Dolores Catania admitted to using Ozempic to lose weight for the past six weeks to ensure she looks her best for the upcoming Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion.

While appearing on Tuesdays Watch What Happens Live, the52-year-old reality star revealed she has been taking the medication, which is used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, to shed weight.

'I wasnt going to come to the reunion looking any bigger than anyone else, so I got on the bandwagon,' she explained to Andy Cohen.

When askedif she has experienced any side effects by the host, 54, the mother-of-twosaid only that she is 'not hungry.'

The TV personality then clarified she was 'actually [taking] Mounjaro,' which is a very similar drug to Ozempic.

Marysol Patton, who was sitting next to Catania, then marveled at how Mounjaro has become 'the fast forward' button 'to Skinnyville.'

'The reunion is in two weeks. I do have a trainer [as well],' Catania said.

After the episode aired, viewers flocked to social media to call outCatania's latest interview as'unhealthy and triggering.'

'Dolores saying its #Ozempic so proudly just took me out lol smh [shaking my head],' one Twitter user wrote.

Another asked: 'Wait isnt there a shortage of Ozempic for diabetes patients? And Dolores just casually admitted shes on it with a big smile on her face?'

A third noted that it was 'kind of messed up that Dolores and the rest of the #RHONJ cast' were 'so quick to jump on the Ozempic train as their cast mate Jackie [Goldschneider] is recovering from an eating disorder.'

Other reactions included on Twitter user exclaiming: 'OMG. Dolores is on Ozempic too. This is crazy!'

Some, however, applauded her 'for being so honest.'

Back in 2019, she shed 25 pounds by reducing how often she ate out at restaurants, cutting out specific foods from her diet and becoming more strict overall about what she ate.

'People around me that I know have been losing weight,' the Bravo star told Life & Style, before revealing that her costar Teresa Giudice's daughter, Milania, inspired her to get in shape.

She continued: 'Actually two young girls my niece Sarah and Milania Giudice. She lost so much weight and she's still losing weight.'

'I was getting heavier I go up and down in weight, I had to stop,' she added.

In order to shed weight and become healthier, she opted to take part in a 45-day diet program at Elite Health Center in New Jersey.

The plan had her making drastic changes to her daily diet, including cutting out 'all sugars, all carbs,' and oil.

Dolores added that her ex-husband Frank Catania, whom she has remained close friends with since the pair divorced over 20 years ago, didn't believe how seriously she would take the diet either.

'Everybody laughed at me, made fun of me,' the star added.

Describing the diet the adopted, Dolores said she was allowed to consume a mere 750 calories per day.

And, although she was determined to incorporate exercise into her weight-loss plan, her busy schedule got in the way.

She said: 'I really, really was motivated, I really wanted to do it. Unfortunately, I was so busy, I didn't get to work out. Had I worked out during this diet, I probably would've lost another six or seven pounds.'

The reality TV star said that, although the diet plan was effective for her, it isn't suitable for everyone.

'This is not for someone who is not committed. I did not want to spend my summer with the weight that I put on over the winter,' she said.

Dolores added that she 'needed' to complete the diet program to achieve her 'summer body'.

'Weight does not come off easily as you get older, it just doesn't. Back when we were younger, we could lose it quick.

'I knew that this was the diet for me to get my kick-start for the summer and lose the weight that I needed within a month or so,' she said.
