“Makeup free sitting on the beach in my Cabana with this beautiful swimwear number by my girl @lillyghalichi @wantmylook,” she captioned, thanking the Shahs of Sunset star and hashtagging the post #anti-aging. The mom to Bryson and Brentt posed on a plush white couch in a leopard print one-piece with a deep V-neck and black tasseled wedges with a gold block heel. She pulled her blonde shoulder-length locks into a low ponytail with a center part to show off her high cheekbones. 

The Fashion Police cohost continued to show her 1.8 million followers what she was working with and posted a full-length shot of her poolside look.

“Sometimes you have to just clear your mind! PS: looks like i see a roll coming on my side! Calling the Plastic Surgeon Now,” she joked in another Instagram post. And while flaunting her lean gams, she continued with the “#petty” wisecracks. “Damn these some long skinny brown legs! I thought they were fat and I know I told that plastic surgeon to bleach my skin! Calling his ass now”

Perhaps her jokes were strategic shade toward Lil’ Kim fans. She and the Beehive began feuding after Leakes used the “Lighters Up” rapper as an example of someone who’s had extensive plastic surgery in a post about the practice on her new blog, The Fab Gab. 

“Ask yourself these 5 questions before getting plastic surgery… #OwnItHunni #BeReal,” she tweeted along with a link to the post Tuesday, June 28. 

“Built Jurassic Park a– bitch chilling wit one nostril,” @lilkimvideos_, a fan account, Instagrammed after Leakes’ tweet.

But Leakes, who remained unbothered by the insults, has been open about getting work done to her face. “I had my nose done again. Yes, I did. It was a real medical reason why I had to get it done again. My cartilage was growing in my nose, and my tip was touching the top of my lip,” Leakes explained on the Thursday, June 16, episode of Watch What Happens Live.
