Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna gave her Instagram followers something to laugh about on Tuesday when she posted a throwback video of her leading an aerobics class. In the video, the actress/reality TV star is rocking a plunging, purple bodysuit with a gold belt and matching headband as she shows off her moves in front of a team of extras. She does a couple of energetic dance steps during the clip and, at one point, punches directly at the camera, a move that seems like it was improvised.

It looks like Lisa sourced her post from a meme since there’s writing above the video. The quote is a reference to Richard Simmons, the eccentric aerobics instructor popular during the 1980s and ’90s.

Lisa’s clip has been viewed close to 75,000 times as of this writing. In the comments, several Instagram followers used variations of the laughing emoji to express their reaction to the clip. Others found the words to share how the clip had tickled them.

“Good morning, Richard @lisarinna thanks for starting my day off with a smile,” one person wrote.

“Legit lmfaoooooooooo @lisarinna you are hilarious,” a second added.

One fan suggested that the clip should be updated with a couple of special guests.

“You need to recreate this with your fellow RH cast members as the backup,” they wrote.

Another Instagram user said they’d be happy to add her video to their workout schedule.

“Ok… but I really love the video & would follow along any day,” they wrote.–/

While Lisa didn’t share the name of the fitness DVD that the clip is from, a quick Google search reveals that it’s a part of Dance Body Beautiful, a workout program inspired by Lisa’s stint on Season 2 of Dancing with the Stars in 2007.

“I did Dancing with the Stars and really my whole body transformed back into a body that I had when I was 18 years old,” she said in the trailer for the DVD. “Dancing changed so much about me. It changed my body so dramatically…It made me feel confident and alive and free and not only did I look great, I had so much fun.”
