In his Oscars monologue, Jimmy Kimmel mocked Hollywood’s use of Ozempic. Kimmel pointed out the stunning weight loss across the room and joked, “Is Ozempic right for me?”.”
Celebrities and reality stars have flaunted new figures while taking the drug, which is meant to treat diabetes, but has turned into a weight-loss solution. There was no mention of any specific star, however, by Kimmel, 55.
With the exception of “Shahs of Sunset’s” Golnesa Gharachedaghi, who went so far as to describe how she injects herself, most stars have shrugged off or blasted accusations of using Ozempic or its generic, semaglutide.
On several occasions, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kyle Richards has denied using Ozempic to build a fit figure. “I had never heard of it. I had heard of it when they accused me, but I had already lost weight by the time I heard about Ozempic, so it was really frustrating for me.”
“I stopped drinking almost seven months ago, don’t eat sugar, pizza, donuts, carbs, so I’d rather inspire than be written about.” The Bravolebrity clarified that she slimmed down by working out “for two hours every day.”
As someone who has never used Ozempic or any of those diet drugs, hearing that diabetics can’t even get their hands on it makes it extra offensive to me,” she said.
