Kyle Richards found herself in a bit of a bind after she posted a hot bikini photo and stated she needs to lose 10 pounds. The 51-year-old caught heat for shaming her own body weight after many pointed out she looks perfect and shouldn’t be so hard on herself. Sharing the gorgeous snap on her Instagram, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star set Instagram on fire by dressing her hourglass figure in a skintight and revealing one-piece swimsuit.
Posting a throwback from a trip to Greece, Kyle Richards posed while flaunting her unbelievable body in the brown cut-out suit. Showing off her fit legs and ample behind with the cheeky Brazilian cut, the Bravo star looked fantastic. Showcasing her thin frame with the risqué sides cut-out, the mom of four left phones steaming with the sexy snap, which she posted on Tuesday, April 5. But fans were left stopping in their tracks after they read her harsh caption on her current body weight.
Praising her toned frame at the time of taking the bikini snap, Kyle Richards revealed that her co-star Erika Jayne gave her the confidence to pose for the throwback. “I didn’t want to take this photo but glad @theprettymess made me,” she wrote. After that, things went south and quickly. “Now I need to use it as incentive to take off the 10 LBS I have gained in quarantine,” she continued. Adding that the struggle is real, Kyle Richards stated, “I am not ready to be set free into the wild yet! I work out everyday but have to stop with the ????? After Cinco de Mayo I am done… I am telling you, finito bandito ??.” Her body-shaming caption left fans with a whole lot of feelings.
Immediately, her followers began slamming her for worrying about her weight at a time like this. They also encouraged her to not be so hard on herself. “An added 10lbs is so much worse? Come on girl… you’re better than that. Body positivity goes along way… ❤️,” one person wrote. “If there’s anything this quarantine experience should teach us is that who freaking cares about how much weight we put on or off It could be so much worse. Embrace those extra pounds. Besides you have all the money in the world to take them off in a week,” added another. “Common don’t be hard on yourself. This is a strange time. There’s more important things,” posted a third. Kyle Richards has yet to comment on the controversy.
