The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum took fans by surprise when she showed off her brand new look during an appearance at her niece Portia Umansky’s bat mitzvah celebration on Saturday, October 2.
A friend of the 57-year-old, Alexander Mancia, posted a series of photos from the night to his Instagram on Monday, October 4, and one of the snaps showed him posing for the camera alongside a stunning Richards.
Richards showed up to support her niece — the daughter of her sister and former costar Kyle Richards — but it seems that all of the attention went to her new youthful appearance instead.
Twitter quickly blew up with comments regarding the TV personality’s nearly unrecognizable new look in the photo.
“Which photo editing app is Kim Richards using? Because wow. She looks great! #RHOBH,” one user on Twitter wrote.
Some users even refused to believe the photo was actually of Richards because of the glaring difference in her appearance.
“I want to know which doctor @KimRichards11 went to. She looks unreal...just absolutely incredible. I’m very happy for her. @KyleRichards can you ask her for me??” another user said.
Another user quipped, “Bruh this looks nothing like @KimRichards11. Looks like she’s been hanging around @BrandiGlanville a bit too much…”RHOBH”
Richards starred on the Bravo show with her sister for five seasons before making an exit ahead of season 6 — although she has since made some guest appearances.
As OK! previously reported, Richards’ relationship has been rocky with her former pal Brandi Glanville, who revealed back in August that the pair weren’t on speaking terms.
“This happens very often with us,” Glanville said at the time during an appearance on the “Chat Room” podcast. “But I’m talking to Kyle. We take breaks because we will murder each other.”
“I love her, I have nothing but love for her,” the former reality star added at the time.
