Amid the unending swirling rumors and speculation, the reality TV star is setting the record straight for the umpteenth time her alleged weight loss journey with the medication.
Kyle Richards Dispels Ozempic Weight Loss Rumors, Citing Anxiety Concerns
Originally developed as a medication for treating type 2 diabetes, Ozempic has expanded its scope and gained approval as a weight loss aid. Using the drug to shed unwanted fat has garnered attention within the Bravo community, with notable figures such as Dolores Catania, Jennifer Fessler, and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi openly acknowledging their drug use.
Furthermore, allegations of fellow “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast member Erika Jayne using the drug for weight loss have also emerged, adding to the discussion surrounding the drug’s role in the entertainment industry.
However, Richards has continued to deny using it and candidly revealed her concerns and fears about the controversial drug, shedding light on her decision to end the misleading claims.
The actress has proudly showcased her toned physique and credited her transformation to a comprehensive lifestyle overhaul in recent months. Despite her remarkable physical change, the 54-year-old has vehemently denied involvement with the drug.
Speaking with Page Six, the “Halloween Kills” star clarified, “I can say that I have never tried it, and I have never taken it.” She emphasized, “I’m not on any weight loss drug. If you know me, you know I have terrible anxiety, which would scare me to death. I have never, ever taken it.”
The TV personality attributed her fit body to her intense workout sessions with her trainer, Cory Gregory, renowned for training A-listers like her friend, country singer Morgan Wade.
The rumors have been so persistent toward the “Time Express” guest star that she had to address the trolls who would not let her be in February. Taking to her Instagram Story, the “Halloween Ends” actress delivered a powerful message directly aimed at her detractors.
The statement began by acknowledging the challenge of changing someone’s perspective using factual information. It continued, “This happens due to ‘motivated reasoning,’ a psychology term that refers to the way people usually believe whatever they want to believe and use the flimsiest piece of evidence to justify that belief, even when there is plenty of verified evidence to disprove it.”
Displaying contentment with the tone of her message, Richards took to the caption and humorously remarked, “This explains a lot 😂 #trolls .”
‘The Watcher In The Woods’ Star Disassociates From Fitness Brand Claiming Credit For Weight Loss Transformation
The mother-of-four publicly distanced herself from a fitness brand that used her image, falsely claiming to have contributed to her weight loss journey. The Blast reported that Richards took to social media to vehemently criticize the brand and advise her followers against purchasing their product.
The advertisement surfaced on various social media platforms, falsely claiming that the “CHiPs’ guest actress had achieved significant weight loss by using their product. She took matters into her own hands to social media to set the record straight, posting a screenshot of the deceptive ad and warning her followers, “Do not buy these!”
She added pictures of BioScience’s Keto-ACV gummies and emphasized further, “This website is a scam using my images. This is a fake ad. I have not endorsed this product or ever taken anything like this… These are not my words in these ads.”
The “Little House on the Prairie” star also claimed that she was unaware of the drug before the controversy surrounding her physique. She clarified that her weight loss journey commenced after significant dietary adjustments, including giving up alcohol, bread, pasta, and sugar.
“The New Celebrity Apprentice” contestant stated, “I eat protein, fruit, and vegetables. Now that I am the weight I want to be, I will have the occasional small amount of pasta, etc., once in a while. But no alcohol since July 15.”
