Kyle Richards doubled down on her claim that she’s not using Ozempic for weight loss. She also revealed her workout routine, and she opened up about why she stopped drinking.
After the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shared photos of her physique on social media, many fans began to question her methods. Some suggested she achieved the results via plastic surgery, though she denied these allegations as well.
In an interview with Extra, shared by @allabouttrh on Instagram, Kyle explained she “cannot stand” when people say she’s using Ozempic.
“People that know me know that I’m up every day like 5:30, 6 a.m. the latest,” she shared. “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 went on to say it’s “really frustrating” when others believe she took the “easy way out.” Kyle also expressed her desire to be an “inspiration to people,” which is why she’s posting her “workout routine.”
With HollywoodLife, Kyle gave more insight into her exercise and health while attending the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection Concert. “I’m very aware of looking out for my health and my heart. I have lost a lot of family members to cancer, so I eat really well,” she shared. “I’m very aware of what I put in my body.”
The star added, “I work out every day. I’m usually in the gym for about two hours a day … Actually, I do a lot of cardio. It’s really, really important for women to exercise and to eat right. I can’t stress that enough.”
“Like I said, [I do not use] Ozempic or that other one that starts with an M,” said the Bravoleb. “I changed my eating after we were in Europe for a month. We were in Europe for three weeks and then Australia for a week, and I had gained weight, and I was like, ‘Okay, that’s it. No sugar, no carbs, no alcohol.’”
Speaking to uInterview at the same event, Kyle addressed why she stopped drinking alcohol. “I gave up alcohol almost seven months ago just as a health choice, and I’ve never felt better. I can see a difference in my eyes and my skin and my body – everything,” said the 54-year-old.
When her friends ask when she’ll start drinking again, Kyle answers: “I don’t know guys. I didn’t put a time on it, but I can just tell you I’ve never felt better, so I don’t know why I would start right now. But you never know. Who knows?”
