Rumor mill: Brittany Cartwright is the latest celebrity to deny using Ozempic , the diabetes medication that doubles as a weight loss drug
Speculation: In her latest Instagram post, the 34-year-old former Vanderpump Rules personality was accused by some fans of turning to the popular prescription to slim down
Shut down: When one follower commented, ‘omg ozempic,’ Cartwright replied, ‘It’s actually the .5 zoom on the iPhone camera lol’
‘Ugh please don’t tell me you jumped on the ozempic band wagon .. you were fine just the way you were .. curves are beautiful,’ someone else wrote under the post.
Another person added, ‘Ozempic queen,’ while a different fan simply said, ‘Omg skinnayyyy beautiful queen inside and out.’
While Cartwright denied turning to the buzzed about medicine, she did not share exactly how she modified her figure.
Celebrities including Elon Musk and Remi Bader have revealed they used the drug to help trim fat.
Many other famous faces who have looked svelte recently are rumored to have used them.
The drug act like a hormone in the brain which causes people to feel less hungry and slow the clearing of food from the stomach — spurring weight loss.
Other stars who have vehemently denied using Ozempic include Khloe Kardashian and Kyle Richards.
When Khloe was accused of dropping pounds with the substance, she wrote online, ‘Let’s not discredit my years of working out.’

Earlier this month on their When Reality Hits podcast Brittany and Jax ripped Lala Kent’s ex Randall Emmett for not paying back a $75,000 loan.
‘I’m a little pissed off and its annoying,’ Taylor said of the situation with Emmett, who in the past was publicly accused of not paying back loans amid a 2019 rift with 50 Cent.
‘Jax has been nicer than he should have been because we all know who Randall is – he was Lala’s ex, her baby daddy and he treated her terribly and did all this terrible stuff while they were dating,’ Cartwright said of the film producer.
Cartwright said her spouse and Randall ‘got super close while he was dating’ Kent, and that while she hadn’t seen Emmett since his split with her friend Kent, Taylor remained in touch with him.
‘Jax had done this business deal with Randall so he still had to keep in contact – not like seeing him or hanging out or anything like that – but he was having to talk to him because he owed him so much money,’ Cartwright explained.
Taylor explained the details that led to the financially-fueled falling out, noting that he initially went into business with the producer during the timeframe Emmett was dating Kent.
‘Randall and I had a deal where I would invest in movies with him,’ Taylor said. ‘I invested into three movies where basically, they were bridge loans and I would get a producer credit.
‘I invest in the movie, I wait till the movie airs and then I would get my money back – there’s really no losing in this, it’s a pretty easy thing, he does it with his mom and dad, too.’

Taylor said, ‘We trusted him and I’ve learned my lesson big time,’ adding that prior to the latest loan, Emmett had made good on all previous loans.
He added that just prior to the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020, Emmett called him and asked him if he wanted to invest $100,000 into a burgeoning project.
The coronavirus shut down the film project, but when he contacted Emmett, he said he received ‘some bulls*** excuse’ about where the money went.
Jax noted that Emmett was still working on separate movies, but did not include him in those, nor did he pay the money back.
