RHOSLC's Heather Gay Discusses Ozempic: Sneak Peek – Monomaxos

Heather Gay does not shy away from expressing her thoughts on using Ozempic for weight loss, despite her longstanding promotion of self-acceptance.

“While they were proponents of body positivity, some women are now suggesting that this was an excuse,” stated ABC News. Deborah Roberts shared in an exclusive preview on Us weekly of the documentary, IMPACT x Nightline: The Skinny Confessions: After Ozempic which will be available on Hulu on Thursday, February 29th.

Gay, 49, concurs with Roberts, 63, affirming that she was told she had been “betrayed” and was no longer considered “relatable” because she opted to use the medication prescribed for weight loss in diabetes patients.

“Discovering that body positivity was essentially a lie was disheartening,” confesses Gay. “It seems being overweight wasn’t acceptable after all.”

Roberts then mentions a comment made by Mary Cosby, Gay’s co-star on The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, regarding her designer attire.

“It’s a familiar feeling,” she reflects. “I’ve lived long enough to realize I’ve wasted numerous years blaming myself, feeling guilty, and ashamed of my inability to shed weight. If only I had known about a drug that would have facilitated weight loss with minimal effort, I would have opted for it 30 years ago, potentially leading a different life.”

Ozempic is the commercial name for semaglutide, a medication developed for managing type 2 diabetes. This injectable has gained popularity for weight loss due to its appetite-suppressing properties. Many celebrities, including Gay, have confessed to using the medicine to aid in their weight loss journey.

In November 2023, Gay disclosed that she had been using Ozempic for a while but had not experienced significant weight loss.

“I’m aboard the Ozempic trend,” she shared People at the time. “Despite being on it for an extended period, the results haven’t been stellar. Nonetheless, there’s been enough progress for people to take notice, which is encouraging.”
