RHOM: Lydia Schiavello laughs off Chyka Photoshop drama in Melbourne


Real Housewives of Melbourne’s Lydia Schiavello laughs off THAT Photoshop drama… after denying she edited Chyka Keebaugh to look heavier

Lydia Schiavello put on a brave face as she stepped out in Melbourne after denying she edited a photo of her RHOM co-star Chyka Keebaugh to make her look heavier.

The 50-year-old socialite laughed off the Photoshop drama as she went for a walk with her friend Sam Frantzeskos around her neighbourhood on Thursday.

Lydia flashed a smile as she enjoyed some fresh air with her male companion.

Moving on: Lydia Schiavello put on a brave face on Thursday as she stepped out in Melbourne after denying she edited a photo of her RHOM co-star Chyka Keebaugh to make her look fat

She dressed casually in black leggings, a pink T-shirt and comfortable sneakers.

Lydia teamed her outfit with pink sunglasses and a matching beanie with the word ‘Love’ written on the front.

The sighting comes after she claimed she did not maliciously Photoshop an image of fellow Housewife Chyka to make her look heavier. 

She claimed on Wednesday she did not edit the photo herself but had instead been sent it by someone else, and naively uploaded it to Instagram because she thought it ‘looked great’.

‘Hi Chyka,’ she wrote on Instagram. ‘I was sent many old photos of previous seasons of Real Housewives of Melbourne. 

‘I thought this was a great photo of us all and it’s something we can’t do now. It was never my intention to offend anyone. Sending love.’

After deleting the edited picture from her main grid, she shared another photo on her Stories of Chyka looking svelte in a leopard-print dress, and captioned it: ‘Last post deleted. My apology to all.

‘After being fat shamed I would not intentionally do that to any one.’

She then shared one last photo of herself and Chyka looking glamorous, and wrote: ‘Oldie but a goodie! I hope everyone in this lockdown are looking after themselves.

‘A walk, a podcast, a great book, cooking great food, plenty of water all feed the soul. Sending love to all.’

Edited: The saga began on Monday when Lydia shared a 2014 throwback on Instagram which showed her and Chyka with fellow Housewives Pettifleur Berenger and Janet Roach. (Pictured: the edited version Lydia posted on Monday)

Original: Eagle-eyed fans noticed Chyka looked larger than usual around the torso, so went through the archives to find the original photo from seven years ago. (Pictured: the original photo uploaded in 2014)

The saga began on Monday when Lydia shared a throwback photo from 2014 which showed her and Chyka with fellow Housewives Pettifleur Berenger and Janet Roach.

But eagle-eyed fans noticed Chyka looked larger than usual around the torso, so went through the archives to find the original photo from seven years ago. 

In the original photo uploaded in 2014, Chyka was noticeably slimmer, leading fans to conclude that Lydia – or someone else – had used a warp tool to make her look fat.

‘Dying at the Photoshop. Poor Chyka doesn’t deserve the extra 47kg, Lydia,’ one fan commented, while another added: ‘Someone please find the original of this photo and bring justice for poor Chyka!’

Explanation: Lydia later said she did not edit the photo herself but had instead been sent it by someone else, and naively uploaded it to Instagram because she thought it 'looked great'
