‘RHONJ’ star Danielle Cabral slams Ozempic users: ‘Run on a f—king treadmill’

Danielle Cabral criticized people who use Ozempic for weight loss for lessening the supply for those who use the drug to treat their diabetes.

“I was with somebody today, a very dear friend of mine, who actually needs [Ozempic] for medical reasons, and cannot get it because of this stupid, bulls—t behavior,” the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star told Page Six’s Evan Real and Danny Murphy during Wednesday’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” live taping at Chelsea Table & Stage in New York City.

“But she can’t get it, she can’t get it,” Cabral said.

“RHONJ” newcomer Jennifer Fessler, who has used the drug to lose weight, tried to cut in before Cabral blurted out, “Run on a f—king treadmill.”

Quickly backtracking, the 38-year-old “True Life” alum told her co-star, “Not you, Jenn. Sorry.”

Despite the apology, Fessler took the opportunity to share why she opted to use the drug for weight loss.

“I mean, I’ve been running on a treadmill for 55 years. So, I’ve been trying. I’ve been tortured,” Fessler explained, adding that her “weight” and her relationship with food have been a “mind f—k” for her.

“… this is the first time in my life that I’ve had some relief.”

Continuing, the Bravolebrity — who shared that she once weighed 223 pounds at her “highest” — said that she had tried “everything” to control her weight.

“I was a raging bulimic,” Fessler admitted.

“I wasn’t obese when I joined [‘RHONJ’], but trust me… my head spins, my bingeing, my cuckoo-ness around food has been excruciatingly painful. This is the first time I’ve gotten some freedom around it.”

The reality star claimed that her “dear friend” is unable to get the drug to treat her diabetes due to the high demand since people began using the injectable to drop weight.

Fessler revealed earlier this week that a drug with the same active ingredient as Ozempic led to a hospitalization.

“I have been on, and I’m not going to call it Ozempic — that’s been the umbrella name. But I’ve been on semaglutide for over a year now, and I’ve lost maybe 22 pounds,” she said in Monday’s episode of her “Two Jersey J’s” podcast.

“I’m not afraid of Ozempic and I will tell you I have had an experience that was not good — and I’m pretty positive it was about the semaglutide — where I had to go to the hospital for an impacted bowel … and I’m still not nervous about it.”

While the drug may have landed her in the hospital, Fessler shared that she hasn’t “had a problem since.”

The diabetes-turned-weight loss drug has become a hot trend among Bravolebrities, and Hollywood as a whole, in recent months.

Housewives across cities have bought into the craze, including “RHONJ” Dolores Catania who confirmed she had begun taking the drug back in July.

“Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Heather Gay also fessed up to using the drug, as well as “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Emily Simpson and “Shahs of Sunset” star Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi.

However, Bravo stars such as Kyle Richards, Garcelle Beauvais and Gina Kirschenheiter have all denied using the injectable to shed some pounds.
