Melissa Gorga has weighed in on Kyle Richards’s response to the rumour she took the controversial diabetes drug Ozempic.

While The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star admitted to having a breast reduction in May last year, Kyle has rebuffed other rumours about her appearance, including the speculation that she was taking the medication Ozempic to lose weight.

After Kyle slammed the Ozempic rumour, her fellow Real Housewives star Melissa admitted she understood how the speculation came about.

“I’m not gonna lie, when I first saw her, I was like, ‘Oh she’s taking that stuff,'” Melissa revealed while appearing on a Thursday episode of Jeff Lewis Live, reports Us Weekly. “And then, when she (denied it), I’m like, ‘Oh, OK, maybe not.’ You know, I don’t know.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey personality admitted, “I didn’t even text her and ask her.”

Fans accused Kyle of using Ozempic to slim down after she shared a post on her weight loss progress.

“I am NOT taking Ozempic. Never have,” the 54-year-old replied to a comment on Instagram on 16 January. “I have never tried Ozempic and this is not from plastic surgery. I did have a breast reduction in May.”

She continued, “I’m honest about what I do. But if giving plastic surgery the credit makes you feel better then pop off sister.”

According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Ozempic is meant to be used for chronic weight management in adults with obesity or other weight-related conditions, including type-2 diabetes.
