Erika Jayne says she didn’t use Ozempic, but her explanation for losing weight raises new questions.

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.

Erika Jayne Denies Using Ozempic But Her Weight Loss

At the beginning of August 2023, Erika Jayne was on Watch What Happens Live! (Bravo)
When Erika Jayne was out and about early this year, people noticed that she had lost weight.

“Ozempic,” a lot of people thought. If that were true, she wouldn’t be the first on the franchise.

But hey, at least no one was still calling her a “criminal” because of what happened with her ex. Progress! Maybe.

This week, she was a guest on the show Watch What Happens Live! and talked to the host, Andy Cohen, about the question.

Andy said that she looks like a “whisper of herself,” which is a very nice way of saying she looks like a copy of herself.

Erika confirmed, “Yes, I did lose weight.”

“And,” Erika explained, “I did it hormonally.”

“Not Ozempic-ally?” Andy asked.

Blunt, but she had to know that the question would arise.

In September 2022, Erika Jayne wore this shimmering emerald green top for a remote interview. (Bravo) She then said, “I was going through menopause.”

“So I wrote everything down,” she said.

Not many women lose a lot of weight during menopause because lower estrogen levels affect things like body mass. It does happen, though.

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 Resents Being BadmouthedErika Jayne Resents Being Badmouthed
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne openly resented being badmouthed by castmates last season. (Bravo!) If Erika sounds like she’s being vague on purpose, it may be for a good reason. Out of care for the audience.

Erika said, “We’re having this conversation in Beverly Hills, and one of the cast members has an eating disorder.”

She is obviously talking about Crystal Kung Minkoff, who has had problems with bulimia.

For the confessional camera, Crystal Kung Minkoff looks stunning. (Bravo!) Erika made it clear that she wanted to make sure her talk about weight loss “didn’t upset anyone.”

She means that literally, which is the right way to use the word. Not in that annoying “get you angry” way. Not what trigger means at all.

This term, which can also be used for PTSD and OCD, refers to eating disorders in this case. It is a disorder, and for some people, that means that talking about weight and losing weight can make them do things that are very bad for them.

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.
