge. “Because no matter how much you train, you’ll always have that skin if it’s not taken away from you.”

Mellencamp and Judge, who are fitness gurus themselves, then confirmed Richards didn’t have a tummy tuck because they couldn’t see any scars on her.

She had to shut down rumors several times that she was taking medication to lose weight.

Just last week, the Bravo celebrity was forced to shut down rumors that she was using the latest Hollywood-obsessed weight-loss drug.

“I’ve never tried Ozempic and it doesn’t come from plastic surgery,” Richards told fans after speculating about how she got her abs.
