Kyle Richards has set the record straight on the never-ending rumors she’s using the diabetes drug Ozempic to boost her weight loss.
The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star has been flaunting her rock-hard abs and slimmed-down figure in recent months, and crediting the outstanding results to a lifestyle overhaul.
But the “Halloween Kills” star was soon plagued with rumors she’s turned to Ozempic to achieve the results.
“I can say that I have never tried it and I have never taken it,” Richards, 54, told Page Six.
“I’m not on any weight loss drug. If you know me, you know I have terrible anxiety so that would scare me to death. I have never, ever ever taken it.”
Richards credits her new body to grueling workouts with her personal trainer Cory Gregory, who is a trainer to the stars, which includes country singer Morgan Wade.
In fact, it was Wade who connected Richards to Gregory.
“She’s always worked out, but she’s recently been going super hard and we have the same trainer, Cory, so I kind of connected those two,” Wade told Page Six.
“She’s super strong and she’s dealing with all those people saying she’s on that weight loss drug, but she’s in such good shape and she works out all the time,” the “Wilder Days” hitmaker added.
Although Richards went about her weight loss the old-fashioned way, many of her fellow Bravolebrities have admitted to using the drug — such as Dolores Catania, Jennifer Fessler, and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi.
Other celebs, including Richards’ “RHOBH” castmate Erika Jayne, were also accused of using the drug for weight loss purposes.
“I don’t know about Erika, I have no idea, but I’m wondering why don’t people talk about her enough, she’s way skinnier than me,” Richards quipped. “I’m like, ‘Why are people talking about me?’ I’m so confused because she’s really lost a lot of weight.”
The use of Ozempic has become so widespread that it has led to nationwide shortages of the drug for those who need it to treat Type 2 diabetes.
Richards previously said she “had never heard” of the celeb-loved weightless drug until fans accused her of taking it.
“What I don’t want to get lost in this is that I want to be able to inspire people,” she told Page Six in February, noting that she had to completely change her lifestyle to reach her dream physique.
“I stopped drinking almost seven months ago, I don’t eat bad, sugar, pizza, donuts, carbs … so I’d rather be inspiring than people making up stories about me,” she continued.

The reality star alleged that she also lost weight by working out for “two hours every day.”
What’s more, she previously revealed that she had revamped her diet in a bid to shed some weight.
“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 mom of four told fellow “Housewives” Teddi Mellencamp and Tamra Judge on their podcast, “Two Ts In A Pod.”
