Kyle Richards revealed that it was diet and exercise that helped her lose weight following rumors that she was using Ozempic to do so.
“After gaining weight during the summer — on July 15 — after getting off the boat I said ‘That is it. I’m not having any sugar, any carbs, any alcohol,’” the actress, 54, told fellow “Housewives” Teddi Mellencamp and Tamra Judge on Monday’s episode of “Two Ts In A Pod.”
“A lot of people think I’ve been taking Ozempic. To clarify I’ve never taken Ozempic,” Richards clarified, referencing the diabetes drug being used to lose weight by many.
She also noted that she wasn’t using Mounjaro either, a similar diabetes medication being used for weight loss, or “any of the shots” such as Wegovy or Saxenda.
As for her sudden body transformation, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star explained that she was only going to cut sugar, carbs and alcohol for “maybe two or three weeks.” However, she changed her mind when she noticed the benefits of her new lifestyle.
“I started losing weight and I felt so good. I was like ‘why would I go back to that?’ Richards shared. “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.”
Amid rumors that she could have undergone surgery to help her lose weight, the “Halloween Ends” actress also explained that she only underwent a breast reduction surgery.
“I had a breast reduction. I wanted a tummy tuck because of the skin from having four babies, the excess skin,” she told Mellencamp and Judge. “Because no matter how much you workout, you always will have that skin, if it’s not taken away.”
Mellencamp and Judge, who are fitness gurus themselves, then confirmed that Richards did not have a tummy tuck because they could not see any scars on her.
Just last week, the Bravo celebrity was forced to shut down rumors that she using the latest Hollywood-obsessed weight-loss drug.
“I have never tried ozempic and this is not from plastic surgery,” Richards told fans after they speculated about how she got her abs.
