Ozempic is the latest craze to take Hollywood by storm.
While stars such as Kyle Richards have denied using the type II diabetes drug – which is injected once a week into the stomach, thigh or arm – others have been vocal about their decision to use the rapid weight loss drug.
From Elon Musk to Chelsea Handler, find out which celebrities have admitted to taking Ozempic for weight loss.
Dolores Cantina admitted she used Ozempic to lose weight in time for the taping of the season 13 reunion of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
“I wasn’t going to come to the reunion looking bigger than everyone else, so I jumped on the bandwagon,” she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live on April 4, 2023.
When the host asked about the side effects, Catania replied, “I’m just not hungry.”
“RHONJ” newbie Jennifer Fessler has all but confirmed that she used a variant of Ozempic to help her shed a few pounds.
“I lost a lot of weight. I took peptides and I don’t know if you’ve heard of meds related to [peptides] that help people lose weight,” she said on “WWHL” on March 21, 2023.
Cohen then asked Fessler if she was on Ozempic, to which she coyly replied, “You said it, I didn’t. But…whatever works, here I am.’

After showing her Instagram followers how to give themselves the injections, the former Bravolebrity shaded celebrities who denied using Ozempic or any of its alternatives.
“We know who you are,” she said. “We can see how much weight you all are losing. It’s not rocket science. Just saying.”
Chelsea Handler claims she didn’t know she was on Ozempic until a friend who was also on the weight-loss drug told her.
“I came back from vacation and injected myself with it. I went to lunch with a friend a few days later and she said, “I don’t really eat anything. I’m so sick. I’m on Ozempic,” she recalled on the January 25, 2023, Call Her Daddy podcast.
“I thought, ‘I feel sick too.’ But I had just returned from Spain and was suffering from jet lag. I was there for a month. White privilege.
After Handler told her friend she was “on semaglutide,” her friend confirmed it was the generic version of Ozempic.
The comedian later admitted that he was no longer taking his diabetes medication.
“I’m not into it anymore,” she clarified. “I’m an irresponsible drug user, but I won’t take diabetes medicine. I’ve tried it and I won’t. This is not for me. That’s not right for me.”
Remy Bader admitted she was on Ozempic before it went viral on TikTok.
The influencer said she was prescribed the drug because she was pre-diabetic and insulin resistant and had gained weight. However, when she stopped taking it, she “gained double the weight back.”
“I saw a doctor and they said, ‘100 percent it’s because you took Ozempic,'” she said on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast on Jan. 12, 2023.
“It made me think I haven’t been hungry for so long,” the TikTok star added. “I’ve lost a little weight. I didn’t want to obsess over it long term. I said to myself, “I’m betting on the second me.” [get] away, I’m going [be] I’m starving again.’
“I did and my binge eating got a lot worse. So then I kind of blamed Ozempic.”
Elon Musk admitted to using Wegovy, an injection used for chronic weight management in adults with obesity and type II diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
When a fan asked “What’s your secret?” and complimented his “ripped” physique, the billionaire tweeted on October 1, 2022. “Fasting” and “Wegovy.”
