This year, Ozempic has been a hot topic among Real Housewives fans and people who just like to talk about it.
The life-saving drug for diabetes has been in short supply in the US and other countries because some rich people are using it to lose weight.
Some of the Housewives have said it. Some have said it’s not true. Fans said that Erika was using the controversial drug earlier this summer.
Erika says she hasn’t done it. She’s lost weight, but she says she’ll explain why.
“And,” Erika explained, “I did it hormonally.”
“Not Ozempic-ally?” Andy asked.
Blunt, but she had to know that the question would arise.
Erika continued, “I went to the doctor and told him to take it off.”
We don’t know exactly what that means.
Erika sounds like she is saying that she lost weight in some other way, but she says that hormones are to blame.
Erika Jayne talked a lot about her own (admittedly bad) life, which was not a good look at the time for RHOBH viewers. (Bravo!) It’s too bad that a lot of talk about Housewives and Ozempic ends up promoting them.
Again, this kind of use of a drug for diabetes has been shown to cause shortages. Also, a lot of the rats and mice that were given it for testing got cancer.
We can see why Andy doesn’t use WWHL as a place to criticize the Housewives for making bad decisions. That’s what we do. We mean this as good citizens.
