The 43-year-old Real Housewife has felt self-conscious about her body ever since giving birth to her four kids, refusing to strip down into a bikini and let it all hang loose, so after years of covering up she decided to take drastic action.
“The deciding factor for Kyle was the housewives trip to Las Vegas,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. “They were filming around the pool and Camile and Brandi immediately stripped down to these teeny tiny bikinis – and, needless to say, they both looked stunning.
“Kyle felt so intimidated, there was no way she was taking anything off in front of the cameras, she felt totally inadequate.
“Don’t get me wrong. Kyle was by no means overweight, she eats healthily and she works out, but she just has certain areas of her body, like most women, that she isn’t happy about. So she decided to get a little help.
“Kyle went and had full body lipo. The doctor sculpted and toned her perfectly and she was completely thrilled with the results. It wasn’t a dramatic difference, but the overall change is amazing. She looks and feels better than she ever has. She only lost about 15-20 pounds in total, but it was all from the right places, the trouble spots that she couldn’t get rid of through exercise or diet alone.
“For the first time in years, Kyle feels great in a bikini and she is flaunting the results in tight little dresses and little short shorts. She finally feels she can hold her own against her cast members and it has done wonders for her self esteem.”
