Brittany Cartwright quits rumors that she takes type 2 diabetes drug Ozempic to lose weight.

Thursday has the Vanderpump Rules alum, 34, posted a series of photos to Instagram, starting with a mirror selfie posing in a t-shirt and shorts. In the comments, several followers accused her of taking Ozempic, an FDA-approved prescription medication for people with type 2 diabetes.

It is one of the brand names for semaglutide and tirzepatide – also known as Wegovy and Mounjaro – which work in the brain to influence satiety. The drugs have become popular in Hollywood in recent months; many people who do not have diabetes use them for weight loss.

Critics reacted quickly to Cartwright’s photos. One user commented, “Omg Ozempic.” Another wrote: “I think it’s photoshop. She looks much thinner in the picture on the left than she does on the right and the picture on the right is a very recent one.”

The reality star tried to quell the rumours: “It’s actually the .5 zoom on the iPhone camera lol,” Cartwright replied.

Last year, Cartwright opened up about her weight loss journey, admitting that she was “incredibly proud” of her body after carrying and giving birth to her son, Cruz, but that she was ready for a reset.

“I want to be the best version of myself for my son,” Cartwright told PEOPLE at the time. “Since I’ve had Cruz, postpartum weight loss has been a struggle and something I’ve been very clear about in my community.”

She said she wanted to lose “at least 30 pounds”, hoping to “get healthier for myself and my family”.

Cartwright said she still gets those negative comments “and they’re still hurtful.”

“But I remind myself that every body is powerful and beautiful, and I’m extremely proud of mine,” she added.

Cartwright isn’t the only star who has recently denied using Ozempic for weight loss.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards continues to deny taking the drug while facing endless accusations about her slimmed-down appearance. Earlier this week, she spoke to PageSix about why she will never jump on the Ozempic bandwagon.

“I’m not on a weight loss drug,” she said. “If you know me, you know I have terrible anxiety, so that would terrify me. I have never, ever taken it.”

Richards attributes her impressive new physique to her rigorous workout routine and strict nutrition plan.

“I work so hard and I wanted to be a positive role model or an inspiration to people who have had children and are my age and show that you can get in shape,” she told PEOPLE in March. “So it just felt like they wanted to take that away from you and I was like, ‘That’s just cheating.'”
