Kyle shared an Instagram post of her rocking a pink dress as she got dressed to kill amid the Los Angeles rain, later revealing it was to celebrate Crystal Kung Minkoff’s birthday.

The comments section was filled with replies commenting on Kyle’s new slimmer physique. One user took the opportunity to tell Kyle her “Ozempic body” looked great but that she also needed just to own up to using the drug because her “fellow housewives” had already spilled the beans.

In the middle of several responses, Kyle was spotted with a reply, and she named Melissa as the culprit.

“@deniselowe6 this is not true. MY fellow Housewives never said such a thing. Another Housewife from a different franchise aka Melissa stated she assumed I was but then texted an apology to me,” Kyle expressed.
