Chelsea Handler, Kyle Richards and More Celebrities Who’ve Spoken About the Ozempic Weight Loss Trend

Ozempic has become a hot topic when it comes to weight loss — with some stars confirming they have used the drug while others denied it.

Chelsea Handler admitted during a January 2023 episode of the “Call Her Daddy” podcast that she unknowingly took the Type 2 diabetes medication, which is traditionally used to improve glycemic control. She explained her anti-aging doctor prescribed her Semaglutide, which is another name for Ozempic, but Handler stopped using it after learning more.

“I’m not on it anymore. That’s too irresponsible,” Handler clarified. “I’m an irresponsible drug user, but I’m not gonna take a diabetic drug.”

Kyle Richards, meanwhile, was accused of using the diabetes medicine in January 2023 after posting a picture of herself showing off her abs in a bathing suit. “I am NOT taking Ozempic. Never have,” Richards commented on Page Six’s Instagram at the time.
