Sutton Stracke shades Erika Jayne’s claim she lost weight from menopause
Sutton Stracke remains skeptical of Erika Jayne’s claim that menopause was the key to her weight loss. In an interview with Us Weekly, the 51-year-old expressed her doubts, stating, “I’ve been through menopause, but I still don’t look like that. But okay,” accompanied by a visible eye roll. Despite her skepticism, Stracke did commend her “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” co-star on her slimdown, exclaiming, “Good lord, I need to do whatever she’s doing.”
Stracke’s shade towards Jayne comes after the latter revealed on “Watch What Happens Live” that her weight loss was a result of hormonal changes during menopause, not the use of the drug Ozempic. When host Andy Cohen commented that Jayne looked like a mere shadow of her former self, she claimed to have shed the pounds while navigating menopause. Stracke, however, dismissed Jayne’s recent confession with an eye roll.
The conversation took a turn when fellow guest Jackie Hoffman questioned the possibility of losing weight during menopause. Jayne responded by explaining that she requested her doctor to help her lose weight and clarified that she didn’t want to trigger anyone watching, particularly in light of cast member Crystal Kung Minkoff’s struggle with an eating disorder. Despite her skepticism, Stracke admitted that she wanted to follow Jayne’s weight loss regimen.
Andy Cohen has previously questioned other Bravo celebrities about their use of Ozempic, with some admitting to trying the diabetes drug. Dolores Catania confessed in April to joining the bandwagon, expressing her desire not to appear larger than her co-stars during the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion. Jennifer Fessler also hinted at the same in the previous month, implying that she had found a method that worked for her. While some reality stars, including Kyle Richards, have denied using Ozempic, Emily Simpson admitted to taking semaglutide in a June interview.
In a recent episode of TheFantasyTimes’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast, “Botched” star Terry Dubrow cautioned against shaming individuals who use Ozempic for weight loss. He encouraged celebrating the breakthrough it represents for obesity and opening up a dialogue on the topic.
Sutton Stracke isn’t buying Erika Jayne’s claim that menopause helped her lose weight.
“I’ve been through the menopause, but I still don’t look like that. But OK,” the 51-year-old told Us Weekly on Thursday, visibly rolling her eyes.
Stracke did, however, go on to praise her “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” co-star’s slimdown.
“Good lord,” the party planner gushed. “I need to do whatever she’s doing.”
Stracke’s shade came one week after Jayne, 52, alleged to “Watch What Happens Live” viewers that she shed pounds “hormonally,” not “Ozempic-ally.”
When host Andy Cohen said that the “Pretty Mess” singer looked like “a whisper” of herself,” Jayne claimed she “took it all down” while “going through menopause.”
She doubled down when fellow guest Jackie Hoffman questioned anyone actually “los[ing] weight in menopause.”
Jayne replied, “I went to the doctor and I said get it off me.”
She was quick to note that she didn’t want her comments to “trigger” anyone watching, explaining, “We have this conversation in Beverly Hills and we have a cast member with an eating disorder, [Crystal Kung Minkoff].”
Cohen, 55, has asked many other Bravolebrities about their Ozempic use in recent months, with some admitting to trying the diabetes drug.
Can’t get enough ‘Real Housewives?’
In April, Dolores Catania confessed to hopping “on the bandwagon,” saying she didn’t want to attend the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion “looking any bigger than anyone else.”
Her co-star Jennifer Fessler hinted at the same the previous month, telling Cohen, “You said it, I didn’t. But … whatever works, here I am.”
Emily Simpson copped to taking semaglutide in a June “Jeff Lewis Live” interview, but other reality stars — Kyle Richards included — have repeatedly denied using it themselves.
“Botched” star Terry Dubrow warned against Ozempic-shaming people in an episode of TheFantasyTimes’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast last month.
“If somebody’s on Ozempic because they wanna lose weight, [we should] celebrate that we have a breakthrough for obesity,” Heather Dubrow’s husband told listeners in July of “open[ing] up the dialogue.”
