Ozempic is the word on everybody's lips in the 'Real Housewives' universe.

The use of Ozempic has been a hot topic, especially at Bravo in recent years. When Kyle Richards returned to RHOBH's 13th season, she was noticeably thinner. People guessed she was on Ozempic, but Kyle said it was giving up alcohol and exercise that helped her. There are those who find Ozempic use shameful, while others rave about it. The ones who shame it probably feel like it's cheating. And then there are those like Caroline who have shouted their love for it from the rooftops.
