When it comes to the Real Housewives, we all know that they are judged on how they look, what they wear, and of course how much they weigh. If there is one thing we can count on as women, it will be that we are judged for our looks and oftentimes, it is other women doing the judging. One housewife who has certainly seen that in action is RHOSLC's Heather Gay.

Since her introduction as a housewife, she has been seen as an example of body positivity for some, while others have taken cheap shots at her. Her own cast mate, Mary Crosby, has made jabs at Gay, including asking whether or not Gucci even made corsets in a size 14. After a while, that has to take a toll on someone, especially someone like Heather who is in the public eye for these comments.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Heather Gay is now using Ozempic to manage her weight. And it seems as if some fans of the reality star are upset with her and calling it a "copout" and even calling her a sell-out for choosing to use Ozempic to lose weight.

According to Reality Tea, Heather was asked about how she feels about the whole thing and her thoughts on being called unrelatable now. According to her, "It’s disappointing [and] sad to know that body positivity was all a big lie. Because it’s better to not be overweight."

Honestly, I don't think it's that people are disappointed in her losing the weight, but rather in the fact that she chose to use a medication that so many people either can't get or can't afford. At the same time, this is a diabetic medicine, which has its own implications in terms of people who don't necessarily need it, using it as a miracle weight loss drug.

Heather Gay may no longer be the poster housewife for body positivity, but I think that has less to do with her weight and more to do with the way she chose to lose that weight. Then again, it could also be the fact that comments like it is "better to not be overweight" are thrown around like being overweight is the worst thing a person can be.
