Tamra Judge, star of the “Real Housewives of Orange County,” recently criticized those who use the weight loss drug Ozempic, popularized by celebrities like Kim Kardashian.

She emphasized the importance of hard work over shortcuts, Page Six reports.

Judge expressed her views in a now-deleted tweet, stating, "There's a difference between skinny and fit…I'm not on Ozempic. I don't take shortcuts."

However, she did not specify who her comments were directed at.

Co-Star Controversy: Her ex-friend and co-star, Jennifer Pedranti, subtly criticized Judge around the time of her tweet on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," claiming she was more fit than Judge. Pedranti has not publicly addressed whether she has ever used Ozempic.

Judge joins celebrities like Kyle Richards, Garcelle Beauvais, and Gina Kirschenheiter who have denied using the diabetes drug.
