'Shahs of Sunset' Star Golnesa 'GG' Gharachedaghi Admits to Using Generic Brand of Ozempic for Weight Loss

Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi has revealed that she is taking weekly shots for weight loss.

Earlier this week, the 41-year-old Shahs of Sunset alum revealed that she on week four of taking semaglutide shots – one of the generic brands for Ozempic, Wegovy or Mounjaro – to lose weight and that it was prescribed to her by a doctor.

“Unfortunately, because of my health, I had to get a lot of steroids injections last year, which caused me to really pack on some weight,” GG explained in a video shared on Instagram. “I’ve been having a very, very, very hard time getting rid of that weight.”

GG went on to explain that she was prescribed the medication from her doctor, New York-based Tabasum Mir. The medication was first prescribed for people with Type 2 diabetes, and now Wegovy has also been approved for weight loss.

“I did what all the people are doing, and lying about. I’m on the weight-loss shots, honey, okay?” GG said. “I’m just not gonna lie about it, because I always keep it real about what is fake.”

GG said that she was 137lbs before she started using the drug – which targets areas of the brain to make people feel full faster – and as of February 28, she is down to 126lbs.

“I have never, ever in my life been over 121-22lbs. other than being pregnant,” GG said. So that may not seem like a lot to some people, but for me, it really is.”

Also in the video, GG walked viewers through the process of injecting the drug into her stomach “with a really, really small needle”, revealing that she is on a dosage of “20 units,” which is double what she began using for the first two weeks.

After opening up about her decision to use the drug, GG slammed other celebrities are she believes are also using the drug for weight loss and lying about it.

“If you see people out there who just got skinny so fast all of a sudden and claimed they got healthy for the first time in their lives or that they got sober from alcohol that was causing them to gain so much weight…most likely, they’re just doing the shots,” GG said.

“We know who you are. We see how skinny y’all are getting,” GG added. “It’s not rocket science, just saying.”

In the caption for her video, GG wrote, “I’m not sure why so many people deny taking the shots. Y’all can judge in the comments section below, but for those interested in trying this, you should hit up my doctor @tabasum and get started.”

GG‘s admission comes after another Bravo-lebrity admitted that Ozempic is very popular right now in the Real Housewives world.
