Former Flipping Out star Jeff Lewis is backtracking after throwing some major shade at Kyle Richards on Watch What Happens Live.
On Tuesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, former Bravo star Jeff Lewis made some very shady comments about his good friend and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards.
During a game called “Jeff, What’s your issue?” the Flipping Out alum called out Kyle Richards over the rumors that she is on Ozempic and is having a romantic relationship with a woman.
“Kyle and I are friends, and I’m pissed,” Jeff quipped. “She didn’t tell me she’s a lesbian on Ozempic.”
Heather McDonald, who was also a guest on WWHL, added: “Did you guys know that one of the side effects of Ozempic is lesbianism? Your ring falls off. Then your ring slips into someone else.”
As Bravo fans know, for months, Kyle Richards has shut down rumors that she lost weight due to taking the weight loss medication Ozempic.
Many Bravo fans weren’t sure if Jeff was poking fun at the gossip or if he was being shady AF.
Turns out, Jeff was joking, and his comments were all in good fun. However, it doesn’t seem that Kyle Richards appreciated being the butt of Jeff’s joke.
“When I brought up Kyle Richards, she’s a friend of mine, I was totally joking. I was poking fun at the absurdity of all the rumors going around that she’s a lesbian, that she’s on Ozempic. I simply meant it as a joke,” Jeff told TMZ on Wednesday in NYC.
He then noted that he did text Kyle but had yet to hear back from her at that point in time.
“I texted her this morning at 6:30 a.m. [and] I am yet to hear back,” Jeff revealed, adding that he “hopes” Kyle isn’t angry with him over the comments.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is reportedly returning to Bravo for season 13 in late 2023. Some reports suggest season 13 will premiere on November 1.
