KYLE Richards showed off a naked photo of herself in order to take part in the viral Women Supporting Women challenge.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star took to Instagram to post the black and white photo of herself in the nude wearing nothing but a black hat and heels.
The reality TV star also covers her breasts with her hand and leg in the photo.
In the caption Kyle explained that the picture was only meant for her husband Mauricio Umansky for Valentine’s Day a couple of years ago, and she was worried it would leak when she started to appear on the Bravo reality show.
She wrote: “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.
Kyle, 51, continued: “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 risqué!! How scandalous! 🙈😂.”
Kyle, who shares kids Alexia, 24, Sophia, 20, and Portia, 12, with her husband, and a 31-year-old daughter from her first marriage, also touched on her family.
She wrote: “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.”
This isn’t the first time that the TV personality has shared a photo from yesteryear as she looked unrecognizable in a picture she posted which saw her stand alongside Mauricio in 1994.
She captioned the post: “This may be the last time I had a beer. Or perhaps I was holding @mumansky18’s because it looks like he may have had one too many #24yearsold.”
The longtime pair tied the knot two years after that snap was taken.
Earlier this year, Kyle was forced to defend her marriage after RHONY Jill Zarin claimed while Kyle and Maurico “are a really great couple” her and husband Bobby “felt” the struggles after appearing on the reality show together.
Kyle responded on Watch What Happens Live and said: “I did hear that. No, I just think that she was just coming from like, you know, because there is that supposed jinx with marriages and the Housewives.
“But we’re going strong, almost 25 years married.
“But thank you, Jill. I appreciate that.”
