Posting a black and white photo on Instagram for #ChallengeAccepted, Kyle posed nude with stilettos, fedora and tie (channeling Demi Moore in her infamous role in Striptease.) The Beverly Hills beauty captioned the photo stating:
I struggled to post a photo because I didn’t understand what’s so “challenging” about posting a black and white photo of ourselves. But so many of the wonderful women in my life messaged me “challenging” me ( I tagged them) So I decided to post this picture. About this picture…I took this picture for my husband for Valentine’s Day one year. I was nervous to take it and then when I was asked to do #RHOBH I was nervous to accept doing the show because I was worried this photo would surface. I thought it was THAT risque?!! How scandalous! ?? Now here I am posting it because it DOES make me feel empowered! I am proud to come from a family of all women , fortunate to be surrounded by such amazing women in my life and to be the mother of 4 incredible women and soon to be woman ( Portia) Thank you to all the women that support me & love me. I love, support & appreciate you #challengeaccepted
I’ve seen plenty of black and white photos in my feed and have heard mixed messages of how it got started. I have heard that it’s about women empowering women, but also that it started as result of an increase in violence against women in Turkey with the message being lost along the way. If the latter is the case then I would say it’s safe to say that the original message definitely has been lost down the line!
RHOBH airs tonight on Bravo.
