Amy Schumer thinks that her famous friends need to “be real” about their sometimes extreme ways to lose weight.
“Everyone’s like, ‘Oh, smaller portions!’” the comedian said Thursday on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.” “Like, shut the fuck up. You’re on Ozempic. Or one of those things.”
Ozempic, which is used to control blood sugar levels in people with diabetes, has made a lot of noise in recent months as an off-label weight loss drug. NBC News reported in January that the drug’s growing success has made it hard for people with diabetes to get the medicine they need because so many people are using it to lose weight.

“Be real with the people,” Schumer said. “When I got lipo, I was like, I got lipo, OK?”
In order to be honest, the “I Feel Pretty” star told Cohen that she had tried Ozempic herself, but it made her feel very bad. The drug made her so tired that she couldn’t even play catch with her son. She told herself, “OK, this isn’t livable for me.”

Cohen got in trouble in April when fans said he praised celebrities who had lost weight with the drug. Cohen said that he wasn’t celebrating their weight loss, but just pointing out the obvious.
“I’m trying to deliver the goods for my audience watching,” he said in defense. “I mean, if Dolores [Catania, of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey”] shows up looking 15 pounds lighter, I gotta find out how it happened.”
