However, Golnesa isn’t the only celebrity in the Bravo-verse to speak about Ozempic, as four months earlier, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards denied claims that she was also taking the drug.
The Halloween Ends actress responded to one user under a Jan. 5 Instagram picture of herself and her girlfriends—including former Real Housewife Teddi Mellencamp—after a workout, writing, “I am NOT on ozempic.”
In a second comment, Kyle said, “Never have been.”
Instead, the reality star credits a lean diet and intense workout routine for her body changes.
“Like I said, not Ozempic or that other one that starts with an ‘M,'” Kyle shared during an Amazon Live in January. “I changed my eating after we were in Europe for a month. We were in Europe for three weeks and then Australia for a week, and I had gained weight, and I was like, ‘Okay, that’s it.’ No sugar, no carbs, no alcohol.”
When E! News previously reached out for comment, a rep for Novo Nordisk shared that Ozempic is “not approved for chronic weight management.” The brand’s statement said it’s intended to treat type 2 diabetes, improve blood sugar and reduce the risk of major cardiovascular events for adults with the condition.
