RHOC star Tamra Judge fires back at the “disgusting” theory that Ozempic use caused her recent hospitalization for intestinal obstruction.
On Instagram Stories, the RHOC star shared:
“Intestinal obstruction. Praying I won’t need surgery. Unfortunately, I will not be back on @two.ts.inapod tomorrow. I’m so sad @teddimellencamp. I miss you so much.”
After the news of Tamra’s hospitalization made its way around social media, some Bravo fans wondered if her intestinal obstruction was caused by Ozempic use.
“This is Ozempic, right?” one of many Twitter users questioned, which promoted Tamra to fire back.
Tamra clapped back:
“These comments that I’m on Ozempic are disgusting. I’ve suffered from intestinal problems for years. I’ve had multiple surgeries in the past 12 years.”
She continued, “Remember when you all made fun of me for not having a belly button? That was due to emergency life-saving surgery. Part of my intestines were being strangled.”
The 56-year-old added that her “grandmother died of intestinal problems.”
The Bravoleb also insisted that she’s “never been on Ozempic and personally wouldn’t use it for weight loss!”
In the past, Tamra has been outspoken over the use of Ozempic, especially in the Bravoverse.
Back in January, Tamra shared her feelings on the weight loss medicine in the comment section of an Instagram post from PEOPLE.
At the time, Tamra said:
“Ozempic is not the way to [lose weight]. Leave it for the people that need it. I can’t believe anyone would put this in their body for anything other than diabetes. It’s not a forever thing, and when these girls stop, they go into depression or severe eating disorder.”
Then, in July of this year, Tamra slammed people for taking Ozempic, calling it a “shortcut.”
“There’s a difference between skinny and fit…I’m not on Ozempic. I don’t take shortcuts,” Tamra wrote in a since-deleted tweet.
